A golden being, intensely beautiful, lifts a beckoning arm towards me and asks,
“WHAT HAVE YOU LEARNED AND HOW WELL HAVE YOU LOVED?”
I feel more than hear this question as it burns into my mind, into my very being that is now only soul and energy and light! Startled, I am filled with an urgency to answer this seemingly simple request, knowing that it is all important and requires everything of me – who I am and what my life has been all about.
I pause and as I do so, I feel my life rush by, answering the question posed. I observe it all without the emotions that the events I am watching once caused in me. I am puzzled by this for a moment but not concerned. Once done, I look to the being beside me. If I had breath . . . I would have been holding it.
