Poker as a Metaphor for Death

Previously, Lanny was learning from Death the loving job of assisting in transitions. In this installment, the learning continues... with a twist. On only my fourth transition as the “lead” (as a lead, I was responsible for taking the soul and for all communication, while Death stayed in the background and observed me), I had no one to lead because Death had a prior commitment. So there I sat, staring at my next assist, trying to remember everything I needed to do, as well as keeping my mind on... Sign in to see full entry.

Death is a Gentle Soul

In the previous installment, Lanny had figured out how to move objects (even though he is dead) so that he could leave a sign for Julie. We pick up with Lanny attending more transitions. Over the next month or so, Death picked up the pace on attending transitions, so that I might have more opportunities to see a true master at work. Some transitions were easy to observe, if watching someone die can ever be called easy. Those that you would expect to be easy (an elderly man ready to move on; a... Sign in to see full entry.

Being Dead is Not as Easy as it Looks

In the previous installment, Lanny didn't want to watch as his mother got the calling telling her he was dead. So he and Death left. I focused on Death as he vanished, and was soon moving with him toward what would be my first transition. I watched as Death assisted a terminally ill young woman. I could tell that she was very scared of dying, but as soon as he sat down on her bed, grabbed her hand and began to talk with her, even though he appeared to her as the Grim Reaper (a result of her...

The Light After Death Does Not Always Come

In the last installment, Lanny didn't want to watch his mom get the call about his death, so he and Death leave his parent's house. I watched as Death disappeared. Doing as he said, I focused my mind on going with him and the next thing I knew I was kind of floating next to him in some kind of void or something. And it wasn’t really me floating. I mean, it was me, but there didn’t seem to be any real structure to “me”. I was just “there”. And though I could feel we were moving, I couldn’t tell... Sign in to see full entry.

If You Really Want to See Beauty, Try Death

In the last installment, Lanny had just realized that it was a hard parking lot his was about to land on, not a soft meadow. Also, I'm off on a four-day motorcycle trip, so see everybody next Tuesday Well, it didn’t hurt. There was no feeling of pain, just one of release. I remember closing my eyes and hitting the pavement and then a kind of whooshing sound and that feeling of release. The next thing I knew, I was standing next to my smooshed and flattened body. “Damn, that’s gonna take someone... Sign in to see full entry.

Ooops! I Goofed! Please Read the Following Post!

Sorry folks! Wiley picked up that I posted the same installment two times in a row. I don't know how that happened! The following is the next installment, where we find Lanny preparing for the jump with the rest of the class. Since the class I was in was for a static line jump and not a tandem jump, the training was more rigorous, and there for longer in duration. We started at 10:00 and finished around 4:00 pm. And though it was fairly simple, I really started to struggle with things in the... Sign in to see full entry.

In Death's Eye, No One is Special

In the previous installment, Lanny had handed off his dog to a friend and reviewed his final things to get done list one more time before heading off for skydiving school. As I drove toward the school, I was really amazed at how excited I was. Though I was about to die, I just couldn’t keep from smiling, knowing that I would soon be embarking on another part of the journey that was unlike anything I had experienced before (well, at least unlike anything I remembered experiencing). I pulled into... Sign in to see full entry.

Even in Death, One Must Keep up Appearances

In the last installment Lanny had handed over his dog Chance to a friend and prepared to drive to skydiving school: As I drove toward the school, I was really amazed at how excited I was. Though I was about to die, I just couldn’t keep from smiling, knowing that I would soon be embarking on another part of the journey that was unlike anything I had experienced before (well, at least unlike anything I remembered experiencing). I pulled into the parking lot of the skydiving school about 10 minutes... Sign in to see full entry.

Our Soul Partners Pop Into Our Minds When its Important

In the last installment, Lanny had just told Julie good bye and to not forget to look for signs: I was worried that Friday evening that I wouldn’t sleep and that I would be a bit scared come Saturday morning, but nothing could have been further from the truth. I played with Chance for nearly an hour, and then loved him up while watching a little TV. I fell asleep just after my head hit the pillow. I awoke around 3:00 am that morning thinking about Julie. No thoughts about dying. No anxiousness,... Sign in to see full entry.

Signs That Tell us of Our Divinity Are All Around - if Only We Would Look

In the last installment, Lanny had set up his skydiving lesson for the upcoming week end: I got home from work that Thursday evening, had a little dinner, and slipped into a bit of a funk. While eating I realized that I only had about 36 hours until I was dead - at least how I had always known myself would be dead. It was a rather sobering thought, but it forced me to begin to think about my friends and family and how I should deal with them and my immanent death. At first I thought I might tell...
