Between Life And Death

The mysteries of death, the existence of the soul and the reincarnation of souls in different bodies are assumed to be ghost stories by the scientific community.

Near-Death Experience (NDE) is a phenomenon that lies in between life and death and is documented by various doctors. Many people on the verge of death have had vivid other-worldly experiences and spiritual visions that cannot be dismissed as dreams.

A question that many people have: ‘What happens when we die?’, can be answered by the mystical accounts of Near-Death Experience (NDE) by people who have almost died, documented by a number of doctors and scientists.

There are many case studies of people who have experienced NDE with these common and recurring themes:

  1. Recalling old memories in a new kind of clarity and vividness.
  2. Meeting old and dead relatives.
  3. Going through a dark tunnel with a glorious, radiant light in front of them.
  4. Have identical feelings of wonder, mental clarity, timelessness and bliss.

Near-Death Experiencers feel frustrated as their stories, encounters and experiences are incomprehensible in our limited dimension of reality.

The mind is suddenly separate from the brain, and the world expands for them for a brief time. Many resort to composing music or painting to retell their experience in a non-verbal manner, but they feel as if they are trying to explain light to someone who is blind from birth.

The phenomenon of Near-Death Experiences (NDEs) is hard to test, or experiment, and is therefore hard to prove.

The similarity of stories or the various feelings(like euphoria) can be explained by science in myriad ways: The brain might be fantasizing or dreaming to escape the reality of death, or the brains feel-good chemicals might have flooded the consciousness.

Science, which often finds the claims as wobbly and anti-science, can explain NDEs as complex hallucinations.

Near Death Experiences (NDEs) is life-changing for many, who experience physical changes in the mind and body. They start to understand things they did not bother about earlier, feel a sense of unity and harmony with the world and the entire universe.

Due to a transformation in their attitudes, beliefs, behaviours and values, many change their professions and become social workers, volunteers and teachers, helping society rather than simply being a burden on earth.

A near-death experience is an introduction to spirituality for the rest of us, just like the Disney movie Soul introduces the idea of the after-life to kids who did not get any spirituality teaching at home or school. Most people are yet to understand that spirituality exists in them just like breath, and is not something separate.
