Eben Alexander is a neurosurgeon who ended up getting meningitis and going into a coma and having a Near Death Experience. He has a book out called “Proof of Heaven.” Eben will be on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday again this Sunday 12/09/2012 at 10 a.m. PT –check it out!–followed by a new Super Soul Sunday with lovely Elie Wiesel.
One thing I thought was interesting was how Eben (a previous skeptic) said you don’t have to have a Near Death Experience (NDE) to experience this amazing love, interconnectedness, etc. but that you could experience it through prayer, meditation. And Oprah (I have to get the quote off Tivo) said basically rephrasing what he said that in meditation when you are at that point of awareness when you step back and out of all the noise and clatter of your mind, that quiet small still voice is the voice of God and that is what is in everyone and THAT is where we are all one with God and the universe and where we are all connected.
