Re: Adventures Beyond the Body
Some people who have travelled OOB a few times try to kind of force it happen again. Then they get disappointed if it doesn’t work. I don’t believe such people have somehow lost their touch. For one thing, as I think Fred Steeves and sirdipswitch have said, the use of force kind of goes directly against subtly letting go of your five physical senses.
But it seems to me that it’s also important for a person to have sufficient motivation to use OOB travel. Otherwise, they’ll subconsciously stop themselves from doing it again, I believe. Maybe that motivation is to help other people, or themselves.
For a while I guess it’s fascinating to visit the subatomic world, where everything is a stark red or black, and there’s a fierce and dangerous-feeling rawness everywhere – and beings who seem to be much more intelligent than humans. Or to travel through the world where nothing exists but symbols. Or to travel through all sorts of landscapes which don’t look anything remotely like the landscapes we see on a tourist bus – and sometimes to have no idea what sort of world it is, or even to know that it’s a world in timelessness, say. But the novelty value of the exotic only lasts for so long – or it did so for me. And I never got to see any of those “landscapes” just for entertainment. I got to experience all the intensely enjoyable bits as a byproduct of trying to do, or learn to do, something seriously useful.
Also, my experience was that I just naturally somehow took skills and points of view that OOB travel taught me and incorporated them into my life. In my case, I incorporated them into psychotherapeutic work on others and on myself. They also worked for something like public speaking, for instance, because I could make my 5D body apparently expand to encompass everybody in a room, say. Then they would listen to whatever I said with interest, because it would seem to each of the people in the room as if the ideas and feelings I wanted to convey were coming from inside of themselves.
I’m not sure if a person will let themselves travel OOB regularly unless they have a strong and passionate thirst for some certain type of knowledge/experience that comes from higher dimensions. Once they get that knowledge, why continue going OOB? Only, I suspect, because of a thirst for further such knowledge/experience.
After about six years, the only OOB travel I became interested in doing regularly was the kind where I no longer had any body. That was in formless worlds, where I was like an infinitely small point.
Also, for me the type of knowledge/experience I gained always seemed to eventually lead to the perception that it felt better and truer and more satisfying not to look at the scenery. The most satisfying thing was Source, as another bob’s post #35 explains, and nothing more seemed to be needed. But I didn’t need to go fully out of body to cultivate my awareness of Source any more.
