I hate to talk on a morbid subject as death.
But I often have people ask me what it was like when I was faced with my own possible death.
Yes I was scared shitless, but the possibility of my own death was very revealing.
However, my facing death younger than most was a GIFT.
I want to share with you my experience when I thought I would DIE when I had Stage 4 Cancer. It was scary!
But sometimes scary situations allow us to reach down deeper into our own souls to receive an ANSWER. And sometimes that answer is not what we intended to receive.
The problem with this world is too much drama going on and that we too often get stuck in our desires for wealth, things, and even relationships, and many other trivialities that come along.
What I learned as I was about to die was that I need to get UNSTUCK from every worldly thing. I noticed one thing when people are to die; is how stuck they are on all of those worldly ideas and things and yes trivialities before they exit stage left.
Have you ever played the game of “Give Away”.
Everyone has in her life played checkers. The object of the game is to take away the other persons pieces before he can take away yours.
However, the game of “Give Away” is completely the opposite. The goal is simply to give away all of your pieces to win. That is what playing give away and getting unstuck means before you pass on.
I think of Buffet and Gates and all those men with wealth. I ask myself are they willing to give it all away before they die. Or are they permanently STUCK. That is a question they need to answer before they take the plunge.
But it is also something that you and I must face, and I believe it is better to face it younger, than older, because life is so fragile, we never know when GOD may pull the plug.
I watch the ads on TV for St. Jude’s medical center. The ad suggests for $19 a month you can help a child with cancer. As you offer to give some child his or her life is what they ask us adults to do. We adults in our need to reach out, think of what a child who dies will miss if they can’t experience an adult life.
However, not that I wish any of them the possibility of dying young, for the ad suggests that 1 in 5 will die. Imagine one of them facing death in comparison to one of us doing the same. Because they are not adults, they are not very much stuck as you and I. Somehow I think they have an advantage, because those who do die; were free to come and now are free to go.
However, you and I have a lot of stuff, to chuck one we go. Well, facing death, allowed for me to think seriously now that I am here, what I need to keep and what needs to go.
So getting unstuck in a very stick world, has become a TOP PRIORITY.
Let’s be frank. I like the good things of life like everyone else. However, like playing the game called “Give Away” I do like having a nice home, nice clothes, I like to look after myself physically, and enjoy all the niceties that everyone wants.
But the things that I receive, I put in TRUST for an important reason. I have put all my real estate holdings and other wealth in TRUST, not just to avoid paying taxes and give what I have to my children and charities, but it is simply to set in my mind that once I go, I am willing to give it all away.
Yes, not just physically but emotionally allow all of this stuff, to be GONE. That is the gift I received knowing that I would sometime die, and what I needed to do to prepare.
