Belief System – Death (Physical)

There will be a day when we will be done with our path and our physical body will come to and end.  We don’t know when or how, but because we have experienced a NDE (Near Death Experience) we do know what the other side is like.  We know that our soul will go to the other side and we wish to have our physical body cremated, unless we die in a fire, then it will automatically be cremated.  We also will make sure that our thoughts and last thought will be of God and a peaceful passing.  We have had some close calls throughout our life and each time something always saved us at the last minute.

We believe that it was the work of an earth angel a few times.  When we were 10 years old and stuck in quicksand with a friend, a man came out of nowhere to pull us out.  We were in a place that was desolate and even my friend said he did not see the guy, but all of a sudden, this man pulled us out at the last minute.  We barely had time to thank him and he said he had to go and left.

Then there was the time we were riding in my friends 1964 Corvette and I was sitting in the middle and one friend was driving and one friend was in the passenger seat.  Yes, a Corvette is only a two seat car, but since we were in our late teens and invincible, the middle arm rest seemed fine as a seat.  So we were going down I-94 East Bound at around 120 MPH in the left lane passing a bunch of semi-trucks when one of the trucks ahead decided to pull out into the left lane where we were.  The driver could only do one thing to avoid a collision and that was to turn left and go into the middle grassy separation.  We were throwing grass all over and slowly slowing down when we all saw one of those Police “Turn around” roads coming up soon.  Lucky the “road” had dirt on both sides almost like a ramp.  When we hit it we immediately launched to the right and landed in the left had lane of I-94 like nothing happened.  We got off at the next exit and pulled in to the first parking lot and came to a stop.  On the passenger side there is a horizontal bar over the glove box called a “suicide bar” and we had to pry the hands of the passenger off the bar.  Nobody wet their pants but it made a great story to tell our friends.

There was one time when we had just soloed when I was taking flying lessons and my instructor had me doing touch and goes for practice.  A touch and go is a landing and then without stopping, giving the plane full throttle and taking off again.  It happened to be at Gary Airport and on a right turn out it took me over Lake Michigan for my downwind that day.  Then the tower called me and had me execute a 360 degree turn because another airplane was coming into my air space without permission.  At the time we were about 2,000 feet over the lake and the request shook me up, but we started the 360 to the left and found we were having trouble maintaining my elevation.  We were going down so we gave the plane more gas, but it didn’t help.  We admit we started to panic when we were at about 1,000 feet above the water when all of a sudden we felt at peace, calm, and our mind cleared.  We immediately saw that we had left our flaps down and we knew that we needed to put them up, but we had to do it slowly to prevent a stall.  When we stated bringing the flaps up we started gaining altitude so we cut down on our speed and got the plane under control.  We turned on “base” and then “final” and landed.  I was shaking and got to the terminal as fast as possible.  Just as we stopped our instructor ran up and asked if we were ok?  He heard the tower ask us to do the 360 and knew that we had not covered this yet in out lessons so he ran out to the tower to view or progress.  He said that when he saw us go lower than the building between the tower and the lake we were having an issue and tried to call us on the radio but got static.  The he saw us rise and knew were ok.  I told him it scared the crap out of me and it cured me from keeping my flaps down to long on a touch and go.  We both laughed and we drank about four Pepsi’s down in five minutes.  To this day we love to fly.

We used to fly commercial often and have been on many “Emergency” Landings, but we always had confidence that the pilots we well trained and we knew they were well trained.  Usually the person sitting next to us got very nervous, but we would always assure them we were in good hands.  This always seemed to calm them down.  Every once is awhile before take off the person sitting next to us would ask us to hold there hand because this was the first time they where flying and they were afraid.  We always said yes, of course.  They were mostly ladies because the guys we noticed were chugging down beer during preflight.

Of course there are times we all come close to death but we don’t know it.   So we go on with our great lives and know that God is always watching out for us.  We look at death as the completion of our path in this life and we know that we can take what we learned with us to the next life (See post on reincarnation – May 20).  Recently we were shook up by the suicide of Anthony Bourdain, someone we followed for many years.  In our teaching we have learned that a person who commits suicide will experience the same exact situation as when they passed. Suicide is an issue in the US and there are many organizations that have suicide help lines.  The national Suicide Help line available 24/7 is 1-800-273-8255.  Please call, you are NOT alone and we care about you.

We have nothing else to report at this time and we thank all of the folks following our posts.  We hope to make a better life for all and we certainly willing to share with everyone.  Just know that you are not alone and that we all care for you always and in all ways.

Namaste
