“The first principle of quantum mechanics is that you must not fool yourself and you are the easiest person to fool.”—Richard Feynman
Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman was famous for saying “nobody understands quantum mechanics.”
So I won’t pretend that I do. But I do know that in the quantum field there are a gazillion superpositions. And that when we decide one of them is absolute fact (say, “the world is falling apart” or “life is really hard”), we make that superposition into a material reality. Our observing it makes it real, makes it solid.
It’s like choosing the three of clubs from a deck of cards and then forgetting there are 51 other cards in the deck. Only in the quantum world, there is an infinite number of cards–what I call the FP or the field of infinite potentiality.
When we worry about one particular superposition, we add energy to it. We solidify it into the material realm. When we call our friends to complain, when we watch the news with our mouths agape, we literally add weight to a hand of playing cards that needs to be discarded.
Worse, we completely forget there are so many other options, so many other potential realities.
You can play this particular hand for your entire lifetime. Most people will. Or you can throw it back in the deck and either draw a new hand or, better yet, create a hand no one has even thought up yet.
My new book that comes out Tuesday is all about throwing in the old hand, about creating a whole new world. One of the options, of course, is to pick a different hand from the existing 52 cards. And that’s a noble beginning.
As for me, I plan to start from scratch and create a different hand, a more beautiful and generous hand.
All of us have the power to do just that. We can take the bleeding and dying superposition that we’re currently seeing on the news, and throw it back in the deck.
We can choose a different vision, a different story, a different deck of cards.
It’s up to us, the observer, the chooser of the superposition.
P.S. I’ll be talking about the new book and answering questions during my debut FB Live next Tuesday. It’s on the Hay House FB page. I changed it, thanks to you and the solar eclipse which passes right over my head. It’s at 9 a.m. PST, 11 CST and noon EST. Hope to see you there.
Have a extraordinarily epic weekend.
