The sequel to Monroe's Journey Out Of The Body is an amazing parapsychological odyssey that reflects a decade of research into the psychic realm beyond the known dimensions of physical reality.
SO MANY different belief systems, religions etc abound today that unless one can stand outside of all this, one will inevitably become 'locked in' to a pattern that will limit your most inward drive to the Greatest Freedom - in truly knowing who you are, where you came from etc.
The impact of Robert Monroe's books upon my life have been something I cannot easily put into words, since words are often not enough to convey the subtle nuances of feeling associated with inner knowing.
His highly credible nature, along with his clear & objective analysis of his experiences MINUS any copious indoctrination that would naturally obscure the greater Truth, allows for some refreshingly direct and persuasive reading.
After buying some of his HemiSync tapes and using them for a long time I found that in essence, this man's story had to be true and of the greatest import for me personally.
Having had a near death experience when I was eleven that I found to be just something strange and to be kept secret, I felt an emotional sigh of relief being able to connect all of those mysterious things of that serious time in my life, in the clear light of a new and deeper understanding obtained through reading about the same reality that Robert alludes to in his books.
Please, people, read all 3 of his books in order to reach the fullest understanding of the message within his experiences.
Robert, Thanks for helping me to remember....
There is one aspect of this book that Monroe touches upon very briefly but is of utmost importance to understand. Once you master the OOB experience, you become psychic, telepathic and the body is less likely to suffer physical trauma as a result of accidents. Monroe clearly describes two incidents where he fell down a steep flight of stairs head first and landed smack on his head both times. However, he said that his head touched the ground gently, like a feather, while his legs remained dangling in the air. His legs then gently draped down onto the stairs and he suffered no pain and developed no bruises. It is because of these "side-effects" of lucid dreaming, that Toltec sorcerers and Shamans sought to practice and perfect OOB techniques. For more information about this aspect of the OOB experience read 1) The Art of Dreaming- Carlos Castaneda; 2) The Path- Esmeralda Arana.
In this book he uses a lot of new terms which he uses to describe the Non-Verbal Communication (NVC)(similar to telepathy) and Ideas he experienced and communicated in the out of body state, into verbal language (English) which we use to make sense of things. Spirits don't use languages like humans do, since language is a human creation!! That is the reason why he used many unusual terms, to generally describe the NVC to the reader. It actually isn't that hard to read, you just have to flick the pages and refer to his word list (only about 15 words) to look up what it means.
