THE FIFTH DIMENSION

05-15-22 5th Dimension 3.jpg

Consciousness = energy = love = awareness = light = wisdom = beauty = truth = purity.

 

It's all the same trip.

 

Ram Dass

 

Much has been written, spoken and channeled about the Fifth Dimension and humanity’s ascension into this new realm of existence.

In addition, many “ordinary” people are now having their own experiences, visions and inner “downloads” about the Fifth Dimension.

Ascension into the Fifth Dimension.

According to ascension teachings, the earth and all beings living on the earth are in the process of shifting into a whole new level of reality in which a consciousness of love, compassion, peace and spiritual wisdom prevails.

This has been called the Fifth Dimension.

Some say this shift will probably be complete within the next couple of decades; others give no date.

But all seem to agree it will be complete sometime in the near future, although individuals will be each moving into the Fifth Dimension at their own rate when their frequency is high enough to match the vibration of the higher dimension.

Most teachings state that the shift the earth and humanity are taking into the Fifth Dimension has been “planned” for eons.  Also, that it has already been happening in the last few decades.  December 21, 2012 was a date that was given as the mid-point of the shift taking place, and that it will continue to unfold in more and more obvious ways, picking up speed, as time goes on.

A Fairy Tale?

Much of what has been described about the Fifth Dimension can sound like

a fairy tale:

 

All people living in peace and harmony, experiencing oneness with all of life, fully respecting all people and the earth itself – love and compassion flowing through all communications.

Equality, justice and respect for all human beings reigning on earth—no more hunger, poverty or crime — abundance available to all.

Everyone living without fear—with complete trust in the Divine.

Everyone awake to the majestic, divine inter-dimensional beings they truly are.

Some of the descriptions can sound even more “out there”—such as people freely communicating with beings from other planets and galaxies and traveling to distant parts of the universe with these beings.
 

Imagination, Memory or Intuition?

And yet, haven’t we all had dreams of living in a world like this? Are these dreams just figments of our imagination?

Or are they memories of what we, thousands and thousands of years ago, once experienced—and at some point, lost as we descended into the kind of world we know of today, filled with struggle and suffering and lack of direct connection with the Divine?

Or do these dreams perhaps come from intuitions about the future that is in

store for us?

Many of us are having these intuitive feelings; some are having clear visions;

others are inwardly hearing about the reality of humanity’s future will be.

Some of us feel we have been waiting thousands of years for these times we are now entering.

If we seek deeply within ourselves, we may find that these dreams of an ideal and peaceful world are actually both a distant memory of what we once experienced

eons ago and an intuitive glimpse into what is now beginning to happen on earth.

And our longing to return to this ideal world is simply a yearning to finally return Home to this beautiful world ahead of us.

How Can it Happen so Quickly?

The question might arise: How can this possibly happen?

 

How can this world evolve from where it is today and become this utopian

kind of world?

 

There is still so much darkness on the planet—wars, hatred, prejudice and injustice.

The answer is two-fold: First, thousands of people on the planet are now experiencing an awakening of the heart at an unprecedented rate—and this awakening appears to be speeding up, as time goes by.  At some point, the “hundredth monkey phenomenon” will inevitably take hold.

And secondly, not everyone on the planet at this time is making the choice (consciously or unconsciously) to make the shift into the Fifth Dimension.

All souls have the choice to enter 5D, given they have assimilated sufficient light to hold the energy levels that exist in that higher vibration. 

But many will be choosing to leave the earth within the next couple of decades to move on to other third dimensional experiences in other parts of the universe.

They will not have finished with what third-dimensional reality has still

to teach them.

Those who are choosing to stay and make the shift with the earth will be going through some intense and rapid changes, as their bodies and minds make the radical changes needed to shift into the higher consciousness requisite for moving into the Fifth Dimension.

Exactly What are Dimensions?

First of all, dimensions are not places or locations; they’re levels of consciousness that vibrate at a certain rate.

There exist numerous dimensions; the fourth and fifth are simply higher than the one we’ve been living in.

Ascension into even higher dimensions will continue even after we’ve reached the fifth.

Each dimension vibrates at a higher rate than the one below. In each higher dimension, there exists a clearer, wider perspective of reality, a greater level of knowing.

We experience more freedom, greater power, and more opportunity to create reality.

In order for a higher dimension to be available to us, we need to vibrate in resonance with it.  Shifting from one level of consciousness to the next higher one means becoming established on it, so we don’t get pulled back.

The Third Dimension.

It’s important to understand, first off, that the Third Dimension is not the

things you see: the table, the tree, the earth. These are form. All things in form

are still present in the Fourth Dimension (and to some degree in the 5th); they’re

simply more light-filled, not as dense.

The Third Dimension is a state of consciousness that is very limited and restricted. Because we’ve been living in this 3rd dimensional reality for so many lifetimes, we tend to assume that this is the only reality available to live in. We think this is simply how “reality” is, not realizing it’s a very limited experience of reality.

The Third Dimensional “operating system” runs on rigid beliefs and a fairly inflexible set of rules and limitations.

For example, in the Third Dimension, we learn to believe that bodies are solid; they can’t merge with each other or walk-through walls. Everything is subject to gravity, physical objects cannot disappear, and we cannot read another person’s mind. There’s a solid belief in duality, and judgment and fear are pervasive.

 

The Fourth Dimension.

This is the “bridge” we’re all pretty much on now, and will be for a relatively short period of time. 

In traveling through the Fourth Dimension, we are preparing ourselves for the Fifth.

Many of us have had experiences of the Fourth Dimension for a number of years now without realizing it.

We can know we’re experiencing the Fourth Dimension when we have moments of spiritual awakening and experiences of heart opening.

Other times, it can happen when we’re simply feeling clear and quiet inside.  Everything within and around us feels lighter - less rigid.  There’s a sense of spaciousness

and upliftment.

Time is no longer linear in the Fourth Dimension—there’s an ongoing sense of being in present time, with no interest or even awareness of past and future. And we can discover that time is malleable—it can actually stretch and condense, much to our third dimensional surprise.

Manifestation is much faster in the Fourth Dimension.  Something we simply think about can show up very quickly.  In general, when we’re experiencing joy, love and gratitude, we’re experiencing fourth dimensional consciousness.

The Fifth Dimension.

The Fifth Dimension has been described as the dimension of Love, of living totally from the Heart.

In order to enter into the Fifth Dimension and stay there, all mental and emotional baggage must be left at the door.  No fear, anger, hostility, guilt exists there—no suffering or sense of separation. Mastery over thought is a prerequisite.

Manifestation in the Fifth Dimension is instantaneous.

 

You think about something—it comes present.  People generally communicate through telepathy and have the ability to read each other’s thoughts and feelings with ease.


The experience of time is radically different: some describe it as “everything happening at once.” There is no distinction between past, present or future.

Many of us are having experiences (or “dreams”) that feel like visits to the Fifth Dimension.

These are exhilarating—tremendously exciting and hopeful.   They keep us moving on through the difficulties that sometimes arise as we travel through the Fourth Dimension and into the Fifth.

In essence, one whole structure of reality is collapsing, while a new one is emerging.

 

It’s to be expected that some chaos, confusion and disorientation will reign

both within and around us, as we attempt to adapt to a whole new way of

experiencing reality.

Many of us are beginning to experience radical changes in our lives, as we enter into these times.

Whatever does not serve us in shifting into a higher dimension has to fall away.

This can include old relationships, lifetime careers, approaches to life we’ve traditionally taken, an outdated sense of identity, or any limited or negative thoughts and emotions that hold us in a lower vibration.

Fortunately, we can now get a great deal of help in making the transition to a higher vibration.

Beings from higher dimensional realms are more and more present to assist us; we simply need to ask for their help.

We can also become aware of the flooding of divine light that’s currently arriving from the higher dimensions.  So, releasing old patterns and negative emotions is getting easier and easier, if we have the clear intention of letting them go.
 

It’s Up to You.

If you feel a resonance with the information in this article, it’s likely you’ve decided—either consciously or sub-consciously—to shift with the earth into the Fifth Dimension in this lifetime.

If so, you have the choice to simply allow life to transform you—sometimes in uncomfortable ways, if you have any resistance to change. Life will do the job for you.

Or you can choose to actively cooperate with the shifts taking place inside you.

You can consciously let go of old patterns, release negative emotions, judgments and thoughts, and work on keeping your vibration high at all times.

This effort will likely ensure that your journey through the Fourth Dimension will be a lot smoother and even perhaps more rapid.

But there’s no right way to make this journey.  We each have to do it the way that’s best for us. One way or another, we will make it into the new reality that lies before us. 

 

What an exciting time to be alive!

 

So there ya go;

THE MIRACLE OF EVERYDAY MINDFULNESS

mindfulness.jpg

 “Mindfulness frees us of forgetfulness and dispersion and makes it possible to live fully each minute of life.  Mindfulness enables us to live.”
Thich Nhat Hanh.

Everyone has the seed of suffering inside.  Sometimes it slumbers in the depths of our consciousness and sometimes it manifests as a very noticeable energy. When suffering manifests, it’s difficult to feel joy or happiness.  The practice of conscious breathing and mindful walking or mindful sitting can help us handle the suffering inside.
Our suffering is not only our own suffering.  It carries within it the suffering of our father, our mother, and the many ancestors who have transmitted
it to us.
Our suffering also reflects the suffering of our people, our country, our society, and our world.
When we understand the nature and roots of our suffering, then compassion and love can arise.  We go home to ourselves and get in touch with the suffering inside.  Practicing conscious breathing, we generate the energy of mindfulness and concentration. 
These are the energies with which we can recognize and embrace our suffering. If we don’t have the energy of mindfulness, the suffering may overwhelm us.   But if we breathe in and out and allow our body to be relaxed, we can generate the energy of mindfulness and concentration, and with that energy we can embrace our suffering and hold it tenderly.

Suffering and Happiness Inter-Are.
There are people who wish to find a place where there is no suffering, like heaven, the Pure Land of the Buddha, or the kingdom of God.  We may think that “up there” there is no suffering; there is only happiness.  But when we look deeply, we see that suffering and happiness inter-are, just as the mud and the lotus interpenetrate each other.
A lotus can only grow in mud.  If there were no mud, there would be no lotus flower.  There’s a very close connection between suffering and happiness, just as there is between mud and lotus.  Real happiness is possible when we have the right view of suffering and happiness.  It’s the same as front and back, right and left.  The right cannot exist without the left; the left cannot exist without the right.  Happiness cannot exist without suffering.
Happiness is made of non-happiness elements, just as the flower is made of non-flower elements.  When you look at the flower, you see non-flower elements like sunlight, rain, earth—all of the elements that have come together to help the flower to manifest.  If we were to remove any of those non-flower elements, there would no longer be a flower.  Happiness is a kind of flower.  If you look deeply into happiness, you see non-happiness
elements, including suffering.  Suffering plays a very important role in happiness.
When we live mindfully, we try to live in such a way that we can generate the energies of mindfulness, concentration, and insight throughout the day. 
These are the energies that bring us happiness and the clarity that we call right view.  When we have right view, we’re able to practice right thinking. 
Right thinking is based on right view; it’s thinking that’s characterized by nondiscrimination and nonduality.
  According to right view, there can be no happiness without suffering.  Our thinking can make us suffer, but it can also make us free.  We need right thinking to help us stop our suffering.
If there is a group of people living in the same environment, some may be happy and others unhappy.  There are those among us who have the ability to appreciate the presence of the sun and get in touch with the trees, the fog, and all of the wonders of life that are around and inside us.  But there are some people who don’t have the ability to get in touch with these wonderful things.  They only see suffering. 
The conditions of their lives are exactly the same as those of the people who are happy, so why are some people happy and others not?  The answer is that the one who is happy has right view.  The other is suffering because he doesn’t have right view, so his thinking is not right thinking.  Suffering is relative. Something that causes one person to suffer may not cause another person to suffer.

Being Fully Present in the Body
With the practice of mindful breathing and mindful walking, we bring our mind back to our body.  When the body and mind are together, we can establish ourselves in the here and now and get in touch with life and all of
its wonders.

We may say to ourselves, “Breathing in, I am aware that my body is here.” Breathing in, coming back to the body, and getting in touch with the body is already mindfulness— mindfulness that my body is here and that it is a wonder.
Our feelings, emotions, and perceptions often feel like they’re overwhelming our bodies and minds.  Mindfulness helps us get in touch with all of these things that are going on.  Body, feelings, and perceptions are objects of our mindfulness.  There are many other beautiful things inside and around us that we can also make the objects of our mindfulness.  Every morning when we wake up, we can breathe in and get in touch with the miracle that is life.  There are things that are wonderful, that can heal and nourish us.  Mindfulness puts us in touch with those things.  That is the first function of mindfulness: it brings us joy and happiness.

Too Much Thinking
Thinking can be productive and good.  But most of the time, our thinking is not productive.  Our thoughts pull us away from the here and now.  It’s only in the here and now that we can encounter real life and be in touch with our body and the other wonders of life.  When we get lost in our thinking, we’re not there for life.  It’s very important to learn how to stop all of that
unproductive thinking.

It doesn’t mean that thinking is inherently bad, because in fact thinking can be good.  But so much of our thinking causes sorrow, fear, or anger to arise.
We need to learn to stop thinking in order to begin to feel.  
If you can feel the presence of your body and the wonders of life that are available in the here and now, you can get the nourishment and healing you need— from the sunshine, the fresh air, the beautiful trees, your lungs, your in-breath and out-breath. 
As you breathe in, you become aware once again that you have a body.  There’s a kind of happy reunion between mind and body.  It may take only a few seconds for you to become anchored back home, in the here and now.  We have to be in the here and now in order to truly live our life.  The past is no longer with us and the future is not yet here; only in the present moment are the wonders of life available.  The secret of meditation is to bring the mind home to the body and be in the here and now.  It’s very simple. Stopping the thinking will help tremendously.

Mindfulness, Concentration, and Insight
When you’re practicing mindfulness of body, your body becomes the only object of your mindfulness.
Breathing in, I know my body is there.  Breathing out, I know my body is there.  When mindfulness is strong and focused like that, concentration is born.  The object of your concentration in this case is your body.  When mindfulness and concentration are powerful enough, you can make a breakthrough into reality; you get insight and realization, and you discover things.  Mindfulness, or smrti in Sanskrit, is the first energy.
Mindfulness brings about concentration, samadhi, the second energy; and together mindfulness and concentration bring
insight, PRAJNA.

To meditate means to generate these three kinds of energies.  You don’t have to ask for them to come to you from outside.  Everyone has the seeds of mindfulness, concentration, and insight within himself or herself. With the practice of mindful breathing, mindful walking, and mindful sitting, we help these seeds manifest as energies.
These are the three kinds of energy that make an enlightened being.
These energies make you awake, bring your body and mind fully together, and put you in touch with all of the wonders of life.  You stop running and trying to find happiness somewhere else.  You see that happiness is possible in the here and now.
When you’re fully aware of what is there, and you can maintain that awareness and keep concentration alive, then insight arises.
This insight can help free you from your worries, fears, longing, and searching.  With insight, you recognize that there are more than enough conditions for you to be happy right here, right now.  This insight brings freedom, joy, and happiness. 

The Holiness In You
The energies of mindfulness, concentration, and insight can be generated by practicing mindfulness of breathing, of walking, of sitting, and of all your other daily activities.  When you are inhabited by these three wholesome energies, there is holiness in you.
We speak of holiness, but oftentimes we don’t know exactly what it is.  To me it’s very clear that holiness is made up of mindfulness, concentration, and insight.  When you’re inhabited by these three energies, you are a buddha, an enlightened person.
In Christianity we speak of the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit can be interpreted as the quality of presence that is there when we have mindfulness, concentration, and insight.  Wherever these three energies are, life is there, healing is there, nourishment and happiness are there.  So, it’s possible to generate the energy of holiness.
When these energies of holiness are in you, you don’t suffer anymore; you’re free. I can call you “Your Holiness.”  Everyone can be holy if they know how to generate the energy of mindfulness, concentration, and insight.  It’s not too difficult.
When I pour tea, I like to pour the tea mindfully.  When I pour the tea mindfully, my mind isn’t in the past or the future, or with my projects.  My mind is focused on pouring the tea.  I’m fully concentrated on the act of pouring tea.  Pouring tea becomes the only object of my mindfulness and concentration.
This is a pleasure and it also can bring many insights.  I can see that in the tea there is a cloud.  Yesterday it was a cloud, but today it is my tea.  Insight is not something very far away.  With mindfulness and concentration, you can begin to develop the insight that can liberate you and bring you happiness.
There is mindfulness of breathing, mindfulness of pouring tea, mindfulness of drinking tea, mindfulness of walking, mindfulness of brushing teeth, and so on. When you breathe mindfully, you focus your attention on only one thing: your in-breath and out-breath.  This is concentration on your breath.  When you are really concentrated on your breath, insight can come right away.  You may get the insight that you are fully alive, and to be truly alive like that is a miracle.

Insight Is Not Something Far Away
Insight is enlightenment, awakening.  You’re enlightened about the fact that you are alive.  You wake up once again to the miraculous reality that you are here, still alive.  There are many insights that can happen while you breathe in mindfully.  You breathe in and you realize that your legs are still strong enough for you to walk, jump, and run.  When I practice walking, I’m very happy and grateful that I can still walk.  Many of my friends from my generation have
difficulty walking.
Thanks to mindfulness, concentration, and insight, every step can generate the energy of joy and happiness.  That is meditation.  Bringing your mind home to your body, establishing yourself in the present moment, and touching the wonders of life make joy, happiness, and freedom possible in the here and now. Everyone can do it.
Everyone can pour his tea mindfully. Everyone can drink her tea mindfully. Instead of allowing ourselves to think of the past or the future, we focus our mindfulness on drinking tea.  We are fully present in the here and now.  The only thing we touch is the tea.  If I’m mindful of my body and established in the here and now, I become real.  When I’m real, life is also real.  The tea I’m holding in my hands is real.  It’s because I’m real that the tea becomes real.  The encounter between the tea and me is real; that’s real life.  If you’re possessed by fear, anger, or ruminative thinking, you’re not truly present and your tea is not truly there.  That isn’t true life.

Generating the Energy of Mindfulness
The energy of mindfulness makes things real and alive.  The practices of mindful walking, mindful sitting, and mindful breathing help generate the energy of mindfulness.  They are the basic practice.  You can also take a shower in mindfulness and enjoy the entire time of taking a shower.  When you prepare your breakfast, if you allow mindfulness to be there in every moment, it can be a time of genuine happiness.
You can wash the dishes in the same way; getting in touch with the water and washing each plate and bowl in mindfulness can be a joy.  You don’t need to hurry up and finish.  You can enjoy washing the dishes.  Washing dishes in this way is just as profound and holy as doing sitting meditation or
walking meditation.
With mindfulness and concentration, we can enjoy every moment that is given to us. 
This is the art of living.
