I picked up Calvin McCoard’s book “Return To The Absolute” because of my longstanding curiosity about the connection between science and spirituality.
Were you ever taught that science (physics, specifically) dealt with aspects of physical reality, and everything outside of what we can perceive and observe falls in the realm of religion? I always believed that there has to be a connection.
The Laws of Physics
Calvin McCoard approaches the discussion on different laws of physics by showing us proof that everything is in (or naturally seeks) balance. For example, if there’s a balance of pressure inside and outside of a bubble, it will stay where it is and maintain its shape. But if there is an imbalance, the bubble will lose its spherical shape or move to become balanced again.
Calvin also helped me to finally understand Quantum Physics in its simplest terms:
- Quantum Physics introduces us to the idea of a unified energy field.
- Quantum Physics challenges the concept of separate objects and separate parts of the universe.
- Quantum Physics shows us that if there’s a single indivisible conscious energy field that we’re all a part of, it challenges the idea that we are separate from other people, the mountains or the oceans.
There’s so much more to it, but I will leave it at that for now.
In the second part of “Return To The Absolute,” Calvin McCoard describes the natural tendency or flow of reality from the idea of dualism, or separateness, to the Absolute/God. He discusses philosophies such as Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity, Kabbalah, and Sikhism. He also mentions the law of karma. When we put out certain energy, there is a corresponding energy that comes back to us, which balances the duality of energy that goes out and energy received.
The infamous Law of Attraction even relates to the laws of physics.
When you think of your thoughts as energy, you can probably see that thoughts radiated out would receive matching energy frequencies back to return to balance. In other words, if we focus on what we want to bring into our experience, we will radiate energy like the energy of what we want to receive, which will come back to us through the flow back to balance and the Absolute/God.
Calvin also discusses how the Law of Repulsion is another part of the picture of the natural return of balance demonstrated in physics.
I also want to mention Calvin‘s art that he shares with us throughout the book. He is an awesome artist. I am so appreciative that he has written this book.
I could go on and on about how much I enjoyed learning from the concepts he discussed. I hope this helps someone out there.
