One night in 1998 while I was out of my body, I suddenly found myself in a place I can only describe as a paradise. It turned out to be a region where people go after death who have made substantial positive changes within themselves.
It looked very much like this world, as it is this world but in another dimension. But it felt wonderful, it was beautiful, and the people lived in harmony with each other and with nature.
The things in nature that are here were there too, like trees and fields of grass, but I could feel a beauty and harmony in that place that permeated right through me. Even as I breathed, it seemed as though I was breathing in divine beauty and as the leaves shimmered on the trees it was like a divine resonance moved in synchronicity within me. As I looked around I could see that weather was perfect and there were forests and fields where gentle breezes carried beautiful aromas.
The people were very happy and seemed unable to feel lower emotions. They didn’t get negative or depressed – it was as if these things had been removed from them and were prevented from entering their minds. This had the effect of making them very happy, but I was a little disappointed to see that they were not completely free of all kinds of emotions and drives.
This wasn’t the heaven people usually encounter when they have near-death experiences, it was a different one, it was for those who have died and who have eliminated at least half of their ego states. They are there because they have freed themselves from nature’s wheel. They stay in this region until the time arrives when they take another physical body and return to this physical earth. But that time is not soon, as they don’t return until a new golden spiritual age, when they have a much better opportunity to continue their spiritual development. To be born today in this time is to easily be lost to the egos and to succumb to personal degeneration, as the spiritual level of this age is so low.
A lot of people think it would be impossible to get rid of half of the egos, but it’s not really, it just takes a lot of dedication and some time.
