Stunning answer. Nothing to add. Best to you, Sarra.
Thank you Emanate Presence. All is good and will be. I'll get to see my sister again faster than expected.
Have you by 'chance' seen the video of the young man who also learned of his mortality? It was published online not too long ago. Very touching.
I have some catching up to do with those who passed through the veil first also, when the time comes.
Sarra, I am inspired by your extraordinary outlook! I watched a friend become positively transformed when he learned of his mortality, and it has had a profound effect on many people. My best to you for every day,

The mental image brings a smile. Seems the sense of 'aliveness' came from the adrenaline rush. Thanks.

I am guessing it was the shared experience with your son that made the moment even more alive.
And I relate to the flying dreams. They can be exhilarating and the feeling sometimes remains long afterward. Thanks.
I LOVE flying dreams! I used to have them all the time and am so frustrated that I pretty much don't anymore. :( I'm so going to fly in heaven, though. And have a flying horse, too. :D

Connorj, did you experience an NDE? From what you wrote, you seem like you did, but did not remember anything. Yet, you sense it, as when you mumbled: "Is it ok if I go back?"
Yes indeed it was considered a NDE; I wrote a hub about it titled There and Back. here is the link, http://hubpages.com/religion-philosophy/There-and-...
Beyond words. I knew of your NDE, Connorj, but this brings an element to it I'd not seen before. Thank you for sharing. Thumbs up.

All I can say is; "Thomas (that would be me), because thou hast been close, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not had that experience (that would be you and some others), and yet have believed."
I love the comment, Connorj.
Do you think we all have some doubting Thomas, some Peter the rock, and some John the beloved in us?
We are complex beings, are we not?
I certainly cannot muster an argument against that...

A wonderful story, beautifully told in a few sentences. You definitely won a gift far greater than any lottery prize.
2007 was a very good year, as they say, for you I see.
You mentioned some good points of what contributed to the feeling of aliveness - confidence, love, laughter...
May you have many more, PoeticPhilosophy.
Beautiful. The connection of heart-felt love between father and daughter.
What a beautiful image! I know the feeling of this too, and it is exhilarating!
Yes, there can be quite an exchange of energy between performer and audience. Good show!

Yes, I wonder how often people consider when they feel the most alive. The answers here are amazing, such variety. Flying like Superman would be cool.
