Experiencing death
    #3205296 - 10/01/04 11:40 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

If anyone on these boards has had the unfortunate opportunity of having a near death experience, please share your experience.

I didn't care at all. I was approx. 8 feet above my body. The feeling which I can't describe as anything but overwhelming now, was a feeling of content at the time. I was content. "Well, there I go." I thought to myself. I don't remember much after this but returning to conciousness in my hospitol bed.

It scares me how real the event was, and it scares me how I easily described what happened after I was presumed dead, and on the other hand, it is very very very reassuring that there is something after death, that there is an afterlife.

I hope I am not alone on this, anyone else know what I am talking about?

I already know there is an afterlife. Anyone who has seen a ghost knows this.

You have actually become a ghost and come back which in my oppinion is a very enlightenning experiance.

This thread should be interesting!

why does ghost imply afterlife? perhaps only very few poeple have the neccassary energy to maintain personality for a while after death, and you and most of the rest of the world is just going off to be recycled.

The Eastern perspective is that consciousness is an endless continium that never begins or ends. It travels from one life to the next like traveler inhabits guest houses. I guess there could be such things as ghosts if a consciousness is between bodies for a long time, or is reborn without physical form.

I think about what death will feel like alot. I may have an idea from my subconscious or dreams, like losing total control and drifting peacefully but also overwhelmingly out of body and mind it pure light. I'm sure it will be an anxious time, maybe a bit painful and sad, but also probobly tranquil and not that bad. I really only worry about the reallness of it, that it will be too intense and too real compared to life.

Wasn't it scary as well, like an adrenaline rush or an anxiety attack? Like an intense trip. I always figured it would be too tranquil to the point where it would make you anxious, sad and freaked out. Is this incorrect? I hope so.

"I always figured it would be too tranquil to the point where it would make you anxious, sad and freaked out. "

that makes no sense man. The more tranquil you are the less anxious sad and freaked out you are.

Not scary at all man. Ever gotten a cavity drilled while on nitrous? It hurts, but you dont care. It's very hard to explain but it is not freaky or intense at all. I felt content, and I accepted what had happened instantly.

Hmmm. Well that's nice to know.

Regarding Moonshoe's comments, I know that I have had drug induced experiences where my mind was being forced into silence and it was really hard. I was thinking that the experience of death is a tranquil one, but the reaction to it could be resistance, fear or anxiousness. I hope that makes sense.
I guess the brain's opiates go out with a bang.

Exactly what I think too. The actual transition is peaceful so long as you let go :smile:

^^ exactly.

This world is meant to be fleeting. Our emotional individuality is eternal. We call it Death but it's Change. You cannot destroy energy without creating new energy, only change it. The next step will be a truly glorious step and I hope I leave the Earth in a better condition than before I came here.

I believe that is true, but also that most of us are very afraif of change, especially one that big. Losing your body, your identity, all your mental processes, all of your memories, and seeing your life vanish into obscurity could be very difficult. Hopefully we will all be ready to leave it behind when the time comes and won't experience too much pain.

What's to fear?  You won't lose your identity, only the material identity you created for yourself while buying into the illusion and creating your own suffering.  Let go of desire (the desire to not change, to remain static in this everchanging life) and you'll remove all fear.  Remove all fear, and all that is left is love.

I welcome death whenever it comes.  The next life is most likely more real than this life, since we are hampered by our physical and limited amount of flow of information.

Death is, per se, opening the flood gates of knowledge. :smile:  There is nothing to fear, only things to love.

If you are recycled, yet still exsistant, you are still living an afterlife no matter how dilutted you might become.

As for dissapating, some ghosts are hundreds of years old. My friend went to England and visitted the castles out there and they have very many old ass haunted castles. I forget the exact stuff, but there are quite a few ghosts as old as some of the castles out there that have made repeat sightings.

I wouldn't be surprized if reincarnation doesn't exsist, but it is very very feasable. Simply put, I don't know that.

However, I do know IME that ghosts exsist for at least some time after death. The life of a ghost may be very long, however we don't know.

I have felt like I was nearing death during a very intense trip..I wasn't really nearing death, but I remember thinking to myself, "this must be what it feels like to die". I had no idea who I was, where I was, what my life meant..there was no distinction or bariers between me and the rest of the universe..I felt as if there was no distinction between physicality and spirituality, or any such thing as a beginning or end or time or life or death, there was just me and the universe. I have to say, it was very peaceful (words like "peaceful" don't really describe it..it was more like "nothingness"..no fear, no happy, no sad, nothing. only being, pure existence). I hope that's what dying feels like, cause if it is, there is nothing to worry about.
