a feeling of joy and anticipation

"Some, who have gone to edge of what we call ‘life,’ tell a consistent story.  They sense themselves moving across a bridge towards a bright, beautiful place on the other sideThey feel happy, buoyed up by a feeling of joy and anticipation.  They feel free of their bodies, that they are moving at an incredible speed towards God, and that they are being bathed in God’s love as if it were an avalanche of warm light.  In that brightness nothing else matters, neither sin nor misfortune nor worry nor suffering.  Their hearts and souls are filled with the presence of God’s glory.”
