Proof of Heaven

I have just read Proof of Heaven – A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander, M.D.

“Dr. Eben Alexander’s near-death experience is the most astounding I have heard in more than four decades of studying this phenomenon.  He is living proof of an afterlife.” – Raymond A. Moody, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., author of Life After Life: The Investigation of a Phenomenon–Survival of Bodily Death

Since I had a near death experience,  I love reading about other NDE experiences.  Dr. Alexander’s is unique in that his brain was attacked by an extremely rare bacteria.  The part of the brain that controls thought and emotion, and is the essence of what makes us human.  During a 7-day coma he experienced the after life with no attachment to his physical body, family or earth for that matter. As a man of science, Dr. Alexander did not believe in spiritual phenomenon. His account addresses his journey to a Believer. In Appendix B he explains 9 possible neuroscientific hypotheses to explain his experience and why they all fail.  Consciousness is eternal. We are energy and when our physical body dies our consciousness (energy) returns to the source of all there is. So I was most interested in his experiences ‘after his life’. His telling affirms some great Beliefs.

“From the Core my understanding of what we call “dark energy” and “Dark matter” seemed to have clear explanations, as did far more advanced components of the make up of our universe that humans won’t address for ages.
This doesn’t mean, however, that I can explain them to you. That’s because–paradoxically–I am still in the process of understanding them myself. Perhaps the best way of conveying that part of the experience is to say that I had a foretaste of another, larger kind of knowledge: one I believe human beings will be able to access in ever larger numbers in the future. But conveying that knowledge now is rather like being a chimpanzee, becoming a human for a single day to experience all of the wonders of human knowledge, and then returning to one’s chimp friends and trying to tell them what it was like knowing several different Romance languages, calculus, and the immense scale of the universe.
Up there, a question would arise in my mind, and the answer would arise at the same time…”

The main highlight of my NDE was exactly this. Whatever I thought happened, I experienced my thoughts simultaneously with thinking them. I Thought about leaving my 9 year old son because yes I died, and I was looking at him sleeping in his bed. Thought about where am I and saw the most amazing white light at the end of a dark passage.

….there was no such thing as a question without an accompanying answer. These answers were not simple “yes” or “no” fare, either. They were vast conceptual edifices, staggering structures of living thought, as intricate as cities. Ideas so vast they would have taken me lifetimes to find my way around if I had been confined to earthly thought. But I wasn’t. I had sloughed off that earthly style of thought like a butterfly breaking from a chrysalis.

“I saw the earth as a pale blue dot in the immense blackness of physical space. I could see that earth was a place where good and evil mixed, and that this constituted one of its unique features. Even on earth there is much more good than evil, but earth is a place where evil is allowed to gain influence in a way that would be entirely impossible at higher levels of existence. That evil could occasionally have the upper hand was known and allowed by the Creator as a necessary consequence of giving the gift of free will to beings like us.

I painted this canvas for a client after my NDE.

Small particles of evil were scattered throughout the universe, but the sum total of all that evil was as a grain of sand on a vast beach compared to the goodness, abundance, hope, and unconditional love in which the universe was literally awash. The very fabric of the alternate dimension is love and acceptance, and anything that does not have these qualities appears immediately and obviously out of place there.

I highly recommend this book and will discuss it further.
