Who here remembers being pure soul in the place between lives? What was it like? How did you remember... going to it after a previous death? Coming out of it through birth? NDE? Other ways? I have heard it described umpteen ways. A busy way station, sort of a cosmic zero-g Grand Central, with souls going this way and that... inconceivably beautiful colours, delicious smells... a calm and serene place where you discuss with master souls what your next best choice would be... etc. My feeling is that they are all correct and any differences are accounted for by the six-blind-men-examining-an-elephant phenomenon. I had no memory of it until this past January when I didn't remember it directly, but remembered remembering it: I remembered being a very young child with my mind half there. I've also had other impressions of it. To me it is the place where no one says hello or goodbye, because everyone knows we are always there and always together. It has the most incredible feelings of safety and security, beyond anything possible in incarnate life. There's also a lightness and a kind of magic and a feeling of being exalted. I think this is because while we are pure spirit, we have no fear, since fear comes out of the drive to survive, which only comes with a body and so only happens during incarnate life. The moment in January changed my life. I truly became aware that I was not a human being having a spiritual experience, but a spiritual being having a human experience, in the words of Teilhard de Chardin. How was it for you?
