Look at the Sea. The sea is a system of waves. We see waves but in reality (facts) the sea is a system of small particles of water that are moving UP and DOWN, FORWARDS and BACKWARDS (a cycle). A wave is a Collective Experience. It is a representation of a System, a Field, a Whole.
Waves are bounded by the coast. The coast is a BOUNDARY. If the earth would be a system that only contains water, the water would move around the rotating globe of the earth (in a cycle) in a very simple cyclic pattern until the wave would meet itself. This simple pattern is determinated by the influence of the Moon (and The Sun). They are also in a cyclic motion.
Because of the boundaries waves interfere. The interference of the waves creates a new combined wave and the combined wave combines with other combined waves. This process goes on for ever.
Waves are moved by the WIND. Wind is a MOVEMENT (its main mover is the Sun). Air is moving UP en DOWN, FORWARDS and BACKWARDS (a cycle). Air contains many particles (also water-particles) and is another collective experience. It is again a representation of a System, a Field, a Whole
Without wind the waves calm down and the sea is tranquille (Flat). All the turbulence is gone. Sometimes we like a turbulent sea and sometimes we like a tranquille sea. It depends on our MOOD, our Emotion. Our emotion changes and it looks for RESONANCE. One field (the human being) resonates with another field (The Sea). Another Field (The wind) resonates with the Sea.
Perhaps now you understand why the original meaning of the term emotion is movement (Latin, movere). A human being is a moving field (an Emotion) that is connected to a memory.
Resonance is comparable with the term “look-a-like” or the statement “being on the same wavelength”. We resonate (feel in harmony with) something that feels like our own wave pattern. We are constantly (!) seeking for this feeling called Love, Friendship, Compassion. We are not alone in the universe. Other fields (called environment) are creating an interference.
People change because their environment (their context) changes. We communicate (speak sentences) about this with others to understand our selves.
We need the feeling of constancy (harmony, balance) and Constancy is WHAT WE ARE and WANT TO BE. Without the feeling of constancy we are lost. We will go totally mad if we can’t find any pattern in our history that is stored in our memory.
We create and (recreate) a story (a pattern) of our life that suits our purpose. Our purpose is also a pattern we create out of our memory. Purpose is a positive or negative expectation of the future. We expect things to go good or bad.
So I hope you understand (feel the resonance) that looking at the world with a FIELD-spectacle creates new opportunities. The most interesting opportunity is that we can accomplish Harmony by creating a resonating Whole (a field).
