The Zero Point
There has been a lot of chatter lately in the scientific community about the idea that there is no such thing as a vacuum – that if we could get to a point that is generally considered to be empty we would find that it is not empty, but a source of unlimited energy. This illusive point which is a source of unlimited energy has been called the “zero point.”
Actually, this idea is not new. Nicolas Tesla talked a bout this unlimited source way back in 1891. He said:
“Throughout space there is energy…If this energy is kinetic then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the wheel-work of nature…Many generations may pass, but in time our machinery will be driven by energy available at any point of the universe.”
The truth is that talk of this zero point is much more ancient than Tesla. Lao-Tzu, the founder of Taoism taught about it around five centuries before Christ. He said that all creation that we see about us is the result of an interplay of dual forces such as light and dark, hot and cold, up and down etc. There is a point between all these dual things that is the source of all things, the creator of all things and a place of unlimited power. He called this the great Tao.
Even the Bible alludes to this zero point Paul said, “that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.” Heb 11:3 New American Standard
Centuries earlier from the Old Testament we read:
“He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing.” Job 26:7.
Here we see that a point of nothingness is powerful enough to suspend our entire planet.
While looking for this zero point to release its energy to power our cities may be illusive there is another zero point that is within ourselves that is accessible to all and is also a point of unlimited resources.
It is human nature to focus on an extreme, or at least to take a side or have a view on a matter. Most feel they are either conservative or liberal, lean to the left or the right, are emotional or mental, spiritual or material etc. The problem is that it is the tendency of us humans to pick one side and place all our attention there to the exclusion of the other half of existence.
For instance, many who label themselves as “conservative” or “liberal” seek to be pure in their ideology. They shun everything that smells of agreement or cooperation with the other side.
Many who see themselves as spiritual shun anything that seems material and many who depend only on what the eyes see shun the spiritual or any consideration of God or the unseen.
If a person stays polarized on one side and keeps his attention there then he will never find the zero point. To find the zero point the attention has to swing back and forth. Without this swinging back and forth the zero point is never crossed. To find the point the attention must cross the point. To cross the point the seeker must focus on one side and then the other. To find the point he must seek find the point that exists between the two extremes. Then when he senses a nearness to that point he must abide by this injunction:
“Be still, and know that I am God.” Psalms 46:10
He or she will then let the mind focus on that still point, wherein lies the peace that passes all understanding, and a door will be open to unlimited resources.
Some of the benefits the seeker receives are.
(1) The ability to be at peace when surrounded by chaos.
(2) The discovery of the key to joy and happiness.
(3) The power of detachment.
(4) An understanding of spiritual love.
(5) An acceptance of that which one cannot change.
(6) Contact with or awareness of non physical life.
(7) A real sense of where the truth lies.
(8) A sense of oneness and brotherhood with all life.
(9) Greater access to the source of ideas and inspiration.
(10) A greater sense of values – a realization that there are many things more important than physical possessions.
These are just a few of the benefits. The rewards are indeed great for those few souls who will release themselves from their dogmas and set their minds free to roam until the zero point is discovered.
If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.
