Our birth was not our beginning, and neither shall our death be our end. As God’s creations, extensions and expressions, we are what He is. If God is eternal, then so too are we. God is Love, and thus this is who we are — this is our eternal essence. The more we make the conscious effort to align with the eternal in us, the more we realize that this is who we truly are. Today, let us make the conscious choice to change how we look at death. We do so by first setting aside the ego’s illusionary paradigm that we are dust and return to dust. Our eternal essence, our true nature, has nothing to do with dust. So the truth in us will never return to dust. Our eternal loving essence existed long before it chose to be in a physical body, and it will exist long after it chooses to leave it.
Today, let us recognize that in every moment and interaction, we either reinforce decay and death or we reinforce eternal life. Judgment, anger, hate, resentment and revenge are symbols of decay and death. They are symbols of the body, of the temporal, of the dust that returns to dust. Love and all of its expressions, such as peace, joy, compassion, forgiveness and charity, are representations of God, of the truth in us, our souls, our eternal essence and nature. When we align with the symbols of decay and death, we walk into darkness and despair. When we align with the symbols of the eternal, our light shines brighter and brighter. If you ever find yourself in the darkness, do not despair. Simply use your free will to make a different choice — to choose love over fear and God’s eternity over the ego’s decay.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
