Morphogenic Fields (Chapter 2)

Morphogenic Fields:  A Reflection

In this chapter, Judy writes “A difficulty we experience, however, is that the universe story is simply too big for us to hold and we need something a bit smaller to help us touch all the immensity in a way that allows us to respond in tangible ways.”

She also writes “We have been able to see that a new morphogenic field characterized by compassion is emerging.”  And, “it is in the implementation of the fundamental characteristics of the field that there is great work to be done.  The new consciousness is already here.”

So, what is the field and how can we help with the work, the implementation of building a field of compassion.

Judy uses the example of a magnet.  Just as a magnet has a field around it, that influences the materials around it,  so we have a field of influence around us.  Everything has.   It’s called morphogenic field. Our Morphogenic field is energy composed of information, habits and memories. The field strengthens as the number of participants increase.

Wherever we are, or whatever we do, we carry this field with us and it is detectable by the people around us. We actually exchange energy.  They may not be aware of it, but they are influenced by it.

As I reflect upon this, I want to know what I can do, how can I use this to influence the field of compassion.  I believe my every thought, word, deed,and my feelings contributes to this morphogenic field.  This with the fact that I can think, reason, reflect, make choices means that moment by moment, choice by choice, I can strengthen the morphogenic field of love, compassion and forgiveness thus strengthening the web connectedness all over our planet.

I will end with Judy’s words: “When each of us vibrates love and compassion, our energy mysteriously unites with the energy of love and compassion all over the planet, building a field of compassion, making a very powerful force for transformation and healing…..Could there be any greater cause for hope in the community?”

This weeks action plan is to remember that we contribute to the field  by our choices and our thoughts and the energy people detect coming from each one of us.

This reflection is a we  experience, thanks to all for their input. I especially want to thank Bridget Pritchard of the UK for her insight to this weeks reading and I am interested in all of your insights.

The following is a poem that believe makes a positive contribution to the field.

    I just finished reading the second chapter of Judy’s book: Morphogenic Fields. I’m familiar with the work of scientist Rupert Sheldrake and his “fields”. Judy, however, brings a fresh and Christian perpective to this more or less scientific idea! The theory of morphogenic fields is also, I believe, expressed by Teilhard de Chardin’s “Noospere”. His is not only a field of compassion but a field of the accumulated evolving wisdom of humankind. Can anyone comment on this similarity? Thanks Phil, for this blog!

    After learning more about Teilhard I noticed incredible similarities between Judy’s writing and Teilhard’s teachings. His book, The Phenomenon of Man, was an attempt at reconciling his religious faith with his academic interests and similarly Judy expresses this relationship of faith and science as well. Teilhard wrote, ” everything is the sum of the past” and ” nothing is comprehensible except through its history.” Judy believed that we all understand our lives, past, present, and future, through stories that guide our cultures. A connection that particularly stood out to me was that Teilhard points to the societal problems of isolation and marginalization as huge inhibitors of evolution especially since evolution requires a unification of consciousness just like Judy’s field of compassion.

    I hope to start to be more aware of the energy I release and to be a positive influence on the morphogenic fields I am apart of.

      If Teilhard is correct that isolation and marginalization are huge inhibitors of evolution what does that say about the “social media age” we’re now transversing? Social dynamics are going to change so drastically with less and less real face to face interaction takes place. Will evolution actually be slowed down rather than gain ground? Or will people a couple of generations from now begin to long for something they weren’t engaged in, and lay down their technical devices for the face to face dynamics again? I wonder.

    I too have wondered about impact of electronic communication for it certainly does not have the energy component of physical presence. And definitely have witnessed destructiveness of people who seem to become addicted to electronic communication – their personal relationships fall by the wayside. Their isolation inpedes the evolution process.

  4. What struck me in this chapter was Judy’s emphasis on freedom – freedom to choose the energy we put into the field, and the energy we draw from the field. This is liberating as well as a responsibility. Although we can’t control everything, we have the freedom to choose our reactions as well.

    Tomorrow, October 16, 2011, the memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King will be dedicated. Among the inscriptions sculpted in the granite of this memorial is this quote: “If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalities must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective.” (24 December 1967, Atlanta, GA)
    Judy wrote: “It is my conviction that we can and must participate consciously in strengthening the morphogenic field of new consciousness that has emerged.” (p. 38)
    For me these two are leading us to the same awareness and to our call to participate in the on-going emergence.

    I believe that we each do leave our energy upon the greater universe that is both around us, and within us. Cannot have one without the other. Peace.
