I know what I saw when I flat lined. I am more of the universe/God than anything else. When I pray or meditate i go into the universe first🙏but I speak to the maker🙏.So I don't know where I actually fit in and I'm ok with that. I do find this interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Amazing! I just was wondering few minutes rather few seconds ago, while i was watching here on this page the video "the art of not forcing", if you Dr Buttar were watching the works of Dr Jordan Peterson on spiritual/religious subjects, then got back here and found the video of Dr J Peterson posted! What a telepathy!
