Before continuing on, I should like to say that I am delighted you are as interested as I am about this subject and are willing to share this journey with me and others, who, like you, are also curious. As we travel along, I will ask many questions; any and all of which you are free to comment on (and I hope you will) or even take that particular question and write your own post or poem with your thoughts and ideas about it.  If you do, I would love if you might link back to the original post so we are all able to stay connected, but I feel this is a wonderful way to expand the conversation.  I am looking forward to our discussions and hope you will continue to find Those We Do Not Speak Of compelling.

Now, let’s take a moment to talk about What is The Essence….

When we establish what it is we are Able to Believe, we are free to move forward to explore the realm of Those We Do Not Speak Of more extensively.  Assuming we are Able to Believe that something happens after we pass through death; that another plane of existence does exist, it is equally as important to determine what it is that passes over into that new Life. Is it a Ghost? A Spirit? Our immortal Soul? Our Katra?  As before, I do not Believe it matters what name we choose to call that which passes over, although I will tend to use Essence because I Believe It embodies all we are, hope for, and dream of; but what matters is:  are we Able to Believe it leaves our physical body and moves onward, journeying to another place; perhaps another time?  Does our Essence find that place we call by other, less important names:  Elysium, Heaven, Nirvana; a place where the limitations of our physical manifestation are stripped away; where we are freed from those confines and are able to exist entirely as energy?  (If the Essence is unable to pass into that new realm, or chooses not to, will be explored in a future post.)

What type of Energy we ultimately become we do not need to debate.  The specifics will only bog us down and create boundaries and, once we cross over into that new realm, I Believe boundaries are eliminated.  It should be sufficient to say that we become a form of Energy that is as close to perfect as possible.  In that place of Perfection, we are finally able to Be everything we now are not; all we presently long to be, strife for, and hope to achieve. How and Why are more interesting questions.  Is it because all those things for which we strive are driven from an internal desire to Be (to coin the phrase) All we Can Be.  Is it our Essence that Inspires us to strive for Perfection because It is perfect?  Does the Essence of who we are act as our guide, quietly whispering truth, whether or not we choose to listen?  And if it does, is it this inner voice; this inner understanding of everything we cannot presently comprehend in our present state of limitation, which compels us to Ask those questions to which there are no “rational” answers?

We, then, are beings of Energy. The physical existence is fleeting, yet who and what we are remains and, when we shuffle off this mortal coil, our Essence returns to that eternal realm, but do we remain there, abiding in endless joy and light or do we merely rest and renew; then return to this plane of existence once again?  This cycle has names, of course, because we, in our limited state of being, need to name things in order to define them.  Reincarnation. Rebirth. Bhava, but as we already understand, the name is not important or even If it actually occurs; what we shall consider is:  if our perfected Essence is, indeed, Immortal, does it remain in that place Beyond or is it able to return to this plane?  If it is Able, what are the manifestations it is Able to take?  Do we return to this life again in the physical form or are we able to cross the divide and return to the physical world as Perfected Energy?

My mind cannot comprehend what Perfected Energy might be, but I am Able to Believe it exists.  However, as I am incapable of understanding what Perfected Energy is or how my limited five senses might perceive it, how will I know when I experience it? How will my mind comprehend something I cannot conceive?  Will my eyes witness something inexplicable?  A light anomaly or a wisp of smoke where none should be?  Can my ears hear a sound in an otherwise silent room or, perhaps, a voice where no speaker is visibly present?  Am I able to feel the touch of Perfected Energy if it chooses to reach out to me or smell a familiar scent I had forgotten in its absence?  In a state of Perfection, how does the Essence of what made us who we are Communicate with we who are imperfect?

If we look beyond our fears; if we open our minds to the Possibility of something reaching out from Beyond, then perhaps we may begin to Experience those mysteries, which I Believe are all around us.  Perhaps, if we step past our limitations by choosing to Believe, we also step closer, if only infinitesimally, to Perfection, which, in turn, opens our perception and our understanding to those things we cannot comprehend when we are closed.  Once we take that small step forward by defining what we are Able to Believe and Able to Perceive; are we, then, Able to Experience? If we are, what shall we Experience?

Communication with Those We Do Not Speak Of, which we shall explore further next time.

  1. Wow, a lot to think on, Morgan. I will dive in and pray my words offer only love and hope and not offense.

    Let me try to succinctly speak of three of my beliefs here in this first post. First, because I follow Jesus, I believe with certainty his Spirit lives within me. It is our connection to each other; it is also my connection to our Father; it is how we communicate heart to heart; it is how he guides me day to day.

    Second, I believe there are a great many others around us, not living as we live, watching us, loving us, encouraging us to live our lives through love instead of fear. These others have done so, and desire us to know it is the way to live through faith.

    Third, I believe when we die, our spirits will be raised to join those great many others, and that one day heaven will come to earth. On a day He chooses, my God will remove all sickness, evil, hardship and mourning, and all who choose to do so will live in His kingdom. Yet, for those who choose not to, the gates of heaven will forever be open for those who wish to change their mind and enter heaven in the future.

    1. Susan I am so Thankful you have shared what you Believe today. That is part of what this series is about and I should certainly hope that all who stop by will understand that, whether or not they Believe the same as you, all Beliefs are welcome to be shared here. I too Believe these things, yet, there are so many unknowns, so much proof of Other things happening, which have prompted this series. I hope you will continue to find it interesting and continue to share your thoughts as we go along 😉

  2. First of all, after 89 year on this planet, I know that I know nothing and will not discount any spiritual belief that is presented by anyone else. It is all a mystery. From two of my experiences with dear friends who passed on to the next dimension, I believe in the essence or spirit that welcomes us. If anyone is interested, I can expand on my thoughts.

  3. My best friend was dying, and his wife and I stood on either side of his hospital bed when he took his last breath and the death rattle echoed in the room. An instant after that, I felt as if a presence walked into the room, bringing a tremendous aura of absolute peace and harmony and happiness. A silent voice said, “Don’t you know this is how it really is?” The beautiful, golden moment held and then gradually faded. His wife looked over at me and asked, “Do you feel it?” I nodded. The next day we talked about it and agreed in having the same, exact experience.
    Many years later, another dear, close friend died. Three days after her burial, i was sitting in my living room reading. Suddenly, I felt that same presence surrounding me,and I could hear her say to me, “Darling, you’re going to love it here.” Gradually, as before, the presence slowly faded away.
    I can’t explain it. I just accept it.

    1. That is an amazingly Beautiful experience Patricia. Call it an Angel, a Messenger, or the Spirit of one already on the other side; it definitely sounds to me like you had a visitation. That Peace that passes understanding is not easily forgotten, but it is also a reassurance. Thank You ever so much for sharing this 🙂

  4. Spirits are absolutely around us. In my case, my grandmother (maternal) visits on and around her birthday. My dad & my father-in-law, around theirs. There are always signs. People think they can easily explain them away, however, those of us with a deeper understanding know better 😊

      1. My cat did the same thing when my mother was passing. My sister and I took turns sitting with her and my cat sat with us and more than once or even twice he would suddenly look at the doorway, moving his head side to side trying to focus on “something” we could not see. I knew. I smiled and knew my mom was not alone.

  5. The great mystery of life and the greater mystery of what lies beyond… I do think those who loved us continue to love us. We continue to love them. I think we all find comfort knowing we might still feel loved. I like picturing the soul as pure energy, finding a home in the universe. Patricia’s story is very comforting. She isn’t the first to perceive events like those. I’ve heard many stories like that. Wonderful topic.

  6. Catching up here…For myself, I do happen to believe what the Bible has to say about the afterlife and salvation. That being said, it doesn’t say in the Bible you can’t use your imagination, ask questions or be informed about other beliefs. Every culture will have their take on creation, God, salvation and the afterlife. I find Greek and Roman mythology with their take on their gods, heroes and afterlife very interesting. I like Norse mythology too. Those stories are fasinating. You do raise some interesting questions about our essense and what form it takes after our physical life has ended. 🙂

    1. I beleive what the Bible says as well, but having said that, there are still so many questions; so many situations where the improbably has come to life, so to speak. Thus my interest and this particular series. I am glad you enjoyed this post and hope you will continue to share your thoughts throughout the series 🙂
