An Ode to Dr. Amit Goswami

Without his vision, I might not know
Our universe is self-aware,
Or that consciousness is the bridge
Connecting possibility and actuality.

He challenged me to observe my thoughts,
But also intently listen to what I feel.
A loving bulldog in every way,
His undying will to blaze and mark new trails.

In our comfort zones, most of us remain–
Places safe, little threat to who we are.
But that’s not the way
To be the change in the world of quantum reality.

Not many men of science are so bold
To risk major rejection and assault.
That’s why a loving spirit is required
To not take so personal vengeful attacks.

Once we gaze through the visionary window,
We see a world filled with quantum possibilities.
Why not converse with your soul,
And gain its wisdom on what the future holds.

Most of all, his work reminds me of
Our amazing powers of co-creation.
And through the eyes of our soul,
We give shape to our destiny.

Note: Dr. Amit Goswami, a theoretical physicist by training, is a former professor of mine who made the world of quantum physics accessible to me. Dr. G is one of the world’s leading authorities on the scientific, medical and spiritual implications of quantum physics. I continue to follow his groundbreaking work.

  1. Hi Dan, thanks! I love the coincidences and synchronicities in life. They evidence that we really do live in a self-aware universe!.

  2. Coincidentally (or maybe not so), I just last night randomly pulled The Self-Aware Universe off my bookshelf & opened it randomly. This is what I read: “Etymologically, the word consciousness derives from scire (to know) and cum (with) [hold the jokes]. Consciousness is ‘to know with’.”

    Good to see all these new poems, Brother Don.
