A description of the experience

quoted in David Scott Rogo - Leaving the Body: A Complete Guide to Astral Projection

This observation is via Dr Raynor Johnson.  One of Johnson's correspondents supplied him with the following account of an OBE- experience:

It was on a night in October about eleven P.M, I suddenly found myself out of the body floating over a Highland moor, in a body as light or lighter than air. There was a wood at the side of the moor and the clouds were drifting past the moon and a cool fresh wind was flowing. I found that I didn't mind the wind as l should have done had I been in my physical body, because I was at one with it. The life in the wind and the clouds and the trees was within me also, flowing into me and through me, and I offered no resistance to it. I was filled with glorious life.  All the time, in the margin of my consciousness, I knew where my earthly body was, and that I could return to it instantly if danger threatened. The experience may have lasted a few minutes or a few seconds, I cannot tell-for I was outside time. I came back greatly invigorated and refreshed, and very much alive. I remember thinking that if this was what the so-called dead experience, how much more vitally alive they are than we are here.
