Our studies of the book “Matter into Feeling” by Dr. Fred Alan Wolf with Quantum Leap Book Club came to completion April 17. Here are some of the thoughts which impacted me. Dr. Wolf shared his views on the interaction of thoughts and feelings. He discussed the fact that often feelings and thoughts do not correspond. Yet as Dr. Wolf shares, “feeling is the fundamental awareness out of which all of the other senses develop”. The story of Narcissus who fell in love with his appearance and ended up staring at his reflection in the river until he died was used by Dr. Wolf as an extreme example of being trapped in our physical body. There is a tendency of mankind to get lost in “self” and be separate from “Spirit”.
There is power in the fact that our thoughts can change our feelings. We use our thoughts as ways of dealing with feelings and for finding solutions to meet the needs behind the feelings.
As Dr. Wolf observes, “the more spiritually awakened we are leads to a reduced concern for feelings associated with our material existence.” There is a tendency for humans to not allow ourselves to experience our connection to the Source. Yet we have control of what we can experience and feel. There exists an infinite field of possibilities including health, wealth, and happiness.
Steps leading to change: First awareness of how we have seen ourselves as separate entities. Second to recognize we can choose consciously to live separate or connected with a growing awareness of the contrast on breath-to-breath life. Third is the acceptance of the truth that we bring into our lives what we focus on. Fourth is the recognition of the role of resistance as the opportunity/invitation to change perception.
A balloon can be used as an example. Why would you separate the air into the inside and outside air? If not for the balloon, there is no inside air and outside air. The inside air is something like the ego and the outside air is something like the Cosmic Consciousness; the thin wall of the balloon is what we can call ignorance. It is that ignorance, that film, that makes things seem separate. When that ignorance is broken, when the balloon bursts, the inside air becomes one with the outside air and there is no more separation. But as long as there is a balloon, if you keep on blowing, what happens? At a particular point whether you let the air out or when it bursts on its own, there is only one air.
The journey through this book of “Matter into Feeling” with the gift of Dr.Wolf’s science expertise allows readers to develop a well-rounded understanding of some of the limited perspectives we have entertained. I invite you to explore for yourself the clarity of this renowned author.
I am privileged to be a co-host on a fun, interesting, and life changing radio show called Quantum Leap Book Club. We focus on books that celebrate the incredible expansion and changes in Consciousness in our world. Currently, we are reading “Matter into Feeling” by Dr. Fred Alan Wolf.
