P1080185Why do we cry at funerals? They’ve gone into the light and don’t feel any pain anymore, while we weep for our loss and the regrets of what could have been. But life unfolds itself as sure as the ocean waves keep rolling in…There are high tide and low tide, ebb and flow without ceasing. Powerful energy doesn’t end. (This is a re-post from Jan 2016 in memory of a good friend.)

Now we honour the people who pass away with services called Celebrations of Life. I like the name, for that’s what death is. The game is over. And we celebrate the efforts of the player who struggled so hard to play the game well. The big challenge is what we do, with what we’ve been given. That’s what’s important. And maybe the purpose of life is our small part to play in the game. Maybe our strengths have made others live differently, and our faults have cautioned them to change. I’m not judging. We’re each here to accumulate the skills of living and loving…and to take it to the other side.

Do you believe in an afterlife of some kind? Mercy means we’re not only judged by our actions but by the intent of our hearts! Then graduation from the school of Life is something to celebrate. And when you get on in years, sometimes you get sick and tired of just fighting to live. When you’re worn out from trying to change your world and you dream of a promised land, isn’t death but a sweet release?

There’s an old spiritual song that goes like this, “Everybody wants to go to heaven, …but nobody wants to die.” Don’t we all want to live in a better realm of existence? Well, on our planet, we have to work on that. And some of us have to die to do it.

Fotosearch_k10149770Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— 52 in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.  1 Corinthians 15:50-52 NIV Bible
There was a dilemma in producing humans as the God Kind: God could not create us as a finished product. What a paradox! Amazingly, we had to be left incomplete in this aspect so we might desire to learn to love and to wield power appropriately. In infinite intelligence, the Great Ones saw that only a process of development could create these final characteristics. In human terms, that process is called life. Order on Amazon.com The Celestial Proposal, Chapter 2, A Design for the Human Species, page 22.
