My mother just passed away and one of her friends said, “Well, you are orphans now.” People have an odd way of giving their condolences. The other gesture of condolence that I heard a lot of was “Your mother is in a better place.” How do they know? I believe that my mother is in whatever place that she conceives herself to be, surrounded and infused with love and light. Whether it is better or not, I do not know.
Do we know more than we do here? How can we really answer these questions. I only know that Love is all there is. I feel that. I know that my mother is Love.
As far as being an orphan, this is a strange remark. I’m not sure if she was trying to make me feel better or if she was just trying to shed some humor on the whole thing. I couldn’t say anything in the moment; however, what I know is I could never be an orphan.
I come from Divine substance. My real parentage is Divine. This is what I believe. I do not inherit anything from the earth, unless I choose to embrace the thoughts of those who birthed me and raised me. I choose to rise above that. I am new. I am eternal.
I can’t be an orphan because that would signify that there is an ending to life. There isn’t. Yes, I came into the world through my mother’s womb, but I was here before that and before that. Do you remember ever not being here?
These things I know are deep within me and cannot be denied. I feel them and if you want to, you can feel them, too. Just check in. It is obvious. It makes spiritual sense and spiritual sense is all there is. I am a Being known as Rita in this life, born of eternal heavenly substance, and so are my brothers and sister. So, are all of us!
Love and Aloha,
