Reportedly David's last words were "David wants to be a hero." This after courting someone who spent his last moments with him - perhaps finding Ayla, the "true love" of this life (and perhaps other lifetimes.)
We tend to think of things in terms of short, long - but when we're outside of time - on the flipside, there is little discussion of short or long, there's just that feeling of connectedness. Reportedly, a connection to our loved ones and to those we've loved before, and continue to love.
I can't explain, or try to explain why David's journey was so relatively short - but if you consider for a moment what thousands have said about the journey (in Flipside: A Tourist's Guide On How To Navigate the Afterlife or It's a Wonderful Afterlife: Further Adventures in the...) that it might be true - that we don't die, that we're here for a specific reason, that reason may only be known to our higher self, to our close loved ones, that others can't fully understand until they too are no longer on the planet - but to consider for a moment that the bonds between us don't fade, don't disappear, and are always with us.
And those accounts, that data, that research has been reported by many hospice care people, by case workers with Alzheimer patients (as recounted in Dr. Bruce Greyson's youtube talk "Is Consciousnes Produced by the Brain?") that just moments, sometimes hours or days prior to our passing, the filter seems to disappear, and people act like they're greeted by loved ones who've passed, are able to say goodbye to loved ones or are able to speak of themselves in the third person as he does here; "David," David said to his parents "wants to be a hero."
And David... is a hero. Continues to be a hero. Applause for his difficult journey, his difficult choice in playing this short but intense role. In nearly every session of deep hypnosis that I've filmed - I've filmed 25 so far - at some point, the person is asked "where would you (your spirit, or energy or soul) like to go now?" and they inevitably say - on camera - "I want to go home."
At first my brain scrambled for the meaning of what that meant - did they mean somewhere else on the planet? (or in my own case of filming a session, when I said it, was I thinking of my hometown?) I was startled to realize (in my case as well) that by "home" they all meant another place that's not here. "Home." The place that we all know and love, and feel the most happy and comfortable with... a place of unconditional love - a place that no one on the planet can agree is exactly the same - even twins - because we have our own perspective - but the word was used every time it was asked, and I eventually understood what they meant. Call it heaven. Call it the other realm. Call it backstage. But call it what it is. It ain't here.
Godspeed David, and condolences for his loved ones who no longer get to communicate with him on a daily basis, and Ayla as well. His soul mate. She will see him again. (at least that's what the research consistenly shows).
Not a belief or a philosophy or a religious concept. I'm only citing the data. It's what people say under deep hypnosis, its what they say after a near death experience, sometimes after a profound consciousness altering event. It's consistent, and as I've proven in my research, replicable with just about anyone. Or at least 25 so far. Condolences to his folks.
I would only add - pay attention to anyone who says they "felt his presence" or they experience a "dream" about him that seems "vivid." These accounts are often found in the research. And my advice is to not judge them, but honor them for the possibility that they might actually be his way of letting you know he's okay, he's still with you, and always will be.

"Our little man's last moments were laying with his mommy and daddy in the middle of the night, with a house full of family, friends and loved ones after days of being surrounded by love," his mom, Amber Spisak, wrote in a Facebook group where she chronicled the young boy's cancer battle.
"This day was supposed to come about 9-10 months ago, but David just wasn't done living yet, so he made his own timeline and defied the rules," the post continued. "The almost 7 years of cancer were so very hard, but nothing like the last few days."
Amber wrote that the last clear thing the family heard the young boy from Chesapeake, Virginia say was. "David wants to be a hero."
"I'm not ready to say things happen for a reason or a message of rainbows and sunshine just yet, but our baby boy was a fighter, a beautiful soul, a force to be reckoned with and of all the things, he is most definitely a hero," she continued.
David was diagnosed with leukemia at age two. After undergoing extensive chemotherapy and receiving two transplants, David beat cancer three times. Then, in March, his cancer returned.
Facing this fourth diagnosis, David's parents made the decision to stop David's treatments and allow him to live a normal life away from hospitals and painful procedures.
Doctors predicted that without treatment, David would only live for four to six weeks, but months passed, and David began to look better. When he returned to school to start second grade in September, he met a girl who captured his heart.
"In art class, I told her I liked her and she just had a surprised face so we started dating," David told WTKR in November.
When David became too sick to attend school, Amber found notes from Ayla saying that she loved and missed him. So she reached out to Ayla's mom to plan a date to lift her son's spirits.
David brought Ayla a teddy bear and roses, and she pushed him around in his wheelchair, helped him bowl and shared pizza with him.
"She's definitely had an impact on his spirit, and I haven't seen this side of him in a long time," Amber told WTKR.
She added, "The best part was watching the way they just needed to be close to each other and their conversation never got shy or quiet. That was all they needed to be happy."
At the end of the date, David stood up from his wheelchair and walked for the first time in a month.
"He was just so determined for her, he really pushed himself for her," Amber told ABC News. "Once we realized that this wasn't the typical elementary school crush, once we saw this heartfelt connection that they have, we were so happy that she came into his life and that he came to her life for some reason."
