have you had a NDE? i know you mentioned that you had a heart attack recently...but did you have a NDE of some kind of afterlife or experience of a world \ dimension beyond the physical?
<snip - AK>

chazSingh ji you may have a point but to his credit, Tejwant Singh ji has tried to clarify this in an old thread as follows,
This subject is a bit tertiary to thread topic so we should control ourselves from going in tangents.

You may also refer to an older thread in this regard as there was good dialog in that too,

I believe there is a significant difference between OBE and NDE. NDEs I never had but OBEs I am having continuously including when I am typing this post ;)

Sat Sri Akal.
NDE's are just that...near death experience...i.e. near actual physical death or actual physical death...
but people who have had NDE's also use the term OBE to describe the experience...because they are out of body at the time :)

what do you think is important about these experiences? what do we learn? how can we use them to steer us in a positive manner during the rest of our lives? i think the outcome is more important that all the definitions and study into them.

For me, they provide actual first hand evidence that i am more than just my physical body. they confirm i am part of something infinite, they confirm that waheguru exists within me, and also thus exists within everyone and everything. they have taught me to trust in Waheguru, and allow Waheguru to show me what is right for me, and not allow my own desire to interfere. there seems to be endless i want to get lost in it all? no...i need a focus...a destination...and that can only be Waheguru...otherwise wandering aimlessly in the 'beyond' is just the same as wondering aimlessly in this physical dimension..

god bless ji

This is my own research and work, from quite a long time ago. I no longer have the word file so I had to screenshot from the ebook pages. :( I am the author so there is no issue lol. I went by alias Synergy when I was younger. These pages (read them in order) go into various theories about OBEs and by extension NDEs. A couple
Pages I have to put in next message as I can only attach 5 at once.
