The first time I reached my mother through a medium she said, “You were right about everything!” That was good to hear, but it made me groan because this woman had resisted all my efforts to convince her she would survive her death. I had read to her from The Fun of Dying. I had told her repeatedly how it all works, how excited I was that she would be there soon, and which loved ones might be coming to take her home. Not every day, but often I would find ways to reintroduce the topic. Sadly, though, as Jesus tells us, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household” (MT 13:57). My mother never believed a word! She had to see it for herself. And like the loving but demanding parent that she always had been, as soon as she had assured me I was right, she added, “Now I’m traveling around to make sure you have everything right.” (We don’t change after death nearly as much as we might wish we would!)
In case you are wondering why I was confident I was talking with my actual mother, there were some great validations. For example, my mother had almost nonexistent eyebrows, and after the medium said my mother was now checking my work, she added, “But why is she pointing at her eyebrow? Oh. She says now she doesn’t have to paint them on.”
Alas, my mother is not an outlier. Fear of death is the core human fear, and that fear remains rampant in 2019 even though for nearly a century now we have had overwhelming evidence that every human mind is eternal. And together with that ego-based fear of death, too many people also have a terrible religion-based fear of God, even though we also know for certain that all that objectively exists is the transcendent love of the genuine God that continuously manifests this universe. And you in particular are God’s best-beloved child! The harm done by all this fear-based negativity is compounded by the fact that mainstream scientists still have no idea about what actually is going on, so they perpetuate the rampant fear on earth which is the worst human-caused pollution of all.
To know why negativity is so dangerous, you will need to better understand how consciousness works. Since every human mind is part of one great Consciousness, for too many minds to be obsessed by fear can have severe consequences on the macro-level. The aggregate of the highest level of Consciousness – what Mikey Morgan calls “the unity of pure love and all that exists” – is the genuine God that continuously manifests this universe. Consciousness is a kind of energy so it vibrates, and its vibratory rate is from the slowest, which is fear and the other awful emotions, to absolute love at the highest level. And since all our minds are part of the same base Consciousness, our minds all influence one another, so a tendency toward fear in any significant number of people will drive down the vibratory rate of us all. Humankind’s obsessive drive toward fear comes largely from the ego’s fear of death, from fear-based religions, and from the scientific insistence that our minds die with our brains. And because both religions and science perpetuate fear rather than helping humankind to grow beyond it, our fear has gradually lowered our entire planet’s vibratory rate to the point where we are told now that unless we soon can elevate humankind away from fear and toward more perfect love, our planet will rapidly degrade from here. Our species soon will face extinction.
I haven’t talked much about this existential threat to all humanity. Researchers don’t entirely understand it, but we are getting the warnings and by now we understand it well enough. This sense we have that things are getting worse, that human interaction is becoming more rancorous, is the result of too much fear and hatred, and it is no longer self-correcting. So we cannot afford to let anyone on earth remain ignorant of how much our planet needs us! It is going to be essential that each of us learns how to raise our own consciousness vibration so we can do our part in ridding the earth of the awful human poisons of fear and negativity. Each of us has a responsibility now to learn how to ditch our old fears of death, of God, and of suffering some horrific outcome! In fact, the genuine greater reality is love beyond our ability to comprehend it. Your mind is a beautiful, powerful, eternal, and infinite part of all that love.
Deciding to take your own spiritual growth as seriously as you will need to take it if you are to help to save the world is going to be your gateway to the greatest joy there is! To quote the Introduction to A Course in Miracles, “This is a course in miracles. It is a required course. … The course does not aim at teaching the meaning of love, for that is beyond what can be taught. It does aim, however, at removing the blocks to the awareness of love’s presence, which is your natural inheritance. The opposite of love is fear, but what is all-encompassing can have no opposite. This course can therefore be summed up very simply in this way: ‘Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists.’ Herein lies the peace of God” (In-1:1-8; 2:1-4). And to quote Master Jesus, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” (JN 8:31-32). Therefore, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened” (MT 7:7-8).
All we need do to free ourselves from fear is to take some time to learn the truth! The truth about what is going on is so much more wonderful than your most optimistic imaginings that, as Jesus says, your learning that truth will set you free from fear and from every other kind of negativity. So here is a quick tutorial meant for everyone who is afraid of death, or really afraid of anything at all. Internalize these facts, and soon you will be free from fear forevermore!
Learn the truth by heart and let it free you from fear. Each of us must do our part! The earth faces a present threat that few people even know exists, and we may have little more than a century in which to raise its vibration enough to save our home planet from burning away. Without our help, rampant low-vibration consciousness is about to make global climate change look by comparison like a day at the beach.
