I originally hear of Ben Abba though media interviews and finding his unique book about immortality. The subject is so thought-provoking that I contacted him about an interview here and another on my Blog talk radio show November 22.
The subject matter invites everyone to review the basis of conditioned beliefs and re-evaluate the nature of their own self-disclosure. Thanks for consenting to this interview and being willing to expand on your insight on the radio.
What is your view about physical immortality? Why focus on this subject?
Its possible. I believe ~25 "immortals", living among us today, already achieve it.
I focus on this to learn how to extend my own life, the quality of my own life, and to share what I have learn to others who desire to learn the same.
How does learning about this give a person a different awareness of reality?
Fear of death gives others control over us. Without fear of death, we become free to live our lives to their fullest.
Share any example(s) of your own personal verification of immortality.
A very small sample: walking barefoot on hot cools, surviving a car crash, remote viewing, Li Ching Yuen, locating and making contact with real "immortals", and observing many other death-defying miracles throughout my life.
How does an evolving perspective on physical existence accelerate your personal development?
Quite a bit. I now "know" and not just "believe" that we have free will and not just living a pre-determined life.
Consider the law of attraction. What sorts of individuals do you invite into your life based on your interest and research into immortality?
More enlightened beings or those who choose to evolve and grow in their lives.
What is your understanding of the human potential for spontaneous healing?
I am beginning to know that it is not only possible, but it is happening, in many different ways, all around us. What brings you to such conclusions? Personal observations and research into such done by others interests me.
How do you sense spirituality shifting inside you and others in light of what you perceive and learn of immortality?
My beliefs, my lifestyle has considerably changed already due to my research into physical immortality. Also, immortality is one of many forms of "infinite abundances". When I applied what I have learned in my research of "immortals" to other areas of my life (financial, business, relationships, etc.) i have noticed similar changes in my own life.
What is your insight into past lives? How does this relate to your insight into immortality and longevity?
I am well aware of the scientific evidence proving the belief of reincarnation and I have researched my own previous lives, with enough evidence to "know" I personally have reincarnated. Good question. I believe it helped me accept the findings of my research into immortals, immortality, and longevity.
Why do human beings resist changing views on immortality?
Fear seems to be the answer. Fear that their current beliefs may not be correct. Fear that others could have what they may not have. Fear that they are not "worthy" enough to receive what they truly desire in their own lives.
Do you sense a connection between increased self-respect, self-responsibility and longevity?
Definitely! (I can build on this later.)
Are you aware of National Geo studies on centenarians? A recent one was published in 2005.
YES! I have had a copy of the January 1973 of NG for years!
We are grateful you share perspectives on this wondrous subject. This is part I of the interview. A second part will be published as a separate entry.
I invite you to listen to my archived radio show where we expand on this subject and Ben's writing. Check out Ben's blog for further information on his work: http://benabba.blogspot.com/
