Nadir S's Experience

Experience description:   

I was trying to sleep and praying to God with devotion, with a great feeling of gratitude.  At the same time, I was in pain because of a cruel and violent child’s death. 

Then something happened and I was transported to infinity, I didn’t have a body or even a soul. I was a thought, I was weightless and small, a golden light surrounded everything around me to infinity. I saw the earth and saw that our planet and all that existed in it was originated from the light which was alive, warm, soft, enveloping and penetrating all my core, trespassing my being. For an instant the light surrounded completely my being, and happy I wanted to join it, to merge in its warmth. I looked at earth and realize that I didn’t want anything that was on earth, no money, wealth, fame, travel, goods, even my own children!... absolutely nothing made sense to me, the light was enough! It was everything and gently the light showed me that without it nothing existed and I was loved.

Then abruptly I was sent back to my body. In the darkness of my room I felt all world’s weight, that seemed to me hard, cold, scary, I cried a lot but remembering my little son I hugged him and thought in my little daughter and the world seemed a better place, and I had the courage to continue. On the following day, I remembered everything and the world seemed unreal, weird, but soon I returned to normal, but what always accompanied me was the question: Why?

Why? If all that has not changed what I am? Not even my life, or anything…
