LOVE BEYOND DEATH
Love beyond death? Yes, definitely! Love cannot die, for we are so much more than the product of coupling between a man and a woman. Our bodies result from that union, but our souls do not. They are of divine origin – reaching us from our Source when we are born and returning there when we die. Or so it seems to me (and countless others).
Once we have fulfilled our earthly purpose our physical remains enter our grave, while our spiritual essence is freed from the body that had restricted it. How thrilling that sense of freedom must be, especially if latterly our body was exhausted and maybe diseased! Imagine no longer being weighed down by it and how we must rejoice in our weightlessness!
Imagine too the joy of discovering our immortality. We’ve ‘died’, but are not dead. Life continues, except on a different level, now that we’ve learned the lessons we were on earth to learn.
There will be new lessons (and new births), but not yet. For now we can rest, remembering all that we’ve learned and holding fast to the love that we gave and earned. We don’t forget our loved ones, any more than they forget us. Love is eternal as well as being an integral part of our souls as we grow both in wisdom and in compassion on our path to perfection. It grows with us and has infinite capacity. And one of the wonders of so-called ‘death’ is that we can continue to watch over our loved ones while we wait for them eventually to join us in heaven.
