The basic underlying and uniting force of the universe is a psychic energy field of love and soul consciousness (the Unified Field ) which lies not only beyond time and space but ALSO beneath our deepest fears and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite ~ which we collectively resist at our universal peril: Allen L Roland, PhD
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing, there is a field.
I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase each other doesn’t make any sense.” Rumi
Our innate link to the Unified Field of love and soul consciousness begins in the womb and reveals itself in its principle property ~ the universal propensity to unite.
“If there were no real propensity to unite, even at a prodigiously rudimentary level, indeed in the molecule itself, it would be physically impossible for love to appear higher up in the humanized or human form.” Teilhard de Chardin
Whereas Einstein was concerned with the “without of things”, Teilhard was concerned with the “within if things“. Teilhard used the term “within” to denote the psychic face or consciousness of matter ~ since the beginning of time ~ which reveals itself in its innate urge to unite.
Regarding this universal urge to unite ~ it was Teilhard de Chardin who wrote: “Considered in all its full biological reality, love ~ that is to say, the affinity of being with being is not peculiar to man. It is a general property of all life and as such embraces, in its varieties of degrees, all the forms successfully adopted by organized matter.”
Teilhard defines this innate urge to unite as an energy force in his famous Law Of Complexity – Consciousness. The law states two principles:
- Throughout all time there has been an evolutionary tendency for all matter to unite and become increasingly complex in nature.
- With each increase in material complexity, there is a related rise in the consciousness of matter and an even greater urge to unite.
Teilhard divided this fundamental energy into two distinct components ~ a Tangential energy which linked the element with all others of the same order and a Radial energy which represented the innate urge toward union and greater complexity as well as a leap in consciousness.
It is this Radial energy in matter, this deep urge towards union and completion, which eventually manifests itself as LOVE.
As such, Teilhard’s Radial energy is one in the same with what I call a state of Soul Consciousness ~ The Unified Field ~ A state of love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears ~ and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.
Note ~ If we compare this with Darwin’s evolutionary theory, Darwin’s only initial error was to substitute matter for spirit as the motivating force of the Universe ~ for it becomes increasingly clear, in light of this innate urge to unite, that man is the product of an evolution of love. From the pre-atomic stage in the depths of the primordial sea to his present ‘ humanized ‘ state ~ man is the product of a seemingly endless evolution within a loving plan of plurality, union and a resultant energy transformation into something more complex, more conscious and more loving.
Nowhere is this more evident than in our own creation as human beings!
In the August 1990 issue of Life Magazine, Lennart Nilsson created a sensation with the first photographs of how life begins, from conception through life’s earliest hours and days, his photos are dramatic proof of our innate urge to unite and of Tellhard’s Law of Complexity Consciousness.
Nilsson clearly shows , in his remarkable photographs, a remarkable sequence of events. Shortly after the head of the sperm has entered the ovum, we see two small bubbles filled with chromosomes floating around ~ one from the man and one from the woman. Drawn inexorably toward each other (by the urge to unite) these nuclei begin to unite. The result of this union is a highly complex single nucleus (Blastocyst) that contains the entire biological blueprints for a human being.
There can be no doubt that we, as human beings are the product of an evolution of love and the urge to unite. By the third trimester, we have reached a place of complexity consciousness where we are in a joyful and knowing place of unity and soul consciousness.
We can hear sounds and most definitely feel by the third Trimester. As a twin, I remember the closeness and loving presence of my twin brother while in utero ~ which is now reinforced by the knowing and deep connection of my wife particularly when we are sleeping next to each other.
I distinctly remember as a very young child, since I’m a twin and surrendered during my birth trauma ~ a vague, scary and almost overwhelming prenatal feeling imprint of being part of something so vast and incomprehensible that I felt absolutely miniscule and tiny beyond description. Now I realize, through eyes that have been opened through love and service, that it was evidence of my original fetal or prenatal omniscience ~ a knowledge of events which seem to transcend the sensory and mental capacities of the fetus.
This fetal consciousness has most certainly been validated through the work of Dr William Emerson of Petaluma (also a twin) in his evaluation of the memory and consciousness capacities of the prenate through regressions of infants from age two to four in order to determine whether they
The results of the regressions revealed that most of the children had two of the four criteria of higher consciousness and many had three out of four while in utero ~ and particularly the positive elements of higher consciousness such as ecstasy, joy and/or bliss.
MY FIRST AWARENESS OF UNIFIED FIELD
My whole life has been a journey, a quest, to find a lost little boy within myself who once knew, and longed to share the truths that I am now sharing with you; a 4 year old boy who profoundly experienced at the deepest level within himself, a love and joy that indelibly connected him to everything around him. That experience was my first awareness of a Unified Field of love which I was an integral part of ~ and I fully surrendered to the bliss of being in the Unified Field of love and soul consciousness and never forgot it and will discuss it later. See VT article ~
THE FINAL OPTION / SURRENDERING TO THE UNIFIED FIELD
I have had many personal experiences of the sensory sensation of being in the Unified Field of love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears but this one stands out ~ for it was a matter of life and death and it became the foundation of my belief in this state of consciousness that lies beneath our deepest fears. See VT article ~
PRECOGNITIVE VISION AT 6 YEARS OLD
Just as becoming a Navy Fighter pilot was an important part of my destiny and brought me to the San Francisco Bay area ~ the precognitive vision of the Golden Gate Bridge was a door that was opened to me as a young child and not only let the future in but proved to me that the love for my grandfather not only existed beyond time and space but was also the sole constant of the universe. See VT article ~
THE NEAR AND AFTER DEATH EXPERIENCE IS BEING IN THE UNIFIED FIELD
She was once again that blond haired little girl she longed to be, laughing and running free in that meadow “Allen, I know, Allen, I know”
My after death experience with my Mother when she passed on in 1987 was proof positive that she was now in the Unified Field ~ a state of soul consciousness that exists beyond time and space. See VT article ~
There can be little doubt that we, as human beings on this tiny miniscule planet in this vast unknown universe, are the product of an evolution of love fueled by the urge to unite ~ from single cell to multi-cell ~ and by the third trimester we have reached a place of such complexity consciousness that we are in a joyful and knowing state of soul consciousness within a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness ~ whose principle property is the urge to unite.
Only the individual and collective state of ego consciousness (the need to control and dominate others) stands in the way of the awareness of not only this loving plan in action ~ but also each one of our parts in this loving plan.
Obviously, there is no such thing as an ugly soul but there are many emotionally maimed souls throughout the planet. It takes tremendous energy to maintain our individual as well as collective state of ego consciousness ~ which is why many of my clients seemingly lose at least 10 years of age, as well as regain repressed energy, when they open their closed hearts and begin to extend and accept love from a place of joy and gratitude. All that energy that was being used for ego defense is now available for self-love and healing.
Nowhere is that more apparent than in my work with combat veterans with PTSD ~ which I re-label PTHD (Post Traumatic Heart Disorder) ~ for one of the most common PTSD symptoms is a closed heart and the inability to extend or receive love. Usually this is because of deep ongoing feelings of shame and guilt or feelings of unworthiness which usually originated during early childhood trauma or birth separation.
In eight three hour sessions over eight weeks these veterans initially completed and shared their life charts (which graphically show their life as a quest to love and be loved); take full accountability for the decisions they have made in their life; meet the lost child within themselves (through a guided visualization); thank the people who have been there for them throughout their life and finally claim the most important gift they have always innately desired ~ themselves, free from fear, unworthiness and resentment as they emerge from their cocoon of ego consciousness.
In all my heart centered consultations, the gift I give my clients is the knowing joy and bliss of being in service from a place of soul consciousness and knowingly being in the Unified Field.
This has been my universal calling ~ I have completely surrendered to it and feel totally in sync with it.
As such, I initially connect with the lost child within them, who is often hiding beneath a mantle of fear and unworthiness, make a heart connection with them through the power of gratefulness and then, through a visualization, they meet the child and they begin to listen and respond to their own heart centered direction from a place of celebration and service.
I literally see the light go on in their dark world and through their homework, they begin to not only see through different eyes but find their long silenced voice .
As children , we all knew, or briefly glimpsed, this state of soul consciousness ~ the Unified Field .
As I mentioned earlier ~ my whole life has been a journey, a quest, to find an emotionally lost little boy within myself who once knew and profoundly felt this inner truth ~ that the bliss and joy deepest within himself was indelibly connected to all of nature ~ and longed to share it , as I am now sharing it with you.
I vividly remember that childhood moment. It was a typical lovely, warm and sultry New England summer day in Newtonville, Massachusetts.
I was four years old and playing alone in my room. I was living with my grandfather, whom I deeply loved and who I knew deeply loved me and my twin brother, Bobby.
I never knew my father, who had separated from my mother before I was born. My mother was exceptionally beautiful, spoiled and emotionally unavailable but my grandfather’s black maid , Delia touched my heart with her gospel songs and loving heart ~ I knew I was loved and that I was special. At times, I could feel an incredible love within me leap from my heart towards my beloved grandfather. He was such a blessing in my life and he truly moved me unconditionally.
That day in my room, I suddenly heard my favorite song on the radio ~ It was Gene Autrey’s ” I’m Back in the Saddle Again ” ~ My inner joy was too great to contain and I felt an incredible urge to share it with the world. So I turned the radio up as loud as possible and stood on my tiptoes and opened the window, As I leaned out into that gorgeous summer day ~ I felt an overwhelming joy which seemed to literally lift me out of myself .
For suddenly I knew and saw something clearly ~ it was a knowing and seeing from deepest within myself ~ a feeling of incredible joy and oneness with all and I completely surrendered to it. For an ecstatic few moments I knew I was not alone ~ I knew that the awesome feeling of joy that seemed to lift me out of myself was connected to all of nature and I was part of it!
Now I know that I was obviously in a state of soul consciousness or the Unified Field
The memory of that childhood feeling ~ the deep sense of inner joy and knowing ~ was soon to become completely unavailable to me.
For over 30 years, It was buried under a mantle of psychic pain, aloneness and despair that I deeply felt at the age of six years old when I was suddenly taken away from grandfather and Delia. That was when my heart closed and I stopped growing emotionally ~ it hurt too deeply to feel deeply ~ my sisters vividly remember me crying out as we left my grandfather’s home “Delia, Delia ~ do you love me?”
Thirty years later I finally fully opened my heart but only after many years of searching for something I had seemingly lost as well as many attempts to prove myself ~ all in a vain attempt to fill the black hole of psychic pain within me .
Of course, love was “out there to be found” versus inside to be found and freed . And when I eventually found it and lost it ~ I finally faced the repressed anger, despair and aloneness that I had been running away from my whole life.
It was only then ~ when I took full accountability for my deep pain and stopped denying love from a place of gratitude ~ totally surrendering to the deep psychic pain within me ~ that the joyful memory of that special summer day at four years old bubbled to the surface of my consciousness as a wonderful reminder that deepest within me, beneath my deep pain and victim issues, was love, joy and a profound state of soul consciousness.
Thus it would appear that the pain of not being loved for oneself or being seemingly separated from love is of such deep psychic proportions that death would occur unless we consciously separate from our feelings and our intuitive right brain connection to soul consciousness ~ in order to survive.
As such, death or the idea of death, is an illusion measured by the limits of our consciousness.
Think of the ego as a protective cocoon that is eventually meant to be shed. The Unified Field can thus be visualized as a grid of great luminosity joining all living beings within its energy field of love.
The words of Longfellow would seem appropriate in describing this all-encompassing field or grid: “The thread of all sustaining beauty that runs through all and doth all unite.”
It would also seem logical at this point that ego consciousness (ego-defense, manipulation, isolation and self-protection) became more important for survival than soul consciousness (sensitivity, receptivity, altruism and our deepest need to love one another) for it’s a choice for survival..
To the prenate, it’s also a no choice situation ~ all they see is a dark tunnel of never ending pain ,aloneness and despair. Yes, it is the same dark tunnel of the near-death experiencer and apparent death from which the ego is born and I am living proof that beneath that point of despair within ourselves ~ we reach a point of singularity, where all notions of time and space break down and we became one with the Unified Field and our innate state of love, joy and soul consciousness.
This would seem to explain why people who have had near-death experiences not only do not fear the unknown or death but have new values regarding love and being in service.
Death may be viewed as the curtain between the existence we are conscious of and one that is hidden from us until we raise the curtain ~ Elizabeth-Kubler Ross
But I would add and have clearly demonstrated in my work and personal experiences within this field of universal Love ~ that Birth may also be viewed as a curtain between an existence we are conscious of and one that is hidden from us until we escape the ego and it’s limited consciousness, through love and gratefulness, and enter a state of soul consciousness ( the Unified Field ) by surrendering to love and claiming our part in a universal loving plan as well as its universal urge to unite.
We shall not cease from exploration
And at the end of all our exploring
We will arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
