It has to be emotional enough to where we remember it. There is a connection between emotion and memory. The more emotional the experience the more powerful and long lasting the memory it creates. by the way, when we get to the other side it will seem like it went by in the blink of an eye. - Art

"I felt an understanding about life, what it was, is. As if it was a dream in itself. It's so very hard to explain this part. I'll try, but my words limit the fullness of it. I don't have the words here, but I understood that it really didn't matter what happened in the life experience, I knew/understood that it was intense, brief, but when we were in it, it seemed like forever. I understood that whatever happened in life, I was really ok, and so were the others here."
