Meta about Happy Science


This screenshot from the animated movie “The Laws of Eternity” actually describes pretty well how it feels for me: An endless cascade of bright chain reactions.  The picture is of the Sixth Dimension, which I suspect you may hear more about.

I know you folks must be more than fed up with me talking about this Japanese sect already. And probably more than a little worried about me, if you know me at all but don’t know me really really well.

But for me it has been a fantastic experience, and still is.  It has set off such a chain reaction of ideas and impressions, it just seems to go on and on.  So many things that I have seen from one side or two sides before, and suddenly see from yet another side.  Tying together things in new ways.  Even when I disagree, it makes me look at the things I am convinced of, with new eyes.  Not just what I believe, but why I believe it. Or not, as the case may sometimes be.

A big part of it is that Happy Science is actually quite down to earth.  Sure there are the occasional reference to Atlantis and Mu, and a pretty complex hierarchy of dimensions in the spirit world.  But the latter is just as easily seen as spiritual distinctions in this life. Like me, Okawa seems convinced that the next life starts in this life.  I would actually say that this life is the only life I can remember, so I hesitate to speak with any authority about the next.  But in this life, there are certainly many heavens and quite a few hells as well, inside people’s hearts.  So I don’t really think of these things as abstract or theological.  I think of them as everyday and psychological, rather.

This month has been a huge adventure for me.  I still don’t know exactly what will come of it, but being so full of ideas and associations is something I haven’t felt in a long time.  And I have had quite a lot of input over the last few years, from the right-wing mysticism of Robert Godwin to the high-tech mysticism of Holosync and LifeFlow, not to mention Spiral Dynamics and Integral theory and practice.  It really is as if there is this huge puzzle that I have seen in outline but now there are more pieces coming together than I have time to put into place before I forget them again.

I have written a number of entires that I have for various reasons not published, usually because I felt that I could not quite complete them.  And there are others that are still in my head, and some that I am not sure whether I have written or not – I would have to read through the last month plus files on my hard disk to say for sure.

I wish I could convey my excitement – and I mean that in a good way, this time – but I’m not very good at that.  So you’ll just have to take my word for it. And I, in the meantime, will try to write something else in between. Now and then.
