Become a Quantum Activist_Featured_, Quantum Physics Sunday, August 5th, 2012
Quantum Activism is about changing ourselves and creating a better world in accordance with the new paradigm articulated by Quantum Physics: consciousness creates reality. The goal of a quantum activist is to express Good, Beauty, Truth, Justice, and Love in their life and to intend those qualities for all of humanity. In doing so, the quantum activist will help transform the world.
This article is based upon the teachings of Dr. Amit Goswami, Ph.D., a retired professor emeritus of theoretical physics and the author of “Quantum Mechanics”, a highly successful textbook that is used in universities throughout the world. In addition, he the author of numerous books that bridge science and spirituality including “The Self-Aware Universe”, “Physics of the Soul”, “Quantum Creativity”, “The Quantum Doctor”, and “God is Not Dead.”
All of the quotes below are from either Dr. Goswami’s latest book “How Quantum Activism Can Save Civilization: A Few People Can Change Human Evolution” or the quantumactivist.com website that describes the award winning documentary starring Dr. Goswami called “The Quantum Activist.” There is enough here to give you a taste of their content. For a complete understanding, I highly recommend that you read the book and watch the documentary, which is available on Netflix.
Quantum Activism Quotes
“We have problems galore in our society and culture. All of these problems can be traced to the conflict between spirituality and materiality. The good news is that the worldview conflict between spirituality and materialist science has been resolved in favor of an inclusive world-view based on the primacy of consciousness and quantum physics. It took quantum physics for us to discover spirituality within science. We must use quantum physics’ guidance to restore spirituality and unity to our society.”
“We have created the problems of our world; we have to recreate the world of solutions… Conventional activism separates, us (those doing right) versus them (those doing wrong). Quantum physics says that all is movement of consciousness; we are the world. There is no us versus them. There is only movement toward consciousness or away from consciousness.”
“Quantum activism focuses both on individual and collective change. Today our activists perpetuate the separateness that creates the problems we want resolved. We ‘battle’ the perpetrators of the problems, negativity with negativity. Quantum activism will succeed where other activist movements failed because they are founded on separateness.”
“Start with yourself. Only if you change can the world change. We are just taking it a little bit further. Not only do you start with yourself, but always remember others.”
“We need to change first. We need to be inclined towards positive. If our own hearts are open and we approach things with love, then other people will pick it up.”
“Even if only a small fraction of us become inspired to change, the change will come for all.”
“Quantum physics is the physics of possibilities; possibilities proliferate when we sit quietly in the ‘be’ mode, doing nothing. Occasionally, we choose from among the possibilities precipitating an action, a ‘do’ mode.”
“If some of us could practice do good, be good, practice do-be-do-be-do regularly, be with God some of the time, and be in the ego some of the time, and let the dance generate creative acts of transformation, then I think we will hit a certain threshold and will be able to achieve very quickly the power of downward causation in unprecedented numbers. This is a threshold that will carry us towards making that fundamental step that these changes will take hold in all of humanity, not just a few of us.”
“The goal of the quantum activist is to explore quantum possibilities and manifest these archetypes—Good, Beauty, Truth, Justice, and Love—in his or her life as intimately and as expressly as one can, and in doing so to help transform the world. The means a quantum activist uses to achieve this goal are threefold—right thinking, right living, and right livelihood.”
“Right thinking consists of understanding the paradigm shift from a user’s point of view and helping others in our environment to do so. Right living consists of walking the talk, manifesting our understanding in how we live, and becoming guiding examples for the inspiration of others. As such it takes a lot of quantum leaps, openness to being in the nonlocality of God consciousness which informs the doing of the ego’s day to day activities;, and the desire to change hierarchical relationships into tangled ones. Right livelihood consists of earning our living in a way that is congruent with our modes of thinking and living and helping our entire society to achieve this congruence.”
“Our challenge is to go beyond ego to higher nonlocal consciousness and access creativity and transformation.”
“The Secret behind the Secret is that we must choose creatively in synchrony with quantum consciousness to manifest our intentions.”
Right Thinking and Right Living
Right thinking is having a worldview that is based upon the primacy of consciousness as the ground of all being. Quantum physics tells us that everything is based upon the movement of consciousness.
Right living is to be empowered by the right thinking. An important component of right living is what Dr. Goswami calls do-be-do-be-do. We have to relax within our activity instead of constantly focusing on doing: do, do, do. Instead, we also focus on being. When we focus on being, quantum possibilities proliferate. If you have more possibilities to choose from, then your chance of choosing a creative solution is greater. By combining doing and being in our pattern of living, we become more creative. We become more spiritual. We make more room for quantum leaps in consciousness. That is right living.

“Our life is what our thoughts make it. A man will find that as he alters his thoughts toward things and other people, things and other people will alter towards him.” ~ James Allen
Start With Yourself
If you want peace in the world, then be at peace with everyone in your life and everyone that you encounter – all of your family, coworkers, ex-spouses, even perceived enemies and people who have harmed you (see Choosing Power Over Pain).
If you want clean water and clear skies, then do everything you can to protect the environment and keep your own living environment clean.
Look at the glass as half full. Be optimistic. Choose to be happy. If you find yourself slipping into negative thoughts or a dark mood, catch yourself, and say: I choose to feel good now. Or, I choose to be happy now. Think of something that puts a smile on your face. Whistle. Sing a song.
Live your light. The more you shine your light, the more you will illuminate the way for others to see their own divine nature. The best way is to love and believe in yourself. There’s not anything that you need to go out and do. It’s about the state of being that you hold as you go through life and move through the world. It’s really very simple.
“Be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi
There is No Us Versus Them.
Our collective consciousness has created the problems of our world. You cannot solve the problems by fighting against anyone or anything. Avoid judging others as being wrong. And, never focus on what you don’t want. Simply, send out heart-felt intentions of what you do want. The Global Care Room in the Global Coherence Initiative (GCI) website is a great way to facilitate doing that. For more details, see “The Good News” section in the article Reclaim the Incredible Power that Has Been Taken From You.
Remember, there is only movement toward consciousness or away from consciousness.
“You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it. You must learn to see the world anew.” ~ Albert Einstein
“We are all connected to everyone and everything in the universe. Therefore, everything one does as an individual affects the whole. All thoughts, words, images, prayers, blessings, and deeds are listened to by all that is.” ~ Serge Kahili
Always Remember Others
We are all connected. When you hurt someone else (physically or emotionally) or hold grudges, you are hurting yourself.
So, forgive others. Rather than looking for faults in others, look for the good in them. Be kind and compassionate.
Also, be sure to include others in your heart-felt intentions.
“If you can stop for a moment and just give your awareness to elevating your consciousness and elevating the light within each individual as a unified whole collective, a unified oneness… If you can imagine the oneness of the universe filled with light, you can heal the world that you live in, heal your planet, and heal those that are under distress right now with tragedies that are happening in the world.” ~Simion (see How Can We Use Collective Consciousness to Change the World? – Simion Responds)
“A few of us will start this. I invite you to become a quantum activist with this resolution in mind: we can change ourselves and we can change the world simultaneously.” ~Dr. Amit Goswami, Ph.D.
