Sumi is a remarkable woman. Some will look at her dusky beauty. Some will see her impish smile and see the sparkle in her eyes. Some will see beyond and see the strength beneath which says don't mess with me. Some will see how good she is with her daughter and not be surprised that she is a caring teacher with depth and compassion. Some will see the dignity and grace she carries herself as a single mom. Some may have felt her other side, when a headache, stomach pain disappears with her touch, as she is a profound healer. Some peeking into her home will find the eternal Goddess enshrined.

There is a great depth and profound beauty to Sumi. Everytime we meet her we are surprised. She reveals something new. A new facet.

But because she is modest, it will take years before you begin to sense the depth and soaring heights of her being.

Now we know Sumi for... 14 years... off and on... as we were talking... we were talking about Buffy's astral shennaigans when she spoke of her own.

One day, a few years ago, she was resting when she found herself float above the bed. Lightly she went to the next room. Out of the house, into a world where trees nodded a little strangely. After a long excursion she returned to her room... and... hold your breath... hovered over her body... 6 inches above her body she could see her face... sleeping eyes closed... and then... whoops it hit her and she was back inside of herself.

Now the implications of it are enormous.

Not all who sleep are resting. When we are asleep, we can be most active.

We can walk around without our bodies. We do not need our bodies to travel. We can go across the world without putting on our shoes.

We do not need eyes to see. We have other eyes.

Our bodies are good things, but they are like our homes... they are not our world. In our garage are cars which we can travel with.

Jailors can lock the door, but not the spirit. People can erect walls, but we can pass through them.

We are not our bodies. And so when death comes for us, we will not be unduly alarmed.

We do not have to look into a dusty text to believe... We have to look at ourselves... We have to allow ourselves to look at the fullness of ourselves... We have to trust...

Now, Sumi at one point in time had a huge slew of experiences. They became so vehement she felt the anchorings of herself be shaken... So she cried out and asked for them to stop. And someone heard. You may call that the Devi or the infinite self... and the experiences went from mountain peaks to hillocks...

In Ogilvy & Mather, the ad agency that I Tarun once worked with, was a brilliant poster with an inspired headline... It said, a rubberband once stretched never returns to its original size.

Sumi's world has been stretched. Our world has been stretched.

Living in a world where things have been stretched is another thing. The elastic of our mind's underwear is looser.

Sumi is a teacher. A good one. An honest one. She teaches children well. But she will probably never be able to teach children in school, the real and most profound truths. That we are not gravity bound. That we are not Death's slaves.

The Lessons of Astral Travel

1} We all travel astrally when we sleep. You just have to know it and use it. But know this, there are dangers of conscious astral travel. But then the damnation of having astral wings and not using it is worse. Of being land-locked in life is worse.

2} We are deathless. We are not our bodies. We will not die when we die. This is not just idle talk in an earlier Tickle we shared with you the case of a lady who lost her fear of death when she travelled astrally.

3} We are not citizens of Earth. The joys and treasures of of life are greater than our conception of life.

4} We are free. The body can be imprisoned not our spirit.

5} We can touch without touching. Space cannot belittle us. but there are responsibilities too.

6} We must respect our body, for our bodies conceal greater bodies, greater mysteries.

7} It's humbling, remember Buffy a dog travelled and travels beyond our so called human greats.
