View Full Version : Young man with a heavenly experience on the TODAY Show.
03-22-2011, 08:55 AM
Yesterday a young boy was interviewed on the Today Show. He was there to inform about his new book - Heaven is real. In the interview his parents told about his illness - acute appendicitis and how he was on the brink of death with a massive infection. He was just a little kid, about 5. After he recovered he described heaven and informed his parents of things he would know nothing about.....meeting his father's grandfather, meeting his mother's miscarried baby-girl and facts about how old the population was in heaven.....between 20 and 30 - all young.
Roberta has told us these things in her book and on this forum. What a timely interview endorsing all she has written about.
Your information amazes me.....

Hi Barb! The wonder that you feel in seeing this new validation of what you have been learning is the reason why I have been so happy to spend most of my spare time for decades with my nose in old books. This research is addictive!
When I was in my twenties and first trying to understand my two experiences of light, I assumed that a lot of the afterlife evidence that I found was going to be inconsistent with the rest. It would be a bunch of theories and fantasies - one person insisting that there are houses built on clouds, another sure that heaven is on distant planets, and other such nonsense. But instead, I found that each afterlife account was like a pixel dot on one enormous picture. The afterlife evidence all fits together perfectly! You soon get to the point where you know more about what a dead person or a near-death experiencer is reporting than they do, since you have so much background already in place from reading other reports.
For example, while I haven't read Heaven Is For Real (I bought it, but now everything that I read is for possible review on this site), I already know from other accounts that the near-death experiences of children and others who are spiritually naive often contain religious elements, although most afterlife reports are not specifically religious. So I read accounts of this book, and I say, "Check!" when I note that apparently this boy spent some time in God's throne room. The evidence is pretty clear that God does not embody and it is likely there is no throne room or we would see more references to it. But the ascended beings (angels, if you prefer) who oversee our first afterlife moments will materialize a throne room if they think the newly-dead would find that comforting. And children, especially, are given what they need! To read that even aborted fetuses are immediately met by child-sized angels and carried to special villages where they can be raised in absolute love still brings tears to my eyes as I think of it. The last shall be first, indeed!

The video segment in question can be viewed here (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/42154263/), in case you missed it.
Hearing this boy speak about his experience sent a shiver up my spine. I'm starting to wonder if I should order a copy of his book, to see how much of his story matches up with TFOD. Maybe after I've cleared away some of my current reading list ;)

I have a friend, more of an acquaintance who I have been driving to work once a month - he is a scientist and is dying of brain cancer. He is incredible....do you think I should approach him about reading Roberta's book to him? I guess I need some encouragement - anyone out there?

Barb - I would ask him to read the book but with the advice that if he feels it's an affront to his beliefs, it's ok to lay it aside. If he decides to read it cover to cover, he may not necessarily agree with it but it may be a good idea to keep the info in his mind so he can be armed with some knowledge of the afterlife that may make transition easier for him.

Barb, I can assure you that giving someone a copy to read tends to work out better than trying to explain The Fun Of Dying on your ownf: when I tried to describe it to a friend, he thought I was saying that "all of reality is mined." Imagine my expression when he offered to lend his metal detector XD
Regarding the video, though, I will be very interested to hear from someone who has actually read this boy's book. It sounds like a pretty solid concordance.
