I was reading through the url=http://becomealivinggod.com/forum/general-discussion/(atlantis)-re-time-travel-aliens-and-that-damned-reflection/15/ Re: Time Travel …[/url] thread and this popped out at me.
If...all these paranormal programs I've watched are to be believed it seems that spirits think the physical is THE PLACE to be and spend an awful lot of energy trying to get into or return to it and actually seem to have a certain amount of envy towards the living, physical human.
I’ve had a unique experience I’ve only shared with a couple of people in my personal life, but I think it’s relevant to this topic and hopefully it will spark some healthy discussion.
About 6 years ago, I died while in the hospital.
My body was very sick and the doctors couldn’t figure out what was killing me. I knew I was dying and I was ok with it. I said goodbye to the one person who would understand and just let go.
At some point after that, I was somewhere different. The only way I can describe it is I was a point of consciousness in a sea of drifting fog.
I was no longer attached to my physical body and I was fine with it. I was still “me”, but I wasn’t “this me”.
I didn’t feel alone. I felt connected to everything.
In fact, I didn’t “feel” much of anything. It was peaceful, quiet, restful. And honestly, boring.
I could have spent a minute there, a year there, or a lifetime there. There was no sense of time.
I don’t know how long I was there and I never will, but I heard nurses talking about my physical body back in the room. I remember hearing them say things like “Is he breathing?” It was like hearing voices coming from a room down a long corridor … there was sense of a great distance between “me” and the voices of those nurses.
Suddenly, I opened my eyes and was back in my own physical body. They looked relieved and said “There you are.”
I’m sure they used the painful physical stimulus (usually they knuckle you really hard on your chest) to bring me back because I had a DNR (Do Not Resuscitate) order in place, but I never felt any pain.
Now you can make what you will of the experience. But what I learned from that experience was this physical world we live in is where the intense emotional experiences happen.
It’s like we live in a giant amusement park and get to try all of these wild, crazy, intense, fun, scary rides.
And I thought maybe that was the whole point, to have experiences.
But after looking at evocation in an entirely new way thanks to E.A.'s insistence that the spirits are trying to get us to realize we can create physical matter ourselves …
I think THAT is the point of this world. For us to master this physical plane as we have mastered the less physical realms.
And we have mastered those. Almost any human can experience soul travel and create things on the other planes with just their consciousness.
But bringing those same things to life here is hard. And that’s the work we’re engaged in now. The reward isn’t in the Afterlife. It’s in the here and now. We just haven’t mastered the skills we need … yet.
Let the discussion begin. throws knife into the ground and walks off
