To even start to share an alternative view of death, the mind has to consider that the way it sees most things may not be the way they are.
As with the email sent recently: “What you see is not what you get.”
Please ask your mind to consider…
*Life and death may not be separate states –
just separate ways of seeing and experiencing - the indescribable.*
I seem to have been born without a fear of death.
In addition to that born-with perspective, to me, either death Is oblivion, and then it does not matter , or a new level of the adventure.
One of the main fears of death (apart from pain) is regret.
Please consider this possibility:
Once you have lived your truth: done everything you want to do, been everywhere you want to go, met everyone you want to meet, have had every experience that you want have, shared everything you feel to share – you feel fully fulfilled.
Once you feel fully fulfilled, no regret – so no fear of death.
Not only that, you are open for any possible next stage of the adventure.
Death is not what you think it is. And it is not what you don’t think it is.
The state we call death cannot be thought.
As I said, I have not/am not finding it easy to share about this subject.
Life and death are so intertwined.
As I was writing, many perspectives popped up, but most of them did not seem to fit in appropriately. So instead of me trying to fit them in smoothly, just consider these as additional notes. Thanks.
On not being a ’there’ or a ‘here’:
After Bankie Yotaku had his realisation, his main message was:
“You are not born; you do not die.”
When a great friend of mine visited his father’s grave, he saw/felt his father standing there. My friend asked his father what he was doing here.
His father replied something to the effect that there is only here.
Another great friend, who had passed over, appeared to a friend ‘as a vision' and told them: “Don’t take it seriously – it is all a game."
There are thousands of instances of people who have clinically died and returned (often reluctantly) knowing that death is an illusion.
There are many studies of children who have proved beyond any doubt that they remember very clearly their previous life.
Some psychics chat away to ‘those on the other side’ as freely as they do to people who are in bodies. I have spent time with many such people.
On grief of the dead:
The main sadnesses of those left behind when someone dies, is, imagined empathy - fear of their own dying; regret that they did not share fully their truth with them; and going to miss them.
To miss them may be a natural feeling – but not healthy if you were living part of your life through them.
Some years ago we started a book: “Death – the lighter side.”
Sabine has done some cute illustrations of skeletons in fun poses.
This is an excellent addition to what was sent
Thank you Andrew.
" I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me”
"I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings"
For years my mother has been saying to people:
“If you are not happy how you are living your life, change it”
Not just people she knows, but anyone – in cafe’s, supermarkets, and even people she just met in the street.
The temptation is to listen, agree, then carry on the same old way.
Please, let this in: out of the many thousands of people with whom I have had contact, hardly anyone has listened enough to implement it into their lives. Always something more important or pressing. Later.
It is said that how you die is how you re-enter.
In other words, regret of the unfinished creates your re-entry circumstances in your next life.
(And it is rare that anyone knows exactly when they are going to die.)
But that is not the main aspect to be considered.
The main aspect is that regret is shaping your every moment in this life.
You may not be aware of it as the brain is so constructed as not to have you aware of all that it is processing – because you would not be able to handle it.
(That is what happens to many people who go psychotic – all the information comes through at once, unedited.)
Many years ago I used to hold weekly talks in New York with people who had been diagnosed with H.I.V. Hundreds came.
AIDS had just been ‘discovered.’ Anyone who tested positive to H.I.V. were told by their doctor that they had only six months to live. (So most did die in under six months. Suggestion – be careful of what you believe.)
Those meetings were the most alive of any.
The participants were very, very present.
'I have only six months to live – so how is the best way…?’
Just as a Sunday game… imagine your doctor has told you that you are going to die at the end of this year. Would you go on living in the same way?
If so, congratulations – you are probably living your maximum potential.
