Wizard in the Space

October 2nd, 2019

Last month we explored assignments between people and this month I will continue that thread looking at assignments between humans and space.  Aristotle, from the traditional meme, professed that if God was everything then one possible way to know God would be to imagine a grid in the space in front of you.  Assign each cell in the grid a projected aspect or value of God.  Systematically relate (perhaps meditate) on one cell at a time and notice how and where you feel that aspect or value in you.  Like Neville Goddard, I would label those cells aspects of creation today and not God but either will work.  In practical terms, you could assign anything you don’t know, understand or even have a clue about it to any empty space and relate to that space (i.e., label, feel and record location).  Your set-up is very important because in your lifetime you may never cognitively understand the answer to your query.  Don’t request an answer or mastery but a clue and a path to a possible “enlightened” response.  Remember in working with space it is not “how to” but “who I need to become” to create the experience or value for you.

As a young teen one summer I was participating in a form of hide and seek at a mountain camp.  With over 100 boys looking for me I planned a path through some woodlands to reach the safe zone.  It was so dark in the woods that I couldn’t move safely even one step.  I looked up and saw a small sparkle of light through the branches.  I assumed that was the moon and asked that twinkle to share some light.  A blue faint light appeared around me and moved with me as I tracked through the forest.  I have no intellectual definition for what the apparition was or how it came about.  The bonus was that once out of the woods the searchers could not see me until I walked over to the table in the safe zone and sat down.  Cool!

It does not need to take the form of a formal request.  Henri Poincare, a nineteenth-century French mathematician, was attending to some arithmetical questions without apparent success.  He wrote, “Disgusted with my failure, I went to spend a few days at the seaside.”  At the bluffs one morning the insight suddenly came to him “that the arithmetical transformations of indeterminate ternary quadratic forms were identical with those of non-Euclidian geometry.”  I also have no intellectual idea what all that is about but the seaside was the space.

At times it is not a space but a frame of mind.  Another famous mathematician, Carl Gauss, reports working on a theorem for four years with no solution.  Then, one day, the answer came to him “as a sudden flash of light.”  He could not recall the thread of thought that connected his years of work with that flash of insight.

Why the puzzle?  Science believes that your brains work tirelessly and unconsciously on a problem until it solves it.  If that takes considerable time the answer would feel like an inspiration.  I believe the solution already exists but you need time to become the person that can hear and understand it.  That is why I think it wise to assign the task to a space outside.  For me, the act of occasionally checking into that space with my attention invokes the inspiration with me as a conscious participant.  Moving forward is the act of becoming and not an argument for a past approach, an unsolvable issue or limiting “truth.”
