Default Your Final Moments - What comes to mind?

Imagine when the time comes - that you are in your final moments of this lifetime. In those moments when you reflect back on the things/people/places and experiences, what will you think are your most cherished and significant experiences? Your ego may want to say things like "I built this empire - or my job helped others - or I was an inspiration to many" etc. But try to move past this - when it really comes down to it - what where those moments where you said, "this was worth the ride, this time around".


So far, a few of my fav's (ahem - I'm not going anywhere soon!):

- moving beyond indifference or objections when others beliefs don't match mine - tolerance, acceptance and respect.

- learning and healing from the lessons of greed

- discovering the power of what we call the subconscious mind, and it's holographic connection to others sentience and experiences

- discovering how to move beyond knowledge (discovery and fact recall) into expanding focus and meta experiential wisdom

- nature, enjoying, traveling,

- sex, pleasure

- watching my children grow and benefit from my own awareness, openness

- connecting to others thru the human core of compassion, empathy and love

- using discernment - abandoning judgment and righteousness

What about yours?

the truth stays hidden so the ride can continue. this ride is too important and has its purpose driven by material. the end will not come because we dont even know the beginning, this ride has been perfected.

Here are somethings from hidden texts which come to mind : I thought about this in relation to dying and reincarnating (or maybe not reincarnating - but something else)

"When you see your likeness, you are happy. But when you see your images that came into being before and that neither die nor become visible, how much you will bear!" (Gospel of Thomas)

"This soul needs to follow another soul in whom the spirit of life dwells, because she is saved through spirit. Then she will never be thrust into flesh again" (Secret book of John)

"Yipeee - here we go again"
"At last"
"Freedom!!!!"

Well none of these really.

I hope that everything happens in a calm way so I can get to think about stuff like this and not in some inconvenient survival situation that gets in the way of things.

Great answer, I agree. In fact that's the only frightening thing about death I think, not death itself or just passing on to somewhere else, but totally not ever knowing in what way it will come about.

If I had to choose, 'Natural Causes' sound nice to me, maybe a quick heart attack from my last cigarette, yeah, that sounds good enough.

I died and came back after 6 minutes.
You don't 'reflect back on things...' etc.
At least, I didn't.
The only thought I had was that I lived according to my heart, and I had no regrets for doing so.
You have to face yourself, as if you look into a mirror.
If you feel that you haven't got anything to blame yourself for - a clean concsious, so to speak - you can go anywhere you want.

I think I know I came back because I played a crucial part in someone else's life - that I saved. She's someone who has (had) an influence on the lives of many others - mainly in a positive way.

The moment you die, you realize how futile time is.
All those years you've spend here, suddenly feel like a second.

When you die you are completely alone.
There's no one you can call on the phone, etc.

If you have the guts, you can leave the Earth & go anywhere you want in universe.

Choices, choices...

I'm very interested in hearing in more detail what your experience was if you're willing to share. Did you have the typical white/golden light experience?

Yes, but in my case it felt as if I was in a 'waiting room'. It was as if 'the Gods' were argueing over my faith. Me, I didn't care. So the choice was made for me.

I recognized dying as something I had experienced many times before.

It's a wonderful feeling.

But it's MY experience.
I'm an 'old' soul.
I don't know if it feels the same for everybody.
I do think that if you're George W. Bush, dying is not an option.

Think I would have a laugh that I took it all so seriously, well most of the time and I would hope that I moved on to the celestial realms and dident have to come back to the limitations of ego.

I also had a near death experience when I was 12. 3 Weeks after a car crash I briefly died. For anyone interested I wrote about part of it here WWW.barronbourne.blog.com bottom of the page. Obviously I was too young to look back and the circumstances of trauma don't allow for clarity of mind. But I gotta tell ya guys.....it's groovy.

Knowing what I know I don't think I'll look back at all. I may regret leaving my wife behind but I'll embrace the light. Hopefully I'll have and show remorse for my wrong doings to others but there is a great adventure ahead before I'm scrubbed clean of memories and reseeded elsewhere.

Not being completely facetious here, but the Power of Now by Eckart Tolle suggests that the past and the future are tricks played by the mind and the Ego.

Notice I use a capital E, because it's MY Ego I'm talking about of course...

By living in the past or the future, we are avoiding the present.. and that is where everything happens

So to logically extend this, I'd have to say that I'd like to be able to be fully aware and present in that final moment, and not spend it looking back.

Easy to say mind... in the event I might well be screaming ...

"Muuummmmmyyyyyyy !!!!! "

Bit disturbing that ‘the gods’ manage to argue in the ‘light’ and that choices can be made for you. I have a feeling that I know what you are saying as my experience was that I was pushed back here without any choice – this was experienced using past life regression and it was not NDE.

Just read about your near death experience. Beautifully written. I’m now intrigued to hear about the event you’ve not written about yet?!

No more recycling this time, stay away from tunnels of light and wheels of karma, dont let them trick you... (again)



Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
Where have you been?
It's alright we know where you've been.
You've been in the pipeline, filling in time,
Provided with toys and 'Scouting for Boys'.
You bought a guitar to punish your ma,
And you didn't like school, and you
know you're nobody's fool,
So welcome to the machine.

Welcome my son, welcome to the machine.
What did you dream?
It's alright we told you what to dream.
You dreamed of a big star,
He played a mean guitar,
He always ate in the Steak Bar.
He loved to drive the Jaguar.
So welcome to the Machine.

I probably will say I enjoyed the experience, lessons and many of the people. It also will be very important for me to still see happiness left behind for others to enjoy. I doubt Iíll have many if any regrets but if the world is still in a hellish state during my departure, good riddance. I can only hope the righteous and innocents find their way to their own sovereignty and salvation.

Peace

i have heard many ppl having nde's to have thought of their loved ones in those moments ... and i figured this would be so ...

i've been three times lucky with this ... not certain if lucky is the appropriate label ... but for whatever reason ... i remain to be here in the now ...

for my own experiences ... it was as if i'd just been dropped in the center of the ocean ... not within waves but in the calmness of the water ...

and i'm gently treading water ... just enough movement to remain afloat ...

not another person in sight ... being within the vastness of the waters upon this earth ... as well as being within the infinite sky ... the portal to the beyond ...

silently ... hearing ... feelling and knowing ... to just be ...
and waiting ... patiently waiting ... no longer did i know of the concept of time for it did not exist in those moments ...

alone ... but not alone ...

feeling the small grain of sand my life experience has been upon the infinite beach of all that is ... how small my life here felt ... and yet ... so very very significant in the grand scheme of what actually is ...

and at the same juncture ... feeling ... oneness with all ...
with higher self ... with everything on this plane ...
and oneness with god ... with source ...

and feeling ... the extension of the creator of which i am ...
and knowing ... i Am ...

but above all ... treading water ever so slowly ... within what i felt to be an endless ocean ... and all i coud feel ... was beauty ...
beauty within me ... beauty surrounding me ... beauty beyond ...

and knowing ... greater and with more clarity that i have ever known ... the core of the beauty i felt ... to be only one thing ...
that being love ...

how humbling that felt ... to have experienced love in that way ...
and how blessed i felt ... for my life here in the now ... and for all my life experiences on this plane ...
and feeling blessed ... to BE love ...
and knowing ... there is nothing greater ...

these experiences have always been the same ...
no fear ... never any fear ...

never was my time i guess ...
i simply figured they couldn't make up their minds about me ...
but i do know ... everything happens for a reason ... and i am quite happy to still be here ... for my heart speaks ... it is ... and will be ... the best of 'time' ... to do just that ...

and what i've come to know ... is that our final moments ... are never final ...
but initial moments ... of what is beyond ...

much love ...

Interesting viewpoints!! This question popped into my mind and has been mulling about - since I've been there at a few family/friends final moments. I could really feel and sense their - "what really mattered" about the past lifetime. It had me thinking as sometimes we get caught up in the day-to-day consciousness, habits and distractions and shift our focus of such things. I keep reminding myself - "what really matters"? - find that it helps to keep me peaceful during difficult times.

As far as where we may be headed, that's another topic. I have to say if you follow the accounts of NDE's, it's easy to form a perspective that there is a common experience - yet I feel those accounts are limited to a certain awareness spectrum, and thus are translated in our language from only what we can comprehend within our limits of consciousness - yet I feel there is so much more!

I had a friend pass on a few years ago, his eyes were so haunting in those final moments. His last words were "I'm ready to go on and continue this adventure - wherever that may be".

to burst out singing like William Blake...

He died ... in a most glorious manner. He said He was going to that
Country he had all His life wished to see & expressed Himself Happy,
hoping for Salvation through Jesus Christ ó Just before he died His
Countenance became fair. His eyes Brighten'd and

he burst out Singing of the things he saw in Heaven.
