I'm sure to many people the "out-of-body" experience sounds pretty odd, but if you could have an experience out-of-the body just think - you'll lose the fear of death.
That's why at age 13 or so I became pre-occupied with the idea. I knew there had to be more to life and I wanted proof that there was more. I came acrosss a book on Astral Projection and tried to have an experience with teh techniques in the book. I ws unsuccessful until I went to learn TM Meditation. The first time I sat down to meditate I was out of my body.
My meditation teacher told me not to do that again, just go back and quiet my mind. WHAT??? I JUST HAD THE SIGNIFICANCE OF LIFE AFTER DEATH AND YOU WANT ME TO STOP!!! I couldn't believe it.
Soon after I found a book on Eckankar which explained Soul Travel (way beyond astral Projection) and described the inner worlds with this chart...
