Yes - that sounds about right. I was 5 in 1951. I had OBEs most nights and went there. I was so young - the man told me I was too young to
understand living in two worlds. My childhood was difficult because I had no one to communicate with. But as you said. I had no fear of death - -
and knew this other dimension existed.
Guess I need to follow this thread and learn about the grey room.
When I left that place (the river), it was like a part of me died, although that isn't quite right. I felt a tremendous loss. It was difficult for
me because I had no one except my friend to communicate with. Those were prime dating years. I was in a serious relationship and broke it off. I
could not be in a serious relationship with one person when I loved ALL.
It was a very lonely time for me. You MUST have been very lonely, too. I was 20 and yet it was still hard to live in two worlds. You expressed that
When I finally realized I wasn't going back to the "river", I made a conscious choice to continue my life as it was before I'd been exposed to
that place. I became less perfect (more human). I began to date again, have dreams/aspirations. I began to think about the future again.
I know you know exactly what I am talking about.
It is hard to come up with vocabulary to describe that place. I don't think our language has the correct words for it. Because we all use different
phrases/words for the same experience, it is hard to find others.
That place was Truth. Love. Knowledge. All yet Separate. Separate yet One. Belonging. Home.
I miss it. And yet, I am grateful for the life and family I have now. I would not have had either if I had stayed there.
You said the man said you were too young to understand living in two worlds. My friend called it the River of Power. I saw it more as the River of
Time or of Knoweldge. (I'm not into "power.")
Annee, do you think it really is another world?
I definitely knew it as a place. My theory is that we are all a part of it, but we cannot stay in it too long because then we do not become attached
to people here. It was almost addicting. Attachment was not important there because we were all connected and already attached. For some reason,
attachments are important here.
Annee, why do you think you were shown it/allowed to go there?
I'm not sure, but I think I was shown it as a gift. It made me aware of possibilities. I learned that I am a part of everyone, just as everyone is
a part of me. It has helped me become more compassionate.
