Just curious if you ever contemplated any of my OBE Page ideas and experiments www.beemaster.com/obe.html
- curious if you think believe that a conscious being, wise enough to decide to come here with ambitious criteria, all good and honorable goals, is capable of independent existence outside the body while here, during life? More so, since "accepting afflictions" and other hardships is a choice, then at least one time, the spirit or conscious being did live out of body and will again do so later, if only for more judging and possibly a trip back for great rewards???
I do not believe conscious energy every goes away, it may not always jump from body to body doing missions like a superconsciousness warrior always entering into a new an even harder challenge - but energy capable of that and much much more. Energy that spans time and space and dimensions. Energy that remembers the positive of its past and seeks additional positive energy to share its experiences with in the vastness of the Universe.
I think all negative energy is grounded upon death, some may call the ceasing to exist - but to anyone who dreamed of an afterlife, glorious with God and endlessly awe-inspiring eternal life, being grounded is Hell - worse than being stranded at a desolate airport, alone for eternity.
So, when I say the conscious body can separate in an "Out of Body experience" or more physically demanding "Near Death Experience", I think it is a sampling meant to show the person that they are not creatures of flesh, but beings of energy and thought - but for the flesh part, we would be perfect in every way. Your thoughts Brian? Whether this GIFT of seeing that we are consciousness occurs from the hand of God, or that it is activated through more natural occurrences (again the details of the OBE page) is a different matter. I believe both and anyone lucky enough to experience OBE (which has some terrifying short term paralysis and vibrational States) can be very frightening - but to learn what really happened is an eye opener that is NEVER forgotten.
Interesting post, your ideas are not new to me, I know many people who believe we are the people we choose to become, no matter how severe the handicap or burden. I agree fully that life is a test, one that we are fully part in and free choice is the one tool we are given that allows us unimaginable greatness. And I am always amazed at how this topic can easily be threaded with astronomical and astrological positions - I have little doubt that ALL OF THOSE THINGS are greatly intertwined, I think of the Universe and all its many parts as the GREAT CLOCK OF GOD and every Solar System and Galaxy is a gear in it. To those who can truly read the information obtainable by the positioning of the planets and Signs, great awareness is available - if only their deciphering is as good as their understanding of the theory.
