Final portion, questions and answers Ok Ok Ok, another great Raymond story. This could only be Raymond. When he visited me the first time, he came in late at night, and said he would simply stay at a hotal near the airport. I didn't think much of it, and came and picked him up in the morning.
To my horror, Raymond was staying at a motel where usually people stay by the hour, not the day! I was mortified, felt guilty I hadn't picked him up the night before. Of course, Raymond simply went to the first motel he saw, and he didn't notice anything unusual or odd about where he was staying.
As I picked up his bags, the guy behind the desk comes over and profusely thanks Raymond. Several of the people milling around the lobby did so as well.
I asked the guy, "why were you thanking him". He said to me: "you know, I have never met a man like him. You know he's a Psychiatrist. Well he came down to the lobby and told us all about what it is to die, and how god's love will come to us all when we die, and listened to everyone's problems. He was so patient, they were actually lining up to talk to him.
He was so gracious, what a loving man. Everyone just felt so good about themselves after spending time with him.
And then he looked around and sort of whispered to me: Believe me buddy, the sort of (scum) who come here really need to believe in something, they needed to have someone listen to them who cares, when are they ever going to have that happen again. We will never forget the man who taught us that we are all god's children when we die.
I was so astonished and humbled by Raymond. I asked Raymond about it, and he just shrugged, as if nothing special had happened. "Oh, I just shared with some of the people I met there".
I have no doubt that Raymond Moody is changing lives and helping people from all walks of life, and he probably doesn't even know he's doing it, just Raymond being Raymond.
Raymond, if you ever read this, I bow to you, and say "I am not worthy".
