We’re earthbound, stuck in our limited ways of looking at life, as if this were all it could be. Or as if we’ll all be floating on clouds or burning in hell. Or as if any one “religion” has a lock on heaven.
We are ONE.
That’s right. We’re all part of each other and part of the Divine, Father/Mother God, the Source of all things.
There is no after and no before because life is unending. But eternity is not how we envision it. It’s sort of like it is here. But not exactly.
I know for sure that if we all understood this, we’d look at death as simply a temporary parting. Just for a while. In the greater scheme of things, not very long at all.
And we’d release the spirits of our loved ones to fly free because we know that they are in us and we are in them.
It’s so simple. And yet, we make it so complicated.
We hang on to the stories, fables, allegories and parables meant as simply lessons as if they were literal.
There is no hell after this. Unbaptized babies are not damned. Being “saved” makes no difference. Religion is unimportant.
We are not victims of circumstance. We are the originators of our lives. Life happens from us, not to us.
What makes a difference is what we do while we are here. Here in Soul School.
And faith is helpful, but not necessary.
This is not much of a comfort to a parent who wants their baby here with them. Or to a spouse missing their other half. Or to anyone else who grieves. And it is an impossible “sell” to those who hang on to their religion with a death grip.
But that doesn’t make it any less so.
