Experience Description

I was floating up with hand out towards this very bright light. The light was extremely bright, but I could stare and look directly at it. There was a cool breeze blowing across my face it was the most comforting feeling I had or have ever felt. I could see a great figure and was slowly floating up wards towards it, or him, and then I was back as quickly as I was taken.

The thought has been buried in my mind to contact this group, which in their mind and heart know what we have to do to try to help man to truly reach GOD because we know without any doubt there is life after death. I look forward to that time again. But at this time, my God has for me; I must find my other brothers and sisters with the same purpose and goal that GOD has burned in my soul heart, and mind. There is only one GOD and one truth and his sheep have heard and hear his voice. I know I have been chosen and what I have to do on this earth the sooner I do this the sooner I will be united with my GOD. This is for those who have always known they were special and just didn't know why. You must meet with your kind and go on with your father's business.
