An Inside Story 57
TWO WORLDS… 5
WE are spiritual beings more than we are physical beings really, so why is it so damn difficult for us to answer the questions about our spirituality? Because we are attempting to find finite answers to an infinite question. Consequently, it can never be fully resolved while ever we are here on the physical plane, for we are all finite beings imprisoned in this finite world.
It’s no different than trying to describe a world in another dimension. It is impossible for a three dimensional being, such as we all are, existing in a three dimensional universe to describe say, a one, two, fourth or fifth dimensional world. Try it.
Attempting to describe the spiritual world, brings up the same problem, only there seems be an urgency deep within us to understand it, for we have an inner sense, a yearning, a faded memory that that is where we truly belong.
Because of our innate connection with this mysterious spiritual world, mankind has tried to understand what it is and our involvement in it from time immemorial. Philosophers, Sages, religious scholars and ecclesiastical denominations of all kinds have tried to define our spirituality, but all have failed miserably.
Some hypocrites think they know and even preach to us that they know, but they don’t, they only delude themselves and us, doing more harm than good, for they too are mere mortals. As a result of their ignorance, a whole lot of miss-information has accumulated over time, burying the truth even further into the morass of superstition and belief.
The spiritual world cannot be described in earthly terms because in the spiritual realm there are no ‘things’, therefore there is no space between any-thing, there is no past or future, so there is no time to elapse. It cannot be ‘up there’ or ‘down there’ or ‘anywhere.’ For that to be so, it would have to be a world in time and space, which it isn’t.
It is nowhere, yet everywhere. That’s the dilemma we face when trying to understand and explain the infinite spiritual world in finite terms…
