As a car is a vehicle that gets us from one place to another (and there are many other types of vehicles that can do this), the body is the soul's vehicle while we are here on earth. A car cannot take us anywhere without a driver to operate it. Yet, the driver is not the car; and the car is not the driver. A car will wear out; but the driver does not stay with it in the junkyard. The driver simply gets a different car to drive. Ann's soul was the driver of her body. Ann's vehicle contained some parts that wore out and her vehicle could no longer run without them. However, the real Ann, the driver, the soul, the spirit, essence, higher self, the "I AM" presence; whatever your name is for that super-consciousness, did not go anywhere. She is simply driving a nonphysical vehicle now, suitable for her new surroundings, but we cannot perceive it because we are still focused in a reality based upon the limitations imposed by physical time and space.
It is my belief that our consciousness can and does exist outside this physical reality which it allows us to perceive. The soul is indestructible - the soul is eternal
it has no beginning and no end… it simply "is". The soul is pure energy, and as
such, it is constantly in motion, constantly changing form, leaving a magnetic field of energy as a memory of itself through each atom and molecule it passes. It leaves a part of itself, also, with us in what is called our memories. A part of Ann will always be alive in our memories of her. We feel sad, today, as we mourn her passing, but it time, fond memories will replace our tears.
Love and blessings to you all.
I would like to read another short quote from the Bible, from St. John, 11, Verses: 25 and 26.
"Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life: He that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.'"
At this time, I would like to share a few of my reflections about my life with my mother and some of the fond memories I have of her.
What can I say about my mother? She had a strong sense of responsibility toward her family and was always concerned about our welfare and what would be in our best interest. She was an old-fashioned homemaker and stay-at-home mother, who
