The plot continues to thicken with regard to my astral adventures. I have now had the pleasure of the company of a truly delightful female soul, not once, not twice… but three times! As usual, I have no clue what it is all about or what purpose it serves, but I have had much worse experiences in my life, I can tell you! Being an advocate of the teachings of Ramana Maharshi and Rupert Spira, I know that the development of attachments to relationships such as these will do my long-term spiritual growth no good whatsoever. However, it is also true that Zen teaches the importance of embracing the totality. So, if this experience has come my way in the last few months, I’m going to accept it.
At first, she seemed quite excitable and a bit too playful; to the extent that I was questioning it. But the two subsequent times we have astral travelled together she has been much more disciplined. I’m presuming that we know each other from way back, but I don’t honestly know. What I do know is that she is a really lovely and very affectionate soul. I’m looking forward to sharing more adventures with her, if that is how we are going to roll; in fact, I’m hoping that even as I type, she is perusing the astral travel brochures and planning our next trip!
Sounds like fun 😉
I think the lesson here for me Virginia, is to remind me that I have a long way to go. As a great Zen master once said, “if you see Buddha, kill him!”. As long as we have attachments to Gods, gurus and the separate self we will be forever floundering on the tread mill of birth and death..
Your inner soul packed differently so that you do not get sucked into this illusory world and attachments. Wish you all the best in your Astral journeys.
Yes Madhu, it’s like the ego dangling a carrot in front of me and daring me to go for it…
