See, it's a language problem again, I think. What's otherwordly?
I totally agree. An accurate description is "another reality." Nirvana, for example, is "another reality." Everything outside of Nirvana is all-inclusive.

braveone2u, I'm wondering what your definition of "nirvana" is?

The acceptance of authority does not lead to intelligence.
A mind untouched by thought...the end of knowledge.
To see reality loose your opinions.

I'm happy to explore all the alternatives to "spiritual awakening", it might help me to better understand myself and how I experience the world. I will say that my experiences permanently changed my life for the better, however one chooses to define it. Being a practical person, that's as valuable as anything else. I do know people who've had these kinds of experiences and blew it off, so it never had much of an impact on them, or much value, either. Well, heck there aren't two people exactly the same, no matter how many billions are on the planet. It's sort of like the human equivalent of the super box of crayons; it takes all 64 to make a full box. The diversity is always fascinating and often amusing, and sometimes annoying, but I'd rather have it all than not.

Nirvana is the process of deleting the residue of "you," accumulated memories of past lives and the remaining "awareness" of "you" (during the Nirvana process). This process takes place in the Infinite Void. It's not a spiritual amnesia. The "you" simply wouldn't exist after merging with God(?). God(?) is one, is It not?? Everything outside of God(?) reality is geared to bring back the separated "awareness" back to its source. Every "thing" in this world, seen and unseen -- outside of God(?).
