I don’t really think there’s anything afterwards.
00:37

00:56
and I died on the table.
00:58
It took a while to revive me
01:00
but I don’t remember any great, white light or anything.
01:03
It’s just dead.
01:04
– I do believe that existence remain for many lifetimes.
01:07
– Do you remember any of your past lives?
01:09
– One of the past lives that I remember
01:11
is when I was a spiritual leader in the year 1,400
01:15
and I got assassinated.
01:17
– What is the good thing that you get out
01:20
of tapping into your past lives?
01:21
How does it help you?
01:22
– The benefit of tapping into past life
01:25
is knowing your soul.
01:26
When you get to know your soul,
01:27
you get to know yourself.
01:29
– Are you afraid of dying?
01:30
– No, I’ve died before
01:32
and it was no big deal.
01:33
– Oh absolutely, yeah.
01:34
You think about it and you’re like, whoa,
01:35
like there’s going to be a point in my life
01:37
where I just cease to exist.
01:38
– No, I’m not afraid of death.
01:39
– When its my time its my time.
01:40
– Interesting.
01:41
Were you ever scared of it?
01:42
– Yeah, but–
01:44
– What changed?
01:45
– I started, I got a better relationship with God.
01:47
Had more faith in Him.
01:49
– I’m not afraid of dying, no.
01:50
Right now I understand that we have an eternity
01:54
ahead of us and–
01:55
– That’s relaxing.
01:57
– Oh I’m definitely so scared.
01:58
I think the fear is just
01:59
that I’m not happy with where I am now
02:02
so if I were to die now
02:04
then I wouldn’t have accomplished really anything.
02:05
And I’m so young
02:06
so I don’t want to feel like I could have done more,
02:09
I could be doing more now
02:10
if this is really like it.
02:11
– I choked on a lobster when I was a teenager.
02:14

02:20
and they couldn’t notice anything
02:21
