Multidimensionality in the Multiverse

A day before Thanksgiving Day, the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) aired the fourth and final episode titled “Universe or Multiverse?” of the new NOVA science documentary The Fabric of the Cosmos (see immediate image below).  The episode deals with the growingly popular cosmological theory of a “multiverse,” as opposed to the longtime held belief in the reality of a single universe that contained all of existence.  Not a novel idea though, when you consider that ancient Hindu mythology describes how the sleeping deity Vishnu dreams up a creation of multiple worlds into existence, like bubbles flowing forth infinitely from him, and within each bubble is an exact replica of him asleep and dreaming.

After viewing this particular episode, as well as the preceding ones which included the illusoriness of space and time, I had a “light bulb” experience (an “Aha!” moment) in which something within me was confirming that this was a piece of the jigsaw puzzle to the spiritual transformation now gripping our lives and our world tightly.  It seems to me that our awareness of multidimensionality is now being publicly expressed in terms of the cosmological concept of a multiverse — an infinite number of manifest and manifesting universes, all being expressed and coming into manifest form within the infinite Mind of God.  

Perhaps, the only aspect still left out of the scientific equations underlying the multiverse theory is the notion of consciousness or God, Itself.  I know that science still has serious reservations about this if only because little is known scientifically about consciousness and because of its lack of physical substance or objectivity by which it can be dissected, studied and explored under the glare of scientific observation and experimentation.  If we were to include consciousness in the picture and factor in its relationship to Mind and the multiverse, we would arrive at the “Fabric of Consciousness” as the theory of everything revealed through the teachings of mysticism.  (It is quite a happy coincidence — better yet, a pleasant and most welcome synchronicity — that such a “Fabric of Consciousness” was revealed to me almost fifteen years ago.  The presentation of the “Fabric of Consciousness” is an integral module of our spiritual learning program and is fundamental to our class discussions.)  

Within the multiverse is the realm of all possibilities, existing like picture slides or movie reel frames depicting all possible scenarios of life’s every moment and aspect of becoming. Like a needle with thread, consciousness weaves the mind’s tapestry selectively through those slides or frames based on our states and stages of consciousness, forming the seeming continuity of our life experiences as they unravel before us.  And therein lies the secret to our multidimensionality and to our freedom and liberation from the human condition, including our key to transformation and change.

About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of "contemporary mysticism" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of personal study, practice and spiritual unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission. Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s. Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual instruction and transformation. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring, spiritual direction, and spiritual healing work. Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.
