From Grief to GraceFeb 12, 2022
Three days ago I physically lost my best friend. The fur and four-legged kind. For those that are animal lovers, you will know what this means. Yet, I have been fortunate to move straight through grief and into grace. How can this be?
You see, there are two-minds, the wrong mind of ego and the right mind of peace and love, that knows being is true not bodily-identification. And depending upon what mind you give your allegiance to will write the script that is written for you.
Those that know the ego-mind, believe in sin, separation, and sickness. They experience death for themselves and their loved ones. Grief is real, it cannot be denied. I have lived through this in the past. And being extremely sensitive and empathetic, boy was grief a punishment for me. It once would take me deep into such darkness I had a hard time finding my way out. I would cry often and the intensity would last a long time. I simply put it down to my ability to feel people's despair. Little did I know that all pain and suffering belongs to the ego-mind of sin, guilt, and fear. For it tells us that we are the body and when death comes that we have lost the love we once shared.
Yet, hidden deep within is the right mind of peace and love. It whispers that we are not the body, but rather the being of Perfect Love. It sings a song of trust and truth that love cannot be stolen, separated, or sick. That we cannot ever lose, for we are whole. And so, as my best friend of the past 5-years who loved nothing more than to wrap her long neck around mine and draw me into her beauty left my side, no longer did I feel grief. You see, I felt her joy as she rose from the body, free from her earthly lesson of cancer. And whilst it was not cancer that ultimately took her, I was happy for her. What a shift in perception!
Of course, I had brief moments throughout the last few days, when I found myself back in the ego-mind, which tells us what we lack, have lost, and are now loveless, but I simply allowed this darkness within to be cleaned up with Truforgiveness. Until all traces of the belief in separation between us had been undone and I was back in the right mind that lovingly reveals, 'There is no death, for what God creates as One cannot be sinful or separated." And this is where I now find Miss Dakoda. In the right mind hidden deep in the darkness of the subconscious that knows we are being and not body.
How did I make it to the right mind that offers the happy dream in time? I truly forgave every barrier that kept the right mind out of my awareness, until I no longer knew separation but had found the truth of sameness, Perfect Love.
And whilst I did not save the body of Miss Dakoda, I certainly changed my script in time. For I changed my mind from fear to love and by doing this I interpreted the events of form in a different light. No longer am I punished by the lessons, but I allow what comes to truly heal, as I continue to undo the belief in separation until I completely wake and no longer appear to be here myself.
This is the true meaning of grace, where the shadows of sin, guilt, and fear have been forgotten and the truth of peace, love and innocence for All has been returned to your mind. For you have made your home upon the rock of Perfect Love, which is the right mind that knows wholeness, not separateness.
To change your mind is not to consciously control thinking, but to find the right mind and the peaceful and loving thoughts you share with All. This is how you purify your thinking and change how you interpret the story of time.
There is no death when you know the right mind, for the right mind teaches we are being and not body. For example, I crossed paths with a lady this morning that knew Miss Dakoda and when I told her that she was no longer with us physically, she broke down. Tears were flying, she could hardly speak. The ego tells us that this is called compassion, but this is just the belief in separation speaking. I did my best to calm her down, to let her know that Miss Dakoda's lessons were complete and she was free to fly to whatever was next for her. How death was not the end, for she is being not body. In between her cries she told me how different we are, another tactic the ego likes to employ to maintain the belief in separation. I knew that I was seeing the ego in play, and so I started to truly forgive this as well. It is time to stop making the ego our home and to find the right mind that offers the happy dream in time, which is what I am moving through now, as it leads to One-mindedness, awakening.
As I write this now, I write with such love and gratitude for the blessing Miss Dakoda has had on my own life. Those long affection cuddles and the way she would look me in the eye, maintain this gaze and silently communicate to me how wonderful I was. She gave so much to me, never asking for anything. I would after whisper to her why did I not have human friends that wanted nothing from me, except to sit in the silences of no speak and to bask in the truth of love we share. A favorite pastime of mine.
Oh, I love you Miss Dakoda... thank you for allowing me to love you so purely.. and thank you for loving me... you have been an incredible gift! I will treasure you forever. And I cannot wait until there is no belief in separation and I am once again the same as you, Perfect Love.
Much love, peace, and Truforgivenes,
