Rene Magritte and J H M Whiteman
Type of spiritual experience
The Mystical Life - J H M Whiteman
While awake in the body, lying on my back in bed, I found myself consciously dissociated and looking at a point on the ceiling - that is the duplicate ceiling. The wish to pin-point the attention so that the details might be steadily observed, without strain or fixation, led to an effect like the focusing of the eyes. After a few seconds there was a change and I became fully conscious of floating in a separated form apparently above the physical body.
