Words Of WisdomDeath is not the punishment but the reward. Birth is not the beginning of
life, but a continuation. Physical death is not the end of life, but a
continuation. One day we will realize the body is just a suit of
clothes. Who you really are is the immortal self just taking off the
suit of clothes. So one day, when someone dies, We will know it's just a
shadow that is gone.
The world needs the sense that we are in it altogether.
(What do you know for sure?) That God is real and that faith works.
(What do you believe in?) I believe in God, I believe in Jesus and I believe in love.
do you believe about death?) It's like a cloud in the sky. When the
cloud is not longer in the sky it doesn't mean the cloud has died. The
cloud is continued in other forms, like rain or snow or ice. So you can
recognize your cloud in her new forms. If you are very fond of a
beautiful cloud, and if your cloud is no longer there, you should not be
sad. Your beloved cloud might have become the rain calling on you,
"Darling, darling. Don't you see me in my new form?" and then you will
not be struck with grief and despair. Your beloved one continues
always.Meditation helps you to recognize her continued presence in new
