For you old souls out there, do you think so many of you are here to help those of the pandemic cross over?

And us newbies are here to learn and step-up into your big, big shoes?

Thank you Ananla.
It is only a testament to the Spirit and people that have blessed my
Life with little pieces of themselves that we all share in.

@Anala i think we can all play a part in helping people whether it is to cross over through the pandemic or otherwise
I am an old soul but i wont be back i walk my final path.that is a good thing in my eyes , i dont think i could put up with another lifetime.
The amount of people i have helped to get to where they needed to be in work etc is huge,
Where are they now i have no idea i used to hear from them all the time as soon as they reached their goal i heard no more,
that is just another example of helping.


Namaste

Small World.

The Urantia people have a commune not too far from where I live. They seem like real nice people. They used to reside in Sedona.

Sure we can wait for physical death to wake, or we can read some Rumi.

In truth everything and everyone
Is a shadow of the Beloved,
And our seeking is His seeking
And our words are His words...
We search for Him here and there,
...while looking right at Him.
Sitting by His side, we ask:
'O Beloved, where is the Beloved?'
Rumi

There are indeed various "dying before physical death" practices and, as you duly noted, we can either wait for physical death to wake ... or we can get guidance from masters like Rumi regarding how to awaken NOW in this lifetime.
