is interesting reading about reincarnation. I was raised
a strict Catholic with all the trimmings (Catholic School).
I was told that the thought of reincarnation was wrong
and should not be discussed. Basically I took that as
truth and never discussed it.
always puzzled me, however, was a recurring dream I
have had since I was a child. The dream is always the
same and ends with my suddenly waking up, my heart beating
100 mph. I dream that I am in a steel room with no way
out. There is water rising, slowly closing in on me.
When the water is just about to cover me I wake up.
The dream is the same every time, and I am now 47 years
few years back, I was watching a documentary on the
attack at Pearl Harbor and I felt the same fear while
viewing the program that has haunted me for so many
years in my dreams. It was almost as if I could feel
and see what the trapped sailors inside the ships were
experiencing. I became very frightened and anxious for
the duration of the program, and think about it every
time I see the Arizona memorial.
was a trained physician who gave up my medical degree
to become a boat captain and biologist. The sea has
always drawn me. I seem to feel at ease when I am close
to the ocean. I run a research vessel in South Florida.
I travel around the world periodically teaching islanders
who rely on the ocean for a livelihood. I teach them
how to utilize their resources properly and keep the
marine environment healthy for generations to come.
I am amazed how much our incredible environment reinforces
our faith in God.
I dive into the deep in a one man submersible (interesting
that I can get into one considering the dreams I have)
and see what few men have seen, I am in total awe of
God. As a physician I have studied the body extensively
and once again am totally in awe of our God. I guess
I am lucky to be able to see and feel so many extraordinary
things. God has blessed me with proof of his existence.
If everyone could see the physical earth this way, there
would be no non-believers.
