Thank you for the information, VirtualBrain! It is very valuable indeed. If I ever manage to reach those states of mind I will most certainly consider it. But I guess for me this road is long...
It is certainly discomforting to know that in such places (NPMR), the mere intent will decide what you will get. I hope that i will not have some disturbing experiences.
Still my curiosity and fascination seems to be stronger than my abstract fear of such exploration journeys. For now.
Your welcome, but you don't really need to reach any particular state of mind, all states of mind are just that, states of mind. You are defining yourself as your mind, when you create a definition about something...So It Shall Be. Wether you know it or not you are more than your mind. You Create, what you believe. Why limit yourself? The road is long if you define it to be so. Is your internet to travel a long road? If so, to where?
You may define your ability to create yourself as discomforting if you wish but it works this way in any and every reference frame you are capable of finding yourself. Some, such as PMR can to seem to take a long time. Others seem to produce instantaneous manifestation. The amount of perceived time is irrelevant. You ARE creating your experience, through your intent, with your definitions, your beliefs, everywhere and always, forever. If you have Joyous experiences or Disturbing experiences it is always YOU who is experiencing and defining the experience.
Defining yourself as curious and fascinated are relatively positive definitions. Stay with the positive point of view as often as you find useful, and as long as it serves your intent.
So the question is. Who are you and what is your intent?
Know Thy Self! :)
