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. Â 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. Â It has set off such a chain reaction of ideas and impressions, it just seems to go on and on. Â So many things that I have seen from one side or two sides before, and suddenly see from yet another side. Â Tying together things in new ways. Â Even when I disagree, it makes me look at the things I am convinced of, with new eyes. Â 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. Â Sure there are the occasional reference to Atlantis and Mu, and a pretty complex hierarchy of dimensions in the spirit world. Â 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. Â 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. Â But in this life, there are certainly many heavens and quite a few hells as well, inside people’s hearts. Â So I don’t really think of these things as abstract or theological. Â I think of them as everyday and psychological, rather.
This month has been a huge adventure for me. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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.
