Differentiating 3rd and 4th-Dimensional
How important are the hand positions in Reiki?
The pills prescribed by John of God are inert ground passion flower leaves -- how can they heal?
Isn't blessed water nothing but H2O? How can it be any better than Crystal Springs water?
Quantum-Touch or Matrix Energetics, or Pranic Healing, Reiki, Yuen Method -- which one is the "best" healing modality?
How should I pray? How long do I have to pray for my wishes to come true?
These are common questions people ask. In
this article, we discuss them from the perspective of our
understanding of the "3rd" and the "4th"
dimdensional realities. *
(Part of this discussion is excerpted from Chapter 6 of our book "Expanding Perception -- re-discovering the Grand Original Design).
People keep asking these and a thousand
similar questions. It is our nature to think this way --
nature. It is the way our parents were thinking, and our
grandparents. It's the way of traditional teaching in
our churches, synagogues, mosques, temples.
But these questions are the result of a
confusion between form and content. In the
Christian tradition, they are rooted in Old Testament
thinking. Jesus came to raise the human awareness above
the level of "form" to the level of inner qualities such as
love and compassion. Wisdom is to know that the result
of anything related to ethical values is not depending on form
but on content.
There is a fundamental difference
between our physical space-time reality and the nonphysical
reality. We call the former the "3rd-dimensional"
physical level and the latter the "4th-dimensional"
spiritual realm.* Essentially all our human
activities occur on the 3rd-dimensional level, except those
activities that involve thinking and emotions. Everything that
is mechanical, that can be calculated and manipulated, is of 3rd-dimensional
nature. The ten commandments are 3rd-dimensional -- but
the inner condition of a person deciding to abide by
them, for the love of God and our fellow human beings and the
world, is 4th-dimensional. Becoming a medical doctor is
a third-dimensional endeavor -- but compassion is a
fourth-dimensional quality. Worrying about the correct hand
positions in Reiki, about remembering the right words in a
prayer, about how many seconds John of God in Entity devoted to my
case, all this is third-dimensional -- but the inner attitude of caring
In this somewhat arbitrary and perhaps a
bit confusing definition, we make a distinction between
"three-dimensional" and "third-dimensional," and
between "four-dimensional" and "fourth-dimensional."
When talking about forth-dimensionality, we don't refer to
physical dimensions (space and time), but we refer to the part
of reality where consciousness, thought, spirit, love, and the
fields of wisdom reside. It includes the formless and
timeless field of life-sustaining energies -- sometimes called
the "Field of Unlimited Potential," in Christian circles
traditionally called the "Realm of the Divine," or simply
Physical healing has two components: one
is the very important conventional medical practice, including
surgical and pharmaceutical treatment, and supplemental
nutrition. The other component is the equally important but
often ignored healing intervention from the fourth-dimensional
realm. There is no limitation in space and time
and efficiency to the forth-dimensional power.
Not in healing! Not in the love extended toward us.
It is not the 3rd-dimensional biological
substance (passion flower) that makes the pills prescribed at
places like the Casa de Dom Inacio in Brazil potent --
it is their nonphysical charge with 4th-dimensional healing
energy, especially designed for you, that makes all the
It is not the purity or the quantity of
blessed water that makes it worth your while to drink -- it is
the blessing it contains, providing an invisible channel for
healing energy flowing from the fourth- (divine) to the
third-dimensional (biological) body that needs healing.
And just as the potency of homeopathic remedies increases with
dilution, so may you dilute and dilute and dilute your blessed
water, still keeping it fourth-dimensionally potent.
And, yes, the more you consider prayer
as a way of life, rather than a string of words -- the more
your wishes will have a chance to come true.
* The differentiation between "third" and "fourth"-dimensional realities first became evident to us in seminar teachings of Emilia Rathbun in the early 1970s, and then later in teachings of Ron Roth around the year 2000. Although neither Emilia nor Ron placed any emphasis on it, in their nomenclature the "first-"dimensional reality was the inert mass in the universe; the "second" referred to unconscious life, and, of course, the "third" to the human being.
In reverence to these great teachers, we maintain this nomenclature, even though subsequently other authors are calling it the "fifth dimension." We also do this also in keeping with our writings about the dualism analogies between the physical and spiritual realms. Most importantly, however, we want to avoid the pervasive misunderstanding that these other authors might be talking about a "fifth" physical dimension. Such a concept would not conform to our thinking at all. The "forth"-dimensional (or, for that matter, "fifth"-dimensional) reality would not be, and should not be understood as, our physical 4-dimensional space-time reality with the addition of a fifth physical dimension.
Having said all this, it might well be best to avoid the confusion altogether to delete the word "dimensional" entirely in our nomenclature, and to simply talk about the "third" and the "forth" reality.
