A ferry boat was at the wharf to be painted. As a wharf worker, I helped remove the old paint, working at the top of the wharf. At a height of thirty meters, I lost my grip. I felt as if I was pushed, but I saw no one. I can't describe my fright or my impression of this strange incident. Strange also, is the fact that this occurrence didn't dawn on me until afterwards. Two years later, I went to the hospital with paralysis symptoms in my back. It appeared to have been crushed and it was doubtful that I would ever be normal again. However, after three weeks I was able to walk again. Only the scar of the exploratory surgery remained. This served as a testimony to my story.I've also felt the experience of having judged a thousand people and felt the emotions of these victims. However, when I finally looked upon those I had judged, I was so terribly ashamed of myself; I did not wish to exist any longer. Especially after a beautiful and radiant being saw and touched me, and I saw at once how I had been wrong and why.Thereafter, other beings asked what I wanted, as if I had yet to be born and that the choices in that life had to be made now. Questions like, do you want to meet your future wife; do you want children; how long would you like to live, etc. Even now, I'm still putting together the particulars of this incident at a time of serious uncertainty. I remind myself of this and then the solution to this experience becomes clearer.
