"I think the boy is that fear that holds you saying that it is not good to continue on outside of a physical body, this is a fear of death and is maintained by our society and collective experiences. That part of you wants to vanquish the whole idea of continuing on and learning what your higher self knows is true."
perhaps not a fear of continuing on outside of physical body, but a fear of showing the ´real me´. I still have trouble , or fear, telling people about theories and ideas that i have because i worry they will think i´m nutty or whatever.
Since that dream i dreamt that i had been poisoned and was going to die, but had NO fear about it whatsoever, so i dont think that i am afraid of death as such. I havent ever really thought about death much, i know i dont want to die early or painfully, but i am not afraid of it.
I definately like your interpretation of the highter self going on to learn about things with no space and time. :-) It was like i could still communicate with the living, but was a little bothered that there would be some things i couldnt do (the physical - picking things up etc) but the prospect of reading for an eternity was something i was looking forward to.
