There is no “other side”
“Death isn’t as serious as you think it is, honey.”—Billy Fingers
In E-Cubed, the follow-up to E-Squared, I talked a lot about Worldview 2.0, the quantum viewpoint of life. That everything’s connected, that all we see and experience is just a temporary modification of the one fundamental energy.
One of the most ridiculous, yet cherished beliefs in Worldview 1.0, the old viewpoint, is the belief in separation particularly when a loved one no longer animates a physical form.
This belief has been in my face the past week with Wayne’s passing and with the unexpected departure of a posse member’s 21-year-old son.
I am forever grateful that I “just happened” to be re-reading The Afterlife of Billy Fingers. “Just happened to be” is one of those code words for Divine Presence, kinda like “out of the blue.”
This book by Annie Kagan is such a great reminder that there really is no “other side” and that, if we choose, we can shift our attention so we’re still able to perceive and hear and communicate with a particular spark of Divine Light that vacated the physical body.
Annie’s brother, Billy, got hit by a car. She was devastated by his death until one day he started speaking to her. At first, she worried she was going crazy, was convinced she was playing some game with herself to assuage the grief. But, one after another, he kept giving her signs.
He passed on helpful messages for her friends. At first, they made no sense. Like why would Billy tell her to say, “drink green tea” to her friend, Tex.
Except that just that morning Tex’s chiropractor told her to give up coffee—it had made her body toxic.
And why would Billy tell her to say “Aint no sunshine without the sun” to the one person who thought she was absolutely nutso.
Except that this person, although he’d never told her, had lost his son years earlier and was definitely experiencing a “lack of sunshine” ever since.
Other times, Billy would send silly signs—like a clone of Mitzi, her childhood pet, a blond fox terrier or he’d say, “You’re going to see a star” and then, after suggesting she fix her hair like Lena Olin, she shows up at the beauty shop only to be seated next to the movie star, Lena Olin.
I love these kinds of stories and knowing, that no matter how it may appear to the naked eye, we are forever cosmically connected and deeply loved.
And that whatever my highest concept of good might be is only the starting point. Suffice it to say, the Divine Presence has a much grander, more unifying vantage point.
In two weeks, I’ll be speaking in Orlando at the Hay House I Can Do It conference.
Wayne, of course, was scheduled to speak Friday night. Instead, Reid Tracy, president of Hay House, will be doing a tribute to the 75 years, the starting point, of our great teacher and friend.
Would love to meet you there. My goal remains to hug every person on the planet.
