A Metaphysical Look at Death

When someone has made their transition, they’ve left this plane of existence. Some call this experience death. While we may fully embrace the idea of ongoing life, we may still feel the “rope burn” of having someone/something we desired, pulled from our grasp. We can bless and know the person making their transition moves on the wings of love, and also grieve for the fact that we miss our physical companionship with the person who has made their transition.

We agree we live in a three-dimensional world, when in fact, science has discovered twelve dimensions of which they’re aware. This validates many experiences people have had that do not fit neatly into out three-dimensional world thinking. Religious Science (not Christian Science, not Scientology) does not take a stand on reincarnation, but does teach that just as in nature, life is ongoing and there are different levels of experience. While we may return to this exact place, there is no waste, and no finality to spirit.

When our soul arrived to this life experience there was a celebration. Who are we to think we’re the only ones waiting to celebrate the arrival of souls? It’s much like a boat sailing into the horizon. we stand on shore, feeling loss as we lose view of the boat. Yet, there are others on the distant shore waiting in excitement for its arrival.

 It is because you believe you are born that you fear death. Who is it that was born? Who is it that dies? Look within. what was your face before you were born? Who you are, in reality, was never born and never dies. let go of who you think you are and become who you have always been (Levine, Who Dies? an investigation of Conscious living and Dying).

Yes, we experience that “rope burn” when someone we love pulled out of our physical experience. And yes, I believe there is celebration for their arrival on the next plane. They move on—and into the wings of love. Peace.
