My dear soul friend, Evelina in Russia, often says, "Life Continues." I guess that has gotten her through so many dreadful times in Russia. We see many lives not continuing here, in real-time on our television sets and various "smart" devices. The horrors are part of our lives. It is hard to understand.
Meditating the other day, a quote from Shakespeare floated into mind:
- All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.
Suddenly I saw a vision of a grand sweep of the journey of souls. I saw lines of souls signing up for various lessons and experiences in their next lives, usually with a sort of helper guiding the choices. I saw how, in some ways, it is play-acting, and in other ways life's roles are curriculum needed by the soul in order to develop, expand, and be more of who they are. I saw once again how life actually does continue after this little role is played and the stage is exited.
I also saw how it is our calling, our assignment, to play our roles as honestly and as fully as humanly possible. We are not to sluff off and give up. We are to do our best, our actual best.
I saw how grand the exit is, to the Light, to the moment of accountability. There is the time of self-evaluation, of how well one did this time. There are some lovingly asked questions.
And the soul continues.
