Does anyone know, what one has to do in order to be saved?
As in go to heaven etc.
The deconstruction of the perception that you are lost, is the key to the realization that you never were lost to begin with. In my opinion.
Doncha just love Greyhounds? They are the most loving dogs on earth! I have a friend who rescued one from a race track that was about to be eithanized because it lost three races. Beth had the dog for six years before her hips went bad and she couldn't walk. Beth used to take her out and potty her, carrying her both ways for two of those years. Sadly Sadie got cancer and had to be put down. I thought poor Beth would die of grief. I felt so helpless. I could do nothing for Beth but visualize her feeling better. I was given an opportunity to talk with her later and expressed my condolances. Beth replied that as bitter sweet as her love of Sadie was, she could only remember the sweetness. I guess life is a bit like dark chocolate from time to time. Thank you for loving your dog. Thank you for loving Greyhounds.

Date: Friday, January 16, 2009, 5:47 AMPERSONAL PROFILE:
Name: Brenda Alexander
Brief personal philosophy or law of life: You reap what you sow. God judges you (as do others) on what you do on this earth so it is up to us as individuals to give help whenever and wherever it's needed. Whatever you do, right or wrong, will be returned to you 7-fold.Dear Brenda,While it is certainly true that people on earth do judge each other, I hope that we can show you, through direct experiences via the NDE, that God does *not* judge us. It is one of the remarkable insights of NDErs who experience God during an NDE, that God is only Love. There is no judgement in the Unconditional Love that is God and is that of which you are composed.
The future?: Honestly, I don't think there's much of a future for any of us unless people change their ways of doing things and get back to the basics. We are a "greedy" group of people and by that I mean we need a new this and that, computers are obsolete 6 months after purchasing one and we've got to have the best of the best of all things material. We're greedy, whiny brats and it's all about "what's in it for ME". We are our own worst enemy, especially where the environment is concerned. I'm sorry, I get a little preachy on this subject.LINDA: <Smile> Sounds like you've had some less than pleasant experiences. It's interesting, though, how perception can change and is different amongst people. I am struck repeatedly by the inherent goodness of most people. While society/cultures may instill values that are questionable, I think people are innately good.
Favorite quote: My quote is this but it has nothing to do with psychic phenomena: "To know the love of a dog is to experience unconditional love in it's truest form!" Also, "Live each day as if it's going to be your last."LINDA: I am familiar with that love. This is my dog (greyhound), OnyxWith love,Linda.
