Some musings and thoughts from this journey through life.

Each week I will share an aphorism/thought from, "Tiny Thoughts for Personal Transformation", or just a general thought, to encourage people to see the world from a different perspective.

These thoughts are meant to be contemplative rather than instructive and, as people read the thought they might ponder: What does this thought mean to me? Does this thought resonate with me? Do I agree or disagree with it? Can it be used in any way to improve the quality of my life? Can it benefit those I love?

 Beside each thought/aphorism I will add some additional information or insights that might be of use to the reader. I say "might" because I know that we all read things differently and anything that I share is my truth and is clouded by my bias; therefore, what I find useful or important may be insignificant to somebody else. I never wish to impose on anyone else, nor do I wish to give advice on how somebody should or should not do, so please only use what works for you and leave what doesn’t.

The key is that THOUGHTS ARE THINGS, they create our life, they determine our future and, by expanding our awareness, we become empowered and can more readily transform our lives into what we want it to be.

 ** Sorry for the recent delay between posts, I am just finishing my next book - More Tiny Thoughts for Personal Transformation - and it has taken up most of my time. **

An Evening with Eben

Posted by tinythoughtguy on June 13, 2013 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)

Last night we had the pleasure of spending several hours at a presentation put on by the Vancouver branch of IONS: the guest speaker was Dr. Eben Alexander.

For those that might not know of him, Dr. Alexander is a neurosurgeon and the author of the best-selling book, “Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife.” I don’t want to spend a great deal of time discussing the specifics of Dr. Alexander’s experience, suffice it to say that he had a condition that would normally be terminal and, for him and for us, it fortunately was not. I understand that there will always be skeptics, no matter what the proof or who the messenger, but not having met Dr. Alexander before, I went in with an open mind and I was very pleased and rejuvenated by his discussion. I believe that he is sincere man and he is very enthusiastic in sharing is experience.

In the past, a number of people have had experienced NDE’s and often times the cynics will use the view that these people were simply unaware of how the brain works and they were simply having a dream, fantasy, etc. This is the first time that somebody as knowledgeable as Dr. Alexander has had such an experience.  I truly believe that the fact that this happened to somebody with Dr. Alexander’s skill and knowledge will prove to be a significant turning point for the investigation into the connection between brain and consciousness. Hopefully Dr. Alexander’s story will resonate with people in the scientific community and also in the community at large: after all, we are all just people on a journey and the more we come to see the magnificence of it, the better off we all are.

Make it marvelous,
