What esoteric things have you studied and what do you believe?
Do you believe there are more subtle life energies present around us yet, that science has yet to quantify and measure?
I think the next step, after having so many realizations in this reality, is to leave it. The goal I wish to accomplish before I die is immortality.
It sounds bizarre but I have been led to believe in a very logical manner that you really CAN escape the "wheel of birth and death," by realizing
your own spiritual nature and returning to it "physically." That means lots of body purifying, energy raising, lucid dreaming, creating and
strengthening my more subtle bodies, then "astral projection" (in fact never being "asleep" but simply moving from one state of consciousness to
another when I lay down at night), and then doing the whole thing over again from the lower-frequency "astral" realms to the higher-frequency forces
of love and life energy that have created all of this around us, etc. Things that are very hard to talk about or explain for me, but I feel I have a
clear enough sense of the goal and the path personally to set myself on it. Whether or not I will achieve it remains to be seen obviously.
Robert Monroe recounts experiences in his books where he was deep in meditation, projecting, and he projected himself so deeply that he was told
during his experience that he must return to his body because it was about to physically die because his life energy had been so far withdraw from it.
And when he returned to his body he said he was very cold and had barely any pulse at all. That he was not yet ready to leave the physical.
You will often hear of Buddhists or other Eastern monks that they can control the exact moment of their death. I believe this is a very related
phenomena. Their "spirit" is so develop that they can simply leave their body like a pile of rocks when they feel so inclined, and they need not
In more extreme cases, such as what you hear of a couple figures in the Bible, and in some esoteric Hindu and Tibetan Buddhist lore, people are even
ascended physically to "heaven," ie "walk with God and was not," "fiery chariot" (merkaba) etc. I can't imagine the immense amount of energy
required for such a dramatic transformation but I have no reason at all to believe that this is not also possible, simply by the physics I have come
to understand of reality, pieced together both from actual science, modern scientific pioneering by people such as Dr. William Tiller of MIT, and
ancient spiritual texts. There is literally nothing that is impossible, simply because everything is ultimately consciousness and being itself. No
different than a collective dream. But the very cells of your body are also dreamers and you must wake them all up and let them know you are a
Bodhisattva and are leading them to a beautiful union just as "God" leads his entire creation to enlightenment.
