Do you remember what it’s like to look into your child’s eyes for the first time? I do…”Hey, there you are, I know you, where have you been?”. That’s your soul remembering this other soul. Then life goes on like they’ve always been there, because they have! Remember the Beatles song, “All You Need Is Love”? Of course you do, and it’s true! Life is all about love, and lessons.
Open your mind for a moment and imagine a triangle. “God” is at the top, of course. He or She emanates pure love, which is something we all yearn for. Then there are different layers, where our spirits exist. The higher levels of this triangle hold the most evolved souls, and they feel the highest force of God’s love. They can go down to visit others, but lower level souls are not allowed “up”. These higher level souls have gone through many lifetimes and learned the most lessons of love. The lower level souls feel some of God’s love, but they still feel all the “bad” emotions like hatred, loneliness, jealousy, greed, hopelessness, fright, etc. This is hell.
Different people are in our life for a reason. We love and learn from them. In the spirit world, we hang out with these same spirits. We also wait for and greet the ones left behind when they enter the after life. When every soul in this spirit circle is back together, and it’s time, and we all agree, we start again as different people. So be nice to your sister in this life, because she may evolve as your Mother or child in the next and make your life hell. LOL!
And speaking of hell. I grew up in and still identify with the Catholic faith. We were taught that hell held a devil and was made of fire and we were chained up and whipped, etc. Well, first of all, our souls are not a physical form so we can’t be chained up or whipped. Our souls are made up of intelligent, feeling energy. The hell that a lot of us identify with is actually the spirits who are on the lower levels of the triangle and can’t feel as much of God’s love. Why are these souls on a lower level? They acted without love when they were in the physical form. They will eventually start again and, hopefully, become a more evolved, spiritual soul.
If we have evolved to a high enough level, we may stay in the triangle and work with God to teach others how to love each other and progress spiritually. These spirits are now “angels”, but others may call them saint, deity, martyr, pietist, patron, sacred, etc…
Here’s something I saw on Facebook. I’m not sure who wrote it, but it’s a really good explanation of all this: “Dear humans, you’ve got it all wrong. You didn’t come here to master unconditional love, that is where you came from and where you will return. You came here to learn personal love, unconditional love, messy love, sweaty love, crazy love, broken love, whole love. Infused with divinity, lived through the grace of stumbling, demonstrated through the beauty of….messing up. Often. You didn’t come here to be perfect, you already are. You came here to be gorgeously human, flawed and fabulous. And then to rise again, into remembering.”
Here’s another: “Death is nothing at all, it does not count. I have only slipped away into the next room. Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were together, that we are still. Call me by the old familiar name. Speak of me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference into your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be always the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without an effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is this death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner. All is well.”
All is well.
