Monte Y's Experience

Experience description:   

I was sitting in a worship service (Christian) mid week in the evening about 25 people present singing and playing guitars and a few other instruments ,in a large living room in a private house. Some of us had our eyes closed and hands raised.  I had my eyes closed and was singing. I did not have my hands raised at the time and had my head slightly bowed. It was about the 3 or 4th song.....;and I left my body completely I was immediately some where else (heaven?).   I new I had just arrived with a group of about 10 or so other people. (no tunnel)  We all seemed to have landed on our feet and were looking at a huge vista of things in front of us ,like we were looking at cosmic section of the universe.  Every thing was slightly up from us but not far away or close it was total peace ,love, exciting and calm at the same time...no fear of any kind. I felt like a kid who had just arrived at the most wonderful amusement park in the cosmos...we were not standing on ground (dirt) BUT WE WERE IN KIND OF A ROW STANDING ON SOMETHING I was on the extreme right of the others .I had on a white gown with my feet and hands expo0sed.and so did the others .I noticed they all had there jaws hanging open (shock) and I felt mine and it was open in awe also. I laughed. I thought we must all have just died at the same time on earth it seemed perfectly logical since people die every second. That didn't bother me at all in fact I was happy because I thought as imperfect as I knew I was some how I must have made heaven or bless or  whatever.

My gown seemed a little flimsy in that it didn't seem to have any weight and was thin but it was a beautiful white gold ish and covered me ok but it reminded me a little of those hospital gowns, I wouldn't want to play football in it.  To my right and slight up were some structures sort of like buildings but not really ,I knew they were strictly for beauty ,creativity ,enjoyment etc. there was no need for protection from the elements or to live in or anything like that .about that time (it wasn't like earth time) I saw three beings (angles) fly through an archway playing instruments music I never heard before, assume I didn't recognize the instruments either never saw instruments like them before. they seemed to be showing off ..ha  ha...a little because they flew in tandem and did swirls and stuff perfect precision, like an air show while playing there instruments .oh the buildings were alive. They seemed to almost be breathing. There was no entropy no decay possible the very atoms of everything was made out of love it was a substance, the structure was eternal .two more angles flew over a little closer to me (I don't remember seeing there wings ,at least not very clear communication.  It was through a kind of ESP or thought. I took a step toward them and they freaked out spinning around and squealing and rejoicing they said oh he walks like the lord did on the earth it seemed it was really a big deal if you had walked on the earth like Jesus did .they could go anywhere and so could I but they flew and I walked I could have walked up the side of the buildings if I had wanted to.

Then I noticed way up far away on my left front was a glory of light .I had telescopic vision and looked closer .it was a big throne of some kind and a few hundred were waiting in a sort of a line to see or  visit with  the person on the throne, I felt like it was the father god ..but no one told me anything. The people in line were very happy visiting each other and laughing and talking etc. they were in no hurry at all they could have waited 10000 years no time no problem.  Then I was back in my earth body just where I was before I left I knew that where I was, it was more real than my earth life.  I was gone about 20 minutes earth time and all the people that were in the meeting except for my friend Larry who was playing his guitar with his eyes closed were gone....we found out latter that everybody had gone to the pizza parlor because a van full of new kids had just arrived from no Carolina
