But can we fully grasp what infinity is? If consciousness simply is, and is all that is, then each of us would be part of that consciousness. Therefore, we would all be connected. Are we, in fact, all connected? The idea that we are all connected seems plausible based on the evidence we've seen. For example, recall from article 3 the concept of quantum entanglement. In quantum entanglement, the states of two physically distant particles mirror each other instantaneously. He was working in the organic gardens at the prestigious Stone Barns Center outside of New York City when he floated the idea of opening his own vegetable farm. My boss was really adamant that I couldn't do it. Today he owns Alewife Farm and is featured on the Stone Barns website. When five-foot-one Ann Marie DeAngelo first tried out for the Joffrey Ballet, the director told her, We can't use you right now because you're too short. Ann Marie was incensed. She went back to work, made the troupe, became its leading ballerina, and was later named associate director. There was a quote from Calvin Coolidge that my mother used to say: Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. <a href=''>Talent</a> will not--nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. <a href=''>Genius</a> will not--unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. <a href=''>Education</a> will not--the world is full of educated derelicts. <a href=''>And</a> when it got too cold, he liked to practice his swing in the garage. <a href=''>But</a> that didn't keep him from wishing they were someplace warmer, maybe in a neighborhood with a real field. <a href=''>Sharlee</a> came into the living room, wearing her tutu. <br /><br /><a href=''>A</a> tiara was perched on top of her long, curly hair, securely pinned but leaning a little to the left. <a href=''>She</a> had a smile on her face that made the rest of them laugh. <a href=''>I'm</a> a princess ballerina! <a href=''>Is</a> it time yet? <a href=''>Not</a> yet, baby, said Mrs. <a href=''>Soon,</a> though. <a href=''>Time</a> for what? <a href=''>This</a> phenomenon points toward the existence of invisible connections that we can't see with our eyes. <a href=''>NDErs</a> such as Anita Moorjani sometimes describe a feeling of oneness. <a href=''>She</a> recalls feeling that she encompassed--no became--everything and everyone63 [emphasis in original]. <a href=''>This</a> idea also appears during some life reviews in NDEs. <a href=''>Recall</a> a passage from article 9 in which an NDEr describes a life review: Not only did I perceive everything from my own viewpoint, but I also knew the thoughts of everyone involved in the event, as if I had their thoughts within me. <a href=''>This</a> meant that I perceived not only what I had done or thought, but even in what way it had influenced others, as if I saw things with all-seeing eyes. <a href=''>Furthermore,</a> psychic phenomena suggest a hidden interconnectedness among minds. <a href=''>Dr</a> Radin goes as far as to posit an entangled minds theory, arguing that these phenomena are an unavoidable consequence of living in an interconnected, entangled physical reality. <a href=''>Physicist</a> Nassim Haramein provides a similar perspective in his 2016 essay The Physics of Oneness: We live in a highly entangled, interconnected universe where a fundamental information field is shared across all scales to generate organized matter and eventually self-organizing systems, leading to organisms reflecting back on themselves asking fundamental questions about existence. <a href=''>This</a> process drives evolutionary mechanisms in which the environment influences the individual and the individual influences the environment, in a nonlocal interconnected wholeness--a universe that is ultimately ONE. <a href=''>Persistence</a> and determination alone are omnipotent. <a href=''>From</a> naysayers to nudgers, comforters to slappers, outside voices play a pivotal role in our life transitions. <a href=''>They</a> are Sancho Panza to our Don Quixote, Huck to our Tom, Laverne to our Shirley. <br /><br /><a href=''>They</a> are co-narrators as we reframe and rewrite our life stories. <a href=''>They</a> are buoys in our loneliest tides. <a href=''>They</a> are the confidants, the companions, and sometimes even the critics who inch us one step closer to finally achieving our new selves. <a href=''>Launch</a> It <a href=''>Unveil</a> Your New Self <a href=''>One</a> day it just happens. <a href=''>A</a> tinge of normalcy appears, a glimmer of light, an inhale that need not pass a clenched jaw, an exhale that doesn't end in a sigh. <a href=''>Derek</a> said, acting like he didn't know. <a href=''>Sharlee</a> cried. <a href=''>My</a> recital! <a href=''>I</a> remember now. <a href=''>Derek</a> laughed. <a href=''>Just</a> kidding, Sharlee. <a href=''>I</a> didn't forget. <a href=''>And</a> if I did, something tells me you'd remind me. <a href=''>But</a> you're coming, aren't you? <a href=''>Sure</a> I am! <a href=''>And</a> recall that Nobel Prize-winning physicist Erwin Schrodinger even explicitly stated: In truth, there is only one mind. <a href=''>The</a> idea that we are all one sounds nice, but I don't feel it. <a href=''>I</a> look around and see objects and people who are separate from me. <br /><br /><a href=''>They</a> are them. <a href=''>How</a> could it be that we are all one? <a href=''>Let's</a> do an exercise (inspired by and adapted from Rupert Spira's teachings) that will require close inspection of your own experience. <a href=''>Go</a> as slowly through this segment as needed. <a href=''>Imagine</a> that you see a tree in the far distance. <a href=''>We</a> are conditioned to think: I am here, and there is a separate tree over there. <a href=''>But</a> is that accurate? <a href=''>The</a> past no longer casts such a long shadow; <a href=''>Even</a> when this moment comes early in the transition, before a person says their full goodbyes or fully weathers the mess, the symbolic importance is still the same. <a href=''>It's</a> time to launch fresh projects, share your work, celebrate your progress. <a href=''>Unveil</a> your new self. <a href=''>I</a> Used the New Me to Free Lots of People Who Were Just Like the Old Me <a href=''>Steven</a> Hassan was the third child of middle-class parents in Flushing, Queens. <a href=''>His</a> mother taught eighth grade; <a href=''>When</a> I turned seventeen, both my older sisters got married and left the house, Steven said. <a href=''>My</a> father asked me if I wanted the hardware store. <a href=''>I</a> was writing poetry and short stories, I imagined myself becoming writer. <a href=''>By</a> the end of the third inning, with the game still scoreless, it was time for them to go. <a href=''>Derek</a> had been checking out the window every few minutes all morning, to see if he could spot the mailman coming with his letter from Little League. <a href=''>Now</a> he checked the mailbox on their way out, only to find that the box was still empty. <br /><br /><a href=''>Maybe</a> they had forgotten him. <a href=''>They</a> all piled into the family car. <a href=''>Derek</a> sure hoped the letter was there by the time they came home--because practice started tomorrow, and if he didn't get a team assignment, what was he going to do? <a href=''>The</a> school gym was packed, with folding chairs from wall to wall filled with parents and other family members applauding the pint-size dancers on the stage. <a href=''>Derek</a> saw some of his friends there, in the role of older brother, watching their little sisters perform. <a href=''>Two</a> of them, Jason Bradley and Harry Hicks, told him they were on the Yankees. <a href=''>They</a> were really good players. <a href=''>What</a> do you truly know of the tree? <a href=''>The</a> only thing you truly know of the tree is your experience of it. <a href=''>And</a> your experience of it is that you see it. <a href=''>It</a> is a visual experience. <a href=''>Now</a> I ask: Where does your experience of seeing it occur? <a href=''>Does</a> seeing the tree occurhere' or does it occur over there'? <a href=''>In</a> fact, you realize that your seeing of the tree occurs right here, within your field of consciousness. <a href=''>In</a> other words, what you have been labeling tree over there is really just a visual perception that occurs here rather than over there. <a href=''>The</a> tree is nothing more than a modulation of your field of consciousness. <a href=''>So</a> the tree is made of consciousness. <a href=''>I</a> said,Absolutely not,' and enrolled in Queens College. Steven studied creative writing. I was an introvert, terribly shy, and I was really interested in sex, he said.
