driving home from work, alone in my car. I had come to a place near the
water that I love. I remember thinking that it was a beautiful place to be. I
was then in outer space and could 'see' (not with my eyes but with another
sense) the stars and all the heavenly bodies forming and stretching across the
sky from the beginning of time to eternity very quickly. At the same time, I was
aware of all things from the smallest organism to the biggest happenings of
outer space. I had a "knowing" of everything and anything. Above my head and to
my right a bright light (not blinding but brighter than any light I have known)
flowed quickly towards and over me engulfing me and all the other souls in the
universe and down on earth (which I was fully aware of entirely).
Simultaneously, the light was also this complete LOVE. It was a type of love
that cannot be described as it is not like anything I have ever known. The love
came with the light. It was received and given at the same time. It spread from
what I instantly knew was God to encompass everything in the universe and
beyond. The love was like bliss and so complete that there was no room for
anything else. (No room for evil). I had a strong message (no words were spoken)
that what I was doing was the right thing to do, and that I didn't need to do
anything other than what I did. During the experience I had no sensation of a
body at all. I felt one with the universe. Next I was back in my body and still
driving my car at the very same spot that I had been before the experience
began. The experience seemed like it could have lasted about 10 minutes, but
there was no sense of time really. I have felt that I was 'shown' more than I
can remember. Also, I feel that where I was , was home and that I am only
visiting earth for a purpose. I feel that I know the purpose but that I just
cannot remember it.
experience, I have no interest in earthly possessions, I am not afraid to die, I
love everyone and do not know how to hate. Forgiveness is easy and right-ness is
a must. Peace in the world is possible if only everyone could have a similar
experience to see this kind of love. No words can describe it. I find I cannot
explain it to my friends and family. Each person must have the experience
kind of experience difficult to express in words?
Yes No words can fully describe it. Nothing was seen or heard or felt. It was
time of this experience, was there an associated life threatening event?
No Never, in fact I felt like I was being 'told' that all I was doing was
the right thing to do.
time during the experience were you at your highest level of consciousness and
I cannot answer this question because I felt conscious the whole time. I was
either conscious of being in the car or conscious of being in space, or in the
light or in the love or back in the car and on earth again.
