of Forgetfulness is a phrase used to describe our inability to remember Home and our past lives, just to name a couple
of things. Think of this veil as a barrier between the physical world and Home. It is there for
our Soul's growth. Just like we wouldn't give a 5th grader 12th grade homework, we won't receive
a lifting of the veil if we are not prepared to comprehend what we see/hear and accept the responsibility of
having the Knowledge of Truth.
If you know anyone who's
had a near-death experience, ask them if Home is anything like earth? I guarantee the answer will be 'no'! The Spiritual Realms
are all about Love. We are not in human form there so we don't behave like humans. We have no ego to contend with, no
survival instincts, negative emotions or thoughts. Imagine YOUR life now without those behaviors? That's what
it's like to be Enlightened!
I'm frequently asked,
"do you miss your old life?" the answer is "NO!" I don't miss my negative behaviors, my view of the world as a mean
and hateful place, contending with others to reach the top, competing in a rat-race society or doing things that
only serve me and the people I know. Enlightenment brings purpose and meaning to our life that cannot be matched by
Please don't misunderstand
a fact: we need our survival instincts here! That's what keeps us in the physical world, but we are also equipped with an
ego which can create a sense of selfishness that's hard to tame. We must master this before the veil
can be lifted. Ego and Enlightenment cannot co-exist. We cannot see through the veil if we believe Enlightenment is a
competition or some kind of social ladder. What's beyond the veil is Love. Literally everything is Love! So
if we are too attached to the physical world we cannot conceptualize that Love is the only reality!
When the veil is lifted
and we see Home the world we live in loses its importance. There is nothing we wouldn't give up, change, or walk
away from to follow the Divine Guidance we hear. Our body, mind, heart and Soul swim in Divine Love and we feel the 'temporary-ness'
of our existence on earth - knowing we are here to learn with our Brothers and Sisters then go Home, back to where we
came from, to prepare for another life in a future time.
