From typo's brother:
~ While running on a trail in
the Pacific Coast mountains, I
dropped into a kind of reverie, a dreamlike state of awareness. I saw
myself lying in a hospital bed after a serious accident.
~ Mom was
standing over me saying, "You can't go now. I lost one son and I'm not
ready to lose another."
~ And while I was trying to return to body to
tell her I wasn't ready to leave yet, Barry came to me.
couldn't really see him, so much as I felt his presence and sensed a
soft but strong light emanation and "recognized" Barry's consciousness.
felt completely embraced and enfolded in a gentle awareness of
limitless love, peace, and compassion. I had the sense that Barry was
taking me on a kind of tour of the other side. I was aware, however,
that the life lived on the other side of this life is so much more free,
expanded and beyond what is possible while inhabiting a body that I
couldn't even fit what was being shown to me in my mind in a way that I
could talk about or bring back here with me.
So what Barry was really
giving me was a sense of how free and at peace he now is. And it has
been enough to carry me through the darkest moments of missing him as
well as the work required to take care of his affairs.
