Day 37, To See What We Can See: Depth Dimensions

Dear Friends,

Another Sunday, and a sunny day it is here where I am.  Plus 5 degrees (about 40 degrees to you in the States), and calling for a walk!

What will you do today to explore your depth dimensions?  Notice I used the plural: dimensions.  There is much within us that is worth exploring.  We live in a holographic universe, so in some mysterious but accurate way the whole is present in each of its parts —- we hold within us the entire universe.

How might you explore more than one dimension?  Reading and incorporating into yourself what is good about another religion’s wisdom is one way, as I suggested a couple of weeks ago.  A suggestion for today is to try a new way to open to the Sacred, or to what is most “real” that we can know.  Another way of saying that is, try a different way of praying than you ordinarily do.  Do you usually have a dialogue (or monologue) in your head?  Try 5 or 15 minutes of silence.  If thoughts come up, just notice and let the thoughts go.  Imagine being under the river, where the thoughts are the boats that go by on the surface.  Watch them go by, just don’t get on any of them.  Before you start, you might want to paint a page in your journal one luscious color and focus on that color as you sit in silence.

Or try writing out your prayer or exploration in your journal.  Write a poem, prose or in some form.

Or, just ponder what it might mean that within you are many dimensions.

With love,


Day 37 of a series of daily prompts for written, visual, or art journalling, or just for pondering.  For more background information, see the Intro page, or this post on visual journalling:
