Only by living my life in GRATEFULNESS have I realized how blessed I am and only then can I truly accept the gift of knowing that I am not only deeply loved but I am part of something far greater than myself.
It has long been my opinion that the phenomenon associated with the near and after death experience indicates that a state of unconditional love and soul consciousness lies not only beyond apparent death ~ but also beneath our deepest fears.
Bobby is now in a state of soul consciousness and gloriously happy for I felt his joyful presence the morning he passed and actually saw his childlike playful presence, at a much younger age, much like I felt and saw our mother’s youthful loving presence when she suddenly passed away in 1987 ~ when she lovingly appeared in my bedroom 3000 miles away joyfully exclaiming to me ~ Allen, I know, Allen, I Know
A Unified Field of love and soul consciousness lies not only deepest within ourselves but also beyond time and space. It is also the strong force within the basic atom as revealed in Asymptotic freedom. The basic property of this Unified Field is the universal urge to unite and we resist it at the risk of extinction.
No one really talks about the psychic damage that combat veterans feel when they take someone’s life, regardless of the military situation ~ but the effect is real and usually manifests itself as shame based guilt whereas the innate deep need to love and accept love is quite often permanently disabled.
Time after time in my heart centered counseling, with both veterans and civilians, I find that once they realize that they have loved people deeply in the past and recognize that these people were and are still gifts in their quest to find themselves ~ the magic of self-healing begins, aided by dreams and all sorts of unforeseen events which happen to accelerate that process.
What is illuminating to me now is that even at that young age of three ~ I felt an innate need to share my individual joy and delight with the world at large ~ which is precisely what I am still doing as I embark on my 79th year on the planet .
My heart is most definitely grateful that you were my loving twin and companion for so many years and I will most certainly be with you in your final moments and most definitely when you pass through the event horizon of physical death.
Without a doubt, the secret of my extremely successful short term transformational counseling, with both combat veterans with PTSD as well as emotionally wounded civilians, is the miracle of Gratefulness ~ for the only antidote for unworthiness and self-negation is gratefulness.
Death is a tall dark stranger ~ who always arrives when you least expect it. Its cold forbidding presence rides on the chariot of the unknown. However, beneath its ominous gray shroud beats an all encompassing heart for death is but a passage within a loving plan in action.Thus those who we love deeply not only live in our hearts but become part of us forever ~ as my late granddaughter Kaitlyn most certainly lives in my heart.
With the world economies mired in depression and debt and the American military machine cranking up for Syria and Iran ~ I look to nature as well as deep space for reminders that we are innately part of something far greater than ourselves or as William Blake wrote “We are put on earth a little space to bear the beams of love.”
So on Memorial Day 2012 ~ let us honor those who have died, let us heal the countless wounded and let us take the necessary action to stop these illegal occupations, masqueraded as wars ~ which are actually mockeries of freedom and liberty
Gustavo: Isn't it mandatory to have an autopsy in all cases of suicide?
It sure is in my country.
