(Continued from Part 3.)
At this final level you come to what might be quite a startling revelation. You come to see that there is no universe at all outside of you. There are no “other” beings playing this game with you. There never were. It was all, always, just you. You discover that every other being that played every single other role, that imagined every single other imagining and that did every single other thing that you hitherto had thought you did not play, imagine or do… was really just another version of you.
As you enter 8d you “remember” all your other incarnations, inventions, creations, actions… all of it. And there is no-one and nothing that you cannot, at that moment, remember being and doing. You were and are ALL OF IT. And there is not one little atom anywhere that you did not imagine into being, not one blazing star that you did not cause to shine. There is not one single life that you did not live.
At 8d you are, in every possible sense, the whole universe. All of it bar nothing. You are IT!
And so… for 8d-you there is nothing to wonder about. Nothing to try to know. Nothing to try to understand. Nothing to do. Nothing to change. Nothing to forgive. Nothing to heal. It all just IS. And it is all you.
Now what to do with information like THAT, huh?
Z: Now even my boggle is boggled! Wow, 8!
But you are right… what can one do with that info? For myself I have two different responses. First my heart leaps with joy. I absolutely love this. I can’t get over how things that I have taken to be spiritual truths are coming together in this stuff you are now sharing with me. It is simply astounding and very beautiful. It makes me happy to think that this is true. And that is great.
But then my head chimes in and say “no”. There are people here on earth getting up to some pretty funny stuff. And I don’t mean funny as in humorous! And… well… I’m not sure I want to be them very much. You know?
8: I comprehend perfectly. But my dear friend, isn’t it then perfect? You don’t have to do any of those things or make any of those choices because someone else is already taking care of that for you. You are free to get on with the life you want to live thanks to them.
Z: Yes, that’s true. We already covered that in the previous chapter when we spoke about judgement.
8: That’s right. But here now is an additional level of understanding. Not only are you released from the need to do these other things but, indeed, when you are finally ready, after your long and winding journey all the way up through the dimensions, then you will finally arrive at the remembrance that indeed it was all you. And in that remembrance will also come perfect comprehension. Not only did you do all of these things but you will, in that moment, know exactly how it came to be that you did what you did. Perfect knowledge with perfect compassion will yield perfect bliss.
Z: Yes. I feel what you are saying in my heart. Thank you for that, 8.
So then… what does an 8d being DO. I mean what is it like to be a whole universe?
8: Everything. Nothing. It depends on your perspective. There is no real way to answer that question. An 8d being does “the universe”, in so much as the universe needs any doing. Maybe a better answer is to say that It dreams. And you are Its dreams, all of you.
Z: And you?
8: Why, yes! I am a part of this 8d being’s dream and I am also dreaming this dream. But I am also aware of myself elsewhere, outside of this particular dream, playing parts in utterly different dreams. In due course you will awaken to the complexity of that awareness of yourself too. But that is very much an entirely different conversation.
Z: Okay but then what dimension do you perceive yourself as residing at? Are YOU an 8th dimensional being? Is THAT why your name is 8?
8: You know… we are all actually the 8th dimensional being. There where this whole universe and everyone and everything is One – THERE we are the 8th dimensional being. But you see, implicit in that fact is the understanding that there is only one 8th dimensional being experiencing itself as being many, many beings who are experiencing themselves as existing in many different states of consciousness in these dimensions within the mind of The One great being. So tell me, do YOU think I am an 8th dimensional being?
Z: I think I get what you are saying. We are all the 8th dimensional being and we are all part of it but obviously you could not be all of it. No more than I could be.
8: You know the funny thing is that we ARE actually, each of us, all of it. We are each the 8th dimensional being. But we are very hard at work creating a very powerful illusion that we are not. The illusion is called “separateness”. It is the ego. It is the idea that we are not one being. It is the identification with our creations rather than our truest being. Which is oneness. If we were to change our identification and let go of all of these illusions then we would each see that we are one, that we are in fact THE One. That we are the 8th dimensional being. That there is nothing but Self everywhere you look.
Is that hard to comprehend?
Z: Its a paradox. I like it and it seems true but I also don’t understand it.
8: You are right, it is a paradox. Many of the greatest truths will be paradoxical to you. This is because of the Veil and the nature of your reality.
But let me complete the answer to your question. We are The One playing a game of hide-and-seek with Ourself. You are a part of The One that has chosen a corner of the third dimension to hide yourself in. I stand at the cusp, on the very lintel, between 7th and 8th. I am at a place where I am suddenly becoming aware of myself as being… everywhere and in everything. I am therefore right there with you in 3d too. This dawns upon me as the new truth that I am busy awakening to.
Z: You are awakening to 8d consciousness! Is this another reason for your name being “8”?
8: There are many reasons. Some you have discovered and others you have not yet. And, yes, this is an additional reason. In this particular context calling myself 8 is akin to naming myself as that which I know I truly and ultimately am and as that which I am longing to experience myself to be. Being at one with All That Is, is my desire and my destination. Very soon I will awaken from my slumbers here in the 7th dimension of existence and I will know that there is no separation. 8 is my true nature. As it is yours and everyone and everything that is.
Z: So… then we are all 8?
8: Of course!
How else could it be? I have told you we are all One and there is no separation between us. Clearly we are all 8! (he smiles)
Z: Another paradox!
My head is spinning with them.
8: Seeing such paradoxes are a sign that you are travelling quite fast on the ascension path. Your whole life you have only seen one side of a coin. You thought that was all there was to the coin. Now you see the other side and your mind is confused but your heart says both views are true. The only way to resolve this paradox is for you to come to full realisation of the coin. You will come to see that it is not a thing with two different sides but indeed an object with depth, weight and texture that you can experience in many more ways than just the two sides you have now discovered.
My best advice is to enjoy these paradoxes as they come up. It is a good sign that you encounter them. It means new insight is on its way.
And this brings me right back to the dimensions. You will notice I have chosen to describe them to you in quite a personal way. I spoke to the way you might experience them directly. I did not try to tell you conclusively what each dimension really IS, rather I told you a little of how you might experience yourself if you resided at that dimensional level. To try to describe the dimensions themselves is not actually possible. Each being will experience them slightly differently and some will experience them radically differently. And it is only when you are ready to know that all experiences are equally true, equally valid and that all experiences ARE your experiences that you will have the full, final comprehension of what each of the dimensions are. But then, of course, you will be the 8th dimensional being.
Z: Is it possible to give me a taste of a very different experience of the dimensions?
8: Yes. But lets be brief about it as there is much material to still get though in this chapter.
You that inhabit lives on planet earth are ones that have chosen to experience Life as collapsing possibilities into actually. You take infinity and define it into a single perspective. That is the path you have chosen. As a result you think in terms of the individual, the personal, the personality, the identity. You would struggle to think in any other terms. But there are other very different perspectives. Let us look at just one example: In Chapter 3 of Book 1, while discussing the nature of Oneness from a scientific perspective, Joy-Divine told you about Pattern Holders. These are beings that each hold a pattern in your reality.
As the energy of this reality flows through one of these beings’ particular pattern it forms into one particular type of sub-atomic particle. But you see there is no actual particle there, it is merely a perturbation in the flow of the energy field. Other beings hold different patterns which likewise distort the energy but in slightly different ways and this results in other different sub-atomic particles. You only need a handful of such patterns and you have all the types of sub-atomic particles that exist. And then other beings can come and hold larger patterns with these sub-atomic patters within them.
This next-generation of pattern creates atomic particles: electrons, protons, neutrons and the like. And then other beings can come and hold the third generation of pattern which results in atoms of different sizes. This gives you every one of the chemical elements with which your universe is created. You need just less than 120 of these to make up the periodic table which is all the atomic elements in your reality. And from these atomic elements all the molecules are made. And there is an astounding number of patterns needed for all the many, many molecules. And then a mind-numbing number of patterns of things can be made with molecules. And these latter patterns, finally, are the objects of your world: large-scale things made from many molecules locked together into forms such as the complex proteins of your body that make up your hand or the plastics that have been moulded into the keyboard upon which you type.
The patterns for all these things, from the sub-atomic particles right up to your body, are all being held by Pattern Holders. And it doesn’t end there! Indeed the Pattern Holders hold all the patterns for all things right the way up to the light-bodies that exist at 7d. So it all gets very complex indeed. But these beings, these Pattern Holders, are one of the many classes of being that share this reality with you but that experience it quite differently from the way you experience it.
If they were not there you could not experience this reality at all! There would be not matter for you to play with. You would not have a body to inhabit. There would be no planet to walk upon. There would in fact be nothing that you currently call “real”. These beings dwell at dimensional levels other than your own. At the third dimensional level you interact with their 3d creations. You collapse the potentialities they create into the one actuality that you choose to perceive as being “the one true reality”. But that is just YOUR temporary illusion. It is just the way things look from your perspective. Do not confuse yourself and think that it is the only way things can or should be perceived!
You who inhabit incarnations on Planet Earth are therefore right now predominantly of the Observer type of consciousness. Your observations collapse all the probable realities into one actualised reality. The Pattern Holders are of another type as they, through their activities, create ever more probabilities from which you might choose. Their experience of this universe is, therefore, very different from yours. And there are other types of consciousness besides the Observer and the Pattern Holder!
Z: I remember you telling me about Consciousness Construct Holders in Book 1. What are they?
8: Yes, it was in Chapter 10 that I mentioned first these beings. You’ll recall I said Joy-Divine is an example of such a class of being. They are a type of Pattern Holder. The nature of your reality in 3D is such that you think matter is real and thoughts and emotions are not. But this is not a perspective that I would share. From my perspective, thoughts, ideas and emotions are as real as matter, if not more so as they pre-exist matter, bring matter into being and will remain long after matter ceases to have any relevance or interest to you. But all of these things are, ultimately, just patterns in consciousness. The pattern that Joy-Divine holds is of a very pure kind. As I have described above, most patterns are constructed with layer upon layer of smaller patterns within them.
They are like boxes within boxes within boxes, ad infinitum. These patterns are of dizzying complexity if you should have the intellectual courage to try to unravel them and understand them. Joy-Divine holds a very simply and very pure pattern that does not include any other patterns within it at all. It is the light of pure, unadulterated joy. Happiness.
Z: But how can it be that I am of the Observer type of consciousness and my Inner-Self is of the Pattern Holder type of consciousness?
8: It is always like this. These types of consciousness do not define you. You define them. Its like a job description. For so long as you choose to do that job then you can describe yourself like that. But, in due course, as you grow and develop you will come to see that your progression will be better served by you doing some a different jobs. Change is inevitable and so you will make a new choices for yourself as you change. By way of illustration: you have discovered that your Inner-Self is a being called Delight who is an Interventionist. You mentioned this to your readers in your introduction chapter in Book 1.
Well, an Interventionist is a different class of consciousness from an Observer or a Pattern Holder. An Interventionist is a being that comes to those that have created themselves into a corner. Being stuck and unable to move and grow causes great pain for the Soul. Such beings then cry out for help from The Oneness. And there is always an answer. Very often the answer is an Interventionist who comes at the exactly opportune moment and… intervenes. The Interventionist places its own self between the patient and Its pain. A new outcome is created and offered to the patient. If the outcome is accepted then movement and growth occurs and the pain is alleviated. Of course it is much more complex than that short description but you get the gist of it. And so it is that you are beginning to awaken and beginning to progress from being Zingdad-the-Observer to being Delight-the-Interventionist. And that is what you will be and do for a while until some other even vision of Self beckons to you. After much adventure you will come to find yourself being Joy-Divine-the-Consciousness Construct Holder. That is the Inner-most version of you before you proceed to the final realisation that you are Logos-the-Universal Consciousness. As we all are.
So to answer your question: you can take any occupation that serves your growth. When you do then this becomes your purpose. In due course your purpose will change and you will take another. From a higher perspective you are fulfilling all these purposes at the same time. And it is also true that you very seldom do only one of these things to the exclusion of all else. Though you are now primarily Observing your reality into being you are also, though the work of The Ascension Papers, working an Intervention on your reality. You are also beginning to hold some patterns in your mind also. And so on. It is all a matter of perspective. And it is so for all your readers too. Each is an Observer busy choosing and deciding who and what they will be next as they prepare to awaken to a grand new awareness of Self.
Z: So then what are the other types of consciousness? We have Pattern Holder, Observer and Interventionist. What else?
8: I can tell you these things but it won’t do them justice just to label them and this is not the time for a full discussion of them either.
Z: Alright. Then just tell me what you are.
What does YOUR job description entail?
I have a very interesting job. Given a full understanding of my job you will reach a new understanding of your life. I think you will find it interesting indeed and it will elucidate much for you.
You’ll be pleased, therefore, to know therefore that this will be the subject of the next chapter. And, of course, the timing is perfect. We started out in Chapter 8 with you asking me who I am. The next chapter will be my last with you and we will be finishing my section with the completion of the answer to that question. And then you can go on to the next seven chapters with Adamu.
Z: Oh excellent! That sounds very exciting. I can’t wait to hear…
8: Well, you shall unfortunately have to wait, I am afraid. We must finish this chapter first and there is some way to go yet.
What I have sought to do thus far is to describe to you the dimensional structure of your greater reality in such a way that you can understand it. I have, therefore, discussed with you the way you might personally experience each dimension. I have now also explained to you that there might be some very different ways to experience these same dimensions and that the one perspective does not invalidate the other it only adds to it. What I did not try to do is to describe the dimensions in terms of the hard and definite edges of mathematics. It is the norm in your current culture to see the dimensions as the purview of scientists and mathematicians. But it is far more suited to my purposes to bring to the subject the awareness that your whole reality is composed of consciousness and that one cannot remove the observer from the experience. Without the observer there is nothing. And you, all of you, are the Observers! And to bring this home I spoke in the most personal terms possible – the way you would possibly observe your own experiences in the various dimensions. And so I believe I have acquitted myself quite well of the task of describing to you in simple, understandable terms the what you might find at each of the eight dimensions.
Z: Wow, yes, I certainly think you have!
And I really enjoyed this description of yours. It was so much richer in meaning for me than I anticipated it being.
Thank you, 8.
But there is one thing I am still wondering about. You closed each description of each dimension with a shape. 0d was a point, 1d was a line, 2d a flat shape… and so on. All except the 8th dimension. Is there no shape for 8d?
8: Ah yes, there most certainly is! And it is very easy to describe too.
The shape for 8d is… are you ready for it… a point! A singular, imaginary point of nothingness which contains everything. It is a point in which depth, width and height have no meaning. 8d is the same as 0d because 8d IS 0d
Z: (laughs) Of course it is!
That is poetic and perfect. I love it!
8: (smiles) And so we have come full circle, have we not? We have ended where we began. But, as we do, so we realise we have changed and grown for the fact that we have gone around the circle. And so we are not at EXACTLY the same place as we began. It is therefore not a circle we have travelled but a spiral.
Shall we begin another spiral loop? Lets talk about densities next.
Z: Excellent. You said these were experienced within myself. But I must say the dimensions, the way you describe them, seemed to be all about my experience anyway.
8: It is the difference between inner-experience and outer-experience. You’ll see what I mean as we discuss the densities next…
…to be continued!
