WW's Experience

Experience description:   

I had a dream. In the dream I was so fed up with my school, my surroundings and the world in general so I decided to commit suicide. I jumped from the 4th story of the school building. Before I jumped and the first few seconds of my jump, I was worried, scared and was unsure of my action.

Then I saw my body on the ground, blooding running out of my head. People were gathering around me and screaming. I watched all this, detached, unworried and light-hearted. I was thinking that people were so wrong - I was not dead and actually, I was very well.

Then I started to fly upwards. I was carried by an immense and indescribable happiness, contentment and satisfaction. Even till today I have never been so happy in my life. I reached a lake floating in the sky and I started to penetrate the lake from its bottom. I saw wonderful fish swimming around me. The lake seems to be blue and transparent and I felt no water but I knew that I was in a lake like a fish. There were white, swan like birds flying in the lake but I was not surprised. They were so beautiful. After emerging from the lake, I entered a bright, warm, powerful and white light. I remember that I was so pleasantly shocked by this light! The only thing I felt was happiness, safety and absolutely worry-free.

I woke up and wrote it in my diary. I will never forget this wonderful experience.
