Woke up 7.30 today, totally rested after 11 hours of deep sleep. (Okay, I was awake 0130-0330, coz I went to bed so early, 8.30 pm. So it´s 9 hours of sleep really).
But yeah. I love to wake up and feel finished with resting.
Went downstairs with my 5-yearold, made us tea, and he wanted as always to watch kids´tv, so. Then I enjoyed two cups of coffee and a roam around Facebook and Youtube. Sweet passtime activity.
And then I discovered Ben Breedlove. Never heard of him before, this Texas teen. He´s moved me to the core and I´ve shared his story on my Facebook wall today.
Do you know of him? 12 million people have watched his youtube videos, that he made a few days before he died. (He already had a youtube tv channel apparently, and a good following. But it went viral only after he died, as I read it).
Don´t worry about watching these, they are very uplifting. Moving. And joyful, is a word I will choose. Hear him (or watch his smiling face as he holds up written sentences), tell us about his near death experiences….
He was born with a heart disease. And cheated death age 4 and age 17…? I think it must be….
Here is a news story about the phenomenon of young Breedlove.
They say in the end that after this farewell video, a whole wave of youtube videos were made, same style as his final one there, with text cards…
Here you are:
I have, since my own teens, read a lot about near death experiences, research made by pioneer Elizabeth Kübler-Ross and Raymond Moody, especially. And lots of books about reincarnation, people remembering events and places from previous lifetimes, and this shows agin and again to be provable…
This story is just one of many, many similar ones. But it is recent, and video is a unique, great communication tool, for giving insight and instant emotional understanding.
Watched 12 million times. Reported in 2013. Is like. Wow ? For the lack of more articulate expression…!
Right. Just watched now his sister Ally´s speech at his funeral. It is one of the best funeral speeches I have heard. Positive. In the middle of her grieving.
She´s also written a book about her brother, after he died.
Their family is obviously of Christian faith. I love the words of Jesus and what he stood for. Equality, peace and love. I´m not a christian. Or maybe I am. As well as a taoist and a zen buddhist. But it doesn´t matter to me, what language we use. Love is Love. All is One, Love. To me.
I end this with a video from his advice channel… so cute… !! And funny…
I will definately check out more from mr. Ben Breedlove. Wise for his age, his thinking of high ethical standard. I even want his haircut now!
Hahaha…. Why not. I´m considering cutting it short anyways. His haircut is ace.
Probably it´s even better these days, on the other side, grooving in a suit with his favourite rap star Kid Cudi….
I salute you, Ben. Your gift to the world is truely wonderful. Giving a lot of peace and hope for all of us, who without exeption will follow, when our time comes.
