The Future of God (A Conversation between Deepak Chopra, M.D. and Kyra Phillips, CNN)
Deepak Chopra introduces the concept of cosmic consciousness as a state of awareness that encompasses the entirety of all that has existed and will exist. This state of consciousness identifies our core individuality with the universality of all existence, or God.
So, yes the akashic field is the immeasurable potential of all that was, all that is, and all that will be. It’s cosmic consciousness and from there comes everything that has ever existed, everything that exists now, and everything that could possibly exist in a never-ending horizon of the future. Endless. Okay? It’s our source and we have access to it. Now science will not go that far they call it the quantum vacuum. They say where’s this quantum vacuum in space and time. No it’s not it. It’s from where space-time comes. It’s another word for God and really that is the future of God. Both a model that science can accept and an experience that you can have spiritually. If you can do both that will be the future of God. And there a lot of people by the way that have that awakening now. We are collaborating with scientists looking at these people and they have the following things happening to them.
First of all they’re very clear perception. Very clear. They see colors more vivid. Sounds are more acute. Tastes and smells. Reality has a vibrancy to it. They can see beyond the physical into the subtle. They can see beyond that into the formless void and they can experience themselves in those three domains. So that’s happening to people. Secondly they are not bamboozled by melodramatic emotions because they see that emotion is just a form that consciousness takes and then it goes. They are able to witness their emotions and they are beyond reactivity. Thirdly they have no fear of death because they see death and birth as parentheses, punctuation points in the pattern of the behavior formless void. Fourthly, they have more creativity, their memories are sharper. They are not burdened by memory, they are not victimized by memory.
So the phrase, “I use memory, but I don’t allow memories to use me.” Even these memories are a pattern of behavior. You can find validation for this if you look at Ian Stevenson’s work at the University of West Virginia. Documentation of thousands of cases of what they call reincarnation, other lifetimes. Documented cases. You can find all kinds of evidence of the paranormal, extra-sensory experience, which I call dormant non-local potentials. Dean Rader, thousands of people in the world of science are investigating this and people are doing psychological tests on people that are having what they call awakening.
