Kim L's Experience
Try to understand I found myself on a hill and I still do not know how I got there to this day or even why. It was full of life-size statues of the walk of Christ this is not the strange part, since I've since learned they really do exist. I am not a religious person but not person nor is there any background in my family. I looked at these statues I was really tired and emotional at the time and I had not slept in awhile but I cried and cried when I seen what they had done to this man...then I was in or was it around, or was it around me this is the weird does! Know it part, it was dark or really just the absence of light but there was presence and more than one and what peace wow real peace like I never felt and Love that I cannot put into words they just could never capture the truth. We all talked but not with words or hearing with our ears.
It sounds so ridiculous
when I am sharing it with you but it is the truth it was like we were all one we
felt heard and seen at the same time: I know it changed my life forever, when I
came to which is the wrong word to use because I was not out I was walking away
from the statues and the sun was brilliant the sky was blue and I felt Love for
the first time in my life really!! I looked on the ground and there was a bright
light ..it was a key a brand new skeleton key, do not know what it signifies!
just know it does!! Then my friends are there in a car, well they were not
really friends but anyway, I knew then it was time to go home and the person who
picked me up looked at me right in the eyes and said "you have to go home I will
find you a ride back to the Soo" I went home changed my whole life after
that...everything changed and I truly loved others wanted to help others and
just be a good person. The way I felt after this experience was what really
strikes me, an immense compassion for others no thought for myself at all and if
you knew how self-centered I was naturally you'd know how amazing this is, it
was about 18 months later before I started to go back to my old self I was 13
and no one wanted to be around me I was too happy too nice and too kind the kids
I knew did not like it my family thought I was weird, really my family hardly
even hugged each other and when I tried to tell them I was happy they just
thought I was weird.
