“Death, in and of itself, does not exist, for nothing ever dies. Death, as you call it, is the instantaneous moment of the soul transitioning from one form of energy into another. In this moment, we rise like the illustrious phoenix rebirthing into a new cycle.
Animals instinctively know how to transition from one form to another with ease and grace. It is the human who grips onto the intangible fear and guilt that makes this transition so difficult for them. Transition is a time of celebration and enlightenment. But because its rewards originate from beyond your known world, the mystery often stimulates fear in human beings.
Letting go requires compassion and self-forgiveness. It takes immense love and fortitude on the part of those who are not ready to forgive and let go of the past. Many are afraid to release the life they know, in exchange for the one they do not know. But know ye, there is no loss, only expansion.
Our immortal soul delights in taking on different forms as it spirals through its passages of experience, evolution, and expansion in constant metamorphosis. In human form, our soul assumes many roles as it develops through its eternal cycles of birth, the blooming of our passion, the manifestation of our gifts, the enjoyment of life and the rebirth into a glorious new level of consciousness.
Once you understand the magnificence of who you truly are, death then becomes a celebrated transition from one form to another, rising from the ashes like the phoenix in all of its glory.” ~Black Madonna~
