Wondrous and thrilling is the NDE with its many potential revelations.as evidenced in the linked account below.
Downsides can include :
1/ Dying is disruptive. Possibly inconvenient for yourself and loved ones. Late for work etc
2/ Most people forget the revelations very quickly.(Complete waste)
3/. Most people report experiencing nothing on revival.
4/ Not widely available. Is actually quite rare.
So Lay Gnosis is virtually opposite to the above.
1/ Does not disrupt your life at all with the gentle 3 yr drip feed. Do it with loved ones.
2/ Every revelation is in normal consciousness. Physical evidence provided for assurance.
3/ People are encouraged to diary their revelations. Nothing is forgotten.
4/ Works on everybody- no exceptions. And of course, you stay alive (recommended)
