Secret Society gearing up and preparing for 2012
We are all aware of it, we have all "lost" someone to it, and if you watch TV, you see it reported on most every day somewhere. But what is death,
anyway? Some people are obsessed with death, and some just don't care anymore.
I used to work in a funeral home. I was in preliminary training to be a mortician. We had someone come in most every day or so, and my job was to wash
and clean the body, hair, and so on, and get it ready for my boss, who would do the incisions and apply the embalming fluid. The bodies were cold, and
dead. You could do anything to them and they would not draw away, or voice a protest. That which animated the body was gone to another place, and what
was left was nothing but a cold, dead receptacle where a person used to live.
The thing that struck me funny, and still does is how the survivors will spend out thousands of dollars to "respect the dead," even though the dead
person may not have been such a good person alive. Bills of $20,000 were common, and this was in the 70s, I can't imagine how much it costs today.
Usually a person would get up there and talk about the dead guy/girl,and would say things that were out and out lies, for everyone seems to be good
when they are dead.

But we are talking about human death, aren't we?
How many people reading this knows that you are an Immortal Being, a Spirit, that inhabits a human body for a time?
How many think that when the body dies, the spirit dies too? How many have had a Near Death Experience? A Past Life Experience? How may can actually
remember things from a past life? How many times have you met someone new, and deep down, knew that you know this person, even though you had never
seen them before?
The NDE and Reincarnation
Kevin Williams' research conclusions
Reincarnation is considered by some to be the greatest "unknown" scientific discovery of modern times. In the last chapter of Dr. Ian Stevenson's
book entitled Twenty Cases Suggestive of Reincarnation (1967), he provides exhaustive scientific reasoning which concludes that reincarnation is the
only viable explanation that fits the facts of his study. He considers every possible alternative explanation for his twenty cases of young children
who were spontaneously able to describe a previous lifetime as soon as they learned to talk. He was able to rule out alternative explanations using
one or more of his cases. Later research also bolstered his findings in favor of the reality of reincarnation. His study is also reproducible for any
skeptic who doubts the validity of his study to repeat it for themselves. I believe it is only a matter of time before these findings are realized by
the scientific community to be one of the great scientific discoveries of all time.
I know many Christians in here will gladly debate me that reincarnation is not real, but I know better. Now I know that when we do incarnate into a
human body on this world, all memories are wiped clean, but sometimes a glitch in the program causes a person to remember.
My own past live memories began entirely spontaneously. As a young boy, I often had clear memory of being in battle, I could hear the gunshots, and
smell the gunpowder and hear the screams of the dead and dying. This still goes on to this day. I can sometimes "see" dead people, and I have
"seen" 6 soldiers of a forgotten era that have somehow stayed with me all of these years. For what purpose, I do not know.
I have been through past life regression. I can remember little events and snips of many previous lives, and if one researches this on the internet,
one can find many things refering to this. To me, Death is a misnomer. It isn't real.
We human beings are containers for a soul. the soul is important, the body is not. When I choose to leave this world, or that choice is made for me, I
will step out of this human container and still be quite alive.

Saul and the Witch of Endor
You see, we don't really die! We are all Immortal Beings! We are Spirit, not human. People have gotten so deep into their technologies that they have
forgotten who they really are. They think of themselves as their profession first, name second, and political flavor or religion next. Ask me, I will
say, "I am Spirit, and I live in and inhabit this body you see here." You are Spirit too, friend, never forget this.
A few months ago, I was sitting on my sofa watching TC. All of a sudden like the room got very quiet. I realized that I had stepped out, or was pulled
out of my body and was standing there in front of it in true Spirit form. This happened three times. I think it was meant to show me that this is how
it will be, you know, WTSHTF.
Questions, anyone? Love and Light to All Beings.
