Don C's Experience

Experience description:   

I had just finished surfing and I was traveling down Seal Beach Blvd and I saw a golden orb in the sky maybe a fourth the size of our moon. I pulled my car over to the side of the road. the orb was traveling towards me and eventually took on the appearance of a golden city which filled the sky. I was transported into a great hall of much beauty and peace.  No life was present. the hall had many doorways to other rooms and I was drawn to one. upon entering the room I felt for the 1st and only time in my life a feeling of profound peace and LOVE.  the walls were of gossamer/fine gold and seemed to emanate the feelings of peace, safety and love.  it was truly paradise. I knew than that this was going to be my eventual home.
