as a big light shining on things making shadows and so forth. This

light was really the absence of darkness. We're not used to that concept

because we always get a shadow from the light unless the light

is all around us. But this light was so total and complete that you

didn't look at the light, you were in the light 8

One person told Kenneth Ring, "It was not bright. It was

like a shaded lamp or something. But it wasn't that kind of

light that you get from a lamp. You know what it was? Like

someone had put a shade over the sun. It made me feel very,

The following series of events appear to happen simultaneously,

but in describing them I will have to take them one at a time. The

sensation is of a being of some kind, more a kind of energy, not a

character in the sense of another person, but an intelligence with

whom it is possible to communicate. Also, in size it just covers the

entire vista before you. It totally engulfs everything, you feel

enveloped.

The light immediately communicates to you, in an instant

telekinesis your thought waves are read, regardless of language. A

doubtful statement would be impossible to receive. The first message

I received was "Relax, everything is beautiful, everything is

okay, you have nothing to fear." I was immediately put at absolute

ease. In the past if someone like a doctor had said "Its okay, you
