I was on my way home from school. I was wondering why I shouldn't walk between parked cars, but I did anyway, to cross the street. The next thing I remember is that I am above my body watching my mother crying, that I am dead. I was laughing at her as I was above her watching.
I felt the presence of another person next to me. I was not disturbed by this, as I felt familiar with him. I guess that it was a him; this was not expressed either way. I remember turning to this person and trying to look into his eyes. I couldn't really focus on his face, and it was almost painful to look. I turned back to the events that were happening. I was watching them load me into the ambulance. I was having a conversation and laughing with this person. I looked again at him and I knew that I knew him really well. I recognized that I knew him before I came in here, into this body. I felt really happy being with him. The more that I looked at him, the more that I saw how long I knew him. I actually remembered knowing him even before this universe was created. I could actually see this. I looked and looked and I couldn't see any time that I didn't know him. I could see long before any of this stuff came into creation.
He called me by a different name that I recognized. It wasn't like a sound but rather a feeling that I recognized as me. I felt as though he was my oldest friend. The communication was in whole concepts. When I reflect back I can see what he said as though it was in a three hundred and sixty degree viewpoint, nothing was missing.
He told me to follow him, and I did. The next thing I remember was that I was standing in front of this large red book. He told me to look and I did. At first, I couldn't recognize anything. It was blurry like when I looked into his face. Then things started to clear up. Whatever I was looking at was like a moving picture. I remember that I was at first surprised that it was in color. I guess that it reminded me of television. Back in 1955, if you did have a TV, it was black and white. Anyway the more that I looked, the faster that the scenes moved. After a bit the scenes stopped. We then talked a bit, about what I'm not sure, but I had the feeling that I would remember.
Then he wanted me to go with him again. This time we went through a series of spirals of different colors. When we stopped, I felt as though we really didn't move anywhere but rather these spirals moved through us. I then began to be aware of other beings; Lots of beings. More than I could count. I could see all around, front, back sideways. Wherever I placed my attention is where I saw. Whomever I saw, I felt as though I was in love with that being. There was no distinction as to gender, only a being. I knew that I was home. It all felt so natural.
Then I knew that it was time to go. Almost instantly, I was at the hospital. I was watching the doctors put me in a crib like bed. I remember not liking it at all. Then I saw a girl I knew from the neighborhood. Now I was embarrassed that she could see me in a crib. The next thing that I knew I was awake in my body with so much pain. I remember seeing my mother then I passed out again into darkness.
