The Social Isolaion of the Dying

November 22, 2013
The time when a person is about to pass on is significant in some ways both before and after the event.  When we socially isolate dying persons we hardly realize the impropriety involved.  Such isolation results from ignorance of the consciousness transformation that takes place around that time and the person's need for company from people who understand. Those who go through a NDE and those who study their messages can bring in a healthy mental atmosphere to ease the transition of the dying person.  In this connection, the book "Transformed by the Light" by Melvin Morse (with Paul Perry) can enlighten people to a good extent.  The pioneering book "Life After Life" by Raymond Moody can pave the way for clarity in this matter.  There are also other significant books dealing with this esoteric topic.

Melvin Mores says the following:

Death related visions or the use of guided imagery with the dying can result in increased bedside activities, conversations about death and dying, touching, holding, and simply sitting; all which can reverse the social isolation of the dying.

It is good to get involved in this matter even as we are leading a good life so that it won't be too late when the occasion confronts us.

    
 

The Test on Spiritual Transformation

April 2, 2013

Many people who have sworn allegiance to some religious system talk of religion and spirituality as though they are the same thing.  It would be a pity if it were to be so because, while religions are sectarian in practice, true spirituality is universal.  It cannot be the monopoly of any group, nor can it have anything to do with events in history because it is beyond time.  Unfortunately, the religious people want to wrap up spirituality into their fold not knowing that sectarian religiou...

The Universal Consciousness

December 27, 2012
During a near death experience (NDE) or an out-of-body experience (OBE), people feel an expansion of consciousness beyond the body. At that time they become aware that our usual mental state is very limited in its ability to perceive. The expansive perception is usually accompanied by a feeling of 'timelessness'.  They feel that the past, present and future are all present at the same time.  This feeling gives them the understanding that the linear dimensional movement of time associated with...

Dividends from Paranormal Phenomena

November 21, 2012

In these days of modern science and materialism, the deeper aspects of life are being overlooked, if not criticized.  This has led to a kind of inner poverty that no material riches can ever compensate for.  The increasing number of suicides is a glittering pointer to this in a gathering gloom spawned by such poverty.  When one senses the gloom, one moves naturally into the esoteric region which encourages the study of paranormal phenomena.  If you have had an out-of-body experience (OBE) or ...

This matter of being 'judged' in the yonder

July 18, 2012

It is important to note that the sectarian religious practices, especially those that insist on the 'one life only' formula, have a tendency to introduce fear in their adherents by this matter of being 'judged' after the bodily death.  A careful and impartial study of the NDE narrations clearly point to the fact that such an insistence is a gross misrepresentation of what transpires after death.  It is a misrepresentation because it is in total contradiction with what thousands of NDE people ...

A note about NDE

July 6, 2012
The following are the last lines in the book "Reflections on Life after Life" by Raymond Moody:

Most people who have had near death experiences don't seem interested in proving it to other people.  One woman psychiatrist who had a near death expereince told me, "People who have had these experiences know.  People who haven't should wait."

On Reincarnation

June 2, 2012
The Near Death Experience and Reincarnation seem to be allied topics as many NDE people report seeing past lives during their clinical death periods. The following episode given by Jean Ritchie in her NDE book "Death’s Door" is a direct pointer to reincarnation (Ritchie, 1996). 
"Ms Jean Allen had her NDE as a result of a horrific accident with a chain saw that she used to cut logs of wood for her fire place.  At the time of the mishap, the saw cut through her cheek, neck, chest and left ar...
