It h.-.i-pi'iirtl I fell out of a boat and tang unable to swim I came face lo face with dying. The brought home some startling revelations. ririt, I discovered there are tv.-o separate and distinct phases in living. Tnr initial phase is the realization that death is near. This is lhe most terrifying. Tlic impai'i of this terror is sometliing Uiat can only be pspcrienced in dving. N'othing in life can match it. It is that every desperate attempt you are raak mg in live is failing that the end of your life is only wrond At this stage, n person loses all reasoning. A drmimng person will grasp for a floatirg straw. Foi anything that holds out a hope for life. The fight for life is so frantic that a person would even kill to save himself. 1 beii.'-ve I would have taken the lify of anyone, including my parent.--, ur any number of people, 100 or even l.noo. if it meant. I could continue to live. I think rr.ost people are like that. They would do anything to hang 'into life. me. these who have sacrificed themselves for a person or a cause were not motivated so much by courage as they u-erc by their own unconscious desire to die. Or perhaps they did not fully realize death was a pos- sibility until it was too late. Tile second phase of dying is giving up the struggle for life and letting death take over. After the "fruitless struggle for life, when you actually start to die physically, it is almost a relief. Your mint' still wants to live but ycur body mil not respond. it is like a rewarding sleep when your body ts exhausted. You have fought and lost. You are almost glad the battle is over, despite the culcome. There were two intriguing incidents which took place short- lv before I laid back into the arms of death. One '.vas that I surfaced three times before the end. Before, I discounted the belief that the third time down was the last as nothing more than an old saying. Now I know differently What I thoush was anotlicr old saying also turned out to be true. back into the water that final time. I cannot remember what I saw. but 1 know it happened. Fortunately. I was rescued from the button: of that lake. Curiously. I was found on the third, and what was to be the final, time my rescuer dove. This is as close to death as I ever want to come until it Is the real thing. Bu'. it is an experience that 1 regard with great value. Because when death does come, I will recognize it.
