This topic provides a space for us to share, discuss, learn and expand a most certain and highly anticipated human experience -- croaking -- and the experience of us who are "left behind" -- grieving the loss" of a loved one, from the perspective of what ABRAHAM teaches us.

I read this poem at a memorial service. It beautifully describes my perspective of "death."

Death Is Nothing At All

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped into the next room.
I am I and you are you.
And the old life that we lived,
Whatever we were to each other,
That we are still.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes
We always enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.

Let my name be ever the household name that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort,
Without the ghost of a shadow in it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was.
There is an absolute unbroken continuity.
What is death but a negligible accident?
Why should I be out of mind
Because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you for an interval,
Somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.

All is well.

Originally written as part of a sermon by Canon Henry Scott-Holland of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.


Let's converse and learn, and see where this takes us.

Welcome Em to the forum - what an introduction this first post of yours is.  So beautifully said.  I received my weekly CD from A-H yesterday and Esther talks about her strong connection with her father after he transitioned and I recognized what she was talking about in your beautiful poem.

Will get back to post it later.

There's so much love for you here.  Welcome, welcome, welcome!

:beautiful:

Guest:  Hello Abraham, I am so happy to be here, this is like my dream come true.  Well I have my parents, and my in-laws and very closed friends that are preparing to '"croak" and I know that that's gonna be a great experience but I'm gonna miss them!

Abraham:  You're already planning to do that, yes? - LAUGHTER - "I've decided that now you're going that I will be less happy than I was - LAUGHTER - I decided to take this opportunity to just turn upstream at every opportunity - LAUGHTER - I'm no longer gonna allow myself to be the pure positive energy being that I've been - LAUGHTER - I'm gonna use you as my excuse to not feel as good as I once felt!"

Guest: No, I'm not gonna do that but I want...

Abraham:  You are - LAUGHTER - yes you are - LAUGHTER - if you are planning on missing them that's just exactly what you've just said!  "I'm gonna use you, the lack of you, as my focal point and it's gonna feel less good than when I focus upon who you really are."

Guest:  Well, it's gonna feel less good than when I don't have my friend to sit and talk with and be with and have her as my mentor!

Abraham:  Not enjoying this conversation? 

Guest:  Yeah! - LAUGHTER - I am enjoying this conversation - APPLAUD -

Abraham: So it's only your mind set, you've already created in your mind the separation between you and your friend because your friend is going to re-emerge into non-physical and you've decided you won't have easy access and we want to say when you get tuned in, tapped in, turned on, you'll have easier access to the purity of her than you do now.

Guest:  That's very exciting! - LAUGHTER and APPLAUD

Abraham:  Esther chatted with her father.  When Esther's father made his transition, Esther had many happy evenings of chatting with him and then one night she said "Abraham, is this you just pretending to be my father? - LAUGHTER - because he seems so joyful, he seems so at one?", he seemed to know so much that she had never heard him speak before - he had released all of his resistance so his personality changed because there was no worry present anymore, there was no judgement present anymore, it was just the pure essence of who he was - but once Esther got used to that - she likes her new father - LAUGHTER - she likes the new improved being that this life, in this body caused him to become, you see!  There's no separation between physical and non-physical, it's all vibration, depends on what frenquency you're on, and if you are beating the drum of "I miss you", you're on a different frequency,  if you're beating the drum of "I'm lonely and I'm physical and you are highly and you're dead!".  We put those silly words in your mouth but a lot of people feel that way.  "I'm still mortal and  therefore  I'm still less than, I'm  not the angel that you are!" and we say you don't have to croak to close that gap! your friend will, your mother will, your father will - when they die it will close the gap but you could close your gap without croaking and then you won't miss them.

Guest:  I can feel that, thank you

Then Abraham keeps sharing incredible manifestations/connection Esther had with her father - YOU MUST BUY THIS CD, it's so powerful, so uplifting, so unique!  I LOVE IT!

Dear EM,

Thank you for that wonderful poem. What a lovely gift is your first post.

Transitioning is something that can be hard to wrap our brains around. I have found that it is really easy to converse, or receive messages from those who have transitioned, but to whom I was not close. The pain that comes to me when I think of the MISSING that I feel keeps me from connection, where otherwise my openness to energies is clear and beautiful.

Just yesterday we were driving and passed an accident that looked pretty serious. I said out loud, "I wish everyone connected as much healing as they want to allow". And then I felt someone right with me and I could feel that they were listening to what I had said. They had just transitioned and were feeling a new lightness that was so lovely to them. It wasn't anyone I had known, but they were sharing the light feeling with me. Such a lovely gift. I told my spouse, "Someone just transitioned" and she nodded and smiled.

Thank you for your post, and welcome to one of the best places around!

Love,
Carol

Hi em ::wave I'm also new here.

That poem is so beautiful, it really hits home with me. I lost my dad in 2000, but I know he is still around and very near, so I just talk to him all the time and it feels very comforting. ::rainbow

Thanks for bringing it.

Love and hugs ::hearts::singer

My beautiful, sweet cat was run over and killed this morning. She wasn't with me long, only a few months. I've never seen a more beautiful cat or known one that had a better disposition.

I'm sad that she chose to leave but we let her be free and she made the choice.

I came here to find comfort and this was the right place.

I'm glad she found us and I was able to know her but I do miss her and that's the hard part.

I'm trying to go downstream!! It WILL get better.

cheers,

aurora

Dear Sweet Aurora,

How lucky your beautiful cat was to be able to live with you before she chose to go. She obviously wanted to experience the feeling of living with a family who loves nature, animals, and the joys that all that love could bring her. She went out happy, and I know you know that.

For your own grief I can only offer virtual hugs and know that I understand your love for animals. They are so precious and it is such a blessing when one chooses us as their playmate during their lifetime.

You gave her love and a good home. She must have felt complete and chose to leave on a good note.

Love and Hugs,
Carol

I loved that quote. Thank you. It explained why I feel NO SEPARATION from those I love who have croaked. :)

Love,
Christine

Aurora

I understand your sadness, and it's okay to grieve.  As Carol said, she had a good life with you, in nature, and she transitioned with love and gratitude for you.  Even if I posted this quote, it doesn't mean that I will never ever cry again the passing of one more of my cats. 

Do not put a happy sticker when that's not how you really feel.  Let those tears send a powerful rocket of desire for your cat to come visit you during a dream while you sleep.  I had one of those dreams when Loulou transitioned that showed me that our love connection never dies.  Ask and it is given!
