Living a multidimensional life
One dimension is a line – a line connects 2 points. . This line does have movement – one step forward , 3 steps back… but it does not get you anywhere. We only recognize one dimensional living in others: ” why don’t you just go right? Or turn left? It’s easy and impossible at the same time. So much shame.
Are you living a one- dimensional life? Are other people loading you with seemingly simple solutions that you just cannot do? What would that look like? Being a point on a line is the ultimate in stuckness – you can only go back and forth – and things that are seemingly close are out of reach.
You can move forward, backwards, sideways. If you’d been living a one dimensional life for a while this would probably feel fantastic. You can go pretty far on a flat plane – in all sorts of directions. Many things are no longer out of reach. There is work life, home life, vacations once a year. There may be a certain sense of emptiness, but there really is no such thing as flying or rising above the fray, so you make due. You console yourself by comparing your life with those in one dimension. You wonder how others dare to fly. Things could be worse.
You are now in a three dimensional life – you rise to new heights; and sink to new lows. When the lows are prolonged – living in two dimensions seems appealing, but ultimately it does feel good to make attempts at a creative life; a spiritual life that helps you rise above the mundane. In a three dimensional life, you are trying to ‘do it all’, but the one thing you don’t have is time. There just plain isn’t enough time to do all the things you want to do. It’s impossible, isn’t it?
