While studying Raja Yoga I would meditate using deep-breathing, marijuana and
meditation music. On this night, I was seated in the Lotus position and in the
was suddenly aware of my rapid rise
into deep space. At first this seems unsteady. My person conditioned to science
fought with my reality of sitting in the Lotus in deep space. I became aware of
a warm friendly voice behind me.
The voice told me to relax and observe anything I wanted. I could see all the
planets in our area very clearly, without normal distance distortion.
was very happy. The voice told me I could have the answer to any question about
any subject. I was content to sit and observe all that was to see. Time passed
20 minutes maybe but I never asked a question. I knew at that moment in time
upon my death, I would gain all knowledge and was happy filled with joy.
just as it began I was transport at great speed back to my living room. Sitting
on the floor in front of a velvet couch.
I stood up and turned a light. there on a pillow the perfect outline of my pose
was raised upon the velvet. Later I became a Christian and put aside this event.
