Meet the Academy with a small analogy, which will help you understand if this is the path for you.
You’ve been used to living inside what I call Low Frequency all your life, which we could imagine as a dark room that prevents you from seeing what’s around you. You have always been used to living in the dark, a total darkness that does not allow you to know the characteristics of this room, the colors, the furniture, furniture or doors; you see nothing. In a sense, however, you feel almost reassured by not seeing, because you’ve been used to it all your life, so you feel safe and somehow you like it. Living locked up in that dark room is all you know and you’ve always done, so it doesn’t occur to you to want to go out and discover something else.
Inside you, very deep, you know that that dark room is keeping you from living your real life because you feel closed and muffled in a reality too narrow for you. But the routine, every day the same, without anything ever happening that shakes your life, makes you feel safe. Then, at a certain point, while sitting you are touching the floor completely in the dark, you find a match that probably confuses you for one of those little toys or pastimes with which you enjoy distracting yourself in that room. You play with this stick and you lose a little time later, until one day by instinct and almost without knowing how, you rub it and it catches fire. It lights up a big light, then dims, but in your life it’s like a burst of adrenaline. Suddenly you discover that there is something more than the usual darkness: there is light! This match could symbolize meditation.
But the match does not last long, so look at it for a moment without really understanding how, because the room is completely dark and you are holding a stick that makes a strange reaction, it emits light you are not used to! And this turns you on but it upset you in the meantime, almost as if I feared it. The blinding light, though small, derived from the flame of that match, strangles you because it is something entirely new to you and, as soon as it goes out, you almost remain dazed and staring into space. Try to understand why, try to understand how it could have happened, try to give a logical explanation until you prefer to think you have completely imagined it. “It’s all dark around here, it has always been, there is nothing different” you think, trying to remember the sensation you felt while watching that little flame, “Nobody told me about the light, this means that the light does not exist! If all the world existed he would know … “continue in your mind, in an attempt to give an explanation to what you have lived. So, for some time choose to return to live your life in the dark, forgetting what happened with that match. Return to your routine, in your comfort zone, where you use your time to pretend to do something, while you move slowly in the dark for fear of hurting yourself. Many times you choose to remain seated, motionless for a long time, even for very long periods of your life, for fear that by moving you can step on something or hit a wall and hurt yourself because of the darkness. So you choose to sit still, from the fear of hurting yourself because of your sight that prevents you from seeing in the darkness of darkness, rather than recognizing that the real problem, the real obstacle that prevents you from moving forward, is precisely darkness, not your view.
By chance, one day, while you are shaking hands to try to find something, you find something else: another match. You know it is him again: it is that which illuminates, which makes an immense light in that dark darkness.

You know that if you rub it on the ground he would light up and let you try that feeling out of the routine again: a strange excitement that almost scares you, but inside you you want it because you feel that those few minutes of light make you feel like a emotion inside that would seem almost a renaissance. Take it, rub it and here it is .. That light illuminates your face! Your eyes light up with her and, despite the initial fear, you choose to want to look at her again, to look at her for much longer. At the beginning you focus solely on the well-being that makes you look at that light. So from time to time go in search of new matches to light them and watch their light, until they turn off and you return to total darkness that prevents you from seeing the room. The search for matches is comparable to finding that space, during the day, in which you can allow yourself to practice. The whole day has passed between commitments, work, a thousand thoughts that make you live in unconsciousness, so in the dark, but from time to time you look for a space for you in which you can dedicate yourself to your daily meditation.
Searching for matches now becomes a routine you don’t want to miss out on because you feel it makes you feel good, so spend your day in the dark but occasionally touch around with your hands to try to find a match to use, but not always you find them, in fact there are days when you can’t find the way to meditate. Everyone lives their own path differently, so there are those who have stopped before, strangled by the strong light of the first match, there are those who instead will get tired of looking for matches because they believe that turning them on is too tiring, and those who have always had between the hands of matches but he never understood how to use them, because he always used them as simple sticks without ever thinking about lighting them. Still others, almost immediately realize the fortune they had in finding that match but, nevertheless, they light it and observe its light without going further. All they do is remain still, staring at the light, waiting for it to be consumed and then turned off. There are some, instead, that after a more or less long period of observation and well-being experienced thanks to the light of the small match, they will begin to reflect on how useful and shrewd it would be to use the light of that match to look for others, thus doing less effort to find them in the room, because the lighting of the match would allow them to see better where all the others are placed. This is where the true spiritual path comes from: from the moment you stop to look at the beauty of light but decide to use that energy to reach bigger goals.
Thinking of doing it is not the same as doing it, so there are days when you lose the desire, days when you prefer to look for tomorrow, days when even if you want to, you can’t find matches around you, or you can’t find time to meditate; so time passes. With insistence, however, you manage to implement your plan and, as soon as you find a new match to light, instead of waiting for the effect to vanish and then the light goes out, you use every second of its duration to look for other matches in the room . In your eyes the light of the match seems enormous because it is the first light that you have seen in your whole life, but in reality that light is really small, in fact it does not last long and illuminates only a few centimeters from your face, so it is too much small to show you everything there is to see. But for you it will seem enough, in fact you will believe that you know the whole world now that you have seen that little light, so you may already feel satisfied.
Time passes and day after day you use the matches you have collected to find others but due to various commitments and wasted time you turn them on only one at a time, without thinking that if you light them all together you would create a much larger light. Sometimes you think about it, until one day you turn one on first, but in the meantime you try to light another, the first one is already turning off. So you end up thinking that it’s just an unnecessary loss of time and energy. But it takes time before you realize that with a match you could also light all the others and that together they would form a great light. But one day, think about it and … Wow, what a great idea! Take a match, rub it and quickly with its flame light all the others at the same time, making a great and immense light shine!

Their light is so great that you are fascinated by it, you stand there staring at it in awe without lifting a finger, and without realizing it, the matches go out one after another and you return to the dark. Despite this, you still feel immersed in the very pleasant feeling that that enormous light gave you, to the point that you hardly notice that you have been back in the dark for several seconds, then for several minutes. You still think you are in the light because its glow has won you over, but you don’t mind having been back in the dark for a while. Certainly turning on all the matches together was worth it because it showed you that great light that excited you, on the other hand you didn’t know how to take advantage of the moment and you stood still staring at the light waiting for time to expire. Also, you have consumed all the matches in your supply, so you don’t have any more to use and you have to resume your search from the beginning, in the dark. Of course, however, the research will not really start all over again, because this time you know much better what you are looking for and what you want to find, unlike when you found the match for the first time and you didn’t even know how it went on, let alone why you should have turned it on .
Many people stop here, in the memory of the glare of the light lived in a moment, letting themselves be lulled by that beautiful memory, without thinking that they could again look for matches (or time to meditate) and relive again that beautiful experience, whenever They wish. Others, however, despite the darkness and despite the many reasons from which they are pervaded like all other people, have an eye that sees farther and decide to go back in search of new matches, turn them on to find others, to light them all together and create a large and strong light, but this time with the intent to exploit it and not just stand still to fix it. Some people then become strategists: they realize the importance of that light and want to find ways to live in that vibration for as long as possible, because living in the dark is no longer the only thing that matters to them: they are no longer afraid of light, that’s why they no longer feel the need to hole up in the dark. Thus, some people decide to strive, find more time during the day in any way, to practice a little more than they did before and evolve one step further each day. Here’s how, some people, finding new matches, manage to find whole stocks of candles. Candles, as we know, have a much longer duration than the small flame of a match could last, so the candle in this story represents the deepest meditation. We no longer speak of a meditation based only on relaxation, but one that goes beyond simple relaxation and allows you to evolve spiritually.
Some people go further because they want to know how strong the light emanating from multiple candles lit together can illuminate a much larger area than they were used to when they lit more matches at a time. The light of more lit candles would be stronger, brighter, wider, but above all more durable than the match they had known before. This is just the beginning of your spiritual journey. You lit a match and you are still at the very early stages, in which you are still a little frightened by that strong light that has upset your sight used to living in total darkness: unconsciousness. In the meantime, however, with the vision of that light it will almost seem to you that you have arrived at your destination, or that you have already discovered everything there was to discover, just because you had the first experience with a small match flame. Yet the path has not even begun, because this is only the first taste of knowledge that you could taste.
This is how the spiritual path of the Academy of Dimensional Consciousness is: at the beginning you can feel the shock of the collapsing routine, but the more you taste the light of knowledge, the more you will want to learn about the other, so you will want to use this light to achieve goals larger. A spiritual journey is not only the search for light to stand still and observe it until it is consumed. The spiritual path teaches you to use that light to create another, so that it has no end, but rather expands. Through the Academy you will have access to new knowledge that, like lights in the dark, will surprise you and then conquer you, because you will realize that you no longer want to do without knowledge. After you have tasted the knowledge you will no longer want to stop in the darkness of unconsciousness.
This is not just a path of reading, this is the Dimensional Consciousness Academy.
