ONENESS: Death vs. Transition
Updated: Aug 23
the action or fact of dying or being killed; the end of the life of a person or organism.
the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.
What a perfect way to start off the new year than with a blog about death! Well, maybe not so but the timing of it happens to work for me. For you see, the month of January was when we celebrated my Mother’s birthday, and unfortunately her transition as well. I for one, don’t use the word ‘death’, because my Mom never died. The loving spirit that she was and most definitely still is was never born, so it can never die. Because we are eternal spirits, or energies if you may.
Those of you who have been following along with these blogs, my podcast as ‘That Oneness Guy’, my music or my book “I Am God” (and so are you my friend) A Common Man’s Guide to Oneness, know this. We know that Oneness represents the total inclusion of all that is. We know this because we understand that WE ARE NOT these bodies that we inhabit on this very brief journey in the physical realm. My dear friend Caroline Chang (Awake 2 Oneness Radio) likes to say that the body is our ‘spacesuit’! How perfect and true is that! Just like an astronaut in space needs his spacesuit to survive in space, we need our bodies to survive on this planet. There’s really no difference. But make no mistake about it, it is not what we are. Like a spacesuit, it is a shell, that we can maneuver and reside in while we are here.
But for our friends who still hang on to the notion that our bodies represent who and what we are, they use the word ‘death’ when someone passes or ‘transitions’. I posted the definitions above so you can really absorb what each word means. As a spiritual being, what statement resonates with you more?
‘The end of the life of a person or organism.’
‘The process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another.’
I would surely hope that this is a layup of a question for you. The keywords to focus on are ‘end’ and ‘changing’. Would you rather life end or change? And it’s not as if you have a choice here. You, me, all of us are never going to ‘end’. At some point in time (a time that we all agreed upon before we came into this existence), we will ‘change’ or TRANSITION back to our natural state. That of pure essence and bliss. We will return to the state of energy that vibrates at the highest level, which is Love and Oneness.
AND HERE’S THE KICKER!!!
And I dedicate a whole chapter in my book to this regarding the many ‘ironies’ of life. This totally natural and organic transition that we will all have one day, IS THE THING WE FEAR MOST IN LIFE! I mean, duh! How can our most natural progression be the one thing we fear the most? Because since our childhood, and with the help of many religions, we are taught that we are separate from God. And there are many reasons for those teachings but that’s another chapter in my book and the topic for another blog. So, we grow up believing that we are separate from God. We believe that we are in fact these bodies. And when these bodies expire, we will die! How fucking morbid and sad, and so far from our inherent truth.
And here’s something else that adds to the irony of fearing our transition. We know that we are spirit and that our transition will take us directly back to that state of being. So, what might we do in this physical realm that kind of resembles returning to a spiritual state? Come on, let me hear you say it. YES!
WE GO TO SLEEP EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!!
Even the most non-Oneness-believers out there will attest to a portion of each and every day where we allow our bodies to fall into a dream-like (aka spirit) state! What exactly happens during that time? We get a first-hand glimpse of the spirits that we really are! We get the chance to revisit our spiritual side each and every night! So why in God’s name would we ever be afraid to transition? IT’S THE SAME THING! WE DO IT EVERY SINGLE NIGHT!
Well, I’ll leave it at that for now. If you do have my book, go back and revisit the chapters I mentioned for more specific details. But regarding the title of this blog, I truly hope that you understand the difference between ‘death’ and ‘transition’. We will never die. We will all just naturally transition back to where we came from. It’ll be as easy and natural as going to sleep.
