DREAMING WHILE AWAKE --- THE TWILIGHT WORLD OF MIND TRAVEL

       When you write you cast your mind back to the happenings of another time, & if you focus you'll remember completely, You absorb the feel of the place and of the person you knew then. It's a self-hypnosis in reality. And it works.
             Casting my mind back to my early days in Jamaica, if I think of the vegetation I can see every blade of glass.
              The hoodoo, the voodoo in this is a phrase such as:

        REMEMBER TO FORGET,
         BECAUSE YOUR UNCONSCIOUS MIND
          WON'T FORGET TO REMEMBER       

  I've forgotten the name of the brilliant psychologist who taught me this...But he used to work in sports medicine. Reducing pain through the art of self-hypnosis.
        You can use self-hypnosis along with meditation,  SITTING,
to coax the one universal common Mind
to travel to distant places that are deep within.
At first I thought I had to have actually been to a place before I 'remembered' it... But this isn't true. You can intuit other places and travel there when you are in the deep flux of sitting.
I also call this DREAMING WHILE AWAKE.
             No one believes that these fields are accessible to me, but they are. If you wish to travel in this way, it can be done. Sometimes you have to feel out past lives, if you believe in such things.
             As zen master Philip Kapleau said:

THERE IS NO ONE IN THIS ROOM THAT
HASN'T LIVED A THOUSAND TIMES.

And since he paid me a visit the other night when I was sitting here,  I believe him. I felt his presence. And I'm not mistaken about such things much any more. 

               You don't have to cast your mind back always when you write. You can also absorb yourself in the present moment. This might even be a better way to write.

               We're talking about the twilight world
here. And I must admit I love the place.
