New Robert Redford Movie, The Discovery, Addresses Suicide And The Afterlife - Author and NDE Expert Brian McLaughlin Offers Insight Into The Issue Of Life After Death

McLaughlin's book about his NDE details his totally unique near death experience. It is raw and it's real. There is no embellishment, no preaching and no hidden agenda

For some people the pain of living is greater than the benefits derived from living. For some in that group, the idea of life after death provides some hope. And for others in such dire straits, suicide seems like a viable alternative. Why continue to suffer? Everybody dies at some point in time, so why not now? If one's faith in life after death is strong enough, and the suffering while living in the world is intolerable, suicide can appear to be an alternative.

That broad concept is a focal point in 'The Discovery' a new film starring Robert Redford. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2017, and will be released by Netflix in March. In the film, the existence of the afterlife is proven scientifically, which leads to mass suicides. NDE expert Brian McLaughlin, author of 'A Flight Without Wings', offers some valuable insight in regard to the question of suicide.

McLaughlin recently shared:“I have, in the past, had the opportunity to share some comfort to those concerned about an afterlife.  The experience for me was peaceful and filled with pure love from many sources.

"I recently co-hosted an internet TV Show, dealing with suicide among other mental challenges. I felt a responsibility to those struggling with the thoughts of suicide, not to portray an attractive alternative to living.”

He went on to say:  “I am keenly aware of these feelings, as I was facing some life threatening surgery (aortic aneurism), and was considering not having any intervention. It seemed like a viable choice for me, no fear of death and.... a sudden and fast ending.  I took the time to speak to family members, and my mother suggested that this resolution, although all mine, had serious consequences for those people who cared about me and would be left behind.  I hadn’t looked at the decision from that perspective before. My choice to have this aneurism repaired became one of love and consideration for my family.  Just coming to that conclusion made me feel better”

Brian's book about his near death experience, 'A Flight Without Wings' offers readers a look at the near death experience from an unbiased point of view. It is the presentation of the material that sets this book apart from the other books about the near death experience. It is raw and it's real. There is no embellishment and no hidden agenda. While his book has a spiritual flavor certainly, there is no preaching and no religious messages. It is his near-death experience, just as it happened.

McLaughlin's experience changed the course of his life forever.  It instilled in him what we all seek - certainty about life after death. And with that a peace of  mind that can never be shaken, nor can it be doubted. His near death experience brought a sense of clarity. It brought a sense of real, lasting peace. He now knows with certainty that we exist forever. It is that simple message he brings to his audience, both through his book and at his speaking engagements and in his media appearances.

Brian has won numerous awards. He was chosen as one of '50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading' in both the 2015 and 2016 Book Awards.

Reviews of 'A Flight Without Wings' have been overwhelmingly positive. Dr. Penny Sartori, author of 'The Wisdom of Near-Death Experiences', said "This book will help others who have had an NDE to make sense of their experience and will also help those close to someone who has had an NDE because NDEs affect close family members and friends too."

Jack Magnus, a reviewer with Readers Favorite, called the book a "well written and moving memoir that neither delves into the fanciful or dogmatic,...”  "…Well worth reading, and is highly recommended." Another stated, "Being a mother who lost her only child I found it to be a great comfort to me." Another said, "I have read many accounts such as these, but this beautifully written account simply touched my heart in ways that previous ones have not."

Mark Feuerstein, Actor (Royal Pains, USA Network) wrote: “I have read it and I think it’s an inspiring tale of deep insight and so personal and yet so universal . . . such profound perspective.”
