One of the questions I received this last week from a reader was…
“Dear Stars, will I see the people I lost again?”
I feel your deep longing for the people you lost.
I know you need some rest or at least reassurance that somehow, somewhere there is this possibility of being with them again.
I am choosing the word being, instead of seeing, or meeting them again because it’s the being with them that you miss.
The feelings you had when you sat by their side, when you kissed them or danced with them.
This longing is heavy and so overbearing that it stops you from living life again. But today, I want you to imagine that you will experience being with the people you lost once again.
How do I know this?
Here is how.
Consciousness is the last frontier and first frontier.
It is quite possible that we might not have all the answers to the questions, because we are meant to experience the truth and not be told the truth.
Why do we need to wait for a scientist, or a priest or a historian to give us the answers?
The journey to the truth might not be a collective journey at first but an individual one. When many arrive to the truth, the rest will follow.
Imagine this for me. There are these particles called electrons and protons, which only occur when someone observes them.
Which means that if we don’t see them, they are not there.
This leads us into one direction, that this physical world you see around you, the chairs, the floor, the house you are living in, the trees and everything you see may be created from consciousness.
The seeing of them gives birth to them.
Who is seeing? Your consciousness.
What is consciousness? It is that knowing behind your eyes.
So, if that knowing behind your eyes has created all of this and it does not require this physical engine that pumps blood every day, then it’s an independent experience outside of us.
And it can find its way to another living body, universe and experience when this body is no longer able.
There is also a lot of human truth around the fact that we can’t prove that consciousness survives.
There is actually a lot of strong evidence to prove that it doesn’t.
We have not evolved enough to have the evidence for this yet.
So, this cycle of finding the proof begins and there is no end in sight.
And there won’t be for a really long time. Maybe never.
But here’s what I want you to focus on.
We are not meant to be told from a governing body whether our consciousness survives. We are meant to find the truth through experience.
Through the familiar feeling of having been here before.
Of having this feeling of knowing someone who you just met for the first time. Where do you think this feeling comes from?
And why don’t we trust it?
Why don’t we trust our own journey and wait to be told how to feel through someone else’s?
The next time you meet someone for the first time and you have that familiar feeling, grab their hand and hold their gaze for a little longer.
Ask them, have we met before?
You are going to be surprised with the answers.
And after a while you won’t be surprised anymore.
If only millions of people did just that. Wow.
When you lose someone it hurts so much because you have lost them before in many lifetimes prior to this one.
And the good news is that it’s very likely that you will be with them again, love them and lose them again.
The timeless gift of our consciousness is to be with the people we love many times, in many embraces around many suns and in many lifetimes.
Loss is part of love, and love is part of loss.
Consciousness brings these together so it feels like it was our first time and our last time all at once.
Consciousness is the feeling of knowing everything and knowing nothing.
The seeing of the universe and the blindness of the whole.
Dear Anonymous, you have asked this question in many lifetimes before, and you will ask it again until the knowing inside of you becomes so strong that you won’t have to ask anymore. You will just know. That is when science, physics and even spirituality won’t have to work so hard to prove it.
The quiet knowing will have done its job.
