I went to the nderf home page and looked around. It didn't take me long to see the 'scientists' were the same ones selling 'spiritual necklaces and jewelry'. At that point I left having found no actual scientific studies.

BTW, even if there were good scientific evidence of people viewing from outside their body (i've actually had that kind of nde myself once in Japan) that would say nothing about persistence of consciousness after death since there was no death yet at that point.

Edgar and Margie,

I am fine at this moment, not really suffering a lot. Meanwhile I am scared by stories of suffering. If you think the best way is not to think about suffering, just 'think' about the present, I can say nothing more. Edgar, with your scientific approach, please read carefully the nderf, then tell me they are all bullshiting.

Anthony and Margie,

Anthony, would it help if you knew that the great all loving all powerful mother of the universe has you in her arms loving you at every moment including right now?

She does..... It's called being alive in her arms.... You just simply need to experience it..... And make that the essence of your experience in every moment....

Hello Anthony-

I think you are hurting yourself unnecessarily with this line of
thought Anthony. I'm sorry for that, I don't like to see people suffer.

Again, a look into history will show you that there is NOTHING that
can ensure peace. Lots and lots of things have been tried through the
ages and peace has never come. It is very ironic, people are willing
to go to war, to kill and be killed over whose "morality" is the
"right" one. It's a hard pill to swallow, I know, but the plain truth
is that peace isn't the nature of most human beings. Or most human
beings cannot see their buddha-nature.

The only thing left is to create a peaceful place within yourself.
There are many ways to do that, zazen, other forms of meditation,
certain therapies, etc. I don't think anyone can find peace in the
world without finding it within themselves first.

performance, the opposite is frequently true.
