Life beyond death

In the last two weeks, 2 separate people from quite different communities both sent me the link to Mellen-Thomas Benedict's account of his near death experience. In these challenging times, this is something which deserves as much publicity as it can get for the vision it offers of what lies beyond the consciousness of our present lives on Earth. It was wonderful to be reminded of it again.

Journey Through the Light and Back
Mellen-Thomas Benedict’s Near Death Experience

"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 the1970’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.

The jagging jag

With winter in the northern hemisphere approaching, the annual season of flu vaccinations is with us again. At least this year (so far ...) we haven't seen the ridiculous fear-mongering of last year which resulted in the needless slaughter of thousands of birds and governments spending millions on stockpiling anti-viral medication which is probably by now out of date. Big Pharma must have been laughing all the way to the bank.

So before trotting dutifully off to the doctor's surgery this time around, it might be an idea to pause for a moment and read this excellent article by Pat Thomas in The Ecologist. Although published last year, it remains no less relevent today.

The flu vaccine...a shot in the dark?
"If we truly knew about flu, and the lack of effectiveness of the vaccine being offered as protection, would we really be so obedient about getting the jab?"
