Only a hypocrite would claim that he has the defintive answer to the mysteries of what happens after death, a monopoly on truth, so to speak. Also, I actually used to believe the same thing as Penn did, until I did come across evidence to suggest otherwise (although my first OOBE is hardly "solid" evidence by scientific standards). Now I am sure there is something more than meets the eye. Yet I have no idea what that really is. And anyone who claimed any different would actually have had to die, then be resurrected and remember everything. And I am not talking about NDEs, I am actually talking about being "completely on the other side." Now, that might be the case for those who claim to remember their past lives, but to say that anyone has the definitive answer to it all would raise some eyebrows even here on Astral Pulse, I am sure.

Any thoughts? smiley

Good to be back again, btw.  grin

Probably you didn't mean it the way I read it ... The fact that you don't know something, doesn't entitle you to believe that nobody knows it, or that it can't be known.

We may also use different definitions for some of the words you wrote: atheist, hypocrite, scientific, ...

Penn Jillette seems to be an entertainer. He lives from making people paying attention to him.

I actually forgot to reply about my own experiences with telepathy here in the physical LOL

I have a strong telepathic communication with my sister. I have actually had OBEs where she appears sometimes,  and the next day she tells me that she had a dream about both of us that consist of details from my OBE. Sometimes when we text, we type the same sentences or words at the same time, then we laugh. Or she would send me a text about something and I was thinking abut it a few minutes ago and vice versa.

I also feel a strong connection with a few people here as if we are completing some important mission together in the non-physical at thsi time.

I wonder if from infancy babies are thought that they have certain abilities or they can communicate telepathically so that becomes a natural belief of theirs, as they grow up they can actually develop such abilities. I think this and other limitations perhaps come from the main society beliefs. And I don't argue that this is not a part of our physical nature and strictly a belief, because this life is designed to be limiting anyway for certain purposes, but I also believe that since science has already proven that everything is energy waves and vibrations and nothing is actually solid matter, then by following the logic things like telepathy, telekinesis, healing and other abilities could be considered perfectly normal, however our thoughts need to allow the energy to flow in certain directions in order for them to produce results. Like we have to know how exactly to hold and strike with an axe in order to split a piece of wood in the middle. If we don't know how, it wont happen.

To me, there are as many beliefs and opinions as there are people in their world. Everyone is entitled of an opinion and I don't think judgement or effort to drastically change one's beliefs by force either verbal or physical is acceptable.  I only provide guidance to those who ask for it and have similar to mine beliefs but are looking for something further that someone may have more knowledge of or experience. That's why society naturally form groups of different interests that people with similar ones can gather and discuss. I don't go to atheist forums and start arguments to prove them wrong (and wrong is just my opinion). For the most part religion is not imposed on anyone. It used to be forced in the distant past, but not anymore. So, it is a matter of choice.

I think that the important thing in life regardless what the truth is, is to find happiness and love. If faith or whatever belief brings someone happiness, comfort and joy, than that's all they need. We are not meant to know everything in this life and I believe there is a purpose of that. If knowledge naturally happens and one starts searching for more, they do discover their own truth. Always go with your instincts and don't worry about discovering exactly what's out there. This life is short and sooner or later all of us will find out, so relax, laugh, love and enjoy while the time is given to you here.

My OBEs are very stable and long with much awareness. Through them I have found my own truths. I have had many OBEs that actually validate that at times I have actually perceived things that have happened without my knowledge, but later I find out that what I perceived is what is in the physical world on the other side of the globe for example. Also, life after death, communicating with my deceased father and receiving information that only he knew, that later I found out from other family members that it was true. I have perceived the nature of God, how our the journeys continue after physical reality exit, etc.

However, despite what I have found to be my truth and maybe this is how I will have my journey when my time here ends is very very dependent on the very beiefs that we all have. The non-physical is thought, emotions and beliefs resonsive, so every single individual will experience difefrent things and will have different perceptions there for that exact reason. so I prefer to have positive and joyful beliefs, ones that exceed even my wildest imagination, because this is what I will experience. This very validation are my own APs, always magnificent, beautiful and exciting. Those who have fears may experience monsters at the same time. So, it is in our favor either way to have the best beliefs that are full with joy and love, great expectations. The other beliefs are doing us no favor neithere here in this lifetime, nor in the other if it exists.

Wow, this is such an awesome read. I love your thought patterns and agree so much with what you have said. I'll come back to this later with more.

Funfire, I wonder how you know you have a strong sending ability. I'm assuming you have tested this in PR. Not doubting you at all just curious. As far as sending and receiving, when you send give yourself a pause and wait for something to bounce back. If your message was received you may get a response, if not your own message may bounce back to you, sort of like an echo.

EV, Lightbeam and I were having a conversation recently that sort of pertains to this. I was telling LB how there are some members here I can feel. It wasn't till I came to this forum and began interacting with everyone here that I truly understood that everyone really does have their own signature. I can just about tell 'who' is hitting on me by their feel. (Now I don't mean hitting on me in the traditional PR sense, haha).

You do have your own signature and I could describe it to you if you like, either here or in pm.

I like your suggestion of a thought bubble like in the comics. Only with telepathy it's far more filled out than just that little black and white bubble (for those who wonder). It's like a complete picture that includes feelings and entire concepts. You get way more than just a thought. That's in NP and is totally possible in PR as well just not as spontaneous.

I don't have any super abilities here in PR but am able to sense things others seem unaware of at times. But as a kid I was wide open, my own challenge now is getting back to that state. Harder than it seems.

Hi again!

Seems to me like I made a habit of showing up here once a year during summer, when things get a bit less hectic and I have more time to contemplate. And once the summer is over, a new semester at med school starts, I just don't find the time. Anyone else noticed this pattern with themselves?  grin

Anyway...

Politically, I consider myself libertarian. This might seem like a random statement that doesn't really belong here, but it is the reason why I recently stumbled upon an interview with a famous magician and atheist/skeptic Penn Jillette on a libertarian YT channel. I totally identified with what he said and I was kind of drawn to learn more about his opinions, since I had never really cared about him and thus didn't know much about him, although he is famous. Obviously, I came across his atheist and skeptical opinions as well. What striked me was how similar, sometimes outright identical, his opinions were to mine. Shockingly enough, according to his definition, I would have to describe myself as atheist as well, even though I am REALLY NOT.

In short, he approaches the question of whether there is any afterlife, god, divine being etc. with a simple "I don't know." This stance, he sais, is the most humble and sensible take on the subject. He also says that he doesn't think there is a God, but is open to possibilities and that any open-minded atheist, such as him, would be the first to change his mind if presented with evidence suggesting otherwise.

I could not agree more! It indeed is the only possible stance that makes sense. Only a hypocrite would claim that he has the defintive answer to the mysteries of what happens after death, a monopoly on truth, so to speak. Also, I actually used to believe the same thing as Penn did, until I did come across evidence to suggest otherwise (although my first OOBE is hardly "solid" evidence by scientific standards). Now I am sure there is something more than meets the eye. Yet I have no idea what that really is. And anyone who claimed any different would actually have had to die, then be resurrected and remember everything. And I am not talking about NDEs, I am actually talking about being "completely on the other side." Now, that might be the case for those who claim to remember their past lives, but to say that anyone has the definitive answer to it all would raise some eyebrows even here on Astral Pulse, I am sure.

As I dug deeper, I actually realised that those atheists, that I have despised for their pseudoskepticism and that so many people on Astral Pulse are ranting randi-ing about, are actually doing a great job of exposing religion(s) for what they really are: institutions trying to impose their monopoly of truth on others and trying to enslave them in the process. And doesn't Astral Pulse serve the same purpose, among others? To provide people with a hub where narrow-minded religious belief systems are put to question in order to help and free those, who have a dogmatic fear of astral projection?  Yes, sometimes some of these atheists get carried away and attack not only the stupidity of debunked, yet still widely reverred fundamentalism, but also any idea of "supernatural" at all. Yet, even the Devil himself, Richard Dawkins evil ,said in one interview that while not a believer, he is open to other possibilites.

This might not be a popular opinion here, but I think that I have to reassess my misconceptions about some atheists and the the purpose of the movement as a whole, that I have had. They might actually have a lot in common with my opinions.

Any thoughts? smiley

As far as I know, those are thought forms created by ourselves. We give them "life" and power. We shouldn't ...

 Those entities exist everywhere in the lower astral, we could see them while sleep paralysis just before leaving physical body, the astral vampire scares people to feed and get stronger, if they success they maintain their presence around the traveler, the best way to deal with them is to just ignore their presence so we could progress the OBE.

There really isn't much to add here but will concur with the above posters. EscapeVelocity and baro-san are right on far as my own experiences go. As to the negative energies (beings) you encounter like Hyperdeminsion states those too are fear tests. They can't hurt you but they can scare the bejeesus out of you, ignore them and continue with what you were doing.

It does get easier.

 Somehow there are lot of entities trying to scare us so we get back to our bodies. They are known as astral vampires, they have the ability to scare people [they will represent whatever causes you fear, it could be a gray [ufo/alien]] while dream paralysis, the astral vampires are the cause 95% of people can't do a conscious OBEs.

As far as I know, those are thought forms created by ourselves. We give them "life" and power. We shouldn't ...
