I was traveling towards an almost globe of light (a bubble) that I knew contained all that was known. It was very intense and attractive, there is nothing more powerful in needing to return to this, in what I have come to believe is our, before and after life's home - a dimension of energy of all that is, and all that is in are universe. We are all as one, yet as singular as we are in this physical journey, though without the knowledge of everything and the ability of all conceivable and unconceivable conceptual knowledge. In other words, man in all of our knowledge we are not even yet infants in what I sensed from seeing into this light. As I was traveling through this very dark void, I became aware of three other entities. The closest one was traveling beside me, though his being (upper self) was half way up to my waist and his lower extremities were below my legs. The second entity was just below this one closest to me and further out; the third entity was at least two to three body lengths further below the second entity. In my mind, I was communicated to by the first closest entity, who spoke to me (telepathy) that it was not my time and that I had a very long life to live. The way this first entity communicated with me so unbelievably loved, that the expression of his face that I cannot remember anymore was so kind and sincere that even though I wanted to continue towards this globe of light, the understanding of complete compassion of what I felt from this person overtook my urgency to travel any further. I will always remember this signature feeling of love when I meet him again, where time does not count.
Anyways I lived my life kind of reckless, not suicidal (I believe we are here for a purpose) what you expect if you're told you would have a long life, and boy have I taken those words apart and played with them many times over the years. But when I had an accident in the early 1990's, as I had many, that when this unbelievable accident was occurring (though I am not at all afraid of death) I called out loud, 'God don't let me die!' three times, and I didn't. I learned from this last major accident (what happened, the odds of what I was destroying in this last accident could never be duplicated) that I was not being very smart, in that I was told I had a long life but what does that really mean, being a paraplegic, or without limbs. I guess it took a long time to get smart.
