"...From any given point of your existence, however, you can glimpse other probable realities and sense the reverberations of probable actions beneath those physical decisions that you make. Some people have done this spontaneously, often in the dream state. Here the rigid assumptions of normal waking consciousness often fade. And, you can find yourself performing those physically rejected activities, never realizing that you have peered into a probable existence of your own.

If there are individual probable selves, then of course there are probable earths, all taking roads that you have not adopted. Beginning with an act of imagination in the waking state, you can sometimes follow for a short way into the "road not taken".

Go back to our man at the telephone, mentioned earlier. Let us say that he tells his friend he will not go. At the same time, if he imagines that he took another alternative and agreed on the engagement, then he might experience a sudden rift of dimensions. If he is lucky and the circumstances are good, he might suddenly feel the full validity of his acceptance as strongly as if he had chosen it physically. Before he realizes what is happening, he might actually feel himself leave his home and embark upon those probable actions that physically he has chosen not to perform.

For the moment, however, the full experience will rush upon him. Imagination will have opened the door and given him the freedom to perceive. But, hallucination will not be involved. This is a simple exercise that can be tried in almost any circumstance, although solitude is important.

Such an experiment will not carry you too far, however. And, the probable self who has chosen the action that you denied, is in important respects quite different from the self that you know. Each mental act opens up a new dimension of actuality. In a manner of speaking, your slightest thought gives birth to worlds.

This is not a dry metaphysical statement. It should arouse within you the strongest feelings of creativity and speculation. It is impossible for any being to be sterile, for any idea to die, or any ability to go unfulfilled.

Each probable system of reality, of course, then creates other such systems. And, any one act, realized, brings forth an infinite number of "unrealized" acts that will also find their actualization. Now, all systems of reality are open. The divisions between them are arbitrarily decided upon as a matter of convenience. But, all exist simultaneously. And, each one supports and adds to the other. So, what you do is also reflected to some degree in the experience of your probable selves and vice versa.

To the extent that you are open and receptive, you can benefit greatly by the various experiences of your probable selves and can gain from their knowledge and abilities. Quite spontaneously, again, you often do this in the dream state. And, often what seems to you to be an inspiration is a thought experienced but not actualized on the part of another self. You tune in and actualize it instead, you see.

Ideas that you have entertained and not used may be picked up in this same manner by other probable yous. Each of these probable selves consider themselves the real you, of course. And, to anyone of them you would be the probable self. But, through the inner senses all of you are aware of your part in this gestalt.

Now, the soul is not a finished product. In fact, it is not a product in those terms at all but a process of becoming. All-That-Is is not a product, finished or otherwise, either. There are probable gods as there are probable men. But, these probable gods are all a part of what you may call the soul of or the identity of All-That-Is, even as your probable selves are all a portion of your soul or entity.

The dimensions of actuality possible to All-That-Is, of course, far exceed those presently available to you. In a manner of speaking, you have created many probable gods through your own thoughts and desires. They become quite independent psychic entities, validities in other levels of existence. The one All-That-Is is aware not only of its own nature and of the nature of all consciousness but is also aware of its infinite probable selves. We go here toward subjects in which words become meaningless.

The nature of All-That-Is can only be sensed directly through the inner senses or, in a weaker communication, through inspiration or intuition. The miraculous complexity of such reality can not be translated verbally."
