Post NDE, I rarely use a capital H for identifying the light
I met on the other side. I did sense that the light had the
very best qualities of the best mommy and the best daddy all
combined... so it was not really what I felt... Imagine if every
best daddy act of love and add to it every act of mommy love...
then throw in every moment of childlike awe... and that is the
light to me...
I had a near death experience and met 2 aspects of God. The first was a being of light who was like the best aspects of both male and female... The best mommy and the best daddy ever. Jesus, from the Christian tradition, called him Abba (Αββα) Father that means daddy as opposed to a more formal father but as our Catholic friend above answered Jesus has also referred to God as the feminine searching for her lost coin(children).
I found the being in heaven to be much more feminine than the masculine being I met on my way back to my body. Just outside the atmosphere I met a being with a brassy face, burning red eyes, beard, staff, star charts and all kids of scrolls. I believe this is the aspect of God that most masculine religions pray to and who Jesus told the religious people of his day that they prayed to a devil(the accuser). I sensed that aspect of God he was definitely masculine.
When Jesus calls God the father of lights, I know he was not referring to a masculine being but rather the positive masculine aspect of the Light many meet in Near Death Experiences. I met that aspect but I also met the feminine aspect that could only see my love. Imagine a mother whose child is on death row for murder... She says he could not have done it. He was never that way... because she does not see him that way... while the father is more concerned with justice, and getting his son off the streets so he does not ruin his father's good name.
I met both aspects in my NDE but I want to tell you that when I die again, I would much rather meet the femenine aspect of God than the masculine...
