That secret is simply this: We all survive the physical death of our bodies. Our consciousness lives on, and upon our death in this Earthly dream, our consciousness transcends this physical reality and experiences an existence so amazing and powerful that the human language cannot even begin to describe it.
This is the message from Dr. Eben Alexander, author of the newly-published book, Proof of Heaven. I recently read the book and found it both fascinating and also confirming of several important theories I’ve been developing about the nature of life and the Creator. (See below.)
A lifelong science skeptic who never believed in God, Heaven or consciousness
Long before this book was ever written, Dr. Alexander was a practicing neurosurgeon and a lifelong “science skeptic.” He did not believe in consciousness, free will or the existence of a non-physical spirit. Trained in western medical school and surrounded by medical colleagues who are deeply invested in the materialist view of the universe, Dr. Alexander believed that so-called “consciousness” was only an illusion created by the biochemical functioning of the brain.
This is a view held by virtually all of today’s mainstream scientists, including physicists like Stephen Hawking who say that human beings are nothing more than “biological robots” with no consciousness and no free will.
Dr. Alexander would have held this view to his own death bed had it not been for his experiencing an event so bizarre and miraculous that it defies all conventional scientific explanation: Dr. Alexander “died” for seven daysand experienced a vivid journey into the afterlife. He then returned to his physical body, experienced a miraculous healing, and went on to write the book Proof of Heaven.
