Quote of the Week 21 - How the Soul Leaves the Body

Different methods of how the soul leaves the body either when the body is asleep or when the person is meditating:

The first method is the Roll-over Technique. When the body is sleeping, the soul simply rolls over and out of the body.

The second technique is the Swinging or Pendulum Technique. The soul swings to the left and then swings to the right until it swings out of the body.

The third technique is the Inner Sound Technique. The inner sound becomes extremely loud and the inner consciousness is pulled out of the body through the sound, by listening to the inner sound. The sound is like a very loud buzzing sound, louder than the sound of a jet plane engine.

The fourth technique is the Spiraling Technique. The soul just simply spirals out of the body. The Inner Sound Technique is usually accompanied by the Spiraling Technique.

From The Origin of Modern Pranic Healing and Arhatic Yoga by Master Choa Kok Sui

DIMENSIONS: Navigating the Spiritual Spectrum

Grounded in the traditions of Torah and Veda, Steven J. Gold takes us on an oceanic tour of the depth and breadth of spiritual consciousness. Sharing personal stories and insights into various traditional scriptures as examples, he urges us to adopt a spiritual worldview, to “ponder infinity, awake and arise,” to “find your inspiration and follow it.”

“The chapters…are records of what happens when Steve’s right mind, and heart, are given full freedom to wander where they wish. As discoveries and correlations are made, his well-trained left mind and sharp wit give his observations shape and form…” – Brother Shankara, Resident Minister, Vedanta Center of Atlanta

“Universal Ice Cream: Dive deep into Steve’s wonderful book to help find your favorite flavor on the Spiritual Spectrum.” – Rabbi Mitch Cohen, Spiritual Leader, Congregation Shalom B’Harim, Dahlonega, GA

“Steven J. Gold’s Dimensions is an exploration of spirituality from the inside out. If you are looking for a guide through the pathless land of truth, read this book.” – Rabbi Rami Shapiro, author of The World Wisdom Bible
