Death and Culture

edited May 2013 in Death
The doctor commented that he loses much energy around the experience of a patient dying.

WELL, UNFORTUNATELY, IN THIS CULTURE DEATH HAS LONG BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH PUNISHMENT, AND THIS SPILLS OVER ONTO THE FAMILY AND THOSE IN ATTENDANCE. IN CULTURES ACCEPTING THE TEACHINGS OF REINCARNATION EVEN THIS OCCASIONALLY HAPPENS, ESPECIALLY IN THOSE THAT ESPOUSE REINCARNATION TO A LOWER ORDER. IF YOU REGARD DEATH AS “BAD”, THEN NATURALLY YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE ENERGY WHEN THIS “BAD” HAPPENS. ALSO, IF YOU PROJECT EXPECTATIONS OF HEALING UPON THE PATIENT AND HIS ATTENDANTS YOU ARE GOING TO FEEL A SENSE OF FAILURE WHEN YOU DO NOT FULFILL THESE EXPECTATIONS. YES, YOU CAN GO TO GREAT AND HEROIC LENGTHS TO PROLONG THE PHYSICAL LIFE, BUT OFTEN TO THE GREAT DISCOMFORT OF BOTH THE PATIENT AND HIS FAMILY. OFTEN THE DEATH OF SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN PAINFULLY ILL FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME COMES AS A DISTINCT RELIEF TO THE MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY, EVEN THOUGH THEY WOULD BE UNABLE TO VERBALIZE IT. SOMETIMES YOU CAN DO THEM A DISSERVICE BY PROLONGING AGONY THAT THEY MUST SUFFER VICARIOUSLY. IF HEALING IS TO TAKE PLACE IT WILL BE FAR MORE DRAMATIC THAN MERE ANALGESIA, AND THESE ARE THOSE CASES IN WHICH YOU MAY PUT YOUR SKILLS TO THE TASK. BUT IN CASES WHERE THERE IS NO HEALING POSSIBLE, THE MOST YOU CAN OFFER IS COMFORT, AND USUALLY THIS WOULD BE BETTER DIRECTED TOWARD THOSE TO BE LEFT BEHIND. MANY VERY ILL PERSONS HAVE AN ACUTE AWARENESS OF THEIR IMPENDING DEATH, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS THIS IS MANY TIMES MORE VALUABLE THAN ANY USELESS LAST DRASTIC TREATMENT. WE WOULD HOPE TO SEE IN THE FUTURE MORE COUNSELING DIRECTED TOWARD THOSE WHO WILL BE LEFT WITH A LIFE TO LIVE, AFTER THE DEATH HAS OCCURRED. MANY TIMES DURING A LONG ILLNESS THESE PERSONS NEED THE MOST HELP, CERTAINLY MORE THAN ONE WHO HAS DIED. WE WISH WE COULD GRAPHICALLY ILLUSTRATE THE AWARENESS THAT A DYING PERSON FEELS. WE FEEL THAT IT WOULD PUT YOUR FEARS TO REST. MANY TIMES THIS AWARENESS EVEN BECOMES AN INTENSE LONGING TOWARD THE LAST. YOU ALL KNOW WHERE THE LINE CAN BE DRAWN BETWEEN A CASE IN WHICH THERE CAN BE A HEALING AND THE CASE IN WHICH THERE WILL BE IMMINENT DEATH. LEVELING WITH THOSE INVOLVED WHEN THIS LINE IS DRAWN CAN BE THERAPEUTIC FOR BOTH THE PHYSICIAN AND THE PATIENT. THE GUILT OF COURSE STEMS FROM THE CONCEPT OF DEATH AS A PUNISHMENT. AFTER ALL, YOU ARE SENDING THIS SOUL TO MEET HIS FATE AND ARE THEREFORE RESPONSIBLE. THIS IS QUITE A BURDEN, AND WE ARE NOT SURPRISED THAT THIS PRODUCES FATIGUE. IT NEED NOT BE THAT WAY, BUT YOU YOURSELF MUST BEGIN TO LOOK UPON THE PHYSICAL LIFE AS MERELY A TRANSITORY THING AND NOT TO BE MOURNED. IN THE OLDER SOULS THIS BECOMES FAR EASIER, AS ALMOST ALL OF THEM WILL ACCEPT SOME CONCEPT OF PERPETUATION. WITH THE YOUNGER SOULS THIS MAY REQUIRE MORE SKILL, BUT STILL CAN BE SMOOTHLY HANDLED BY ONE WITH STRENGTH OF CONVICTIONS.

YES, WE DO SEE MUCH ARROGANCE IN THE MAN FULTON. THIS IS A FINAL LEVEL OLD SOUL “TRANSCENDENT”, AND NOT A MANIFESTATION OF A TRANSCENDENTAL SOUL. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.

Can it be seen in a patient’s eyes when they are going to die soon, or in their aura?

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, THERE IS ALSO A THERMAL CHANGE IN THE AURA THAT IS MEASURABLE AS IT CHANGES FROM ITS USUAL COLOR TO BLACK. BUT YES, MANY GOOD STUDENTS CAN SEE THIS IN THE EYES JUST AS CLEARLY AS THEY CAN SEE THE OVERLEAVES.
