I haven't blogged for a long time, because many things in my life fell apart after the sudden, unexpected passing of the man I loved for thirteen years, Ron Conroy. But during the past eighteen months, I've undertaken a new type of writing––with his assistance. That probably sounds strange, but every day since he left this plane of existence, Ron has communicated with me from the so-called "other side," which he refers to simply as "home."
What he's told me and shown me totally transformed my ideas about what happens after we leave Planet Earth. After Ron conveyed many experiences of life after death to me, I began reading books by researchers in the field. (The best, in my opinion, are Dr. Michael Newton's Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls.) To my surprise, many things I read concurred with what Ron had shared with me. I'd never heard most of this before, and just knowing that other people had similar experiences gave me comfort and confirmation.
So, being a writer, I started writing a novel about what I'd learned, titled The Three Wounds of Wisdom. At first I considered writing a nonfiction book, but many people have already done that, most of them MDs, PhDs, and folks with more "credentials" than I have. Plus I like writing fiction better, and sometimes it's easier to present unusual or thought-provoking ideas as fiction, so readers don't feel the author is trying to convince them of something. I changed the characters, the storyline, the location, and lots more––but all the information about what transpires between our lives on earth and elsewhere came through to me during meditative trances and other experiences with Ron since he's moved on. My beta-readers and advisory group are examining the manuscript now, and I hope to make it available to readers soon. My goal is to help those of you who've suffered the devastating pain of losing someone you love, and to give you hope. I also want to open a forum for people who've had near-death experiences and other awarenesses to share what they witnessed.
In the meantime, I decided to start blogging about "the great beyond." In each post, I plan to offer one or more pieces of information that Ron has conveyed to me. All of us have wondered what happens when we die and why we came to earth in the first place. In the last year and a half, I've received answers to those and other big questions. The most important, IMO, is why are we here? One reason: to bring love to the world.
In our true "home" love is omnipresent. We carry some of that great love with us, in the form of energy, when we assume physical bodies here on earth. Our primary job is to radiate that love to everyone, everywhere, in everything we do. In this way, we overcome the force of fear that dominates our earth-thinking. Only two forces exist in the universe: love and fear. Each moment, we have the choice to operate from a place of love or a place of fear. It's that simple––and that difficult.
As I write this blog, and in The Three Wounds of Wisdom, my objective is to follow this mandate to the best of my ability. If I can lighten your fear and sadness in even the smallest way, I will feel I've accomplished my goal. The old Beatles' song says it best: "All You Need Is Love."
