"Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions." Ecclesiastes 7: 29Last night during a sleeping dream, I heard someone calling out my name. The voice was so loud that it pierced through the dream and I opened my eyes. Obviously there was no one there, at least no one that I could perceive with my senses.
In another sleeping dream this morning around 7.30 am, I heard the same voice, louder than the first time, calling out my name. When I opened my eyes I could sense a presence in the room.
I've had experiences like these before. Each time they've happened, I've heard of someone in the family passing away. It's as if it's their way of saying "goodbye."
I don't particular like having these experiences as they go against the grain of what I believe to be true.
I believe God/Infinite Love/Spirit/the One is all there is.
Since God is all and in all and God is eternal life, what is death but a dream?
In the human experience when a loved one dies, it does feel like they've gone because you can no longer experience them the way you used to. What kind of God would play such a cruel trick on people? The Love I believe in would never create a system whereby people who love and care about each other have to go through "loss" even if they never leave.
The Love I believe in keeps people who truly love each other together. It doesn't mean we are tied together at the hips for all time. Our loved ones have the freedom to express who they are infinite ways. If this means going separate ways, they still remain very much joined with their loved ones until they are reunited. It's rather like when our loved ones emigrate to another country, yet you can still keep in contact by phone, email or telepathy, if they're open to it.
There are those who would argue that when someone passes away, they're in constant contact with their loved ones. In that case, how come most people can't "hear" them or feel their presence? Only those who are "sensitive" can pick up on the deceased. That's not love, that's torture!
The Love I believe in would never allow people to suffer diseases and old age. Love is not only incorruptible, HE is beauty, harmony, and perfection.
There are those who would argue that people suffer diseases so they can learn from them and even grow. Love doesn't need to experience suffering to grow nor does Love know anything about suffering. I believe time is simply a tool Love uses to explore the infinite facets of love.
The Love I believe in would never let people die? How is that possible anyway when Love has no beginning or end?
There are those who would argue that death is not the end but a new beginning for people to move on to other experiences. Surely omnipotent Love can move people on from different experiences without needing to go through death and decay.
So please, whoever you are trying to make contact with me, I would rather not play silly buggers. I prefer to play the game of Love that never dies. So if you have something to say to me, say it to my face.
Love is my life and Love never dies.
