"Have you ever stopped to consider, Rose, that due to your eternal nature,
you, and everyone else, live forever?
Of course you have.
And therefore, have you realized that in the truest sense,
everyone beats cancer, aids, and starvation?"
~ The Universe
I subscribe to daily posts from tut.com; loving, brief messages that remind me of my divine nature. And I just loved this message!
I believe we are eternal, that we only (very) temporarily manifest in a physical form as we are now. It is beautiful and joyful to consider that, as eternal beings, we will be wonderfully free of every ailment, every sorrow for all eternity. I’ve carried sorrow in my heart the past couple of months and I found this message a good reminder to focus on the joy in each moment; to find the peace and calm in every focused breath. Although each loss and grief is tragic while we endure them, they are mercifully temporary. All suffering is temporary. Hallelujah for that!
You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body.
