A Doctor's Reflection on |
A Spiritual Life
Absolute or Ultimate Reality
There is an eternal, unchanging state beyond our own state of relativity. This state is believed to be the source of all things.
Some called it simply the Source. Others called it Tao. For the Buddhists, this state is equivalent to the state of Nibbana – the unchanged. The atheist religions would recognize this as God, the Creator of all things. The name is not important but we need to be clear with the definition or its quality.
This state is what is called the Absolute Reality.
It is unchanging, all pervasive and all embracing. It is also, in the Tibetan teachings, Emptiness. Emptiness, however, must not be equated with nothingness. In this case, Emptiness is not without value or without existence. Emptiness IS the value, for in Emptiness all things are possible. From Emptiness all things exist.
In “The Holographic Universe”, Michael Talbot mentioned that one of our most eminent physicists, Bohm, actually suggested that there is an implicate order and an explicate order. The implicate order is one out of which all things arise from, forming the explicate order or our holographic universe.
I believe that we would eventually learned that this implicate order refers to the Absolute Reality and the explicate order our Relative Reality.
