What 3 things did you learn while you were in a near-death experience?
I nearly died twice in my life, the first time was when I crashed my car into a small tree, about a mile away from my house in Connecticut. I was on the way home from a night out in NYC. To be honest, I was quite intoxicated. My car hit the tree head on, going about 60mph around a sharp curve. I came to and noticed that my car engine was engulfed in flames. The doors of my car wouldn't open and the windows would roll down. The next thing I remember, is that I was outside of the car, screaming for help. Luckily an old couple heard the ccrash and my sibsequent screaming. I, still to this dya, cannot tell you how I escaped from my car, later to find out that my car actually blew up as a result of the fire in my engine. If I would have not crashed into that tree, I would went straight into a lake. It just so happens, that the tiny tree I crashed into wasa black walnit tree, which has the strongest bark in the world. Ill also say that, my ignorance at the time and my feeling of being invincible, could not let me understand the magnitude of this event. I felt thankful for about a week after the accident and then it slowly faded away. If I can say any 3 things I've learned from my near death experience, it would be this... 1. There is an order, a so to speak plan, as to why things unfold the way they do in this universe. I can say that maybe that tree was planted there and waiting for me my whole life. 2. I can say that "God" has many times, tried to slap me in the face with signs to let me know that I am meant to do something great in this life and to get clean and sober and respond to my true calling. For I don't need drugs or alcohol to supplement what I can have by having a higher connection to the universe. So I like to think of it as, there are no warnings, only signs... 3. Lastly, all I can say, is that our journey, in this life,but of surprises. Life is not meant for you to know what is going to happen. It is an unexpected adventure, at best....

How could we relate to the world around us without the concept of time?
I do believe that time doesn't exist. It is a most awesome thought! When I think of deja vu, for example, when you are experiencing a moment that seems to have happened before. I can only equate that to an understanding in which, either you have already had this moment before and that you are exactly where you need to be. So the fact that time doesn't exist, in my opinion, means that the past present and future are all happening at once. So therefore, when you experience deja vu, you have the sense of already living that moment because that moment has always happened. Obviously there are scientific explinations for all of what I am saying. But science I think is only now catching up to spirituality and what many have understood for years. There is most certainly an order to things, a process. So i don't want to say that because of what I'm saying, that what is going to happen in our future has already happened and there is n changing that. I'm not sure, I am confusing myself now, lol! But, to me, time is just like everything else we know, an opinion an idea, a perception and what is most certainly real, I don't even know. Because we cannot measure time, we don't know exactly when the universe was created, we can't pin point anything. So whatever present moment we may be in, is not present at all. There is just so much going on now to create the illusion that a present moment is actually happening. I dunno, this is a great topic though!

The Man who tasted shapes! Have you ever experienced synesthesias?
I am one who has this. It is amazing. I make music and this has been with me my whole life. It wasn't until I was about 16, that I was decsribing this to a classmate and she told me that what I have is synesthesia. Ever since then I have embraced it. For me its not just music, but also other sounds like peoples voices and the days of the week. With music, it works like this for me.... I don't see certain notes and tones in one specific color, every time I hear that note or tone, rather it is the whole piece of music that I see as a picture in my head. Each instrument has a shape as to what I would envision that particular sound to look like and they are layered on top of one another. It is almost like there is a train passing by in front of me and on that train there is the music that I am seeing as it builds and add more intruments to the piece. So as the music builds there are more layers right on top of it, and when there are vocals on top of it I picture the person singing it as if they are in the background and the music is in the foreground. Each piece of music has a main color(theme) and all ther instruments have their respective shapes and colors within the main color that I feel and see when I am hearing it. Also, if I am hearing someones voice singing and I don't know what that person looks like, I imagine in my mind what I think they would look like. So I can hear something and remember what it sounds like, by remembering what it looks like. Its always the same picture every time. This helps when I make music. I wish I could paint so I could express what I see because it is so hard to explain. Also with the days of the week, to me they look like the shapes of the states on a map, and each day has a distinct shape that never changes. Anyways, I really love this site and it is amazing to talk about things that we all experience and get to share about it. Hope my view of this sheds some light on to what people might experience.

Would world become better if there were no Ego??? How to overcome "ego" ???
The ego centralizes in the mind, the true essence of a person, that which we are born with, is from deep within. That being said, I believe that as we grow up we become less intune with our true essence and more connected to our ego, by our thoughts and actions. There is no way to get rid of ego, because we would not be who we are without it. There is a simple truth that if people actually do some work and try to dig deep inside themselves then they will start to get connected to their "higher self" their essence. I have done some ennegram work, which basically is a system that help you get to your core and help strip away the ego and help bring your essence to the surface. It describes us as all being born with one of the nine personality type and of course we can relate to them all, but one of them we can relate to more and that is our personality type. Ego to me is a fear based concept. If you interested take a look at the ennegram books. It really helped me in getting better in touch with myself and my core.

What are 10 things YOU know to be true?
1. There is a higher subconcious that we are all connected to. 2. Music let's me know there is something bigger than us "out there" 3. Pain is neccessary to grow 4. No one is truly happy 5. Love is the most important thing we can experience as humans 6. There are evil people/forces in this world 7. We all have complete abundance in ourselves to be great. 8. Not enough people understand they can be great. 9. Thoughts are not truths and if that is the case, then whatever we think, we really don't know 10. One day we will understand, life, the universe, the meaning of life, I think that day will come and those question will be answered when we die, by an incredible feeling that overcomes us, that will tell us that everything will be ok. But for now all we can do is keep moving forward. Life is beautiful, it is hard for me to see this everyday. When I take a step back and quiet my mind I am reminded of how blessed we are to be alive and how much of a gift it is to be awake and concsious. P.S. Everybody wants to make love!!
