I believe that upon death, each of us is immediately in God consciousness. So, it’s been interesting to read Proof of Heaven, a fascinating account of a neurosurgeon’s experiences while he was in a coma.
It’s something when an expert says the brain’s ability is limited and that the brain eclipses higher realms of consciousness, inclining people to think that the material world is all there is. He says only when his brain stopped functioning (it was sitting in pus for days) was he able to see beyond the material to the real stuff.
Interesting, too, that people like Mother Teresa, the Dalai Lama, etc., were/are able to spend some time in those higher realms of consciousness without benefit of a coma.
Very good book.
