Love is GodI was driving my van down a major street in Daytona Beach, Florida on a day in 1983. One second I was totally alert and awake and the next I was totally unconscious. It was a speed of light narcoleptic phenomena. I had felt fine that morning and there had been nothing in recent days to indicate that anything like this might happen. 

When I came to, I was sitting in my van on top of a car in the Hertz lot. There were paramedics there attending to a man that I had almost hit head on that was driving a car in the oncoming lanes. This man was seriously injured and someone told me later that he almost died. A lady in a different car in the oncoming lanes had also wrecked when I collided with the man's vehicle and he careened into her.

As soon as I became aware and got my memory back in the hospital, a feeling of immense euphoria mixed with the desire to go back to wherever I had been overwhelmed me. The best way to describe it is that it was like the love a parent has for their favorite child times one billion. And that is an insufficient description. I wanted to go back. It did not matter that I would be leaving my family, my wife and two daughters, because time became irrelevant. I knew with certainty that once I went back, it would just be the blink of an eye before they were with me wherever that place is. There is no time. It was a place of unconditional love forever. It was a feeling of love like your most intense love affair multiplied times that same billion. It was beyond what the religious think or describe heaven to be. 

 

Here is the part that the religious and many others do not like to hear. Everyone goes to the same place - Billy Graham, the Pope, Lady Di, as well as Hitler, Jeffery Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Timothy McVeigh and any other bad guy or gal you can think of. It is like our life on Earth here is "discounted," that we go through life as an experience and that whatever has happened to you on Earth was the luck of the draw and was predestined.

 

When I was in the "Wonderful Place," there were no lights or tunnels or black forms beckoning me to stay, just the undeniable, intense feelings described above along with a 100% level of certainty that I had truly experienced the afterlife.
