Chapter 12: At Peace With The Afterlife
You Have Chosen to Remember: A Journey of Self-Awareness, Peace of Mind and Joy by James Blanchard Cisneros.
Most of us have already read or seen television accounts of people who said they died and went through a tunnel, and toward “the light.” The most eloquent way that I have read this light being described was in the book “A Course in Miracles.” The description is as follows:
42 Beyond the body, beyond the sun and stars, past everything you see and yet somehow familiar, is an arc of golden light that stretches as you look into a great and shining circle. And all the circle fills with light before your eyes. The edges of the circle disappear, and what is in it is no longer contained at all. The light expands and covers everything, extending to infinity, forever shining and with no break or limit anywhere. Within it, everything is joined in perfect continuity. Nor is it possible to imagine that anything could be outside, for there is nowhere that this light is not.
How does being in this light feel? It is a lot to ask someone to describe such a feeling, for no words I write could ever closely clarify this for you. This is something you need to experience to truly understand. And, my friend, you don’t need to have a near death experience to feel this light. All you need do is simply ask to experience it, and if it serves your higher purpose, it will be offered. The following is the closest I can come to offering you a physical experience that will give you a partial sensation of being in this light.
