Quote from: ThaomasOfGreyIn the past I have absorbed material, possibly from Tom Campbell, suggesting that we are banned from the astral by default and require a good reason to have that lifted.
Quote from: ThaomasOfGreyI have come to believe, perhaps in a sense my mind is poisoned, to think that my reasons for pursuing astral projection aren't good enough to make the cut.
Quote from: ThaomasOfGrey on January 21, 2018, 22:17:11Brilliant replies guys, I think I can let go of this belief trap now.
Quote from: Nameless on January 31, 2018, 01:19:41I think will power is overrated. Once a person has 'that moment' no matter what it is; that is losing weight, learning to play an instrument, ap, whatever that's when it becomes possible. It's that AHA moment when it suddenly makes sense, then it all falls into place and you don't even need willpower, you have something better. Personally I just call it the magic moment. LOL
Quote from: astralmThe idea of belief being bad or good or something you can let go of to me is just silly.
Quote from: astralmTom Campbell himself says if there is a scale of 0-1 and 0 is for sure something is false and 1 is something is true, nothing can ever be 0 or 1, which means basically however you view the world is your belief because you never can be 100% sure you are right.
Quote from: astralmYou can be open-minded to your experiences as supporting or opposing your belief, but the idea that you can somehow remove belief is just not logically possible to me. Instead of trying to replace beliefs with "knowns", what you should do is recognize belief for what it is and be open to the fact your beliefs may be incorrect and need to be replaced with another belief that better fits your experiences. But be aware you aren't replacing it with absolute truth or "knowledge" just a better belief for where you are at that itself probably will need to be replaced with another belief. Simply accept belief for what it is.
Quote from: baro-sanAs in many other cases, the need for willpower is widely stated, but misunderstood and misapplied, hence not fully effective. People embrace slogans like "1% inspiration, 99% perspiration", "no pain, no gain", "just do it", etc., all concentrating on doing, on action, while success is actually brought primarily by thoughts, beliefs, and focus.In astral projection your will is very important, but not in the sense of willpower, but in the sense of wanting it, not fearing it, while moving your focus away from physical (including your body), and opening a pathway to your subconscious.
Quote from: astralm on February 05, 2018, 02:49:50@SelskiYou stating that if you look outside and see a squirrel in the garden that the squirrel being there is a 1. But how can you prove this? Is it not possible that you could be hallucinating the squirrel. Well maybe then you ask someone else and they say yeah I see the squirrel, how do you know you are not hallucinating them as well. Every theory and every law is based on an assumption. The less assumptions and more solid your assumptions appear, the better the theory. But everything starts with a belief that cannot be proved, it must be assumed. Even the most basic things such as that we exist cannot actually be proven, and have been tackled and questioned by many philosphers over the years.Sorry if this is not making any sense, it is not the easiest thing to explain. Basically it boils down to people thinking things are 1, like a squirrel you see in your backyard being real when really it isn't a 1 it is a .9999999999, we just don't like to admit to the fact that the world has uncertainty and so we ignore it. Everything starts with belief, It makes sense I exist and so I believe I exist even though I can't actually prove I do and from there I can explain things as facts, but really the facts are always based on some sort of assumption.About your first point on letting go of belief such as Santa Claus being real. Yes I let go of beliefs, but they are replaced by other beliefs. You aren't eliminating belief in your life, you simply are replacing something you no longer believe is true with something you either believe is true or believe might be true.
