I had some time to read portions of this. It's encouraging to note 
that the author does not believe that astral projection will help one 
penetrate the higher mental and buddhic planes. Astral projection is 
mainly for travel to the astral and lower mental planes.

Why would anyone want to travel to the astral plane? After being in 
the astral and lower mental planes for over 38 years, I can honestly 
say it isn't that great. Too much maya, glamor and illusion for this 

One interesting note about the author is his mention of having 
migraine headaches which astral projection did not alleviate. 
Migraine headaches are one indication that the astral projector may 
find it difficult to penetrate the higher mental and buddhic planes. 
Clearance of the mental body will remove the cause behind the 
migraine headaches.

Travel to the higher mental and buddhic planes is possible. Even 
though the author has never experienced it, in theory and 
application, it is possible. Buddhist monks have known how to do 
this for centuries through spiritual practices such as meditation and 
contemplation. However, meditation does have its own unique pitfalls.
