You Can’t Kill Life
Dear Blessed One,
Okay, I know that seems like a bold statement. However, in my experience, it’s true.
Through leaving my body numerous times, I discovered that this stream of consciousness continues to call my particular form back into “reality” over and over until some evolutionary leap happens. It’s not over until Spirit has completed what it has come to experience in the body.
I’ll explain this the best I can.
In 1983, I was a passenger in the back seat of a car when the driver lost control. After a couple of 360’s, then hitting a tree rear-end first, I was catapulted through the rear window at approximately 80 mph. After flying through trees, my clothing shredded and one shoe torn from my foot (leather strap around the ankle was all that was left), my body finally landed far from the car.
People were frantically calling my name in search of me. I was responding, though the body was not moving or making any sounds. It was then that I realized I was no longer attached to the form. I was free! Flash forward; all of a sudden I was in the hospital and wondering how (and why) I was back in the body.
Years later I had similar experiences with a drug overdose, and then three years later again, when I attempted suicide.
It took another twelve years or so and many experiences of other dimensional realities to realize that life doesn’t die. We can try to kill it; we can even experience someone’s “death”. However, if it’s not time for an evolutionary leap into the next level of consciousness (whatever that may be), the one who is seemingly dying is only departing from this dimension, and awakening in another that looks very much like the one they just left (yes, with you in it).
These deaths are opportunities for accelerated growth, or awakening. Even though each one brings us closer to the conscious awareness of the infinite stream of Life that we are, the growth process can be difficult and quite painful.
The many layers of disidentification with ego is a kind of death, creating greater awareness of higher essence without the seeming death of form.
I woke up from my out of body experiences (death) with a, “Whew, that was close!” Actually, in one case, I was angry that I had to come back.
Consciousness, God, Source is infinite…and ever expanding. We are the universe conscious of itself. Our seeming realities are only the dimly lit surface of an incredible and vast sea of consciousness.
Once you have a direct experience of the bigger picture, you’ll see how much of an illusion normal reality is.
A story is told of a man who came to Babaji and asked to be one of his disciples. Babaji said, “You aren’t ready.” The man said, “But I’ve been looking for you for so long. If I cannot be your disciple, I might as well jump off this cliff, for my life is over.” Babaji said, “Do it then.” So the man did.
Then, Babaji told a couple of his other disciples to go retrieve the man’s body from the bottom of the cliff. When they had returned, and had laid the man out in front of the Master, Babaji touched him on the heart, and he was restored. As he opened his eyes and looked into the face of his Guru, Babaji said, “Now you are ready to be my disciple.”
Babaji knew that life was indestructible (and apparently wanted his disciple to know that too).
We can surrender all ideas and attempts of controlling life because it’s not ours to control. Whatever is transitioning, transpiring, or transforming is in perfect order.
It’s okay, relax. You can’t kill life.
Much Love and Blessings to You,

And to die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier.” ~ Walt Whitman
