It's funny that I had written my post to Dallas last night and then saw
this post this morning.  I didn't send it last night because I wanted to
think it over before I post about my personal experiences.  As to your
above comment, I wonder what it is in me that causes inordinate fear of
astral travel that used to come so easily to me.  I've pretty much snuffed
any of that ability out of me due to my fears.
