Lynn's introduction is like being touched by wonder. Her Prologue is a Spiritual Experience; but it can be what it says if you are open to it. Her book is also an open door to the wonders revealed by the enormous number of people have died and come back to tell us of their experiences. I have read the statement that no one has ever come back from death to tell us, and they use this as an argument that death is the end. It is a most stupid argument and shows that they have never bothered to look – in fact Lynn’s book is based on her study of at least 2500 cases of memory of the wonder – yes wonder – of their life after death. But her words – the book – in a way is not about death but about life, its extra-ordinariness and yes – to be touched by wonder. ~ Tony Crisp, Dreamhawk
Lynn does something in this book nobody else has done. She shows you how near-death experiencers, in sharing what happened to them and what that meant to them, are actually describing the truth, the real truth, about each and every one of us… anywhere in the world! She gently and relentlessly puts the full-brunt of the near-death experience in your lap, right where you live and love and have your being. Near-death states strip away the trappings of the mind, to reveal the substance of soul. Thank you, Lynn, for helping to awaken us. ~ P.M.H. Atwater, LHD, author of Dying to Know You: Proof of God in the Near-Death Experience
One of the main ways in which we humans differ from the other animals is that from a very early age we know we will die. The great religions that shape human cultures are founded, in large part, on speculations as to what lies on the “other side” of death; heaven, hell, another life perhaps. Lynn has taken her own experience and the accounts of many who have approached (crossed) this mysterious boarder and extracted lessons addressing the deepest part of our being. Using specific aspects of the NDE as the focus of chapters, the author takes the reader through various metaphysical factors surrounding dying (and returning) to lead to the bottom line lesson. Time and space are illusions which means the world in which we live and our very individuality are all illusions as well. One of the many people who reported about her NDE experience said “This world, the universe, and even life itself, were an incredible game of pretend. … even this body I resided in and this whole three-dimensional reality was an illusion.” Another reported “Time had no meaning; everything was one and everything was so awe inspiring. I had no realization of who I was humanly anymore; everything was me and I was everything and everything was all connected.” These insights are part of the teachings of Zen, Taoism, and Advaita. Her writing style is flowing and very easy to read. Beneath the gentleness of her writing are powerful, and timely messages for the world. There is a lot of talk about Oneness these days and that’s great, but most don’t really get it yet – they aspire to it. It’s tricky stuff because the world supports our individuality and to understand Oneness, you must be able to see through the illusion of an individual self, and at the same time not invalidate the individual’s importance as part of the illusion. In this particular regard this book has helped me greatly. Thank you, Lynn. ~ Garrison Edwards, Amazon
