In the present moment, there is no death. Then where is death? It is somewhere in the future. When we are in the past and future world of the mind, we can anticipate the future. We can imagine the future. And that is where you will find death.
What does the afterlife look like? The main difference between this world and the hereafter is that after death the outer world is a direct reflection of our inner world. On earth, this is not so obvious. People who are filled with hatred and anger can be surrounded by beauty and abundance, while sensitive and evolved people may be wandering through desolate slums.
Equinox and all of Nature also teaches us that life keeps moving, all the time. Equinox only lasts 24 hours before the days start getting longer (or shorter depending on which hemisphere you’re in). We are shown that nothing lasts forever so appreciate what you have while you have it.
What an exciting week in the skies we’ve had. First a meteor hurled into Russia creating a magnificent light-show – and unfortunately thousands of broken windows and related injuries. However that’s incredibly fortunate given that it was a fireball travelling at 66,000 miles an hour!

There's nothing more painful than losing someone you love.
It was time to say goodbye to our beautiful, gentle Labrador. The decision to euthanase her, thus ending her life, was one we had wrangled with over two months. During this time we had decided yes, as we watched her struggling up and down the stairs in our home, limping toward us, her large shoulder joints riddled with arthritis. The once strong shoulders she had used to pull herself up as the strength had ebbed from her hips and thighs. But, after limping toward you, she would slowly sit sideways and give you the most gorgeous wide grin, full of love.
In this article Eckhart Tolle aswers the following question:My sons drowned in the sea ten months ago. I did surrender, but when I felt the peace and calm coming over me, it felt wrong. It was not right to feel peace and calm with such a loss.
The events of this weekend are probably why many of you (me too) experienced deep sadness, fatigue, feeling off balance, nausea, and low energy.
