In the late 1990s our INIT group received word from our spirit team, through a text file planted directly on a computer in Luxembourg, that a famous man in the entertainment business (whose name we decided not to make public) was stuck in a confused state between the Earth and the afterlife. (See the story in Contact! #96/02, page 14.) Before his death some 30 years earlier, he had decided to have his body frozen cryonically in hopes he could be restored to life at a future time when technology could make that possible.
What we learned from the ITC contact is that cryonics interrupts our spiritual journey as we leave the Earth. Normally when our physical self dies and our spiritual self moves on to paradise, it’s a smooth process that’s wonderful almost to the point of being overwhelming, but when our physical body is not allowed to completely die and disintegrate, our spiritual self becomes confused. There’s something inside tugging at us to come home to paradise, and there’s something else inside saying we can’t go yet; our time on Earth is not yet complete because our physical body is still there.
People in that position tend to get stuck between worlds for awhile. That famous man, whose work has made millions of people around the world laugh and cry in delight, became stuck in that confused state, between heaven and earth, for about three decades of Earth time. I don’t know what’s become of him since the ITC report.
My own fear of death
I was an agnostic until cancer nearly killed me in 1998, and then I set out on a spiritual search. I was suddenly driven to find out what really happens to us after we die. Until then, I was like that entertainment mogul. The normal ups and downs of my day-to-day life were driven by an underlying current of tension, frustration, and desperation. Fear of death does that to people. (See the report in Contact! #96/03, page 5.)
Fear of death manifests in many strange ways in our world…
… from movies about the “living dead”…
People, we need to relax about death. Enjoy life to its fullest, do what we can to achieve our life purpose… and then relax. Living on Earth with knowledge of our spiritual destiny brings contentment and inner peace. It lets us experience terrestrial dramas with the reassuring promise of paradise. It stirs compassion and empathy in our dealings with others while sweeping away envy and mistrust.
In short, afterlife understanding removes the fear of death and lets us tread more lightly on the planet.
If you’re like I used to be–clinging desperately to this illusory existence on this troubled planet with its many little dramas… get a life!… that is, invest in the knowledge of the true, timeless living that unfolds for us all after we’ve tried to complete our lifetime mission here on Earth, and it’s time to move on to paradise.
