Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Using geographical terms, Monroe ( Journeys out of the Body ) continues his task as guide to "innumerable people" who are fearful of out-of-body experiences (OBEs), a phenomenon which, for 30 years, he has been claiming to chart. At the Monroe Institute in Virginia, the author conducts classes on his frequent and voluntary OBEs which have, he maintains, provided him with news of his wife after her recent death from cancer. Monroe argues that, by processes often unintelligible to the uninitiated, he can go on science fiction-like trips to "anywhere, in any time, past, present or future," including earlier incarnations. Monroe foresees a unification of all those who practice OBE and a collective passage through the "Aperture" scheduled for the 35th century. His claims are not likely to convince unbelievers.

From Booklist

Monroe is the preeminent explorer and chronicler of out-of-body experiences (OBEs) as well as founder of the Monroe Institute, a nonprofit research organization devoted to studying expanded forms of consciousness. In both his earlier books, Journeys Out of the Body (1973) and Far Journeys (1987), Monroe traversed many bizarre highways of the OBE universe, but here he hops onto the "OBE Interstate," taking us along for a wild ride. In Monroe's unending quest for knowledge beyond the usual human experience, he travels both to distant, nearly inconceivable realms and deep within his "core self" to develop what he calls a different overview. Monroe gains much knowledge, but continues to search for the missing "basic," or elemental truth. Often confused by the paradox of it all, he receives clues and information from several guides who also indulge in sarcasm and humor. As Monroe shatters preconceived notions of life, death, God, and the universe, his descriptions can be taken literally or metaphorically, but, either way, there is much here that is thought provoking and insightful.

By OAKSHAMAN VINE VOICE on April 19, 2002
Format: Paperback
Robert Monroe achieved his masterpiece in this volume. The final missing Basic became a Known. At least it did for him, and for those who take the time to contemplate it- or better yet, experience it for themselves. As for those who aren't yet ready for the truth, well, maybe on their next trip around....

Over the years I have been fascinated with Mr. Monroe's books. Here was a thoroughly left-brain type of individual (a successful engineer and business man) with an open mind. He wasn't a "convert" to the perrenial philosophy, no, he just totally reconstructed the core of metaphysical truth FROM SCRATCH. Or rather, he remembered. Mr. Monroe was no student of religion or metaphysics yet he reached a model of existance that is fully compatible with neoplatonism. We originate from a Creator beyond space and time, we descend into the holographic dream of space-time, we gain experience (along with our kindred sparks) through a varying number of lifetimes, our more evolved "higher selves" reach back through time and space to help ourselves at crucial moments, and we finally return back to the Creator bearing our hard-won gifts. He didn't get this from Plato, Plotinus, or the Upanishads- HE FOUND IT OUT FOR HIMSELF THROUGH DIRECT EXPERIENCE.

Oh yes, he even came to an understanding of M-field energy and manipulation techniques ( most call it magic and correspondence theory.) He also realised the truth of the rare few who "can do covertly anything imaginable- and much that we cannot imagine."

Well done, wanderer, well done....

By A Customer on January 10, 1998
Format: Paperback
Unlike his previous two books, Monroe answers many more questions than he raises. He has come full circle to tell the "truth" about who we are, why we are here and where we can go. More than a guidebook, this book is tantamount to being the Bible for those who believe in the reality of OBE's. Monroe ties all the loose ends together, in as tight a knot as he can, and is finally able to present to us that elusive jewel of insight-the reason for our human existence. It will (hopefully) change, in a fundamental way, how we view reality and our ourselves.
However, to truly appreciate and understand this book, readers should first familiarize themselves with his previous two works. Despite an introductory chapter intended to acquaint unfamiliar readers with his history and experiences with OBE's, Monroe quickly plunges into charting new territory and insights. This is not a how-to book but the author's firsthand experiences traveling out-of-body. Understanding these experiences are difficult enough to grasp by the initiated reader but they may be indecipherable to the unfamiliar. The author's writings are also heavily laden with his own terminologies for describing reality in "the other side." If not familir with his his style and his vocabulary, one could find him or herself a bit perplexed.

In his previous books, Out of the Body Travels written in 1973, and Far Journeys published in 1987 Monroe does not quite attain the level he has reached with this his third and best book.

Now he has behind him more than thirty years of experience in astral travel which is clearly reflected in this narration. This last book of the trilogy is the best compare his first two kind of rudimentary works.

Monroe says there will be complete astral freedom in the 35-century for himself, and the group of souls that comprises his oversoul. "you make your own reality" and Monroe proved it while discovering reality is a hologram type of illusion one hundred percent mentally created.

Eventually we all evolve to a merger with our oversoul whom as well is in an endless journey of progression.

Robert Monroe had more hands on experience in the astral than almost anyone ever will, while still having a functional physical body, and must be respected for that.

While a good read that held my attention (read it in 3 days, and Im a slow reader), some things irked me about his third book in the trilogy, and IMHO, was not quite as enjoyable as the previous two books.

(1) We all must remember that what he saw, what he experienced, was filtered through his own beliefs and mental structures, and are not necessarily an accurate representation of the "objective" reality that was being perceived, if there even is any such thing as an "objective" reality. One big irk was that I do not believe he saw his own perceptions as subjective, but rather as objective in nature, and did everything but explicitly claim that his perception was the correct one. I would advise against anyone accepting his personal interpretation of things as the "objective" way things are. As much as he derides belief systems, he sure built up a good one in this book and less so in the prior two.

(2) I felt this third book was a little scattered in its writing as well. It did not flow as smoothly as the previous two.

(3) The technical parts, as I call those parts where he explains the general mechanics, as he sees them, of the Great Beyond, were not enjoyable. Unfortunately, these technical sections could last for chapters at a time, and read like a technical manual (I am also critical of this with other authors on the subject as well, such as Robert Bruce).

(3.5) I also noticed that most of his personally coined terms were generally synonymous with many New-Age and/or Eastern terms.
