On Death and Dying
October 12, 2018
All human life is as a person getting into a boat—on a voyage. However, the vessel has one small hole at the bottom, giving the journey an inevitable end.
This belief is not tragic, but authentic. It is realistic and conventional. The boat of human life will eventually sink. It has a beginning, middle, and end. It will eventually end when the journey is over or when we have learned enough. What everyone must accept is that:
the journey is measured.
We don’t know if:
- our spirit had decided ahead of time how long we would stay on Earth as human—in third density bodies,
- there is a Great power that decides for us how long we stay, or
- if a collective consciousness decides together.
We do know, however, that the journey ceases… for some at an old age, and for others, it seems, before it has barely begun.
I recently have had a few friends make their transitions. Many I have known in this human body have gone from this world to the next. Some much too young and others from illness, and yet others have given up the body well after their physical selves had ceased to function properly. It seemed that some people have simply “willed” their existence to stay a bit longer than they intended.
I have strong inclinations about the process and have learned great lessons each time I’m faced with a death of a close friend or family member. One thing is for certain: The suffering seems to be diminishing, as I remind myself that he or she who has passed is now in a more blissful place, in my estimation, if they were on a positive path on Earth. Perhaps, some will move on to another dimension or to another existence somewhere else to learn more lessons, lessons that they didn’t quite get here on Earth. In each case, though, I’m the one who will miss his or her presence on my Earth Journey. He or she who has passed on is already growing and moving forward to a different dimension.
What I have learned recently is a great lesson:
- When someone makes his or her transition, their presence in your life doesn’t diminish, it grows, if you’re watching and meditating;
- When someone passes on, he or she can become your guardian in the Spirit, giving you sage advice while you dream (at least, for awhile);
- When someone’s body ceases to function on Earth, his or her Spirit moves forward onto a paradigm unbeknownst to us; and mostly
- When you let go of your physical body, you expand into a dimension that has many choices—both positive and negative.
Perhaps, you know this already. I just wanted to share my experience, incase you are grieving over the loss of someone close. If you have recently lost a dear friend or family member, I’m knowing this for you:
The clear choice in life is to always let go of fear. When you do, amazing things happen in your physical, mental, and spiritual lives. As you feel your intense emotions, know that a gentle voice calls you to resolution with this soul who has passed on. You were never meant to spend the rest of your life with him or her. You had a journey and a lesson plan. Now it is over. It was intense, wonderful, joyful, hard, but always real.
Now, what is yours to do is reflect on it for as long as you need.
Be with yourself. Let go and be quiet until you gain the strength you need to move forward.
