Jeffrey Mishlove distinguishes between spiritual entities and a spiritual realm. He suggests that the reality of spirits is dependent upon the level of reality being discussed. Spirits may possess a dream body or an astral body; however, at a deeper level of reality, individual “selves” are something of an illusion created, according to Buddhist thought, by codependent origination.
