Dying Is the Easiest Thing You Will Ever Do by John Cali and Spirit

Dying is a spiritual and psychological necessity, for after a while the exuberant, ever-renewed energies of the spirit can no longer be translated into flesh….The self outgrows the flesh. ~ Seth, channeled by Jane Roberts

Our title is taken from a discussion on death in the movie, Tuning In. A few years ago I would have thought those words were absolute nonsense. But not any longer.

Yesterday I was reading Adventures of the Soul, a new book by James Van Praagh, the famous psychic medium. James was a good friend of Debbie Ford, a wonderful teacher and author who died last year. I’m sure many of you are familiar with James’ and Debbie’s work.

Debbie had been sick a long time, and knew she was dying. Like many of us, she had concerns about her inevitable death. For one thing, she didn’t want to leave her young son behind.

Although he was not physically with Debbie the night she died, James was communicating with her telepathically. He helped her feel comfortable just letting go so she could move on. Later that night she did move on.

The next morning Debbie, now in spirit, came to James. Here’s part of what she said to him:

“Oh my, it was so easy!….I am free, James! I am so free! I cannot believe how obsessed I was about my body!….Tell everyone not to be so involved in physical things. It makes it harder to let go at the end. Tell everyone that as a soul you are a part of the ‘oneness of the wholeness’!”

Here are a few words about death and dying my spirit guides have given us over the years:

  • When you fully remember who you are, your fears will vanish like the morning dew before the rising sun. That includes your fear of death.
  • There is no death, only life eternal.
  • When you leave your physical body you will know it’s not the end of you, only a new beginning.
  • That new beginning will be so familiar and joyful to you, for you’ve been there again and again.
  • You are love. You are God. Neither will ever die.
  • Fear is not who you are.
  • Let go of the fear–it’s an illusion, just as death is.
  • You live forever.

In this video, Abraham (via Esther Hicks) talks to a woman who’s terrified of death.

    Thank you John. I just love Abraham. So, is dying going to be the easiest thing I’ve ever done? I haven’t a clue, however…as a young adult, I was very fearful of death. Somewhere along the way, I lost that fear. Not sure how, but I’m looking forward to it. Yeah, sounds crazy, but I am. No, I love my life at present, and I’m looking forward to the journey ahead of me. There is something that makes more sense now though. About six weeks ago, I was on a camping trip by myself. You may know the area, John. Union Pass, near Fish Creek. I was heading home, but I had several people behind me, who seemed to be in a hurry. I wasn’t, so I pulled over, since I knew that there would be several hairpin turns ahead on this small dirt road. When I stopped, I could hear more vehicles up ahead coming from the other direction, so I decided to grab a bottle of water and sit a spell. I walked to the edge of the ridge where the trees had parted, like a window to the valley below. As I sat there, in the warmth of the sun, I could hear a hawk screech above me. Sure enough, there it was, soaring high above. White and blue flowers seemed to shine brightly around me. I breathed it all in. This is when I had a very unusual thought. Now, I’ve been through this neck of the woods for many years, since I was a kid, but I had never stopped here before. I had the feeling, that I had been here before. This day. I would turn around to see an old friend. My first horse Balou, and then my dog, April. I would saddle up and ride off with them. This is where I will wake up, when I die. I haven’t been able to shake that feeling off since it happened. I’m not afraid, although, there are many things I would like to do before I go….I had trouble sleeping tonight. I check my email, and there you were. Any ideas, comments, suggestions? What happened? I don’t understand it completely. I’ve never heard of anything like this happening to anyone.

      You’re most welcome, Damian.

      Like you, I feared death when I was much younger. But I’ve lost that fear now — and it sure makes life a lot more fun! So many folks — and I was one of them at one time — are so scared of death they never live.

      Thank you for sharing your recent experience at Union Pass. I’m not sure I understand your questions. I will say this, however: When we die we’re no longer limited by time and distance. So we can travel anywhere we wish. That would include, in your case, returning to Union Pass, if that’s what you want to do.

      Hope that helps.

      • Damian Purdy

        Thank you, John, I understand the ‘time’…thing. I just found it…disorienting? Not uncomfortable. I’ve had several events happen where I should of died, but something kept me safe. I’ve always had this feeling that I’m here to do something. I still have no idea what it is. It was strange, sitting there on that ridge. I felt very peaceful, joyful, very comfortable. I know that I’ve never been to that spot before, yet there was that feeling of…recognition and a deep understanding that I’m still trying to figure out, heh. I know it doesn’t make any sense, but I’m ok with that. The meaning will come clear when I’m ready. It is just that your post kinda hit something inside of me, like another piece of the puzzle was put into place.

        • John Cali

          You’re very welcome, Damian. I’m delighted you found another piece of the puzzle. I think we’re all putting the pieces into this puzzle we call life. Then, eventually we’ll fully remember who we are. And the puzzle will be complete.

    Thanks for sharing the wonderful Abraham video. I love the humorous way that Abraham presents his wise advice.
    Thanks, also, to your spirit guides for their comforting words. I love the phrase “your fears will vanish like the morning dew before the rising sun”.

    Thanks again, John.

    • John Cali

      You’re most welcome, Sarah. I too love Abraham’s irreverent perspective on death.

      I’m delighted you find my spirit guides’ words comforting — I do too. They’ve often said nothing is all that serious, including life and death.

      Thanks very much, Sarah, for sharing your thoughts.

    YOUR QUESTION WAS; What do you think? Is dying going to be the easiest thing you’ve ever done?

    Having been very close several times in this lifetime, and considering the concept of passing over and through, I honestly believe that it may indeed be the easiest thing I’ve ever done.

    At the same time, I’m not fond of pain, so I am seriously looking forward to a very quick passing. If I knew when it would be, I would put one foot over before the clock struck. (for those of you who wonder, I am being humorous here.)

    Currently, I am making great effort to stay the observer, to practice non-judgment, and to have all the joy I can muster. Loving animals and all of nature makes that much easier. How very blessed we are to be humans and have the wonderful opportunities we have to be free to make all our own choices.

    My father used to tell me that if I feared anything, I was to face it head on, or practice doing what I feared until I wasn’t afraid any more. That worked for me many times. I don’t know how you would do that with leaving the body, but it might just be as Abraham said – just die. Rather extreme I think. Maybe just let it go until you go.

    Blessings to you all!

    • John Cali

      Thanks very much, Mikala, for sharing your thoughts.

      I too have been close to dying several times. The only thing I clearly remember is I was not scared.

      So I also believe dying may well be the easiest thing we’ve ever done. And, as my spirit guides are fond of saying, most of us have had plenty of practice at dying through many lifetimes. 🙂

    In that case, what’s wrong with committing suicide?

    • John Cali

      Nothing, unless you’re using it as an escape from something you need to face before you die.

  5. Martha

    It’s being in a body that’s the challenge.

    Oh, My.



      • Martha

        WELLLLLLLLLLL I guess that’s what we had in mind when we all jumped at the chance to come here! Every single time!

        Still..some challenges are more fun that others…..so far… 😉

        I guess the dance is to be so light we see them all as fun.

        Okay…will get right on it.

        • John Cali

          Thanks, Martha. You have the perfect perspective — just be so light they’re all fun. 🙂

  6. Deb carroll

    Thank you so John for sharing this magnificent piece from Abraham!

    • John Cali

      You’re most welcome, Deb. That’s a pretty powerful — and realistic — explanation.
