Wisdom Blog Final Series 12: Life and Death
[Wisdom from Channeler Rana of Year 2150 AD: Chapter Twelve: LIFE AND DEATH: Booklet “The Prophetess, Conversations With Rana (and Jon Lake, Ph.D. Student, who went to sleep in 1976 and awoke 174 years into the future in a culture known as the Macro Society),” Published 1976] [EXCERPT from a larger collection of conversations compiled by Thea Alexander]
For thousands of years the words life and death have meant the beginning and the ending of everything. Of course, from a micro view the only life is that of the physical body and when that dies all is ended—forever.
However, wise ones throughout all ages have known that the physical body is merely a very temporary vehicle enabling the soul to experience the micro end of the m-M (micro-Macro) continuum of growth/evolution. Certainly most of a soul’s devolution and evolution process is spent in non-physical forms, which change, but they do not experience the unique limitations of physical existence.
The cruelest act of micro man was not murdering a body, but, rather, attempting to keep it alive during the incapacitating latter stages of its death. Even Christians and Muslims, who believed in a wondrous and delightful heaven, feared death and tried to postpone it as long as possible because their belief in hell was stronger.
The saddest moments for micro man were those associated with physical death and his attempts to avoid it. Your hospitals were crowded with souls, imprisoned in physical bodies, being denied the ultimate release and freedom of death. Your nursing homes for the aged were often prisons for souls trapped in paralyzed and/or vegetable-like bodies.
Euthanasia was considered a crime because even if the body was worthless, no micro person could trust another to make such an evaluation. Thus, your people forced life to remain in bodies whose brain’s were irreparably damaged, or in bodies so crippled that any normal physical existence was impossible.
The right to die—to give up the physical vehicle of the soul—whenever a person desired, was denied micro man. And it was a crime to commit suicide. A body, it seems, belonged to the ‘state’.
Each of us who chooses life in a physical body does so to experience specific learning opportunities. When we have grown our way through those lessons we are ready to die.
We may achieve this through evolation, that is, simply lying down and dying, or we may choose to die in some manner, which in itself offers one last opportunity for growth within that particular body. Either of these processes leaves us free to go on about growing in whatever dimension we choose, for we have learned what we could from this lifetime and are eager to embrace future opportunities for our evolution.
Suicide, on the other hand, is not an embracing of the future; it is a rejection of the present. If one’s opportunities for growth have been completed he can simply evolate without the use of a gun, knife, or any other artificial means of ending life. If one’s opportunities for growth have not been completed he cannot evolate. When he tries to evolate he will find that it just doesn’t work.
This is a very important distinction, Jon. The word evolate is made up of the words evolve and graduate. It is a natural evolutionary graduation from one level of growth to another. It is embracing the opportunities and the challenges of the future.
Suicide is using some artificial means to end your life before you have creatively handled the lessons it holds for you. It is not a graduation; it’s dropping out. It is an attempt to escape the challenges of the present. Interestingly, it never works, for our soul is the epitome of persistence and patience. If we drop out of one lifetime (one series of opportunities for our evolution) it will promptly present us with another, which holds exactly the same challenges/lessons!
Each of our lives has a specific beginning and a specific ending, as does our soul. Our universal Macro self, however, had no beginning and it will have no end. It is the beingness.
Physical existence—life—is just one of many classrooms for the evolution of our soul.
From a Macro perspective we can see that life and death are merely stages in a soul’s evolutionary path upon which life is eternal and death is non-existent.
