Here is a thought I wanted to share today. It is quick, but very important. The audio explains things, but remember to forgive yourself and others. Don’t carry the past, it is too heavy. Don’t lift the future, it has not happened yet. Give yourself permission to live now.
Episode three of Zen Audio Journeys looks into something of the apps I use in my spiritual practice. I also talk about my daily practice. Enjoy!

Why Are We Afraid of Death?
It is the unknown. The unknown of the EGO.
You see, We are spiritual beings, we are only temporarily
in this human life. We are in this life to work through
things, to figure things out, to grow and realize our
spiritual selves. We then graduate back to the all,
We have built an identity in this human life. This
is who we are! But it is not, it is only who we are
in the physical realm. We are so much more.
We worry about what happens when we die. Where
will we go? Is this all there is? Will we be with
friends and loved ones? Will we be in paradise? will
we be punished?
These are all natural questions of the human condition.
That is why we practice and work with our spiritual
nature, to get these answers. And the answer is both
simple and complicated.
We are one with God. We return to God once
our work is done. We can sense God, and be in a
relationship with God. But true understanding is
above our human mind’s knowledge.
We both know and don’t know. Once you are on your
journey, you will understand that.
For those not yet on their journey, fear of human
death is somewhat normal. For those on their
spiritual journey, the fear fades as we know we
are already One with God. All is good. Right?
Well, we are still all human here. Some days will
be clearer than others. When stresses of the
world build, we doubt. We fear. That is why it
is so important to center yourself in prayer and
meditation everyday. To practice mindfulness. Practice
breathing in long checkout lines. Practice calm when
someone is confronting you.
Just Be, Just Breath, Just know…
We got this.
Be Seeing You, Cheers
