Jerry L's Experience

Experience description:   

After reading the book "Three Magic Words" by U.S. Anderson, I did as the book suggested and meditated on a daily basis following the guided meditations in the book. After about a month of meditating, one morning as I was laying in bed about to get up I was suddenly found myself in a soft light. I felt that I was in the light, that the light was pure love. The feeling of total love is impossible to explain, it was as though the light was God, and that I was as one with the light. I remember being told something very profound yet very simple. Like that was the answer to everything. It was not told to me by a voice, rather by telepathy. However after leaving the light and returning to my body I could not remember what I was told.
