The cosmonauts aboard the Salyut 7 space station were having a routine day on the 155th day of their mission when suddenly they were blinded by bright orange light from every portal. All of the crew reported seeing the same thing that day. Each one described seeing seven enormous winged beings outside of the space station. Each entity appeared to be 90 feet in height with calm smiling faces.
A original short story by Justin Phillips. Original artwork by Shaun Power. “Clayton Garner sprung from his bed, tripping over the retro alarm clock which he must have knocked across the room in fervent kicks of a wild dream. The details were fading fast, though he could clearly remember flying through swirling vortexes in outer space with some red-haired beauty– of course none of that mattered now that he was running late for the first day at his new job.”
As we explore the various highways and biways of the esoteric teachings that guide our inner journeys, we eventually come to the notion that some souls are ‘young’ and others ‘mature’ or ‘old’. The distinctions manifest in a number of ways. One is derived from the discussions arising from life-between-life regressions where some recall careful planning with guides for the upcoming incarnation, while others tend to rush in enthusiastically without much forethought, often hell bent on resuming a life dramatically cut short by violence, accident or addiction. The feeling of being denied one’s life experiences through trauma and tragedy can be overwhelming, often dominating the ‘bliss’ potentials of astral life.

While some of us find citizenship to be “surplus to requirements” for the pressing business of career and family, and others are so disgusted with the fabrications and deceptions of politics, religion and big business they happily drop out of any such commitment, some seek to be citizens of their society, however seemingly corrupted, striving to be informed and actively engaged with the issues and challenges of the day. Others seek to be citizens of the planet, embracing the ideals of multiculturalism, brotherhood and internationalism, hoping to replace hunger with plenty and strife with harmony. And yet others strive, in one way or another, to be citizens of the soul, that amorphous enigma inhabiting all forms with the sentient spark we have come to call consciousness.
Many of us have found our way to the inner journey of spirit after either rejecting conventional religious structures and practice, finding them self contradictory and unsatisfying, or seeing that the scientific materialism we grew up with failed to explain our personal experiences with the mystical and mysterious situations that repeatedly irritated our culture’s assumptions and norms…
I remember my first, very vivid, lucid dream. It was really hard to accept for me at the time. The first instance that I remember was walking through our house around the age of 14-15, maybe. It started with me, just all of a sudden, walking through the house and wondering why it was so bright. Inside the house it was brighter than the brightness of a normal moon. The sky outside appeared brighter through the windows than a normal moon too. Everything seemingly had a glow to it.
As human beings we sometimes struggle to find meaning and purpose in our lives. Why are we here in this lifetime? We hear the standard answer, “We are here to grow and experience”, but what does that really mean? After all, each and every one of us has experienced some difficult times. Sometimes it’s hard to find purpose and even more difficult to find joy in these lives. So, why are we here?
