On Death and Dying

The Buddhists believe that:

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.

Namaste.

Who Will You Memorialize Today?

I got to my desk this morning—coffee in hand, smoothie in stomach, my dog Coco under my heels. Suddenly I realized that my mind was completely blank. It’s Memorial Day and I can’t think of one person who has passed away that rises to the top of my “thank you” list. Why is that?

Every person who had intersected with me in my life, of course, was human and had his or her faults. Despite the good each had done for my life, each one also had passed along some bad habits, traits, and not-so-good advice that I wish I could unlearn. In my trough of unforgettables, I do have some amazing angels who had touched my life in ways that no one else could, because they specifically were chosen for the job. Or were they?

  1. Some were mean and caused me to be sharper.
  2. Some were critical and caused me to hone my skills to perfection.
  3. Others were just strong and stable, always willing to be the rock I needed.

Were they, indeed, human? Oh, yes! How do I know they weren’t angels or sent specifically to me for a purpose? Well, I know this for certain: Everyone in this tapestry of life is here for a purpose.

Life is full of moments that make up your story. Some are good, some bad. Some are just not all that memorable. However, every day as we surge forward with our desires and wishes, we intersect with other humans. This web of connection, when we look at it from a dynamic, omniscient perspective is quite complex. In fact, in one given day, it would appear that Spirit has orchestrated many people’s lives to exactly collide with us when we absolutely need to see or hear from them—positive or negatively. As planned, each person leads you in a purposeful direction.

 

Yesterday, I went to see a movie with my husband and my entire family living in Florida. Family gatherings can be laborious, but we all deal with the slight negativity and the jabs because they are family. However, this day was different. I was kind of dragged into seeing a movie after dinner that I just wouldn’t have picked in a million years.

 

In the movie was a scene that felt as if it had been made out of a spiritual dream I have had over and over again. Not only was it a dream I have, but it is a dream that my husband and I share and talk about often in our prayers together.

We were astonished at how exact the scene was compared to our own spiritual ideas and truth. In that moment, it didn’t matter if I enjoyed the movie or not. I was sitting between my mother and my sister, both of whom I cherish and adore, and I just got a confirmation of sorts that said from Spirit: “Hey, not only am I listening, but I’m affirming that you are on the correct track!”

When I look at the web of intersecting threads of life from this perspective, I can’t even conceive of what Spirit had to do to make that scene happen at that very moment for the sake of David and I. This amazing human life, though it can feel and look so terrible sometimes is such a miracle. This is what I want to memorialize today. This is what I want to be thankful for.

It is not the individuals that I want to place on a pedestal. Yes, all of them played an important role in the drama. But, the miracle of this tapestry of life and amazing colors and hues is what makes me want to say: “Thank You Everyone for being a part of my amazing life!”

Your Struggle Has an End

I remember a woman who had survived cancer only to find out that, once again, her body was riddled with it in almost every vital organ. She took the news like a trooper. I asked her what was her secret to happiness. She answered:

“Everything that is and was has already happened. The secret to my happiness is that I am thankful for it, but I don’t live in the past. I take pleasure in what is happening right now, no matter what that is. Now is my only moment…

…to thrive and to be happy. I’m not going to waste it.”

I’ll never forget that moment. She ended up living far longer than anyone could have imagined with her degree of cancer. Her attitude alone kept her healthier and free of debilitating pain.

I also believe she understood that in human life there is a beginning, middle and end to everything. There is nothing wrong with a flower wilting and dying at the end of its journey.

I wish we could hold on to things and that life wouldn’t change, especially the good. Let’s face it: Life changes. It either evolves or dies. I take pleasure in knowing this, because I realize that every step in this life is about adventure—not destiny.

Most of what I have worked toward in life has come to pass. Trust me when I say this:

The journey was far longer and contained more than the few moments of glory at the end of the path. When we realize this part of life, we stop striving so hard and relax into the beautiful and authentic moments that each step toward our goals is even more important than the goals themselves.
