To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure. ~ J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone


As I’m sure most of you know, Dr. Wayne Dyer made his transition Saturday, two days ago. I did not use the word “died,” because none of us ever die. We just change form.

I don’t have a hard time with people dying, even those close to me. And I have little or no fear of my own death. But, for some reason, the news of Wayne’s passing shook me. I was startled by my emotional reaction.

So I went for a long walk, and Spirit helped me figure it out.

Actually, it was quite simple. They reminded me of something we wrote in our Spirit Oracle Cards:

Your physical death, no matter how you have lived your physical life, is a re-birth into light and love. Always. Death is no more to be feared than life. They are not so different from each other. Both are new beginnings, new steps on your journey of eternal growth.

Life is not dangerous. Life—and death—are perfectly safe. You live in a safe universe. The only “danger” is you do not think you’re safe. The true meaning of death, at one point in your human evolution, got so scrambled, you literally lost it. It became something you never intended. You began to see death as “the end” of you. Your churches taught you death was even a punishment for “sin.” And yet they held out the hope you would go to something better after you died.

No matter what the process or manner of physical death—painful or peaceful—the result is always the same. You re-emerge into what some would call “heaven.” A more accurate description would be “eternal life.” All life is eternal. Death is simply the doorway to eternal life. Death is your friend.

Godspeed, Wayne!
