We are a spirit using a human body down here on earth to learn some life lessons.  So for this time we take on the human characteristics until it is our time to leave or die.   Some people believe in reincarnation some don’t.  I am not here to debate that.  I personally do believe in reincarnation from some very convincing facts.

Your spirit or higher self as some call it will always guide you in the right direction.  That is your gut feeling.  So even though you are here in this egotistical world you are still being quietly guided by YOU. YOU is spirit or higher self.  So the best thing to do when you want to hear YOU is be still.  Go quiet and you will here your inner voice.

As you travel through life you will come across different life lessons.  For example; if you feel you have a pattern in dating the wrong guys then ending up alone.  This is a life lesson that you will repeat until you learn from it and will not repeat the mistakes again.  This can be over several lifetimes.

As we come to the end of a lifetime, we prepare for death or the crossing over of spirit.  When my father passed over he was in the hospital.  We all knew that it was going to happen so they gave us a private room where we can be together, my 2 sisters, my brother and myself.  My mother had passed over 9 months prior.  My father passed on his birthday.  As his breathing started to get erratic we stood around his bed.  Now I thought that the spirit would leave the body from the head.  That was just my thinking.  Well as we watched my father, suddenly his head went grey, and then slowly it went down the chest, the stomach and out the feet.  His spirit literally stood up and walked away. Once that happened all breathing stopped. His breath i.e. spirit was gone.

In his lectures and books, Meister Eckhart Tolle teaches that there is no such thing as death.  There is no such thing as death because the spirit never dies.  I personally do not agree with that.  What is death? Death is the act of the spirit leaving the body and seizing breath. The dictionary meaning: the total and permanent cessation of all the vital functions of an organism.   The spirit lives on and never dies; just walks away; like my father’s spirit.  Actually leaving all the pain and suffering behind in the now dead body.

So do I believe there is death?  Yes

Then what exactly is death?  The act of the spirit leaving the body and seizing breath .

And you live on in spirit for your next adventure.
