I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything we talk about, everything we regard as existing, postulates consciousness.
Max Planck, Ph.D., Nobel Prize winning physicist
“When I first became aware of this quote that Planck spoke in 1931, I realized it was the definition of God that I had been looking for all of my life. He puts Consciousness at the base of all life as opposed to materialist scientists that put matter at the base.
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had a tendency toward spiritual enthusiasm. This quote led me to my current, and ever evolving, definition of God which is, “God is the quantum field of infinite intelligence and love: a divine, responsive, and dynamic co-creative force of energy in which all life is embedded, including us. A force that exists within everything, enlivens everything, and from which everything is made manifest.”
This makes God something that is reciprocal, something with which we are in constant collaboration. We are co-directors with this force. For the sake of this truth, it’s crucial that we be in constant pursuit of the highest values that support all of life.”
