I haven't had any near-death experiences per se, although I've had a couple
of what I consider "mystical" experiences, where I perceived a direct
connection or communication with a divine Energy, something I call God.  It's
really hard to describe, except that at those few moments, I absolutely
*knew* that a God exists, to the point that somebody could have shot me dead
on the spot and I wouldn't have minded.  I haven't had any lately, and keenly
feel the difference - although I can't imagine dealing with daily, mundane
reality in a constant state of divine ecstasy.  I suppose a few saints have
pulled it off.  My grandmother once wrote to me that she had a near-death
experience, and was convinced by it that "we cannot die."  I have also had a
few experiences that I would characterize as psychic or telepathic, further
evidence that there's more to the mystery we call life than meets the eye.
