Thanks for posting Dechen.
Ones life changes a lot, one is not afraid from death anymore and possible can see life very clearly as a must to realize its nature. There is a big sadness because beings are harming each other constantely due to belief in selfnesses. But there is a knowing behind, which is appaering like home and a desire to know how the conceptual world arises. One wants only one thing and that is a teacher to guide out of that crazy painful conceptual world and the profound wish to be able to help all out of that.
It is difficult to understand how it is possible one just lives for oneself, all teachings from the Buddha, the 6 realms are not some instructions in a book, the pain of beings is seen.
I think there is maybe by some who had NDE experience a kind of dissapointment due to not possible to explain and no chance to get understanding. But in case of a 'buddhist', it is not needful people believes or not, it is given a strenght, so strong which need no explanation, rather practice by guidance of the master who knows "both worlds" is the importance.
He is recognized since one recognizes selfless nature, not to compare with whatever.
Then all is practice to not be caught in that conceptual created madness and one has the genuine wish to help all, but there must be openess to listen.
Many can give negating comments about NDE, these are bathing in the compassion, comments are part of that crazy world in which beings are suffering due to their ideas of solid world. Of course, it is sad to see perfect beings doing so, caught in idea distortion, compassion is the answer.
A story from a so called delog.
But I think then such delog finally lives not in a labeling world anymore, since all phenomena must be liberating in itself, at least so I guess.
“Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones—all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
