It is known that tranquilizers as well as some antidepressants can save a person from some fears. Whether the use of such things is a way to achieve a low-entropy consciousness, because we are supress some fears or lower their level a little?
Let's look for a moment at an extreme example. My mother, upon realizing she was near death, said she was afraid and, was filled with fear. Just let that sink in for a moment. We know from the thread on reincarnation that fear can impact the transition after death. I requested that she be administered a dose of morphine to eliminate the fear.
The reduction or elimination of fear initiates the removal of the veil obscuring your being level awareness. Based on the theory, it is likely she had a smooth transition as opposed to shock and fear upon leaving the body. It is no secret that fear prevents the open exploration of NPMR.
The key is to get to the root of the fear. Rationalize, analyze but most importantly solve it and eliminate it. Do you have a wart on your nose and you fear what people will think? Stop worrying about what people think. You get the picture.
