What Happens When We Die?

A “near death” experience…but wait…

You read about the Chinese woman in New York who suffered a debilitating illness that left her paralyzed from the neck down, dependent upon a respirator to breathe, and a feeding tube for nourishment.

She had petitioned the courts to let her disconnect herself from the machines that were keeping her alive.

And, the courts agreed she had that right, that she could stop her life support technology.

But, perhaps because of her parents deep spiritual belief that this would be suicide, preventing her from reaching heaven, she changed her mind at the last minute.

Too often, in our society, decisions like this one, that are deeply personal, moral issues are politicized, which can only serve to increase the suffering of the family involved.

But what if there was proof of heaven?

What if a Harvard-educated neurosurgeon claimed a near-death experience had totally changed his beliefs about what happens to us when we die?


This video cannot do justice to the richness of the persuaded mind of Dr. Eben Alexander. But to get to that richness, you need to just read his words in this short article in this week’s NEWSWEEK. It’ll take 2 minutes.

Death is the one experience that is universal to life on our planet. Every living thing, every living person — you — will die at some point.

And perhaps that’s why I think this is a topic of endless fascination.

Dr. Alexander has a book, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey Into The Afterlife, which will be released in a couple of weeks.

I cannot imagine a more compelling guest for your show.

I realize some of you won’t have any interest in a topic of this depth. I can hear the reasoning: It’s morbid. It’s depressing. It’s too complex for our station.

Perhaps. All I can do is suggest.

And if, like me, you’re interested in a deeper look at the science of what happens when we die, watch this longer video during lunch.

As Dr. Alexander says, “I have great belief, and knowledge that there is a wonderful existence for our souls outside of this earthly realm, and that is our true reality, and we all find that out when we leave this earth.”
