An out-of-body experience (OOBE) is when your energy/ethereal/astral body leaves your physical body, allowing you to float around the universe on another plane. This may sound like crazy at first, but there is much evidence out there validating these experiences. I thought it was hogwash until I had my first OOBE two years ago, but that’s a story for a future article detailing OOBE’s and how to achieve them.
Robert Monroe first legitimized OOBE’s by creating the Monroe Institute and refining a process by which anyone could come in an experience an OOBE. He then collected several decades worth of written reports from thousands of people. He shared many of his favorite reports in his Journeys Out Of the Body series, but the following report takes the cake…
Dear Traveler, Do you think you’ve got what it takes to be a bodhisattva? Are you ready to live in Truth for the benefit of all sentient beings, even if there is no Truth to serve and no others to serve it to? Do you think you can handle your family for a week straight without […]

On March 23rd, 2013, twenty-four scientific study participants were injected with a dead strain of Escherichia coli, a bacteria that normally induces violent sickness for days on end.

Some time ago I stopped reading and watching the news. No newspapers, no news programs and no internet snippets of world drama. I stopped because I didn’t feel it had any positive effect on my life and I suspected it might even have a harmful effect. Sometimes when watching or reading the news I felt […]

Confession: I am a reformed sexist.
For a long time I held the view that on average, women are not as capable as men. This view was based on my experience; it was what I saw around me. So many vapid women with as much substance as the reality TV stars they watched each night. But a relatively recent realization brought this view crashing to the ground: possession of two X chromosomes does not render a person less capable, but our culture does an excellent job of it.
Last year I was conversing with a gender issues expert who opened my eyes to the world from a woman’s perspective. She explained what is was like to be constantly objectified, to be treated differently because you are a woman, and what is was like to grow up with different expectations and values thanks to cultural conditioning…

Stop searching for love. It wants nothing to do with you.
Love is where you are not. It would bomb as a pick up line, but it’s a concept of love worth pondering.
They are the words of Jiddu Krishnamurti, a spiritual teacher who traveled the world in the twentieth century extolling the merits of self-inquiry.
At first the statement comes across like one of those if-a-tree-falls-in-the-woods Zen mind-benders. But spend a few moments with it and it may dissolve into a valuable insight…
Psychedelics are the chameleons of the drug world—amenable to a variety of uses, dependent on the user’s attitude. The importance of set and setting cannot be overstated. If you use them as intoxicants, you will become intoxicated. If you want to see pretty shapes and colors and “trip out” to music, then they will act […]
