Past lives? Concurrent lives in different dimensions? Direct connection to all souls as Source?
There are many ways to look at our multiple lives, our distinct Human existences during which we move further along our path towards Understanding.
For many years, I’ve believed that I’ve lived an innumerable series of past lives, met a lot of the same souls, struggled to learn lessons and to overcome conflicts with the souls I interact with repeatedly. In the last few years, though, I’ve been introduced to other possibilities.
One is that I am Source: In other words, I am not a part of the Universal Whole, but the Whole itself. All of the souls with whom I interact are part of me and I of them. The connection is unbroken. This has some frightening aspects as it means that the Hitlers and Khomeinis and a whole slew of others who, to me, epitomize evil beyond belief are also a part of me.
One I learned of more recently involves multiple dimensions in which I exist simultaneously, and can, at least at times, share memories with. This one raises the obvious question: Can I move between those dimensions? And, if so, what happens when I do? Does the me in one dimension have to move if the me from another dimension decides to pop in for a visit? Can we occupy the same dimension at the same time?
Clearly, this possibility raises some very Heinlein-esque plot twists, if nothing else! If I do change dimensions do I drop in wearing nothing but a smile? Yikes!!!! Things might certainly get ugly, or at least require some fancy footwork and creative explaining under those circumstances!
OK, I admit that I’ve read far too much science fiction in my day, but I’ve reached a point, in the last few days, where I’m starting to question my beliefs on many levels.
The reality is, we as humans take a lot of things on faith. Whether it is our spiritual belief system, our trust in other human beings, or the reason we seem to remember things we don’t recall experiencing (deja vu anyone?). There are many things in which we believe without having actual, tangible proof of the existence or veracity of that belief.
That’s not to say, what we believe isn’t true, but we can’t prove it beyond a shadow of a doubt. Which makes it that much easier to question our own beliefs when presented with a viable option.
Unfortunately, questioning those seemingly rock solid beliefs has that unnerving effect of shaking the very foundation on which we stand.
Again, this is not a bad thing, necessarily. Rethinking our position from time to time ensures that we keep that foundation strong but flexible. Earthquake proof, as it were.
A tree that is allowed to stand completely still for a long period of time becomes very solid, nearly petrified over time. If suddenly, a gale force wind comes along, the tree has no flexibility and thus, can only snap in two rather than bend to allow the wind to pass.
Testing our beliefs to make sure they’re still valid ensures that they remain flexible, yet strong. Consideration of other possibilities can occur without damaging the underlying foundation. Realizing that as perceptions change, beliefs can evolve means that we don’t experience the effects of the Tower card I mentioned in a previous post, in which an entire structure has to be destroyed in order to rebuild on a clean base. Sure, in the past, I believed that this needed to be a door, but as I’ve learned more, I realize this can be just as effective as a window, while the door belongs where, once, there was a solid wall.
Or better still, walls, doors, windows are merely constructs our mind makes but all are made of energy and are really no more solid than the air. If we match our vibration to them, they can no longer keep us in…or out.
My mind, this week, is wandering outside of its traditional path, opening to possibilities previously unexplored, and finding that nothing is as it seemed any more. I’ve lost my certainty about the very basics of my belief system, and instead of feeling trepidation, I feel a heightened awareness and excited anticipation towards the new discoveries I’m going to be making. I am fired up about throwing all of the old rules out the energy space/window and redefining the most basic of concepts, then tossing them aside and redefining yet again!
The only absolute I have now is that there is no absolute, and that suits me just fine!
My gratitudes tonight are:
1. I am grateful for the freedom I feel at being able to toss everything aside and start all over.
2. I am grateful for new beginnings which could not even have been conceived of a month ago!
3. I am grateful for the energy I can see swirling in and around me, through and of all things.
4. I am grateful for a raising of my vibrational level, and that it occurred with no effort on my part.
5. I am grateful for everything in its own time and space.
Love and light
