Understanding the Self Through Astral Projection

In my journey of self discovery I have studied many different forms of Self exploration. This usually was a masculine practice of stilling the mind, emptying the thoughts as completely as possible so as to rest in the witness position and watch the feminine movement of life force untainted by the distortion of intention, expectation and opinion. Although this is a great way to understand the difference between the witness and that which is being witnessed, it did not help me to understand how they function together to create what I have come to know reality.

Meditation

Taking the unknown and making it known is the human experience. We do this through our labeling process which comes from the process of comparison that we have been talking about; the purpose of any meditative
technique is to reverse or undo this process, to take the known and make it unknown (putting your attention equally on every point of awareness {masculine} or retracting your attention completely and dissipating into
the energetic movement that is created as each point let go moves to find its counterpart {feminine}). This is why most spiritual teachers will insist
that enlightenment is a process of letting go as opposed to finding or grasping as grasping is the human experience we are attempting to undo.
