When a woman covers her face with a veil, her face does not change, just our view of it changes.  The same can be said of life.  Life is eternal.  It goes on forever.  But when death comes, it is as if it is gone, when only our view of life has been obscured. 

Do we believe in Life Eternal?  Do we believe God is Infinite Life and that we are created in the image and likeness of God?  Do we believe that God has no beginning or end?  Then we must believe this of Life. 

We are not our body.  Our body is but a vehicle for our earthly expression.  We need to take care of our body, for without it we shall exist no longer in this life in physical form, but we are by no means to be considered dead at that time.  We simply become dead to this world.  Life is precious here on this earth, and we need our body to carry our mission out in physical form.  Life holds meaning in accordance with our awareness of Spirit.  Spirit is God.  God is Love.  Life holds more meaning when lived in Love.

Death is a transition.  Our physical body is cast aside at that time and we no longer need it to get around or to see.  Perfect sight, perfect movement, perfect understanding are ours.  The veil of death has been lifted and we see what is on the other side.  We are able to see it all now, but unable to interact with those on the other side of the veil, and they are unable to interact, either, with us.  Except....sometimes...as in dreams, visions, and through clairvoyance of various types.  Many have, indeed, made contact with those who have since passed away.  I myself have, and many people I know also have.  There are so many more than just those I know.  I wonder if perhaps we have not all had such experiences, but perhaps dismissed them as something else?

Birth is a transition, as well.  When does the consciousness enter the body?  Consciousness creates the body, I think.  What I mean by that is that I have a vague yet very strong sense of a time before I was born.  Vague in the details, but very strong in the feeling of it.  I remember making a contract, however.  I remember planning my life and setting goals.  I remember accepting my mission.  I don't remember, per se, but as I said, I have a very strong sense that this is what occurred.  There is a part of me that remembers this, yes. 

I was blessed in having been led into memories of several past lives through hypnotic regression.  Some may say the memories were not memories at all but rather subconscious concoctions of my own imaginative mind, but J don't think the distinction is so important to make, for it is the mind that interprets reality at any point in time, is it not? 

What happens to us after we die?  No one knows for sure, I suppose, but many believe that they do.  I have had several near-death experiences.  (Psychic experiences come more often to some due to the awareness they have opened themselves to on a spiritual plane.  I have been aware of my "awareness" since childhood and have had many experiences of a spiritual natural as a result.)  One thing I learned through these experiences is that there are choices and consequences available to us regarding whether to leave the physical world before our work here is done.  We are given options, or at least in my case, I was. 

What I saw of heaven was all tht we dream it to be.  Complete Understanding.  Perfect Perspective.  Absolute Peace. Total Love.  Blissful Joy.  What I saw of hell was the horror and anguish of being disconnected from my physical expression and unable to use it as a vehicle to comlete my work in this life.  Leaving my body before it was time would have been absolute hell.  I thought of not holding my children for as long as I could, and I thought of my work with Essentials of Life Holistic Enrichment Center, even before it was formed.  The feeling of not completing my time was torturous to even imagine living with until my natural time would have come, and seeing all the ways I was meant to help but could not due to turning away from my vow to carry on in my work.  I hurried back to my body and gratefully picked it back up. 

I believe that all of us are here for a purpose, and that purpose may or may not be consciously known.  Whatever it is, though, it involves Love.  Love is God's will for us all, for God ids Love and we are created in the image of God.

So, what is the meaning of life?  To express Love in whatever way is our own special way.  This is not as easy in the physical world as it is in the world of Spirit where ALL is Love.  In the physical world we have the temptations of physical cravings and of curiosity.  In the physical form we have eaten of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and we are tempted by many things which distort the True meaning of Love.

The only rules we have been given regarded Love, and we are to express it to our neighbots, ourselves and our God.  We are not to kill...not very loving....not to steal....again, Love does not steal.  All of the commandments deal with Love in one way or another.  Lust is disrespectful to Love.  Coveting is not Love for Love is not envious.  We are told what Love is in the following verse:

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.


his passage is from the King James Version of the Bible and the word, "love" is used instead of "charity" in most other translations.  The word, "charity," however, is taken from the Greek word "agape," which is how the transcript was originally interpreted to read.  There are many meanings of the word, "love."  To use the word, "charity," goes beyond what we think of at weddings, where this verse is frequently read.  To read the passage as written here brings images of helping each other, for "agape" refers to a love of our fellow man.  May I suggest that "charity" be extended to all of our fellow creatures, not only man, for this is a more complete expression of Love.  Unconditional Love knows no bounds.

Not even death.  So the veil, it is just a veil.  It is n illusion that Life is gone.  Life is hiding just as a mama hides behind a scarf as she plays peek-a-boo or when a child plays hide-and-seek.  It is an illusion that they are gone.  It is the same as when the sun goes behind the clouds or is eclipsed by the moon, or even when it goes to the other side of the world and we have night.  The sun is still there.  Also, life id still there after death.

So if a person lives a life full of love, a life based on the principles of love to include compassion and mercy, truthfulness and willingness to do the right thing in all that we do, then we are assured of a peaceful time after death, so long as we honor the Spirit of Love and not be a cruel phoney baloney in life.  Love the Light.  Be the Love.  Be the Light.  Shine.

Can we communicate with those who have gone on?  Perhaps.  If it is meant to be and if you and they are open to it.  It's really easiest to just remember that you are One in Love, as are we all.  Go to that place of Love and remember them in your mind.  Ask a question and if you listen with an open heart it will come.  Otherwise, there are mediums, yes.  I know quite a few!  Be sure and pick someone who is ethical and filled with light.  You can tell by their inner glow. It's good to check their references, too.  Authentic mediums can help you a great deal in putting your fears to rest regarding extremely personal matters or they can be a source of great disturbance if they are untrue or negative in their intent.  Always surround yourself in God's Holy Light and deny any power of darkness, for Love is the only Power there is.  Anything else which appears to have power is an illusion to us, even death. 

Do you know someone who has passed away who was so loving you can still feel their warmth?  Perhaps your mother or grandmother or somebody else.  To me, it was my Mom.  I can still feel her love just as strong, and her love still impacts my life in so many ways.  She will be a part of me always, and she will live on in my children, and theirs and theirs and theirs.  My mom was made of Pure Love and she is shining in heaven today, or in another body again here on earth to shine love forth in the brightest way.  I don't know, but I do know that my mom is not dead.  She is resting in peace, but she is alive!

So don't be afraid of when the time of death comes.  It will come in its right time.  Live a good life in the meantime, the very  best that you can.  Fulfill your purpose by extending Love to the world!  Give love to yourself, your family, your neighbors, to all of life!  Find the God of your understanding and thn offer yourself in loving service to that!  Love is the way to overcome the illusion of death.  Love has perfect sight.  With eyes of Love, you can easily see through the veil.

Halloween is rooted in Celtic tradition and is considered by those who understand it to be the most holy day of the year.  It is a time of harvesting, putting away for the winter, saying goodbye to the past year.  It is also a time that is considered to be the time when the veil between the two worlds is at its thinnest and most easily penetrable state.  Happy Halloween and remember those who have passed on with Love!  Then it's time for us to move on, rejoicing, for a good harvest in the past year and give thanks for a good year to cone.

Blessings,
