It is nothing against you when your loved ones die. Death of the body is commonplace in life. No one is singled out. It is not a black mark against you to die. Truly, beloveds, it is a gift. Your body gets tired. You are ready to go on to new realms that relieve you of the physical.
In relative life, the physical is always on your mind. Consider that your loved ones who have left their bodies no longer have burdens to carry. All they have left behind is the physical body. All is light now. The physical has a density, and now no heaviness exists. Death is like going on a well-deserved vacation from all that assails you. It certainly is a vacation from the gravity of life. You leave one city for another, that’s all. You are not gone. You are just as much as you ever were, only you have left your physical body behind you. It is like a return to the Silence where happiness only can reign. There is no suffering in what you call death. There is no punishment. No more stubbed toes. No more overt dimensions. No shoes to have to fit into. No looking for lost socks. No more imprisonment within a body. No more bruises. No longer a sense of need to get away.
Death is an arrival, beloveds. Do not crave death over life. The suffering you felt wasn’t real. Nor is death itself real. There is no death. What you call death offers a reprieve from the boundaries of the physical. That isn’t bad. Death is not a failing. Death is merely leaving one dimension and entering another, and one that does not have the boundaries that life on Earth in a physical body has. It is not a terrible thing for the body to die. It is a good thing when it happens.
When your loved ones seemingly leave, they have reached a different destination, and they haven’t left you for one minute. And they will always be with you. No one leaves life. Only a particular physical do they leave. And they don’t leave you. They want to be with you, and, at the same time, they go further on in their evolution. It is your evolution too, if you could only but know.
There is a continuum of life with or without the body. The body was a tool useful for only a while. Despite what you may have felt, the body has been the least of you and the least of your loved ones.
A star that reflects light would not moan for its physical existence nor would it mourn for any physical existence that takes a leave of absence. All along you have transcended the body. It is nothing new now when that which is called death arises. Whoever you are, no matter how great a physical presence, no matter how much you loved the physical and were loved in the physical, you never were your body. You really are not leaving anything. You are stepping out of old shoes, worn-out shoes, or shoes that simply don’t fit you any longer. You haven’t gone anywhere. If you like to consider that you go to the Elysian fields after death, then think it. You just got a raise in consciousness. In what is called death, you have risen, and yet you haven’t gone anywhere. You merely left your body behind. It was ready. And now you are not bound to the physical. Not that you ever were.
It is okay for the body to die. You as well as your loved ones will see with new eyes now. You will adjust to boundlessness. You will revel in it. You are free. You have been blessed.
