There is a part of you that you have been told to deny; an incredible side of you that society has told you to ignore, reject and mistrust – all because this side of you didn’t fit the way the world was perceived 400 years ago. And accepting and understanding this hidden facet of you could be the most empowering and enlightening thing you could ever do for yourself.
You are a machine.
“Of course I’m not a machine!” you say. “I’m a living, breathing human being!” But the trouble is that much of what you have been taught about yourself – much of what you have come to believe is true – is based on this exact premise. That you are a machine; predictable, programmable and logically perfect.
This concept arose around 400 years ago when scientists like Isaac Newton were building the foundations of what has become conventional science. It was the beginning of the Industrial Age and machines were starting to revolutionise the world; these shiny, exquisite, perfectly logical contraptions were changing the entire landscape of human society.
Eventually, this concept of – and reverence for – machinery infiltrated the thinking of the time. Scientists began to envision the universe as a giant clock, animals as mindless machinery and humans as nothing more than an intricate piece of engineering. It is from this foundation that we learned the traditional view of the universe – that we are solid, separate and bound by the five physical senses. As this thinking progressed, anything that was not physical, tangible or explained by mechanics was deemed to be impossible or imagination. We learned to deny a vital part of ourselves; the intangible sense of Self; the instinctive knowing; the connection with something grander and wiser.
Thankfully, there is a new science emerging and it is not just dissolving all that we know about the universe, it is also urging us to reconnect with the non-physical side of ourselves; the soul or essence that was lost long ago. Put simply, quantum physics is revealing a universe that is not like a machine at all – it is not solid, not static and certainly not predictable! In fact, physicists now understand:
- The very atoms that make up you, your body, your world are not really solid (they are 99% nothing!)
- You are not separate from the world around you (at a quantum level you are constantly interacting with everything and everyone around you)
- Time is not what we think it is (atoms can be in two places at the same time; time can be warped)
- Our solid universe is only a tiny percentage of what is real (we can only see and measure 6% of what makes up the universe – more than 95% of the universe is made of energies and influences beyond our comprehension)
“What does this all mean?” you ask. It means that the side of you that you have been told doesn’t exist – the soul, the psychic connection, the immortal energetic presence – is more probable and more real than the limiting machine-like persona you have been turned into.
It means you have power, wisdom and understandings way beyond the confines of your logical mind. It means that, as our indigenous brothers and sisters tell us, your Self extends far beyond the apparent borders of your body and extends out to include everything and everyone around you.
It means that you are deeper, wiser, more enduring, more magical and more expansive than you have been told to believe.
Understanding this truth is the first step in healing deep, unconscious yearnings and wounds – and the innate sense of isolation, worthlessness, loss and depression that many suffer in the world today. And integrating this intangible side of yourself into your daily life – and trusting the guidance and wisdom that you will discover there – is a vital element in creating a happier, more empowering life.
It is time to realise that you are not a machine. Because science is revealing that you are infinite. You are powerful. You are wise. And there is an entire, eternal universe residing inside of you.
