Can it be someone else's life?

My future moment involving my future family :biggrin:

I have thought about reliving someone's else life; problem is that everyone has deficiencies and I am willing to accept someone's else weaknesses more than mine. I believe I have shaped myself to something I am proud of and weaknesses are part of what I am.

I have one (perhaps another), but I can't describe it without risking an infraction. It was life-changing, though, and involved an older girl who was very close to me. Have you (guys) been "initiated" by some lady that you adored and worshiped when you were a kid?

Older cousins don't always play the same peer/age games that your class-mates do.

Much younger and cuter, and salivated-over by the neighborhood-boys when she stayed with us. A couple of years difference can be pretty impressive to a kid.

So anyone who know's me knows I studied Jewish mysticism formally.
My answer is, after many years already in training, I accidently saw an indication of the direction in which to look to see nothing.
I jumped up and ran to the other side of the living room my heart pounding out of my chest. It was the single most frightening thing I had ever seen.

Second would be a time a dying patient looked at me with such love from some place I had never imagined, my knees went out from under me and I fell on the ground.

Third would be the first time I saw This Is It, MJ. I love him.

Thanks for making me recall some perplexing, cathartic, revealing, embarrassing, and also truly wonderful and uplifting moments in my life. Sometimes I think that the moments I would like to relive are 'eureka moments', or 'triumphal moments'. Then again, I have to think that the best moments are those times when I experienced a quiet connection with someone I trusted.

But I guess that the very best moment was when I first realized that I'm not important or special, that I'm part of something that I can't pretend to understand.

Giving birth to my daughter, I think. Maybe not the whole 28 hours!

I'd like to relive the moment in which I'm given time to decide which moment to relive. With proper recursion, I should be immortal (if not bored).

I think you might prefer to be bored given that some folks think something involved a "sex encounter."

Oh! What moment would I like to relive before I die!

Out of sincere respect for someone who was perhaps the best friend I ever had, I will simply remember her for the wonderful person she was and probably always will be.

It would matter as much as any other moment.

Do you recall that ? How can you be aware of the moment in which you became aware of your self identity?
