Spiritual geometry begins with a dot—the center. It actually begins with the circle, but the dot is the first thing that manifests, so that’s where we begin. After the dot comes the straight line. It is the radius of the manifested field that will follow. The straight line is the first outward movement, and it is the first thing to master after learning concentration.
Rather than try to explain what this is, here is an exercise that will show you, in terms of your own vehicle, what this primary symbol is all about.
While sitting, place your hands on your knees about twelve inches apart.
Look at them. Feel the blood coursing through them, and feel the energy in the nerves.
See the energy as white light, as though the energy in the nerves of your hands and arms were lighting up, causing them to glow.
Now, without physically moving them, bring your hands together. See the energy forms come together in front of you and clasp together.
You have just demonstrated the second spiritual symbol with your spiritual body.
Work with this long enough, and you will be able to project energy wherever you want.
The reality is that this is how you move anyway, but you may not have known that the physical body moves as an effect of the spiritual body. Doing this exercise shows you that you can use your energy independently of your body, which will come in real handy after you leave your physical vehicle behind at the end of this lifetime. Of course, there are endless ways you can use this before you die. The fun part is exploring the opportunities on your own, perhaps with a few helpful hints along the way.
Want to go back to the circle with a dot in the center? Now that you know what this symbol business is really about, let’s look at it again.
You know that concentration is the ability to hold your attention on a single idea or object for an extended period of time without letting your mind wander to something unrelated. Fine. But what if you concentrate without an idea or an object? In other words, what if you gather in all of your energy—you know, the stuff you normally let bleed out into the world. What if you gather all of that into the center of you, that place where you actually reside? You know from the above exercise what we’re talking about when we say energy. Now you’re going to concentrate all of it into a single dot.
You will find that when you do this that the field around you (the circle) gets emptied out. There is nothing in it. But here’s the rub: nature abhors a vacuum. Unless you establish a boundary to your field of nothingness, a lot of “stuff” is going to rush in to fill it. So, the trick (skill) is to both establish the center and simultaneously hold the boundary. You know how to do this, because you did it in the exercise. But now the straight line goes out in all directions.
This is learning to use the will. Until and unless you learn this, you can have all the good intentions in the world and still be ineffective. You can be as gentle as a dove and not know how energy works.
Give it a shot. Experiment with it and record your observations. Be methodical, but also be inventive. Remember that energy is real and that there will be results. So, be gentle.
