I guess we will have to agree to disagree.<quoted text>
The way that is presented is flawed.
Most humans are only one dimensional beings. And what you call "Higher Self" is actually one's soul. The soul is the essence of who "you" really are, and the body is just an interface for the soul to interact with the physical world. Of which most people are blocked from accessing their soul, due to being conditioned by society and religions to fear the unknown, and to ridicule anything outside of the physical condition/world. So it is only those of us who can access our souls, to transcend the physical limitations of the body, who can attain Heaven/God/The Spiritual Universe, or if you wish to call it "higher dimension", that's fine also.
That is kind of true, but misleading. While there are true spiritually gifted people connecting with each other, and learning, and helping each other to spiritually evolve, mankind has always gone thru cycles of great numbers of spiritual evolver's, to declines due to corruption of teachings after the founding leader/teacher dies, Christian persecution/destruction of teachings, wars of invasion that force other beliefs upon the people, etc. So "these" times are no different than any other times. The time everyone should always focus on to spiritually evolve is NOW. Every day of your life.
That is not all true. What these teachings call "splitting of consciousness", is when God created the first souls. Yes, they were "splitting of GOD'S consciousness", BUT they were still INDIVIDUAL and SELF AWARE points of consciousnesses with free will. And when God showed me their creation, it was these first souls that were of one mind at first, and it was THEM that were confused over their individual consciousnesses and self awareness, that were searching to understand their existence. And it is THEIR/OUR purpose to experience, learn, and spiritually evolve.(For a reason I cannot state here.) But God does not need to seek to understand or appreciate himself. That is not the purpose of the creation of souls.
But I need to add that every soul's spiritual evolution does not stop there. It continues thru out all eternity.
Understanding the numerous roles that multidimensional influences play in your life is of major importance. As it becomes more and more apparent that you and your world share time and space with other realities, you will also discover that you exist in other realities as well. You may appear to exist as a singular being, yet you have endless natural connections to realities beyond the bounds of your perceptions.
