Are you a free spirit?

We are all spirits, with a body and mind living in a physical world.  We were born into this world, bound to what we have been taught but then something happens.  We  i-am-free-spirit-1-638want to know the truth and begin seeking.  The more we seek, the more free we become from the programing.

A free spirit chooses not to be bound or conform to the norms of society or their belief systems. They have a unique understanding about how our society and cultures have indoctrinated and programmed us since birth. A free spirit is seeking the truth, in their own way and their own time.

Jesus was a free spirit. He did not belong to any group and he certainly did not conform to any  belief system. His message was of love and enlightenment.

Another free spirit, Buddha was a prince that could have been king. He left the comforts of a palace life to seek enlightenment for the next 7 years. .

 A modern day free spirit is Bruce H. Lipton, PhD, a former atheist. He did  coolnsmart-16361groundbreaking work in the field of New Biology; radically changing our understanding of life. It shows that genes and DNA do not control our biology; that instead DNA is controlled by signals from outside the cell, including the energetic messages emanating from our positive and negative thoughts. Dr. Bruce Lipton delivers one of the most important messages you will ever hear in this video. 

Free spirits pave the way so others may follow. With love and compassion they serve humanity. Free spirits look within to know their true-selves. We are all spirits, but only those that choose to set themselves free are truly free spirits.

Death and the After life

Death and the after-life is something we will all face eventually.   Our limited understanding is guided by oursivananda-33019 belief system;   what we subconsciously learned and consciously taught.  It is the school of life, with countless confusion and distortions with so many belief systems and religions.   It may be as simple as to what you believe will be your reality. 

Death is the release of our life force in order to continue our spirit journey.  The ancient chinese described qi as “life force”,  Hindu called it  prana, Christians and Jews refer to it as the soul and the Muslims call it Rūḥ, our immortal self. Gnostics called it the divine spark;   spirit, essense and the list goes on.

Our life force is who we are, energy within our bodies, feeling all the aches and pains as we age, physically and emotionally.  We are trying to understand our purpose.  We learn and practice tai chi, chi gong, yoga, walk, jog and meditate to cultivate our life force just to face the daily challenges and BxGKxMSIIAA6IXMchoices. We look around and wonder if this it, why are we here!  Based on the Law of One our purpose is to learn the ways of love with wisdom, and each of us have our own special lessons to learn.  At the end of our life we have a “life review”. If you attained 51 percent positive, you will leave 3rd density and advance to the the 4th density. Seven densities , realms, dimensions or heavens are terms used in religious and mythology ancient texts.  

If you do not make the 51 percent positive then you will have to redo 3rd density.  Your reincarnation   can be anywhere in the universe.   Even  Emanuel Swedenborg, the  eighteenth-century mystic and spiritual explorer, spoke of the purpose of death.  He inspired some the world’s greatest minds and souls like Helen Keller, D.T. Suzuki, and Ralph Waldo Emerson,to name a few.

Law of One also provides insight on death which states, ” the process of the physical 1309-choose-to-see-death-spiritual-quotes-to-live-bydeath is as we have described before: one in which there is aid available and the only need at death is the releasing of that entity from its body by those around it and the praising of the process by those who grieve. By these means may the mind/body/spirit which has experienced physical death be aided, not by the various perceptions of careful and repeated rituals.” 

Near Death experiences  (NDE)  also provides insight and some sort of understanding of the afterlife.   People that have experienced NDE sometimes describe a floating maxresdefault (6)sense of freedom from pain and of complete wellbeing;  or they had unusual abilities, such as being able to see walls and also see through them, and being able to “hear” the unspoken thoughts of the people nearby;  They sometime say they experienced a “life review” while at the same time, they re-viewed, and experienced being on the receiving end of, all their actions throughout life; Some went beyond the light, seeing cities of light and knowledge. When they chose to return, it was because of a love connection with one or more living people. The other half say they didn’t choose to return: They either were told or made to return, or they were just suddenly “back” in their bodies. 

Physical death releases our life force; our final escape from this realm.   It is  interesting to 16cc381c8b27c7abd1b7cbf79c39a86cnote how emotions around us  affect even the death process. Our thoughts, emotions and actions create our reality not only in this world but also the next. Many seek gnosis,  the knowledge of spiritual mysteries,  to better understand our situation. Esoteric knowledge of spiritual truth was held by the ancient Jews, Christians and Greeks.  They believed it was  essential to salvation.

What stands out for me to be essential is the emotion of love, the emotion that conquers all things.  Also our intentions regarding our thoughts, emotions and actions.  If we fear death, a negative emotion, then death may be exactly that.  That is why we are here to learn about love and the wisdom to use it.

Our ancient teachers had much wisdom to say about death and immorality.
