Re: NDEs

In a nutshell, everything is conscious, from quarks to rocks to humans to galaxies the the totality = all that is. And everything is interdependent. So the brain is conscious, as are all its neurons, neurochemicals, etc. As is the body that houses the brain, all objects in the world “external” to t...

Re: NDEs

Really cool story Web Wanderer. Thank you for sharing that. Get chills reading that. When you first encountered NDEs and OBEs did you doubt their veracity? Or did they just always feel right/true to you? Have either of you had an NDE or OBE experience? If so, did having that experience convince you ...

Re: NDEs

The one I started with is this interview with Dr. Eben Alexander which I will post below. WebWanderer posted it a few years back and it was my introduction. Because Dr. Alexander is a neuro surgeon who was a hardcore materialist/atheist before his experience, and had his life completely shifted 180 ...

Re: Suicide NDE

By the way, if you read the latter part of the NDE where she was sent back, in listening to an interview with Natalie Sudman (which I shared in another thread yesterday), Natalie, from her experience, saw that WE are the ones who choose everything. She said in the audio interview that she believes t...

Re: Suicide NDE

Sorry, I must have accidentally cut off the link. Here's the link. Person's name is D.S. Weiler. In the link below, they also have a link to their own website as this person has their own E-book too apparently. I haven't checked it out yet.

Re: Natalie Sudman NDE

We must be connecting on the same wavelength. I haven't been on this site probably since August. But, just saw this today and this was the same video I was watching at the same time you posted this in early October. Incredible. I found another of hers online which is equally good. It's an audio one,...

Suicide NDE

Read this today on Facebook and I know NDE's are not a hot topic on this forum. But, one of the few places I get to share these. So, I know there are a couple here who do enjoy these. The description of love, is so prominent here, in regards to what unconditional love truly is to me. I offer this to...

Re: Share an anecdote around the campfire

'Twas beauty drew me there. The music/culture/philosophy, the landscapes and old towns, and of course ... love. (We're still great friends.) I'm a Long Islander, grew up a few miles from Jones Beach. How about you? I was at Long Beach today ha! A little loop around the Loop Parkway. I live on the b...

Re: Is presence really just self-restraint in disguise ?

Reading about NDEs will only take you so far. Dreams, visions, OBEs and even NDEs are all very symbolic. It could take a lot of practice to still the mind and strip away the layers of unconscious resistance. Alert stillness is what Eckhart Tolle calls it. Robert Monroe wrote some helpful books abou...

Re: Is presence really just self-restraint in disguise ?

I think we don't see it that way when we're back home. We want the experience of being here which from our human minds, at times can seem incomprehensible knowing how difficult human life can be. But, I don't personally see it that human life is something that is eventually going to be transcended s...

Re: Is presence really just self-restraint in disguise ?

Hi Mystic, it's good to speak with you again as well. Hello E2B :D It is good to talk with you again. I have also read and studied A Course in Miracles. It is a great book. And I read Disappearance of the Universe too. I have to agree with you that the pure non-duality idea does not make any sense. ...

Re: Is presence really just self-restraint in disguise ?

Why trascend it my friend? If you think the world needs to be transcended, then there's your perspective. I've chosen to adopt a much different belief, that I have chosen to be here (my experience has confirmed this for me as well). I'm currently reading A Course in Miracles (the full course). I've ...

Re: Is presence really just self-restraint in disguise ?

Your skepticism on whether you chose to be here or not is well understood. I'm past the time of my life of attempting to convince people of that. When we've believed (and often when our experience has shown) otherwise for so long, of course it seems ludicrous. Who would I be to tell you otherwise? J...

Re: Is presence really just self-restraint in disguise ?

Yes, you are correct. Watching the mind can be difficult, especially in a problematic life situation. Especially when we are in a situation that demands our complete attention, which might also stir up an overwhelming surge of emotion. Suggesting that being present will always be a state of complet...

Re: No going back, but is it worth it?

I agree rachMiel. Yet, to take it to the other extreme which could be even more 'detrimental' (I use that word very lightly), you can start to look for things within yourself to fix and heal and this just re-enforces that there is a problem there in the first place. I think there is immense value in...
