On Death And The Internet

Once upon a time, before the world began to understand what an amazing time this is to be alive, about the ascension, about the consciousness shift, I knew on subconscious levels that death was just an illusion. I used to use the analogy with people that death is very similar to something we already experience and wholly accept - it's analogous to someone moving out of town. Of course this was met with either outright scoffing or quiet disagreement, but I have always been adamant that death is nothing like society was teaching us that it was.

In the 'old days', those days before the internet (omg how long ago was that?! some kids don't know there was a time before the internet!) when someone left town it was almost as if they had ceased to exist. The only way to keep connected was via the regular postal system (snail-mail in today's vernacular), or by very expensive long-distance phone calls. If the someone who moved away was a casual friend, as opposed to a dear friend or relative, we might start out with all good intentions of keeping in touch, but after awhile, very often the communications slowed and often eventually stopped. For all intents and purposes, as far as our lives were concerned, they had ceased to exist.

Depending on how much the someone who moved meant to us, we might have experienced both excitement for them and their new adventure, and potentially great sadness at the thought of not being able to see them so much anymore. While keeping in touch via mail and phone was nice, we all knew it was a poor substitute for actually being together, and an especially poor substitute for being together on a regular basis.

But despite all that, we knew that that someone who was leaving, or left, still existed. We knew that they did not 'fall out of existence' simply because they moved out of town. We knew that we could contact them at any time, or they us, and we could either continue to stay 'in contact' with them or not. We had a choice in the matter of whether to stay in contact with them or not, and we understood and accepted that choice as normal and natural.

With the implementation of—and now the universal acceptance of—the internet, it has become even easier to 'keep in touch' with those who have moved away. In fact, it's easier than it ever has been to have true and loving relationships with people that we've never even met physically! When people move out of town we have our sadness that they won't be around and things will change, but we easily and readily accept that we can still be in contact with those who have moved away (or live somewhere else) whenever we wish, and even visit them or they us, whenever we wish.

So I have to ask: how is death any different? If you really could understand and accept, as many are coming to with this great shift in consciousness, that those you love and care about who have died have done nothing more than 'move out of town' wouldn't it be easier to 'stay in contact' with them?

Through telepathy, which is how most of the rest of reality interacts with one another, we can easily continue to communicate with those who have 'died'. Which is to say, they simply moved out of the physical 3D reality of Earth to continue their adventure in some other reality and/or density. It doesn't mean anything other than that. We have as much ability to communicate with them as we would if they simply moved out of town.

The difference is, if they are still on Earth we already know how to communicate with them. We know how to use the internet and cell phones and the postal system to stay in touch. What's different with death is that, firstly, we don't believe that we can communicate with them or they with us, and secondly, we don't know how to 'plug in' to the non-physical version of the internet. Once we accept this process as normal and natural, and practise using the non-physical internet, we'll wonder why we needed all those machines and wires in the first place!

The next time you find yourself upset, sad, or even curious about how someone in your life who died is doing, ask yourself what you would do if they had simply moved out of town. How would you communicate with them? Would you send an email? Would you call? Would you send a letter or a greeting card?

Imagine that in that moment of desiring to communicate, you have already done so. Now just be quiet and listen. And feel. Realize that the connection has already been made. You've effectively sent the email, or dialed the phone, and now all there is to do is listen and feel for the communication that comes back to you. Trust that the non-physical communication network works every bit as well—better in fact—than the physical one of internet connections and cell towers. Know that those that you love have not gone anywhere, they are as real as they ever were, and every bit as easy to stay in contact with.

But don't think that you're going to connect with them in anger. Or fear. Or sadness. Or upset. While all of these emotions can be—and are—carried on the invisible wires of the non-physical communication network, the real value of that network is for communicating in love. And in appreciation. And in joy. Send out your thoughts of appreciation and love, send out your memories of fun times and great experiences, and then sit back and enjoy the communication that comes back to you from those that, once upon a time, you thought were lost to you forever. Don't expect them to respond to your upset, allow them to respond to your joy.

We can already meet with those who have passed out of the earth dimension in our dream excursions, in our thoughts, and in our meditations. While we are always able to connect non-physically, someday—and I trust that day is not so far in the future was we might suppose—we are going to be able to see these people again physically, if we and they wish. We will be able to create and don a body in order to be together in-the-flesh if that is what we choose to do. Soon enough, no longer will we be tied to one body and one physical incarnation. We are beginning to remember that such things are possible and doable, and I see many who are already re-membering how to accomplish it. Grand times are upon us, and all it takes to bring marvelous things further into reality is being open to the possibility.
