I first ran across Bruce at university and at a time when I was just transitioning from elm to a GUI mail provider. Better yet was this new app called a 'browser'! If I focus and weave my memory right, I can almost reconstruct the first read. Why mention this? Because Bruce has developed a direct, simple, and very potent means of awareness translation. The _Treatise_ is his first cover-to-cover exposition and every time he adds an edition I find my day brightened. That alone is reason to pass on the first encounter. His NEW (New Energy Ways) process is unique and helpful. It also provides one of the four top supports I've found for astral projection and other awareness exercises.
What Bruce brings to the table is the discovery he made that when the books and teachings on this topic write about 'visualization' what they mean is 'imaginative focus'. I'm one who 'visualizes' well in touch and hearing, but not so well in vision. Bruce was a godsend. Once I grasped his point, my practice solidified and became very straightforward. The insight he provides brings understanding to the exercises involving the senses and their unification. Once you grasp that (at first) you only need to place your awareness by means of sense projection, you will thank Bruce and send many happy prayers his way.
No, I've not given the game away--the book delivers so much more; just think--if one exercise and principle is that helpful, how much more helpful will the book be?
_the Treatise on Astral Projection_ is a delight to read and a precious aid to practice.
