>:-) Hi - that Soul travel question I wonder about sometimes is if the Soul 
sometimes goes off by itself - travelling throughout Heaven - leaving the 
Physical body, and leaving the Astral body still within the Physical, and 
also leaving the Mental body within the Physical - in other words, just the 
Causal body by itself, travelling around? - still in touch with the lower 
bodies through the Sutratma? So this could be done while we are awake on the 
Physical, and we might not even know it was going on.

Another question is, if this type of Soul travel goes on, then what about the 
body of the Soul on the Buddhic Plane, and the body of the Soul on the lower 
levels of the Atmic Plane - Leadbeater saying that the Soul has bodies on 
these Planes as well as on the Causal Plane - do these bodies also travel 
around with the Causal body during it's travels? - the Buddhic Plane Soul and 
Atmic Plane Soul probably still being asleep even when the Soul (Causal Plane 
Soul) is highly developed and awake.

And I have never actually experienced any of the higher Spatial dimensions - 
I said that I was convinced that they are a reality in my original post, but 
actually I shouldn't have said that - although I strongly suspect that they 
are a reality - g'Day! >:-) Grounge
