13. Yes I'm interested as time permits

I was in my college days then. The experience didn't make that semester very easy, once recuperating from that experience. I don't get much time to reflect on it anymore, but strangely, the experience eased my fear of death. I feel I got a "preview" of what to expect.
There is definite wisdom in the phrase "go to the light".
If one is ready, and it is time, the light will accept you and reincarnate your spirit.
I'd love to have time to read more about Buddha. What little I know I gleaned from reading Siddhartha as a youth. Other explorations of most any religion have left me perplexed with complex structures. I'm also more comfortable as a homosexual person with Buddhism's peaceful edicts superceding those of judging other's sexuality. Conversely, Christian "ministers" who propose concentration camp style death sentences for those of my persuasion scare the hell out of me.
Albeit my extracorporeal experience was short in time, the rich, profound effect it had on my beliefs exceeded all religious study and time I've ever spent.
