I’m reading a book by Raymond Moody “Glimpses of Eternity” (lifeafterlife.com). It is his research about people who have share deathbed visions/experiences. These people are not the dying but the loved ones who are engaged with the dying person. This was new information for me. I have been at bedside when a patient has taken their last breath and never experienced any of these things, perhaps it has to do with the emotional bonds, I don’t know. In any case, it is a wonderful book about the mysteries of dying. It got me to thinking about how often we wish to know what comes next, the search and longing for answers. I have had glimpses into Eternity by other means, lucid dreams, synchronicities, signs and symbols etc.
I realized when reading this book that part of the Magic of Life is the longing for the Mysteries to unfold. Often people who have had NDE or near-death experiences state they cannot fully explain the experience because our human mind cannot comprehend the experience and we simply don’t have the verbiage to explain it. “The Peace Beyond All Understanding” comes to mind, that the answers to our questions are so complex that in our human form we are too limited to truly understand.
I love the fact that there will always be more to learn, to explore. That what we believe now and has been proven by science or experience can change and transform as our understanding unfolds. How boring our lives would be if we knew everything, if the Mystery and the Magic disappeared. I am grateful for all the experiences of Spirit that I have glimpsed. Life can be unimaginably challenging and painful at times, our heart shattered into a million pieces of Light. The Light may scatter for a brief moment, but it always finds its way back. It reforms a stronger more tender heart, once broken you will never feel the same as you are transformed deeper into the Mystery of Life and the Afterlife. Growth and Expansion of our Soul is the side effect of Life, it is why we came here. There is Divine purpose to all of this, even if we can only get a glimpse.
