Adventures Beyond The Body

william-buhlman-adventures-beyond-the-body

This is a great book. It gives a lot of techniques and advice for astral travel and out-of-body-experiences (OBEs). William Buhlman appeared in a documentary about Robert Monroe starting his lab and the Monroe Institute. He was one of the researchers helping Bob and I resonated with him.

It’s been long since I took notes from a book and started practicing from it right away like with this one. But it really fascinates me. It’s a natural capacity that we have to experience the complex universe of consciousness.

Wish me luck and join me if you feel like it 😉

………….

The only reality to me was the objects or beings that were vibrating close to my new personal frequency rate. Reality is relative to the vibrational density of the observer.

…….

1.Reality is relative. Experienced reality is relative to the energy frequency of the observer. We experience the energy frequencies closest to our personal density or vibratory rate.

2.Consciousness is a form of nonphysical energy extending its influence into matter through the use of biological vehicles.

3.All biological life-forms (including plant and animal life) are temporary cellular vehicles used by conscious energy (consciousness) for expression in a dense environment.

4.Our current perception that consciousness is within the physical body is incorrect. Consciousness exists at a much higher frequency or wavelength than matter and must interact with biological forms by the use of energy conduits or vehicles of form. These unseen energy vehicles transfer and step down the higher frequency of consciousness into the relatively dense physical body.

5.The biological brain is not the origin of consciousness. Instead, it functions as a temporary biological transfer-and-storage device for consciousness.

6.Consciousness is a continuum of nonphysical energy extending its awareness through multiple frequencies (dimensions) of the universe.

Continuum of Consciousness (Modes of perception)

1.Physical waking consciousness

2.Hypnogogic state/meditative states/creative visualization/hypnotic states/numerous altered states of consciousness

3.Dreams

4.Lucid dreams

5.Spontaneous out-of-body experiences

6.Near-death experiences

7.Controlled out-of-body exploration within various nonphysical dimensions of the universe

8.Continues within the nonphysical dimensions of the universe into infinity.

“Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.” Schopenhauer

……..

Basic Energy Mechanics

1.The nonphysical universe becomes progressively less dense in substance and increasingly thought-responsive as we explore away from matter and toward the source of energy.

2.As a form of creative energy, our thoughts have a natural tendency to interact with and mold the nonphysical environments we encounter. In general, the farther within the multidimensional universe we explore, the more rapid and pronounced this thought reaction is upon the energy environment.

3.Our thoughts, both conscious and subconscious, will influence the nonphysical energy that we observe. The degree of influence is in direct proportion to the intensity of our thoughts and the density of our surroundings.

4.The reality perceived in a thought-responsive environment (nonconsensus or natural) is determined by the personal energy frequency (density) of the observer and the observer’s prevailing conscious and subconscious thoughts.

Myths to Live By III

20200430_122907

What we all today surely recognize is that we are entering – one way or another – a new age, requiring a new wisdom: such a wisdom, furthermore, as belongs rather to experienced old age than to poetically fantasizing youth, and which every one of us, whether young or old, has now somehow to assimilate. Moreover, when we turn our thoughts to religion, the first and most obvious fact is that every one of the great traditions is today in profound disorder. What have been taught as their basic truths seem no longer to hold. Continue reading Myths to Live By III

Myths To Live By II

To become – in Jung’s terms – individuated, to live as a released individual, one has to know how and when to put on and to put off the masks of one’s various life roles. “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” and when at home, do not keep on the mask of the role you play in the Senate chamber. But this, finally, is not easy, since some of the masks cut deep. They include judgment and moral values. They include one’s pride, ambition, and achievement. They include one’s infatuations. It is a common thing to be overly impressed by and attached to masks, either some mask of one’s own or the mana-masks of others. The work of individuation, however, demands that one should not be compulsively affected in this way. The aim of individuation requires that one should find and learn to live out of  one’s own center, in control of one’s for and against. And this cannot be achieved by enacting and responding to any general masquerade of fixed roles. For, as Jung has stated: “In the last analysis, every life is the realization of a whole, that is, of a self, for which reason this realization can be called ‘individuation’. All life is bound to individual carriers who realize it, and it is simply inconceivable without them. But every carrier is charged with an individual destiny and destination, and the realization of this alone makes sense of life.” Continue reading Myths To Live By II

Frazer’s explanation of magic was that because things are associated in the mind they are believed to be associated in fact. Shake a rattle that sounds like falling rain, and rain will presently fall. Celebrate a ritual of sexual intercourse, and the fertility of nature will be furthered. An image in the likeness of an enemy, and given the enemy’s name, can be worked upon, stuck with pins, etc., and the enemy will die. Or a piece of his clothing, lock of hair, fingernail paring, or other element once in contact with his person can be treated with a like result. Frazer’s first law of magic, then, is that “like produces like,” an effect resembles its cause; and his second, that “things which once were in contact with each other continue to act on each other at a distance after the physical contact has been severed.” Frazer thought of both magic and religion as addressed finally and essentially to the control of external nature; magic mechanically, by imitative acts, and religion by prayer and sacrifice addressed to the personified powers supposed to control natural forces. He seems to have had no sense at all of their relevance and importance to the inward life, and so was confident that, with the progress and development of science and technology, both magic and religion would ultimately fade away, the ends that they had been thought to serve being better and more surely served by science.

Statuile din Japonia si China care il infatiseaza pe Buddha sunt complet diferite de cele diin India. In India, Buddha are burta mica, dar pieptul mare. In Japonia si China este complet diferit; acolo el este reprezentat avand burta mare si pieptul mic. Pentru noi, statuile acestea arata ciudat; credem ca sunt gresite sau chiar urate. Dar de fapt, sunt foarte corecte deoarece atunci cand un om ca Buddha respira, el o face umflandu-sii mult burta – care este si calea naturala de a respira.

O persoana inocenta, cum este Buddha, nu poate respira cu pieptul; este un mod artificial si nenatural. Iar cand respiri dilatandu-ti burta este normal ca ea sa devina mai mare si mai rotofeie. Acele statui care il infatiseaza pe Buddha avand o burta foarte mare sunt simbolice. In realitate nu a fost chiar asa, insa trebuia sa fie reprezentata ideea de inocenta si naturalete.

Vorbim de persoane precum Gurdjieff – care, intr-un anume sens, a fost o persoana dezradacinata – deoarece el nu apartine unei traditii milenare. Mai mult decat atat, Gurdjieff, in peregrinarile sale, a intalnit aproape doua duzini de mistici, fiecare dintre ei apartinand unor scoli diferite. De la aceste surse si-a obtinut bogatiile sale, bogatii care apartin unor instrumente spirituale diferite unul fata de celalalt. Continue reading In cautarea miraculosului II

Gurdjieff a fost unul dintre cei mai remarcabili mistici ai vremurilor noastre. Ori de cate ori cineva venea la el pentru a fi indrumat pe o cale spirituala, primul  lucru pe care il facea era sa ii dea discipolului sa bea. Timp de cateva zile Gurdjieff nu facea altceva decat sa ii dea sa bea celui nou venit si in acelasi timp il studia: altminteri nu il initia in nici o practica spirituala. In fiecare zi, persoana respectiva trebuia sa se imbete si atunci incepea sa elimine tot ce a reprimat. Doar dupa aceasta perioada se trecea la o practica spirituala, la o sadhana – sau Munca, cum ii spunea Gurdjieff. Iar daca cineva refuza sa bea, acesta ii cerea imediat sa plece acasa. Probabil nici un alt maestru nu a folosit bautura in acest mod. Insa Gurdjieff era foarte inteligent si putea intelege oamenii intr-un mod foarte profund si valabil. Datorita faptului ca am reprimat intotdeauna, reprimarile au ajuns sa fie incalculabile. Continue reading In cautarea miraculosului I
