Linda - Thanks for finding that.
I used to think the same as you, that when you're dead, that's it, but I think that may be the residues of JW thinking.
I, like Satanus, believe now that there is something else going on. We won't know till we get there, but I don't fear the 'black hole of eternal non existence' any more.
I have wondered for years why I knew the moment a relative of mine died, a few years ago. I had gone home from her death bed to make tea for the kids and was going to return in an hour. I was walking up the stair and very suddenly felt she had gone. A terrible loss over came me and I couldn't stop crying knowing she had gone. I was like almost at the point of hysteria with a sense of loss. My husband tried to calm me. The phone rang. A relative then told me that his relative had just died a few minutes ago.
When I saw her, she looked like an empty shell but I knew 'she' was not there anymore and she had gone....but gone somewhere. I didn't cry anymore. I knew she was all right.
This has happened to me, knowing that a relative has just died, three times. But I feel they are all right.
I had a near death experience myself having my last child. But there was only peace and calm in that unconsciousness and I remember there being nothing to be afraid of, at least for myself.
There is too much unexplained.
