If you want to be an astral projector, you are going to be in an elite member of humanity.

Dream Work: Freaks, Wizards and Shamans: Notes from Swami Vivekananda Saraswati
When you do dream work you will become like shamans and wizards. If you want to be an astral projector, you are going to be in an elite member of humanity. The normal person lives in ignorance.
What if you want to do something beautiful? People do have power. Where is the limit in terms of morality and immorality with astral projection? Ask, “What is the intention? Is it an abuse of power? Do you have something to offer? Is it a good deed or is it selfish?”
Knowledge is power.
Everyone who has knowledge has power.
Robert Monroe says, ‘if you want to become an astral projector then prepare to become a freak.’
The people around you will start treating you like a freak when you astral project. You will not be able to connect with the crowds when you are a magician.
Many people will start avoiding you when you do astral projection and lucid dreaming. People will think that you are strange and they will ostracize you. They will make a party, but not invite you. In the village the Shaman is a peculiar person. He is isolated and peculiar. When people need him he emerges, but he was not frolicking with people. Anything you do to lift yourself out of the norms of humanity will alienate you.
