I experienced this..it is what occurs when... please do not judge me..I have no desire to lie...or Reason..it is Forbidden..It is a overwhelming experience...and brought me to the edge of Insanity... I am choking up.. happened maybe 3 years ago...I.. Spiritual Enlightenment... maybe I was allowed to find God because I had come to the end of my will to live.... and....I was going to hang myself...had to find God...I was certain that the life I had lived did not warrant my Honor to be taken from me...I was not accepting damnation for taking my life...it was this Country that stole my Will to live...I had a Self Righteous Reason... this Existence was not of My God's creation...done Wrong in so many ways... almost stoned to Death... "As they tie themselves onto the poles, it uncovers the lies in All of Your Holes." When all that is tangible no longer Matters, your mind drifts away to the only place left that does Matter; the Intangibles..it is a place without Substance but it is FULL of Emotions.

zondervan

zondervan

My Dutch mother told me that a Dutch immigrant arrived in the USA and decided to adopt a name that had no historical connotation, such as aristocratic names that include a 'van' (lower case 'v'). Thus 'zonder van' means 'without van'. This immigrant had left the class-ridden society he had known the Netherlands. I would love to know whether this story is genuine, or whether my Mother (born in 1911) had made it up!
