Illusion of Death

    1. Yes, Amy, I really did work this flower. I actually had the option to “winterize” it and so the center became a different color and the white came out a softer hue. That is when I knew it was perfect for the words it wanted to be with. Thank you SO much for your kind words. (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. Yes, David, there is only Life. I experienced a NDE and in so doing, discovered dying is THE most beautiful experience we will ever have while in human form. Yet, it is the fighting of death within the dying process and the fear of death within the dying process, that makes something so beautiful into a nightmare. Birth is painful. Dying is not. It warms my Heart greatly to know others have the understand of “death”. Deception is the ruler of this world, unfortunately. Hopefully the Truth found on Petals will be heard. (((HUGS))) Amy

      1. It’s strange too because sometimes, at the most random times, a massive feeling of loss will come over you. I missed my dad more this Christmas than I did the Christmas right after his death. Something brought me an extra pang this year. I suppose it’s a mark of his greatness in my life. At the time of his death I wrote a goodbye to him on my blog, so when I miss him I just go there, re read and feel him wash over me. Happy today Amy, for your father lived and you were the lucky one he belonged to. 🙂

      2. You’ve got the tears going, Cao. I really am sorry about your pain this past Christmas. It’s true .. Life continues as we do, and then from out of nowhere we can get hit by the overwhelming emotions in missing someone we Love. I feel so fortunate in having known my Dad, even though for the last years of his life, it was via telephone. My Life these past few years have been extremely challenging, so to have that option to speak to my Dad if only for a while, was a lot better then nothing. There are some in my family who refused to forgive my Dad and for them, I really feel bad for because they lost something so precious, that is now not possible to have. I’m coming to terms with some very powerful emotions right now, and I will not stop until I make it all the way to Peace. Many deep thoughts are arising. I’m glad, so glad for you, that you too knew your Dad. That is a Blessing that will never be taken from either one of us. (((HUGS))) Amy

  1. Your statement is so true, Amy, but not something we tend to think about on a ‘human’ level, yet our flora counterparts prove it true with each passing season and with each new bloom.

    1. I agree with you, Marcy, that we ordinarily do not think about something like this as we race through Life. My Dad’s passing has brought to Mind a lot of things I do not usually think about. I miss him so much that I must focus on these “higher thoughts” in order to come to acceptance of his passing. Just so much I “see” that was not right that occurred at the end of his life, yet in order for me to find Peace, I have to let all this go. The outcome outweighs any wrongs. My Dad is HOME. I have another post with one of my sayings at the end that expands on this idea found in this post. I hope you get to see it because you will see ME as the Pillsbury Dough Boy and more …. (smile) Love, Amy

      1. When my mother died, I was at her bedside, and her passing was the most peaceful experience I have ever witnessed. It totally changed my outlook on death. It took me years to overcome my father’s passing, but with Mom … she simply transcended from this world and ‘floated’ into the next. Maybe it was easier for me to accept her passing because I was there to tell her that I loved her, and honored her, and was proud to be her daughter, thus found easy closure. Funny, but here it is sixteen years later, and I still feel my parents with me everyday. Do they really die? Close your eyes, and feel him, Amy. Your father’s body may have passed, but his spirit will always remain with you if you allow it in.

      2. Marcy, I too feel my Dad. No there truly is no death. Really. But what I witnessed through SKYPE and what some of my family were telling me, AND what I “knew” in my Heart, was terrifying to see. I saw my Dad tortured, for he never forgave himself for what occurred when his children were young. It is haunting me, Marcy, that and the knowledge that medicine totally mistreated him as well as some of my family being under the “spell” of delusion. I couldn’t get to him, my friend, due to the very real life and death responsibilities I have in my own Life. I worked around the clock to train my husband to take over for me so I could leave, but my Dad left before I could get there. I did make it for the service. I KNOW dying is ecstatic, I KNOW. I am also grappling with powerful emotions as to how “religion” twisted my Dad’s mind … no make that what MAN did to make my Dad believe as he did. I weep, my friend, for I “see” Truth, and how this entire ordeal so much was wrong. I will come to Peace with myself regarding not being there. IF I had been, my Dad would not have suffered as he did. I know how to stand up to medicine and I know what is right and what is wrong. (I am an RN) I was helpless 750 miles away as I knew tragedy was being played out. In his final moments when he finally was given the proper medication to let go, he left peacefully. I have a powerful post coming regarding delusion. It was created from this pain I am feeling right now. I send you my Love and I am so happy for YOU that you witnessed what dying is supposed to be.

      3. Amy, I wish I could comfort you in some way, other than through mere words, especially with your loss being so recent. Time does help ease the pain some, but I have found clinging to the ‘happy’ times shared is the best remedy for excepting our loved one’s passing. My prayers are with you as you sort your emotions. Hugs are sent back to you.

      4. I’m getting there, Marcy. I spoke to one of my brothers this evening, and I know I have the power to focus on what happened, or to focus like you say, on the good memories. This is my philosophy in Life in general … to focus on good and beautiful, not the doom and gloom. Only by letting go, will I again find Peace. I know this. And I also promise you I am in the fast lane when it comes to bringing mattes to rest. Bless you for listening. You’ve done more for me then you know. I am so touched. Love, Amy

    1. Thank you, Maria. I thought so too. It was extremely tiny, so much so I almost missed it because of all the purple going on. All in this image are extremely tiny and it took a lot of focus and concentration to get this shot clear. I remember really holding my breath to steady my hands. (smile) (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. There is so much fear put upon the concept of death. OK, admittedly, who doesn’t have a touch of fear due to the “unknown” quality it holds? Yet, when I had my NDE I found out that dying is “familiar” and THE most beautiful experience we will have in human form. It is the struggle and the pain before dying that all of us do not want. I question that too. Does it have to be that way? Does growing old always mean we have to suffer before we die? What I saw my Dad go through brings nightmares to me, yet, in stepping back, he brought a lot of what he suffered upon himself. Not all. I’ve learned so much from his passing, Marissa, that it is going to take quite a while for me to sort it all out. I really do know dying is NOT painful and it is ecstatic. (((HUGS))) Amy

      1. If I did not have my NDE I would fear death. I do not. For years I wanted to be on the Other Side NOT here. Now that I have really walked into why I was born, I am finally happy to be on this side of the veil. (((HUGS))) Amy

  2. Believe it or not, Cosmos flower is my favorite. There is a point of view that the end does not exist The END is just the BEGINNING of something NEW. So LIFE never ends it just transfers from one form to another. This is why we have to LIVE and LOVE every single moment!

    1. Wonderful “enlightened” comment, Alexander! Beautiful that you understand that the emphasis of fear regarding death is all an illusion, a “lie”, that man has propagated. I’ve been doing a lot of deep thinking since my Dad passed and this is one of the thoughts that came bubbling to the surface. Yes, I have known this Truth for a long time, yet I didn’t think about it much until lately. Bless you for your wonderful expansion of my thought here. I have another post coming with another saying that continues in this vein of thought. I think you will enjoy that one. It is a duet with my husband. (smile) AND you will see me in my winter clothes that I speak of. LOL Love, Amy

      1. Thank you, Amy, for accepting my opinion and vision of LIFE. I’ve lost my parents 40 years ago. Since then a lot of dearest people passed away. In time I realized all of them my Angeles, my connection to God.
        They are part of God.

      2. Yes, Alexander, all of us are a part of God. Yet how many people are open to this, will agree? You and I know this as well as all of Creation is a part of God. Nothing is outside of God. No-thing. It brings such relief to my Heart to know that others really understand this concept of “God”. Bless you, my friend. Love, Amy
