Life is more, much more than meets the eye, and so is death. On the day we are born, the day of our physical death is already written in time.
Prior to our incarnation we will have had many meetings with our spiritual family planning out the potentials for our next incarnation. Some souls have made agreements to live upon and leave the planet in such a way as to cause a leavening of human consciousness.
Who has made a difference on this planet? Jesus, Gandhi, and with the showing of the recent movie, does Abraham Lincoln come to mind?
What about those who lost their lives on September 11th? In the midst of our narcissism, our materialism and our separatism, we were delivered into an awakening of what we cherish most– life and love. And life was a little kinder, more gentle, closer to God for a while, wasn’t it? The lives of those lost made a difference.
Last Friday, December 14, 2012, we were brought to our knees in shock and grief by the horrible loss of lives of grade school children and their stewards in Newton, CT. On the other side of the world the Chinese were experiencing tragedy as 22 children and one adult were brutally slashed in an elementary school.
“Why?” we ask, the world around. “Why, why, why?” we cry out in grief and anger as senseless acts of violence are committed against the most innocent.
On this side of the veil, these souls were innocent children. On the other side of the veil, they are spiritual warriors, heroes who dared to be born on to a planet that has gone just about as far away from God as it can go. Each soul knew the potential for the way his/her life could end before being born. They knew the potential for good that could come out of their sacrifice AND the sacrifice that would be made by all those who would love them and lose them.
It is not God who makes bad things happen. God allows us free will and as a result of ignorance and outright abuse of this gift, we experience pain and suffering at the wrong use of will.
Why did these children have to die?
They died to show us The Way, the way of Light and Love.
They stand in excellent company.
