Howard Storm's Near-Death Experience

This is a wonderful interview with a former atheist, professor and chairman of the art department at the Northern Kentucky University. Howard Storm died and found himself in hell before being lifted out by angels and shown the typical near-death experience with tunnels of light, telepathic loving angels, a life review containing every thought and feeling he'd ever had as well as every thought and feeling of those he'd ever interacted with. Today Howard Storm is a Senior Pastor of Covington United Church of Christ.

Bashar - Spiritual Messages

Bashar is supposedly an other-dimensional entity channeled by Darryl Anka. While I remain suspicious of the concept of channeling, I often find what channels say to be fascinating. It's also interesting that most of the information gleaned through channels like Seth, Ra, Abraham and this Bashar is all quite complementary. These two videos resonated with me, what do you think?

Michael Beckwith - What's Your Pissocity Level?

Thanks to Teye for sending me this uplifting video. Michael Beckwith (from The Secret) gives an inspirational talk with all the energy of a Southern Baptist preacher, but with a spiritual (not "religious") message. How pissed off are you? What is your "Pissocity Level" and what are you willing to do about it? Are you like the majority of the population - living life on the lay away plan, pining for some better future existence? Have you developed intricate coping and defense mechanisms to - kind of - make it through your human experience; hoping that in the future you'll somehow be different? Have you come just to hang out and exist between birth and death, and live a life that you read about in an insurance actuary column? If you are upset about your current situation or condition in life; then that is an indication that you are not planning or working on changing it!

More of Bruce Lee's Philosophies

Here's another musical montage video overlayed with great philosophical Bruce Lee quotes. If you're a martial artist or an armchair philosopher I highly recommend Bruce Lee's writings. Thanks in part to the influence of Bruce Lee's books and movies, I'm now a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo, and have a B.A. in Philosophy.

Peter Russell - From Science to God

The above is an abridged DVD presentation of Peter Russell's latest book on consciousness research, "From Science to God." I highly recommend both the video and his book which is available to read in full for free on his website. Read Peter Russell's "From Science to God"

Nothing in Western science predicts that any living creature should be conscious. It is easier to explain how hydrogen evolved into other elements, how they combined to form molecules, and then simple living cells, and how these evolved into complex beings such as ourselves than it is to explain why we should ever have a single inner experience.” -Peter Russell, “From Science to God”
