I am so thankful that my aunt shared this video with me. It just spoke to me as I am constantly living in fear and worry. While watching this, that feeling abated for a while. I really need to explore this further. Anita Moorjani is a cancer survivor who went into a coma, experienced heaven (not as we know it) and came back to her body to tell the tale. Hers is one of many Near Death experiences and I find it fascinating and comforting too. She says there is nothing to fear about death.
I constantly wish I wasn’t such a skeptic and could regain the faith I had as a little kid. But it quite eludes me.
Some of the concepts she talks about I’ve always believed and hoped for, but to hear it laid out like this was lovely.
Anita talks with such clarity about fear, people pleasing and not loving ourselves. This is 100% true for me.
It’s wonderful that she describes death as being out of the vessel of the body and achieving your essence or full consciousness with the ability to move through space and time. For me reconnecting with loved ones is the first thing that comes to mind.
I was rather taken by the music video from the History Channel’s Bible series that was shown during Easter in the US and became a huge surprise hit. I am not religious (although I wish I was), but I just was in awe at the level of compassion shown and at the same time the horror at how awful human beings can be. But the compassion – wow. Don’t think I could ever be that compassionate as to ask forgiveness for those who torture me. It also helped that the person who played Jesus, a Portugese actor, Diogo Morgando, did such a great job. He was so good and good looking that he inspired a twitter hashtag #hotjesus that embarrassed him.
I can understand why it was a hit, beside #hotjesus, – everyone is craving a little bit of hope in a world that is often quite bleak. Especially with more bad news then good. It makes me want to turn off my CNN iphone feed.
