11/24/15 Rabbi Rami Levy & 15 year Old Natan English Subtitles  Contributed by Cathy K.

This boy's experience has all the common components of the NDE which is noted in all cultures. I don't know if you are aware of the following, but it's important to know as a background :

1)  Orthodox Jews, such as those seen in this video, do not believe in 'Near Death Experiences'.  For them, the death of the body results in oblivion and the deceased human is only resurrected at the, "last trump on the day of Judgement", 'when the land and sea will give up their dead'.  Therefore, it is all the more interesting that this Orthodox Rabbi in this Jerusalem synagogue is taking the boy's story so seriously that he gets him to speak in the synagogue.  Despite what seems, to me, to be the almost 'grooming' of the boy to tell of his experience, there are many signs in the boys' demeanour & speech patterns that he is telling the truth and is remembering things he should include in his narrative and trying, but failing, to stick to a chronological sequence (almost impossible as we know), and,

2) Orthodox Jews are still awaiting Messhiac, the Messiah, and do not acknowledge Jesus as the Messiah.  However a few years ago a leading Jewish Mystic Sage &  Scholar died, over 100 years of age, and left a note to be opened a year after his death. When his sons open this note, (he had several sons, also advanced in age & also Rabbis), they found that the message he left said that the Messiah was Yeshuha (Jesus) and he could be expected in the near future - and after the death of Ariel Sharon.  If you wish to know more Google "message of rabbi kaduri" and you will find many references.

If Morning Never Comes, by Bill VandenBush, Old 101 Press, 13680 North Sandhill Drive, North Platte, NE  69101 (2003).

Summary on the inside page, "A soldier's story of his near-death experience in Vietnam and the insights and lessons learned from his excursion into a dimension of enlightenment." 

One day about a year and a half ago, I met Bill in person.  I was astounded by the warmth in his handshake and the spirit in his eyes.  For a moment, time stopped; so I could truly appreciate what a gift Bill was to the human race.  Spirit told him to speak, to tell the story.  Remarkably, despite having no vocal chords, Bill does tell his story.  Since that time, he's had a big fan - me. 

I attended a talk that Bill gave at Seattle IANDS yesterday and got his book.  Today, I read the whole thing - it is that captivating! 
This is a book of human triumph, every bit as much as it is a triumph of the spirit.  This book is for people who have been physically broken, spit upon,  and emotionally tortured.  This is a book of courage, patriotism, and honor; A warrior's tale if there ever was one.  It speaks of the difficulties of re-integrating with life in the U.S. from the perspective of a Vietnam veteran who went in as a naive boy of 18 years old and came home as a man a year later.

I agree with Shannon Anderson when she writes on the back of the book, "Bill is a living breathing miracle.  His compelling life story serves to illuminate the path between merely existing within the awareness of life's impermanence and a consciously chosen, awakened life, centered on the journey home to his truest self." 

And . . . don't forget to mention the near-death experience, which is the other aspect of integrating the reality of what he saw on the other side of life with our waking reality on earth.  Spirit walks with him daily and he isn't just saying that in the book.  You can tell when you talk with him that he's the genuine article.  I would heartily recommend this book to everyone, as it hits a very human chord common in all of us.

Juliet N's NDE  1/17/04. 
The best way I can describe the transition from being �alive� on the physical plane and the passage to the Other Side is like passing from one �room� to another.  You do not cease to be or lose consciousness; your consciousness simply shifts from one vantage point to another.  The experience changes; your outlook changes; your feelings change.  And the feelings I experienced were profound.  For me, it most certainly became that peace that surpasses all understanding�My transition was gradual as a result of having a terminal disease�as opposed to a sudden one incurred from accidents, heart attacks, etc.   I became aware of a �Being of Light� enveloping me.   Wow!  Reader's and Listeners will really enjoy this one!

Diane G's NDE  English expanded version  10/13/02.  Suddenly, we burst into the light and a whole new reality was revealed to me, similar to the physical world, but, in this higher vibration, more colorful, more beautiful, more amazing. I saw plants, trees, mountains, lakes, animals, and shimmering crystal-like buildings, some very large and ornate. I saw beings moving about, light beings, going about their daily lives. They don't have physical bodies, but they are distinct fields of energy. They don't walk, they float. They have lives much like ours, but without the struggles and sorrows. They are artists, musicians, dancers, singers, inventors, builders, healers, creators of magical things... things they will manifest in their next lifetime in the physical universe.  Great rafting NDE! A must read because of the vivid NDE descriptions and integration afterwards.  Also visit her website at

Lisa M's NDE
English expanded version  3/5/00. "The being of light showed me that all that was really important in life was the love we felt, the loving acts we preformed, the loving words we spoke, the loving thoughts we held. All that was made, said, done, or even thought without love was undone.Transcendent NDE at age 5 from near-drowning.  Truly remarkable! Also visit her website at
