Dragon Ball 2: Dimensions

   The last blog post I linked Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods to the ancient theories of balance - yin and yang. As a kid, I never caught on. However re-watching the series again now I see that there are immense ties between the writing in Dragon Ball Z (DBZ) and Buddhism, Taoism, and other ancient and modern spiritual wisdom. Balance, being an essential part of the foundation of a spiritual life, I covered in the first post. Now, we’ll take a more in depth look at the knowledge embedded in this show, starting with dimensions!

Who woulda eva thunk it.

   Lord Beerus, from Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, mentions he is the God of destruction for his respective dimension - the third dimension. Along with this, he reveals there are 12 dimensions, each with its own respective universe. Dimensions, being separated from each other based off of their different frequency ranges, are a large scaled chakra system, with their being 12 main earthly chakras. 

   The 13th chakra people speak of is the base chakra of our higher self, the part of our being existing in a higher dimension, which is why we cannot connect with our 13th chakras vibrating in our current third dimensional form. When we are existing in the 4th dimension, however, we are able to feel our 13th chakras, as we are vibrating on a frequency that is high enough to resonate with it. While many souls don’t transcend into their higher selves until they pass away from their earthly form, through practices such as meditation, yoga, breath work, art, and universal empathy (extending empathy to all lifeforms through people’s daily practices, such as eating), people are able to have experiences in the 4th dimension, existing through their higher selves. 

   In the same way we generally only exist within our twelve earthly chakras remaining unaware of our higher leveled chakras, we can currently only mathematically prove the existence of twelve dimensions, having only explored the 3rd dimension, the one we exist on. Much like our personal chakra systems, there is a 13th dimension. However, there is such a large gap in frequencies between the third dimension and the thirteenth dimension that humans are unable to prove its existence via any mathematical means, thus far. Not until our tools of comprehending the universe incorporate 4th dimensional knowledge will we be able to verify the existence of the 13th dimension. 

   To connect this back into Dragon Ball Z, our dimension has a system of “checks and balances,” with Lord Beerus being the means of destruction for the third dimension so that new creation can ensue. As he reveals however, his teacher, Whis, is the God of Destruction for the 4th dimension/4th universe. In the the third dimension, Whis ages over the course of thousands of years, as time is interacts with matter of the 4th dimension much differently than ours. Whis is also amazingly powerful, he hardly exerts any energy when battling with third dimensional beings as he possesses inner-power that allows him to thrive at a level high beyond that of third-dimensional lifeforms. Also, revealing that Whis is a 4th dimension being brings light to the fact that beings of higher frequency universes can travel to lower frequency universes, whereas there is much more resistance to move up into a higher dimension or universe.

  
Wow
, that’s hefty. Watch the entertainment you consume with an intent to see light, wisdom, and truth and that is what you will see.

Much love explorers. Keep searching, keep creating, and keep watching Dragon Ball Z!

 

Namaste,

Dragon Ball 1: Destruction & Creation

For there to be creation, first there must be destruction.

   Renewal - destruction and then creation - occurs when an energy becomes an untested force of destructive power. Destruction brings upon destruction. The energy we project is thrown out into the universe, and like a boomerang, is bound to return to us. If we create, new manifestations will occur in our lives. If we destroy, we will not have the means to create new manifestations in our lives; we may start to build, but it will remain unstable until we make the base of our soul creation. Every thought and action is heard and understood by a force that is higher than us, that is why those with quiet minds see God in everything. 

   In Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Lord Beerus, God of destruction in the third dimension (the dimension where Earth and the phenomena of Dragon Ball Z resides), travels to Earth, sees humans as an overruling race with egos higher than their actual status in the universe, and decides to destroy the Earth based upon humans’ devastating nature. However, after seeing Earth’s most powerful inhabitant, Goku, set his ego aside himself, admitting he cannot defeat Lord Beerus in battle and endangering his life to protect Earth, Lord Beerus grants Earth mercy, promising to return in three years to check the status of humans. While not in the form of a physical, life-like entity, Lord Beerus represents the Universe’s check and balance system, being an enforcer of karma. 

   Right now, we can see the havoc that humans are bringing to the Earth. With our inflated egos allowing us to believe that we can do whatever we want without any consequences, the Earth is revolting against us. Because of human activity, the Earth is deteriorating. However, the Earth is not going to face extinction, we will. Our destructive habits such as mass animal agriculture, over-population, and the way we personally treat other beings on Earth, are leading to global warming (which is killing us), deforestation of the Earth’s “lungs” such as the Amazon (which is killing us), smog (which is killing us), soil degradation (killing us), massive loss of bees (killing us) - you get the point, everything we do that harms the Earth harms us, and we’re the ones who can be wiped out because it… not the Earth. Just as Lord Beerus keeps unbalanced forces of destruction in check, the Universe maintains balance among all energy.
