I have been exploring in recent days the topic of death — or what I call our Continuation Day... The good news and the incredible news is that we do not leave beloved ones behind. And so, there is no emotional pain involved in death for the Soul that has died.
I have observed that many, many spiritually minded people feel that life is a process of discovery. Just this past week someone wrote to me of a personal challenge they were facing, and ended their letter with, "Well, we'll just have to wait to see what God has in store."
You feel the way you wish to feel — and most people think it is the other way around: that you feel the way you feel, whether you wish to or not. They speak about being "overcome" by their feelings. Yet Conversations with God tells us that all feelings are chosen.
In the last issue of this Bulletin, published just before New Year's Eve, I made the point that we humans living in the 21st century are very lucky. We have achieved a very high level of Consciousness.
Conversations with God tells us that we are three-part beings, made up of Body, Mind, and Soul. In the weeks ahead here in the Bulletin, I would like to explore together the pathway to the Soul, because I get many questions about the Soul, and how to "get there."
I think we have to differentiate between fear and caution. When I have said in earlier entries here that I no longer have much fear of anything I did not mean to indicate that I never exercise caution. Indeed, just the opposite is true. In my life I often exercise caution.
