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!
My son passed away recently, he was only 30 years old and while I know it is a choice, I can’t believe that this gifted, wonderful young man chose death over life. Was this part of our soul contract and did I do my part because I feel like I let him down since he didn’t choose to live. Will I ever recover from my grief?
Yesterday Michael and I attended the memorial service of a good friend's dad who died suddenly while helping a neighbor with a project at his home. The service was moving and sad and inspiring all at the same time. Of course his family and his loved ones are reeling from their unexpected loss. 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. Every time we experience a big shift in energy there are decisions and choices that some people have to make - do they want to be here, have they finished with what they have come to do, are they willing to continue with their life path or do they wish to be part of the awakening process?
We conclude today our review of what humanity has been taught by its various teachers and religions about WHAT GOD WANTS regarding every area of our life. I hope you have been clipping and pasting these last few entries in your personal files, for great future reference when anybody wants to chat with you about traditional religious teachings.
I made a pretty daring statement in Part II of this discussion about the thousands of people who lost their life in Japan over the past ten days. I said that all those who died did so because, “at a level other than the conscious level, they chose to.” I know that is hard to believe, given the Old Cultural Story humanity has believed and lived for thousands of years, and which most people still hold to be true today.
Recently the father of one of our staff members at the CwG Foundation celebrated his Continuation Day. Of course, it was a time of sadness for her loss, and we all felt it and did our best to send her our love. But the event also brought into my consciousness again the whole subject of death, and I turned then to the extraordinary book in the CwG series, HOME WITH GOD in a Life That Never Ends.
What if the world were to end tomorrow? Or, what if you had just 6 months left to live? Sometimes it helps to entertain such dramatic questions in order to bring what’s really important in life into focus. Ask yourself what really matters in your life. Ask yourself what you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t yet done. Then, think about how you occupy your time each da
Question: I have been a spiritual seeker almost all my life. I have had many wonderful experiences and feel I have grown and evolved immensely. However, there is still one area which I feel has not changed much and that is my fear of dying. How can I overcome this fear of death?
