Quote of the Day:
“Access to the holographic reality becomes experientially available when one’s consciousness is freed from it’s dependence on the physical body. When one is freed from the body, one experiences it directly. That is why mystics speak about their visions with such certitude and conviction, while those who haven’t experienced this realm for themselves are left feeling skeptical or indifferent.”
