Some people look at the world and only pay attention to the 5 senses.
Some people are completely absorbed in knowledge, science and the need to prove everything.
Others see, feel and experience a greater sense beyond the typical 5 and this is where the magic of life lives!!
Today I want to briefly take a look at a deeper more subtle level of who we all are. This may sound a bit mystical so allow your mind to be open to these ideas and then you can add or delete this information to your personal philosophy of life
Repeating Patterns Of Life
I came across this question the other day…
Question: How Many Atoms Are There in a Human Cell? It’s a huge number, so there is no exact figure, plus cells are different sizes and are growing and dividing all the time. Here’s a look at the answer.
Answer: According to an estimate made by engineers at Washington University, there are around 10 to the 14th power of atoms in a typical human cell. Another way of looking at it is that this is 100,000,000,000,000 or 100 trillion atoms. Interestingly, the number of cells in the human body is estimated to be about the same as the number of atoms in a human cell.
(Also interesting, there are an estimate 100-400 billion stars in the milk way Galaxy and there are an estimated 100 billion Galaxies, some galaxies may even contain a trillion stars, Wikipedia, and this is in the observable universe.)
But there is still work to become more accurate of the number and of cells and atoms that make up who we are. This article from National Geographic speak about how many cells in the human body based on varying estimation methods (remember atoms make up cells) But provides a deeper look into the amazingly staggering gigantic number of physical parts that make our body’s.
Here’s the point
Imagine attempting to coordinate 100 or even 1000 people to do and act in such a way that everyone is productive, effective and efficient resulting in success in accomplishing the creation of a project. Not impossible, but a big job for sure.
Now take a look at some of these proposed numbers of what makes you, you.
Even on the most conservative side of 15,000,000,000 (15 Billion) cells and on the more dramatic side of greater than 100,000,000,000,000 (100 Trillion) cells in your body, made up of 100-200 Trillion atoms each equates to 1 potential 200 Septillion atoms. (that a 2 with 24 zeros behind it), To make your head spin a bit more … each atom is made of up subatomic particles, which are further made up of even smaller particles…. does it end??? Regardless, these particles combine and coordinate to create you. All of you!!! And you are perfect! (stay tuned for an article letting you grasp this idea… so follow this blog and expand your mind)
That’s millions upon billions upon trillions of intelligent components moving, living, dieing, regenerating, and reacting to what is going on. How is this possible??
“It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together.“
I am having a bit of fun, but in my opinion this is 100% accurate. There is a force within all of us, that is ever present and contains all the knowledge of existence.
The idea of the Force that is made drastically popular in the Star Wars movies but comes to us from ancient practices that are still in use today… world wide. These principles are contained in the philosophy of Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, and Buddhism to name a few of the more widely practiced religions as well as beliefs that are considered pagan.
(The word pagan has been bastardized to serve a purpose of eradication of ideas and practices by the winning warring society… think Romans conquering native peoples throughout Europe. In my understanding, being a pagan means to describe one who practices a method of higher reverence to the earth, stars and planets and the interconnectedness of ourselves and society to these entities- completely the opposite of what many ‘educated’ people think)
Getting beyond some of the dogma of any particular religious practice one can begin to see the interconnections of what mankind has been searching for since existence. Understanding purpose, understanding life, understanding meaning, understanding our connection to it all.
Here’s an Example
The rainbow of colors you can choose from to paint your house appears endless (just try to pick one color..lol) but none-the-less every color falls under the category of paint.
Likewise, all things in existence, whether physical or non-physical, are made up of packets of energy (molecules, atoms, and subatomic particles) These packets of energy, in varying combinations, provide everything to all of us.
There is a unseen force that binds all the matter together. There is an intelligence that operates beyond our conscious control to animate this matter. This triune is the Law of life – the circle of life – or whatever else you want to call it.
Getting a bit Complicated
After reading my blog for grammar, spelling, etc etc, I realize this is some complicated thinking. Well this is a time of thinking and understanding… but be assured.. there is simplicity in all of it. Have faith.
Read the other blog posts… it has taken me a lot of reading, theorizing, watching, listening, attending lectures, seminars, video conferences, and the likes to come to this current feeling of “I am finally scratching through the surface” of what we are, what our purpose in life may be, and why it matters.
As a natural health professional I am constantly on the look out for simplifying my understanding and explanations of what breaks our body’s down and what builds them up! Often, what gets over looked is the fact that all aspects of our life, which is the key-stone of our lives, are regulated and coordinated by the communication networks within the body. This system is a combination of the brain and nervous system, meridian system, chakra system and the other luminous energy aspects of who we are. These systems carry the universal and innate intelligence forces, the communications of the external & internal environments of who we all are to be processed in out minds. Of tremendous interest to me, these systems of communication are mirrored in greater and smaller ways throughout nature found on earth and in the universe.
It’s all in the pursuit of Happiness
This one phrase has led me to countless hours of discussion and levels of thinking and experiencing that I will always cherish and I hope to pay that forward to you.
Keep reading, ask me questions, and find your happiness. Your thoughts and questions spawn my creativity… so lets create more together and help one another get to the far side of this complex thinking and find the simplicity that life has to offer.
With Love and Light
PS. Happiness may come in a different way than what you expect!
