Near Death Exper.
Apologies if this has been previously posted.
Mellen-Thomas Benedict is an artist who survived a near-death experience in
1982. He was dead for over an hour and a half after dying of cancer. At the
time of his death, he rose up out of his body and went into the light.
Because of his near-death experience, he was able to bring back scientific
discoveries. Mr. Benedict has been closely involved in the mechanics of
cellular communication and research dealing with the relationship of light
to life called Quantum Biology. This research is providing dramatic new
perspectives on how biological systems work. Mr. Benedict has found that
living cells can respond very quickly to light stimulation resulting in,
among other things, high speed healing. He is a researcher, inventor and
lecturer who holds six U.S. patents.
In 1982 I died from terminal cancer. The condition I had was inoperable, and
any kind of chemotherapy they could give me would just have made me more of
a vegetable. I was given six to eight months to live. I had been an
information freak in the 1970's, and I had become increasingly despondent
over the nuclear crisis, the ecology crisis, and so forth. So, since I did
not have a spiritual basis, I began to believe that nature had made a
mistake, and that we were probably a cancerous organism on the planet. I saw
no way that we could get out from all the problems we had created for
ourselves and the planet. I perceived all humans as cancer, and that is what
I got. That is what killed me. Be careful what your world view is.
I remember waking up one morning at home about 4:30 am, and I just knew that
this was it. This was the day I was going to die. So I called a few friends
and said goodbye. I woke up my hospice caretaker and told her. I had a
private agreement with her that she would leave my dead body alone for six
hours, since I had read that all kinds of interesting things happen when you
die. I went back to sleep. The next thing I remember is the beginning of a
typical near-death experience. Suddenly I was fully aware and I was standing
up, but my body was in the bed. There was this darkness around me. Being
out of my body was even more vivid than ordinary experience. It was so vivid
that I could see every room in the house, I could see the top of the house,
I could see around the house, I could see under the house.
There was this light shining. I turned toward the light. The light was very
similar to what many other people have described in their near-death
experiences. It was so magnificent. It is tangible; you can feel it. It is
alluring; you want to go to it like you would want to go to your ideal
mother's or father's arms.
As I began to move toward the light, I knew intuitively that if I went to
the light, I would be dead.
So as I was moving toward the light I said, "Please wait a minute, just hold
on a second here. I want to think about this; I would like to talk to you
before I go."
To my surprise, the entire experience halted at that point. You are indeed
in control of your near-death experience. You are not on a roller coaster
ride. So my request was honored and I had some conversations with the
light. The light kept changing into different figures, like Jesus, Buddha,
Krishna, mandalas, archetypal images and signs.
I asked the light, "What is going on here? Please, light, clarify yourself
for me. I really want to know the reality of the situation."
I cannot really say the exact words, because it was sort of telepathy. The
light responded. The information transferred to me was that your beliefs
shape the kind of feedback you are getting before the light. If you were a
Buddhist or Catholic or Fundamentalist, you get a feedback loop of your own
stuff. You have a chance to look at it and examine it, but most people do
As the light revealed itself to me, I became aware that what I was really
seeing was our Higher Self matrix.
So the light was showing me the Higher Self matrix. And it became very clear
to me that all the Higher Selves are connected as one being, all humans are
connected as one being, we are actually the same being, different aspects of
the same being. It was not committed to one particular religion. So that is
what was being fed back to me.
So as I asked the light to keep clarifying for me, I saw in this magnificent
mandala how beautiful we all are in our essence, our core. We are the most
beautiful creations. The human soul, the human matrix that we all make
together is absolutely fantastic, elegant, exotic, everything. I just cannot
say enough about how it changed my opinion of human beings in that instant.
I said, "Oh, God, I did not know how beautiful we are."
At any level, high or low, in whatever shape you are in, you are the most
beautiful creation, you are.
I was astonished to find that there was no evil in any soul.
I said, "How can this be?"
The answer was that no soul was inherently evil. The terrible things that
happened to people might make them do evil things, but their souls were not
evil. What all people seek, what sustains them, is love, the light told me.
What distorts people is a lack of love.
The light seemed to breathe me in even more deeply. It was as if the light
was completely absorbing me. The love light is, to this day, indescribable.
I entered into another realm, more profound than the last, and became aware
of something more, much more. It was an enormous stream of light, vast and
full, deep in the heart of life. I asked what this was.
The light responded, "This is the RIVER OF LIFE. Drink of this manna water
to your heart's content."
So I did. I took one big drink and then another. To drink of life Itself! I
was in ecstasy.
Then the light said, "You have a desire."
The light knew all about me, everything past, present and future.
"Yes!" I whispered.
I asked to see the rest of the universe; beyond our solar system, beyond all
human illusion. The light then told me that I could go with the Stream. I
did, and was carried through the light at the end of the tunnel. I felt and
heard a series of very soft sonic booms. What a rush!
Suddenly I seemed to be rocketing away from the planet on this stream of
life. I saw the earth fly away. The solar system, in all its splendor,
whizzed by and disappeared. At faster than light speed, I flew through the
center of the galaxy, absorbing more knowledge as I went. I learned that
this galaxy, and all of the universe, is bursting with many different
varieties of LIFE. I saw many worlds. The good news is that we are not alone
in this universe!
As I rode the stream on and on, I could eventually see a huge light coming.
I knew it was the first light; the Higher Self light matrix of our solar
system. Then the entire solar system appeared in the light, accompanied by
one of those velvet booms.
I saw that the solar system we live in is our larger, local body. This is
our local body and we are much bigger than we imagine. I saw that the solar
system is our body. I am a part of this, and the earth is this great created
being that we are, and we are the part of it that knows that it is. But we
are only that part of it. We are not everything, but we are that part of it
that knows that it is.
I could see all the energy that this solar system generates, and it is an
incredible light show! I could hear the music of the spheres. Our solar
system, as do all celestial bodies, generates a unique matrix of light,
sound and vibratory energies. Advanced civilizations from other star systems
can spot life as we know it in the universe by the vibratory or energy
The light explained to me that there is no death; we are immortal beings. We
have already been alive forever! I realized that we are part of a natural
living system that recycles itself endlessly. I was never told that I had to
come back. I just knew that I would. It was only natural, from what I had
Every human has a different life and set of questions to explore. Some of
our questions are universal, but each of us is exploring this thing we call
life in our own unique way. So is every other form of life, from mountains
to every leaf on every tree.
It was not a near-death experience. I experienced death itself for at least
an hour and a half.
Within three days, I was feeling normal again, clearer, yet different than I
had ever felt in my life. My memory of the journey came back later. I could
see nothing wrong with any human being I had ever seen. Before that I was
really judgmental. I thought a lot of people were really screwed up, in fact
I thought that everybody was screwed up but me. But I got clear on all that.
We are each both male and female. We experience this in the womb and we
experience this in reincarnation states. If you are looking for that
ultimate soul mate outside of yourself, you may never find it; it is not
I had a descent into what you might call hell, and it was very surprising. I
did not see Satan or evil. My descent into hell was a descent into each
person's customized human misery, ignorance, and darkness of not-knowing. It
seemed like a miserable eternity. But each of the millions of souls around
me had a little star of light always available. But no one seemed to pay
attention to it. They were so consumed with their own grief, trauma and
misery. But, after what seemed an eternity, I started calling out to that
light, like a child calling to a parent for help. Then the light opened up
and formed a tunnel that came right to me an insulated me from all that fear
and pain. That is what hell really is.
Since my return I have experienced the light spontaneously, and I have
learned how to get to that space almost any time in my meditation. Each one
of you can do this. You do not have to die to do this. It is within your
equipment; you are wired for it already.
The body is the most magnificent light being there is. The body is a
universe of incredible light. Spirit is not pushing us to dissolve this
body. That is not what is happening.
