have read raymond moody stuff on it but sometimes, man, as I go through life, i look forward to the day where some. particularly work colleagues, can
see the complexity of experience, they so idly judge and what got you to that point, it's a silly thing to attach to, but sometimes can't help but
live in hope, they will get the full picture
Yes! I have these same thoughts.
Its been a while since I read this, but it really stuck with me. One of the most well-known cases of a near death experience:
Saved By The Light by Dannion Brinkley
Young Dannion was quite the bully, so his life review was a painful one, as he relived his Earthly experiences from his victim's point of view. This
life review had such a profound effect, that when Mr Brinkley returned, he turned his life completely around, with a focus on kindness and compassion.
Unfortunately, most of us don't get a do-over.
I think of this often when I see people's actions or behavior cause others an undue amount of pain and suffering that they aren't even aware of
causing. So many people are focused so tightly on themselves, what feels good, gets a laugh, or what's easiest or most convenient for them. They
never even give a thought to the emotional pain they inflict on those around them. Many of them wouldn't care anyway. So it makes me feel a little
better knowing someday, they will see and feel exactly what kind of pain they caused. Physically and emotionally FEEL and relive it.
Another book that illuminates the idea of how your actions affect others in both positive and negative ways:
The Five People You Meet In Heaven
This one is a work of fiction, a small, quick read. But it is very thought provoking, and will
change the way you see the world. It will make you look at your own behavior and actions from the outside-in.
