Extract of the Month:
The Tapestry of Life by Marjorie Aarons through the mediumship of
“You have the consciousness of leaving
the physical body – this is a wonderful happening – if one passes on
naturally. You simply find yourself
for a moment very well, very exhilarated. But your degree of spiritual
understanding determines whether you are immediately conscious of where you are.
Average people are not really conscious
at once of having awakened in the spirit world. They are usually met or even
carried – according to the strength of the spirit, not the body, -- to the
home of rest arranged for them, and suitable to their spiritual understanding.
They may be there a few hours, a day or a week – again according to their
spiritual growth and understanding – so that there is no shock to the soul.
I think, for instance, that when you
eventually arrive here, you will immediately be aware of the fact that your
mother, father and your guides are at your side.
There will be a hilarious meeting.
By that time, your soul, newly arrived
and newly reborn, will be a little tired. You will be carried away. When I say
‘carried’, you will will probably just take a second to get where you are
going with the kind of transportation at your disposal, and remain there for a
while surrounded by6 great beauty.
Some people will find themselves in very
drab circumstances. They will be
aware of birds singing even in the dullness of the difficult sections of life.
There is beauty around, but often they haven’t the eyes to see it.
It is all a question of spiritual wealth and understanding.
You may be very poor, yet when you come to our world, lavishly rich in
spiritual wealth and strength. Material
well-being has nothing to do with your spiritual growth.
It is being at one with the Maker, not piously, but knowing in your soul that ‘My Father and I are one’.
It’s the at-one-ment that brings the power immediately after death.”
