The next happening was that I got very ill with an abdominal abscess that turned out to be secondary to a colon cancer.
For about six weeks during convalescence, I had a hard-to-describe feeling that I wasn’t properly attached to my body – I was sort of half out of it in some way. And the main concomitant of this feeling was that I could see how everything in the material world around me is made of Light.
It felt as if I were perceiving a lovely, glowing reality beneath the mundane surface of the world.
I’ve always subsequently liked those rather naff, fibre-optic Christmas trees because they remind me a little of what I experienced then.
It all stopped quite suddenly one afternoon when I got fully re-attached to my body. The experience of this was brief but entirely clear and mildly unpleasant, like putting on muddy, dirty clothes after a refreshing swim. All other-worldly light disappeared, apart from echoes of it sometimes to be glimpsed as a setting sun lights up a hillside for example.
