Yram - The invisible universe is formless
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Practical Astral projection - Yram
In order to understand what follows, it will be useful if I now give some general observations on several years of study.
These worlds upon which so many hypotheses have been built, these universes which have excited human imagination to the highest pitch, surpass, in their simplicity, anything that man could invent in the way of the marvellous and the complex. The invisible universe is formless. It reduces itself to an atmosphere impregnated with energy under a variable pressure.
The Human Being is formless and is also but an electric atmosphere endowed with oscillating energy. The only difference existing between man and the universe is that collection of psychological factors, represented by consciousness....................
..................The substance of which our universe is made varies from a state of extreme density, which may be designated as "matter," to that … essence to which we give the name of "force." The state which we call "matter" is energy curbed by time and space into a minimum of activity. That which we term "force" is a maximum of instantaneous activity. The steps between these two extremes of the cosmic ladder are numberless, and it is easy to imagine the infinite quantity of individual states which must compose it.............
.................The substance of these vast moving waves has the appearance of an atmosphere which varies from the deepest darkness, passing through all the intermediary shades of grey, to radiant clarity.
In descending towards matter, the negative aspect of energy, the grey atmosphere becomes duller and darker. One experiences the sensation of a substance which becomes steadily thicker. This increase in density is irksome to bear, and it is with difficulty that one can move about in it. The impressions which are received follow the same gradations. We experience the illusion of being oppressed, of breathing with difficulty. A general malaise invades us, the consciousness becomes worried and soon the impression becomes definitely painful. In these dark states one sees phosphorescent points which move about in all directions.
When we go towards the positive side of energy, i.e. the negative side of matter, the opacity diminishes. We come into a sort of grey mist, like a cloudy sky. As we rise, the mist becomes thinner, and soon its place is taken by a luminous clarity. A blaze of light, like that of the sun at midday, lights up the atmosphere. Watching carefully, we notice on all sides an equal intensity….The corresponding sensations are; a gentle warmth which pervades the body we are using; a feeling of exceptional well being….; consciousness itself experiences an increasing happiness. It allows itself to drift into a sweet quietude, into an ever-deepening state of peace. It is filled with a more vibrant, more joyous confidence. As we climb higher this peace increases in a surprising manner. In order not to disturb the concentrated state of the atmosphere, we no longer dare to think
