Dr. Raymond Moody Text Excerpt:
It releases something or it heals something in the human being so that they can become a more expressive realized person. As a psychiatrist how could you describe that?
Dr. Raymond Moody:
Well there is absolutely no doubt as you’ve said that people that go through this are just totally transformed. What they tell us is that when they come back their focus is often entirely new. This society of course and the way that it’s structured we are driven or directed my society to get into money and power and this sort of thing. The people say when they come back that this kind of value has absolutely no meaning to them and the thing that’s most important to them in their lives is the quality of their interpersonal relationships with learning how to love.
I think that is the universal after effect of this experience that the person becomes directed toward others and the process of learning to love one’s self and others. Now that doesn’t mean of course that they are made saints by this experience and they have a difficult time of it along the pathway just like the rest of us. One man, a psychiatrist friend of mine, who had a very profound near death experience telling me the following words, he said: this experience make your humanity even more of a burden.
Wow, is that right?
Dr. Raymond Moody:
That in effect that after having seen this vision of love you know that is what will really make you happy and everyone around you happy, but it’s still difficult. You have to keep working on it.
Another thing that we see with these patients that’s universal is that never after this experience do they in any way fear death. They say the experience to them is just absolutely profoundly assuring that there is a life after death and what we call death is a transition into another realm. So death for them holds no more fear. They say that when it comes and it’s natural course of events they are not going to be afraid as a matter of fact they are in effect looking forward to it.
