Author Quotes

There are many other consciousness growth centers throughout what you know as the physical universe.

There is a special "energy" called "loosh" which is precious and wanted by some somewhere. One of them who collect this energy created a place to grow this energy: The earth. The evolution that has taken place on earth is just modifications this creator did to get more and higher quality of loosh. This was provided by animals who are fighting, during a fight for life, and when ending a life span, loosh can be harvested. But the most loosh can be gotten from the humans; the creator had implanted a part of his own into these humans. When they have feelings like lonelyness, desire, parent's love, grief etc., the highest quality distillated loosh can be harvested, which is by far better than any other raw loosh.

There is no beginning, there is no end. There is only change. There is no teacher, there is no student, there is only remembering. There is no good, there is no evil, there is only expression. There is no union, there is no sharing, there is only one. There is no joy, there is no sadness, there is only love. There is no greater, there is no lesser, there is only balance. There is no stasis, there is no entropy, there is only motion. There is no wakefulness, there is no sleep, there is only being. There is no limit, there is no chance, there is only a plan.

This technology can produce a beam of energy, which is first translated as light, through which the human energy essence can travel back and forth, information can flow, and the operators of such technology can enter time-space earth environments. Once properly perceived, they can endow the human mind with the ability to create (enhance?) such a beam of energy.

You are being human at your own option in the strictest sense.

Advanced souls know that they cannot change the system and they don't wish to. They are content to enjoy themselves in the Earth Life System and the only influence they exert is to maximize their experience.

Honesty is the best policy because there can be nothing less.

The power of emotion, ?the driving force, the creative energy which motivates human thought and action.?

After waiting for what seemed only a few seconds, there was a tremendous surge, a movement, an energy in that familiar spatial blackness, and there began for me an entire new era in my out-of-body activities. Since that night, my non-physical activities have been almost totally due to this procedure.

Human consciousness is a manifestation of the dynamic energy already referred to. As a highly complex vibrational pattern it responds to and acts upon similar patterns from external sources.

All humans move into the out-of-body state during sleep.

I am more than my physical body. Because I am more than physical matter, I can perceive that which is greater than the physical world. Therefore, I deeply desire to Expand, to Experience; to Know, to Understand; to Control, to Use such greater energies and energy systems as may be beneficial and constructive to me and to those who follow me. Also, I deeply desire the help and cooperation, the assistance, the understanding of those individuals whose wisdom, development and experience are equal or greater than my own. I ask their guidance and protection from any influence or any source that might provide me with less than my stated desires.

All patterns of consciousness are nonphysical and hence not dependent on time-space. ?In short, like it or not, you?re going to continue to do and be after you can no longer hang in there physically.?

It was then, lying there in the darkness, listening to the whippoorwill and the night crickets outside, the soft earth-scented breeze flowing in through the open window, feeling the hot warmth of our little dog Steamboat sleeping contentedly against the soles of my feet, the even breathing of Nancy sleeping beside me?that I felt the wetness of my cheeks and a few remaining tears in my eyes. And I remembered. Not much, but I remembered! I sat up in bed, wanting to jump up and shout in incomprehensible joy. Steamboat raised his head and looked at me curiously, then dropped back. My wife shifted position as I sat up, then gradually resumed her even breathing rhythm. I would not wake her, she needed her rest and recharge.

Always know and remember that you are more than your physical body.

It's a predator world by design--and it's a superb teaching machine.

As you become relaxed and start to drift off into sleep hold your mental attention on something, anything, with your eyes closed. Once you can hold the borderland state indefinitely without falling asleep, you have passed the first stage.

Monroe is granted a powerful visionary experience that he understands as revealing the source of the love energy. This experience leaves him with ?the indescribable joy of knowing only that it did take place,? and the realization that ?the echoes would reverberate in me throughout eternity, whatever my eternity was.?

Conclusions. The following conclusions were reached during this period, (i) There does exist a Second Body interspersed or in conjunction with the physical body. (2) The Second Body can move and act independently of the physical body. (3) These movements and actions can be made partially under the control of the conscious mind. (4) Some sensory inputs in the Second Body register as they do in the physical, others are beyond translation. (5) Some movements in the Second Body occur in identical space-time to that of the physical counterpart.

Most important, let the Human Mind of you seek out, experience, and add to your flow of consciousness where and when you encounter it.

Consciousness is focused energy.

Reality is that which is perceived.

Emotion is the key to and the driving force underlying every thought and action in human existence.

Relax, breathe evenly?the beginning of differential phasing?the fading of physical input as phase separation deepens and nonphysical sensory mechanisms begin to take over?this is much the same as going to sleep but without the loss of consciousness. The paradox attached to such vital energy, emotion as you call it, is the opportunity for growth it provides and the simultaneous possibility of stasis and retrogression. Control and direction thereof thus becomes a prime purpose in the evolving human experience. Understanding and comprehension is the resultant and flows without effort. At no point is the goal to repress or suppress such energy. Instead, it is enhanced when directed and focused into the channels for which it was originally designed.

Emotion is what makes the game seem so wild, but it is the game, the one game in which all other games are played. The others feed score to the big game in the form of emotional energy. The big game is to control and develop this emotional energy to its most effective condition, which is vaguely set by humans as love, until we graduate. The more we score, the more fun it becomes.
