We all dwell in possibility…

Quantum theory is confirming what yogis intuited 5000 years ago, that we are all participants (whether we know it or not) inside an unlimited flowing field of creative potential.
On the 10th June 2022 I was delighted to present a paper at this year’s European Mentering and Coaching Council Global Conference.
The conference theme was ‘United in Harmony’ and my talk explored the beanddo concept of Modern Meditation based Conscious Action. According to physicist and long-term collaborator with Krishnamurti, David Bohm, thought that we are already in harmony with what he called, a field of, ‘Undivided Wholeness in Flowing Movement’. This is the result of a unified ground state out of which the entire universe emerges.
We know through Modern Meditation based techniques we can choose to ‘switch on’ our attention and be a conscious creative collaborator with this field and thus with others and the world. Or we can remain distracted with our attention elsewhere, so that we experience ourselves as irrevocably separate, fragmented and isolated with all that brings. Knowing this is where ‘United in Harmony’ starts!
You can watch my presentation below:
Upgrading the world
This shift of attention and awareness towards something more fundamental can be taught. It’s possible to not only experience this deeper ground of being, but also apply it to one’s life-world of doing too. This is what we call conscious action. The benefits are an upgrade of how we think, act, feel and see. The output is wellness, resilience, purpose, insight, creativity and connection.
My talk introduced some background insight along with some introductory experiential practices and techniques. In the last 40 years, (starting with the work of David Bhom) there has been a huge expansion of research and knowledge in areas where ancient yoga philosophy and modern quantum and noetic science overlap, impacting on how we think about wellbeing, insight, creativity and happiness.
Older ideas of a Newtonian universe of matter, space and time, organised mechanically with the human mind-body composed of molecules and atoms are being replaced by new observations which see the universe and ourselves as flowing information contained in fields of unlimited potential. This shift of emphasis sets out to rebalance our experiences towards an unlimited spacious consciousness, from particle to wave, from doing to being, from thinking to knowing from prakriti to purusha. This whole new way of being ourselves (which in fact was there all along) impacts on everything in terms of how we observe, create and act, moment by moment.
Self – Activation
This shift of orientation, of staying present is something we have to remember all of the time, or as often as we can. This is what Modern Meditation is for so that we can learn to reset our nervous systems and our neural pathways to stay on track and begin to discriminate between what we might call your not-self and your – Self – spelled that way with a large ‘S’. Because that part of you is the real YOU!
Learning to Self – Activate like this places us all at the beginning of a new and exciting and perhaps more human way of learning and teaching which merge creativity, joy, purpose and meaning into one unified field of flowing wholeness. In the end, the key to finding purpose is not much what you do but HOW you do it because in that unified space you will find everything you need. This is where we continue to develop practical ways of implementing these concepts in our Modern Meditation based coaching work.
Our aim at beanddo is to help make the 21st Century a conscious moment where we all stop, noticed and take inspired action.
You don’t need to go anywhere to find what you are looking for. All you need to do is to stop and notice. Learn to upgrade your perception, modify attitudes, be still, open-up and learn to get into the flow of things. Because, behind the appearance of everything, under every experience, thought, feeling and action is an infinite ocean of creative conscious potential. The waves of this ocean are playful and inviting.
Dare to get into the ocean
Every moment this ocean dares you to dive in, catch a wave and turn it into an inspired conscious action. And this applies to everything you do whether you are walking the dog, writing a novel, designing a cathedral, making pasta, flying to the International Space Station or performing a simple act of human kindness and encouragement.
This ocean of unlimited pure consciousness is the very source of who you are.
