"My first memories from when I was deep inside: I had no language, all my earthly memories were gone," he said. "I had no body awareness at all. I was just a speck of awareness in kind of a dark, murky environment, in roots or vessels or something. And I seemed to be there for a very long time -- I would say years. I was rescued by this beautiful, spinning, white light that had a melody, an incredibly beautiful melody with it that opened up into a bright valley," he added, "an extremely verdant valley with blossoming flowers and a just incredible, rich, ultra-real world of indescribable complexity."
Wait a minute. Isn't this the description of that Robin Williams movie, "What Dreams May Come?" Or could it have been that Matt Damon flick, "Hereafter?" Or maybe some combination of the two? Alexander said there was a young woman who soared across time and space with him on a butterfly wing and gave him a message to take back from Heaven."She looked at me, and this was with no words, but the concepts came straight into mind: You are love; you are cherished; there's nothing you have to fear; there's nothing you can do wrong," he said.Wasn't that Terry Gilliam?
Maybe I should dial down all this cynicism and take heart. Perhaps there is a Heaven, and it's a lot like the movies. I just hope they let you put butter on your popcorn.
