Here is a saying that has many perspectives from which to understand Karma. It is a Mayan saying. 'Do not put yourself in front of your Self.'
There are archetypes in mind and in collective or ‘oversoul’. Personality does not get fully understood by individual in most cases nor does it fully incorporate layers of greater ‘Self’.
I do not believe in evil; though there are people who perform what can be called evil acts including likes of Crowley who defined pretty well why there is no such thing. I see it as a continuum of energy and there are elemental convergences that can take shape through proper or improper manipulation of a conscious or intelligent variety.
OOBEs and astral travel will run into many things made by man and put there to trick or trap people learning spiritual path. I am not particularly into these things but I was very impressed when an adept came and got me one evening and took me to Crowley's favorite abode that looked just like she said it was in Swiss Alps. In fact it was in another dimension or interstitiary energy associated with this one. That associated state of energy is where many souls go before coming back and this is what I called lesser souls in terms of development. They will even be able to remember past lives when regressed but they are part of something larger and it really is only a part of their multi-dimensional self which may include more than tens of millions of souls.
At higher levels of refinement 'collective' is even larger and has more energy. The work of Moody and Kubler-Ross is great research but Tibetan Book of Dead with a forward by Carl Jung and an interpretation by Lama Anagarika Govinda (a Cambridge Mathematician) which was compiled by or translated by Evans-Wentz goes to point more succinctly. As Jung says it - we have visions that mirror our expectations or ethnic programming as stages (15 according to Moody and others) occur through sound to light. These Bardol States called Sidpa Bardol and like name of book Bardol Thödol are not fully understood by anyone here as I see it.
The adepts like one who took me to meet Crowley, or Vivekananda and some few others, can dematerialize and take all body's energy with them to higher planes that according to Vivekananda (I think he was one of these teachers of Yogananda whose writing is most insightful.) may include other causal states in other parts of universe. But most of us will spend time in lesser states around this event horizon. An event horizon relates to time and it varies in universe according to modern astrophysicists. In fact Harmonic of Light and Lost Chord or true science, may have been far better known to pre-Egyptian or pre-cataclysmic peoples like Mungo Man and De Danaan.
Modern String Theory tells us all matter (Dark and otherwise) is comprised of one dimensional harmonic force and that makes Biblical Logos seem most interesting.
