In this paper we suggested a natural interpretation of the de Broglie-Bohm quantum potential, as the energy due to the oscillating electromagnetic field (virtual photon) coupled with moving charged particle. Generalization of the Schrödinger equation is obtained. The wave function is shown to be the eigenfunction of the Sturm-Liouville problem in which we expand virtual photon to include it implicitly into consideration. It is shown that the non-locality of quantum mechanics is related only with virtual photon. As an example, the zero-energy of harmonic oscillator is obtained from classical equations.
