Our research into the next life started when our son Alexander passed away when he was 11 years old. We hope that this website can help parents who experienced a similar tragedy.

The slides (on left side) give an extraordinary insight into how children, who had Near Death Experiences (N.D.E.) tried to explain their experience both in words "I saw the sun and it had a happy face" and in drawings. {To slow down the slideshow, place your mouse cursor over a slide, black arrows (next,back) will appear and you can manually navigate through the slideshow}

It is almost impossible to put into words what the NDE survivor experiences so to explain the abstract with a concrete example is given by a person who had an NDE.  She said: “Imagine there is a huge warehouse, which is dark, and you live in this warehouse with one flashlight. Everything you know about this warehouse is seen through the light of this one small flashlight. Whenever you want to look for something, you may or may not find it, but it does not mean the thing does not exist. It is there, but you just haven't flashed your light on it. You can only see what your light is focused on. Then one day, someone flicks on a light switch, and for the first time, you can see the whole warehouse. The vastness of it is almost overwhelming, you can't see all the way to the end, and you know there is more than what you can see. But you do see how all the products are lined up on all the shelves, and you notice just how many different things there are in the warehouse which you never noticed. Then, even when the light switch goes back off, nothing can take away the understanding and clarity of your experience”.

 What is my Purpose? (under construction)

The purpose of life is to acquire qualities and virtues so that we can carry ourselves into the next world as spiritual giants. But this is not the end purpose of life. The end purpose is something far greater.

What is the end purpose of the soul?

Again look at nature and the Writings. Everything that begins an organic life begins with a seed. A tree begins its life with a seed. The same with a child. Look at a tree, it grows and grows then it reaches a point where it fulfils itself when it produces its own seed. It has produced its child. It has reached the purpose of its existence if it produces its fruit, its seed. Our soul is the same thing also. It has to produce a fruit. Remember, it begins at the time of conception, if grows spiritually and acquires virtures and perfections, but it has to eventually produce a fruit. Now we look at the tree again, we notice that the tree cannot produce a fruit by itself. It cannot become pregnant unless there is a relationship with another factor, the male and female factor. The tree is the female, it produces its fruit, but it has to be pollenated from another source. Our soul is the same thing, the soul is female in the same sense. If it has to produce a fruit it has to establish a spiritual, a mystical relationship with another agency. So then our soul becomes fertilized, becomes pregnant. Here again we see in nature this relationship is involuntary, we see the tree is pollenated in a certain way, but with the soul has a free will, it is like a marriage, it has to find a partner, it has to choose. Who will it find. Most people give their souls to this physical, material world. Then the child of that partnership is not worthy, that child is materialism. It is a lower partnership.

We have the choice

Many people come into the world and they die and they have nothing to show for their life but materialism, this is the fruit that their soul has produced. Because the soul has a free will, it has a choice. But let us see what God wants to do, which partner He has chosen for us. Where is the partner for our soul that we can establish a spiritual, a higher relationship. We are told in this day that agency is Baha'u'llah. He is the Manifestation of God for this age. Our soul must give itself to Him, establish a mystical intercourse, a spiritual relationship with the influences of His revelation. So that this may fertilize our souls, then our soul becomes the mother of something very precious, and gives birth to it. Then you look at that child which our soul has given birth to. It is known as the spirit of faith. This is the final purpose of our lives. It comes into being as soon as you say ` I believe' in Baha'u'llah. In the beginning it is very small, just a little flicker of light. This is very precious, you must look after it, help it to grow. Just like a mother who gives birth to a child, it is difficult, and it takes a lot of hard work to bring it up and train it and protect and perserve it and help it grow. This is the most important work.



    More and more scientists have come to the conclusion that after the brain dies consciousness survives.

    This conclusion is paradigm smashing for NDE skeptics who believe that limited brain functioning is only the final gasps of a dying brain, that hallucinates or creates a dream-like state. Many doctors who studied hundreds of NDE cases have refuted this argument explaining that an NDE experience cannot be fragments of dying brain as their observations are highly-organized, highly-lucid after they have been pronounced clinically dead. They are not dream-like or hallucinations. In fact these observations often include things that would be impossible for them to know. For example, they can see the tops of buildings. They can see far away. They described the surgical instruments that doctors used as well as the conversations.


    Perhaps the most compelling cases that prove an afterlife involves blind people describing highly visual events during their NDE. (see video 1)


    Doctors were astonished to hear the stories of children who died and were resuscitated. (Video 2) .Their experiences were in many aspects similar to what adults experienced.


    We also included a video of a renowned neurosurgeon (Harvard university) who didn't believe in afterlife but after his own N.D.E. changed completely. Now he is totally convinced that he was wrong and that indeed consciousness does continue after the brain has died.

    My wife Helen and I are members of the Baha'i Faith. We found consolation in the Writings of Baha'u'llah which has an amazing amount of information to impart about the reality that awaits us after death.It is a vision that offers consolation, as well as a power to invigorate our lives here and now because it explains the relevance of our performance in this life to what we will experience in the continuation of our lives beyond physical reality.

    This world is the womb world of the life to come

    For example, the Bahá'í Writings assert that the principal importance of this life is that it prepares us for that next stage of our existence.In the same way that our gestation in the womb prepares us for participation in this life, so this life prepares us for entrance into the spiritual realm.You could say that this world is the womb world of the life to come.Therefore, our experience in the physical world is not an end in itself.It is a period of preparation for our further growth and development beyond this life.
