Forgiveness is the means by which the fear of death is overcome….Forgiveness lets the body be perceived as what it is—a simple teaching tool to be laid by when learning is complete, hardly changing him who learns at all. A Course in Miracles

God is all that is. We are all God.God Is All That Is

Last week someone I’ve known many years killed himself. The details are not important. But our perception of those details, and of the death itself, requires some soul-searching.

Our society assumes it is natural for us to fear death—no matter how, when, where, why it occurs. After all, conventional wisdom suggests death is the end of us—THE END. We are no more.

Those of you reading this probably do not believe death is the end of us. Yet we fear it. Why? And why do we criticize and judge those who commit suicide?

My spirit guides have said every death is a suicide. If we believe we create our own realities, then we must believe we also create the timing and manner of our “death.” There are no victims, there are no villains. There are only creators and co-creators.

We are all God. God is all that is. God is eternal. We are eternal. There is no end. There is no death. There is only life eternal.

I’m travelling as I write this. So I thought it would be a good time to review a post we wrote a while back, Is Life ALWAYS Worth Living?
