I had to come back over here and ask, did you believe in a "God" or "Jesus" prior to what you experienced? When you was at clinical death of course...Upon hearing the point about the darkness would venture to say that I was in a form of purgatory, or the preliminary stages of hell. They may be right. The only thing that I would counter with would be the sensation I was having. I can liken it to getting a paycheck with overtime, and no bills to pay or holidays coming up. I did not fear at all, even though this runs counter to the thought of being emerged in total darkness. It was the only time in my life, or the end of it rather that I was completely present in this moment. I say that because I toil through my everyday life doing whatever occupies me, while simultaneously thinking about some far off goal, or whats for dinner, so to experience this was humbling. The minute in which I was dead was the longest minute ever, because I had no concept of time, nor did I care to ponder it. My experience with death ends here. I was revived, and told of the elapsed time. I was tired when i woke, as if I had journeyed for miles and miles. Knowing that I hadn't moved an inch. I slept for some time but did not forget any detail of what had happened. I know that i was not scared at all and am almost certain that when I go it will be when I am supposed to. I may even welcome the fog. For lack of better words I believe that we just pass to another realm, where knowledge, love and compassion donnot elude us as they do in this life. While here, i think our purpose is to love each other, and impact the lives of our brothers in the most positive ways that we can. That being said I'm not even sure that people even go to hell. I am at the beginning of my understanding of such things. I don't claim to have any answers, only personal thoughts and experiences, but i think that when we die and stand before the might of our creator, we will be so ashamed of our negative trangressions that we will punish our selves for a time, enough to where God's intervention may not even be necessary. Then we will exist in him and with him. In my mind he is the perfect union of Love and Energy. Thanks for reading.
I'm sorry for just laughing at you, but I should have asked that beforehand.
