“Every living thing, animal or human, or tree experiences that which is called death, with no exception. You’ve all accepted that one a long time ago. Spirit, which is who we really are, or Source, is eternal. So what death must be is a changing of the perspective of that Eternal Spirit. If I am standing in my physical body and am consciously connected to that Eternal Spirit, then I’m Eternal in nature and I need not ever again fear any endedness, because, from that perspective I understand that there is not any of that.” — Abraham [Excerpted from Albany, NY – Saturday, May 6th, 2000]
Everyone will experience what Abraham calls “A change of perspective” when they move into the non-physical sphere of life. Our perspective of Life changes instantaneously and if any fear was present it automatically dissolves into its native nothingness. Where will we go? Nowhere specific unless we make the choice to do a little exploring, but it is all here and now. What will we do? Gravitate to where we will engage in conversations and experiences which are stimulating and enjoyable. Will we be greeted by those once familiar to us? We will have access to the essence from which they expressed life, and they will have access to the pure, positive and wonderful essence that is who and what we truly are. Will I have to meet *#@%& again? Perhaps, but good ‘ole *#@%& will now be fully immersed in his/her God self and no longer the SOB I chose to see in them. Will I again return to this dimension? Probably and for a variety of reasons that will again be so very clear to us. Will I again be able to see who I once was and where? Initially it will be a point of interest, but soon it will no longer be of interest for what is, is much more important and fun.
“Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don’t want.” — Abraham [Excerpted from Asheville, NC – Saturday, September 5th, 1998]
Worry carries with it an energy, as does everything. It has a vibrational imprint, almost like a bar or QR (quick response) code carries with it a point of connectivity with something. In this case the “something” is read by the Perpetual Scanner called God, and worry is a “message” that is asking for more that is same. “It’s almost midnight and my daughter, who is out on her first date with a boy I hardly know, has not come home or called…he promised me she would be brought home no later than ten! What do you want me to do?” Of course, the mind easily shifts to elements of worry, concern, apprehension and foreboding. However, what we can do is inject into the moment the awareness of what the use of our imagination is doing, and to make the choice to consciously shift the focus of the energy of our imagination as we envision what we really want to have happen, and then to sit (or pace) in the energy of this redesigned point of focus. Other things might not be as momently challenging as a daughter long overdue, but the Principle is the same. Everything carries with it a vibrational imprint that is asking for a connection with more of a something. Pause to remember what is really happening, and then endeavor, with a different energy pattern, to shift to something that carries with it an element of optimism and buoyancy. You/we are creators of our own lives, and imagination is but one of the tools we are perpetually using.
“Have you accomplished your point of attraction deliberately or by default? Have you prepared the climate or atmosphere around you by deliberately meditating; by quieting your mind; by looking for thoughts that feel good; by making lists of things that please you? Or is your point of attraction a knee-jerk response to something someone else said; or to something you are observing around you? What is the reason for your point of attraction? Why are you thinking the thoughts that you are thinking? Are you doing it on purpose? Or are you doing it by default?” — Abraham [Excerpted from North Los Angeles, CA – Saturday, February 22nd, 2014]
This is a reminder of an exercise that could be made part of our day because it is so easy. Upon awakening close to the time we want to rise and shine, to purposefully and consciously choose a focus upon something that feels good, in other words, something of our choice, not what we remember from the previous night’s news or similar…something of our choice that has the side effect of good and happy feelings. The analogy of being a thermostat or thermometer is another analogy that says the same thing. A thermometer bases its reporting on what is fed into it by the environment; a thermostat creates the environment we choose. We in Unity often speak the phrase, Life (our) is consciousness (ours expressing back to us). With today’s quote, our point of attraction upon which our moment, day and beyond is formed can be knee jerk or deliberate. Deliberate is better.
“Make fun of death. We are as dead as it gets, and we are fully aware of this joyous experience. We are with you every time you allow it. We are in every singing bird and in every joyful child. We are part of every delicious pulsing in your environment. We are not dead, and neither will you ever be! You will just get up, one day, and get out of the movie.” — Abraham Excerpted from Boulder, CO – Saturday, June 11th, 2005
This is a subject that usually we don’t want to entertain, but it is an event that we each face many times, and Unity would echo the Abraham understanding of an non-event as seen within an eternal and cosmic sense. Death is such a non-event because it means cessation, and we never cease to be. Certainly we can miss someone, but we are learning to trust, more and more, the process that brings us in and out of the physical experience. Just think how many times we have entered and exited and then exited and entered again and again. Why here in this physical dimension? The physical provides so much more contrast out of which to make choices and decisions. We are always in Oneness, we are always in God. To borrow a something from someone, “God is togetherness.” This means that if we have a wonderful relationship with someone to trust that Love will again bring us back together.
“What you do is miniscule in comparison with what you choose to think, because your vibration is so much more powerful and so much more important.” — Abraham [Excerpted from Boston, MA – Sunday, October 20th, 1996]
A reminder that is so very important. While we all “do” things in our world, we are reminded that the energy of doing is miniscule as compared with the energy of thought, and especially focused thought. This is one of the important reasons that affirmations are important, and why setting a time apart when we focus on affirmations to the extent that they then become part of a stored energy that can be brought to the surface easily. You are a co-creator and you create via thought, not doing. Accept that this is the way things are and with a conscious cooperation with this process is to be found the Energy that can change your life.
