“Death is not the opposite of life. Life has no opposite. The opposite of death is birth. Life is eternal.”
~ Eckhart Tolle, Stillness Speaks
I LOVE this quote. It’s crossed my mind often since first reading it.
And it’s come to mind most recently after losing our sweet lab, Ollie, especially because I had a lot of synchronicities that made me aware — at a deep level — of the same thing.
It started just a few days after his death.
I was in the back yard and as I looked up I saw 2 mourning doves walking around the bush from his grave. Now, I never see mourning doves back there, even rarely see them at all around here. And that they should come right from his grave while I was there … Well, let’s just say I noticed.
Shortly after that, I was walking over to visit his grave and out hopped a bunny from behind it. It came right over to me, within about 3′, and stopped right at the grave. Again, I took notice.
Even funnier, the next morning I got up and there was the bunny lying in the backyard, all stretched out, right where Ollie used to lay all stretched out!
This was odd enough but this happened several days in a row.
This was getting a little strange, even for me!
Over the next week or two, the quote just kept coming back to mind.
And it seemed that everywhere I went, there was Life.
There were lizards, snakes, birds (ravens, baby flycatchers that hatched and flew the coop, and another mourning dove that flew right in front of me), a big moth that sat right on the post near me on the front porch while I worked, and of course, bunnies galore — to name a few.
Life Goes On
All of this made me sooo aware that Life goes on.
And I don’t mean “life goes on” like your life situation has to continue.
I mean Life just goes on! There is no end to it.
And I did revel in the fact that Ollie was still around. I felt him, not only as his presence, but as Life itself!
I recently did a book review of Dying To Be Me by Anita Moorjani about her near-death experience (NDE). But did you know I had my own NDE? I did … Not as involved as Anita’s, but enough for me to get a taste of what happens when we die. And I can tell you, Life goes on! It’s amazing.
Life = The Field of Magic & Miracles
So you may wonder what this has to do with Emergence.
Well, experiencing the Life that you are — even your life force (which is a little bit of an abstraction of it but still a good stepping stone) — is a doorway to the state of consciousness you enter when you “do” Emergence.
It’s your conscious connection to a powerful field of magic and miracles.
In some ways, the state is impossible to speak of, but there are a lot of pointers that can help lead you to it.
This is one of them. (Note: For some instruction on experiencing your life force and using it to strengthen your immune system or even heal, see remedy #16 in Kiss Your Cold Goodbye Fast With These 20 Natural and Vibrational Remedies.)
And once you’re adept at entering the state … at being … and being life consciously, with awareness — the rest is a piece of cake. 😉
The truth is: you don’t have a life, you are life, the One Life, the one consciousness that pervades the entire universe and takes temporary form to experience itself as a stone or a blade of grass, as an animal, a person, a star or a galaxy.
Can you sense deep within that you already know that? Can you sense that you already are That?
