Ruminations based on Robert Monroe’s book, Journeys out of the Body.
IN DREAMS PEOPLE DO EAT FOOD AND HAVE SEX
In the dream with mother’s soup, I took a chunk of fish from a bowl of soup on a table and ate it. That means that folks do eat food in dreams even though dreams are not real.
Similarly, people do have sex in dreams. Again, dream is not real, yet people eat and have sex in it.
The implication is that our day world in which we eat and have sex is also a dream and not real.
IN DREAMS THOUGHTS TRANSLATE TO ACTION WITHOUT TIME INTERVAL AS WE DO ON EARTH WHERE WE FIRST THINK AND THEN TRANLATE OUR THINKING TO ACTION
In dreams we think and translate our thinking to action as we think it and do not have awareness that we are thinking for thinking and action are simultaneous.
On earth we first think and then try to translate our thinking to action.
In dreams our thinking produces forms, what we see; our day world is also the product of our thinking but not instantaneous because it is done by all of us collectively, whereas dreams at night are solo thinking that produce the solo forms one sees.
IN DREAMS ONE TAKES ON WHATEVER AGE IS APPROPRIATE FOR THE DREAM ROLE ONE IS PLAYING
In the dream of eating mother’s soup GN and I were teenagers. In dreams I have seen mother as a young woman in her twenties and seen father in his thirties; thus, in dreams we take on the age that is appropriate for the role we play without being conscious of how we did it.
THE HUMAN BODY WAS DESIGNED TO PREVENT PEOPLE FROM THE AWARENESS OF THEIR SPIRITS SO THEY MUST TUNE OUT THE BODY TO BECOME AWARE OF THEIR SPIRITS
The human body was consciously designed and constructed to prevent the sons of God from the awareness of their real selves, spirits; it was meant to induce self-forgetfulness and remembrance of their animal nature. One must, therefore, transcend one’s identification with body, deny that one is body and keep quiet for the awareness of one’s real self, spirit to dawn on one’s mind.
Throughout history people have used eating sparingly, fasting, breathing deliberately to get more oxygen into the body, meditation, efforts to forget the body and make the body quiet to enable one to remember one’s spirit.
One experiences fear of dying to body when one begins to remember the bodiless real self, this fear must be overcome.
POETS HAVE A WAY TO DISSOCIATE FROM THEIR EGO MINDS AND TUNE INTO THEIR SPIRIT, THE PERIPHERY OF IT, SUBCONSCIOUS MIND
Poets can use the ego defense mechanism of dissociation, to separate from their egos and identify with another self, a self-close to the real self but is in the unconscious mind and from there glean the nature of reality, not in prose but in poetic form hence not clear.
THERE IS NO PHYSICAL UNIVERSE OF SPACE, TIME AND MATTER AND THERE ARE NO PEOPLE IN BODIES
The physical universe of space, time and matter does not exist; people in bodies do not exist, either; there is no me in body.
If I say that my body is made of physical light, whereas that is true it is still false for physical light does not exist (since it formed matter); if I say that my body is made of flesh, flesh is made of matter, and both do not exist.
I do not live in body and do not die in body; it is all make belief; what exists is self, the son of God who sleeps and invented space, time and matter and uses them to dream that he is a separated self-housed in body. His earthly self, the ego is conceptual, made up and does not exist, either, but it is like body if defended defense makes it seem real to the defender.
If you choose, right now and not defend your ego and body you disappear from existence in ego and body and will not see the earth, space and matter; you will know yourself as part of one unified spirit self, aka God; from that state you can choose to reappear in matter, body on earth in any body you like and any age you want for all of them are false.
MONROE’S SECOND BODY IS ALSO FALSE AND DOES NOT EXIST BUT SEEM TO EXIST FOR HIM
WHEN MONROE IS IN HIS SECOND BODY, OUT OF BODY HE THINKS AND ACTS FROM THE SECOND BODY NOT FROM THE ORIGINAL BODY THAT LIES LIKE A LOG ON HIS BED; THIS MEANS THAT MIND IS NOT IN A PARTICULAR BODY BUT IS OUTSIDE BODY AND CAN BE TRANSFERRED FROM ONE BODY TO ANOTHER
When I had my out of body experience my mind was in the new body, that I did not see, with me thus confirming that mind is not in a particular body but in whatever body one transfers it to. In the experience of seeing me in another body standing in front of me, my mind was in my old body, and I tried to touch the new self and it had no flesh but did whatever my old self tried to do.
IF YOU RETAIN YOUR EGO AND BODY, SINCE EGO IS AN ADAPTATION TO YOUR SPECIFIC BODY YOU WILL HAVE ALL THE PROBLEMS OF YOUR OLD SELF, YOUR FEAR AND ANGER, BUT YOU CAN CHOOSE TO LET GO OF IDENTIFICATION WITH EGO AND BODY AND YOUR FEAR AND ANGER DISAPPEARS TOTALLY
I HAVE LEARNED ALL THE LESSONS THAT LIVING IN BODY COULD TEACH ME SO I NO LONGER NEED TO LIVE IN BODY AND MUST TRANSFIGURE MY BODY TO BODY OF LIGHT FORM
Formless spirit decided to learn whatever living in body could teach him, so it manifested in body. Lives in it, eats food, grows up, ages, weakens and dies. I have had all those experiences from the day I was born and have learned all that living in body can teach me, so I no longer have need to live in body. Body is now purposeless for me. Therefore, I must exit living in body by transforming my body to light form and from there help those still living in body.
