Mario's Experience

Experience description:   

IN REALITY, I DIDN'T HAVE A NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE, BUT AN ENCOUNTER WITH A BEING OF LIGHT, AS REPORTED IN SEVERAL Nodes.
I WAS A 11 YEAR OLD CHILD. IT WAS MORNING AND I DECIDED TO GO TO A NEARBY CLUB TO SWIM, BECAUSE THE TEMPERATURE WAS AROUND 100 DEGREES. MY PATERNAL GRANDMOTHER, WHO USED TO LIVE WITH US AT THAT TIME, TOOK ME THERE. SHE DIDN'T WANT TO SWIM AND SAT DOWN ON A BENCH TO WATCH ME.

I WAS ALONE IN THE SWIMMING POOL, THERE WERE NO OTHER KIDS AROUND. I DECIDED TO ENJOY THE PLEASURE OF SWIMMING, BUT DIDN'T WANT TO GO TO THE DEEP END OF THE POOL, SO I STAYED IN A SPOT WHERE THE WATER WAS UP TO MY WAIST.

WHEN I EMERGED, I SAW THE MOST BEAUTIFUL AND BLUE SKY I HAVE EVER SEEN AND ALSO OUR LOCAL PARISH CHURCH NEARBY.
I STARTED IMAGINING WHAT WAS BEHIND THAT BLUE SKY: STARS, PLANETS, COMETS, GALAXIES, AND EVERYTHING ELSE.  I THOUGHT HOW GREAT CREATION WAS AND HOW WONDERFUL WAS THE BEING THAT CREATED ALL THOSE THINGS, SPECIALLY THAT BLUE SKY. IN THE NEXT MOMENT, IT WAS LIKE THE DOORS TO HEAVEN OPENED UP AND I SAW A YELLOW SPHERE GRAVITATING RIGHT ABOVE ME. IT LOOKED LIKE A MINIATURE SUN FLUTING ABOUT 3-4 METERS ABOVE . IT WAS WONDERFUL! IT WAS WARM AND IRRADIATED LOVE, A LOVE SO SUBLIME, SO STRONG THAT ALL MY CELLS SEEMED TO BE SINGING BEFORE THAT PRESENCE.

IT WAS SUCH A STRONG, AND GRAND LOVE THAT IT SEEMED TO BE FILLING ME UP. I FELT I LOVED IT BACK, BUT IN A HUMAN WAY, WITH A LOVE THAT WAS SMALLER, HOWEVER I FELT THAT I HAD NEVER LOVED ANYONE WITH SUCH INTENSITY. AT THE SAME TIME I FELT SUCH  JOY THAT I STARTED JUMPING UP AND DOWN IN THE POOL, SPLASHING WATER WITH MY HANDS , IT WAS A BLISS! I FELT LIKE KNEELING ON THE FLOOR IN REVERENCE TO THE BEING, BUT I WOULD HAVE TO SUBMERGE TO DO THIS AND I DIDN'T WANT TO MISS THE SPHERE. I WANTED TO STAY THERE FOR ETERNITY, LOVING THAT BEING AND BEING LOVED BACK BY IT. ALL CHANNELS WERE OPENED. THE BEING HAD FULL KNOWLEDGE OF WHO I WAS, WHAT I THOUGHT AND FELT AND I COULD FEEL IT'S IMMENSE LOVE.

I THEN HAD A VISION I WOULD VANISH INSIDE THE SPHERE, INTO THAT BEING, AND THIS WAS NOT CONSISTENT WITH MY BELIEFS, BUT THE SENSATION WAS SO WONDERFUL I DIDN'T QUESTION MYSELF ABOUT IT.

I THOUGHT ABOUT MY MOTHER, MY STEPFATHER AND MY GRANDMOTHER. I REALIZED THAT I COULDN'T VANISH IN THE SPHERE YET, BECAUSE THEY NEEDED ME. I ASKED TO BE EXCUSED AND TO RETURN. THE BEING OF LIGHT GOT CLOSER TO ME , MOVING FROM MY LEFT TO THE RIGHT AND SAID; "I WILL ALWAYS BE WITH YOU !" HE DISAPPEARED, ALL THE SENSATIONS STARTED FADING AWAY AND I FELT I WAS RETURNING TO MY ORDINARY REALITY. I LOOKED AT MY GRANDMOTHER AND SHE WAS SEATED ON THE SAME PLACE, AS IF NOTHING HAD HAPPENED. I THINK I WAS THE ONLY ONE THAT SAW THAT WONDERFUL BEING. THE TIME I SPENT WITH HIM SEEMED NON EXISTENT,  AS IF IT HAD LASTED FOREVER, BUT IN OUR REALITY IT LASTED NO MORE THAN A FEW MINUTES.

I WENT BACK HOME WITH THIS MEMORY THAT I WILL NEVER FORGET.
