The Folly Of The NDE Critic: We can easily demonstrate the inability to comprehend even the most basic of man’s higher spiritual realities, when we examine the theory of the pseudo-scientific authorities who for purely ideological and philosophical reasons, strive to explain away the Near Death Experience (NDE) as the illusions of an oxygen starved dying brain — attempting to totally ignore many important factors which they can’t even begin to come to terms with. And one of those important factors that the skeptic ignores, is the accounts of the many people who experience an NDE, who find themselves floating through what we perceive to be concrete walls, where they then are able to both view and hear what transpires in this physical reality from a remote location that is far removed from their lifeless dead body. Unlike the person who finds themselves merely floating above their body, these people observe and witness events that are taking place in other rooms, and sometimes at great distances from their dead physical body. There is documented cases where, during an NDE, the person is able to report conversations between people they did not know was present outside where their body was being resuscitated, that took place in other rooms. If a person who has died in an accident or during an operation is able to accurately convey not only the people present, but also their conversations and the events that transpired at a location that is removed and not in the same room as their lifeless body, then what this person experienced while dead cannot be rationally portrayed as an oxygen starved dying brain. Yet, not only does the pseudo-intellectuals who ignore the facts in order to promote their ideology fail to even acknowledge the many accounts where a dying individual found themselves floating through what we perceive as concrete walls to accurately repeat the events in a distant place or waiting room — but there have been cases where a person who had an NDE found themselves drawn to a remote place many miles from where their lifeless body was, and was able to repeat and convey to others the people and events that transpired at this remote location. And because they can’t explain the facts that their philosophical ideology inhibits them from acknowledging, their reasoning is fraudulent and bogus, and their intellectualism is counterfeit.
A rational mind would conclude that if there was any truth to the skeptics theory that an NDE is the result of the illusions of an oxygen starved dying brain, then the people would not at all be able to report conversations and events that transpired remotely from their body. But, in the manner of a true believer, no amount of proof or facts could cause these skeptics to examine their opinions from the perspective of the mounting evidence that proves them to be in error. Why? To simply acknowledge this one point, would have the effect of forcing the Atheist and skeptic to re-examine the whole framework of their thinking and beliefs. In fact, their whole Darwinist house of cards would come tumbling down before them. And that our educational system permits these pseudo-experts to promote their easily disproven opinions without being challenged, represents a virtual crime being perpetrated against young innocent minds, that the government schools force children to be programmed into a model of thinking that is easily proven to be a bogus fraud.
In an article entitled Valedictorian Speaks Out Against Schooling by Erica Goldson, she writes: “I contend that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. I did what I was told to the extreme.“ And then Erica Goldson concludes: “I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.”
The fact that ideologues have a government ordained license to promote one philosophical school of thought, while censoring all other positions, is a crime that is not only being perpetuated upon our children — but is unconstitutional. Yet, in the manner of what Erica Goldson portrays as “slaves to the system” that has been put into place by both sectarian and non-sectarian ideologues, we promote the spiritual death of our children even before they have had the opportunity to begin to truly live. Again, quoting Erica Goldson: H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not “to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States.” Because crucial facts and information is being censored and withheld from the developing minds of children, the necessary centers of mind that must be nourished with higher impressions that give birth to elevated and higher areas of reason and intellect, remain dormant and atrophied. And sadly, it becomes near impossible to free the mind of its initial programming at a more advanced age, when the patterns of thought has already been set and fossilized. And when you come to understand that all essential truths in this world are often paradoxical — immersed in a world of conflicting opinions and facts — then you can begin to understand that the acceptance of one truth to the rejection of its opposite, is very much the eating of the forbidden fruit of the Tree of Duality that brings death — i.e., “…let the dead bury their own dead” (Matt 8:22 NKJ).
In their elevated understanding of the Laws, the Deists (see Deism And The First Amendment) understood that the people must possess the necessary freedom and liberty to form and live in groups where schools of thought which is representative of each of the twelve spheres of mind, have the environment of freedom necessary to nurture and develop their philosophical ideas to their highest level of expression. Often, each of these philosophical schools of thought require the adherents to live in accord with certain standards and teachings — separate and apart from the influences and coercion of other groups that embody a conflicting school of thought. Yet, with government institutionalized education where a lifestyle and ideology is promoted, while conflicting facts and philosophical schools of thought are suppressed and censored, the homogenization factor creates an environment of mental stagnation and spiritual death — a death that destroys the life of the child, before they even have the opportunity to truly begin to live. If anything, the Near Death Experience (NDE) shatters the cultural Paradigm of Thought that enslaves mankind in a framework of fossilized thinking, and awakens them to the existence of a higher reality than what they have been programmed to even imagine.
In the same way that Robert Jastrow, an astrophysicist who is quoted in the foregoing, portrays the flaws in the big bang theory as the scientist’s refusal to speculate beyond their predefined view of the world and the limitations of their manmade theories — i.e., he is quoted as stating that: “If a scientist really examines the implications, he would be traumatized. As usual, when the mind is faced with trauma, it reacts by ignoring the implications – in science this is called ‘refusing to speculate’ – or by trivializing the origin of the world by calling it the Big Bang, as if the universe were merely a firecracker” — the pseudo-authorities who attempt to ignore the implications of those in an NDE who witness events and conversations distant from their lifeless body, as their own rejection of the facts that cause them to “…refuse to speculate”. An oxygen starved dying brain which they promote as an explanation for the NDE — portraying the dying process as a purely physical experience, confined to the consciousness of the dying body that is initiated by a lack of oxygen — ignore what they refuse to acknowledge. Why? Because they have been traumatized by the facts — and in view of the fact that the implications are a threat to everything they hold as truth — they simply refuse to even speculate. A dying oxygen starved brain simply cannot transcend time and space — move through and beyond the barrier of physical walls — and witness and overhear events that is taking place far remotely from their dead and lifeless body. So, because their dying brain theory is itself gravely flawed, the skeptics simply ignore all the factual accounts, and refuse to speculate beyond the very limited borders of their self imposed beliefs. Why? In order to preserve their theory that man is nothing more than a mutated beast — and is accountable to nothing higher than the satisfaction of his carnal appetites.
If the above facts pertaining to NDE accounts where people witness events and overhear conversations that take place great distances from their dying body were not in and of itself enough to prove their modern flat-earth brain/mind theories in error, there exists people who learn to separate their mind from the brain, and these people learn to self-induce and bring about what is called an Out of Body (OBE or OOBE) Experience. And while an OBE would be more of a New Age objective, than those associated with the teachings of TheWay which is presented throughout this article — it remains true that the OBE enables the person to visit the countless astral realms that surround the earth that exist beyond this world, at the most immediate levels of the Field. Moreover, their exists a growing body of evidence which substantiates the claims that a certain percentage of people are able to accurately recall previous lives that their soul has lived.
What does the Bible state? With respect to man’s ability to release himself from the body-vessel, Paul writes that: “I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago– whether in the body I do not know, or whether out of the body I do not know, God knows– such a one was caught up to the third heaven. And I know such a man– whether in the body or out of the body I do not know, God knows — how he was caught up into Paradise and heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter” (2 Cor 12:2-4 NKJ). What Paul is describing is an inner journey beyond the limitations of the physical body — to what he portrays as the third level of heaven — beyond the inner gate of the body and what Paul portrays as Paradise — where he “…heard inexpressible words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.” That other disciples of TheWay who were called Gnostics, brought about this same transformation of body and mind that enabled them to enter the Inner Kingdom ( http://GateOfEden.com ), represents an important aspect of the original spiritual objectives of the teachings of Jesus and TheWay. Jesus taught that there is One Teacher — and you must learn only from this One Teacher (see The True Prophet) — and the substance of Jesus’ teachings of TheWay, was to enable the disciple to enter the “narrow gate” within themselves, and learn the Sacred Secrets of Creation directly from the One Teacher.
What Jesus taught with respect to an inner Kingdom and a Source of All Truth which the ancients called the Logos or Mind of God (see Logos), is not at all a religious belief — but rather, a fact of life that has been proven to be true by countless seekers the world over. That those who choose to live their lives in often total abandonment of any higher moral or spiritual values and standards, can’t duplicate this same inner journey into the Inner Kingdom — and the fact that these same individuals are perceived to dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the “outer darkness” of mind and being — or what Plato portrayed as the Cave of Illusions — is merely the fruit of their own thinking as their carnal chickens come home to roost! When the cultural authorities said the world was flat — and Columbus ignored their self-imposed beliefs, and traveled to the New World, it was not a religious belief that the New World existed — just like it is not a religious belief that each of us has an inner gateway to the Kingdom within. This is a fact of life that has been confirmed by countless witnesses who have themselves made the inner journey. That those who, as the prodigal son who squandered away his inheritance — i.e., his vital life-force and bio-energies — which portray people who defile their body and choose to live as heathen beasts — thereby “…destroys and pollutes, as far as in them lies, the Deity dwelling in them – that is, the Logos — by association with their vices” (see Logos) — and because of this defilement and pollution, they dwell in what Jesus portrayed as the “outer darkness” of mind and being (see The Outer Darkness ) that causes them to be blind to man’s own higher reality of soul and the Kingdom — does not at all mean that all of mankind must remain spiritually blind, and alienated from the higher knowledge of the soul and the Kingdom of God. From a purely Constitutional perspective, the knowledge of this inner Kingdom and the higher reality of the soul can and should be portrayed as a birth-right — and this sacred knowledge is therefore very much an UnAlienable Right that can’t be censored by counterfeit teachers who knowingly suppress and censor the facts in order to promote a godless and immoral culture. Again, to clarify — while the existence of the inner Kingdom is a fact, religion is the mindset and lifestyle that the person must live and put into practice, in order to break down the barrier of separation of what is allegorically portrayed as heaven and earth within themselves.
The objectives of the teachings of TheWay that are presented throughout this web article, is to go within the mind (in contradistinction to external astral realms), and open the inner door to the soul — and what I call, the Realm of Souls on the Being of Light web site ( http://BeingOfLight.com ). But even this would be considered elementary. The objective of the original Ebionite Nazirene teachings of Jesus and TheWay, was to so transform the body, that the inner walls of division become negated, and the physical mind becomes united with the soul — or higher soul-self, who is the true being that each of us is. But to accomplish this, you must not only open the mind and release it from it’s physical limitations — you must also redirect your vital life-force energy, so that it is no longer drained and lost in the outer world — and you must develop those areas of mind (not brain) that connects with your own higher reality that is not a part of the earth’s vibration. Ultimately, you want to bring about the next stage of birth, which we would call soul-birth.
