God is My Strength and My Song | Amit Ray Teachings
Saint Amit Ray said, “Compassion needs strength, but with all limitations, compassion is my God, compassion is my strength and my song of life.” Compassion is the drive for the highest level of evolution. In my journeys of compassion his teachings helped me a lot. I have developed a new fire in my heart for helping people and do experiments with compassion in my own way.
The definition of compassion is a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is hurting, in pain, or has misfortune and is accompanied by a strong desire to help the suffering. Buddha, Jesus Christ, Mother Teresa, Sri Amit Ray are the greatest examples of someone who tried to live with true compassion. In my journey of compassion God is my strength. Compassion is truly, a life-changing experience for me!
By the word God, Amit Ray generally refers to the all-pervading supreme healing power that is flowing in our breath and in our consciousness – the common field of quantum consciousness. The idea of modern science is that consciousness arises from quantum mechanical phenomena in the brain. Some scientists observe that the phosphorus nuclei have a quantum property called spin, which makes them rather like little magnets with poles pointing in particular directions. In an entangled state, the spin of one phosphorus nucleus depends on that of the other. The nuclear spins of phosphorus atoms could serve as rudimentary “qubits” in the brain. Brain is a complex quantum Bayesian inference machine with non-linear system, capable of chaotic dynamics with quantum coherence through ion channels. There are many stochastic neuronal mechanisms quantum processes in our sensory cells.
“A human being is a part of a whole, called by us “universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest… a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” — Albert Einstein
Normally, quantum effects cannot be observed in living systems at the macroscopic level. Human brains consist of massive, layered networks of specialized signaling cells with 10,000 communication points per cell, and interacting up to 1000 Hz. Human are highly organized, goal-directed, adaptive, selectionist, information-preserving, functionally redundant, multi-cellular, quasi-autonomous, highly mobile, reproducing, dissipative systems that conserve many fundamental features over remarkably long periods of time. While brains evolved over hundreds of millions of years, and individual brains grow over months, years and decades, conscious events appear to have a duty cycle of ∼100 ms, fading after a few seconds. When we understand the the common field of quantum consciousness, it will be easier for us to spread love for every being as Einstein mentioned.
The great masters of all religions and spiritual traditions have provided many road maps for the journey in the path of kindness and compassion. Deep down we must have real affection for each other, we must cultivate inner compassion and outer tolerance and respect for unity in diversity.
