I‘ve been giving quite a bit of thought lately to the nature of our reality—and the multitude of possibilities is certainly mind-boggling.  There are countless theories about literally everything under the sun—and despite volumes of material on every last detail, there is very little in the way of proof to support a clear understanding of our true origins, nature, and existence.  The concepts of multiple universes, multiple dimensions, quantum mechanics, extra-terrestrial life, time travel, and the illusory/holographic structure of the universe were all once considered to be in the realm of pure science fiction.  Today however, even mainstream science is beginning to find evidence that these ideas—and many more like them, are not only possible, they may indeed be fact.  I imagine it could take the next ten lifetimes for even the most dedicated of scholars to work their way through all this information—and I wonder if, even then, they could formulate an accurate picture of our nature and existence.

My present understanding is that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. That is, we are not just the “flesh and blood” physical body that many of us seem to think we are. Despite all the confusion, distractions, and “white noise” of life, something deep inside keeps telling me that this is the key to reaching a true understanding of ourselves.  Our true essence, or consciousness, transcends physicality.  It is infinite.  It is eternal.  The largest part of our consciousness, what many consider to be our soul or “Higher Self”, actually co-exists at a much higher level of awareness than we are capable of perceiving–at least at this stage of our spiritual evolution.  In order to experience life in the physical, learn, and grow, this “Higher Self” created a much smaller “spark” of awareness and allowed it to feel separate from the Whole.  Each of us is such a spark.  Once our sparks became ensconced in a physical body, we simply forgot who and what we truly are.

Many refer to the barrier that keeps us from the fullness of this memory as the “Veil of Forgetfulness”.  Although we may feel physically separate and self-contained in this physical body, we are not—we remain a part of the Whole.  The energetic bonds that connect us are subtle and often difficult for our gross human senses to detect, but they allow us to feel an expanded sense of consciousness during meditation or prayer.  They also allow us to receive guidance or reassurance through both our lower “gut” instincts and our higher, more developed “conscience”.  When our physical bodies die, the limited aspect of consciousness that we perceive as “us” travels back through this barrier and returns to the higher realms of existence.  It is then integrated back into its Higher Self.  Once our consciousness returns to its Source, it gradually regains full knowledge of its true origin, nature, purpose, and identity.  As a result of this journey as “us” in the physical, the Higher Self expands—becoming that much richer and wiser for the experience.  Many so-called Near-Death Experiences (or NDEs) and Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT) accounts describe this process in great detail and, indeed, many ancient religions embrace this philosophy as well.

After considering these concepts in some depth, it seems clear to me that the reality we are each experiencing now is, as many believe, an illusion.  It’s an illusion because it allows us to feel separate—when we are not.  It’s an illusion that hides from us our true identity, the completeness of our nature, and the fullness of our own experience and knowledge.  It’s an illusion that keeps us from remembering that, at some very high level, far beyond our current ability to comprehend, we—and everything else, are God.  This is the knowledge that’s been hidden from us from the very first moment we experienced this illusion—and it must be this way for, were it not so, how could God possibly experience anything new?  In thinking about the separation process, I realized that we, each and every one of us, are equally responsible—both individually and collectively, for the creation, expansion, and evolution of the entire Universe.  Every experience we have, every possibility we create, and every lesson we learn just adds to the ever-increasing data-stream that creates us and, indeed, All That Is.

Now if that doesn’t blow all the cobwebs out of your thinking cap, I just don’t know what will!

  1. Spot on. You might want to give William Buhlman’s “Adventures Beyond the Body” a read….it glues this all together.

    • Thanks for the visit and the suggestion, Julianna! I’ll be sure to check it out. Have a wonderful day!

    • Julianna, I have read a number of astral projection based books and I have finally gotten around to reading William’s ‘Adventures beyond the body’ which has been sitting on my shelf for a while. I’m half way through it and I highly recommend it as well. He certainly gets to the point and doesn’t hold back any info. (it’s like a condensed version of Monroe’s three books) Nice to see you mention it… bit of a synchronicity for me to find it mentioned here.

      SG, re-posted on http://www.transients.info =)

      • Thanks, Laron! Thanks to Julianna’s suggestion I did order Buhlman’s book yesterday. I’ve got “Astral Dynamics” by Robert Bruce, but I just couldn’t seem to get into it. I’ll have another look at that while I’m waiting for the new book to get here. Thanks also for the repost!

      • Oh, that’s just a fabulous bit of synchronicity, to be sure. I feel like the first half is the best of the book. I think the world of Bill (I studied with him at The Monroe Institute) – he is remarkably grounded and real. I really like MultiDimensional Man, too. Monroe’s stuff was good, but I found these other two easier for me to identify with. Bill’s felt like it merged spirituality, science, and religion into a unified theory for me, and I will forever be grateful for that.

      • SG, Astral Dynamics was one of the first books I read, that being after Lobsang Rampa’s (which had astral info in a few) and Robert Monroe’s. I found it very good and there was some great personal examples from Robert Bruce. Robert is also an energy healer and is situated in Australia. His kundalini energy program through his website is very advanced (I have it) and I love his book ‘energy work’ which I have and have done a lot of energy work from, thanks to his teachings.

        There are so many ways to approach astral projection. So many tips, from specific times to do it, having an empty stomach, using a mantra beforehand, using some energy work beforehand , doing focusing/concentration exercises every day in addition to mediation, performing reality checks throughout your day so you can test if your are dreaming from within a dream, and so on.

        Mark H. Pritchard / belsebuup is another teacher I learnt it from, through a gnositc center in Sydney. At the time Mark was the leader of the gnostic worldwide organisation. I did a number of courses at the center over a 3 year period or so, including an astral projection course and that is where I had my first experience. he has a great book as well along with a 9 week program which was used in the course I did, ‘when I go to sleep’ is the title. It’s more of a program / course than a book full of info though, but it has q&a’s after each lesson.

        Julianna, I have Multidimensional Man.

        The thing about Bill I am finding, is that he is very much like me… he resonates with me the most out of all the teachers out there who have taught astral projection. Like you say, he brought some physics into his book, the first one (I have his second as well) and it all felt right… everything he has said so far.

        You may want to take a look at My Big Toe Julianna, as Tom Campbell has really expanded the science around it all, including the system of life and is very advanced with his consciousness development. For example, he is aware of all his other simultaneous existences right now without having to leave his body and split his energy. He has a very western and analytical approach and his book is hard to read, as it has little entertaining info in it, (only a little bit of info around his real experiences) as per Tom’s style which he explains near the end why he did that. (Tom Campbell is ‘TC’ which is a person Bob runs into in the astral, within his 3 books a few times and helped to build the Monroe institute)

        I didn’t know Bill studied at the Monroe Institute, that is interesting!
