According to legend, a number of ancient spiritual masters have dissolved their physical bodies into pure energy. Most used special exercises and techniques that had to be applied over a period of years, the results of which were the total transformation of the physical form into a form of self sustaining light energy. The new light form was immortal and indestructible. Somehow, these legends have not made it into our Western lexicon.
The Body of Light represents a complete and total and radical transformation of one?s status of being, a rediscovery of what was primordially present, and this condition is permanent. It is Awareness itself and is dependent on nothing else. This may be compared to the various Christian notions of transfiguration, resurrection, and ascension.
There exists in history many examples of the successful completion of this process. Even in recent years there have been a number of Tibetan Lamas, both Buddhist and Bon-po, who attained realization of the Rainbow Body (?ja-lus-pa) at the end of their lives and some of these occurrences were witnessed by Chinese Communist officials.
In this book The Human Body of Light, board-certified psychiatrist and author Dr. Mitchell Earl Gibson explores this fascinating arena of human potential. This book is designed to explore one question; is it possible for the human body to evolve into pure energy? Through meticulous research and one-of-a-kind insightful observations, The Human Body of Light explores the real phenomenon of an extraordinary type of human evolution. The realizations that accompany this knowledge has the potential to change our understanding of what it means to be human.
