I planned to post other quotes today, but last night and this morning I had inner prompting to use quotes about death. I'm going to do two separate posts: this one with humor, the other about grief. Both with Abraham's infinite wisdom and love. @>----
And when you croak, no matter how resistant you've been to Who You Are, we like that word, too: croak. It's so disrespectful. And since there IS no death, we like to be as disrespectful of that ridiculous idea as we can.
So when you croak --it has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? [audience laughter] When you croak you reemerge immediately back into the awareness of Who You Really Are, and you leave behind any resistant patterns that you've picked up along this physical trail. So croaking is the true epitome of blending. You come back together with Who You Are.
But we think it would be ever so nice if you could blend before you croak. Pre-croaking blending. Yes. That's what we'll call this. Art of Allowing was nice for the last decade but what do you think about it: Pre-Croaking Blending? That should get the crowds out! [applause]

...this inevitable thing called death is not a bad thing. We know that you might think we're biased since we are considered dead. (Laughter.)
You are Source energy that had something in mind when you made the decision to come forth into this physical body. None of you said, "I will go forth and stay in this body for hundreds of years." Very often your intention was to come forth, make a big splash, have a lot of fun, and then make another decision. Physical beings have turned this amount of life into an issue. You cannot evaluate the quality of life by the quantity of life.
....So very often, people like your friend actually begin living with the death of someone important to them, because they must get it into perspective to even survive, you see.
....When you show yourself that you can return to joy under those conditions [grieving], there is never ever, ever, ever again anything for you to fear. And wouldn't you all love to be one who has gotten over that fear stuff? Don't you just love to know the well-being, the total well-being of who you are?

When you understand that you are eternal beings, in other words, you walk into this room, you all come willingly and yet you have not commited your life to being in this room. In a few hours, you're going to get up and you're going to walk out of here and everybody's going to say that's just fine. And yet when somebody makes their transition, which is no different than that -- they just withdraw their attention from one room and give their attention to another room -- you all act like it's the end of the world.
Jerry and Esther have a new cat that they kidnapped when they were in Louisiana - well, the cat really kidnapped them. It sort of appeared at their motor home and said, "I want to live with you," and the owner of the park said, "We want you to take this cat," and ultimately they did. And now this cat - Loveable Cat is her name, they call her L.C. - she lives at the office. And Jerry wanted her to have freedom, and so in the beautiful new office building the carpenters cut a door for L.C. to come in and out. And the building is very thick, and the doors are metal so they could not put the cat door in the door. So they put it in the building and built a chute, and so there's about this much distance from outside to inside. At first, she did not like the idea of the door. Jerry said it was like trying to put the toothpaste back in the tube. (Laughter.) And then he watched her, her first emergence,and it was a very interesting thing because here she's standing in the break room, a very beautiful room inside, and then she leaps up onto her shelf that has been build and she pokes herself through the tube and then out into the bright sunlight.
Well, death is sort of like that. In other words, it's not a bigger transition than that. It is something that is going from one perspective to another, but there is no sense of having left behind something. Instead, there is the exhilaration about what is on the other side. Now the thing that we're wanting you to understand is that once L.C. goes outside,she is equally free to come back in. So she's in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out, and that is the way it is from the nonphysical perspective. In other words, the conversation that you had was a very real conversation - nonphysical consciousness is here with you all the time. The question is why have those of you who are still remaining in the break room, why have you limited yourself only to that experience? And that really is what these workshops are about. We're wanting to help you consciously reconnect with that broader self that you know you are. And once you gain that awareness of the wholeness of who you are, then you're like the cat that's back and forth and back and forth and back and forth and back and forth, not feeling any big deal about it, having a glorious experience no matter where your consciousness is focused, you
You die more in your hatred than you ever could in your death. In death there is life, you see. It is in hatred and in fear that there is the pinching off of life.
So we have to say to you that the only place that any of you could ever experience anything death-like, is in your physical body, as you dis-allow the good feeling you - that is you.

Guest: I died a couple of years ago… (Describes circumstances of near death experience.) Now I don’t know how to feel as happy here as I felt there.
Abraham: …Now you know the goal. You know how happy you are, and you know how happy you want to be. And that’s what you have come to express.
Guest: But the thing is that here is so not… allowing, or something…
Abraham: We know it seems that way. But it’s only the perceptions you’ve picked up. In other words, in that re-emergence into non-physical you left behind all of your limiting perceptions. And so, now your work is about one by one releasing the limiting perceptions. And it is our promise that you can be as happy here as you were there. And now you have this fabulous experience of knowing what you are reaching for. And think about it in light of what we have been talking about here today. It is not about achieving something, it is not about going somewhere, it is not about being with someone. It’s a state of being, isn’t it? It’s the feeling. It’s the feeling!
Can you feel how, as we’ve been moving through emotions here today, can you feel how what you are wanting to do is to move from where ever you are, which is feeling pretty darned good, to that fabulous goal that you now have which is feeling really,
really, really good?
… We want to show you how to step here and step here and step here and step here, and then you say, “Hey, this is as good as being dead!!!” [laughter]
