I love this poem, one of my best.
I am the face in the darkness that keeps you awake at night,
For I glean from your countenance a vision of fear.
But there is no malice in my heart;
I am fascinated by your need to sleep;
To induce yourself into the state you fear the most:
And then to observe you re-awaken, and
Re-emerge sentient and alive – to perform your highest mark of faith:
The miraculous resurrection.
Each day I observe your behavior,
Watching you clothe yourself with the vestments of ignorance and fear.
Watching you go about your daily affairs in a trance of forgetting.
And I am amused, as you would be too
If you could see yourself as I do.
Wondering how you manage to keep a straight face and
Be so serious.
‘Life is difficult’, I often hear you say,
Yet you have no difficulty in performing the two…

One afternoon I was hanging out with a friend, and she was sharing a story with me about a near death experience she had as a child, where she had drowned and was legally dead for 20 minutes. As she was sharing this I was able to enter her experience. For about 8 seconds I experienced through her memory, what’s it like to be in the God realm. To be immersed in unconditional love… that without contrary. After that experience I can say without a shadow of doubt, I am not afraid of death. In fact I look forward to it, because the contrast between here and there is SO incredibly Great… there is no ego, and that in itself is worth the blood, sweat and tears it takes to get there.
Thank you for sharing your story here. I think that in understanding death you understand life. You simply cannot view your existence in the same way anymore. Fear has no place where there is understanding and remembering. What I have learned thus far is that we are always at our spiritual centre, and that we never forget where we are or who we are. The intense focus that we place on the physical is often what clouds our ability to see clearly and indeed remember that we are already exactly where we need to be. There is no separation between this reality and the next, just our ability to perceive it. Blessings to you
Yes, I can connect to that, and thank you.
