How are we all gonna fit in Florida? Gonna be a tight squeeze but it'll be worth it.
I wonder how long Western/global civilization can survive with a generally widespread feeling of massive distrust of all authorities and just general expectation that things suck and will constantly get exponentially worse.
Seems kind of a 1980s Soviet Union feeling about how everyone just knows it's all broken but we keep going through the motions.
I suppose the Third World has felt like this for decades now... or has the resigned awareness of pervasive corruption also been offset with hope?
Unfortunately, my window of opportunity closed soon after this 2nd experience.
I have never been able to repeat the experiment. It has been over 5 years since this occurred.
But tonight, my friends, I just might try again. Thanks for listening guys. Good night.
Just as I relaxed, I felt my soul begin to move. And I was snapped back into my body which still lay in bed.
And I awoke. And I realized then that I was on my side, and how that had caused my perspective to become off balance....
I closed my eyes and I strained to wake up. But I couldn't force myself. Mustering a will power within myself, I decided to stop panicking.
I calmed myself, ready to try harder to understand my predicament. But it was too late...
I turned to place my feet on the floor and instead tumbled to the ground
My soul fell with a thump.
I felt the hard wood against my face and my body. I was trapped in between the mattress and ground. And I became frightened...
It's hard to explain this part... so try to stay with me.
I did not know, but during my sleep I had turned on my side, but when I sat up in bed, I believed myself to have done so from lying on my back.
The perspective my spirit was experiencing was litterally 90 degrees inverted. While looking straight ahead, I was seeing to the side. And I was unable to understand what was wrong...
After sometime I became aware of my unconscious state.
I sat up in bed, and in doing so, I successfully separated my soul from my body - just as had happened the 1st time.
Only this time, I was ready!
But before I could celebrate my accomplishment, something went horribly wrong...
I allowed myself to relax. As if unclenching a muscle, my frontal lobe was able to calm itself. And as it calmed, I could feel areas of my brain activating toward the back of my skull that had nothing to do with thought. Waves of energy rushed over my body.
And I fell into very deep sleep...
I felt that I only had a short window of time .
Perhaps caused by a temporary alignment of the stars, this feeling I couldn't shake told me to be intentional about another try.
I prepared my mind before I layed down in bed..
