A Letter To My Reader: Your Guilt

Dear Reader,

As you walk your path in life, know that as long as you walk in guilt you are trapped in time.  Christ was guiltless, and the guilty hung him on the cross.  Eternity is the wholeness of God's love.
Your guilt does not serve you on your journey.  It is useless to God.  The chains of time are bound by guilt.  Slip back into eternity where you are not judged.  Don't let the carpet of time roll up on you as your days come to past.  Learn to judge yourself through God's loving eyes.  Others will judge your heart, but they are only fit to judge in time with the ego.
In time, confusion and distortion of the truth exist.  As you awaken, the truth will set you free.  You must be courageous enough to uphold it.

God Bless, 
Madison Michelle

Practice Death

There is no place on earth where death cannot find us- even if we constantly twist our heads about in all directions as in a dubious and suspect land... If there were any way of sheltering from death's blows- I am not the man to recoil from it... But it is madness to think that you can succeed...

Men come and they go and they trot and they dance, and never a word about death.  All well and good.  Yet when death does come- to them, their wives, their children, their friends- catching them unawares and unprepared, then what storms of passion overwhelm them, what cries, what fury, what despair!...

To begin depriving death of its greatest advantage over us, let us adopt a way clean contrary to that common one; let us deprive death of its strangeness, let us frequent it, let us get used to it; let us have nothing more often in mind than death... We do not know where death awaits us: so let us wait for it everywhere.  To practice death is to practice freedom.  A man who has learned how to die has unlearned how to be a slave.

Everlasting Death

Death signifies the separation of the soul of man from God; whereas immortality signifies union with God.  Corporeal death, that is the separation of soul and body, is conceived first as a consequence of man's separation from God.  It is the symbol of a union with God that has been lost, whereas immortality of the body is a testimony and proof of interior intimacy with God.

God alone is the being, the unique and genuine reality.  Consequently union with God is the only guarantee of a complete personal being.  Separation from God is equivalent to loss of claim to one's own existence.  God is life: privation of life is death.  Hence the sinner separated from God is in reality dead, though he continues to exist as far as the body is concerned.  The unending existence in the state of damnation of his soul is rightly described not as everlasting life, but everlasting death.

My Letter To Death- No.2

Dear Death,

Because of you Death, I am more alive.  You took me into your bosom and held me like a child.  You gave me rest, and your ardent presence beguiled all of my senses.  I lost my senses because of you!  You are a thief!  You have removed the veil of ignorance.  You stole my heart.  
Then you withdrew your breath and I woke up begging for you to come back.  Please take me with you! I beg you!
Oh Death, you are a flirtatious lover, teasing me with your seductive whispers.  How I marvel at your grace.  You greet me at the appointed hour, appointed by God.  How I rush to meet you!  
You promise release from this body.  Why do so many fear you when all you hold is beauty?  If the stars never twinkled in the night sky, or the moon cast her glow, we would vainly curse the darkness.
Death, when my hour does finally arrive, we will embrace like old friends.  We will shed tears of joy over my homecoming.  And we will laugh together at how ridiculous I overly dramatized my life.  For now Death, I will embrace my life.

Fondly Yours,

Madison Michelle

Edgar Cayce, What Happens After Death

The death of the physical is birth in the spiritual.  Many souls do not awaken after their physical death.  They have ill prepared themselves for the transition.  Like a child born into the physical, a soul is like a child born into the spiritual.  Gradually it awakens to its surroundings.  The desires of the entity are a portion of its consciousness.  It is unable to move on from the astral plane and goes about its business as if it were still physically alive.  What it craves and desires it goes in search for and often attaches itself to a living being with the same addictions to fulfill its cravings.
