The After-Life

“The after-life has simply a time of increased choice because it has been a time of increased awareness.  (The Treatises of A Course of Love:  ‘A Treatise on the New,’ 5.13)”

Affirmation:  “increased choice because increased awareness”

Reflections:

Jesus is here saying that we can know in the elevated Self of form those things that formerly we could only know after death, on the Other Side (“the after-life”).

Now we can have this awareness without crossing the barrier of death.  What a lovely thought for those of us who have always had lots of curiosity about the true nature of reality.

Enjoying the knowing that comes to us is a great boon.  We need not fret and struggle so, but rest in the knowledge (and it is knowledge) that all is well.  What happens is meant to happen.

Prayer:

Dear Father/Mother,

May I rest in certainty that the after-life will be something which I will enjoy tremendously.  But let me not live in longing for that which is ahead.  May I live in greater awareness and greater choice today, in this world, as well.  May I enjoy the real world that shows before my eyes as I let illusions, the dream in which I am caught, dissipate.

Thank You for the greater awareness and greater choice for today that You have already granted me.  May my gratitude color the interactions that I have with others today.

Amen.
