These words confuse me a little.
We call no longer living death. We call death the after life. But, what is death, really?
In my experience, death is the transition from the physical form in this 3-D world to a less dense existence in the “spiritual” realm. We are still “alive” though, just in a different space with a different awareness.
It’s all about awareness.
What I learned in my “afterlife” was we get to choose our awarenesses, everywhere, all the time. Whether in physical form or spiritual form, we choose. Based on our choices, we create and co-create our experiences.
Death is not the end, it is a transition. It is a transition of consciousness from one awareness to another. It’s a shift from here, to there. A movement from life to life.
This picture was taken in the Bahamas a few years ago. I loved the tangled beauty of the branches that seemed to reach out to the sky like fingers ready to grasp the unknown.
