What is the True Nature of Reality?


“What science is discovering is that we have a thinking body. Every cell in our body thinks. Every cell in our body is actually a mind. Every cell has its own desires and it communicates with every other cell. The new word is not mind and body connection, we have a body-mind simultaneously everywhere…

[T]he mind has escaped the confines of the brain. It’s not confined to the brain, it’s everywhere in our body. And if that wasn’t enough, it seems that now it’s breaking the confines of the body – out there. Our mind is not even imprisoned in our body. It’s completely non-local. It’s everywhere in space and time. In fact, our mind is part of a non-local field of information that we can only call the cosmic mind

We are not skin-encapsulated egos confined to a bag of skin and bones. We may be the Universal Mind itself…

At one time a fundamentalist preacher met a Vedantist, and the two were talking for a while. After a while the fundamentalist looked at the Vedantist and he said, “It seems to me that you’re an atheist.” And the Vedantist looked back at the fundamentalist and he said, “I used to be one until I realized I was God.” And of course this offended the fundamentalist who said, “Are you denying the divinity of Jesus Christ?” And the Vedantist said, “Heavens! I’ve never denied anybody their divinity. Why would I do it to Jesus Christ?”

This is the essential teaching of the Vedic tradition, and it has very practical applications. The Veda says, “As is the atom, so is the universe; as is the microcosm so is the macrocosm; as is the human body, so is the Cosmic Body; as is the human mind, so is the Cosmic Mind.” …

Our bodies are literally the music of nature. We have here a symphony which is part of a symphony that has been there forever. The Veda says, “Behind the mask of mortality is that quantum mechanical body, that subtle Causal Body, it’s something you always had. You always had that. Fire cannot burn it. Water cannot wet it. Wind cannot dry it. Weapons cannot cleave it. It was never born and it never dies.”‘ ~Deepak Chopra
