I was in the sky that day, the place people call heaven. Many children were there, playing innocently and waiting for their days to come into this world. One day God appeared before me and said, “Now it’s your turn to go into the world, but you are a special spirit, and have a special mission, which is to tell the world about the preciousness of life and love. Life is so precious and valuable. Loving and valuing life make people gentler and enhance their lives. Life is so vulnerable sometimes, and because of this, life must be cherished and protected. To tell these things to the world, you must come back here soon without spending a long life together with your mother and father, although this will be very hard. This is your mission for your life. Through this brief life, you and your mother will love each other and experience ultimate love. Your mother and father are very loving parents. So don’t be afraid, have courage and go into the world!” Then I became light itself and went into my mommy’s body. Since then, I spent the most wonderful days, weeks, and months, experiencing feelings that I had never experienced before. I was so comfortable in my mommy’s body filled with her motherly love showering down on me. I was satisfied in each and every moment. For the first time I truly understood the wonderful experience of connecting and loving each other that you can only experience in this world. I was happy, many times, many dozens of times, happier than I felt in heaven, because mommy, in her everyday life always cared for me above anything else, and loved me lavishly above anything else. While expecting me mommy sometimes became nervous and had slight fears. But most of the time I was able to feel secure, being protected by the light of love. I heard and felt my mommy’s prayers and hopes for me. The slow, quiet, and gentle time seemed to last forever. I don’t know how much time passed, but one day I heard the voice of God again, telling me that I had to leave my mommy soon. I knew I would have to leave mommy and return to heaven. I was so sad and wondered how my mommy could bear such sorrow. Thinking of the deep sorrow my mommy has to bear I felt a tightening in my chest and my heart ached. Suddenly a bright light surrounded me; the next moment my spirit departed from my body before I knew it. Mommy was so confused. It was very sad to see mommy so confused. I said, “Mommy, Mommy don’t be confused. I am here!” I was trying desperately to speak to my mommy’s mind. Mommy, I see how your heart aches for the deep sorrow of losing me. You struggle to get through each day. Facing the reality you cannot hold me anymore, someone you loved so much. I know you are suffering great sorrow. Having to realize the life you were hoping to enjoy with me does not exist anymore. I returned to heaven to fulfill the promise that I made to God before I came into this world and fulfill my last task in this world. But I hope you understand one thing, I was happy and satisfied in your womb. I was growing beautifully. I was healthy. You always thought about me and cared for me. I knew you were happy having me in your body. This feeling was gentle and comfortable and made me really happy. I hope just one thing. I hope that I gave you not only sorrow but also wonderful memories of days that you spent with me. I understand you are feeling deep sorrow now, but please do not worry. Even in the most sorrowful season in life, there is always bright hope. Even if you are in the middle of darkness now, time will roll around and you will see light in your life again. For everyone, life always offers hope.
