This explanation of our other selves, those that comprise our multidimensionality, sheds much light on how we operate as a result of what we were in the past. At the same time, something which we might do here and now can change the outcome of something in a past life. That's fairly deep. Bashar said that the vibration of our future self is affecting what we do today. Pretty compelling stuff, and something I think about often; me, 300 years from now, is creating the me here alive on the Earth in 2014. Just the sensibility of that is enough to keep our meditation charged for quite some time.
A meme on Facebook today read, "You're always haunted by the idea you're wasting your life." Why is that, I thought. Then I listened to this video, and what occurred to me was that we are so much more than that which we perceive in our body in 3D existence. Limitless beyond the confines of mind/emotion/ego, we become frustrated when we can't get there. We push, we pull, we retreat, we indulge, over do it, over compensate, over think...because inherently we know we are more, and yet we can only put so much into this small physical vessel. We innately understand there is more to us - there MUST be, but we can't seem to reach it, that elusive largeness of our all-that-we-are.
Many of us are not wasting our lives - in fact, no one is, if we ascribe to the idea that we are all here for a very specific reason and we walk our path with all the perfection that we hold at any given moment. Saying that we are wasting our lives is a judgement call, but it was not meant in that way. It was meant to illuminate that dull ache we all have to be at complete peace with our lives, which can sometimes be conceived of as miniscule. Again, we know we are part of a bigger picture - we know we have funneled our magnanimous Being-ness into the 3D paradigm for the sake of finding a comfortable spot that would not become overwhelmed. We don't strive for perfection so much, perhaps, as we strive for recognition within this sphere of the Whole for the very reason that we are greater than this humanness. Ambition, ego, competitiveness, etc. all find a common explanation in our effort toward self-preservation. But maybe not. Maybe these characteristics are the outcome of our determination to break through to the other side, regardless of operating at a handicap, regardless of the appearance of limited physicality.
Which brings us back to the point that nothing is ever lost nor is anything wrong - each one of us is influenced by the path we have been walking and continue to walk. Mine is as unique to me as yours is to you. So what to judge? Or misunderstand? Or be in conflict with? Understanding that we are multidimensional is, I feel, crucial to finally enjoying this path - we suddenly have so much more to draw from. Just like that, the burden is lifted and I can refer to another one of my selves for guidance or knowledge, with full assurance that the other will respond. Finally, a reasoned explanation for spiritual solipsism! -S.C.-
