At the age of 25 I had a near death experience (NDE). I had been very sick for a long time with un-diagnosed Addison’s disease. Two weeks prior to the NDE I had a very vivid dream. There was a single tree in a field of grass with wildflowers strewn here and there, it was a very beautiful. Standing in the center of the field was a woman with her arms outreached to me. When I woke up the dream felt like a premonition, I knew I was going to die.
The NDE occurred in the ICU at 12:05 pm. When I woke up there was at least 20 people standing around me, machines everywhere and a nurse putting oxygen mask on my face, it was very hectic. Before anyone told me what happened, I already knew. There was no bright tunnel, no white light and no one waiting to meet me, I don’t recall seeing anything visually at all. What I was left with was a feeling of utter peace, one that I had never felt before and have not felt since. Wherever I had been I now I was not alone. I had always been afraid of dying and my NDE changed that. I am no longer afraid of death; the process of dying is the scary part. - See more at: www.abovetopsecret.com...
P.S Why is Jesse Ventura staring at me.
Could an eternal consciousness that has no body, create an illusion of physical reality with time? And perhaps after eons completely forget that it is all an illusion.
If the answer is yes, how do we know this body we live in at the very moment is not such a fake state of existence, created by our consciousness lost in the eternal darkness of death.

1. eternal state of non being
Why would you think if you had no body? If you were just conscious but with no body you would have nothing to concern yourself with - it is the body that is our major concern.
2. eternal state of consciousness without a body floating around not able to do anything but think for eternity.
I don't think this makes for 'party time'. Have you seen the film 'Death becomes her'?
3. eternal state of consciousness+body ( party time forever )
4. eternal state of unity with the great one and only ...( new age stuff)

I personally will be celebrating Ostara. Like the good pagan I am. We celebrate it for much the same reason. The "World" is renewed. The light of life has returned. We should give thanks. But I'm looking forward to the after life that I believe waits for me.

If you research near death experiences, you will see how these people loved the afterlife so much they didn't want to return here.
