Is it possible to understand everything?
Yes - but first we need to look at understanding in a different way. Most people seek to understand that which is outside of themselves. Such understanding, no matter how well researched or thought through, can ever understand everything. That is why the scientists searching for the Theory of Everything are bound to fail.
The secret to understanding everything is to understand the Self! That which is within. For this to happen we need to have a goal to serve society in some life enhancing way. This is important because we come to a point of understanding everything once we experience, in every moment, how what happens around us is a reflection of what lies with us. And this relationship of outer to inner, through the selfless service of an altruistic goal, becomes our pathway to universal understanding.
Once we really get this, not as an idea but as an experience, then by placing our attention on the unfolding of this relationship, the relationship between inner and outer, we gradually come into a timeless awareness of all that is.
In this awareness understanding everything is maintained not as a distant theory, but in the experience of synchronicities and wonders that pass through our life everyday with increasing frequency.
Such experiences, especially when they manifest as a continuous steam, dissolve the barrier between that which is inside and that which is outside, until eventually a point arises where, immersed in the present, such a barrier no longer exists. The inner and outer have become ONE.
This is the point of Total Understanding or Unitary Consciousness.
In 2000, after a profound spiritual awakening, Wallace wrote his book, Unfold Your Wings and Watch Life Take Off, a poetic manual that takes the hand of the reader and gently guides them toward a powerful realization of inner guidance.
