Fear Not!

Fear itself is not the impediment to your joyful life. But, fear is pointing at the impediment to your joyful life. And just as the feeling of fear is within you, the impediment is within you also.

 

Abraham Hicks

 

Fear is a tricky word.  It can be an impediment just as it can be a blessing.  Fear can hold you back or if you choose it can also move you forward.  What are you afraid of?

Failure?

Fear

There is no failure.  There are only lessons to learn.  
Even death isn’t a failure.  Because there is no death.  There is only transition.

You leave on state, the physical and transition to the spiritual, to the ethereal.  And even that state is temporary until we become living flesh again.  The failures we THINK we’ve seen are only lessons to learn in our next incarnation.  There is no reason to fear…

….ANYTHING!

 

Sometimes, as the image above suggests, you have to trust but IF you stray off the “trust” path, you may be fearful at first, however you may just find a new path and discover something about yourself you didn’t know.  Fear can hold you back but it can also move you forward if you release it and step out of your comfort zone.

 

And remember:
There is nothing to fear.
There is no failure.  Only challenges and lessons to learn.

 

Fear is a word that you can dismiss from your lexicon if you’re strong enough.

 

Remember, fear only rears it ugly head when we look too far into the future, when we forecast, when we start to think what happens tomorrow, next week, next year.  How do we stay joyful?  By staying in the present moment.  Nothing bad can happen in the present moment.

 

Stop forecasting!
Stop focusing on the future!

 

Finding it challenging to stay in the present moment?  When I have trouble doing that I meditate.  

–Meditating is an excellent way to get centered and stay centered.
–Meditating can knock the fear out of you, can knock it to kingdom come, can knock it out of the ballpark.  Fear is just a word.  You can knock that word of your lexicon.

 

Fear not!

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end

When is it the End?

Uh oh.  Today’s column will probably stir up some controversy.  What you decide is ENTIRELY up to you.  I certainly won’t judge anyone by the decisions they make.  And as I wrote here, this is NOT an easy choice to make.  There comes a time when enough IS enough.  It’s up to each of us to make that decision when we’ve reached that point.  The trick is knowing when that point has come.  Too soon and you’ll always be thinking:
What if?

 

Too late and you’ll be cursing yourself for letting a loved one stay too long.

 

One of Scranton Memorial Library’s frequent patrons, (let’s call her Rita) came into the library a few weeks ago. I don’t recall how we began this discussion but we started talking about what happens if someone is incapacitated in a nursing home or a hospital and wants to end their lives.

You do of course understand that we sign a contract when we incarnate?  Who are we to break a contract? And what happens when we break one?  You know what I THINK happens when we take our own lives even IF we are suffering?  

 

When someone takes their own life it is a one way ticket back to the physical.  As I’ve written at Wisdom and Life on numerous occasions, when someone dies by their own hand, I believe they don’t see Transition Tunnel, they don’t meet those in their soul group.  This is not a punishment.  Everything that happens in our lives is a tool to teach us.

 

Life is sacred and we shouldn’t decide when to end it.  Even as I’m writing this, I’m conflicted.  On the one hand, EVERYTHING in my soul says that we can NOT and should NOT do what God has decreed, what we have decreed when we choose our lives.  We choose not only our lives, but the challenges we will face in each incarnation.  When we become physical we forget the time we spent in Transition Hall.  If, as I believe we choose the challenges we will face and the way we will transition out of each life how can we break that contract?

 

Uh ha!

You may say.  What if we chose taking our life?  I suppose that’s possible, however I would like to think someone with greater power than ourselves would do their best to dissuade us.  We shouldn’t have that power.  Life is a gift and we shouldn’t return it.  I certainly understand the situation one can find themselves in if they are in a place where there seems to be no way out, where there seems to be no way to get better.  In the end the choice is ours.  No one wants to be on life support letting a machine keep us alive.  However, miracles DO happen.

 

I do believe we shouldn’t mess with our transition date.  I believe that date is carved in stone and to change it arbitrarily, because we are in emotional or physical pain will only cause us to repeat the same pain at exactly the same point in our lives until we learn to move beyond it.  Whether you believe that is entirely up to you. What you choose to believe is entirely up to you.

 

Everything comes down to a choice and what you decide to do with it.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Garry Shandling

In 1977, when he was 27, Shandling was in a serious car accident in Beverly Hills that nearly killed him.

 

“I had a vivid near-death experience that involved a voice asking, ‘Do you want to continue leading Garry Shandling’s life?'” he later wrote. “Without thinking, I said, ‘Yes.’ Since then, I’ve been stuck living in the physical world while knowing, without a doubt, that there’s something much more meaningful within it all. That realization is what drives my life and work.”

From that moment on, Shandling decided to concentrate on stand-up comedy, finding the constraints of traditional sitcom writing limiting.

Too many celebrities have transitioned this year.  Now Garry Shandling.  I copied the above quote in bold because Mr Shandling seems to have the same worldview as I do when it comes to transitioning.  Interesting that Shandling had an N.D.E. and returned.  It seems that he experienced the same thing that MOST people who have Near Death Experiences have.  Shandling was asked if he wanted to continue leading Garry Shandling’s life.

 

I hadn’t thought about this until I copied that passage here.  Here’s what I’m thinking now:

Shandling was asked if he wanted to continue leading Garry Shandling’s life.

What was the other choice?  To transition to a new life?  See?  What I take away from that question is this:
Why would Mr Shandling recall the question phrased in that way, in the third person?  To continue leading Garry Shandling’s life?  What other life did he have the option for?  Unless we choose to believe as I do that we do indeed return over and over, reincarnate, in other words.

What other explanation is there for the question being recalled in the way that it was?  I choose to see the question this way:
Do you want to continue leading Garry Shandling’s life, or does your SOUL want to find another life in transition hall?
It is then that we are brought to Transition Hall.  Here is where we choose our next life.  That next life will be a result of how we performed in our previous life.

 

My worldview, my thought processes concerning transition runs toward the eclectic, towards the esoteric.  It’s who I am.  It’s what I believe.  That doesn’t mean I don’t believe in God, in Jesus.  I do.  I’ve managed to adjust my paradigm to fit into Christian thought.

 

Garry will be back as will all the souls who have transitioned this year.  It’s distressing for those they leave behind.  For them though, they are home.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Performing Their Last Words

Wisdom and Life took an extended break from blogging over the Christmas Holiday.  I’m back now and will be publishing again EVERY Monday.

 

In January we lost several essential artists to those of us who grew up in early 1970s and through today:

First David Bowie Then Alan Rickman, Glenn Frey and to another degree:
Dale Griffin, Mott the Hoople drummer.

 

All images from:
Wikipedia
Artists

Those are four preeminent voices in the entertainment industry.  Of the four artists here I imagine the least well known is Mott The Hoople.  For those unaware of the name I’m sure this song will resonate:
All the Young Dudes

 

As I said in a previous column Passing in Pairs, I often wonder whether people pass together because they are needed elsewhere.  Can you just imagine, Bowie and Dale Griffin together again.  Perhaps they are reminiscing about their collaboration on All The Young Dudes  

 

Why do you suppose these four artists made the decision to pass within the same month?  If you believe as I do that we sign a contract that gives us a birthday as well as our transition day then you’d have to agree that these artists KNEW the impact they would have and what a loss we’d feel when they transitioned.  Of course as SOON as they became flesh all knowledge of that contract was lost to them as well as the knowledge that they would one day become superstars.  We forget for a VERY specific reason.  For if we know our future there would be no need to do our best to succeed.  What fun would that be?

 

I wonder if Alan Rickman and Glenn Frey knew each other as Bowie and Mott The Hoople did.  Did Frey and Rickman ever travel in the same circles?  You know I’m always looking for connections at Wisdom and Life.   I even forgot about the connection with Bowie’s All The Young Dudes to Mott The Hoople.  There’s another connection right there.

 

You know that Bowie and Griffin are playing that song together even as you read this.  Speaking of David Bowie.  Even when he knew he was about to transition, he left his fans a HUGE gift in his finest work.  I say it’s his finest work, because he knew his time was short yet he continued to press forward.  With Lazarus, David Bowie lets us into his world one more time before he passes.  I say it’s his finest work because it is likely his most personal as well.

 

Being directly in line with a belief in reincarnation and past lives, I’m fascinated that Bowie chose Lazarus as the title for this video/song.  Do you suppose he also believed we all come back?  We know that Tina Turner has that belief and we also know that Tina and Bowie were close.

 

As those of us who grew up in the late 1960s and early 1970s watch our contemporary artists age and transition it is natural for us to question our own mortality.  All I can say is:
There is no reason to fear death because death is a myth!

There is no death.
There is only transition.
We all come back.
and we all return in soul groups.

 

Bowie, Glenn Frey, Alan Rickman, Dale Griffin

Robin Williams Wayne Dyer and so many others who will be remembered.  These people should NOT be mourned.  They were celebrated in life.  They should be celebrated in transition.  Several years ago there was a series on television called:
I Survived… Beyond and Back

In one episode I watched:
there is one story of a man who crashed his motorcycle.  In the recounting of his story, he said that now when he hears that someone has passed over, he thinks, Lucky Bastard, you’re going home.

 

That I believe is how we should celebrate transition.  Our lives here are short.  However they are also numerous.  These artists?  They will be back.  Maybe their next incarnation will be a different life but they will always have music, writing or acting be a part of themselves.  Don’t despair the loss.

 

Celebrate the life that was:
Listen to David Bowie.
Listen to Mott The Hoople
Listen to Glenn Frey.

 

Read Wayne Dyer.
Watch Alan Rickman
Watch Robin Williams.

 

And MOST important of all:
Tell those close to you that you love them.

Don’t just tell them.

Show them how much you love them.  Because our lives here are short and MOST of us don’t have the liberty of recalling our past lives with those we love.  Tell them now!

Show them NOW!

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

On Life After Death

Elizabeth Kubler-Ross has long been someone I admire.  Her work with terminally ill patients has always been commendable and she is best known for her five stages of dying.  In her book:
KublerRoss

Clicking the link below will bring to my Amazon account.  Should you decide to purchase if you do so, PLEASE purchase from Wisdom and Life.  I will benefit.

On Life After Death, Kubler Ross shows through four lectures she has given that death (transition) (a word I use in place of the word death and I’ve come to find out by reading On Life After Death, that Kubler Ross uses the same word) is not something to be fearful of, not something to run away from.  Transition should be welcomed just as birth is welcomed.  Transition is a natural part of life, something we all must face.  As I read this book I constantly saw words and subjects I have used for many years to describe my own feelings of Transition.  Kubler Ross in one paragraph of one of the lectures in this book describes death as taking off a winter coat.  I use that phrase myself as the title of a column here at Wisdom and Life and that phrase later became the working title of my own book on Transition.  For anyone with a terminally ill friend, or family member who doesn’t know how to react, doesn’t know the right thing to say or do, and wants comfort in the knowledge that we all survive this mortal coil, then I highly suggest finding this book and reading it.  

 

On Life After Death may give you hope, knowing that thousands and thousands of people who have had Near Death Experiences (NDE) all return with the same information:
–Hovering over your body, your shell.
–Seeing those who have passed before them.
–Traveling through a tunnel where a bright light welcomes them at the end.
–Feeling nothing but unconditional love while in this ethereal place.
–Not wanting to return, and feeling overwhelming distress when they DO return.

 

It doesn’t matter your race, your religion or your creed.  EVERYONE who has had an NDE reports all of these things.  

 

There REALLY is no death.  I’ve known that from day one.  It’s one of the reasons this blog exists and one of the reasons I’ve written my own book on Transitioning.  I think it is extremely important to spread the knowledge that death, that transition is not something to be feared.  Take off you spiritual blinders.

Wake up and see the world as it really is:
A place of spiritual energy, a place we all come to to work out our physical needs and challenges.  

 

This thing we call life is the only way we have of working through those challenges to bring us closer to the Divine, to the Light, to perfect harmony with Source, with God.

 

On Life After Death, like so many other books on this topic is another important cog in the wheel of this experience.  Don’t pass this book up.  You may just come away with some new insights.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Celebrities and Past Lives

Nietzsche says that we will live the same life, over and over again. God – I’ll have to sit through the Ice Capades again.

 

Attributed to Woody Allen

 

Whether we live the SAME life over and over is up for debate.  However, I AM convinced that we all come back.  Anyone who has been following Wisdom and Life from its inception should realize that is one of my steadfast beliefs.  I heard the above quote few weeks ago while working at the Scranton Library on a Thursday night and I promised I would use it in an upcoming column.  When I first heard the Ice Capades quote, I laughed so hard I lost my breath.

 

I can just see Woody Allen saying such a thing in his droll voice.  Woody Allen and Nietzsche aren’t the only celebrities who have mentioned Past Lives as part of their worldview.  I recently discovered that General Patton believed he’d been here before as well.  That shocked me beyond belief.  While working at the library one day a few weeks ago the movie Patton starring George C, Scott returned and I read the back flap.  The passage that caught my eye was:
Patton believed he was a warrior in past lives.

 

When I arrived home that evening, I researched the subject and sure enough, it proved to be true.  There are many others who believe we reincarnate.

 

I read a book over twenty years ago called: Walking after Midnight where Hollywood actors discussed their belief in past lives.  I seem to recall Martin Sheen believing in the concept.  Having “Hollywooders” believing and being vocal about it doesn’t really surprise me.  However, seeing someone like General Patton come out and discuss his position IS surprising.  I wouldn’t expect someone of his stature being daring enough to admit this belief; maybe because even though I have no problem discussing it, the concept of reincarnation, especially when Patton was living could have been seen as quite esoteric, not ft to be discussed openly.  I give General Patton credit for talking about this regardless of WHEN he discussed it.  I think the more of us that openly talk about esoteric topics such as reincarnation the less afraid others will be to discuss them as well.

 

Do you have any beliefs that you’ve been afraid to discuss?

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Which Books Are You?

Anyone who knows me in the LEAST, understands that reading is part of who I am.  It’s why the last two jobs I’ve had have been book centric.  RJ Julia Booksellers in Madison, Connecticut and The Scranton Library in Madison, Connecticut.   The funny thing is when I grew up, you couldn’t pay me to read.  Now you’d have to pay me NOT to read.

 

Alright.  With that established, let’s play a little reading game:
Before we begin let me just start out by saying that I’ve discussed these two books countless times before at Wisdom and Life.  However, as with all topics here it is always nice to circle back around.  Sometimes for new readers who haven’t been with me since this blog’s inception and sometimes it’s also good to get a repeat once in awhile.

 

If you had to choose two books that best described who you are. which two books would they be?  Which two books would you NOT want to be without?  Which two books have become so much a part of you are, that to take them away from you would be as if someone reached in and pulled out your very soul?  I’ll start:
My two books that I simply can’t be without are:
1.  What Dreams May Come: A Novel
WhatDreamsMayCome

Click on the link above to purchase the book and I will get a commission.

I read this book for the first time in the early 1990s and it entirely changed my whole perspective on life and death.  Few books have had such a life altering experience for me as this book did.  What Dreams May Come tells the story of Chris Nielsen who dies in a fiery car accident leaving his wife and children behind.  What comes next is the story of Chris doing everything is his limited power to comfort Annie, his wife, doing everything he can to show her that life moves even when one has transitioned.  What Dreams May Come was my introduction to the theory of Past Lives and reincarnation.  It’s why the book has become so important in my library.  And it is why I firmly believe as I stated in a Facebook post a couple weeks ago that it is one book that all of humanity should read.  It’s one book that needs to be required reading for every living human.  It could change everyone’s life if they let the ideas in the book permeate.

 

  1.  Love Wins: A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the Fate of Every Person Who Ever Lived
    Love Wins

You’ll be helping me by clicking on the link above to purchase this from Amazon.

This book is important to me as well because it introduced me to the fact that I am most likely a Universalist.  Whether or not Rob Bell is a Universalist is up for debate.  However, his book points to many claims that Universalists make.

 

Another reason I identify so strongly with this book is Bell’s claim that a loving God would not choose a select few people to save.  If God is all loving wouldn’t that entity want to save all of humanity?  That’s my reasoning too.  And it’s why this book is in my top two spiritual books to have and why I feel as I do with What Dreams May Come that all of humanity can benefit from reading it.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

A Response To Jason

Last week my friend, Jason Marchi left a comment on Passing in Pairs that made it obvious that the title and some of what I wrote was misinterpreted by him.  What I wanted to come across in the column was not that some people pass in pairs, That was ancillary.  I do sometimes wonder why people of social standing do pass within days of each other and I was curious what others thought as well.  And I still believe that sometimes it is because their souls are needed elsewhere to mediate a challenge.  However, I understand Jason’s confusion over the column and I understand his comment.  Not to create acrimony here, I will invoke one of my favorite quotes here to help justify my belief in this, though:
“To one who has faith, no explanation is necessary. To one without faith, no explanation is possible.”

 

In my worldview, there are things that are true that simply cannot be explained via conventional means.  Maybe this is one of them.  Events happen every day that have no explanation.  What if this was one of them?  As I said, I’m not trying to create conflict where there is none, just doing my best to show where my thought process goes when I see something happen that has no explanation.  Since I’ve discovered that Law of Attraction deepened my Faith, I’ve always looked for the meaning behind events that seem to defy a natural explanation; which is all I did with last week’s column.

 

I believe sometimes people may pass because they are needed elsewhere.  As I’ve said many times at Wisdom and Life, I believe our transition day is carved in stone.  However, as I wrote in Passing in Pairs, what if that stone is shale?  God may want to step in and make a change.  Perhaps your soul is needed to mediate a challenge and you’ve been an excellent mediator in the physical.  I’ve learned a long time ago, that as much as we may want something to happen in our lives only God can create what we want.  If there is something HE needs for us to do, he will create the circumstances for it to manifest.  That also means our transition may change according to his plans.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Passing In Pairs

 

–Princess Diana
August 31, 1997

–Mother Teresa
September 5, 1997
–Wayne Dyer
August 29, 2015

–Oliver Sacks
August 30, 2015

 

On Monday, September 14, a friend of mine mentioned Wayne Dyer’s passing.  She then brought up the fact that Oliver Sacks passed shortly after Wayne Dyer.  Sometimes my mind goes somewhere that many people don’t consider.  Look at the above list of names and when they passed.  Do you ever consider why people in the public eye sometimes tend to pass in pairs?  I do.  

 

Let’s look at Princess Diana and Mother Teresa:
When Mother Teresa passed and it was less than a week after Princess Diana, even back then BEFORE my spiritual nature expanded to the point where it is now, I had these thoughts.  Why did these two remarkable women transition so close to each other?  I often wonder if their souls weren’t needed elsewhere to mediate some disturbance in the force so to speak.  Afterall they were extremely influential in the physical, and since we are OUR souls, since we ARE spiritual beings having a physical experience why couldn’t we not have something to offer in another realm?

 

Okay!
I know what you’re thinking now.  You’re recalling my previous statements that our transition day is carved in stone, that it can’t be undone.  In most cases that is correct.  What if we chose to pass on that particular day because we KNEW we would be needed?

 

Or
what if there was ONE who could override ANY particular order we placed?  I’m sure you’ve the adage:
Rules were made to be broken.

 

What if this tenet that our transition day is carved in stone is still true, but that it is carved in shale?

 

How about Wayne Dyer and Oliver Sacks:
My thoughts IMMEDIATELY returned to Diana and Mother Teresa when Oliver Sacks passed a day after Wayne Dyer.  

 

–Again Sacks and Dyer were influential in life, both were writers and both were an inspiration to many.
–Again what if they were needed to mediate in another realm?

I’m sure you can find other cases where influential souls have passed in pairs.  These are just two instances that jumped out to me.  It’s where my thoughts go when these kinds of things happen.  How bout you?

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

My Worldview

This column has been a long time in the making.  I’ve discussed my worldview in the past here at Wisdom and Life and how I’ve come to understand God.  Uh oh, Chris used the “G” word.  When I use the word “God,” I’m not referring to any particular denominational God.  I’m commenting on the “Universal God,” the Divinity we ALL worship.  See?  I think God and Religion became wrapped up in a human perspective.  I believe (And it is ENTIRELY my belief) that humanity warped the original intention of Jesus.  You only have to look at the recent news to see this.  I referring to Kentucky.

 

How can ONE person say what God wants?  It’s all an opinion.  There is so much about humanity’s interference with spiritual matters that disturbs me.  It’s why I chose my own way.  I believe you can still be spiritual without attending organized religion.  Now I understand that some may see that as a blasphemous statement.  And that’s fine too.  We all have a right to our opinions.  Let me see if I can show you that I do believe in a higher power, in a Divinity, in God.

 

I see God everywhere.  I carry on a daily conversation with HIM ALL the time.  I’m always grateful for HIS presence in my life.  Too much has happened to me NOT to understand that there is a spiritual presence, a positive force, a Divinity guiding our lives.

 

So what is my worldview?
Worldview
 
Predestination
is a belief that your life has been mapped out for you long before you incarnate.  That God has a plan for you and no matter what you do, there are certain phases of your life that can’t change.  I’m sure if you look back over the course of your latest incarnation, you’ll see instances where this seems to be the case.  I believe there is no “bad.”  That everything that happens in our lives is always for the highest good, that everything is a lesson to improve our lives.  That whatever happens is supposed to happen. Predestination isn’t just a word for me.  It’s how I live my life, knowing that when something I MAY perceive as negative, as bad occurs, I understand it is God clearing the way for something better.  I’m sure if you look back over the course of your life, you will find examples of this as well.  Don’t fret over lost things.  Nothing is EVER truly lost.  There is no bad.  Everything is a lesson to help us move forward and everything that is happening in our lives is supposed to happen.  Our lives have been mapped out long before we incarnated.  That’s predestination. This is a rock solid part of my worldview.  You can open the link above to read more at Wisdom and Life.  Why am I using the phrase:
Your latest incarnation?  It is because I’m convinced we all return over and over.

 

Past Lives
Not only do I believe we all return over and over, I also believe we return in groups.  These groups are called Soul Groups.  We meet these souls in life when we need them.  We meet them in transition as well.  Why do we return?  I like to relate life and transition to an education system.  How do you move from one school grade to another?  You graduate by learning lessons from each grade, correct?  Think of each incarnation you make as a new grade.  Every time you transition you go through a transitory time.  Go back and read the column Soul Groups carefully and you’ll see a reference to Transition Station.

 

In Transition Station we review the most recent incarnation we just left.  We are with those in our Soul Group who have passed as well.  It is here that we discuss what we could have improved upon in the past life we recently left.  It’s a classroom where we can make improvements in our next life.  When we have completed our time in Transition Station, we then move to Transition Hall

 

Transition Hall is where we go to choose our next incarnation.  I understand that some of my worldview may sound a bit esoteric.  However, for someone steeped in the paradigm, it is all simply one piece to the puzzle.

 

Some of what I believe has caused consternation among friends, sometimes to the degree that I’ve alienated several old friends.  You know what, though?  To those who no longer want to be my friend, I tell them:
I’m still the same person I’ve ALWAYS been.  I’ve simply changed one aspect of my life.

 

Death and Dying
Death is simply a transition.  It is NOT the end, but a beginning.  When someone uses the word pass to describe a death do you understand what it means?  Do you understand why you use the word:
passing?

 

What does pass or passing mean to you?  To me it means changing from one form to another; to transition.  Someone long ago understood this, which is why the word passing has been used to describe a death.  No one ever ceases to be.  

Why would God who is love ever end anything?
Why would God rip someone out of your life who meant so much to you?

 

We will meet everyone again.  Souls are eternal.  The shells we use to reside in are not.  It is the soul, the essence of who we are that lives on.  It’s why there is such a thing as love at first sight.  It really isn’t first sight, but eternal sight.  Our souls recognize those in our soul group.  It’s what is meant by soul mates.  Soul mates aren’t always destined to be romantic partners.  Sometimes they may incarnate as best friends.  Maybe one or both of them want to live an incarnation separate from romance.  Your previous romantic partner may be your brother or your sister in another incarnation.  The thing to remember is that no one is EVER lost.  Those in your soul group have traveled with you during each incarnation and they will ALWAYS travel with you.

 

You may be saying:
Where does God fit into this worldview?  Because I don’t see HIM anywhere.

 

God is everywhere.  HE is everywhere.  He s the conductor of this entire thing we call life.  You may not always see HIM but it doesn’t mean HE doesn’t exist.  The example I give in:
Life After Death: What Do You Believe perfectly illustrates this.  The bottom line is that I choose to see God everywhere.  And that’s what it really comes down to.  That’s my worldview in it’s most common denominator:
Everything is a choice.

 

Be Happy!  Be Well!  Be Positive!
Blessings to you.

Once you realize that life is eternal,
That our souls our eternal,
That we return to light and physical over and over;

We then lose all our distress
We then lose all our fear of dying.  For there truly is no end.
