I tried to go to bed early. Instead, my head hit the pillow and I began to think the old thoughts that I had thought I had tucked away with the help of a goetic spirit. I asked him what the problem was and he told me I changed the rules. I told him to line up with my HGA and my HGA wants me to deal with this a different way. So, of to my HGA I go and without a doubt the news was confirmed. I have one thing to say about that. Fuck.
My other thought tonight was I wonder if I'm focusing on the wrong thing. Is this astral projection stuff necessary?
Lon DuQuette once told me that people would start asking me questions and that I should write the brilliant things down because, "You'll never be this smart again." He called it an Ask Bob list. Odd, no one calls me Bob. Lon never calls me that either. That was a few years back. I have three things on the list and I doubt two of them. The one that stuck is something I said to a fellow traveler in the Work who declared he knew his issue and went on to explain. I said, "You know but you don't know that you don't know." There is a vast difference between that first intellectual realization and making in real in one's spirit. My journey to Hod was like that for me. I have known the map for a long time but I've never known the territory. Now that I've been there, I know what I don't know and I believe that what I don't know is very important. Travel those realms I must.
On the other hand, maybe it is too soon.
On the other hand, maybe I should revert back to the Stavish lucid dream techniques. I was making progress there and then come back to waking astral travel.
On the other hand, no wait, that would be three hands.
