We all live in a vast multidimensional universe. Feel into your multidimensional nature. You connect with space and time in a particular way but also transcend it: You are here at a specific location yet you are present in many other locations. You are here in this time yet you are present in multiple times. Awakening, in part, is gaining an awareness of your vast nature. It is a paradox that when you come fully into the present moment, you become present in your multidimensionality.
The earth itself is a vast being that exists multidimensionally. There are facets to the earth that most human beings are not consciously aware of. However, if they were absent, the structure upon which rests everything you know would be gone.
Perhaps you are beginning to sense the earth’s depth, breadth, and height in new ways — you feel it speaking to you. You feel that you yourself are walking in more dimensions than your conscious mind can fathom. This does not in any way belittle your ordinary day-to-day existence. In fact, it exalts your everyday existence because it illuminates the fact that there is so much more to it. Every little thing is rich with meaning and importance. One can live what appears to be a mundane life doing ordinary tasks, but with a consciousness of multidimensionality, it is a beautiful experience.
One aspect of choice is what you do; another is how you do it. Many, for the moment at least, find it necessary to do work that is not what they would prefer. Perhaps eventually they can find a way to do something more to their liking. But in the meantime if they make the choice to be more present to whatever it is they are doing, if they open up their feelers to all the other things going on, they will have a richer experience even in a limited circumstance.
It is common for people to get into repetitive patterns in their lives and relationships. Boredom can set in, but it is not necessarily the fault of the relationships or the other people. If you let go of your preconceptions about them and feel into their multidimensionality, you will see them anew. You can have a new experience with people you have been engaging with for a long time.
I feel very tied to the earth and not able to see other dimensions. I haven’t had any experiential knowledge of anything other than here, and I’d like that.
You are actually a lot more plugged in to the multiverse than you realize. We recommend that you feel into it rather than approach it intellectually. Notice what is going on at the edges of your perception and be curious about them. “What am I feeling over here?” Let yourself ask questions about that and go a little deeper into it. If you do that, you will find that there has always been more there than you were engaging. Work with sensation through your body, asking it to take you into larger dimensions. Let your body lead and your mind follow. A good meditation for you would be to smell a flower and see where the scent takes you, what it opens in you. The multidimensional universe is present and you are part of it — you are already having an expanded experience. You simply need to consciously connect with it.
Your essence is your eternal nature. Some assume that if you are in essence consciousness, you will not be a very practical person — you will float on a cloud. That may be a temporary stage you go through as you disconnect from old habitual consciousness. There may be a period of reaching for the eternal at the expense of the mundane. But finally, if you follow the stages through to their fruition, you will merge consciousness of the mundane with consciousness of the eternal, and discover that they are the same thing. You were eternal all the time but didn’t realize it. Yes, of course, your body is aging, but the one looking out through your eyes is beyond time and space. The key to happiness is to realize who you are. You are at once a mundane and eternal being.
You choose to inhabit your temporal body because you are interested in the experiences they bring you. You can explore realities that are valid parts of the multidimensional universe through this fascinating vehicle. Of course, there is much difficulty in human civilization, especially at this time, and consciousness has been quite low for a long time. But even that interested you. It is not that you are a glutton for punishment. It is that as a multidimensional being, you saw underneath the difficulties into all that could be discovered about love.
When you delve deeply into what appears to be the absence of love, you find love. When you explore pain deeply enough, you find bliss. Finally, as you awaken you realize that you didn’t need to create pain to find bliss, but you also realize that pain was never what it seemed to be. Pain is ultimately always growing pain. You took on these limited bodies with limited consciousness, and as you emerge, like a mushroom growing out of a crack in a cement sidewalk, you explode the limitations. You re-emerge with greater awareness than ever before of who you are.
The goal was never to get away from the earth. The goal has always been to emerge through the earth. It is true that as you progress through the stages, you move closer to oneness with the Source. But you do this in order to have different vantage points from which to view reality. At a certain point on the physical plane, you experience the illusion of as much separateness as is possible in the universe. This is a valuable tool. As you then progress back into oneness, you keep getting a different view. Let’s say you are climbing a mountain: it is exertion, but at each step you get a different view, and each view illuminates what reality is in a different way. At any point you can choose to remember that you are the whole mountain and that all views are true. The very moment you awake to this reality, you are exalted. At the same time, you are working on refining your experience of physicality in various ways — there is a wide range of opportunities for interesting explorations.
All your trials on the physical plane are in fact intensely interesting to you. As soon as you consciously approach them that way, they cease to limit your reality. You realize that you are eternal in this very moment. If your body could benefit from some improvements, if your mind and emotions need some healing, you approach it as an eternal being who is doing some very interesting work. It becomes less difficult because you realize that you are much larger than whatever problems confront you. You can afford to relax and simply observe these situations that call upon your creativity. If you did not have problems to solve, being here would not be as interesting to you. Problems are oppressive when they are seen as larger than you, but as you remember your eternal nature, problems are never larger than you are; they are intriguing challenges. Magicians such as Harry Houdini would voluntarily put themselves in confining situations and try to figure a way out. Some people do difficult athletic tasks when they could, if they wished, stay home in their easy chair.
If you remember that you have taken on what you have because it interested you, it will change everything for you. You will begin to see a world full of eternal souls who are doing interesting things. What others are doing may not interest you. For example, some people are interested in war. You probably look at that and say, “Been there, done that.” But they are doing what they choose to do. It is possible that as more people become aware of their eternal nature, a critical mass will realize that it would be more interesting now to grow through joy rather than pain.
Growing through joy increasingly interests those on the spiritual path. There is nothing particularly wrong with the paradigm of growing through pain — that was interesting as well. It illuminated all sorts of truths for you, but as with war, you’ve been there and done that, and you are beginning to be more interested in joy and pleasure — the easier way. This is the primary paradigm shift occurring in humanity now. If you could personify humanity as one person, it is like someone who has been banging his head against a brick wall suddenly deciding it that might be more pleasant to open a door.
Ask to show yourself what would be most interesting, expansive, and illuminating for you to explore next in your life.
