1-6. Do not fear death. Death is not the end and birth is not the beginning. Nothing that God Created can ever cease to be.
Death is not at all what you likely believe it to be. It is not an end, not a dark night, not a cessation of your consciousness. It does not represent the end of a journey or a place of non-existence. It is merely a transition back to the formlessness that was the origin of your eternal Soul. From this formless Void did you arise, complete and total in and of yourself. You were Created. This simple Truth contains all of the hope you will ever need to face anything that might befall you with strength. That which God Created can never perish, never end and never cease to be forever Complete. Your physical birth is of a similar quality to the death that your body will face when it has reached the end of its utility. This death may come after many years of life, in a gradual wearing down of your cells and the natural processes of decay that befall all physical things of this world. Or physical death may come for your sooner, perhaps caused by an accident or illness from which your body does not recover. This is of no consequence. Just as you chose to be poured into a body, to temporarily inhabit a form that has great usefulness and value while it is functioning, you chose as well to leave this form and to return to the Field of Universal Consciousness. This Field is ever pervasive and it imbues your mind and body with Life. Bodies do not create consciousness. Indeed they have no consciousness in and of themselves. They are merely vessels for consciousness to occupy for such a very short period of time, when viewed from the perspective of that is Eternal, that the span of time across which your body functions is of almost no consequence at all. A desire to be present in this world will naturally lead to the funneling down of your incredibly vast Awareness into a somewhat limited physical form. You asked to be here. You may not remember this request. Very few do. However you did ask, and you were granted your wish to return to this world again and again. Almost all of your friends are here, inhabiting bodies in the same way that you inhabit yours. Why would you not want to be here? It is a wonderful place of Joy and Peace. Heaven on Earth is already Real, ever present and available to you and everyone else in every moment. It would be easy to believe that this is not True. Indeed this world appears to embody an illusion of separation that appears to be impenetrable. But it is not. No one is truly alone in this world. Your mind, the consciousness that pervades your Being and which is the spark of your eternal Soul, is not at all limited to residence in the flesh. It can reach anywhere, knowing anything and being a part of all that has ever been, is now and will ever be. Only your beliefs in limitation prevent you from traveling anywhere in your mind. Imagination is actually far more Real than anything physical. If you can imagine something, you can find it. Love and Peace are Real. Birth and death are no more relevant to the entire arch of your evolution back towards your Origin in the Heart of Love than any particular station a train might arrive at during its journey. No one would mistake the station for the train. The station is stationary. It remains, while the train moves. Your body is as this. A station for temporary inhabitance while the train of your mind progresses along its journey back to God. That your body will fail is certain. All physical things must decay. Entropy is the natural progression of all that is physical. Eggs don’t unscramble themselves. While this might appear discouraging, it is in fact a great Gift. Were the Universe to trend towards greater and greater levels of organization, confusion and chaos would ensue. No work would be needed, no construction possible and no progression available to anyone. All things would take care of themselves, constantly becoming more aligned and increasingly functional without any input. This would not be a desirable situation. The Universe’s natural trend towards decay is massively valuable. Within and intrinsically joined with this decay is the possibility of renewal and new life. If plants did not decay, if trees did not fall, there could be no soil to support new growth. Constant cycling and renewal are immensely valuable and but natural to Nature. In this decay and collapse, the possibility of freshness and renewal are found. Just as your current body will fail, a new body will arise and be available to you when its time is right. You will find yourself to this new body, again and again, continuing cycles of death and rebirth until such time as these processes of destruction and creation no longer have any utility within the scheme of the unfolding of your consciousness. Your consciousness was not physically born. It was Created. All that God Created is Forever. Joined with and forever Safe within the Mind of God, there is nowhere for you to go. You are already Home. The Heart of Love sustains and supports you, forever and always. You can journey far from this Truth. You can search the entire Universe if you should wish, looking for what which is already within you. This search is not foolish in any way. In fact it is generally necessary for everyone, as without first looking absolutely everywhere that is outside of you, you will eventually arrive at the inescapable conclusion that the one place you have not yet looked is within. Because bodies appear to be separate from other bodies, it is normal and expected that you will first search outward for Truth. Most, if not all, of what you were aware of was temporarily forgotten when you channeled your enormous consciousness into a body. All of this Truth remains in your mind. But it is rarely accessible without first proceeding though many steps and challenges. The reasons for this process of questing for that which you already Know, but have forgotten, remains mysterious indeed. Perhaps only the Mind of God knows exactly why this becomes the path that almost every Soul chooses to progress through they return to Truth. But it is of no consequence. What can time be, no matter how long or short, when examined from the perspective of Eternity? Inconsequential indeed. Perhaps even primarily irrelevant. But not without at least a modicum of value. Time functions as a space of possibilities, one all of the Children of God can inhabit for a while as they complete the process of remembering that they are forever Safe. Reincarnation is not a new life. It is the same consciousness traveling though different physical forms. The construction and appearance of these forms is irrelevant. They are but masks, temporary forms in a myriad of varieties. Appearing to point to separation and isolation, they in fact only indicate that the Universe is vast in the great variety of forms it can take. You are the Universe. The Universe is you. There is no separation, no distinction and no isolation from all that is now, has ever been or will ever be. This seems strange from the perspective of the ego. Bizarre, abnormal and perhaps even insane. The ego is a creation of the body. An illusion of residence in form, a strange and twisted perspective in which the car believes itself to be the driver. No sane person would conclude that an aggregation of functional, mechanical systems is in any way the consciousness that operates the machine. Cars have no life, no consciousness and no Soul. Neither do bodies. However it is very common to assign life to the body, mistaking its biological functions with that which is Life Itself. Consciousness can exist, and indeed it does exist, in many forms, without the body. But bodies without consciousness do not function. Life is not physical. It has no form. It is not sustained by or dependent upon anything of this world. Life is, in and of Itself, already Complete and Total. It is Eternal, forever existing and ceaselessly changing. Life grows, changes and expands. There is but one Life, and we are all indispensable parts of It. Created before time began, Life will continue after time has ceased to have any utility. No words can suffice to explain what the Nature of Life is. It is not something to know. It cannot be found or lost. It is Forever. You are an integral part of this Life. Created by It, dwelling within its Power, and forever sustained by Its infinite expansion. A great many roads and journeys are available to you. Almost all appear to arrive at different destinations. The train has many stations. It travels far, covering nearly infinite distance and progressing along so many different tracks that it might seem impossible that it has but one destination. But in Truth, it does. There is nowhere to return to. You are already Home. Heaven sustains, supports and surrounds you. You cannot leave the Kingdom of God. You would not wish to, if you were able to actually see the Peace that is your heart. But this is not something to be seen or known. It can only be Experienced. Once remembered, it cannot be forgotten or lost. Created by an Infinite and forever Loving God, you are already Safe and Complete. No span of time is enough for you to turn away from this Truth. You will return to that which is forever Real. The amount of time you feel you will need to return is entirely up to you. When you are ready, God will welcome you Home.
