Most of our definitions of romantic love are constructs of love dictated to us through the use of media and our experiences from our childhood that defined love. Both of these ‘ideals’ are inaccurate and often have nothing to do with love at all, but are rather a reflection of our needs and wants in a relationship. Which is to say; that ‘love’ is what we feel we need reflected back to us through our significant ‘other’ or from any intimate relationship. We are actually ‘in love’ with an ideal of what we believe we can receive from another.
We tend to search for ‘love’ to be reflected back to us in all the wrong places hoping for our ‘ideal’ and then settling for not being alone. But what are we actually searching for? Continue reading →
Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Letting Go through Tough Love. This conversation begins with us discussing that most of us aren’t able to let go because we don’t see that we have a choice. We discussed why our Ego holds on to our fears and how we get really stuck if we go into the victim mentality. He helps us again to understand that our beliefs, intention and fears will effect whether we can let go or whether we let our egos take over. We moved into how our fears stop us from letting go of relationships again this is through our fears. Relationships all assist us to grow, however, if we get caught in victim mentality or falling in Need with someone instead of Unconditional Love we fail to learn our lessons. This is where his Tough Love comes in, Tom reminds us exactly why we enter relationships and how to BE in relationships and how to Grow Up. It is through our intention to Grow towards Love or just Grow Up that the larger consciousness system that will help us and we can come from a place of BEing instead of an intellectual understanding that has no effect on whether we Grow Up. The changes, our Growing towards Love, effect us from a BEing level and rarely work if they just come from ‘doing’ or a mental wish. Remember we are here to Grow towards Love not stay stuck in our fears! Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!
Usually when I think of fall, especially at the beginning of Sept, I think about new beginnings, learning and change. This year my thinking seems to be on Intimacy. I mentioned last month I’m participating in Emmanuel Dagher’s “Core Healing” and this past week the theme was on Divine Partners. The topic of intimacy came up and I believe due to the fact that today Venus enters Libra and Jupiter is transiting into Libra early this month (Sept 9th) the focus for many of us will be on relationships this fall and for the next year (romantic, friends and colleagues) as Jupiter will be in Libra till Oct 2017.
I love the word “Intimacy” as it brings up a series of thoughts and ideas; it is about ‘seeing me’. Do you remember the movie Avatar? The beautiful piece of that movie was their deep understanding of ‘seeing someone’ as they are; their inner essence. When it comes to creating intimacy with others, romantic and otherwise, we need to start with ourselves. Continue reading →
Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on Relationships from his up and coming book! He offers tips and tools to help us focus on authentic Love. We discuss that women and men are hard wired differently and what our genetic instincts are. We discuss that Romantic Love is often based on Fear and not Love at all! Tom has a brilliant way to simplify our world into love vs fear. We discuss how Love is about “others” not our own needs, and when to recognize our fears associated with Romantic Love, Ego and how we can shift our perceptions when we are feeling triggered by fear and focus on Love. Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!
I’ve been contemplating compromise in the grand scheme of our lives. We are taught that we should be “in service” to the world; that if we want to love it is about “giving”; and that our ego is “bad”. Then I reflected upon our dreams and desires, how we need to set intentions and be clear about what we want so the Universe can deliver our dreams, as long as we can let go and not try to control the outcome. I also considered relationships, which is really the only way we grow, so therefore, are probably one of the most important resources to develop. And finally, I pondered about what it means to focus outside ourselves instead of inside where the magic can happen. These thoughts all brought me to try and understand whether we compromise too much of who we are in life, so that we can follow the expectations of the world (spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally).

Tom Campbell began researching altered states of consciousness with Bob Monroe (Journeys Out Of The Body, Far Journeys, and The Ultimate Journey) at Monroe Laboratories in the early 1970s where he and a few others were instrumental in getting Monroe’s laboratory for the study of consciousness up and running. These early drug-free consciousness pioneers helped design experiments, developed the technology for creating specific altered states, and were the main subjects of study (guinea pigs) all at the same time. Campbell has been experimenting with, and exploring the subjective and objective mind ever since. For the past thirty years, Campbell has been focused on scientifically exploring the properties, boundaries, and abilities of consciousness.
During that same time period, he has excelled as a working scientist, a professional physicist dedicated to pushing back the frontiers of cutting edge technology, large-system simulation, technology development and integration, and complex system vulnerability and risk analysis. Presently, and for the past 20 years, he has been at the heart of developing US missile defense systems.
Tom is the “TC (physicist)” described in Bob Monroe’s second book Far Journeys and has been a serious explorer of the frontiers of reality, mind, consciousness, and psychic phenomena since the early 1970s. My Big TOE is a model of existence and reality that is based directly on Campbell’s scientific research and first hand experience. It represents the results and conclusions of thirty years of careful scientific exploration of the boundaries and contents of reality from both the physical and metaphysical viewpoints. The author has made every effort to approach his explorations without bias or preconceived notions. There is no belief system, dogma, creed, or unusual assumptions at the root of My Big TOE.
By demanding high quality repeatable, empirical, evidential data to separate what’s real (exists independently and externally) from what’s imaginary or illusory, Campbell has scientifically derived this general model of reality.
Synopsis of the My Big TOE Trilogy
My Big TOE, written by a nuclear physicist in the language of contemporary Western culture, unifies science and philosophy, physics and metaphysics, mind and matter, purpose and meaning, the normal and the paranormal. The entirety of human experience (mind, body, and spirit) including both our objective and subjective worlds, are brought together under one seamless scientific understanding.
If you have a logical, open, and inquisitive mind – an attitude of scientific pragmatism that appreciates the elegance of fundamental truth and the thrill of breakthrough – you will enjoy this journey of personal and scientific discovery.
Based upon careful scientific research and logical deduction, this is a book for all who have an interest in the nature of the reality in which they exist. My Big TOE is not only about scientific theory, function, process, and discovery – but also speaks to each individual reader about their innate capabilities. Readers will learn to appreciate that their human potential stretches far beyond the limitations of the physical universe.
This trilogy delivers the next major scientific conceptual breakthrough since relativity and quantum mechanics raised scientific eyebrows in the first half of the twentieth century. No catch, no megalomania, no hypothetical wackiness, no goofy beliefs, no unusual assumptions – just straightforward science that better describes the totality of our experience and provides a wealth of practical results and new understanding that can be applied personally and professionally by scientists and nonscientists alike. This is the real thing.
My Big TOE is about life, purpose, personal significance, physics, evolution, and the reason why. The acronym “TOE” is a standard term in the physics community that stands for “Theory Of Everything.” Such a theory has been the “Holy Grail” of physicists for more than fifty years. My Big TOE delivers the solution to that scientific quest at the layman’s level with precision and clarity. This book is an adventure into the overlapping worlds of science, philosophy, and metaphysics. It is tightly analytical and logical as all good works of science and philosophy should be, while at the same time down to earth, easily understandable, and full of good humor. No leaps of faith or beliefs of any sort are required to get to where these books will take you.
Campbell did not put the “My” in My Big TOE to flaunt pride of authorship. Nor does the “My” indicate any lack of generality or applicability to others. The “My” was added to be a constant reminder to you that this reality model cannot serve as your personal Big TOE until it is based upon your personal experience. On the other hand, personal or subjective experience is only one piece of the reality puzzle. In the objective physical world of traditional science, My Big TOE delivers a comprehensive model of reality that subsumes modern science, describes our objective material reality, and is universally applicable. Contemporary physics is shown to be a special case of a more general set of basic principles.

Aug 2015: Laurie Huston from News the Heart is talking with physicist Tom Campbell on the consciousness of our ‘Stories’. Tom has a brilliant way to simplify our world into love vs fear. He discusses how our ego is the reason we are so insecure and how love is about ‘gifting’ and has nothing to do with what we need or want. He also discusses how difficult it is to know our fears or our ‘beliefs’, what we can be conscious of is our ‘ego’. He offers some simple ways to recognize when we are in ego and fear and how to evolve towards ‘Love’. Join us for this fascinating discussion! We’re Getting to the Heart of what Matters!
Tom and I have done a few shows on Love and Relationship… women have been interested in how to help their partners to Raise their Consciousness and begin the type of relationship we have discussed. On our discussion after the show, Tom recommends first to connect with his work, helping us understand from a “left brain” mentality to view Saturday from his Calgary workshop on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Nlbro2MNBs (there are 3 videos over 2 hours) then the practical work on Sunday http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRar8IOwic8 (again 3 videos). And if you want a video discussion on relationships http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UKgYoZ26s80 (please note this should be last!! get an understanding first!)
