I use to be Shintoist. And even then I was skeptical of it. I know this is "What if" but none of us can comprehend what it would be like to be God. When I had a near death experience, that all changed forever. Most of us only heard about these. Never knew they were true or thought much about it. There is most certainly a God but not the stereotype we make him out to be. Christians included. He's not an old white bearded man, but a bright light, like the sun. I was in the hospital with Lung Cancer. I remember seeing myself in my hospital bed and I was flat lined. As I stood there hopelessly watching nurses and a doctor resuscitate me, I began to involuntarily go down the hospital hallway when I encountered God. That's when I knew. I thought "Damn I should of listened. Grandma was right" I was terrified at first. But that all went away when God was in my presence. He is also not audible. Think of of it as telepathy used with telekinesis. Communication with him is all done through the mind. His love is something you can't explain. Like the love from my parents, or my fiance and I have for one another, it's like that times a million. Earth is like an old 8-bit Nintendo system. While heaven is like a PS4 in comparison. It makes me want to cry when I think of it. God wanted to know me even though I did not ever believe he was real. Then I remember waking up and I told my story to the nursing staff and doctor. They believed me because I told them what I saw when they were trying to do CPR as the doctor ran down the hall to get a resuscitation device. My heart stopped they told me. That's when they knew I wasn't lying. They were amazed to say the least. They then contacted a man by the name Dr. Kenneth Ring. One of the world renowned NDE researchers. he's a Professor Emeritus of psychology at the University of Connecticut, within the field of near death studies. That's all he does. He documented my case along with thousands of others throughout his 30 plus year career. Take this as you will, but I know what I saw. There's not a day that goes by I don't think about it. It was amazing.
