David Bohm on Coherence and Consciousness:
If we can have a coherent approach to reality, then reality will respond coherently to us.
But nature has been tremendously affected by our way of thinking. There is very little left on earth, that isn’t affected by how we were thinking.
The major source of unhappiness is that we are incoherent and therefore produce results that we don’t really want. And then, trying to overcome them, we keep on producing them.
We need a period of emptiness and quiet where we can go into this.
Wholeness will arise between us all, in participation rather than separation. We are internally, not externally, related to everything by consciousness. Consciousness is an internal relationship to the whole.
