A Whole World-View as a Unifying Framework for an Integral Science of Healing
By Dr. Jude Currivan
We are struggling with two global dis-eases; the COVID- pandemic, and, even more fundamentally, our fragmented perception of the nature of reality itself. To cure the first, we now have vaccines. To heal the second, we urgently need to transform our collectively mistaken perception of reality as being solely material and made up of separate things.
Our beliefs, whether correct or otherwise, drive our behaviors. The materialist perspective of our dis-ease and the illusion of separation it fosters have driven dysfunctional and unsustainable behavioral “symptoms” that have caused conflicts, inequalities, and injustices, not only for us but for the way we treat our planetary home — and have now brought us to a pivotal moment of choice.
We’re discovering that such a limited and fragmented view of reality is fundamentally wrong. Instead, a wholistic and scientifically based understanding is emerging that’s not only converging but integrating with universal spirituality and ancient and Indigenous wisdom teachings of many traditions.
It’s showing that our Universe exists and evolves as an innately interconnected and ultimately unified entity — and with its appearance arising from deeper levels of meaning and causation. It’s showing that it’s far more than its solely material appearance, and that separation is an illusion. Scientific evidence at all scales of existence and across numerous fields of research is revealing that everything in our Universe is in relationship with everything else.
Whilst deep clues to this awareness are founded in quantum and relativistic physics, which describe energy-matter and space-time, this new perception goes much further. It is discovering that the appearance of our Universe in its totality is an emergent phenomenon of more fundamental non-physical and causative realms of cosmic intelligence and unified reality. Increasing understanding and discoveries of the intrinsic role of information and the so-called holographic principle, are enabling the cosmological framework of this whole world-view to be developed.
Crucially, it’s showing the primacy of mind and consciousness to the nature of reality, as espoused by Max Planck, Albert Einstein, John Archibald Wheeler, David Bohm, and other pioneering scientists. Ever-increasing evidence is showing how cosmic mind, articulated as digitized information and represented as dynamic and relational patterns and processes of, crucially, meaningful in-formation, literally in-forms the formation of our Universe — as a “great thought,” to paraphrase the eminent scientist Sir James Jeans.
The mathematical signature and relational patterns of this new comprehension are being found from cosmology, physics, and chemistry, to biology, complex systems, and in collective human behaviors. Their self-similar patterns, known as fractals, occur at enormously differing scales of existence. Extending from individual atoms to vast, galactic clusters, they’re all-pervasive throughout the meaningfully in-formational appearance of our Universe.
Discoveries are also showing that our Universe was so exquisitely ordered and fine-tuned from its beginning, not in the implied chaos of a big bang but more as the first moment of an ongoing big breath, and that it embodies an inherent evolutionary impulse from simplicity to complexity and ever greater self-awareness — it exists to evolve. And as its microcosmic co-creators, we are part of its evolutionary impulse and share a vital purpose at this pivotal moment for ourselves and for our planetary home, Gaia.
Offering a unifying framework, this whole world-view naturally encompasses a science of whole-person healing. On the basis that mind and consciousness aren’t something we have but what we and the whole world are, it also extends our human health to our healthy relationships with Gaia and all her children.
It recognizes that we are in-formational beings where dis-ease results from disruptions and disturbances to our healthy in-formational processes and flows — mental, emotional, and physical. Consequentially, it supports an integral approach, with modalities that utilize the vibrational, resonant, and coherent properties of such biofield integration, and treats health issues wholistically.
Such a whole world-view also offers a natural and inclusive framework for the validation of all supernormal phenomena, from synchronicities and intuitive insights to the power of intention, telepathy, remote viewing, and precognition.
The science of healing and health is essentially a science of love. It offers an opportunity to heal our collective psyche, which has been dis-membered, through the re-membering of who we really are. As we heal our worldview, I believe we can heal ourselves — and as we heal ourselves, we can heal our behaviors.
This realization of unity expressed in diversity invites us to come together; to link up and lift up in service to the healing of our relationship with Gaia and the multidimensional web of life she nurtures. On an even greater scale, such healing reminds us and re-hearts us that we stand on the bow wave of the evolutionary impulse of our entire Universe. Empowering us to act local, feel global, and think cosmic, this is our moment of choice; to remain un-healed in the illusion of separation, or to heal ourselves and our relationships with the whole world.
