My take on the planes (physical, astral and beyond)
People get the planes so wrong, because they’re visualised as layers, like pieces of thick cardboard piled on top of one another, or a few spaces apart. I prefer the metaphor of tuning into a radio signal. If the universe were a guitar, it would be fretless. But a guitar is still a poor metaphor, because the notes still go from top to bottom, or one side to the other. High to low. We see everything linearly, in lines, so we become obsessed with this idea of there being a destination (and yes, as usual, a start and beginning) when really the universe doesn’t work like that. But I digress from my main point, which is this - if you don’t like reality in the physical right now, then raise your vibrations. This will raise your position in the universe “higher”, to where things are more positive. We’re not a rock world seperated from the rest of the universe and planes, its a part of the greater whole, eventually it fades into something where the physical plane becomes unrecognisable - its not like a jump from one step upto another - its like falling asleep. Does that happen like an on-off switch? No, you slide gradually until there are no recognisable features of the previous “stage” (getting trapped by language here) left. Falling sleep is the fastest ascension into other planes that most humans are capable of. The word planes is probably the culprit here, a plural implying seperate entities. It needs one of those kind of collective words, like “space” or “mist” - amorphous, multidirectional (and of infinite paths) and basically just pretty ungraspable. Still nothing but an emblem to the real (wordless) experience, but its an improvement. If you must view the universe/planes as a sort of map, then bare in mind that the “planes” are only signposts and landmarks put up by previous travellers.
Currently reading this wonderful book. Well recommended as an introductory to those interested in modern results-based magick. By Richard Metzger with articles written by many other authors, not to be confused with the Aleister Crowley book of the same name.

"Throughout all serious esoteric writings, the term Light repeatedly
appears, and it may seem that this is a metaphor about the Spiritual condition.
But reference to Light is not metaphorical; it is descriptive.Those with even
minimal experience of the inner worlds will attest to the fact that muchof the
inspired literature of the East and West,interpreted bytheologians as merely
symbol, is a strikingly accurate description of spiritual experience.
The search for direct experience of this Light is the “Great Work” of the
Personality in incarnation, and devotion to the Great Work is the virtue
assigned to Tiphareth. The principle involved is that whenthe individual man
improves himself in some way,that improvement works to the benefit of the
entire human race. Moreover, as it was put by the Egyptian astronomer
Ptolemy, in his Centiloquy: “A sagacious mind improves the operation of the
heavens as a skillful farmer, by cultivation, improves nature.” Ultimately, the
Great Work is the work of return to the Godhead from which the Universe
