In human experience, we don’t live in just one world, but rather three. The middle world, which involves what we experience and what we think we see in our world. The upper world or the heavens. The realm of higher thought and inspiration. The lower world or underworld. The realm just below our senses and beneath what we considered our faculties of reason.
The underworld is not literally in the earth. It isn’t beneath your feet, but it is in the direction of falling. Internally, we shift into the underworld when our falling awareness is triggered. It’s a very visceral, animal like shift in consciousness. There are forces running through all three worlds, but the same forces show three different faces. Perhaps the most important thing to remember is that life is the law and a rule running through all worlds.
This facet of the world has always existed and always will exist. It’s one part of the necessary balance our world takes to allow the growth we can experience in the normal world, and event’s in all three worlds parallel each other.
“The entire lower world was created in the likeness of the higher world. All that exists in the higher world appears like an image in this lower world; yet all this is but One.” Michel de Montaigne (French Philosopher and Writer. 1533-1592)
