Wonderment and the Realization That I Was Part of the Universe

Mystical Experiencer:  Male in late eighties
Submission date:  February 18, 2022
Current location:  U.S.A.
Age at time of experience:  59

Lasted about 20 minutes with detail rapidly diminishing from great to very little over the period.  Started with my amazement and desire not to miss a thing then realized it was fading and became confused.

The room was solid bright light and my eyesight was faultless, yet I remember little except a feeling of wonderment and the realization that I was part of the universe and being alive was great!

It was very spiritual in that things did not matter but the realization that I was forgetting as fast as I was trying to remember panicked me.

Immediately after I tried to write what I felt/thought but any notes are long gone.

Afterward I was moved to visit my son in an army facility in Arizona on my way home (NJ) so I flew down to see him.  He was in deep depression and after I left he called his mom and told her I saved his life.

Apparently I was able to counsel him in a way that I didn’t know I was capable of.

The incident changed my life very much–I became a better person generally.  I began writing and was more concerned with others.  I can’t describe it… It was the best thing ever happened to me.  I feel blessed yet am not a particularly religious person.  I have begun to be a philosopher of sorts…

I am alive today because of that incident…
