Imagine you have a slider control.
One end of this is identification with the reality on this side of the curtain.
The other end is identification with the reality on the other side of the curtain.
When you are in the middle you can see both.
When you are at either end the other end can not be seen as a reality at all, and appears to be a delusion.
Being so ill and incapacitated detached you from your usual reality and pushed your slider control so your identification moved from the material to
the ephemeral. That's a short cut to what people can learn after many gruelling years of serious meditation.
Now you are back in the material world it's frustrating to lose the ability to astral travel. However nothing is really lost. You have learnt it's
possible and experienced it. Now you know it can be done, just relax and take your time about learning how to do it again when you are healthy. Pray
to whatever source of goodness you can most easily communicate with and ask for guidance in how to learn.
In the meantime, accept this material world and your ability to be healthy in it as a great gift. There is so much to enjoy, so much beauty, so many
adventures, and so many wonderful lessons to learn here. As the great soul, we created the universe as our school, as our playground, and as our
chance to experience separateness so that we could explore companionship, friendship, co-operation and love.
See its beauty, its fragility, and its impermanence and love it.
One day you will be able to fly and teleport at will for all eternity.
But this world is short term, a popsicle to lick before it melts away.
