"Beyond the Astral Planes" is the first volume of the trilogy entitled - "THE LARGER WORLD." As such, it is the initial look at the subject matter concerning the phenomenon known as - "Out of Body." The subjects covered within its pages include the associations between the scientific and the practical aspects of both Astral traveling and the evidence of life after death. Although it is considered the beginner volume, it will be valuable to the seasoned veteran as well.
"I have read many books dealing with Astral Travel and the Astral Planes. I found this book to be the most complete and detailed book on the subject. I would list it in a highly recommended reading category. I predict it will be a number one best seller."
- Jan Ross
This work constitutes the second volume of the trilogy entitled - "THE LARGER WORLD." As such, the bulk of the information is a more in depth look at the subject matter found within the first book - "Beyond the Astral Planes." The compelling issues delineated within its pages are further expounded upon by showing the scientific and philosophical aspects of both. In addition, it explains the thirteen forces of the universe, what colors they represent, their mathematical sequences, and which musical notes they sound. Also covered are the theological overtones that are so important within the previously mentioned attributes.
"I read this book after having read Mr. Parkes’ 1st book in the series, Beyond the Astral Plane. I found that it was a more in depth look at the phenomenon known as OBE. I found the book to be informative and easy to comprehend. This book delves into the possibilities and reasons for pursuing an out of body experience. I like the fact that it focuses on cause and effect, rather than any form of mysticism. I recommend Threshold of Perception for the novice as well as anyone who has had some success with OBE’s."
This is the third volume of the series called “The Larger World.” The first book in the set, entitled “Beyond the Astral Planes” defines the knowledge of "out of body" and how to become a traveler. Book two, "Threshold of Perception" is a much more in depth look at the information stated in book one, and becomes the intermediate level of learning. This new volume, “Patterns of Existence,” deals with all of the above and more, but at the advanced level of comprehension of The Larger World. The intent of this series is to be a concise source of research and explanation to an area that has eluded description for centuries. Once in the outer regions of a person's abilities, entire new worlds open before you and beckon to stretch your enlightenment and excitement.
