Have you ever felt that you could help more people if you were not encapsulated in a physical body?!
Your very being — pure energy — is all that you will have after shedding your physical body at death. Then you will only have purely spiritual powers and techniques to help yourself, your loved ones and humanity at large.
I am reminded of Obi-Wan Kenobi in the first Star Wars movie — when he allowed Darth Vader to “kill” him. On the surface it appeared tragic, but the glimmer in Obi-Wan’s eyes conveyed only confidence. Not until he started communicating from “there” did we understand that he could support Luke from “there” even more than when he was alive.
It was Yoda who taught Obi-Wan, while they were both still incarnated, how to access higher non-physical states. In the same way you can learn not only about these higher states, but how to do spiritual work from these higher states. Some of the methods are known — prayer, will, purity, etc. And everyday problems dissolve in the presence of strong otherworldly higher consciousness.
My friend, while you are still in a body will you endeavor to learn the spiritual tools that you will use when you have graduated from your physical body?
The Masters tell us that the ONLY opportunity we have to learn these things is when we are incarnated as a human being. After we die we lose most of our faculties of learning. So, we must train here on earth if we want to be useful during the next phase of our soul’s journey (after physical death).
We are all working, but are we working on the right things?
Maybe each of us could give a little more attention to our spiritual nature?
Are you up for the challenge?
