Chapter 1: A Disturbance and a Revelation
‘Are you ready?’
The foreign voice materializes within Billy’s head. But he is not surprised. A psychic link has been established allowing direct communication via thoughts alone. Yachi, his mentor is the source of the voice. He doesn’t wait for a reply. Billy soon finds his energy focused and his body relaxes. Yachi is aiding him, speeding up a process that usually takes several minutes. Billy slowly disentangles from his physical body, floating up to hover just below the roof.
He is now in the astral realm, an alternative dimension where he takes a form of pure energy allowing movement unhindered by gravity or walls. He heads out into the city streets. As he moves beyond the room he sees office workers rushing to yet another meeting, buskers pouring out their soul, people having teary break-ups, while others fall in love. Those jaded by the city’s harsh edge are found alongside those enchanted by the dazzle of its bright light.
