Tiny Sparks of Light

A wise friend brought up the concept of objective reality to me today. A little bit more on that topic can be found here. Here is my dumbed down, and perhaps slightly incorrect synopsis of the idea:
Physicists found that observed energy behaves in a different way than unobserved energy. Matter constantly moves in and out of existence like a thought. There is no matter…it is only energy. If you have a few minutes, watch this:
So, imagine a vast universe, full of energy not yet made into matter. The minute you focus on a piece of this energy in the form of thought, it becomes more…focused.
During lunch today, I spent my time meditating in the unused breakroom at work. I quietly sat and imagined a vast, unlimited field of possibilities. I realized, I can choose at any moment where I focus my energy and what reality I live in. That is the power of perception.
I have also being studying the Jewish idea of “sparks”…little particles of energy – either positive or negative – that we attract to us and simultaneously put out into the world. I imagined thousands of tiny golden sparks being attracted to me, clingling to my body like a thousand drops of dew. These tiny sparks of golden light were love, were peace, where positive charges that protected me throughout the day like a million little guardian angels. (Which, by the way, is what Kabbalists equate these sparks too.)
There is no real point to this post, except to share this experience. And each day, as I add more nurturing and love into my life – the more at peace I feel.
