A Collage of Near Death Experiences.
(This post is made up of quotes from many near death experiences, an interesting "crash course" on what NDEs are all about. I hope you will enjoy it.)
I heard the words, "Remember, pray without ceasing. Play. Love. Laugh. Live for the joy of it. Have fun. Happiness is holy. The purpose of life is joy. Savor fully the loveliness of each experience. Self-awareness is the prayer of the heart. To pray without ceasing is to play. Play with the joyful abandon of the child, absorbed in the delight of each moment. Let go of obligation and duty. Live for the pure joy of being."
There is only one truly significant work to do in life, and that is love; to love nature, to love people, to love animals, to love creation itself, just because it is. To serve God's creation with a warm and loving hand of generosity and compassion - that is the only meaningful existence.
We were conceived in love spiritually, and love is the center of our beings. It is the energy of our souls, the spark of our divine nature. Being made of love, we cleave to it and seek it in all that we do. When we do not have it, or when we have lost it, we grieve. Its presence or absence colors our every action. It is life. It is happiness. It is salvation itself.
There is power in our thoughts. We create our own surroundings by the thoughts we think. Physically, this may take a period of time, but spiritually it is instantaneous. If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the awesome power of our words, we would prefer silence to almost anything negative. In our thoughts and words we create our own weaknesses and our own strengths. Our limitations and joys begin in our own hearts.
There is no difference between scrubbing floors and praying, between balancing your checkbook and praising God. It's all the same energy from the same Source. The only difference is how we choose to manifest that energy at any given moment in time and space.
Suddenly I was in the presence of a Being of Light. I could not see the face, could communicate, but not in words or pictures even; in some connection of Oneness. I experience that connection in meditation frequently, but I cannot explain it very precisely. It is beyond words and other kinds of experiences. The emotions are always enhanced. I feel joy so deep that my whole self leaps with gratitude; I feel peace; I feel awe and belonging. I did not have a specific life review, but felt everything about me and my life was known, understood and not judged. I was profoundly loved.
Thoughts have come to me in a situational way over the last nine months, that have caused me great surprise. These gems are coming from my lips! I knew them because God taught me them years ago. I just wasn't listening is all.
Like, we are not placed here to be the paper upon which others poop, we are here for each other, but not to be used by one another. We truly need each other at times, but need the wisdom to know when to leave one alone when they want to be with their other friend, God! We have no right to take away their relationship with their God.
We must recognize that bad things happen to good people, and good things happen to bad people. But we are not the judge, if we want something we must go after it. Give it all we have and let life be a surprise to us instead of us trying to surprise it! When I look back on my childhood, I do so with great pleasure. It was the grandest time of my life! Looking back on it, It was a constant surprise! Every day some great adventure occurred.
Each day regardless of the situation, you learn a lesson, you may not like the lesson, but it is one you need to learn.
I was then out of body, so light, so free, so content to just be. Everyone was so upset, so desperate to help me, I didn't need help I was fine and so happy, more happier than I ever felt. At peace with the feeling of acceptance and love. It was more overpowering than anything I ever felt. I then realized I knew things, it is all so simple, people made things so difficult, it didn't have to be. What really caught my interest is knowing why we can't use all of our potential, wow, what an eye opener, we have knowledge of this side with us all the time in our head but to live here and learn what we must to grow in understanding of emotional pain, physical pain, complete loneliness, complete helplessness, that part of us is asleep for as long as our heart is beating. When our heart stops our complete knowledge returns. Everyone who dies sees and hears what they need for their crossover to be as calmly accepted to them as possible, wait there is more I want to remember, then I am so cold, oh no I am back, I hurt, I want to go back. I was given CPR I had no pulse or heartbeat. This is the hardest school I could ever go to, I am not finished, there is more I have to do, more I have to learn, it will be harder now, knowing where I could be.
The being of light showed me that all that was really important in life was the love we felt, the loving acts we preformed, the loving words we spoke, the loving thoughts we held. All that was made, said, done, or even thought without love was undone. It didn't matter. It simply did no longer exist. Love was all that was really important, only love was real. Everything we did lovingly was supposed to be. It was okay. It was good.
And the love we'd felt during our lives was all that was left when everything else, everything perishable in life, had vanished.
I hope that y'all enjoy them.
Bless each of you and may your days and nights be filled with peace, joy and contentment.
