The brain – in particular the left-side linguistic/logical part, that which generates our sense of rationality and the feeling of being a sharply defined ego or self – is a barrier to our higher knowledge and experience.
Certain members of the scientific community who are pledged to the materialist worldview, have insisted again and again that science and spirituality cannot coexist.
They are mistaken.
The unconditional love and acceptance that I experienced on my journey [NDE] is the single most important discovery I have ever made, or will ever make.

…sense of rationality and the feeling of being a sharply defined ego or self – is a barrier to our higher knowledge and experience.
Funny how we’re born of this earth with ego and spend the rest of our days learning to let it go.
I agree, it is odd.
I am adding links to Eben’s sites above in the text, and I also plan on doing more astro/NDE research. I watched this incredible vid yesterday and was fascinated by how these two stories open similar doors of perception shifts.
