I was having a hard time in life. I had dreamed of going to Queens University in Belfast to study computer. I got a letter from them telling me that I had failed to achieve entry as I didn't meet their requirements. I was so mad at that. I ran to my room and locked myself inside, not letting my mother nor my father get in. I was crying beyond control when suddenly there was this beautiful light forming in front of me. It went from color to color, and inside this light, I could make out the shadow of a being. Suddenly, I found myself standing next to this light. I looked back and my body was lying on the bed crying still. I thought WOW! How the hell?
Suddenly, from within this being, a huge tunnel had opened up and it was beautiful beyond words. I cannot tell you what I felt. The feeling of love, and peace that I had achieved while I was passing through this was amazing! I felt myself engulfed in the passion of love that seemed to flow from every corner of this tunnel and from this being!
We reached what I can only call 'The White Room'. This room didn't seem to have any ending to it! It was filled with book after book. Big Red Books! Before us appeared a table and on the table was one of those book. The 'Person' beside of me started to speak and it was like music to my mind. The Being never once spoke using his mind, only putting his words into my head. (Cool I thought).
The thought I got was that he was going to tell me my life and what lay ahead of me. He opened the book. It was not a normal book. The thing showed me television pictures of my life, from Birth to present day. Much of which I had forgot! The being looked at me with so much love I felt like I wanted to cry.
The thought came to my mind telling me that we are all inter-connected; we are all as one, part of the one great big plan. We are all linked spiritually! WOW! I thought. Then he told me that I had to go back because there was people who needed me. He told me to wait for little Pebbels, that he had given her to me before we walked this Earth. That we were placed on this earth on the same day. He told me that she was my soul-mate and would be along soon. He also told me to wait a few day and I would receive a letter in the post from the people that had made me hurt so much.
Suddenly, I found myself back inside the tunnel. I didn't want to go, I felt so safe. There was no form of time there. Just pure love.
12 days after this experience, I got a letter from Queens telling me that they had made a mistake and that they would be privileged to have me as a Student. Then, three days into university, I meet a girl. Guess what, she told me her mother had always called her Pebbels right to this very day. She had told me her mother always said that God had given her that nickname so that the right person could ID her. WOW! I felt so lucky and blessed.

Time there is no issue, they have no such thing as time. We here on Earth do everything by time, whereas they do everything by love.
