It has been many years. When I died in the tank with the corrosive chemicals I fell over a pipe (IMPORTANT). Immediately I was gone from my body but I had a body. The first thing I can remember is the feeling. I could feel other beings' feelings of (let me search for words that will not be good enough) Happiness, Contentment, Knowledge, Overpowering wellbeing, no problems! I could feel their Happiness going ALL through my being!The next thing was that it was different from daylight or dark, another color that I cannot describe. Later I remembered GOD created day and night.People that I knew I was coming. They were there waiting to greet and comfort me. I started asking questions like a Child. I asked two questions when I and Everyone else Knew to be quiet and we All did!Someone that I could not see spoke one sentence, one sentence that answered every question that I had ever asked and every question that I would ever ask forever!!! I guess the best way for me to describe it would be to say that I was immediately Enlightened!!!!!! All of a sudden, I felt the same happiness as everyone else. I was now part of it!!!!!I was enjoying it when one of the Ones that had come to greet me told me it was time to go back and reached for my right arm and I popped back into my earth body as they were lifting me out of the tank.I was not able to communicate very well with people because of the chemical effect but I held on to that sentence with every fiber of my being and repeated it over and over again and again to myself and I understood everything, everything!!! (Unfortunately, when I returned to my body, I wasn't allowed to remember it.)I knew that if I could communicate that sentence to one live human it would take over their life too and they would turn and tell another and it would spread all over this world. I had the ability to fix this world.
