Many great philosophers have tapped into spirituality and have contributed great knowledge from Plato to Einstein.
I am not talking figuratively you are actually 'The One'. Your realization of this is a new paradigm, and by doing so you bring about the shift. It is the difference between finite and infinite, and the 'origin' of paradox is that everything in physical reality is both. But thought (some call it The Word) precedes and that consciousness is who you truly are. This sounds like philosophy and in part it is, but it is also part science, and part religion, etc. If true all the puzzle pieces must fit together, because it's all you. To see anything it must be your perspective, so perspective must be the primary building block of the fractal called life. That being the first key and 'the master key' at that. Philosophy, science, and religion are Human rationalizations of who we are, with truth (Infinitely applicable for all) and falsehoods (for finite gain) within them, thereby only at the truth could they merge.
Let’s pick up the pieces of science and see if there is a way they fit. The realization by humanity that the universe is fractal was heaven sent. That means everything has a simple foundational idea repeating throughout the whole, when focused on without bias all the supporting ideas gather around. The simplest idea that repeats through all of the pieces of science, is that science had always been the observation of finite things and ideas. Religion had always controlled what one can think (or that you cannot think about what) the Infinite is. Physics is the math of finite ideas, which was all we saw in science until what is called Quantum Physics appeared. Infinite ideas do not fit in a physics box. Ideas such as the Bose/Einstein effect, as approaching absolute zero all atomic structure breaks down and become everything, and string theory are both showing we are all at the core connected as one. That infinite possibilities exist. That every possibility that ever has or ever will exist, exists now at their specific vibratory time/space. That time/space are one thing and are vibratory locations.
Now science says both physics and Quantum Physics exist which they do, but it is wrong to say one exists at the sub-atomic level and the other works on big stuff like you and me, because the foundation repeats throughout the whole. They both work everywhere, it is the duality of paradox that everything in physical reality is both. You are both finite and infinite, but which is your true nature? The natural laws of physics begin with, 'these equations are true and correct when dealing with an isolated system', which is a finite system that does not interact with any other system. This is because if the systems interact the equations must vary. So the big problem I see up front with physics, is that isolated systems do not exist. The foundation of its natural laws are not found anywhere in Nature. This makes it impossible that that could be your nature. Because we have not been thinking in infinite terms, Infinity seems inapplicable in life, but the application in science works very well.
I'm writing this down to focus my perspective on the simplicity of it all. Not only do all the pieces fit, but they all have the picture (consciousness) of the whole puzzle within each piece, this is the definition of omnipresence. Doubt is fighting to not be the one, and is the foundation of all struggle. Realizing that 'You Are The One' is effortless because it is who you are. Realizing you are infinite and what that means is the whole foundation, all the supporting ideas gather around. You're the one and only have one block to play with, and it's a reflection of you. Isn't it amazing the infinite diversity Infinity can do with that block. Even some blocks that aren't aware of from where they come.
A few decades ago in a Quantum Physics experiment, Infinity blew the lid off, in what I call the double slot dilemma. At that time/space a photon was the smallest particle we could manipulate, and we could generate and shoot them from what I'll call a photon gun. A wall with a surface that registered photon hits was placed before the photon gun, with another wall to block photons placed between the two. With the photon gun turned on the center wall blocked all the photons, no hits registering on the back wall. With a slot cut in the center wall, a line of hits appeared on the back wall where the photons passed through the slot. But when two slots were cut in the center wall, the photons stopped acting like particles and a wave pattern formed on the back wall. Why did we not get two lines of hits, as was expected? It was thought maybe interference between photons was causing the formation of the wave pattern. But when the gun was slowed so that only one photon at a time was hitting the slotted wall, the wave pattern remained on the back wall. So an imaging system, that made four hundred thousand images per second, was synchronized with the photon gun and placed at the slotted wall. Now we would surely see the answer, but we ended up with a much bigger question. Perhaps the question that leads to all the answers. With the photon gun and imaging system synchronized and running the wave pattern went away, and on the back wall appeared the two lines of hits of a particle pattern! Like a light switch on the wall, imaging system on particle pattern, imaging system off wave pattern.
You may think that the question is, how did the imaging system have such a profound effect? But the real question, is what is consciousness?! Science does not have this answer, but ever since this experiment it has had to step over this question. But one question this experiment absolutely answered, was that our close focus of observation changes the results of this experiment, and can be reproduced at any time/space that we know of with the proper equipment. Since this extraordinary event science has come full circle, not only do we now know that observation changes the results of all experiments, we also know that the effect of observation cannot be removed.
Is life very very complicated as all sciences (except Quantum Physics) imply, or could all the answers be too simple for us. I believe the answer to the double slot dilemma is. I am very thankful that I am simple minded enough to have seen it, as it has profoundly changed my life ever after. First, is that observation is an act of consciousness. Scientifically you can say in fact observation changes results, more on point is to say that an act of consciousness changes results. Prior to Quantum Physics we only saw finite portions of existence, so we did everything we could think of to eliminate the observer's effect. Instead of realizing the infinite potential of control and amplification of the observer's effect! What was it about the close observation of consciousness that changed the results, from a wave field to a particle pattern? If I could make it more complicated most would all probably get it, but this simple truth eludes most. Is it the Perspective of consciousness that causes the observer’s effect? It is the perspective of every consciousness that has ever or will ever see the photon gun turned on at the two slotted wall for the first time, is that we will see two lines of hits on the back wall. Did the close focus of this perspective cause the wave pattern to form its specific (vibratory time/space) particle pattern?! This is the only simplicity standing here before you, you can ‘try’ to conjure up some other complicated answer, which science has done and failed.
You can say you believe in this or that, but your Perspective is your belief system in action. It is a possibility that every single thing in every physical reality is formed from the one wave field by perspectives of consciousness. If this is so, and infinite possibilities are, then you taking control and changing a perspective is going to change your reality.
Science, before Quantum Physics and sadly mostly after, is the study of finite ideas with the quest of finding how they all work. Our search for the ‘origin’ of life, is to find and identify the smallest finite point of existence. Ignoring the fact, that a finite point by definition, doesn’t tell us anything about Infinity. This is 180 degrees as far as you can go in the opposite direction, also by definition Infinity is without an origin. But I have no doubt science will continue to find somethings. We cannot even ask what is the role of consciousness, when the goal is to find an origin of consciousness in some finite part and/or chemistry within bodies. As all possibilities exist, again I have no doubt this perspective creates a something. But if Quantum Physics even exists, which is a proven fact with many working answers in progress, then the secret is actually out. Existence is Infinite in Nature, infinitely small, infinitely large, infinite in all directions and ways. It is just common sense that you must believe in what you want, to receive it. It makes just as much common sense that there must be desire and intention for anything to exist. Desire and intention are perspective components of consciousness, and consciousness has been the realm of religion. As long as science stayed with the finite and religion had the infinite controlled, well... we may have a merge point here.
Looking at the idea of a big bang, whether you believe the finite idea that it was the beginning of all things, or an infinite one which is that it is the beginning of a cycle, there had to be desire and intention for it to happen. Either way that consciousness existed prior to, and everything that has happen since must also be contained within that one consciousness. A draw back to the question of how long had consciousness existed prior to existence, is that time/space did not exist prior to. But I can tell you from my perspective you are not the ego structured body you are walking around in, you are the consciousness that creates it, by perspectives. Otherwise everyone who has had a near death experience of leaving there body behind is a liar, and this would thereby be the one possibility that infinite possibilities does not contain. It is not easy to realize infinite possibilities, which means that everything you can imagine and more is true. The etheric is infinite and multi-dimensional, the finite perspective is it's just my imagination. It is a possibility that when we go inside and look at our consciousness, we are looking at our Source the one and only omnipresent consciousness of infinite possibilities. The merging of science and religion is now possible because Quantum Physics has made science look at what is consciousness itself.
Knowing you’re infinite is taking control of all the fractal blocks and creates the perspective of knowing, and perspectives create realities. Just this contemplation well find truth and a new paradigm, seeing life through these new eyes answers many things that prior to left us baffled. If we are all of the same one Consciousness, of which we are an infinite number, then all our perspectives together reflect back to that omnipresence all the ways that can be. The we are all connected fact, is proven Quantum Physics. Which all then leads to this, when you open your eyes all the finite individual things you see, are all Perspective projections of the same one Consciousness that is the only one you can be. Making it just good common sense that what you put out you’re going to get back, everything is done to self. So if you see this possibility and start continuously asking your consciousness, what are my Perspectives about things, and are these Perspectives I prefer, you will find infinite choice. There is the realization here that mysteries in life are gone (no more secrets), there is wonder but no unanswerable questions. And if some days you can't seem to find Perspectives that you like, find something and love it, because it's all you and that's what it's for.
Let’s remove the crazy notion that you are finite and came from nothing. Let’s look at
the answers that come from the idea that Perspectives create realities. Sports psychology is the 'art' of fine tuning athlete's Perspectives, which works very well and is a growing field. This answers questions about, 'The Placebo Effect'. One study I saw was one hundred patients received sugar pills and were told they were receiving an experimental new drug, that had shown excellent results dealing with the illness they had. Forty patients believed they were receiving a good drug and got well, showing the life changing power of Perspective. Sadly, they were then told their cure was fake, and they all degenerated just by a change of Perspective. This is terrible health care, but take a good look at this glimpse of how good it can be, by realizing the power your Perspective has. Proof that if someone takes control of your Perspective and changes it, you are going to see a new and completely different reality, is called hypnotism. I saw a public exhibition when not only did a father not see his daughter standing before him, but read the time off an audience members watch placed behind her, reading the time to the second right through his daughter’s body! That is just the tip of the iceberg. Nothing is the only thing not created by Perspectives, and the only thing that truly does not exist. Too simple and doesn't sound scientific, will it is and when this shift hits the mass consciousness, we'll ask how did we ever miss it. As for science, not only must we rethink every experiment knowing observation effected the results, we must clearly ask what was our Perspectives going in. We do not need more experiments to find the definitive finite point of it all, all points of existence together are the point.
The major religion of this land has the only one I know of, that stopped the counting of time and started it over again, by his life. His followers for three hundred plus years were called gnostic (to know), and he said go inside to find me. Every religion that believes in one omnipresent god, all agree on only two things. God is infinite, and created all things. Are you created in the image of god? If so, these are the only two things we all agree is your image (imagination). A foundation of all deities is they are somewhere outside of you in the illusion, when you see the omnipresence within, you see it everywhere ‘outside’ of you. God is infinite, and Quantum Physics is the scientific study of what Infinity is.
You are Infinity, but no matter how many possibilities you are projecting into physical (physics) reality, it is a finite number. Each frame you add more and let some go, always a finite number and every one of them is valid. So everyone you have ever argued with to make your point, has been as right as you from their perspective. So instead of them being someone else who is wrong, when you realize they are the same one consciousness as you and you see something you believe they could use, you have the love and compassion that makes it easy to share the thought. Within you is the consciousness of an infinite number, called your imagination. You do not make things up in your imagination, you go there every time you have a question. That is your ego talking to your true self, that's called being self- aware. Trapping you in finite thought, is your perspective thinking that it is you asking the questions. It's like a ventriloquist throwing his voice, as your imagination is the consciousness of you. The finite number of possibilities within the projection of a body, all together as one self-aware being is your ego, you are infinitely more. The only thing stopping any picture of imagination from creating, is doubt by your ego. Your imagination is inspiration, doubt is limitation, both can be your creations. You either know or you don't know, you are the creator either way. The pictures you dream with your imagination, are the real things. Physical realities are finite holographic representations, based in inspiration or doubt. A mechanical hologram is an illusion, but what it is projected off of, has to be the real thing. You do not want to know all things, when you don't need them. But if you listen to your
heart, you will always know what you need to know when you need to know it. Never have you learned from physical reality, anything not already within you. No matter what you have ever heard in your life time, you have gone to your imagination and bounced it off the picture there. Then you say I can see that, or that's not who I am. Your ego works perfectly when it knows Infinity is it's Source. Infinity (imagination) knows everything is a valid choice, and it knows lies when it sees them. When this tandem is synchronized your higher true self walks in, making perspectives out of possibilities your ego has no idea it can do. A synchronized ego only makes perspective choices that ring like a bell from the heart.
Every single physical thing contains a finite set of possibilities, and every single physical possibility is continuously contained within the consciousness that thought and through desire creates all that is, from the bang all the way through multi-dimensional realities. How do I know, because that is the only one I can be, whether I doubt it or not. There is only one omnipresence! Enlightenment is knowing you are the omnipresence of infinity. You may think something has to have respiration of oxygen or carbon dioxide to be 'alive'. Although rocks are crystals, and crystals receive, store, and send information, and they grow. Sounds like characteristics of life to me. So to love a rock receives a return.
Science has found that reality is not continuous. This idea gathers supporting possibilities that, it's a motion picture of holographic frames, projected through quarks, which oscillate at over a hundred thousand revolutions (frames) per second. There is a quark at the center of every atomic structure, its mathematical equation is two, three equilateral sided tetrahedral pyramids base to base, which could be a black and white hole that facilitates the projection, and return of each frame. This spin increases by the realization of this new paradigm, which grows love to and from all things. Compassion is the foundational key of inner growth. A possibility is the biblical quote means, when the oscillations reach a hundred and forty four thousand frames per second we well be risen up to a higher dimension, let’s call it number four. But the dimension we expand into from here is one, two, three, and four. Possibly we are projecting our perspectives through all of the quarks within our five senses, indicated by science finding we are each processing four hundred billion plus bits of information per second, and two may see the same event completely different.
If a quark is the smallest point of this reality, and the largest point of a 'smaller' one, you can have a particle accelerator the size of the galaxy and you'll need a bigger one. We will forever be finding ‘smaller’ finite points, as every finite thing is a reflection of Infinity which has always existed. The paradox of duality is within each piece is the whole, just like a hologram. But the finite portion is an illusion, or a reflection of a specific portion.
It is possible our infinite souls agree to oscillate frames that are very similar back to back, so we can easily interact with all the facets of each other. When we all realize we are the same one, it well be easy to all agree to change the pictures to ones that are in balance, harmoniously. Future and past are relative ideas that support the present. Memories are reasons we stand for, but change only happen from now. Now is the only place you'll ever be, the center point of creation. Most think we need linear time and that the future and past exist, but thinking it will take a long time for what you are wanting to happen, is your creation of that time and you will receive holographic representations of exactly those pictures. Infinite possibilities means you can have anything any time, and doubt this is you, is also one of infinite possibilities. This is why Quantum Physics can seem to not work on big stuff. So I set triggers, when I realized dis-ease is caused by ego not being in the present. If I have a perspective that's angry I've caught my individual in the past, and if anxious we are in the future, this returns the ego to now, the place of peace and in the flow so to speak. Infinite possibilities, also means there is always a solution!
There is one experiment we need, and we all want it. It is not one that we pretend to stand back not interacting in it. Observation changes results, that means never has nor ever will there be an experiment where we are separate, and thereby see the truth. We do the experiment knowing what the results well be, we focus our Perspective on it and move forward with desire and resolve. We do all want the same things, knowing we are the same one. The love of others, food, shelter, etc. etc., and the one that we all are has no boundaries. The experiment is, can we all have everything we want all the time (now).
The love of money is the root of all evil. If so, then without money evil is gone. How could this be possible? People are not greedy by nature, but money is greedy by intent. The idea is work, beg, borrow, or steal for finite gain and keep it away from everyone else. This is so out of balance, you could think you want more than others have, even if you already have abundance. If what you put out is what you get, what do you get when all you do is take. Maybe if you get way to much you may gift some, but you'll have to find a victim. Not that that is hard to find, in our victim full money world. What the market will bear is what every commodity will find, and most find the cupboard is what's bare. There will always be a winner of the money game, and the result has always been a dictatorship, from kings and queens to the land of the free. So how do we fill everybody's lives with everything wanted? This is so far from the time/space we live, that it's hard to see the truth. We have the resources and people power to provide all the people, all they want, all the time. We are accustom, to it being difficult to provide all our needs, so this well seem too simple to be the complete transformation that it is. But it allows everyone to do what's best for all, all the time. What is the physical value of any possession you have? Any product is worth the time it takes people to make it, nothing more nothing less! So that's its price tag.
Everybody's competition is to create the finest products and services in the least amount of time, which makes all things cost less for everyone. Most are all wired up with electronics because people have nowhere to go enjoy each other without cost, so it seems we should buy happiness. Mostly, comedy is laughing at characters demonstrating a lack of ethics and integrity, and we eat up the tragedy and conflict of drama because that's the condition of our time/space, so it seems real. Can you imagine having things to do that you truly enjoy every day. Doing what's best for all, with everybody living this same inspiration. I guarantee it would be the opposite of dis-ease.
This could begin overnight, because unless what you’re doing does not provide something wanted, everybody would stay doing their 'jobs', but your pay would be a record of the time you put in. Automation could produce many commodities at almost no cost. With computers and robots, a car could probable be produced for an hour of actual people time per unit. We would also use ways that already exist, to run transportation for free with the least amount of environmental impact. Schools would become math, reading, writing, and central locations for gathering data on what the people's needs are for that local. Which would then, be coordinated out to production locations. Do not 'try' to think of this as being like any other system, because this system has nothing like it in recorded history. But any draw back you might think of is easy to fix, because that's what happens when that is the intention of all. Let’s look at a couple examples. Why would a man do things that benefit many, when others do very simple things and get the same hour of time (pay)? For the same reason that when you can get all of your needs for only two hours of input a week, you will still go every day to a place that you get to do what's best for all. It's fun to accomplish things in life, especially when you have a team. Why would you then do the things that people don't like to do, but need doing? Well, first we would automate as many as possible, then youth would have to do (X) amount of hours before graduating to doing things that are more respected. All commodities in raw form would belong to everyone. Their only cost is the time it takes to assemble and distribute them, so we would use the ways that already exist...
You may see the inspiration of this, or you may be filled with doubt, both are valid perspectives, all the supporting ideas will gather around. Infinite possibilities, makes the question not whether this is right or wrong, it is do you have perspectives that you prefer. We stand on the threshold of the dream, a 'new' paradigm, by realizing it’s always been this way. Everyone is clairvoyant, some don't realize it because they don't want others to know what they are thinking. And, telepathy is not reading someone’s thoughts, it is sharing thoughts. May this be as simple as it is Infinitely applicable for all. One Love and You Are The One!

There is not a solar system in the universe that is Spiritual. No orbiting body that is Christian. No shooting star a Buddhist. Never in the history of the world has an apple ever fallen from a tree an atheist. The Death of Spirituality is the death of the finger pointing to the moon and the birth of the moon. For we no longer need to point to it. We have landed on it.
The Spiritual Singularity is the moment that the territory becomes the map. The moment that magic becomes, once and for all, simply undiscovered science. When faith is merely the patience required for successful practice and karma is simply blow back, its operationalization, merely an individuals most developed self-preservation instinct. It is the moment that enlightenment becomes your Free Will Index, and God is re-born as the global collective conscience.
As Spirituality dies for you personally it will represent the moment that you no longer pray or meditate because you think to do so is good, just as much as you don’t urinate or defecate because you believe that you should. Like urination and defecation, prayer and meditation, will have simply become a more subtle form of purification. We will not practice them for the sake of personal development as much as finding food and shelter for our family is an unquestioned requirement. No longer mysticism but the mere actions of a phenomenologically sophisticated logician. You will not surrender to Spirit because you honor it, as much as the planets circle the sun because they worship it. We will simply do so because it is in harmony with the cosmic.
No, Spirituality is not dying, it is simply shedding its skin.

In my opionion, it is a humble and honest confession that Andrew Cohen, self proclaimed spiritual teacher, looks at his own ego. It seems that Andrew could have continued to be the guru for thousands like he has been for the two decades, but perhaps his desire for true awakening is pushing him forward...- AS founder of NewRealities
From Andrew Cohen's recent Blog:
I’m fifty-seven years old and currently find myself facing the biggest challenge of my life. I’ve been a teacher of spiritual enlightenment for twenty-seven years. Enlightenment has always been and always will be about transcending the ego. Over the last several years, some of my closest students have tried to make it apparent to me that in spite of the depth of my awakening, my ego is still alive and well.
I’ve understood this simple truth—that we all have egos no matter how enlightened we may be—and even taught it to thousands of people all over the world throughout my career. But when I was being asked to face my own ego by those who were nearest and dearest to me, I resisted. And I often made their lives difficult as a result.
I’m aware that many of my students over the years have also been affected by my lack of awareness of this part of myself. And for those of you who are reading this, I apologize. As time passes I intend to reach out and engage in a process of dialogue with those of you who would like to.
In light of all this, for the sake of my own integrity as a spiritual teacher and as a human being, I’ve decided that I need to take some time off so I can make the effort to develop in many of the ways that I’ve asked other people to. Starting this fall, once I’ve fulfilled some prior commitments, I’m going to embark upon a sabbatical for an extended period of time. During this hiatus, I will be stepping down from the leadership of my organization, I won’t be publishing anything here on my blog, and will not be doing any public teaching. My intention is to become a better teacher, and more importantly, a better man.
One of the most beautiful fruits of my work over the years has been the international network of people who have studied, collaborated, and trained with me for so long. They are all examples of Evolutionary Enlightenment in their own right, and I couldn’t imagine a greater community of people to carry forward this movement. I’m looking forward to working with them in a very different way in the future.

We don't need external rules - we are perfectly capable of recognising
the for and the against. Radical? Check it out.
We know about what is happening with Catholic Priests don't we.
Will it seems it is happening in all religions and so-called spiritual
(Incidentally, St. Peter is supposed to be the the founder of Christianity
because he was the first to speak to Jesus after the resurrection -
yet we read in the bible that Mary was the first!
And still fights about how much women are allowed to participate!)
Those of us who think a little more about life have come to see the
ridiculousness of religion, yet not so many seem to be recognising
that the same thing is happening in the spiritual communities as well.
Reports from Tibet tell of the monks having sex with the younger interns,
but the situation is deeper seated than that.
The texts of most Buddhist sects have a definite attitude about women.
Check it out - many Buddhist monks - even even the *Higher Order Ones*
(maybe especially these) if they do talk to a woman often they do not look
them in the eyes while doing so. How come?
Suggestion: to a monk who is attempting to go beyond *the world*
sex is the most powerful and persistent energy. Sex is extrinsic to life -
the basis of life, and it is very, very strong. So avoiding it is pretty
well impossible. Looking at a woman brings up in the monk all the things he is supposed
to be going beyond (Translate that as - suppress.)
So here we have devoted spiritual men having to avoid - half the population
of the planet - 3.5 billion of the most powerful beings here!
Isn't it time we woke up to ourselves - automatically accepting what we are
being told - about everything? - including what is being written here?
Time to take responsibility for ourselves?
Trouble is, responsibility takes a lot of energy - in each moment.
