Oh, Virginia, it is so much more than any of us could have guessed. I have to tell you that and that’s the thing. I don’t think I can put it into words. I really don’t think I can give you a correct and accurate interpretation. Of course I will try but, you know, it is so much different than anything there on Earth and it is hard to find words that I could use that would really give you a sense of what it is like here. Oh, the idea of heaven is a wonderful one so if you want it to be of everything as perfectly beautiful, well, I would say definitely go there. But, you see, your ideas of perfect and beautiful are so far from complete in what we can experience in spirit.
So you can think of the most beautiful and powerful sunset you have ever seen as the background of everything we experience here. It is just the background. Do you understand what I’m saying here? The profound sense of grandeur I’m trying to bring here is amazing when you leave that body - the way you just feel pulled right out of it, right out of your humanness, all of it left behind. I think I was willing to do that. I think I was ready to do that. I think we all knew that. I was just about there in my mind with it all. I was just about ready to say I can just go at any time. So I was there. I wasn’t clinging. I wasn’t holding on. No matter what people think I just wanted to go because once you feel that, once you feel that pull and you begin to get a sense of how expansive you really are, well you want to explore that.
That’s what it is, Virginia. People say they feel pulled and human beings think, oh my God, they were taken but, no, the pull is really from you. You are pulling yourself into this expansive, creative light that we are. That’s it. You are pulling on the light that comes from you. So if you want an image of it then you picture a light more brilliant than the sun – more brilliant than the sun, can you imagine that – and then you image that there is beautiful rope, a golden thread, that comes from that light and circles around until it comes into your beingness and it connects you to that light. Can you see that ethereal cord, if you will? Well, all of a sudden something wakes up in you. Something wakes up in you. I want you to think about that. Everybody says, “Oh, you die” and something dies but I’m going to tell you you wake up!
What do you think of that? That’s a different way of looking at it. So this that you are wakes up inside of you, that light, and so you say, “Wait a minute, I am done here. I’m supposed to be going somewhere much grander.” And you remember that. That is part of the journey. You remember it! You not only remember it, you are excited about it. So you start pulling on that thread and you start pulling on that rope. You start pulling. People say you are pulled out of your body – no, I don’t believe that. I believe you wake up and you pull yourself out. You say, “I’m going home” and you realize that home is everywhere. It is not a place, a far off land. It is not a separate, distant ideological image. It is an awareness that you expand into.
How about that? How about that interpretation? You don’t need it limited to logic anymore. You don’t need to limit it to space and time anymore. You don’t need to limit it to the human imagination anymore. Oh, the freedom, Virginia! You are just going to love this moment of reckoning when you make sense of all of it and it doesn’t matter if it makes sense at all. That is the best part of it. There is no more thought, Virginia. You just leave it behind and you just know it for what it is in the moment and appreciate the grandeur of all that you are when you come to recognize that you were not even close to knowing who you were when you were in the physical. Oh, you might have a little heads-ups, more than the rest of us, but even still you are going to be amazed. You really are. There is nobody that transitioned that doesn’t come to that state of awe of the process of the reintegration of truth.
That is what it is. It is like we just put these filters of misinformation in our state of perception – the fear, the doubt, the sense of duality, the sense of responsibility and obligation, and the guilt and the judgment – and we just keep putting more and more lenses on our ability to perceive our life from a state of authenticity. That that is all you have to do for the rest of your life – spend your energy trying to take those lenses away so you can remember who you truly are. Yet there you are at the end of your life and all it takes is one tug and you know. You know exactly who you are. You know exactly why you are and you know where to go and you realize that there is no distance there. It is a shift in consciousness. It is a shift in intent and then you are home. And home is the all-knowing awareness of this universal experience. That is home. It is not a place. It is awareness.
Now here is the interesting part. That awareness is everywhere always – everywhere always. Think about that. That is what you tap into, Virginia. That is what inspires you, Virginia. That is where your creative flow comes from, Virginia, and because of your willingness to always keep your mind open to it you have always felt a connection to that. I know you’ve had your days but you can count them on two hands, Virginia. Compared to your lifetime of being open and experiencing the Divine, oh, you know. You know who you are when you can let the Divine guide your life and that is who you have always been. You never doubted. You never lost yourself to fear. You have always been one to say, “I get it. I don’t know what I get but I get it.” And the thing is there you were, always trying to figure it out. You wanted to understand what you knew. You wanted to be able to share it with people. So I’ll give you a little heads-up, Virginia. I want you to hear me. I don’t want you to waste your energy on something that is not going to come to fruition. So I want you to understand that all you can do is share your experience. You can’t intend to validate these spiritual experiences for minds that cannot see spirit.
V – Is she talking about my book that might not come to fruition?
It is more of your desire. I don’t want to say the book won’t come to fruition as much as your desire for what you think the book is going to be. I just have to give it to you like that. No matter how scientific you get with this, with all of this, there is always going to be a place of non-inclusion. There is a level of consciousness on the earth plane that is grounded in physical, material orientation that keeps us real in the physical. So you have to honor those that are so certain about what they know is real in their physical world because they anchor us into this earth, Virginia. So we are not going to change people’s ideas that are not here for that experience. You can’t think they are all going to get it and we don’t want them to.
That is something I want to give it to you like that. It will change the way you look at that. We need those for balance. We need the doubters. We need the denials. We need to stay grounded in some material way logically so we can keep balance. Not you and I or those that will believe but those that are here to be that grounding force in the physical are always going to oppose this kind of information because that is their job here. We are not meant to prove to anybody but we understand. You are here to take it in, to figure it out, and to give it a place in an intellectual interpretation of life so that others that come after you can find their way to that place. That’s all I wanted to say.
