Exits from the Body
A great number of mystics of various countries and cultures get deceived by learning to exit from the body forward or upward. This manner of exiting from the body gets them into a certain sub-layer of the astral plane (depending on their own status on the coarseness-subtlety scale) — a rather dense eon, which is closest to the material world. From the astral plane one can very easily see the material world and people with their thoughts. This comes along with the possibility to “spy” upon them, play jokes on them, or influence them in some other way… This turns out to be interesting and exciting…
But when the body of such a person dies, he or she stays attached to material objects. He or she did not get any closer to God, and the incarnation was spent in vain.
But if we have made necessary transformations of our main meridians, especially of chitrini (Brahmanadi) — one of the subtlest structures of the organism, then by passing through chitrini we immediately “fall out” into the eons of the Holy Spirit at the least. And there we can see Him as Light-Love and feel Him as Tenderness. There we learn to merge with Him and to become one with Him.
… Do not these prospects, so easily attainable, spur you to reject your old dogmas and vices and to dash “with all your heart, and with all the soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength” towards the Embrace of God?
