For far too long
a hundred years or so
we’ve left true values behind
in the ego’s race for want.
What we have is never enough
greed became the champion
and, money its insatiable goal.
Once I was a part of it all
which left me quite uneasy
deep down in my soul
(there had to be more to life
and then I learned how to love
…to truly love
the kind of unselfish love where you
know you would gladly die to let
the ones you love, live.
My values changed.
if the world should crumble
and end times battle lines
are clearly being drawn
it won’t bother me too much.
I surrender to the will
of the universe
which has always been stronger
than the ego of man
and hope the spirit within
will live on in a new much
more compassionate, reality.

Dying used to frighten me but after Cathie passed away both Chloe and I had many, independent events occur which couldn’t be denied. We both separately see light orbs in two different houses including the one we live in now. We hear noises, things will fall over for no reason. A bang of a drawer closing and such. We feel something touch us and raise our hair, or the tiny hairs on our skin, as if a hand just brushed it.
So she wouldn’t be scared we were being haunted, when she was nine, I would never tell her anything of what happened when she wasn’t home and, it wasn’t until she would tell me about things that were happening to her that I told her it was happening to me too. Now, we just say out loud ‘Whoever you are, go with God and be in peace.’ I explained that if this was something that meant us harm, we would know it because it would try to scare us and drive us out, so don’t be scared. We’ve both often wondered if it’s Cathie.
I read so much and have learned so much over the years, love drives everything. And, I truly feel that when our body dies, our soul leaves just at the point of death and, depending on whether it has learned all that it came here to experience it either occupies another body to carry on or, it moves onto its next level of spirituality. (Apparently scientists have weighed the bodies of dying people who have consented, and at the point of their last breath, their weight decreases minutely and, they think this is the soul exiting the body so that it can carry on) And having gone deep enough within to have seen my own light, I can honestly say, I don’t fear death anymore.
Of course, that is not to say I don’t think about the manner in which it comes. Asleep in bed would be the best way for me but, Que sera, sera. (What will be, will be)
I do personally feel that if this planets Doomsday does arrive, the spirit within those humans who have tried to deny ego and have learned what unconditional love is, will be the ones that will live on spiritually.
Long explanation but this is just some of what makes me ‘tick’
‘God has no religion’ is a quote by that beautiful soul Mahatma Gandhi
**We are all entitled to our own beliefs and what we are comfortable in believing is our truth. My truth may not be yours.
As Mary pointed out: ‘Greed has existed since the origin of man’ yes… but, I am speaking of the big corporate greed that exists now. The greed behind all governments which really controls who eats, who gets aid and, who is expendable and yes, also greed of individuals who want what they want and don’t care about anyone else or how they get it.
