A description of the experience

William Buhlman  - The Secret of the Soul

Mark J Berlin, Germany

It was while I was running in a marathon last year that I had a very strange experience. I was at about the eighteen-mile marker when I looked beside me and saw myself running. At first I thought it was someone who was my build and wearing the same shoes, but then I realized it was me! Even stranger was that my running "partner" was drenched in sweat, breathing hard, and in obvious discomfort . . . while I felt amazingly fresh and energized. The whole thing took only a few seconds.

When I shook my head-to clear the cobwebs - I was back in my sweaty self again. I got to the finish line, still not sure what had happened.  I am pretty much into my physical fitness – but this made me really think about the real me inside
