You can lie to yourself. You can lie to others — but you can’t lie to me and you surely can’t lie to the one who created the breath you are when your not inside a body.
I had started noticing the flow of love from the hearts of my friends prior to when my close friend came back into the room. His outpouring of love in the moment of his grief washed over me like a flood. This was a subject I had been trying to talk about with my friends. I was the Manager of a halfway house for the homeless. My young friends were residents between the ages of 18 and 24. Young men with their lives ahead of them, yet they were caught up in their worldly resentments creating a mental blockage.
Prior to my 1988 NDE — I had been working on the understanding I had received from my experiences in the aftermath of my 1978 NDE. I felt there was a shadow body and mind (0f the flesh) and there was a light body and mind (of the spirit.) In the heart of the spirit and soul — there was a divine flow of love regardless of the mental attitude within the physical mind. I felt you could get lost from the sight of your soul — but your soul was never lost from the sight of the ‘divine love of creation.’ When I saw the outpouring of love hidden away in the hearts of my friends I felt it was conformation of the many private talks I had with my friends prior to my ‘death experience’ where my physical body was laying on the ground. When I got back inside my body again — I told my friends,
“You can lie to yourself. You can lie to others — but you can’t lie to me and you surely can’t lie to the one who created the breath you are when your not inside a body.”
I told them that on the other side — love wasn’t something you could keep hidden away inside yourself. It was something you could see, hear, taste, feel and touch. It was like a ‘six sense’ perception that came alive and had a life all its own. I told them that love was the life force that flowed through the veins of our Creator. It was a natural inheritance we received in the heart of our souls and spirits. You couldn’t deny yourself that feeling on the other side.
I learned afterwards that the word ‘love’ is a tricky word when it comes to the younger minds. (The 18 to 24 y/0’s that I was dealing with.) I didn’t have any worldly aspect in mind and the word “Love” was the closest thing that seemed to replicate the total feeling embraced on the other side during the NDE. Human words actually pale in comparison to the feeling that comes from the source of our inner creation. I felt the young minds were too concerned about love between humans in a spiritual context being confused with the wrong sort of love. I told one friend,
“On the other side — it is never wrong to love someone when it comes from your heart. On the other side, it is wrong NOT to love someone from your heart.”
One of the last messages the spiritual escort that accompanied me back from the light gave to me prior to my spirit embodying the physical again was to help remind others of the Love or our Divine Creator. The way the message was given to me was odd and unusual compared to all my experiences with the ‘divine spirits’ during my previous near death experiences. I wasn’t used to them speaking to me in ‘plain English.’ The spirit guides would always converse using what I called the ‘language of home.’ I would always have to plead for them to speak words in English for the sake of my human mind. If I wanted to bring certain knowledge back into the world with me — I was asking for them to give me an English translation. It was very, very hard to get them to budge and give me English words. So — it was shocking when I was about to get into the body and the ‘spirit escort’ called out to me and stated this in plain English. I just laughed. I had spent a decade trying to find a better word than ‘l-o-v-e’ when it comes to divine feeling that Creator has for us as children.
So this was the message I tried to pass on to my friends. The One who created the life of us — the breath within — the soul hidden, the heart eternal — always has a love for us when we are caught up in the blindness and deafness of this world. It is up to us to search for it within our own selves.
