Psychiatrist George Richie, author of one of the first books about the NDEs (near-death experiences), shared these three insights in a television interview with Joan Rivers many years ago:
1) Immense and unfathomable love (vs. immense and unfathomable judgement) is in the afterlife.
2) Death is a mere continuation of life. There is no cessation of existence.
3) Our thoughts direct and determine what our afterlife is like. We go where our thoughts take us. George used the analogy of school to explain this; “just as if you are in first grade you wouldn’t try to get into a graduate program, so we admit ourselves to the ‘program’ for which we are the most suited.”
Three more good reasons to choose positive, beautiful, marvelous, healing, hopeful, and kind thoughts…right now.
