    The Life That I Have

    [​IMG]

    The life that I have, is all that I have,
    And the life that I have is yours.

    The love that I have, of the life that I have,
    Is yours, and yours, and yours.

    A sleep I shall have, a rest I shall have.
    Yet, death will be but a pause,
    For the peace of my years,
    In the long green grass,
    Will be yours, and yours, and yours.

    Great White Spirit, Father/Mother of all life,
    The love that I have for the life you have given me
    Is yours and yours alone.
    The death I shall have on parting from this plane
    Will neither be a pause nor a falling asleep.
    Hand in hand with the Angel of Death
    You will be sending me,
    I shall go forward, without a trace of fear,
    Wide awake, with open heart and mind,
    Into the beauty and wonders of the spirit realm.

    I bless and thank You
    For allowing me to know these things.
    In all Eternity my spirit and soul
    Shall sing the praises of
    Your boundless and unshakeable love.

    I Am Free

    [​IMG]

    Don’t grieve for me, because I am free,
    Continuing the path our Creator designed for me.
    I took the Angel’s hand when I heard its call,
    Left earthly life behind and said farewell to all.

    I could not stay another day
    For loving and laughter, singing and play.
    Unfinished tasks will have to stay that way.
    I’m exchanging them for the peace
    That awaits all of us at the end of our earthly days.

    Should my parting in your life leave a void,
    Fill it with the memories of shared joys
    Like friendship and laughter and also a kiss.
    These are the things I too shall miss.

    Do not burden yourself with sorrow,
    But let the eternal Sun light all your tomorrows.
    My life’s been full and I’ve savoured much:
    Good friends, fine times and the loving touch.

    And if my time with you appeared too brief,
    Refuse to stretch it with weeping and grief.
    On the wings of sacred God’s wisdom and truth
    Lift yourself above the boundaries of earthly life
    And in your thoughts share with me
    The freedom I found when
    The Angel of death set me free.

    There’s A Place For You Here

    [​IMG]

    Even though you sometimes
    Think you’re feeling too much,
    If this world is too painful for you,
    Don’t go,
    There’s a place for you here.

    It’s okay to stop and rest.
    If you need a break, it’s all right to say so.
    Earthly life is neither a contest,
    Nor a race or a performance.
    It isn’t something one wins or loses.

    You are here for more than grades,
    Jobs and promotions,
    More than keeping up
    With those around you or
    Merely just getting by.
    It’s okay to slow down.

    Earth life is not about status
    Opinions or appearances.
    There’s no need for faking anything,
    Have the courage to be yourself
    And feel your feelings,
    They are there to tell you something and
    Other people are geared just the same.

    If your heart is broken,
    It’s okay to say it is.
    If you feel stuck, just say so.
    If you can’t let go of something old,
    For the time being,
    That’s okay, too.

    You are not alone in this world.
    Beavering away behind its surface,
    On the spiritual level of life,
    Friends and helpers are beavering away,
    Who are part of you and therefore know how you feel.
    They are aware of your true value,
    That you are much more than is visible
    Of you on the surface of life.

    The friends behind the scenes are
    Waiting for you to ask for their help.
    Because of freedom of will they can otherwise
    Not come to you and show you the way.
    It’s never too late for a new beginning
    And you are never alone.
    Whatever you truly need
    And anything else that’s rightfully yours
    Is sure to come to you,
    In due course.
    Just ask and see what happens.

    There’s a place for every one of us here
    And also in our other world,
    But for a while that one can wait for you.
    No matter how dire any situation may appear to be,
    There is always a way forward and
    Whenever you think you can’t carry on any longer,
    You are ready to discover
    That in truth no-one is ever alone.

    On the inner level all life is one and
    There is no separation between anything.
    Everybody has a Higher Self, who has been waiting
    For a long time to show us how to find our way.
    We also have friends and helpers in the spirit world.
    All we have to do is reach out and request their help.
    Without asking nothing can reach us
    From the higher levels of life.
    For love’s sake don’t disappoint them!

    About Pain And Sorrow

    [​IMG]

    Know that you are a beloved child of the Universe and that what you are presently going through is merely a passing phase. Our life moves forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral in two and a half year circles and I guarantee that you will not always feel the way you are doing now. God and the Angels, as well as countless other spirit friends and helpers, invisible to earthly eyes, have always been with every one of us. And because on the inner level of life they are part of us, they know our troubles only too well. They are willing to help us, but cannot do so unless someone asks for it. So, why not have a go at reaching out to them and requesting their assistance? Then sit back and observe what kind of form it may take. It often comes in quite unexpected and miraculous ways. You will be surprised, of that I am sure.

    Finding great joy and lasting happiness * is the birthright of all human souls. In fact, the whole gamut of feelings human beings are capable of have to be experienced by each one of us at some time, though not necessarily all in the same lifetime. Wise ones appreciate that earthly life is filled with rights. And they bear in mind that every right brings with some kind of duty and that this includes the one of experiencing at some stage of their development the depths of depravity, pain and suffering. This is the only way human beings can get to know the difference between the polar opposites of God’s nature and their own *.

    About Pain

    [​IMG]

    A woman spoke: ‘Tell us of pain!’
    And the Prophet replied:
    ‘Your pain is but the breaking of the shell
    That encloses your deeper understanding.
    You have to know pain,
    Even as the outer shell of any fruit has to break,
    So that the seed it contains can begin to grow and emerge into the Sun.

    If you could but open your heart to the wonder
    And the miracle that is your life and all life,
    So that you could see that they are contained in everything.
    If you could do that, your pain would not seem less wondrous
    Than your joy.
    You would then be able to accept the seasons of your heart,
    Both their coming and their going,
    In the same way as the inevitability of the seasons
    That pass over your fields.
    And you would watch yourself, with serenity and wonder
    Through the winters of any grief,
    Knowing with certainty that spring and resurrection
    Will surely follow.
    And that even in the event of the death of your physical body
    You can be sure to be granted the gift of another lifetime on the Earth,
    For as long as you require it.

    With the onset of wisdom, you will begin to recognise
    That much of your pain is self-chosen and that
    It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you,
    Your Highest or God Self,
    Is trying to heal your small, sick and wounded earthly self.
    Understanding this you will be able to trust
    The Divine Wisdom of your very own Heavenly physician,
    And drink Its remedy in silence and tranquillity.

    You will then rest safely in the knowledge that
    Its hand is only seemingly hard and heavy,
    And that in truth the cup that now burns your lips
    Is given to you by the tender hand of the Unseen,
    And that this cup has been fashioned from the clay,
    Which the Great White Spirit, the potter of all life,
    Is moistening with Its own sacred Father/Mother tears.’

    Just A Thought Away

    [​IMG]

    There’s a place somewhere,
    Where loved ones meet
    After leaving the earthly plane.
    It’s not some far distant heavenly place,
    But on the inner spiritual level of earthly life,
    A world that is never
    Further away than a thought.

    It is a world of warmth and light,
    Healing and love, where
    Fear and anger, loneliness and pain
    Are shed and left behind at the threshold.
    When human spirits and souls have rested
    And recuperated sufficiently from
    The trauma of earthly life,
    This is the place from which we eventually
    Set off on yet another earthly learning quest
    That helps us to grow some more
    In wisdom and understanding.

    Every time we have attended another round of
    Earth life’s tests, trials and tribulations,
    We return to this place for rest, comfort and healing.
    The ministering Angels
    And many other spirit friends and helpers
    Are there to attend to our needs.
    Wise beyond compare,
    Knowing the answers to our questions,
    They accompany and advise us.

    Once more we have found out
    From first hand experience
    That there really is no death,
    And that all worlds and beings,
    Including your loved ones and you,
    Always have been and forever will be
    Safely enfolded in the loving embrace
    Of the Universal Forces.

    Mother Earth is a living and breathing organism. She is but one of the innumerable manifestations of the Great Mother and has a spirit and soul, the same as we have. During our times spent in the Earth’s environment our spirit and soul are part of hers, and they in turn are an element of the Great Spirit and Soul of all life, the Great Father/Mother.

    Our earthly self, however, is all of the Earth and belongs to her, as the name implies, whereas the characteristics of our highest nature are part of our spirit and soul and purely of God. From the earliest beginnings of our presence on this planet, in the tiniest of movements these higher qualities have constantly been trying to push into the foreground of our earthly self’s consciousness. They wish to make themselves known to us, so we can bring them forth and start sharing them with those around us, and with this making our contribution towards Mother Earth becoming an ever more pleasant and beautiful place for every one of her children, in all her kingdoms.

    Each time we return into the world of spirit, we leave our earthly self behind – so to speak – on the level where it belongs, the Earth, to be picked up again as soon as we re-enter this existence in a new physical body. The whole of the earthly self is imprinted in our soul memories. Its recollections are contained in the cells of our body in our next lifetime. The soul belongs to our waterbody, the world of feelings and emotions. It is highly sensitive to everything it comes into contact with, which leaves its impression in it.

    As nothing in the whole of Creation is ever wasted, when we hand our physical body back to the Earth, its components are recycled down to the last cell and atom. They contain the consciousness we have reached at the moment of our passing. In this way they become part of the Earth. With every small evolutionary step one of us makes, Mother Earth evolves with us.

    Even the least evolved souls upon their return into the world of spirit cannot help noticing that in truth they are spirit and soul, eternal and immortal beings of light. At last they too know that at the end of each lifetime, every one of us without exception returns to this world, our true home, to rest and recuperate from the trials and tribulations of Earth life. Having once again been released onto that level of life, the freedom we enjoy there may well feel like heavenly bliss, but Heaven itself – the final oneness with God – it is not.

    The Sailing Ship – An Allegory

    [​IMG]

    Imagine in your mind’s eye, if you will, a sailing ship. After a long break on dry land it is getting ready to once again enter into the freedom of the high seas. The ship shows great beauty and strength, as it joyfully opens its snowy white sails and offers them to the morning breeze. You are one of those left behind at the shore. Sadly, you watch the ship’s departure until you can see no more of it than a speck of white cloud on the horizon where the ocean meets the sky. A mournful voice close by says: ‘Ah, it’s gone!’

    During the coming days, you keep wondering to yourself: ‘Where did the ship go?’ Finally, you come to the conclusion that this does not really matter because you know that wherever it may be now, it will be still as beautiful as it ever was, and that its mast and hull will be just as strong as when it left your shore. At that moment, as if in a dream, you sense a voice calling to you from some distant shore: ‘It’s arrived safely. It’s here!’

    The death of the physical body is similar. Nothing changes, we remain the same one we always were. Our feelings and desires remain unchanged. All we have done is shedding our outer shell like a worn out overcoat. Eternity is here and now and everywhere. Each moment we spend on the Earth plane and all other worlds is an integral part of Eternity. Any loss on our present level of life is the spirit world’s gain. On the other side of the veil of consciousness each death in our world is always a happy event, because one of us is reborn into the full awareness of their true reality and is therefore coming home. We are eternal beings of light. There is no death and we cannot die. It’s just that from time to time we have to gather our experiences, so that we may learn from them and grow, on different levels of life – that’s all.

    Do Not Fear The Unknown

    [​IMG]
    The essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides from ‘A Time to Remember’ in Stella Polaris Oct/Nov 2008: ‘Do not be afraid of the future and the unknown. You do not need to fear the moment of your physical body’s death, because it is nothing but a step forward that returns you into our world, your true home, and enters you into its greater freedom and a fuller existence. Your physical body has been your vehicle for one lifetime. Each time you leave it behind you move from life in physicality into our world of light.

    ‘Without consciously being aware of it in your present existence, this is a road you have travelled many times before. And on every occasion the only thing you were allowed to take with you was whatever light, in the form of wisdom and understanding, you have gained up to then from the experiences of every one of your lifetimes. Every bit of it is stored in the memories of your soul. From there it emanates constantly, helping or hindering your present pathway. Each time you reach the spirit world, the beauty and wonders of this realm and its life reveals itself anew.’

    Death Where Is Thy Sting?

    [​IMG]
    Many are aware by now that we are eternal beings who cannot die and that therefore there truly is no death. Yet, to say: ‘Death is nothing!’ would belittle its significance. What is perceived by earthlings as death, when someone departs from this plane, is but a transformation and initiation into a different state of life, which every soul has to undergo at the end of each lifetime. I believe that eventually everybody will reach the level of awareness where they can accept that this is so. That’s how we shall save ourselves and our world a great deal of suffering and pain. You don’t have to take my word for it that this is true. How about trying the following for yourself?

    Find a quiet space where you can be sure that no-one will disturb you for a reasonable length of time. The best and safest way of doing this is by first asking your Guardian Angel to stand by you, to guide and protect you and show you how to go about it. Then make yourself as comfortable as you can, light a candle, look into its flame, centre yourself by listening to the sound of your breathing until your whole being has become still. When you feel good and ready, imagine that your loved one is drawing close and wishes to communicate with you. Focus on your heart centre and listen to the words and feelings that may come from there.

    Protected by your Guardian Angel, you rest securely in the knowledge that they will not represent messages from some ‘other world out there somewhere’ but that they really are from your own heart, where your loved now dwells. Slowly start reading from the following paragraph. Don’t think about the words or evaluate them, but focus your attention on the world of your feelings and the responses of your heart, for they are your inner guidance. This is what your loved one wishes to tell you:

    ‘I have not gone from you. I have merely slipped onto a different level of life. It’s very much like going into another room because all you do is withdraw from the outer plane of life and slip into its inner level, the spirit world. That’s where all human beings go when they leave their physical bodies behind. The spirit world is not a place ‘up there’ somewhere. It is an integral part of earthly life and on its innermost level dwells the Universal intelligence known as God. This is the source and wellspring of all life, from which we all once emerged and to which each one of us in the fullness of time will return. Every step on our evolutionary journey takes us closer to this goal.

    ‘Although I no longer dwell on the earthly plane, I am still myself and you are you. We always shall be. And because the essence of our being is eternal and immortal, it is impossible for us to die. I assure you I have not died. If anything, I am more alive now than I ever was before because I am once more fully aware of the most important part of me, my spirit and soul. You will find the same when you join me, one of these days. As far as I am concerned, whatever we have ever been to each other, that’s what we still are.

    ‘There is no need for our love to die because of my departure. The infinite wisdom of the Divine has provided that, on the contrary, through the experience of death human love grows stronger, deeper and purer, if the souls involved so wish. To help this along, I ask you to call me by my old familiar names. Let them be the well-known words they always were and say them without effort. Speak to me the easy way you used to do and let there be no difference in the sound of your voice. And don’t put on a forced air of solemnity or sorrow, but enjoy the jokes that made us laugh and express your amusement the way we always did together. Play with me and smile at me. Think of me and pray for me the way you always did. Never doubt for a moment that I can hear you, that I feel your love and that I shall always be with you, wherever you may have to go.

    ‘Life is eternal and the human spirit is immortal. Life is an absolute and unbroken continuity and in truth there is no death. On the inner level all is one and there you have always been as much part of me as I am of you. Nothing needs to change between you and me, just because I have gone through the great transformation ahead of you. Our relationship can remain the same it always was and between you and me life can continue to be everything it ever meant to us, if that’s what we both wish and I most certainly do.

    ‘My departure from the physical plane was no accident. It was meant to happen exactly when it did. For your sake – not mine – make an effort to accept this, the way I have done. And don’t believe anyone who tries to tell you that because I am out of your sight, I should also be out of your mind. That can only happen, if you want it to be that way. But if you still yearn for me, the way I long for you, the death of my physical body will offer many opportunities for coming closer to each other than it was ever possible before. I shall be alive in your heart, for as long as you want me to be there. That’s where you can find me and be with me, whenever you want to.

    ‘Thought is the most powerful force in the whole of Creation and I shall never be further away from you than a thought. This is how you can get in touch with me whenever you want. It’s as simple as that. I shall always listen when you need me and when you call me, and I will do my best to help and guide you. But in spite of all that, never forget that you and I now each have different lessons to attend to – you in the material world, and I in the world of light.

    ‘Therefore, let’s make sure that we give each other the necessary space and time, so that when we do meet we can come closer to each other than we ever did before for the sharing of precious moments, just like we used to do. Because all life rests safely in God’s loving hands, including yours and mine, all is well and that will not change. God and the Angels are constantly with you and me. And I forever will be I and you in all Eternity shall remain you. And I shall never forget you and stop loving you.’

    The lower earthly mind is the only thing that separates us in this world from that of the spirit, our true home. But as soon as we approach it with nothing but love and gratitude in our hearts for the support our spirit helpers have always been giving us, our own clairvoyance and clairaudience begins to develop. Feeling the need to humbly stand or kneel before humankind’s spirit friends to receive the gift of the knowledge they are bringing on behalf of all humankind, signals our readiness to serve them and unselfishly act as one of their channels, so it can be brought to all who are in need of it in earthly life. It then does not take long until we realise that none of us ever stops being at one with the spirit world and all who are dwelling there now, not merely our loved ones.

    The essence of a teaching from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in ‘The Way to the Age of Spirit – The Lightbringer’: ‘We are telling you that there really is no death. When you have passed what in the early stages of your earthly education appears to be a great barrier, you will be able to confirm this. At first you will probably think to yourself: ‘Am I dead? I did not feel anything and I haven’t changed one bit.’ There really is no difference because all you have done is leave your physical body behind. You took it off like a garment that has outlived its usefulness, do you are no longer interested in it. That is all physical death means because you are an eternal being of light and the way you are today you will be tomorrow. The more you consciously create yourself and build atoms of light into your whole being, the more you will be able to enjoy the fruits the Great Father/Mother has prepared for you to discover on the higher and highest levels of life.’

    You And Your Loved Ones At Christmas

    [​IMG]

    ‘When you entered earthly life you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Your turn for smiling comes when you depart from your present existence and the ones around you, who do not appreciate what is really happening to you, are crying and have to wait until their time for a better understanding of the processes of life has come. May your spiritual awareness help you to live your life to the fullest. Isn’t it sad that to this day so many think that life finishes with the death of their physical body, when in truth there is no death and life is eternal and constantly moving forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral?

    ‘Your loved ones are not dead and they have not gone from you. In spirit there is no separation. Contact with your loved one is always waiting for you through the power of thought and meditation. You have to develop within yourself the consciousness of the eternity of life. Know that God is love and has nothing but love for you, so love God with the might of your whole being. In the Divine consciousness there is no death. Your loved ones are living in that love and are part of your spirit. On a higher dimension of life your loved ones are always with you.

    ‘During the Christmas period human hearts tend to yearn and ache even more than at other times for some kind of contact with their loved ones in the world of light. Whenever such feelings threaten to overwhelm you, take comfort from knowing that all they have done is leave the darkness of earthly life behind. They are not dead but alive and well in the world of light where death does not exist. Take advantage that during the Christmas period the power of the Christ energies are felt much more strongly on the Earth plane than at any other time. This brings your loved ones closer than usual and the Christ love enables them to bring the gift of their love to your heart.

    ‘And now, in your imagination picture a temple that has been constructed of the healing rays of the Universal Christ. In its centre stands a huge Christmas tree that is aglow with millions of lights. This evergreen tree is a symbol of God’s unshakeable and eternal love. You can seek the shelter of this love to meet with your loved ones and friends who have passed into the spirit world before you, not merely at Christmas but always.

    ‘During your prayers and meditations in the Christmas period, when you focus your thoughts and the feelings of your innermost heart upon the beauty and power of the Christ Star on the Highest levels of life, you may sense the presence of the Angels around the throne of God. Listen to their message the way the shepherds of the Jesus legend did on the hills of Bethlehem, a long time ago. Imagine you can hear the Angels singing: ‘Love is born and comes to the Earth at Christmas.’

    ...I will hopefully go to heaven and meet my grandma I missed seeing by a year before I was born.

    Other than that I could go into nothing land and feel or see nothing.

    I don't want to die but any one of the above I will be happy with.

    The Best Is Yet To Come

    [​IMG]
    There probably isn’t anyone on the Earth plane who does not agree that we are living in exceptionally difficult times. Yet, they are also exciting and important beyond compare. This is due to the fact that ever more of us are waking up to their true nature and becoming aware that all of us are constantly in the process of laying the foundation stones for the rest of our present lifetime, as well as all futures ones. Whether they will be spent on the Earth plane or on other levels of existence, it is my firm belief that, individually and as a race, by far the best part of our evolution is yet to come.

    For those who fail to make an effort at finding the true purpose of their existence on the Earth plane, it may well be necessary to return to it in a future life and doing the whole thing all over again. That’s why suicide is never an option when the going gets tough. I do not want to come back yet again, not if I can help it, do you? I would really rather try to get everything as right as I possibly can, this time round.

    But why are we here in the first place? The way I understand the matter is that we have been placed in this life to achieve the wholeness and perfection that is in God. We consist of the same polarities and dualities that are in God and our task as healers and lightbringers is to balance them with each other, to achieve the perfect equilibrium of the Divine. Most of us are probably still a long way from this goal, in which case there is nothing for it but to keep on accepting and loving ourselves, in spite of the fact that we are mere human beings with all their shortcomings and character flaws. But there is also another far more important aspect of our nature and that is our spirit and soul. They are of Divine origin and immortal and for ever more of us the time has come to get in touch with them and learn to live in peace and harmony with them.

    I can think of no better tool than astrology to assist us with gaining a deeper understanding first of ourselves and our own predestined pathway through life, and then of those around us. Studying every one of my interpretations of the Sun signs is a good starting point. Getting to know the positive and negative qualities and expressions of our own sign and then of all the others in my view is a unique and special way of learning to love, appreciate and respect ourselves as the precious and unique beings we truly are. Only from this love and with an ever deepening understanding of life’s purpose and meaning in general can grow a genuine respect and appreciation for everybody and everything that shares our world with us.

    The energies are now right for doing this and many friends and helpers who are invisible to earthly eyes are reaching out for us in these difficult times. All we have to do is attune the receiver/transmitter station of our earthly mind into the frequencies of higher and highest levels of life where they are dwelling and for a long time have been waiting for our call. When we willingly work hand in hand with them and bring forth the best that is in us to unselfishly serve them, we can act as their channels through which the blessing and healing energies of the Highest can flow into our world.

    If we don’t know how to go about this, we need to ask them to show us how to gain more confidence, drive and initiative and a proper appreciation of ourselves as a valuable member of the human race. To enable us to tap into and bring forth our inner resources, it is essential to develop our intuition, our inner teacher. This is best done through meditations, prayers and quiet reflections and by listening within, so that the living God within can communicate with us in full consciousness. All the knowledge in the Universe is within us. No outside influences are involved in this, everything comes from deep inside our own being. Trying it out to see for ourselves how it works, we stand everything to gain and nothing to lose.

    And because the law of life is love and evolution, every lifeform is constantly moving forwards and upwards on an evolutionary spiral. That’s why it is quite justified – and by no means foolishly optimistic and unfounded – to expect that with the passing of time earthly life too will get better and easier to cope with. Through developing more positive and constructive thinking and behaviour patterns, each one of us is required to do their share of bringing healing and peace to us and our world.

    Beautiful Things

    Knowing that beautiful things are right and true,
    And that beautiful actions please God,
    Helps wise ones to develop their inward sense of
    What is right, true and beautiful.

    The highest wisdom is to trust
    One’s intuition and following its guidance,
    For the answer to the last appeal of what is right or wrong
    Lies within everybody’s own heart.
    So, trust thyself.

    Aristotle 384-322 BC

    No Regrets

    [​IMG]

    Even if earthly lifetimes last one hundred years,
    They’re too short for spending them regretting things,
    So love the people who treat you right
    And leave behind the ones who don’t.
    Never forget that everything in this life
    Is of a temporary nature and
    Never more than a passing phase.

    Everything that happens is only there
    For teaching us some kind of a lesson and
    Whenever life offers us a second chance,
    Let’s grab it with both hands and
    Do our best to create something of value from it.

    Nobody promised Earth life would be easy.
    But when in future something changes
    Our life profoundly,
    Let’s go with the flow and allow things to happen,
    Resting safely in the knowledge that,
    As long as we grow and learn something
    From every one of them,
    Our earthly stay will not have been
    A wasted one.

    Through gaining a fresh understanding and perception of the processes of life, I hope you will be able to find out for yourself that there really is nothing to be afraid of in the realm of the spirit. For a long time something like a veil, known as the veil of consciousness, has been hiding that world from us. But this is rapidly disappearing with the help of new spiritual knowledge that for quite some time has been flowing ever more freely into our world. A good example of this is a message from the White Eagle group of spirit guides that appeared in the Lodge’s Calendar November 2006. The following is its essence:

    ‘Only a thin veil divides you from those who have passed into our world. These people are by no means dead. They are very much alive and no different from the way they were when you knew them in earthly life. The main difference between then and now, for them, is that they no longer need a physical body for getting around and that they are much happier without it.

    ‘Think of your loved ones in a world where peace, love and happiness rule supreme. Without being consciously aware of it, this is the state every one of you in earthly life for a long time seeks in vain. But eventually you need to learn how to, at least occasionally in prayers, meditations and quiet reflection, detach yourself from the toil and strife of your physical existence. All of you have to learn how to find a degree of happiness and peace with your Highest or God Self. This is particularly easy whilst listening to music that soothes and calms your whole being and when with your mind’s eye you are perceiving the golden world of God.’

    ‘Life is eternal and the human spirit is part of God and therefore immortal. In truth, there is no death because life consists of absolute and unbroken continuity. On its inner level all is one, and you are as much part of me as I am of you. Nothing needs to change between you and me, just because I have gone through the great transformation before you. If we both so wish, our relationship can remain the same it always was between you and me, and life continues to be everything it has meant to us. My departure from the physical plane was no accident; it was meant to happen exactly when it did. For your sake – not mine – make an effort to accept this, the way I have done. And don’t believe anyone who tries to tell you that because I am out of your sight, I should also be out of your mind. That can only happen, if you so wish. But if you still want me, the death of my physical body is going to present us with many opportunities for coming closer to each other than it was ever possible, when we both still dwelled in physicality.'

    From ‘Death – Where Is Thy Sting?’

    With all my heart and soul I believe that there is a great plan of life in which everybody has their place. And with my whole being I trust that this plan is perfect, and that our Creator, the Great Father/Mother of all life holds both our worlds – as well as all other worlds – safely in His/Her loving hands. More than that: I know these things and that is a faith and a trust that no-one will ever be able to shake or take from me, for the simple reason that it is not based on something that is written in a book somewhere, but deeply engraved in my heart and soul.

    When I reflect on the mysteries of life and death and the Universe as a whole, I become aware how all things work together for the good of the whole, and I realise that everything that happens anywhere in the whole of Creation has been planned and is held in the mind of the Great Architect and Master Designer of all worlds and all beings. The knowledge of this helps me to open my heart, soul and mind with confidence to the One, who holds the plan and takes care that it unfolds as it should and that therefore all life is moving forwards and upwards on the evolutionary spiral of life in a well ordered fashion.

    This helps me to walk with a tranquil heart and an open mind to the beauty, the wonders and the glories of all the Universes that cannot be seen by earthly eyes, but only perceived by our minds. Knowing that God is in other people just the same as in me, makes it easy to be sincere and true in all my relationships. And I rejoice that truly, truly there is no death and that wherever there is love between human souls there can be no separation.

    The Weaver

    [​IMG]

    My life is but a weaving
    Between my Creator and me.
    I cannot choose the colours,
    As S/He worketh steadily.

    Oft-times S/He weaveth sorrow,
    And I, in foolish pride,
    Forget S/He sees the upper
    And I the underside.

    Not till the loom is silent
    And the shuttles cease to fly,
    Shall God unroll the canvas
    And explain the reasons why

    The dark threads are as needful
    In the Weaver’s skilful hand,
    As the threads of gold and silver
    In the pattern S/He has planned.

    S/He knows and loves and cares –
    Nothing this truth can dim,
    And S/He gives the best to those
    Who leave the choice to Her/Him.

    Fear

    [​IMG]

    What do we have to fear? Nothing!
    Whom do we have to fear? No-one!
    Do you know why?
    Consciously becoming one again with our Highest Self,
    Gives us three great privileges:
    Omnipotence and practising it safely in the knowledge
    That true Power is with God alone,
    And that this God, the living God within, will always
    Show us where and how to do so.
    This makes us feel intoxicated without needing any wine.
    And because we have come home into the awareness
    That we are eternal beings of light and immortal,
    There no longer is any death for us,
    Merely transformations
    From one life-state into another.

    St. Francis of Assisi
