The Nine Lives of One Man
No I'm not a cat, but to those people who come across my circumstances, they seem to think that I have nine lives. Lets see; I've been shot, ran over, fractured my skull, operated on various times, and am still walking and talking. All of these things have happened to me and have been well documented. I personally feel these incidents are sort of a fast forward- if you will, into advanced reality. During my stay on this plane of existence, "this time", I various tasks to accomplish;
Look after my family, and close personal friends (which I consider family anyway).
2. Educate myself so that I may train others, even when others are elders in mortal years.
3. reason I think for my resilient existence is; Prove that ALL faiths can work together in perfect harmony, while respecting one an others beliefs. The tricky part is to classify and/or separate the groups, that exert opposite practices, requiring mortal obligation, or opposite sacrificial rituals.
4th. reason for my purpose on this planet is; Prove that God has separate meanings for all of us. When God created man, he did it out of a longing to share his works that he had bestowed upon the earth... how his creation of a flower, or the Sequoia forest, or a humming bird, one small miracle that unfolds into a master plan that revolves around a never ending cycle of self regeneration.
When I died the first thing that happened to me was; I felt like I had just woke up in unfamiliar surroundings, then I realized where I was, this was the realization that I received, combined with sudden awareness of every living soul around me, beginning at my immediate center and flowing outward/inward.
My experience was manifest in an ambulance en route to Lexington Ky, my first realization was that I was part of a larger picture, then I sensed the three souls in the ambulance with me, not only their presence, their love, their hearts, their emotions, feelings, senses-physical and mental. I heard their thoughts, I felt their caring hands, I looked through each of their eyes, and saw not only their immediate physical future, but their past as well. I also noted the animals around the ambulance, an angry bus driver in Seattle, a lady killing an annoying spider in Ripley, WV, a bug hitting a train in Oklahoma.
All of these feelings I felt in a split second, but seemed like an eternity. I felt love, hate, famine, awe, destruction, revolution, caring, hope and a barrage of other feelings. What was so funny is; I realized the purpose of it all. I understood the meaning of famine, the purpose of confinement, the glory of opportunity. Why doesn't God stop the violence? Because God didn't start it in the first place. You see when God created us in his own image, he literally gave us the power to choose our own destiny, but not the destiny of others. The world you live in now was created solely by you.
Yes you chose all of the hurt, all of the violence, all of the pain and suffering. You also chose; rewards for your sacrifices. The love and caring, smile of your loved ones, the smell of the roses, the touch of another, the freedom to be free, the wisdom to look ahead, and the fail/safe system so you wouldn't be confused by it all. God is our mentor, teacher, guide. He loves us, and wants to watch us grow. He knows we can't walk without skinning our knees, he knows we can't love without the knowledge of hate. He sees the future when there is no future up ahead. The end result is a like soul mate to share what he has created. How wonderful it would be to co-create a butterfly. To supervise a sunset!! To feel his warm, loving hands on your back for a job well done!! Most religions are so naive. Just think, in ten lifetimes, one soul could not accumulate enough knowledge to even say ga-ga or goo-goo to the Supreme Being. Look at the stars, the endless universe, we see in three dimensions, imagine how many dimensions there are, just in the physical world.
As we learn, as we grow, we will be rewarded ten times ten for every forward step, and penalized ten times for every backward step. Most people would say, "well how will we ever reach our final destination if this is the case? " With God there is no time/space, only love. His patience stretches the far reaches of the pluraverse. Sure, he could say "presto you now know what I know." Would that accomplish his ultimate goal of companionship? No!! Look at your existence, what variables that are tossed in front of you, mere chance? I think not!!!! He helps us by teaching, understanding, and not by interfering. When you finally realize something that has fallen into your pathway, by no means of your own, you will be on the path of enlightenment and the road to discovery. Open your eyes, to just one plane of existence, lets talk numbers for example. Look at how numbers influence your everyday life. We could not exist without them. How about music? Look at all of the messages that are sent by just one song. Feelings, where would you and I be without feelings? Physical reality, what would life be like if, we could not touch anything? Perception, now here is a word within itself. If we teach ourselves using all of these common, everyday planes of existence, we will succeed in accelerated advancement and knowledge accumulation. In short our search for knowledge will grow, by the power of a A2 . Perception, when you get out of bed tomorrow morning, before your feet hit the floor, imagine what it would be like if, there were no floor. Just another person on a life raft, in the middle of the ocean, with no food. How about the smell of coffee? All of the simple, everyday things we all take for granite, is misery to another soul. Lets look at the other side of the coin; What about the pain you feel every morning just getting out of bed, the feet pain of associated with broken bones/arthritis. Just by shifting our perception of how another could be worse. Better yet, how we have so much to be thankful for, and how our lives could possibly become, is the stuff miracles are made of!! If you believe within your heart that God can heal your sore aching back in the morning, he can, and will!!! All that it takes is faith. If you believe that the pain will never subside, it will not. Attitude is just a word. Faith is a way of life. If every morning the dog brings you your paper, do you have faith he will do it tomorrow? If you never watch a sunset, does that mean the sun wont set tomorrow? We all live and breathe as one common soul, with a thousand eyes and ears, and one collective awareness.
When we are reunited at his side, armed with the knowledge of untold ages, and perceptions, we can truly appreciate the value of a tree.
