Is death just a facade causing you an unnecessary fear of the unknown that prevents you from living?  In this brilliant video, philosopher Alan Watts tempts you to contemplate the idea that your notion of death may not exist.

I just saw your post. I am curious what did you see when you briefly died on the operating table? I hope I am not be rude asking this question.

It was really strange it was like I was awake in a really dark space at first. There were no floors or walls or even a ceiling and yet I knew and could feel like I was moving through it on like a breeze. Suddenly ahead I saw an old victorian style crumbly red brick wall which oddly glowed. When I got closer to it I realised it wasn’t glowing but the colours were just so vibrant they were humming almost a glow from within. I then saw plants from behind the wall, so beautiful big blooms and the colour was just so i tense like a light was coming from inside each petal, blade of grass. I remember moving to the side of the wall and seeing an opening where a small garden gate was open almost inviting me in. This is when I saw my Grandparents stood amongst the shrubery of what is essentially a typical english garden. My Grandfathers expression was a lool of anger as he sternly shook his head but my Grandmother was really pleased to see me. It was really odd as I suddenly wanted to know the pattern of my grandfathers trousers but where in this world you walk to take a closer look it was like I thought it and suddenly I could see it in great blown up detail in my head like it was projected there. I suddenly then had this feeling of being pulled or lifted up to go over the wall but I didn’t want to go. I tried to reach out with my arms and legs to stop myself, to grab the wall a d quickly realised I didn’t have any. When I looked down thinking I would see my body, all I saw was a ball of pure white light and actually then realised what was happening. I knew if I went over the wall I would die and started to panic as I didn’t want to leave my mother or my pet dog. As soon as I started to think of them I could feel the pull backwards, back the way I came. In my mind I told my grandparent’s that I only wanted to visit and that I loved them so much. The next feeling I had was like I dropped to the floor from a height and this is when I finally woke up. The doctor said as I came round ‘we thought we nearly lossed you there’. My bed and I was covered in so many wires and there were mire people around my bed than any other in the recovery room.

Later when I asked had I died briefly they said yes but got me back in time

Sorry this answer was typed on my mobile and seems to be showing up funny on this page.

I would have been able to receive this so much easier without the overbearing music.

The words and meaning of this message do not need nor are they enhanced by the music, but are in themselves, enough.

NooNoo… Thank you so so much, for sharing your NDE!! Wow. I’ve read many articles and books about this, and I just love hearing about all the different experiences people have had. I’m especially interested in the way you describe the colors…I’ve heard very similar stories about how color is indescribable “over there”. I see colors here, that are like that….just bursts of color that suddenly appear and then disappear quickly. Anyway, thank you again.
