    Like Death

    This was years ago. It was the middle of the night. The drug slowly crept through my head. I felt tired so I drifted to sleep. I awoke in what seems like minutes or hours later and started using my laptop on my bed. It was still night. Slowly, my consciousness started to fall...

    I Hear Something You Can't Hear

    I recently had a strange experience. Now, mind you, strange experiences are nothing short of mundane to me, but this was...different. Profoundly so. I feel shaken. In fact, the entire world seems unstable. Unsure. Veiled from something greater than the breadth of our...

    Flick Off, Street Light

    Whenever I'm driving at the dead of night or the early morning before daybreak, at least one street light would turn off (or sometimes on) when I drive by within 15 feet of its presence. Literally, it happens on a regular basis whether in remote or urban areas. On the streets...

    Pre-universal Existance

    One of my memories was absolutely beautiful. It was before the creation of the physical universe, the precursor to the "big bang." Angels existed, but nothing of physical matter did. I believe that we were all in God. God was everything before the universe, space, and time. The...

    Sleeping, Floating And Falling Real Hard

    I was about ten years old. I went to bed and began to fall asleep for 15 minutes or so. Somehow while in sleep, I get the sense that I am floating. My body was still in contact with my bed. I could feel the mattress, but I have the sense of floating. Suddenly, I get a rushed...
