Opening to the Light
Weekly Meditations on Messages from Near-Death Experiences
Gary D. Guthrie
Both meditation and near-death experiences have been with humanity since the beginning of time. Meditation is usually quiet, subtle, and fulfilling, while the near-death experience is less subtle, immediate, and often overwhelming. Both offer a direct contact with the Light, our source of life.
The same power near-death experiencers encounter is within meditation. Contemplation can trigger an experience equal to that of a near-death experience. While you cannot prepare to have a near-death experience, you can prepare to have a transforming meditation, which this book is designed to help you achieve.
The preparation is simple: find yourself a quiet area, proceed to it regularly, taking with you anything that reminds you of the sacred; then relax and notice your breath; gradually allow yourself to sense the peace and love of the Divine Light.
Sincerity, enthusiasm, and perseverance are keys to successful meditations. When meditation and messages from near-death experiencers are combined, the results can be particularly rewarding.
Mellon-Thomas Benedict, a near-death experiencer quoted in this book, was told by the Light:
"Drink from the river of Light to your heart's content!"
That invitation is for everyone! No matter where you may be in your life's journey, this book offers 52 messages to absorb and ponder in seeking that which the source of life reveals freely to each of us.
In time, we become what we love and what inspires us.
