As in life, in death

I always like to bring meaning to my writing, by finding explanations about different things in life. Sadly, when we talk about death it strikes the fear of god into us and into our hearts.

As a child I found the concept of death scary because nothing was ever explained and I was hidden from it, but as my spiritual beliefs began to blossom, understanding death didn’t seem so scary. That death is merely a continuation of a soul that has lived that continues to live in spirit.

But we must contemplate its true implications to understand what it means when we pass over. When we understand the soul and how death works, we will know what it means to understand life.

We have a physical body that is vitalised by the soul. When we die, the body separates from the soul and the soul continues to live on without the physical constraints of the body.

On this side of life as we continue to live our lives, our true character lies in the soul, and is the reason why it’s important we live and practice empathy, compassion, tolerance and basic selflessness, so those attributes will continue through the soul once we’ve passed over.

As long as we practice goodness and selflessness, it is logical to assume that upon death, we will ascend to a higher state after fulfilling our responsibilities this side of life. No substance truly disappears, it only changes form.

The spiritual life force that we’re all connected to, upon death changes from one form to another, when the body separates from the soul and the soul continues into the after world.

For those who transform their body into a vehicle for generosity, who nurture their soul, will continue to do so the other side of life. The soul is the vehicle towards a better life in the after world, therefore the imprint of the soul counts this side of life.

  1. Death hasn’t really scared me, seeing as I had a near death experience at 3 years old, after almost dying from pneumonia and had a glimpse of what comes next which I didn’t want to come back from.

    It’s pretty sad when a 3 year old would rather choose death than come back to a life that was already a nightmare. Part of me already knew what my life was going to end up being like, but the impression was that it wasn’t my time, so I woke up in the hospital.

    There were a lot of life skills that I never learned, so my life has really been a nightmare, mostly because I didn’t feel like it was okay to fight for anything, especially myself, so I have allowed a lot of things to happen that never should have and have had to suffer the consequences.

    Now, for the first times in my life, I have fought to do the right thing, like get past one of my biggest issues and rescue my daughter from the hell that she was trapped in 2500 miles away. She still believed in me and finally asked for help, so I knew what I had to do, even though it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do.

    I didn’t fight for her sake so long ago, but never expected her mother to do what she has done, and I will have to live with that mistake. All I know is that I have to be there for her now, as a dad should be and try to make amends for not doing what I should have when she was younger.

    It has taken me a very long time to learn that it’s okay for me to take care of myself first, otherwise I can’t be there for anyone else, like for my daughter. I just want to be a decent human being and hopefully have the chance to go back to that ‘happy place’ when I die.

    1. Thanks Randy. You must have been observant if you understood your life from the age of three. Not everyone gets to that stage.

      I’m not sure how old I was when I began to understand the fundamentals of ‘the soul’ and how life is supposed to work. But once I understood, life began to change for the better.

      I believe that when we understand, we can begin to change the way we see ourselves and others. Our perceptions on how we deal with things and people should also change as a result.

      Things like empathy, tolerance and selflessness are all part of our ‘soul work’ and it is those attributes that will help us through, when it’s our time to return to spirit.

  2. I like your description of the cycle that its life and death. We are merely passing through this plane on our way to the next.

    We all need to understand that what matters is how we are this side of life.

    1. Thank you. Your last paragraph sums up your response and you’re absolutely right, it does matter how we are this side of life.

      I think if more of us did, we’d not only be happier in ourselves, but we’d also be happier with each other.

  3. Our souls survive our bodily death. That’s why it’s so important to nurture our souls while we’re here. I live every day knowing that.

    I also know that much of what we’ve learned and subsequently believe came from our backward religions we embrace; which I think is the weakest response to the mysteries of life and death.

    1. Thanks Tim. Our souls do and is the reason we must nurture our souls while we’re here. But sadly, our soul is the last we think about.

      Although religion has become important, we tend to lose or not think about the bigger picture of why we’re here. Everything tends to be based around religion.

      If we gave more purpose to our lives, we would think and behave differently and that would help the soul when it transitions. But it’s too late then.
