A message from a son trying to find the words to explain to his mom what it was like dying...

"It comes so quickly, like a flash of light.

All of a sudden, you’re here, you’re there, you’re up, you’re down, you’re in, you’re out.

Everything is inside out.

Everything is turned upside down and everything is exactly perfect.

It’s like all of a sudden everything just shifts and you release yourself from something that you never knew was holding you in.

It’s like all of a sudden I just felt everything shift, everything just shifted.

I don’t even know what that means or what that word means to you.

I can’t explain it in words.

I’m trying. I’m trying to see how I can tell you what I want to tell you.

I feel like it was important. That was one of the things I felt – like it was so important to let go.

That’s what it felt like – like everything was pulling me in one direction and there was no resistance in me.

There was something that felt so important that I knew I just had to let go.

I just had to release myself from it all.

It felt like that. It felt like a release.

It didn’t feel like isolation.

It didn’t feel like incarceration.

It didn’t feel like any unknown place.

I wasn’t scared.

There wasn’t anything that was unfamiliar.

It wasn’t dark and dingy.

It was bright and airy and clear, crisp and light.

I keep saying that. I don’t know what else to say there. It’s all that I can remember as far as what I experienced.

Everything just left and there I was in this light that was everywhere and everyone was light.

Everyone, even you.

Everyone is light.

That’s what it’s like.

I see you, I see me, I see different shades of everyone.

I think that’s where we choose to live – how much shade we choose to hide behind.

Maybe like that. Then when you let go you’re not hiding behind anything.

You are pure light and you just start growing, expanding, beaming,

I don’t know if there’s a word I can tell you.

I don’t really have a word.

I don’t think there is a word but I want you to feel it.

I want you to feel the me I never knew I could feel like I was.

Everything went so fast.

Everything went so quick there wasn’t time to figure it out.

*** I didn’t need to be figured out. ***

There was nothing anybody could do, nothing anybody could say that could change anything.

Everything was done.

It was already done.

That’s what I mean. That pull that I felt was already done.

* It was like I was already beyond where I was.*

I needed to get out so that I could move on and move forward."

A message from a son in spirit trying to find the words to explain to his mom the process of leaving his body.

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
