I haven't been posting very much lately, as I have been going through some life changes. Learning and growing in many ways, different ways.. reading and studying and practicing... a lot of spiritual stuff and learning how to quiet my mind, go within, meditate.
I recently finished reading a fascinating book by neurosurgeon Eben Alexander, MD, Proof of Heaven A Neurosurgeon's Journey Into the Afterlife. You have probably read and heard about near-death experiences. As someone who thought he should "know" that, although these episodes seem very real to the persons having them, they are easily argued away by all sorts of scientific explanations. That was until Dr Alexander contracted a rare form of meningitis, went into a coma and, for a week was close to death himself. Everyone had given up on him surviving, thinking that even if he did his brain was so damaged that he would be mostly in a vegetative mental state and need round-the-clock care. Dr Alexander suddenly awakened after that week-long coma, and had an amazing complete recovery.
His book details his journey into the "afterlife." Here's a short video I found of him speaking about his experience. Please watch.
