I had overdosed. It wasn’t planned. I felt myself starting to tremble, and the next thing I knew I was looking down at my body. I felt no fear looking at myself lying there. I remember clearly saying if this is death, it’s wonderful. I recall some kind of people surrounding me in a circle like form, but I couldn’t make them out. I felt comfortable with them. There was a light behind them in the distance. I remember saying this is wonderful and then being told that I couldn’t stay. I don’t recall any anger at the news. Everything seemed just matter of factly. I had a severe heart attack in 2001 and did not experience it again, not even when they administered a dye that put me into cardiac arrest.

He said, "Hey, you should check out a Society of Friends meeting. They don't have any sermons and just meditate for an hour or so together." I was intrigued and after we hung up I looked them up on the Internet. I found out that they were what I knew as "the Quakers" and after only a few minutes of searching, came across a posting that explained a style of meditation they do called "Looking for the light within." I printed it out, took it to my bed and read what it said. It was very simple: Get into a comfortable position, close your eyes, focus your attention on the darkness and look for a light within. When you see a light, focus on it. So that's exactly what I did.
