What Will YOU Say About You When You’re Gone?

Hot:

Whatever gets said about you in your eulogy is beyond your control-unless of course, you pay a very trusted, very healthy friend in advance to read from a script you write today.

But isn’t something far more important than what others say about you at your funeral?

After all–unless your spirit hovers around for the grand ceremony–you won’t hear a word of it. Whatever good your friendly eulogist reveals–and whatever ill he or she conceals–wont make a bit of difference to your future.

No matter what shocking secrets get told, those who love you are unlikely to love you any less–unless some really tawdry shocking scandal gets ripped from your closet and flung into your open casket.

Nor will florid gushing words of praise carry much weight with those who have scorned you all your life. (Though they might reserve final judgment until the reading of your will.)

No, in fact, the only worthwhile words to consider are:

What will YOU say about you when you’re gone?

I ask this tough question because really, yours is the only voice that counts.

But do you think God does the talking during your past life exam, at your final judgment? Do you think He asks you questions that you can concoct clever answers to? Do you think you can talk your way out of a rotten situation, or bluff your way into a cozier afterlife?

Forget about it. Because the secret is: God only listens.

How awkward is that?

Imagine: you are standing in the presence of Absolutely Relentless Truth–and Absolutely Relentless Love.

Instead of being asked anything, the Total Spiritually Honest Presence of that Absolutely Relentless Truth and Absolutely Relentless Love will simply open your naked soul to It–completely:

It will listen to your life. With you.

Look into your life. With you.

Let you completely feel, and reveal, all your soul secrets.

It will let you observe–for the first time, with COMPLETE PROTECTIVE UNDERSTANDING–the deep-down gritty meanings of every struggle, hope, care and mistake cradled inside you.

Why this crazy, naked, painful process?

Because at the end of this rigorous Absolutely Relentless Truth exam–no matter what your score, however high or low, or whether or not you miserably failed on almost all counts of what you knew was important to you before you birthed into this ignorant physical life:

For precious timeless moments–when you will be bared to God, at exam’s end–you will feel comforted by a whole-souled joyful wave of that sea of Absolutely Relentless Love.

Beyond relief, beyond gratitude, beyond a joyful splash of YES! Thank you! from your heart that any words can express–

you will remember how it feels to BE truly alive.

What happens next?

You can’t remain in God’s Presence, or that of Jesus, or Buddha, or Mother Mary, or Krishna, or Allah, for long.

Why not?

Because you have to continue evolving your soul at that level of quality, of subtle honesty, of refined virtue–that you yourself have EARNED.

You have to go about your naturally assigned level of experience in that brave new World of Spirit. You can only learn from where you are. For example, what use entering a scribbler of mental graffiti in the Master Painter class? Or, what benefit would come from forcing an emotional tightwad into Grad School for Generous Hearts?

Whatever great or humble initiations come to you, you must EARN them. You will pass or fail them by your whole-souled service to God Reality, which is your Soul, and Sole, Reality.

Others may help you–Jesus may help bring you forgiveness, for example–God knows this is a spiritual fact–and your Earthly deeds may help bring you cleansing.

But wherever you are inside yourself today–whatever private Truths your heart of hearts speaks aloud upon demand–that is your future.

We can be grateful that God is pushing us and our whole human civilization–the good and the bad of us, the rough-polished gems and the rotten tomatoes of us–

wisely, lovingly moving us into what the World Teacher Maitreya calls The Age of Spiritual Honesty.

Good news! Because the more Real, the more True, the more Honest our lives get while we’re still alive–the better for everyone’s survival. The better for everyone’s happiness!

Please listen to your True Inner Voice. Hear what you’ve said all your life. Hear what Clear New Messages await your attention.

Listen to your heart. Truly, you are worthy of this act of self love.

Your Soul Does Survive: A Psychic Message from Beyond the Grave

Hot:

You’ll be inspired by this heart-felt spiritual poetry received from my family’s quirky 96-year old neighbor, RTG–

after his death.

He was a real character–

a cranky Theosophist metaphysician surviving “out in the sticks” who’d met the great Indian philosopher Krishnamurti–

and was far from a saint.

Please enjoy his poetic wisdom:

Survival of the Soul

Though the Sun may shine upon the Earth with the familiarity of a lover,
Though the Earth may cradle the four winds, rocking them gently like children,
Though the rocks of the Earth may cling together for dear survival,

I now have flown free of this Earth.

Vaulted over the stones that clutter my grave.

I have transcended Time and Space and all unreasoning doubts.
My soul now springs with feverish desire and burning inner peace
back towards my divine celestial home,
the home of all freed mankind:

The arms of the Holy Mother and the Holy Father await my arrival.
With patience and good cheer, they await the flap of my rusty wings.
I have taken flight, homeward-bound.

I glimpse so easily the Divine Home I once doubted I’d see, back when alive.

My flight home is the quiet sigh of a child in love.

O Bless the Earth’s children,
Divine Mother and Father.
O bind up their wounds,
O Celestial Mother.
O show them the way home,
O Celestial Father,
So that all mankind, living
Will cease to perish.

You have drawn in your breath with expectant wonder, O Divine Parents.

We are flying back home on this soft breeze of yours.
Back into your Bliss we surge,
by the billions.

I am amidst a great and humble family:
the Divine Children, all returning.

Just ahead, your warm light
Welcomes us home.”

–RTG

When RTG unexpectedly contacted me from his transition on The Other Side, he was caught up in a vast Christ Consciousness expansion.

Soon, his past life judgment would follow.

Thanks to the few clear-eyed souls who’ve “reported back to us” on their past life judgment, we know this climactic event pierces everyone’s heart to the quick.

Its purpose is NOT to punish us. Instead, it serves the Divine Will by awakening us to the deepest, toughest spiritual lessons of our newly ended life.

It serves as the culmination of our just-completed struggles. But why?

Because we have to INTEGRATE into our willful consciousness what we’ve done & experienced–with ALL of our delusions, ignorance and excuses REMOVED.

During this painful judgment we rediscover that, yes, God still LOVES US UNCONDITIONALLY.

If we think about that fact–honestly, considering our poor behavior–it’s incredible.

After gasping through our judgment–no matter how bad it was–we’re rewarded by experiencing massive relief at the fact we are still LOVED.

What happens next?

The Universe is an Ever-Practical Training School. So, we’re prepared for what we’ve earned as a new starting level of education and growth to experience while in the Spirit World or Heavens.

How do we learn and grow without our dense physical body?

We are given personal opportunities to serve the Divine Will that radiates through the Heavens around us like a Central Sun. Our “Work-Study Program” might take into account what we studied in our past life or might apply our special aptitudes to the situations at hand in the Heavens. It might be as simple as: over there’s a lost & confused soul newly arrived from Earth life, will you go try to help her?

There always exists an infinite number and variety of ever-changing ways to serve the Divine Will. To help others in their needs. Always, the degree we try to fill those needs in the moment with whatever love, competence and sincerity we can muster–that’s being re-taught to our reawakening minds as we go along–determines how much of that delightful Spiritual Sun from God we can refresh ourselves in.

This training and soul purging & cleansing lasts even through the evaluation where we prep for our next physical incarnation, no matter how near or far away that is in the physical world future.

We can see, there’s much to fear but far more to rejoice in about our judgment, eventually…

Have you ever wondered about the famous physicist Stephen Hawking’s claim that “Life after death is just a fairy tale”?

RTG’s words stand as stark poetic testament to the survival of your soul.

Spiritualism and Your Future Psychic Powers–Evil? Good? Real?

Hot:

We have but to open a Bible–to the Old or New Testament–to repeatedly find the teachings that though everyone’s physical body withers and dies, every individual’s spirit lives on. This beautiful truth is a cornerstone of Spiritualism–itself, a vital cornerstone of the future evolution of Christianity and all other world religions.

Innumerable demonstrations over the last centuries by sincere, capable, spiritual mediums, or “seers” or “prophets” as described in ancient times, have proven that spirits out of the body (spirits just like you and me, in the future) desire to, and under suitable conditions can, communicate with those of us still in the body.

Studies suggest that up to 37% of all people world-wide believe they’ve had a significant unexplainable intuition, or a paranormal experience where they consciously heard, saw, met, sensed–or even touched–a deceased loved friend, family member, pet–or a being they saw as an angel, spiritual teacher, or Godly Presence–who helped them, guided them, chastised them, comforted them–even saved their lives.

Such remarkable experiences do cut across a broad cross-section of all cultures and religions. They also include Christian Spiritualist church services and message circles where such gifts of the Spirit are welcomed, and capacity to receive them honed.

. . . Skeptics and fundamentalists might ask what possibly could be the “agenda” of supposedly normal people having paranormal experiences? Could they all be deranged or confused by stress? Trying to tear down their religions? Trying to “contact evil spirits”? Trying to shelter themselves in fantasy worlds?

Or one might ask are they having NATURAL experiences–natural for the human race as it evolves & spiritually awakens from its sleep?

What percentage of the normal average human population’s souls does it take, for these experiences to be commonly accepted as real? As vital? And most importantly, as part of everyone’s spiritual awakening and essence–necessary for every religion to be able to initiate and GUIDE its adherents into?

. . . Of course, just as you hopefully wouldn’t heed the opinions or claims of every stranger that might try to bend your ear in the middle of Times Square, you also wouldn’t listen to every spirit being, or sensation, that might approach your clairvoyant “listening senses” or bring you a paranormal experience.

You would only want contact from spirits dwelling on an honorable, honest, awakened level of existence. You would reserve the right to judge whether what they say or do is relevant to you, intelligent, non-manipulative, and done in kindness. You’d want all negative contacts to “bounce off you”, or to just sail past as if you’re living on different dimensions.

You would want to surround yourself with complete loving protection, just as many surround themselves with the “sword, shield and armor” of the great Archangel Michael, renowned in Christianity, Judaism and Islam as the protector of those faithful enough to ask his help.

Wisely, you’d also ask–meaning, you’d declare as your energetic reality–that you receive contact only from spirits from the Highest Realms who accept The Light of Christ. No matter what your or that departed or enlightened soul’s religion, acceptance of reality of the Christ Light (in its Infinite Goodness and Purity) is understood in the Spirit World as a test question that must be answered honestly and clearly.

Only then would you want to proceed. Even then, you’d want to feel free to accept only those results that ring true in your heart, and make sense to your head.

Of course much heightened wisdom is rejected by our skulls though our hearts pound with its power. And many illusions and fancies grab at our hearts even as our brains say no. Growing in discernment can happen only through guided experience.

Despite all our trial-and-error learning, we as a race are entering the dawn of those future days spoken of in The Book of Isaiah, when visions, prophecies and wisdom dreams will come to the old and the young.

But many fear this dawn and these exciting concepts.

Why?

Because most of the sacred words of the religions were written down and recited by those inspired of God many centuries ago. Since those days and those prophets are long gone, what happens to those religions as their children grow into more direct access to the founts of wisdom?

Will the religions be twisted beyond recognition of their precious founding truths? Will they be ignored and cast aside? Or will they evolve into ever-greater daily blessings for their members, to provide deeper, more fulfilling passageways through life’s problems and possibilities?

Will God’s Change Energies and the New Christ Energies revolutionize everything for the better?

Peace and Happiness to you,
Rev. Scott Ufford
