A description of the experience
Many Dimensions By Charles H. Hinton
……the great effort wherein the higher spirit most plainly shows itself, apart from … any obvious physical good, is in one very simple and obvious tendency towards a higher-dimensional existence. For, as to a higher space being, no secrets of ours are hidden--nothing is unknown, so, in making towards one another our limited lives open and manifest, we treat each other in the service of truth, as if we were each members of that higher world.
It s often said and felt, that all our actions do in the course of time impress their effect on the world. Nothing is lost. And if we, being limited, know that this is so, how much the more apparent is it when we realize our higher being. We know that, as animal frames moving and acting in the world, the effect of every movement passes on and on.
And with this effort corruption and evil fall. Space is so large that no interior can be hidden from the vivifying breath of the universe; no part can be cut off, however foul, from direct contact with the purifying winds which traverse space higher than itself.
Truth is nothing but an aspiration to our higher being. And the first sign of love towards individuals, as towards the world as distinguished from the easy and yielding good nature which always tries to please that which is nearest at the moment--is veracity.
And also in the material world around us, this is the secret of the beauty of the crystal and of still water. For in them the near and the far are brought together; in their translucency they give an emblem of the one vision wherein a higher being grasps every part of the solid matter, of which we can only see outside and surface.
