Stories about near death experiences offer hope for something beyond this one lifetime for many, depending on your personal beliefs. This isn’t just the domain of Christianity but shared by many religions and spiritual practices. These stories fascinate us. Below is a brief interview with Eben Alexander as he talks about his own near death experience…something he dismissed as just the working of a dying brain.

Inspirational Book Quote:
I spent three days a week for 10 years educating myself in the public library, and it’s better than college. People should educate themselves – you can get a complete education for no money. At the end of 10 years, I had read every book in the library and I’d written a thousand stories.
