Together, we are here to create a whole new world—for ourselves, inside our hearts; for the planet and the people. But it starts with you. To create a new world you must heal your emotional wounds and past trauma, and find your purpose. You must let go of expectations before you can understand what it means to be of service to the world. Together, we will take a journey—the Inner Journey. The most valuable, beautiful, rewarding journey you could ever make to the inner peace, love, and happiness you came to experience. A way out of the traps of society and cultural filters. A way out of depression, stress or anxiety. A way to let go of the deepest-rooted fears that keep you stuck in place. In this book, Ahmed Lotfy has compiled the opinions and studies of doctors, physicists, religious and spiritual gurus, and psychologists to identify what life is truly about. Are science and religion one, or are they two different things? Does God exist, or is He an indoctrinated concept? Do we really understand religion, or is it an accumulation of cultural programming and misinterpretations? This eye-opening exploration of these topics and others such as near-death experiences and quantum physics will guide you toward experiencing your consciousness in the best way you know how. What is the purpose of existence? Are we free spiritual beings? What is the essence of the soul? Is there more to the universe than the eyes can see? Where is God? What does Near Death Experiences and quantum physics teach us? Is letting go of fears the answer to our spiritual healing and gateway to our inner journey of conscious awakening and enlightenment? All these questions are overwhelmingly complex to answer; they are mysterious enigmas that have long baffled the human mind and made each one of us question reality at a particular stage of our lives. Arguably, every person has had at least one of these paradoxes occupy a notable amount of their time and often decided to either ratify or refute their validity. If you're eager to piece together the most mystifying puzzle of all time and bring to light the leading dispute of most human quarrels, disagreements, divisions, hatred, and wars since the beginning of time, then you are already on the right path. This book is not designated for science or religion solely but the overlap between them. I have done my best to neutralize my past viewpoints, present notions, and future outlooks so I can build a foundation on a clean-slated knowledge base of findings, introspections, and truth-seeking. I invite you to do the same. I am not alleging that I have the answer; I propose a starting point in the hope that it leads to a common ground of understanding. Beyond the Prison of Beliefs discusses numerous topics including but not limited to Near Death Experiences (NDE) and its connection to quantum physics, consciousness, the ego-self, the afterlife, the universe, religion, and God. The Inner Journey is explored through spiritual healing techniques and modalities from all over the world encompassing meditation, praying, yoga and herbal medicines that facilitate awareness and enlightenment. Your spiritual healing will undoubtedly be a meaningful one after having a holistic understanding of near-death experiences. The ultimate objective here is to consolidate science with religion and spirituality and to bridge the gap of understanding between believers and non-believers. This book targets both worlds, but specifically, those who believe more in science, and think it's separate from God, or that spiritual healing is considered pseudoscience/a placebo effect. A lot of controversial views and studies will shed light on different theories explaining life and how it sprouted to create the universe, not the other way around.
