I think of life like being on a surfboard and I'm riding it in to shore. The surfboard analogy is a metaphor for life. The goal is to get in to shore (which is the end of life) as far as possible without being bumped off the surfboard. All the obstacles in life, which are mostly people, are things that might knock me off that board.

Right now I'm up on that board riding smoothly in to shore. I try and keep in mind that all of life's "bumps" are little things that after I cross over I won't give two hoots about. Even the big stuff is not that important if you really think about it. The goal is to stay up on that board and keep it pointed in to shore. Don't let people or obstacles knock you off that board.

I recently hit 60 years old which means I probably just started the last quarter of my life. More than likely I've all ready lived at least 3/4s of my life. At this stage of the game I want to avoid as many obstacles as possible.


Excerpt from Michelle M's NDE:
"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."
