Introduction to the 10 Dimensions
By day I am an 8th grade reading teacher. I often tell my students that we read and write not just to pass tests and be able to get a job in the future (although those are a few reasons). But we really read to put ourselves in real, or fictional, character’s life experiences. And in doing so we too also learn how to live, love, and overcome difficulties. We write to share our own stories of how we did the same.
There was one such story, “The Boy Who Predicted Earth Quakes,” by Margaret St. Clair (1950). The premise of the story is that there is a boy (Herbie) who can make predictions. But he can only make predictions if he knows something about the topic or subject to which he is making the predictions about:
At the end of the program Read was introduced to young Pinner. He found the boy polite and cooperative, but a little remote.
“I don’t know just how I do do it, Mr. Read,” Herbert said when a number of preliminary questions had been put. “It isn’t pictures, the way you suggested, and it isn’t words. It’s just—it just comes into my mind.
“One thing I’ve noticed is that I can’t predict anything unless I more or less know what it is. I could predict about the earthquake because everybody knows what a quake is, pretty much. But I couldn’t have predicted about Gwendolyn Box if I hadn’t known she was missing. I’d just have had a feeling that somebody or something was going to be found.”
“You mean you can’t make predictions about anything unless it’s in your consciousness previously?” Read asked intently.
Herbert hesitated. “I guess so,” he said. “It makes a . . . a spot in my mind, but I can’t identify it. It’s like looking at a light with your eyes shut. You know a light is there, but that’s all you know about it. That’s the reason why I read so many books. The more things I know about, the more things I can predict.
“Sometimes I miss important things, too. I don’t know why that is. There was the time the atomic pile exploded and so many people were killed. All I had for that day was an increase in employment.
“I don’t know how it works, really, Mr. Read. I just know it does.”
I have experienced this same concept when it comes to understanding deeper spiritual teachings that can help us reach our Highest Potential States (HPSs). By learning about, and understanding, how the 10 dimensions are described, I can actually experience them. And in experiencing them, I have come to better cope with the difficulties of life, which in turn is helping me reach my own highest potential which I am feel completed to help and teach others how to do as well.
