  1. As this lovely man points out, it is the intentions behind every act that count, not the act, nor our limited human-level judgement of it. Many spiritual teachers who have actual experience of the spiritual realms, and know something of what the perspective is from there, explain that all experience is meaningful and the important thing is awareness – that is, awareness of your deep personal intentions and the consequences of your actions/inactions to those around you. Sometimes this will happen on the battlefield, God does not judge that in itself as being "wrong" on any individual's level, it is simply an observation that this is where we are in our spiritual evolution (as a race, a planet) at this time, this is the world we have incarnated into, by our own choice. We must engage with the world as it is today, with all it's problems, all the different evolutionary levels of the people and society around us, otherwise we wouldn't be here. This is where we make our choices. To judge anyone from the point of our human blindness is not helpful, and once we ourselves cross over and the veil is lifted, we'll each see our own follies, our errors of judgement, and kick ourselves. (I'll be black and blue all over…)
    Since he described being interested in meditation from the age of 2, that's obvious he has had high spiritual training in a recent past life, or pre-incarnational training so he would carry that into this lifetime. His mission here is largely to experience what he has done and witnessed, and think about it, talk about it, and cause others to think. He's doing a great job of it!

  2. I was in hospital as a 6 year old with meningitis. I was in a room on my own. Think I must have been desperately afraid. It was dark and I heard what I can only describe as a mans voice. A calming male voice that told me I was going to be alright and not to worry. Maybe I was asleep and dreaming? Maybe I was in pain and medicated and delirious? I wish I could remember it clearer but I told my mum that "god talked to me last night". She remembered me saying it years later. God how i wish he would speak to me now and tell me everything will be alright.

  3. I want to thank you so much for sharing your military as well as spiritual experiences. I have had profound spiritual experiences since a young girl. I was very close to an uncle who passed away when I was about 14. He served 2 tours in Vietnam, came back in one piece physically, and died from addiction related illnesses years later. Very little appreciation for his time there and the Purple Heart he earned. And have had other family members who served there as well as era veterans. I’ve been having profound spiritual experiences related to him and that period of time. recently. In ways that I was not able to understand at that time. I am a social worker, and was wondering if there are any suggestions on how I may serve. But primarily I wanted to say thank you.

  4. My mind is getting blown away from listening to your story, your experiences! If people don’t believe in God then I don’t know what it would take for them to know that God has plans for all of us and that our soul is eternal!!

  5. The “ being abandoned at 8” part really made me cry. “ feeing being abandoned, but then being embraced by the universe” is such a beautiful and warm expression. Love this guy and his experience!

  6. Anyone having trouble wrapping their mind around an nde experiencer that can't wait to get himself out on a killing field? He's fascinating, but most come back knowing that our task here has to do with love, not killing. Very strange

  7. Perhaps one of the best all around talks I have ever listened to! Entertaining, educational and instructive and just what I was looking for! With much hate being generated in these past few weeks, I am seeking ways to combat it. Hate is the greatest ill known to humanity and we must find a way to end it. Like any disease, we must identify the sickly haters and socially quarantine them. Love is the medicine…but is sending love to them enough to heal this virulent and deadly disease?

  8. Now that’s a revered I might feel good about and be able to finally attend church and leave feeling good and not hurt or mistreated/confused/out of place/ annoyed. It’s not just one aspect it’s a lot…. being a NDEr… I have a problem with “something/stuff??”
    about churches… and church people.

  9. Rev. Bill McDonald,
    Thank you for your beautiful story, your spirit makes me want to do better human. I am so grateful for your story, I came here from Vietnam. My father served in Vietnam and passed away in 2018. Blessings to all your relations. Thank you for showing all of us the way home. Love is what matters in the end. namaste Diem

  10. 20mins in he mentioned a foreboding on meeting a young man. This reminded me of something similar that was experienced by Michael Bentine ( a British /Peruvian comedian ) he served as an intelligence officer with a Polish bomber squadron in WWII, and had the unhappy ability to identify those who would not return that night. He found it distressing but prayed with the padre for the phenomenon to pass and it did. He was a very spiritual man, and I highly recommend you read his autobiography A door called Summer.
