Unleashing Your Multidimensionality: Parable of Lao Tzu and the Dragon

Submitted by Open on Thu, 04/29/2021 - 04:44

On one of the walls at Openhand HQ in Glastonbury is a favourite painting of the ancient mystic Lao Tzu playing a small harp, and in so doing, unleashing a might blue air dragon. It's an inspiring picture for sure, and to me, sings volumes about unleashing our greater multidimensionality and what can transpire when we do.
It's about breaking open the limitation of the small "I' -
the identity, then with subtle feeling perception, connecting and embodying the majesty of the higher dimensional self.

Belief is Not Enough

When I came across the painting I was completely mystified by it. The picture of this diminutive and humble monk playing to an extraordinarily colourful, mystical and highly alchemical creature. At first part of me identified with Lao Tzu, but the deeper I looked, the more I was engaged by the mighty dragon. The painting narrated a progressive story that spoke into my own journey at the time.

I was exploring the tremendous creative power of the higher self, expressed as a blue air dragon - it's a metaphor of the nature of the Toridal Flow that animates all life. What does it take to open up enough to activate and animate this Universal Torus?

Belief that it's possible is essential. But belief by itself is not nearly enough. It has to do with the art of transcendence. You're drawn through life by the possibility that there's something much greater than what you witness merely on the surface. Through deep meditation and challenging the limitation of the bodymind ego, you start to unfold into the quantum field, from which all crystallises. This is totally magical when you start to experience it in the beginning - random acts of divine magic manifest around you in life.

It's so awe inspiring, that at first, you can't quite convince yourself that you're actually doing it. That is until it starts happening plentifully, and you witness it adjoining the times where you have really opened up.

Breakthrough into The Quantum Field

When you hit this point, the likelihood is that you'll experience the realisation that centering and embodying yourself in the quantum field is the place to really be in life - the only place to be! This is the field of truth, where the crystallisation of it so often leads to limiting distortion. What if you could simply live in this divine flow?

To experience the maximum amount of higher dimensional creative flow, is to reach the precipice where all small self identification has disappeared - you become the flow itself. To achieve this is spiritual mastery. I believe we're all destined for it, but you have to really commit to attain it, you have to be all-in. What this means is first activating the flow - the dragon - by opening up, surrendering and letting go. You then have to align with the sense of rightness that starts to flow through you in daily life. But this is only the beginning, it only gives you the taster of the dragon, which is still somehow separate to you.

As the power of this mystical energy starts to speak into you, it's going to move you in such a manner as to test and activate all the inner ties of limitation: in the mind for example where you doubt yourself or where you have poverty consciousness; on the emotional plane where you struggle with setting boundaries in relationship; or in the physical where you seek the crutch of soft comfort. This is where becoming the monk is essential - you have to apply some of the ancient practices in your life to feel the contracting attachments and break through them. Here at Openhand we apply the Breakthrough Approach, which is a modern synthesis of some of the ancient wisdoms...

The Dragon as the Universal Torus

The more you become that which is challenging the small "I" identification, all the fears and ties that hold you back, then these ties transform into the strings that play the multidimensional music - each distortion breaks open to reveal a hidden gift of the soul. The more you then play this melody, the more you unleash the power of the dragon. You find yourself becoming the dragon: it expresses and speaks through you - it manifests magically around you. You start to unleash the phenomenal power of the Universal Torus.

“Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.”
― Lao Tzu

The Dragon is a mystical being. In the painting it looks powerful, alchemical and strongly imposing. But under its mighty creative power lies a deftness of touch aswell. It can articulate sweetly and softly, speaking into the tiniest moments of synchronicity. Or it can swoop and blaze and storm. It all depends on how the universal flow is wanting to animate at that time. It does so with compassion but never weakness, strength but never crushing, creativity but never overriding. It's purpose is to unleash the same kind of creative power in those it comes into contact with - to animate the flower of life in all.

Understanding the Metaphysics of the Universal Torus

Healing Your Wounded Dragon

I share my short parable of Lao Tzu and Dragon with you so as to inspire your practice and inquiry. It's simply beyond words at what can transpire as you progressively break down the many layers of the egoic self. It's a mighty challenge indeed, but mightily worth it. Each layer unveils a new gift of beingness, a new string to your harp, which begins to play a melody, so sweet and so compelling, that it can't fail to conjure the mighty mystical dragon of the Universal Torus into your life.

And to start you on your quest, I felt to share this Openhand video on healing the wounded dragon, which offers some essential pointers on how to break down layers of the ego that limit. If that inspires you, it's followed by a link to a download meditation you might practice.

05/05/2021 Openhand Journal - Portals Opening

I was travelling in the dreamtime all last night. Major shifts and openings were happening in the field here around Glastonbury - a narrowing of the densities, a dropping of the veils. In the days previous, I've dropped deeper into the physical, which felt disconcerting and disconnecting for a while, but now I know why. Dynamic new energies needed to be brought in and anchored. A portal opened up and a raft of higher dimensional "dragons" stormed in as flashes and streams of light, zipping across Wearyall Hill and around the Tor. I saw the stone tower on the top of the Tor break apart into rubble, replaced by a golden shaft of light - a light house.

It was a Dream, But Real Too

Yes, it was a dream, but I was fully awake during it, and I could feel the Dragon energy pouring in through the portal and surging around me - then further afield, zipping across the roof tops and across the land.

What does it mean?

These were "sky dragons", metaphysical energy flows to open up channels of light, to activate vibrant new consciousness in people. It's charged and exciting - vibrant.

5D energy is not what many teachers here have correctly understood or presented. It's a highly fast and vibrant energy. It knows no fear. It is the antithesis of control and holding on. To ride such a dragon, you've got to let go inside and open up. You've got to be prepared to leap off the cliff-face and into your destiny...

This possibility is real, in all walks of our life - to consciously create in a vibrant new way - to step forth confidently and with conviction along the pathways of light that are opening up.

Are you one of the dragon riders?

Of course this infusion of Dragon energy is happening at an extremely significant time - 5th day of the 5th month 2021=5.

Hi Open, 

Yes, I've been recently traveling with this energy and can certainly say these "dragons" have a mighty task and are just starting to work with us here on Earth. As the planet has been kept in the wrong polarity for way longer than it was meant to, what actually is taking place is reclaiming the sector back.

The dragons facilitate sudden change and help people or planets in this Universe with the consequences of it. They simply put things back to their rightful place. And in doing this invite all Darkness within individuals and the human collective to be integrated. Those that are not able to or don't want to, will be completely removed. There is no grey area. There is no plan B. This Universe has decided not to participate in Darkness in any way or form anymore. 

With love, 


01/05/2021 Openhand Journal at Beltane

It's "Beltane" today, May 1st, an ancient Gaelic Festival in Britain which marks the beginning of the summer. It's where we really get into gear with our creativity. If you've been doing lots of tough processing and peeling back the layers then now it's time to start creating. Where might you channel best the emerging energies you feel? Maybe a creative art, a new venture or perhaps even a new place to live.

Remember it's all about unleashing the Toroidal flow through your own field - which is always going to be highly creative - hence my sharing about the parable of Lao Tzu and the Dragon (see above). Here at Openhand we're applying the process "Openway" to help facilitate that.

Here's an understanding of the process...

Attune Your Spiritual Compass to align with the Toroidal Flow

To come into alignment with the Universal Torus, you'll need to develop, and attune, your own 'spiritual compass'. I put it to you that in outline, it needs to achieve this...

In any given moment: (1) recognise how best to pick up your authentic natural expression, (2) deal with any karmic anomalies which then activate,(3) unleash integrated soul through them. It's this that connects you back to the Toroidal Flow of life.

Here at Openhand, we've developed a tool called "Openway" to attune your own spiritual compass for aligning with the Toroidal Flow. Although simplified, it does take a high degree of surrender and mastery to apply. It's an integrated 3 step process...

1) 'Open into the Soul' - soften through small “I” identity; tune into the mainstream of the soul and begin to follow it.

  • Through breathing, meditation and keen internal observation, you begin to soften identification with the small “I” identity, felt as tightness throughout the bodymind. You begin to pick up, and attune to, the subtle vibrations of the soul, often felt as expansiveness, timelessness, joy, peace, interconnectivity and unconditional love. Completely accept that the purpose of each and every moment is self-realisation and actualisation. Therefore relinquish the need for any particular outcome, or any resistance to the natural flow of the moment. Thus you start to connect up to the soul’s mainstream, which begins to speak through you as an inner pull to act or the landing of Higher Self intuitions. Increase the integration of soul by following these impulses as much as possible.

2) 'Open through Blockages' - confront and unwind activating blockages; integrate fragments of soul releasing from the density.

  • As you increasingly attune to the mainstream of the soul within, subconscious blockages, tightness and karmic trauma are activated, felt as constriction, tightness and source pain. Become as-one with these experiences by completely honouring and expressing them. Work to realise either as a knowing or feeling, what the limitation was all about. Accept them to the extent that you don’t need them to go away. Once fully accepted, use breathing, movement, visualisations and emotive music to unwind the inner restrictions. Allow the fragment of soul to integrate by feeling your completeness in the situation.

3) 'Open for Beingness' - soften through tightness into pure presence; unleash ever more authentic qualities of soul and step into Right Action.

  • By opening through blockages and source pain, you expand into the tightness they generate, dissolve them and begin to access the 'void' – a crystal-clear place of pure presence in the background of activity – our True Self. It feels like infinite peace and acceptance – awesome okayness, pure “isness”. From the infinite potential of pure presence, authentic beingness will simply arise. Attune deeply to these feelings by applying yourself to full energetic, mental, emotional and physical expression of this naturally arising beingness. Give yourself completely to “Right Action” – a sense of ‘rightness’, which is totally aligned with the natural flow of the universe, leading to resilient, fulfilling, successful and joyful living.
