Earlier this month, I attended a convention of the
International Association of Near Death Studies. www.IANDS.org
Addressing the convention:
I mentioned that in the work of Raymond Moody, M.D. Life After Life
( He founded the group; our hero -- my friend. ) he included
the life review experience during death of one Tom Sawyer
who told of experiencing an incident of slugging a motorist
in the mouth numerous times because of a vehicular collision
and of FEELING the pain
in his victim.
I told them that I 'd extrapolated
that u 'd empathically feel the joy
that u inflict upon others, during your life review experience
and that I 'd executed some hedonic efforts, by surprize,
upon people who were not expecting
them; mostly kids
I mentioned that I 'd so informed Raymond,
while visiting him at his lumber mill in Alabama.
I said: "this is YOUR
work, because I got the idea from your
shoud experience this in YOUR
post-"death" life review."
Not long thereafter, I was accosted by a priest, in uniform,
me on this, ( I don 't like to get called )
directing my attention toward a target
who he alleged had some ruff times getting to the convention
and who allegedly needed some financial relief.
what I have posted hereinbefore:
of the time, I have rejected, dismissed, refused & brushed off
direct applications for cash (unless I 'm in the right mood).
The overwhelming majority of my donations are UN
expected n by surprize
Anyway: I figured: "what the hell?" and sought out the target
ed him a $5O bill
. (That 's a play on words.)
