Skydiving is pretty safe though -if you know what you are doing- though I'd be the biggest chicken. Could never do it. Love a monster Roller coaster though, the bigger the better.








Any "out of Body" experiences with these ??

Years ago, I read a few books written by those who claimed they died & came back..... they all had these similar stories, I am such a pathetic skeptic though... I just don't know what to believe.

I remember watching Flatliners: Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts about these young Doctors pushing their fate on the operating table at night - to experience dying & being brought back.

Interesting movie, I have to wonder if real death will play something like that .
I did have an out of body experience. It was really weird and hard to explain. I now believe the spiritual and physical worlds closely coexist--it's just that they are on different planes or frequencies. I remember how strange it felt to move from one to the other.

Re: *Death*

I love it when some chain smoker, alchoholic, drug abuser, or maybe just a daredevil says "hey you gotta die of something"; and I always respond with "yeah but how about simply dying from..........old age".

Same here. I do not fear death. What I fear is the suffering. Not the suffering I might endure before death but what my family might have to go through as I am going through the process if I end up with a terminal illness.

After watching my father go from healthy and active to being with him as he took his last breath barely five months later (**** you pancreatic cancer!!) I do not wish that on my family. It was a privilege to be there at the end but it was a terrible privilege. Give me a fatal heart attack or stroke any day.

That is why I strive to live each and every day as if it was my last. No regrets, no loose ends to tie up if I go suddenly.

Not me, because I have a lot of things to tie up and make right before I go so I'm definitely NOT ready anytime soon.
