What Is Energy and What Role Do We Play Within It?

Dear ATCA Open & Philanthropia Friends

Albert Einstein's famous equation E=mc2 shows us that everything is made up of energy. Science demonstrates that energy is the building block of all matter and exchanges with everything else at all times in a most complex dynamic. Everything in this universe is ultimately made up of that same energy. It is just present in different forms and different shapes. The energy that composes our bodies is indeed the same one that composes the building materials of our homes and the animals and the trees found outside. It is all just the same!
Energy Entanglement and Exchange
The Grand Narrative
Energy is constantly flowing and changing form all the time. It is in a dynamic state of flux. This is a very simple explanation of a rather complex system! So are we then all part of that "One Energy"? And can this be dated back to the beginning of this universe which began the "Grand Narrative"? Was all matter entangled in a dynamic dance of energy at the time of that primordial initial vibration? Is this indeed where we originally ascended from? Is our ultimate reality multi-dimensional, infinite and timeless?
The Ultimate Mystery
Max Planck, considered to be the founder of quantum theory and one of the most important physicists of the twentieth century, did extensive research into the field of energy and he is the father of the expression called the "Planck Scale". The Planck scale corresponds to incredibly small distances or equivalently, incredibly large energies, and some scientists believe that at this very low level we find vibrations and invisible connections in everything. It has been shown to be unimaginably vibrational and energetic at the atomic level. Recent scientific advances including those at the European Centre for Nuclear Research or CERN suggest that the universal energy which transforms into matter constitutes the underlying fabric of the universe.
There is no separation between things, no empty space, as everything appears to be alive, ie, conscious, and whole. In its timeless state, the universe is constantly evolving. There is constant interconnectedness. Science is trying to understand what is really going on at the "Planck Scale" level and some suggest that this invisible connection is consciousness, a universal consciousness which we are all part of. Science wants to solve this mystery and understand it all, but according to Max Planck this may not be entirely possible: "Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are... part of that mystery that we are trying to solve."
Ocean of Energy
If all of our bodies are energy and everything around us is energy are we then connected with each other and everything around us? If this is the case, we are entangled and everything we do -- how we behave and how we think and feel -- will be vibrating into this field of energy, this so-called Ocean of Energy. Hence it is affecting everyone in it -- either directly or indirectly. A shift in one part of that massive field of energy ripples on and causes shifts in the parts next to it and they cause shifts in the parts next to them and that ripple continues to cascade. Given that we are part of that universe, the ripple comes back to us and gives us back a dose of experience similar to that which we originally emitted. If we cause a change in the energy field around and in us, it ripples, touching everything. And everything of course ripples back in reaction, sending it back to us, manifold.
Cause and Effect
If we take this one step further it would mean that the way you and I think and feel can change the world for better or worse. Our vibrating, positive energy can influence those around us and vice-versa. This is the essence of the law of "Cause and Effect." It is essentially like a boomerang. What we send out comes back to us with a strengthened force.
If we are sending out positive and good vibrations, reflecting our true emotions and feelings, the "boomerang" is likely to come back to us with positive events and positive synchronicities or "coincidences." The same goes for emotions and thoughts of anger and hatred. The "boomerang" we emitted will catch up with us sooner or later and give us a positive or negative experience and an alteration of our perceived reality dependent on our original interaction.
Shaping of Destiny
What Mahatma Gandhi said rings true from an "Ocean of Energy" cascading perspective:
1. Watch your thoughts, they become words;
2. Watch your words, they become actions;
3. Watch your actions, they become habits;
4. Watch your habits, they become your character; and
5. Watch your character, it becomes your destiny.
Positive or Negative Effects
Every thought or action has an effect or consequence. The nature of that effect depends upon the nature of the cause. If the cause is "positive", the effect is more likely to be "positive". If the cause comes from negative thoughts, the result is more likely to be negative in its impact.
Friends, Family and Community
The Law of Cause and Effect states: "For every action there is equal and opposite reaction" which is also Newton's third law. Our thoughts, our words and the way we behave is a cause that sets off a wave of energy throughout the universe. As part of this sea of energy we must realise that the way we think and feel is causing a ripple in this "Ocean of Energy" in the universe and it affects everything around us. Our family, friends, people in our local community, people in our country and everyone in the WORLD and within the universe is affected.
The most potent form of energy is thought. Thought-waves are cosmic waves that penetrate all time and space. Hence what we think has a great impact on everything in this universe. So just by committing to think and to feel in a positive way will make a shift in the universe and our world will benefit. If everyone on Earth starts to think, behave and feel positively we will make our world a place of peace. With our consciousness we are all part of that universal consciousness in one universal mind. Global consciousness impacts on our world and we are able to change it for the better if we just commit to it! Peace is a by-product of the recognition of our interconnectivity at all times and in all places. Just as soon as individuals and nations recognise that we are living in a totally interconnected world and universe, the incentive for conflict driven by selfish vested interests begins to decline. There is simply too much to lose in an interconnected world in the event of war. The balance similar to the one which existed during the Cold War between the two Super Powers, who feared Mutual Assured Destruction and hence never went to all out war, can be re-manifest in the multi-polar world upon the realisation of our total interconnectivity and interdependence.
