“Do not stand on my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn’s rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in the circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.”

We have fully accepted and believe that we are a separate self functioning as a human form…this makes it difficult to perceive our self as intelligent flow revealing itself both in infinite forms and formlessness throughout eternity…the eternal intelligent flow may be the true meaning of our belief in a “soul”….although we largely identify with our human form, our existence depends primarily in the formless background  in ways  beyond our conscious awareness….there is no death or end to intelligent flow but only a continuous and integral change in the oneness of form and formlessness… our personal death is simply the changing of our human form.

“Eternity is not something that begins after you’re dead. It is going on all the time. We are in it now.” ~Charlotte Perkins Gilman
