sped up and away I waved goodbye looking down at their upturned
faces and waving hands. One last time I saw our beautiful home among
the flowers and trees. For a moment I wished I had not made the
decision. I cupped both hands around my eyes to try to keep that
view a few seconds longer.
'We sped over the mountains so
familiar to me. Off in the distance I could see Teutonia, the great
Temples of Learning which had been my home away from home.
'I could see the gold sand of the
beach where I played and loved to sink my toes, and the sparkling
sea that I could always hear in the distance from our house. All of
these things I took in for the last time, from the sky as I had
never seen and appreciated them before.
'As we entered the clouds I pulled
myself from the side of the ship, took a deep sigh, and realized all
of this was forever gone in this lifetime. I prepared myself for my
new life and put my mind to thinking about these things, and about
what my uncle would be telling me. The ride to Sahasra-dal-Kanwal
was swift, and it was near the Mountain of Light that we landed.
'I waited while my uncle proceeded
to meet the Master and receive permission for using the special
zone. Only the spiritual travelers, their initiates, and those who
are at least one thousand years old on the Astral Plane have the
privilege of meeting with this Master. It is easy to understand how
people who live such long lives in this city can believe they have
reached the ultimate Heaven.
'We were escorted on foot to the
special zone. I am not allowed to reveal its exact location. Few on
Earth know of the existence of such a zone and it is better that it
remain secret. Almost anything can be brought down to the Physical
Plane through this zone, such as gold and powerful inventions of the
'A greedy person could misuse this
zone for his own purpose. This is the same zone through which a
person travels upward after death of the physical body. Here karmic
debts are weighed and the individual is then placed on the plane he
has earned in a spiritual sense. Within this zone we entered a
special room, a round room with blue lights so bright that I could
barely see anything. All of us, my uncle, the other man, and I sat
cross-legged on the floor and chanted a secret mantra. Mantras are
words which are very powerful instruments on any plane because they
have to do with sound current (vibrations), the basic fabric of all
creation. On the Astral Plane we normally chant to raise our
vibrations for Soul Travel. Now we were doing just the opposite -
lowering our vibrations to manifest a physical body.
'For a person who is totally at
comfort living in the astral body, manifesting a physical body is a
shocking experience. I had the same feeling of distress and
discomfort that most people have in leaving the Astral Plane. The
whole experience is not easy to explain.
'A few minutes after chanting this
secret word with our eyes closed, it happened. The world seemed to
cave in all at once. I remember a brilliant white flash and
fireworks inside of me, a pssht sound and a ringing in my ears, and
a curious jerking motion of my body, as if all my muscles were
tensed at once. All of this happened in the same single moment of
shock. I felt dizzy and disoriented and could barely breathe, and my
whole body felt uncomfortably warm. Then I realized that the shell
enveloping me was the physical body!
'I opened my eyes. We were sitting
in the grass near a small shiny metallic, circular vehicle, that was
shaped likeone of
your saucers upside down, and had a dome on top. Off in the
distance, miles away, was the city of Retz on the Physical Plane of
'It was frightening, this being
inside of a physical body. I continued having trouble breathing
because I had never done it before. And instead of the wide vision
of my astral eyes, I was looking through two little holes, my new
physical eyes. To help you understand how miserable I felt, imagine
yourself suddenly being encased in a
suit of armor feeling restricted and clumsy, and knowing there
is no way out.
'When I tried speaking for the
first time my voice sounded foreign to me. I told my uncle I didn't
like it, this being in a physical body. He laughed. He said that I
had to grow accustomed to it. How was I supposed to grow accustomed
to something like this, I wondered aloud? Odin replied that a person
can get used to anything.
"But you have to turn your head
to see!" I protested. I was not accustomed to turning my head in
order to see because on the Astral Plane we have an awareness of
what is all around us. We also have an ability to change our form
and appearance. Here I was stuck in a body that was unchangeable
except for the facial expression.
'My uncle agreed that it was
limited, that I would have to learn to keep my balance and walk
properly. Walking turned out to be most awkward. I was used to
gliding or simply appearing wherever I wanted to be. But the
physical body did not work that way. It had to be moved inch by
inch, step by step. I was the only one having much trouble getting
up and stretching my new legs. After all, I was by physical
standards only a seven year old child.
'The Venus physical (at this upper
density) looks much like Earth's Nevada and Arizona. In the distance
I was able to see mountains and interesting vegetation. The weather
seemed dry and hot but not at all uncomfortable here. Retz was in a
secluded valley here just as on the Astral Plane. My uncle had
explained a few days earlier during our journey through the astral,
that Retz is a city existing fully on two planes at once. The
physical city is the spiritual of the physical planet. The astral
city of Retz existed first and the physical city is a duplicate,
while in the Great Transition the reverse happened. The people
recreated cities on the Astral Plane as duplicates of the physical
cities they had left. Retz is truly unique.
'It is unique not only in this
respect. The city is covered by a climate protection dome of
approximately 80 kilometers in diameter. Thus is has already existed
as early as the physical Venus still looked very much like Earth's
desert regions. Retz is hidden deep in a valley. As the region is
covered by hot gases, only the city's geographical location and its
climate protection dome allow it to exist. The dome is not
transparent but made of disguising materials which make it appear
like being a part of the dreary wasteland of the physical Venus.
This is why Retz cannot be discovered by earthly spacecraft, even
though it physically exists on Venus.
My uncle and the other man and I
tested our new limbs. I noticed that Odin had not changed in form,
but his body was less radiant. In fact, everything around us lacked
the wonderful quality of being luminous.
I was not sure how I myself
looked. I would not be seeing a mirror until I landed on Earth, but
I surely did feel clumsy and heavy. With my first steps I felt as if
I was walking in a suit of lead.
Before we walked toward the ship,
my uncle told me about my special gift. My memento of Venus was to
be a sample of the plants and flowers that grew nearby in this
physical level of Venus. Together we collected about two
dozen of the most interesting ones and prepared them
for transport to Earth. These together with my ring and jewellery
were my only possessions.
Taking me by the hand, Uncle Odin
led me to the Venusian "Convoy" (the saucer-shaped spacecraft).
This was my first experience with the convoy at times seen in
Earth's skies. On Venus alone there are several models of this space
ship, all of which run in the same way. Advanced planets have their
own versions and there are many sizes and shapes.
The ship I was about to enter
looked very much like two saucers fitted together with the bottoms
up. A raised glasslike dome on top housed a coil, and just below and
all around, were small portholes. The ship had three metallic
hemi-spheres evenly spaced underneath.
The outer surface of the ship was
made of a specially treated titanium material so that it can
withstand the friction and heat of atmospheric flight. Though it was
very shiny and metallic-looking, it was not like the titanium to be
seen on Earth. It had the translucent quality of fiberglass.
We entered through a circular
opening in the lower half of the craft. This door really amazed me.
My uncle showed us how it opened and closed. First a tiny hole
appeared in the surface where there was no sign of any door or
opening, not even a seam. The opening grew larger and larger much
like the shutter in a camera, until it was large enough for a tall
Venusian to walk through unimpeded. When it closed, the circular
opening became smaller and smaller until it disappeared, leaving no
trace of an opening only a blank surface. My uncle tried to explain
to me scientifically how it worked, but I didn't understand. It had
something to do with the separation of molecules.
Inside he showed me where to sit.
In the very center of the ship was a pole several feet in diameter
reaching from floor to the glass dome
above. Surrounding it on the floor was a big lens, through which I
was able to see the ground during the flight. All around the lens,
at intervals, were curved cushioned benches for the passengers. Here
I sat down with our companion pilot while my uncle took a seat at
the control panel, which was opposite the wall where the entrance
had appeared and disappeared. Uncle Odin started the ship. There was
a low hum.
I imagine my uncle had been
trained to run this sort of ship before we left Teutonia as he
seemed to know what he was doing. I was not very observant at the
time because my attention was on my new body and how uncomfortable
it felt. I do remember seeing all kinds of glowing screens on the
walls of the circular compartment with flashing colours,
