Neurosurgeon Dr Eben Alexander “s Near death Experience and LOVE

‘But none of that mattered, because I had already been given the one thing – the only thing – that , in the last analysis, truly matters…. It came in three parts , and to take one more shot at putting it into words ( because it was intially delivered wordlessly) it would run something like this –
If I had to boil this entire message down to one sentence it would run this way –
And if I had to boil it down further, to just one word, it would (of course) be, simply –
Love is, without a doubt, the basis of everything. not some abstract, hard -to – fathom kind of love but the day-to-day kind that everyone knows – the kind of love we feel when we look at our spouse and our children, or even our animals. In its purest and most powerful form, this love is not jealous or selfish, but unconditional. This is the reality of realities, the incomprehensibly glorious truth of truths that lives and breathes at the core of everything that exists or that will ever exist, and no remotely accurate understanding of who and what we are can be achieved by anyone who does not know it, and embody it in all of their actions.
Not much of a scientific insight? Well, I beg to differ. I’m back from that place and nothing could convince me that this is not only the single most important emotional truth in the universe, but also the single most important scientific truth as well.
I’ve been talking about my experience, as well as meeting other people who study or have undergone near – death experiences, for several years now. I know that the term unconditional love gets bandied about a lot in these circles. How many of us can grasp what that truly means?
I know, of course, why the term comes up as much as it does. It’s because many, many other people have seen and experienced what I did. But like me, when these people come back to earthly level. they are stuck with words , and words alone, to convey experiences and insights that lie completely beyond the power of words. It’s like trying to write a novel with only half the alphabet.
The primary hurdle that most NDE subjects must jump is not how to re-acclimate to the limitations of the earthly realm ….but how to convey the love they experienced out there actually feels like.
Deep down, we already know. Just as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz always had the capability to return home, we have the ability to recover our connection with that idyllic realm. We just forget that we do, because during the brain – based, physical portion of our experience, our brain blocks out or veils, that larger cosmic background, just as the sun’s light blocks the stars from view each morning. Imagine how limited our view of the universe would be if we never saw the star – spangled nighttime sky.
We can only see what our brain’s filter allows through. The brain – in particular it’s left, linguistic / logical part, that which generates our sense of rationality and the feeling of being a sharply defined ego or self – is a barrier to our higher knowledge and experience.
It is my belief that we are now facing a crucial time in our existence. We need to recover more of that larger knowledge while living here on earth, while our brains ( including our left-side analytical parts) are fully functioning. Science – the science to which I’ve devoted so much of my life – doesn’t contradict what I learned up there. But far, far too many people believe it does, because certain members of the scientific community who are pledged to the materialistic worldview, have insisted again and again that science and spirituality cannot co-exist.
They are mistaken. Making this ancient but ultimately basic fact more widely known is why I have written this book, and it renders all the other aspects of my story – the mystery of how I contracted my illness, of how I managed to be conscious in another dimension for the week of my coma, and how I somehow recovered so completely – entirely secondary.
The unconditional love and acceptance that I experienced on my journey is the single most important discovery I have ever made, or will ever make, and as hard as I know it’s going to be to unpack the other lessons I learned while there, I also know in my heart that this very basic message – one so simple that most children readily accept it – is the most important task I have.’
