There is a large difference between following a religion and believing in a higher power. Religion is MAN-MADE – “BELIEF ” comes from the soul and all creatures, all living life has an energy that no science, no religion can explain.
Religion will be/is the downfall of mankind. Just another type of gang in a race of people who have always formed into groups claiming their gang is better than your gang.
And now I will hear from all the fanatical gang members – Catholic’s will Bless themselves, Muslim’s will tell me there is only their faith, the extremist will rape my budgie. You are all a boxed set – gang members hiding under the cloaks of man-made opinions.
Been dead seven times – WHAT A SURPRISE YOU ALL HAVE COMING UPON YOUR DEATH – no virgins, no Tim Horton’s in the clouds – just penance and explanations to why you lived your life the way you have.
I noticed through life that the better a person is the more trials and tribulations they suffer while others sail through with no worry. I believe it is due to the better person being able to handle and understand WHY they must be tested.
From experience I can honestly say that there is definitely an “after life” – just not the one portrayed in books written by false prophets and re- written over and over.
The Hindu and Buddhist have the closest ideology and perception. Five of the seven times I passed and had to be resuscitated I experienced the exact same after death experience. Made me look at faith and life totally different.
We pay penance here and again in “purgatory” or whichever equivalent your faith allows you to believe.
My “near deaths” were like an LSD trip – but the ones were I was actually “dead” were not.
When I was taking part with the “Near Death” and then the “After Death” programs at Sunnybrook Hospital I discovered many who had very similar experiences. The last time was the most enlightened. It seemed to last the longest and it ended as soon as they brought me back by CPR, epi and defibrillation. Then it was six weeks on life support and the insanity of being fully aware but not really “here”. I never wish to have to experience that ever again.
People perceive god or the Hairy Thunderer as a person or being – not true – it is an energy, a communication of knowledge that cannot be understood or comprehended by the living human mind.
For we are not meant to understand and we were not meant to return and share what we have experienced for only the dead should know of Death’s construction.
For Death has no place within our living life.
It is merely the first step of ascension to the next higher plain of space/time continuum.
So sayeth The LightHouse Dann Verner on this day of your Lord, January 9, 2017.
Remember I tell you this.
