When you observe with attention, you change your reality.
Abundance or wealth means that one can easily fulfill his desires, whatever they may be, whether they are in the sphere of matter or emotional, psychological, spiritual needs or in the sphere of relationships. The attention of a truly wealthy person never focuses only on money. In addition, a wealthy person never has any financial concerns.
You may have millions of dollars in the bank, but if you constantly think about money, if you worry about it – that you don’t have enough, you want to get more or you afraid that you lose it, then, regardless of the amount of money you own, you are poor. As Oskar Wilde once said,
There is only one class in the community that thinks more about money than the rich, and that is the poor. The poor can think of nothing else.
Having real wealth or being prosperous implies a completely carefree attitude towards anything in life, even for money. True wealth consciousness is, therefore, the consciousness of the source of every material reality. This source is pure consciousness, pure awareness, the unified field, the quantum field of all possibilities.
How to Comprehend the Quantum Field
We can’t get to know the quantum field only by focusing on it, because it is, by definition, transcendent of thought. But, we can have experiential knowledge of this field through transcendence, knowing it as our own intimate nature.
When we go beyond, we understand non-verbally, without the use of words. We gain direct knowledge without the intransigent mediation of speech. This is the value of meditation that gives us the experience of pure Being, although the experience of pure Being is in itself an expression of pure joy and bliss.
The main advantage of interchanging meditation and activity is that the more we plunge into the field of pure Being, of pure consciousness and awareness, the more our activity is impregnated; and then, our activity acquires the qualities that are inherent to the pure Being: infinity, limitlessness, abundance, prosperity.
The best way to comprehend this pure field is meditation. It also helps us to understand these qualities mentally and to turn our attention to them because everything we experience is the result of the quality of our attention.
Quantum Field and Observation
Let’s talk more about the quantum field. Physicists tell us that as we pass beyond the sphere of the subatomic particles, and by extension everything that is “real”, when we try to look and understand these particles (quarks, bosons, leptons etc.), they are so small that we can’t even measure them. There are not available instruments to measure the infinite magnitude of these particles. They are actually so small that we can only think about them.
There is a very interesting fact about these particles: nobody has ever seen them. So if you can’t see these subatomic particles, if you can’t observe them, how can you know if they exist? And the answer is that we know their existence by the traces they leave in particle accelerators. In areas that scientists investigate the subatomic theories, one can see -even photograph- the traces that these particles leave behind. And by looking at them, one knows that they have really been there. But there is another interesting aspect of these particles: they seem to exist only when we observe them.
Therefore, if we observe a quantum field, every time we focus our attention on it, these particles instantly flash into beings. And every time we turn our attention away, they disappear into the emptiness. They light up and turn off like tiny lights in a dark chamber. You can imagine the dark chamber as the infinite, unlimited space, and the glimpse of the existence of the particles only be done by focusing our attention on the field.
When you focus your attention on the field, the particles emerge into beings. When your attention is focused elsewhere, then it’s only a range of probabilities in the field of all possibilities. Each particle is at the same time a wave, and it’s a wave until the moment of observation. A wave is not limited to a specific place in space or time; it is diffused. That’s why it is called a range of probabilities in the field of all possibilities. It determines the statistical probability of finding a particle at a certain position at the moment of observation – that is, the moment of attention. It is the attention that changes the probability range, the wave, the probability distribution, for a possible measurement.
Attention takes the range of probabilities and gives it physical existence, only by the simple act of observation, and this is, of course, the focus of our attention on it.
