“How should one look forward to death?” A student asked the teacher who they all regarded as wise.

“How does one look forward to the goal of any journey?” He answered. “With hope and
expectation. It is the same with the end of this earthly journey. In the next world, each person will find themselves freed from many of the disabilities under which they now suffers. Those who have passed on through death, have a sphere of their own. It is not removed from ours; their work, the work of the Kingdom of God, is the same as ours; but their work is sanctified from what we call ‘time and space.’
Time with us is measured by the sun. When there is no more sunrise, and no more sunset, that kind of time does not exist. Those who have ascended have different attributes from those who are still on earth, yet there is no real separation. Space here is measured by physical limitations. In the next world there are no physical limits.” Then, he paused and looked around the room to see who might be listening.

“In prayer there is a mingling of station, a mingling of condition,” he continued. “Pray for them as they pray for you! When you unaware of it, and are in a receptive attitude, they are able to make suggestions to you if you have a difficulty, if you need assistance, need an answer. This sometimes happens in sleep. but there is no physical interaction. What may seem like such an interaction has a different explanation. It is not possible to put this into limited human language, our language is limited to physical matters. We will understand when we get there.”

“Conditions in the next world are as different from conditions here as conditions in the womb are different from life after birth. The embryo in the womb is unable to comprehend or describe conditions here, its experience is so limited there. In the same way, we can’t describe or understand conditions in the next world because of our limitations here. It is all one reality, just different conditions, vastly different conditions.”

“That is enough for today,” he concluded. “We all now need time to pray on this, to pray for understanding.” He then rose and left the room.

He hoped they had listened, had paid attention. He had no way of knowing. But, if he left the room, they would stop asking questions. If they stopt asking questions, they might begin to think and meditate. If they thought and meditated, they would certainly gain knowledge and understanding. It is not possible to learn when your mouth is open spouting words. If only people would accept the value of silence and patience, they would learn so much more. He could only teach them a little, they had to allow the Spirit to teach them, but they couldn’t listen if they were talking.

He retired and prayed that they would want understanding enough to take the time to listen to the knowledge from the universe. If only they would, their lives would be so much better. But, he couldn’t tell them everything, that is not the way to teach. One must be an example. Not everyone would learn. Not everyone was capable of learning. He had done the best he could. It was almost time for him to leave. What a relief that would be! What joy. What joy he contemplated the end of this physical journey. He was ready. He was ready to leave. He had done his best. He could die now. He was ready.
