Since I was a little I have had this same gut wrenching tear making feeling. I used to ask my mother when can I go home? She finally figured out I
was not asking to go to our home, but home to "heaven", for lack of better words, but to me thats where it will be. All my life I have lived with
this underlying need to go home. In my mid twenties, God stepped in to ease my mind some. Here is that experience.
After two consecutive nights of bartending and not partaking, I just wanted to get back to my dorm, leave the drunks to go there merry way and leave
me the heck alone. I drove the 40 minutes sometimes in tears, I am headed to where I live but it's not HOME. I get there, its late. I usually
headed out with the gang, but this time my heart wasn't in it, so i just headed back alone. I let myself in, and try to decompress. I end up sitting
on the floor by my bed, stinking of alcohol for which I had had none. And questioned, "Is this what's suppose to be like?" Living? My soul, to the
very depths began to cry. Had never really felt such world moving shuddering. I spoke out loud I wanna come home, please? Then I felt warm, calm,
real, LOVE overwhelm me. I quietened my sobs, and breathed slower, trying to listen to what the universe was telling me. In real words, into my
heart and mind, came this: Your soul is on it's last incarnation. It has but one lesson left. When you accomplish that life lesson, then you will
come home. Your name is written in the book of life, but not the name you carry now, but you will learn this when you come for the last time. I
could tell my soul fought coming into this incarnation kicking and screaming! Musta been hard kicking my out and getting me into this body, lol. At
this point, I experience my one and only OBE. I see myself sitting on the cool tile floor of my dorm room, then see the roof of the building, then
the city lights, then surroundings of my county then state, then that of the mid/east US, my attention changes upward, I see a spiraling of joyous
souls singing and praising as they join a collective of souls ascending. I depart the earth's realm into space and feel I was brought through a veil
only temporarily to view. I see the pedestal with the Book of Life the attendant moves from my field of vision. My guide joined me during my assent
then beyond the pedestal was a Temple with gates on all four side, clearly marked East, West, North, and South. At that point I had an overwelming
desire to get inside, I''ve gotta meet my Creator and thank Him. My guide very abruptly stopped me and said no, you cant go inside yet, not till its
time. I begged, he said I had to go back to my body, and for me to go inside my mind would not be able to handle it at this time. Which made me
consider that some time I will. And gently but abruptly am plumped back into my body on the cold floor. Dried tears on my face, I get up and take
sweet time preparing for bed. Lots of things go through my thoughts. Why me? Why was I shown this, but my souls eases a bit. I know at least to
Him I am somebody.
Is still long to go home. And at times cry to my depths because I miss it so. I have often wondered what's the lesson? Still must not have figured
that one out cause I am still here. I have though hope and love, and to me solid evidence that there is a Heaven. I just hope I am doing what it is I
am suppose to be doing. At many times I do enjoy living and having the experiences I am suppose to be having. I have had my fair share of the good
and the bad. To each it's season.
But Still: I JUST WANT TO COME HOME.
This is my story, it is what it is.
