“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.

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.
