The End of Life

tombstones

John Cali

Last weekend around the dinner table, I was talking to some of my family about death. Not a subject most people want to sit around casually discussing at dinner. But death comes to us all, and we all think about it, at least now and then. Not necessarily in a somber, macabre way, but in simply acknowledging death is part of life.

Many years ago, I read the book Final Exit. As the book’s subtitle says, it’s about “the practicalities of self-deliverance and assisted suicide for the dying.” It’s a great book, and I’d recommend to anyone looking for alternatives to the standard, often horrific methods offered by traditional medicine.

Here are some sobering facts from Deepak Chopra, MD:

  • 90% of all medical expenses are end-of-life expenses where we prolong suffering instead of alleviating suffering.
  • Nobody benefits from the vast majority of heroic (medical) procedures that are done at the end of life.
  • End-of-life care should be about compassion, kindness, comfort, and peace.

My spirit guides have often talked about death. Here are a few of their thoughts:

  • Ultimately, you are the only one who brings death to yourself. No one else has that power over you. But you may well choose to die at the hand of another, or from some dis-ease. Or you can die peacefully in your bed, in a state of perfect health. You all have the ability to do that.
  • Every death is a suicide. But not in the way you normally use the word “suicide,” where someone deliberately kills his/her physical body, for whatever reason.
  • You often say, when people are suffering from a physical dis-ease, and are in great pain, their death is a “blessing.” It certainly is that. But so too is every other death, even those you consider tragic or untimely. You all die in the perfect way and perfect time, and by your own choice.
  • Dying is the easiest thing you will ever do. That is the truest statement you will ever hear. After all, you’ve had lots of practice — you’ve died hundreds, thousands of times before. When your physical life becomes anything less than joyful, when you are wracked with pain, physical or emotional, death can be a healing.
  • Ideally, you will get to the point in your physical life where you are satisfied, where there’s nothing left you want to do. You’ve done it all and now it’s time to move on to your next adventure. Every death is a suicide because you die when and how you choose.

In the early 1980s John took a spiritual development course, and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.

Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
