Know that we are timeless spiritual/energetic beings—and death is not a “goodbye,” just a “see you later.”
Dr. Mark Pitstick

While sitting at the beach recently, I saw an elderly man walking alone. Moving slowly, he periodically gazed out at the water and sky, and looked very sad. I felt moved to talk with him and, after a few minutes of small talk, I discovered why.

As his eyes swelled with tears, Dan told me that his wife of 42 years had recently died. He was especially struggling with her death because they both had lost faith in their religion many years ago. It began when they asked their minister important questions like: “Why does our church teach that an unbaptized baby might not go to heaven?” and “Why does our church teach that people who get divorced for very good reasons may not go to heaven?”

In each case, the answer was, “That’s just what our church believes and you have to accept it on faith.” These answers drove them away from the church and their faith. Over the years, he said, they both had come to believe that when you die, you die, and that’s it.

Dan wasn’t feeling very inspired. The root meaning of the word “inspiration” is “in spirit.” In his uninspired state, he suffered spiritual amnesia and forgot that he, his wife, and everyone else are infinite beings of spirit/consciousness/energy. What’s more, we each are one with the One and part of Source Energy right now— not maybe, someday if we believe or do certain things.

Fully 99.999 percent of who we are is light and energy; the physical body is a mere fraction of our entire being. In fact, it’s an optical illusion that we are just solid physical beings. Any good chemist or physicist will tell you that.
