What do most people fear at the moment of death? The unknown, that Life ends, that there is no God, and that their regrets or fears or worries can’t be resolved and may stay with them for eternity.
I have had two near-death experiences after surgery (discovering I’m allergic to Dilaudid), and I want to say… it is pure BLISS!
In those moments, time stopped. Joy Itself was radiating from every cell of my body. I was floating on waves of Love, Creativity, Peace (utter Peace), everything dropping away except my awareness that my body was no longer mine—that it NEVER WAS mine—that THIS is Who I Really Am. And yet, I was still very much aware, present, active, thinking and focused—not on the room, which was abuzz with activity, but on the sheer dreaminess of it all. There is Life Hereafter, and it is Divine—ALL DIVINE. In other words, there is nothing else. This body, that beeping, those nurses, this physical condition, are all illusions, temporary experiences in matter—a gift, to be sure, but a temporary gift.
The Truth is we ARE truly spiritual beings having a human experience, and ours is a fluid, co-creative reality that is ever-changing and backed by Infinite Potential, nothing less than Love Itself.
The most giving gesture you can offer someone in their final hours is the Freedom and Comfort of the Truth. Of course, you can’t explain all of this to a dying person, but you can bring them real comfort telling them that they are loved, forgiven, and already accepted by God…
I offer you these words to say to one in their final days or hours, perhaps over and over again. I hope they help bring final Peace for you and your dear friend or family member who is transitioning into this pure Awareness.
Beloved, you are in the midst of Love Itself, already resting in the arms of the Divine. God made you and has never left you. You are already accepted and received. You are wholly safe. You are already Perfect, Whole and Complete, yet nothing is ending. You are Infinite, now being reborn into the full awareness of your Oneness with Source.
You are already forgiven for anything you feel requires forgiveness, for forgiveness was never necessary. Thank you for playing your part so perfectly. Thank you for loving me so well. Thank you for letting yourself be loved by me.
Know that this Life continues. This connection continues. You are never alone. I am never alone. There is no separation. We are truly One, so this is not goodbye. I am fine. You are fine.
Breathe the breath of God, beloved. Be at ease now and know that All Is Well, All is Grace, All is Love. You are already resting in God’s Heart.
