In the physical world, it looks like things occur in a linear sequence. And so it goes with the process of leaving this world. First we see a tunnel of light, then we see loved ones greeting us from the Other Side. Then the light gets stronger as deeper feelings of peace and wonder enfold us. Finally we “see” God and become absorbed into the blissful One.
But once we are free from the constraints of the body and the way the mind categorizes and organizes reality, we are free from time as well. We see that everything is all happening at once in the vastness of it all.
The human mind is limited by so many variables—our conditioning, our DNA, and its natural propensity to seek order and patterns in a logical sequence for the sake of our survival. Once we are free from its mechanisms and the need to get things done, we are part of the Cosmic Consciousness that cannot be expressed in words.
