"I've been to the edge
And then I stood and looked down
You know I lost a lot of friends there, baby
I've got no time to mess around"-Van Halen
An interesting aside to this, "polar axis", that has the switching ends faster than speed of light and is located from the coccyx bone to what was the soft spot on head when baby (looks like a solid rod of light) and it's frequency differentiates (among other things) differences in physical appearance between life forms. This same axis is the alignment for the Chakras in Yoga. All Meridian lines in acupuncture spring forth from this, "rod of light".
It's a good thing that man uses only approximately 10% of the brain (at any given time) because there is tremendous power in this, "rod of light". Not just power to build one and power a UFO but to inter-dimensional travel yourself. Also, within this rod of light (if tuned correctly) the power to heal, superhuman strength, and even levitate (among many more things).
Everyone is a potential superhero and no one know's it!
This world (and associated illusion) conditioned us from an early age what to think and how to act and what to believe. Also, when I describe all this around us that we see and perceive as an, "illusion", that doesn't make it any less real. So don't confuse illusion as non-reality. By illusion I mean a veil.
It's almost a matter of unlearning!
An earlier quote in this thread from Plato left out the most important part. He wrote:
"We know more from the time we are born until the time we speak our first word and from that point forward this world is a description we take for granted as it and only it, whereas there is much more beyond all this".
I'm reminded of my two brother's (who are identical twins too each other) and they had their own language between them. A doctor recommended they be institutionalized as they would never amount to anything. My parents refused and they didn't start speaking (English) until almost age four when begin speaking when I started speaking (they 2 years older). They are both successful doctors (not far from retirement).
Apparently this actually happened fairly often (many years ago) to identical twins that had their own language between them.
As Plato expressed that we are born with much knowing that is lost (in part) even through the process of learning a language itself. The world has taught us much of what is supposed to be impossible and what we are supposed to believe.
If one believes one cannot do something than surely they can't because they believe it so.
If you know (and believe) you are all living things and have that level of self-realization and that you are, "one", with all living things and that you don't just share atoms, molecules, elements, etc. with living things and when you look another in the eyes you see yourself and you see yourself in the eyes of all people and animals and you see yourself everywhere in living things including plants.
This connection and, "oneness", with all natural and living things is actually, "communication".
Earlier I mentioned that while I was a Shepard in Israel a Buddhist Monk and I discussed a level beyond, "no thoughts". The Buddhist Monk wasn't aware of any such level beyond, "no thoughts".
The level beyond, "no thoughts", is communication.
But wait...if there's no thoughts than how can communication take place?
Mainly, the communication beyond, "no thoughts", is, "seeing", and, "knowing".
The vehicle by which you are connected to all living things (so this communication can take place) is also essential in our discussion of the geography of the, "spiritual realm".
I was fortunate enough when in Israel to study, "Kabbalah", for a time in Zafat.
Just remembered an interesting aside: Some Rabbis got me to enter my stuff in for the, "Bible code". Can't remember what all is entered aside from name but two potential hits can come up for anyone who enters info.
Apparently most people don't even get one, "hit". I had both and (guess extremely rare) they were both in the same book a short distance apart. So I'm standing there looking at these Rabbis with their eyes and jaws wide open and one finally blurts out to the other Rabi pointing at me, "this is Noah"! "He must be Noah", he said.
Other Rabi kinda speechless and said something in Hebrew I couldn't understand and they rushed me out of there quick staring at me kinda weird like. Ya, and my Ark a huge spaceship...lol!
So wonderful folks there in Zafat. Practical Kabbalah nothing to mess with unless know what you are doing (reminds of Golem story need to tell at some point).
So here are a few charts.
So I noticed something wrong right off when I got my first book on, "Kabbalah".
The highest and most powerful (and one that should be at top) is missing completely. There are a few that approach but to not have it out there in big, bold letters is a major shortcoming.
Because what is missing from many disciplines and even religions is, "love".
"Love is the connection"!
It allows the communication to flow most easily and freely.
Love is not just an emotion or feeling but a genuine power and is in fact the most powerful power in the, "Universal", universes. This isn't the, "I love hamburgers", kind of love here I'm talking about. There are different types of love.
Mental telepathy is perhaps the best example that many may have had some experience with. Ever had a loved one that you could finish their sentence or both were thinking same thing at same time (but didn't know it at first). My wife and I do this almost daily. Many boy/girlfriend and husband/wife will have this kinda of partial telepathy. The reason is because, "love", is the best and easiest lubricant for, "communication".
But not just communication with loved ones but even plants and animals. Plants and animals often easier to love as takes less patience and effort than loving people.
I have always loved everyone (I thought everyone was like me and loved everyone like I did when I was growing up)! I am hardwired (and have been since I can remember) for love. It's a curse really because I spend my life crying all the time inside for everyone (sucks as much pain because much suffering here).
My wife doubts sometimes that people like me exist (I know there are more out there that hurt for others through love like me) but when 9-11 anniversary was here last week she saw a pic on TV of the WTC shrouded in mist and teared up.
I told her that her tears were tears of compassion and love for people she didn't even know.
So many love yet are out of touch with themselves and just don't realize the love they have inside. The world tells us to hide it and bury it. But many can get in touch with their own love through self-realization of their own compassion.
Could even set up a hypothetical scenario where imagine how you wouldn't want to see someone get hurt in an accident in front of your house etc. So you have compassion. Compassion is the spark of love. Empathy ain't bad either...lol.
Pets don't have to, "learn", how to love you! We have to unlearn the world to love each other.
Important part to remember is that, "love", is an unrealized power in it's ability to allow one to connect and thus, "communicate", not just to all living things but open doors to the universe and beyond (too be discussed later).
Saving astral projection technique itself until after we have covered all avenues of lucid dreaming and then some examples of my teaching/learning process and what you also might can expect.
Next time....finish geography (spiritual realm) and eventually continue with lucid dreaming, remote viewing, and getting into stuff.
