I could see the people more clearly now. From the soft glow they were materializing like from a thick fog being burnt off by the light. They were all around me in a perfect circle linked by the soft glow. They were all smiling. Their smiles, as the one I felt on my own face, were radiant and spoke of unencumbered love and joy without saying a word. How these feelings though new to me were all of me now. They filled me. Any thoughts of anxieties, worries, or pain no longer existed. As the people became even clearer, I noticed their eyes too. There was a spark in them. As windows to the soul, they spoke of no evil, only this light that filled us all. What wonders I had known would be mine when I had knelt so many years ago. I knew now. It was no throne of gold that I had first knelt at, but a couch with sunken pillows in a tiny darkened room with no windows. It had been the first step to this feeling that now filled me so that no other would ever be there again. Friends and family approached as I reached out my hands to them. I saw we all had this soft glow as they reached out to me and I knew them as they had been before but for just an instant. It was a flash as their faces transformed and I saw them as I had last seen them but here they were young and strong. They all welcomed me with open arms. I saw no doubts. They had known I was coming. They were here for me, as when I had arrived I knew they would be. I had no doubts either. One by one the light we shared touched and in each touch, my vision like in a fish bowl seemed larger and what I was seeing with my eyes was only the edges.
I had heard no voices or sounds as my eyes adjusted and the fish-bowl effect focused back to what I was used to. Then I heard soft murmurs, then words and music so clear it filled the air, yet was not loud, just as though it adjusted for me, to what I needed to hear. The welcomes and greetings from each and all were jumbled like many symphonies playing all at once, but I understood them as if it were spoken one at a time. I listened to the many voices again and heard no rasping or hoarseness. I heard them as the symphony, but knew some of them as my Mom, Dad, and Grandma. Their voices all sounded so young and musical in my ears. It was so beautiful it did not sound like words but I heard,” John, welcome home.”
