THIS QUOTE MAKES ME CRAZY
“You’ll never get it done. You cannot get it wrong. So don’t you think it’s time for you to lighten up and start having more fun with all of this, and accept that you are Eternal Beings?
And since you are Eternal Beings, then there’s no point in rushing, because there’s never going to be a time when you don’t exist.” Abraham from Abraham-Hicks Publication.
Abraham is a channeled voice. Well, I can live with that. Who cares where wisdom comes from?
But still, like, where does Abraham live and speak from unless he’s is Hick’s own unconscious, subconscious thought?
The quote is relieving and unsettling on so many levels:
I really really know we won’t get IT done. I was struck by that truth when my parents died withing ten days of one another. Yes I put closure on their physical life as I shut down the house and got rid of all their trappings. They went out in the middle. There were new clothes in a bag with price tags still on them. The wall calendar had lunch dates and church activities circled. There was damp laundry in the washing machine. We do die in the middle with unfinished everything—ambitions,
reconciliations, loving words unsaid. Still I balk at the messiness implied and would like lives to end like a good novel.
Accepting that we already are eternal beings is so reassuring isn’t it? It makes Jesus’ historic life much more palatable from a kind of cosmic science point of view. But being implies ‘body’ to me which then conjures up heaven and I’m back to nuts again. I imagine us as soul blogs bouncing around til we slide down the ramp (like the emergency exit on a plane) into another body to learn a little more and get some good done. Does it get crowded in eternity??
What would change for you if you really knew you were an eternal being?
Would you lighten up, have more fun?
Would you care about the impact of your life more or less?
Would you be reeeaaaallllly lazy?
Would you just walk around loving people?
What would you do about other’s inhumane actions.
I love the quote. I love what it implies. I’m glad it makes me think. I’m not sure how it changes my day.
