on the bus today an old man told me about his out of body experience. he had been 15 at the time and came to outside a car that had been hit by a drunk driver. he said he saw the tunnel but didn't know to look for the light and anyway began calling for his brothers. he told me about his seven brothers and six sisters and how his mother told him that everyone was family. he had ms and told me how he worked himself out of being scared and worried. he had a big spiritual curiosity and was devoted in his practice. he was at peace with the world and very mentally healthy, if possibly a bit lonely. he was seventy and going to buy organic broccoli for an eighty-seven year old friend. after meeting him i felt safe all day. there is relief in someone who knows what is going on.
