your absolutely right, I may not fully understand your position, but I can see you fully understand mine, in my view anything that draws you in so much to the detriment of the life around you is dangerous, the OBE's and astral shennanigans are in my view carrots to lure folk in.
The thing is Harry Ji, I was just 8 years old when the OBEs started to happen, entirely on their own. Prior to that I had no idea even what an OBE was. So I was not lured into anything. Certainly you can't say that a child of 8 is into any dangerous shenanigans just looking for a trippy experience!? For me, when I was young, OBEs were just something that I did naturally... I didn't go looking for them, they just happened on their own. So that kind of blows the carrot theory out of the water... And the experiences were never a detriment...in fact they were the opposite, because I felt so close to everyone and everything all my life, I never hesitate to help people. Additionally, I find I have a preety good intuition and empathic ability... I can usually judge people's feelings pretty well, in fact it's almost like I can almost feel it with them. So when someone is hurt, I have actually been close to tears myself and feeling their pain with them...even those I don't know. This helps me to be a better person physically, while also being aware that everyone are really one, connected, and feel closer to Waheguru Ji. How can that be detrimental at all? It's not even something I asked for in this life.
