“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of the people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place…”
“Show respect to all people and grovel to none. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only with yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”
The human race has created the conditions on Earth. There is no reason to believe that the human race cannot create more favorable conditions for itself. Who says that there cannot be a world created where love, peace, equality and justice are at the forefront in all considerations, whether on a personal, national or international level? Fortunately positive changes are happening on Mother Earth, due to the increased communications between people of all nations over the internet. You will probably agree that the Earth and her human residents have seen and experienced enough suffering.
Given the fearful information we have been given about life and death by certain religions, the NDE would seem to negate the fear contained in some teachings. We are speaking of the fear induced upon humans about heaven and hell being the only options at “death.” Could the hellish experience be that which we experience here on Earth because of our lack of spiritual awareness? Domination by a person’s ego could be seen as a form of hellish experience. The aspect of the life review where the person feels the pain of those who were hurt by them would seem like a form of hell. Even those who “get away” with crimes where others are hurt will be unable to escape a hellish guilt.
Adding to our dissatisfaction and sadness in this life is the state indicated by the being in heaven asking the NDE’r, “What did you do for your fellow-man?” Perhaps this aspect of life, helping your fellow-man, explains the personal problems experienced by those considered rich and prosperous. We all must choose between the serving of self (ego) and the serving of others (spirit). Those of us who choose to serve self will learn our lessons when we go to the spirit world. We will experience what those who crossed our paths during our lifetime felt, according to how we chose during those times. We will know whether we chose to serve self or serve others during our life reviews and learn spiritual lessons.
The life review is something that we can understand because we have all experienced regret after hurting others. We have all experienced regret in situations where we did not take the actions which could have helped others. The extreme example here is where the man or woman who we failed to help passes on. These regrets are the most painful as there is not any way to correct the omissions or apologize. It would seem, if any of you have experienced this extreme example, that you should not allow yourself to become too upset about your regrets, as the soul of your departed loved one fully understands from the realm of spirit.
All we can do is our best in this life. When we become more spiritually aware we will take the actions which will help those who we come into contact with. We will not hesitate to be honest with our loved ones, so that there will be no regrets. We will not hesitate to take those actions which will result in improvements in the lives of our fellow brothers and sisters in the family of man. There will come the time where we will do no harm to any living thing, as we will see all as one. We will understand that if we harm others we are only harming ourselves.
Once this spiritual awareness and wisdom reaches everyone on the planet Earth, there will be an eliminating of all harmful acts. In all areas of life actions taken will be for the uplifting of life. Those actions which are harmful to life will diminish to the point where they will be non-existent. What we are describing is a heaven on Earth. The realm which those who experienced the near death experience went to will be exactly the same as the physical realm.
Ask yourself if this is possible. Not only is this transformation of life on Earth to a heavenly realm possible it is the inevitable, end result of human spiritual evolution.
Bodhisattvas are souls of great enlightenment who, according to Buddhism, postpone/forego nirvana to bring enlightenment to the entire, suffering human race and all sentient beings. One would have to believe, given the rapid spiritual evolution humans are experiencing at this time, that many bodhisattvas are here helping with total enlightenment. You will find them all around the planet giving wisdom to the world for this purpose. The changes happening on Earth at this time are coming with the help of these bodhisattvas and can be seen in the spiritually mature movements and ideas of millions.
It is extremely encouraging to see the spiritual evolution of the human race occur. As more and more discover wisdom, the world situation is improving exponentially day by day. We express gratitude that these magnificent, positive changes are happening and that enlightenment of all people is approaching.
Humanity is ready to reach the highest of heights.
“…the most profound experience of my life. In bed I had a seizure and was at risk of dying. It was the most fantastic, real event of my life. I was in a place where there was no place. I saw an envelope coalesce into an infinite ball of light that contained the universe. I could not wrap my mind around it and marveled at the ball of light, drew toward it. Then I had a life review which defined who I was, centering on areas of struggle. I began to feel on edge then, being enveloped by the non-judging, unconditional love of the light. I began to dissolve into the infinite love presence …”
“…It was a timeless feeling. The light began to fade and I did not want to leave life. My awareness came to know that the phenomenal world was a fraction of the whole, but still one. My mission is to communicate what I experienced as best I know to others. Third dimensional beliefs are inadequate to describe the light but it is infinite, the source of everything. The effects are the recognizing of the incredible matrix and the dance of life. There is no separation. I have a deep wish to help others and serve. All of us are waking up to more than we see on the planet now.”
A woman had many near death experiences and describes one where she went with a friend to the light.
“I had eye surgery when I was ten years old and was afraid I could not see. My parents went home and I was afraid when a nun walked in and told me to ‘be a good girl’. I was outside of my body, could see, and met my friend Jimmy who asked me, ‘Do you want to walk me home?’ I said yes, he took my hand and we walked toward the light. Jimmy ran to his friends and family in the light, turned around and waved goodbye to me…”
“…I was back in my hospital bed and there were two angels with me. They told me that Jimmy was hit by a car in an accident and he died in the same hospital. Jimmy found me because I knew the way ‘home’ from a previous near-death experience. I am no longer afraid after the NDE. Love is for everybody. I have work yet to do here. When the work is done I’ll walk home with Jimmy.”
It is not by coincidence that the phenomenon of the near death experience has come to the awareness of more and more people on the planet. Their increased knowledge of spiritual realms is contributing to the evolution of humanity’s collective spirit. As mentioned, the people who have had the experiences have been profoundly changed by them. They have been in direct contact with the world of the spirit; the essential aspects of the universe. This phenomenon is of major importance on the increase of spiritual knowledge and wisdom available to humanity.
Another woman had to go in to the hospital for a routine arthroscopic knee surgery. All of a sudden:
“I felt very cold. I woke up in the recovery room and overheard a commotion where the other patient in the room was. I remember thinking to myself that there was a lot going on there. The nurse spoke my name, then I realized they were talking to me! I was out of my body, looked at who I thought was my roommate, and it was me. I felt no fear but I found myself floating to the corner of the room, looking down at me. I thought to myself ‘How curious this is.’ I felt no anxiety but I became mesmerized, not overwhelmed or terrified. Then an energy pulled me out and away from the recovery room to a place of blackness. I was being pushed into the blackness. I could feel myself becoming lighter and I was looking for something to hold on to. Then I saw a glimmer of light that began to grow as I looked at it…”
“…The light was encompassing and now it was pulling me toward it as it grew in size. I became overwhelmed by light everywhere and the feelings that came to me. I was floating through the light with its brilliance while feeling immense joy and an overwhelming ecstasy. I found myself floating between two rows of hooded beings and feeling cherished, unconditional love, and like I was coming home. The feelings went to the core of my being when one of the beings said, ‘You have a child. You cannot stay.’ This was a divine experience that I’ve never had in my life, so I answered, ‘No! This is home. This is that bliss that I’ve always wanted.’ ‘You must go back. You have a child.’…”
“…I knew I had to go back and then I was instantaneously back in my body in the recovery room. I felt both changed and befuddled from the experience. There was no pain from the surgery and I healed extremely quickly; this was a gift. It took many years before I gained an understanding of the experience. My psychic abilities have increased substantially and I find it an amazing experience to help others remove blocks and connect with their hearts. There is no more judgment. Life is about joy and loving as love is the only reality, there is nothing to be afraid of on the other side or in life. Seeing through the eyes of source equals unconditional love…”
“…While having the NDE I was connected to everything. I had all the answers to everything with total clarity. Now I have a gentle awareness and understanding of the experience. We come into human form for the human qualities and challenges, we are God in human form, God experiencing God. Our ego wants us to separate from God for control and we come from our hearts/Spirits when we get rid of the ego. Maintaining our connection to source while remaining grounded is a challenge for all of us. Our spirit speaks through us with love and eliminates ego and negativity. It is important to know that we came in as creators with an agenda. Trust with a leap of faith and always let your heart rule. Trust in life…”
“…The light is so much more than the sun. The light is alive with a feeling of love and compassion. It contains a million fragments of all the souls that will be or will ever be, in a love that is so overpowering and otherworldly. When do we reach out to the light? The times when we are challenged. I met light beings that welcomed me home and I knew them as family. They went through my life review with me. You look so closely at your life from the viewpoint of everyone you interact with, as you feel their pain and joy. I learned how my actions affected others along with my future. There was no judgment when I had to relive actions that I had taken which caused me regret. The actions taken with a loving intention caused the biggest ripples, like ripples on a pond. We are to live with passion and loving intention. Consciousness lives on in pure form.”
This increased spiritual knowledge and wisdom can now be utilized, and factored into the decisions human beings make both as individuals and collectively. On an individual basis the awareness of the consequences of our actions will reduce anger and its displays. When we understand that the other person will be hurt we will decrease or end anger, hurtful words, physical violence and any other action which is harmful to another.
We can only imagine what good changes with regard to large-scale, world decisions and actions will come when this spiritual knowledge is the major factor.
“…in the presence of God. Awesome. No book, article, movie or anything can describe God’s power as it dissolves everything. The power is so immense that it is beyond power; total love and total oneness. This was a ‘rooftop experience’ which has need to be shared. There is no such thing as death. God is real.”
Another woman had a motorcycle accident which resulted in a fractured skull, numerous broken bones in her head, and a two-week coma. She suffered excruciating pain to the point where she asked God to “take me.” She lifted out of her body and all her pain was gone. She saw an ethereal body of a male angel and noticed that he shined from within. “He took my hand and I was at peace. We flew out the window over the Pacific Ocean and I saw a funnel-shaped object above me with a pinpoint of light at the far end. It was a portal to another dimension where there was no space or time. It’s hard to find words-we arrived at the other end and I saw the living presence of a being of light…”
“…The being was all-knowing, knew everything that was going to happen, all things that were or ever were going to come to be. This has to have been God, perfect in every sense. I was angry at the Vietnam War and all the suffering. The love kept coming and I was able to ask every question that I ever wanted answers for. Perfect answers and all ramifications came instantly to my head. How could I have forgotten what I knew all along? I understood everything. I was like a child being cradled as we (the Sacred being and myself) took off by the speed of thought around the universe. We went from star to star, everything was lit up in galaxies, supernovas and celestial beings. It felt like I was home. We went on a tour where I found everything inexistence was radiant and alive; everything in the universe is alive…”
“…I went through a portal into a newly formed, central star and melted into perfect oneness. It was the quintessence (essential substance) of everything that will exist, one with God and with all things. A drop of water in Creation, I did not want to leave the indescribable ecstasy. It was a million times more intense than Earthly life; cosmic interconnectedness. Everything happens for a purpose, there is no chance to die and there is a greater, more magnificent universe. It’s more real than physical life. That was real, this is a dream.”
A woman had a tire blowout and ended up in an accident.
The next she remembered, “Is being out of my body in the emergency room. I knew everything about everyone in the emergency room. I rose to the 2nd floor and I knew everything about everyone there. I rose out of the hospital and into space and thought, ‘This is great!’ The Milky Way was a few feet in front of me and I didn’t know where I needed to go. I saw one faint star and was instantly there. I was received with welcoming by those who had passed and saw a blinding light, but I could look at it. I wondered why my life was so difficult and I was told, ‘Don’t you remember you chose this?’ Then I recalled choices I had made before birth…”
“…Now it was time for me to judge myself for actions during life. I regretted the actions I took which hurt others. Then I was given the choice to stay or leave. The doctor who worked on me said he would give up the profession if I died, so I wanted him to remain a doctor. I went back. I had amnesia for months where I couldn’t remember anything but the experience. I am dramatically changed because of this and realize that we are extensions of the Creator. I am now non-denominational, psychic, intuitive and a healer.”
After reading the descriptions given by men, women and children of their experiences we must, if nothing else, be amazed at the glorious visions they saw. The world/realm that these souls were in is what the physical realm of Earthly life is in potentiality. When the spiritual truths of unconditional love and body/spirit awareness become widely disseminated, then the people of Earth will create on this planet the type of world that mirrors the world/realm these people as souls experienced.
While working in Chicago a customer came into the business and it was obvious that he had been in a serious car accident. He was able to walk at this point but from head to toe he had been banged up. I asked him what happened and he indeed had been in a major-league accident. I asked him, without expecting him to answer yes, if he “went through the tunnel.” He replied that yes, he had a near death experience.
His description of the experience was that it was, “A hundred times better than sex.” After a few seconds he edited his reply and said, “A billion times better than sex.” True story. Believe it or not.
My only regret was not taking the opportunity to ask him more questions about his experience and getting a better idea of what he saw.
Palestinians are at the heart of the conflict in the M.E Palestinians uprooted by force of arms.. Yet faced immense difficulties have survived, kept alive their history and culture, passed keys of family homes in occupied Palestine from one generation to the next.
This blog is devoted to legal, historical and human rights matters, in which issues of general concern are addressed freely and spontaneously. It is intended to further an informal exchange of views in the democratic spirit of freedom of opinion and respect for the opinions of others, in an effort to understand rather than condemn, to propose constructive solutions rather than grandstand. The perspective is both from inside and outside the box and the added value lies more in the questions than in the answers.
