Simultaneous Parallel Existence
Just about the time when much of humankind has managed to entertain, with some degree of comfort, the concept of Reincarnation—along comes our own personal Counsel of Reconnections to offer a more expanded, and somewhat more intimidating, form of that same idea.
One of Spirit’s first messages to me, and the stimulus for much growth and personal examination, was the simple phrase "You are more than you think you are." In contrast, the basic premise of Reincarnation has always been "You were more than you thought you *were.*"
It only makes sense that Spirit would choose to introduce these new ideas to the Mass Mind in an incremental fashion, gradually acclimating us to the Greater Presence that exists just beyond the Veil of Forgetfulness which surrounds our conscious mind. In this way, there can be a gentle awakening of the higher senses, and an avoidance of trauma such as was experienced in Atlantis or Lemuria as they attempted to integrate higher knowledge too soon and without adequate inner preparation.
Following is a "free flow" of ideas which I am bringing through, concerning the whole issue of Multidimensionality. Enjoy.
Multidimensionality is real, and it is happening *now.* Knowing about it does not make it happen, and not knowing about it does not prevent it from continuing upon its infinite course of exploration.
Pandora’s Box. ‘Twas originally a gift of wonders, but it was also believed to have unleashed chaos and eventual destruction to those who dared to open it and look inside. Dare we to look inside ourselves?
The Veil of Forgetfulness is a semi-permeable membrane which surrounds the consciousness of a single Soul Fragment, lest he (or she) should remember his connections to All That Is, and lose his focus within the context of reality that he has chosen to visit.
We are our OWN form of Pandora’s Box. Our limited concepts of who we are and why we exist are our shelter, our comfort from the torrent of feelings we might experience if we opened fully to see what is there inside.
An Individual Soul Fragment is a specific replication of a single idea that is exploring its many ramifications within the spectrum of possible/probable beingness. It is a piece of a greater puzzle that also carries a whole personal saga within the jagged edges of its form. Fit together within a larger picture, the piece does not lose this original significance. Rather, it gains additional significance because of its role within the bigger picture.
One possibility which is explored in physical form becomes a stone that is dropped into the waters of All That Is. Each possible variation of that same idea goes out like a ripple from the original expression. Each ripple becomes a universe unto itself, though it also bears meaning within a larger picture as well!
Knowledge is like fine wine. Are we ready to stop drinking from the Ripple, and start tasting of the wine of an even Higher Self?
The Multiverse could be seen in many ways. In your computer jargon, it could be seen as an Infinite Spreadsheet, exploring all the possible/probable manifestations of what has been, what is, and what could ever be. Each "cell" of the Spreadsheet is a universe unto itself, complete and whole. Locked inside its "cell," it is happily oblivious to all the similar "cellves" that co-exist just beyond the Veil.
The Imagination is a buffer zone that separates the physical/emotional self from his or her mental/spiritual connections with the rest of All That Is. If one is not ready to explore the endless possibilities, he will surround himself with cynicism, and claim "It is all *just* in my imagination." This will insulate him from the knowing. Then, when you are ready to journey further, he will change his statement to something like: "It is right here, *just beyond* (and through) my Imagination." At that moment, a door will open to him and he will begin to believe.
Physical Reality is a crystalization of focus that is achieved from within a single viewpoint. The density of any manifestation is contingent upon how solidifed or explicit that idea must become before the observer is willing to believe in it.
There are no ideas or manifestations that are inherently "dense" or which are inherently "celestial." All ideas, concepts, essences, and fragments of beingness are emanated from the same energy that binds together the Center of All That Is. However, each observer (traveler in time and space) varies the vibrational frequency of any idea to the degree that he (or she) desires to examine or experience it.
HERE is often experienced as solidified matter. THERE is often held to be etheric and remote. However, when HERE eventually becomes THERE, the density seems to change. The memory of HERE becomes the snapshot of THERE and the solidification factor reverses. Or does it? Is it real or is it Memorex?????
In truth, My Dear Friends, it is BOTH.
ALL SOUL’S NIGHT
Midnight has come, and the great Christ Church Bell
And many a lesser bell sound through the room;
And it is All Souls’ Night,
And two long glasses brimmed with muscatel
Bubble upon the table. A ghost may come;
For it is a ghost’s right,
His element is so fine
Being sharpened by his death,
To drink from the wine-breath
While our gross palates drink from the whole wine.
In truth, both HERE and THERE exist simultaneously. Time is illusion, an initiation of the conscious mind to place a single particle of Is-ness upon a slide and place it under the microscope of the NOW.
What appears as a "ghost" to us in one physical context, is also a fully solidified physical person who is living within another dimension. Just as "ghosts" appear upon a television screen, they also appear within perceptual reality as well! However, each "program" continues regardless of what the audience experiences. Everything IS, because Oneness IS.
By installing a "there" and a "then" to our Now, we give it form and texture. The elements of past and future become the frame around the portrait of the Now which we are painting. If we like, we could change the frame and thus alter the picture. Such an action would not make it any more or any less "real." It would simply add a new dimension to our experience of that idea.
THE PRESENT IS NOT THE PRODUCT OF THE PAST! Rather, the past is ordained to be real and made meaningful within each present moment that examines it.
Every NOW is created, 100% in the NOW. The illusion of continuity is a magician’s trick! Go ahead, allow yourself to be fooled by it! Have a wonderful time! But then, when the show is over, feel free to set aside your props. At such a time, there is nothing left to do but come HOME……..and return to the Oneness of All That Is.
