death: nde---near-death-experience: articles


Near Death ExperiencesMuch has been wrote on the subject of near death experiences. On the previous page, here, I shared with you my mother's story about her NDE. This page at the bottom contains links to sites with articles about the experience, and tries to explain it.

Religion and the near death experience

I have found when looking through sites about the near death experience that many people feel there must be a connection with their specific religion. However, further research shows that people of varying religions and faiths that have these experiences, have positive ones. Many people will explain away why someone can see Jesus, Buddha, Mohammad or whatever the focal point of their religion is, instead of what they personally feel is the way to spiritual enlightenment.

The facts are the facts. Near death experiences have good and bad experiences in all walks of life and all religions. There are quite a large number that claim a "hell" experience, as well as a "heaven" one. Everybody cannot be right, even though they each claim to be. This puzzle leads me to believe that the majority of near death experiences are not really someone experiencing the afterlife at all, but rather a medical side effect of the brain's lack of oxygen. The ones experiencing "hell" are the ones with a lot of pent up guilt, or feelings of unworthiness. A person who is raised in a religion that is exceptionally fundamentalist or zealous, may very well develop an unconscious belief that they are not worthy, so during their NDE they create a hell experience in their minds.

Even atheists sometimes report good experiences

This can also be argued on the positive side. A strong feeling of righteousness, or a vast faith in a loving God that could no more "burn" you then you could sit around dismembering innocent animals for fun, may very well have preprogrammed their minds to have a positive experience.

The fact of the matter is that, for all the near death experiences out there, we really don't know for sure what happens after death. Not when every religion has both good and bad experiences, and not when even atheists return sometimes with positive stories. The stories out there just don't have the logical evidence behind them to "prove" anything. So take it with a grain of salt, keep an open mind and don't believe everything you read.
