For me (and I don't expect this to be geared for me, but maybe I speak for hundreds) I want to learn about where I came from, where I am going, and how do I best get there; and I want my thoughts and actions to be consistent with that understanding. And I don't want to mess up anyone else's journey, either by well-intended helpfulness or my own selfish needs to feel interesting, important, or needed. I don't want to influence these people(NDEs) in any way, or chip away their perception of their experience. For instance, Rudy saw some type of intermediate, powerful spiritual entity he calls the Librarian. In pursuing this for my own knowledge, I fear I might taint his expression of what is really beyond human language.// As for the number of NDE's in this forum...One is sufficient. Or two. It doesn't matter. If even one human returned from the dead, would we listen? Do we listen? Like holy men and women all over the world, in all times, their stories ring like prophetic voices: love, forgive, life is short, don't fear death, seek the Light, there is perfect Love there, live in peace as much as you are able. The message is the same.// There can be a purity and freshness to this forum as people grasp for that which is about us all, about our origins and destiny, so close to us, yet so far.// Thank you for your kind words. People who care about these matters sometimes live in a type of isolation because we don't often have much interest in movie stars or ball game heros and such; and work place chatter is a challenge.// May we be loving today in all we do.
