A destiny or is it fate that we all create in some way by our thoughts, words and actions when our soul will exit our body?
Does DNA play a role?
Do we come into this world programmed with an illness that will manifest and end our time here?
Is exiting this life experience part of a bigger plan to teach those we love and those who love us a lesson?
Do we in somehow make a sacred contract to die in a mass murder, terrorist attack, suicide or act of weather; tsunami, earthquake, hurricane or tornado?
Is not life eternal and the truth is that we are reincarnated anyway to begin again?
Kabbalah teaches us that we come back to make a correction because somehow we did mess up in our last life and exited before we made the correction?
Is life such a mystery or an enormous plan to teach us all to be loving, kind and respectful to one another no matter what?
Will we have no regrets if we are loving, kind and respectful to all?
Are we born gifted and preprogrammed to share our inner wisdom and passion when we discover it with all?
Why is it so difficult to discover who we are and why we are here?
Are we not here to be of service?
Can this fear of death which creates within us a fear to live as loving spiritual beings be because we create a belief that we are in control of our lives?
Can it be that in doing so, we live life by taking everything that happens to others that we love personal?
Although we are all one, are we not here on a unique individual journey walking our path to discover our truth, to expand and hear the voice of our soul?
Can this path be as simple as to love ourselves so that we can love another unconditionally?
Is it true that we pick our parents to either learn from them or to teach them something, yet some of us become disappointed in them, abandoned by them, hateful of them, abused by them and spend our lives trying to make some kind of sense out of our relationship with them?
Why is life completely difficult for many because a loved one has died in whatever manner was their destiny/fate while another knows there is no death but that life, the soul is eternal?
Why? Why? Why? These questions fill my mind about an aspect of life called death, when the truth is it affects every living species on our planet. We cry, we become depressed, we grieve for days, months, years or even our entire lifetime because a grandparent, husband, wife, mother, father, brother, sister, child or friend has died!
Could there not be a better word to describe when the body is no longer but the soul continues to exist?
Is it the word death itself that creates this belief in someone simply ending and being no more that terrifies us?
Personally, my grandparents, brother, nephew, father and some friends have exited life. I grieved the hardest when my brother suddenly died by a drunk driver twenty-five years ago. It was sudden and painful but the doors of my soul flew open and within me my inner wisdom manifested a way of thinking in my mind that IAM not responsible for who dies or lives. I questioned even back then God; “why did he not make the choice to stay, why did he die leaving a wife and three young children while breaking my mom’s heart wide open?”
There had to be a plan, a time allotted, either through that which we co-create with God, whether it be illness, murder or even when another takes their life willingly. There had to be an inner knowing which I imagine today is the essence of who we are that we ignore and end up following a path towards our own end. Babies get ill and die suddenly, children are abused and children are murdered by others and sometimes by their own parents, did they have that sacred contract and volunteer for these lives to teach the living a lesson?
Through the years I have learned that we manifest and co-create our lives with God by the given act of free will that we all possess. Being loving, kind and joyful is all we need to be and yet we create lives that we fear, and we hate because of our belief in guilt, shame, grief, lies, illusion and attachment. Life gets filled up with fear, nonsense, suffering and pain because someone we loved has exited their body by their choice, could this be, I wonder, the plan for us to learn to not take things personally? I believe we are more powerful then we can imagine and that power is our own word and emotional belief that we project outward. There must be a reason for everything and I believe this is the mystery of life and our existence here on planet Earth. We have made life the vehicle for our suffering only because things are not happening as we feel they must but if we let go and let God our lives will be empty of pain and suffering.
I honestly don’t believe there is anyone living who has not experienced the death of a loved one. But think about that grief you hold on to in your heart daily as your personal life preserver. Somehow we have attached ourselves to death by this process we call grieving. We must grieve we are all told and we all know how to deeply grieve our losses. What if we decided to celebrate the time we shared with our loved ones, remember their smile, laugh, how they hugged us and delighted in life no matter how old they were when they died? I would like you to imagine that maybe just maybe you can be hurting the one you love because you do not let them rest in peace when all along it was their plan to exit when they did because of their own thoughts, words and actions. Is not the teachings in life to love and let go those we love to discover their reason for being no matter what we may desire to control. Do we not all have the ability and gift to fly on our own no matter how old we are, living or dead?
Can it simply be karma?
