At the core of each living human being is an angel, perfect and whole. The angel is the “being” part of you; your body, mind and heart are the “human” part of you. Your true identity, then, is angelic, mighty and eternal.
If you make the mistake as many do of identifying more with the outer part of you – your body, mind or heart – than you do with the inner part of you – the angel that you are – both time and death will be misconstrued as enemies to your existence.
The outer part of you is temporal; the inner, eternal. The outer form comes and goes with the passage of time. You are a “living soul” while you have a body, mind and heart, that is, an angel incarnate. Incarnation is a noun of action formed from the past participle stem of the Latin incarnare, which means “to make flesh.” While you are a living soul on earth you are an angel made flesh.
When you really come to terms with this you realize that death is not to be feared, for it is merely the passing of an outer form of an eternal angel. At the same time, you begin to understand how precious the time we have on earth really is.
Your body, mind and heart are meant to allow you, the angel, to express blessing into a new level of creation. You have precious little time on earth to learn this art, so center in love, be swift to forgive, see beyond the confines of your fleshy form and acknowledge the angel in each one.
If you or someone you love is staring death in the eye, you need neither fear death nor scorn time.
We are eternal.
