We are all quite multi-dimensional these days. It's pretty incredible really when you think about it.  Through the advances in technology, communications, language, arts, engineering, everything, it is now possible to connect more aspects of our lives, with more people in more ways than ever before.  It's enough to make your head spin.  The human mind is a linear thing, not necessarily equipped to be everywhere at once.  Yet we are aware of our connection to more places, in more ways than ever before, and it's only going to keep expanding.

We are reaching a point where we cannot afford to limit ourselves, to be one sided is to be obsolete.  We have seen the world as unified, we have heard the stories from various sides, we know that our actions effect all things, and we can't unknow it.  This is why many people upon reviewing the complications of social issues just want to throw their hands in the air and give up, or  settle back into a simpler story, one with a clear identity.  It's as if to say, "I know there is more to life than my simple story, but this is all I can manage so I'm going to give it my best and hope it works for everyone else too".  This is why there is a disconnect between so many facets of life. This is also why we are torn between conservatism and radical progress.  It doesn't have to be this way.  

When you back up and look at the whole picture, something comes to focus.  It's not that I am one story, in competition with all other stories, it's that I'm many stories, and everywhere I look there is a piece of me, a place to express, another life to be felt.  This happens inwardly and outwardly, it happens in a way that jumps through limitation in the spirit of self discovery.  It is an invitation to live multi-dimensionally.   It's easier than it seems, and it's already happening.
