A Change Of Perspective

Rays of Wisdom - Comfort for the Bereaved - Letter of Condolence to a Friend

For some time by now, we and our world have been in the process of entering into a whole new evolutionary phase and a new age. That is why great changes have been taking place and still are doing so everywhere. Slowly and almost imperceptibly on the surface of life, we are progressing ever deeper into the Age of Aquarius. This is an age in which wisdom and truth directly from the Source of our being will flow ever more powerfully into all human hearts and souls.

To my mind, the best news the new age has brought us from the highest levels of life is that, quite literally, there is no death. There is absolute continuity in life which eternally continues without disruptions. Whenever one door closes for one of us, at physical death, another one instantly opens and we re-enter our true home, the world of spirit.  Another, to my mind equally important truth we are re-discovering is that although we love the people that accompany us on our way through life, some more than others, everybody’s truly beloved dwells within. This part is our God or Highest Self. For a very long time now it has been waiting to be called upon by us directly, so that it can guide and protect us and keep us safe in all Eternity – and that quite literally.

In ‘The Tenant of Wildfell Hall’ Anne Bronté describes the way she perceives the process of death as follows: ‘To regret the exchange of earthly pleasures for the joys of heaven [the world of spirit] is as if the grovelling caterpillar should lament that it must quit the nibbled leaf, to soar aloft and flutter through the air, roving at will from flower to flower, sipping sweet nectar from their cups, or basking in their sunny petals. If these little creatures knew how great a change awaited them, no doubt they would regret it, but would not all such sorrow be misplaced?’

How right she is! The same undoubtedly applies to each one of us, therefore to our loved ones. Yet, there no longer is any need to take anyone else’s word as the final one, when it comes to finding out spiritual truths. It is everybody’s own responsibility to search for their own truth. If that sounds too scary for your liking, it is worth your while to get hold of your fear. The only way it can be overcome is through finding out for yourself.

Take heart from knowing that none of us is ever alone in this life. No matter what bothers us, God and the Angels are always with us and waiting to be called upon. For all of us the time has come for learning to follow the guidance we constantly receive from the living God within, who dwells in the very core of everybody’s own being. We are in this life to re-learn to walk hand in hand with God and the Angels, the way we once did, and for asking ourselves some searching questions, like: ‘What happened to you, my loved one and where have you gone to? And where shall I be going, when I come to the end of the road that you have walked before me? Who am I? Who and what are we all? Is there a God? If so, who and what is God? What is the nature of our special relationship with God?’

Let us start at the beginning and look at the way we perceive this life and then ask: ‘Who am I and what is God?’ Go into a meditative and reflective mood, ask your God or Highest Self and the Angels to grant you the gift of a better understanding, and then continue pondering on something like this: ‘I am a beloved child of God; I am spirit and soul; I am a spark of the Divine, of light, of the Great Light that fills the whole of Creation with Its presence. I do need people around me, but I do not need anyone to make me whole, because I already am whole and complete within myself. The only lack there is within me is the full conscious awareness that I am soul and spirit; that God is my beloved Mother/Father Creator. The Great loving Spirit that pervades the whole of Creation is also in you and me, our loved ones, as well as all those we are not too keen on or downright dislike.
