“At the time that I leave this earthly existence, I hope that my spirit moving to a new experience, will be celebrated—not mourned. Mourning the loss of someone’s physical presence is natural. It is a process that we all need to go through. But, the idea that their essence, their spirit, their soul, their real being, moving to another experience and way of being is truly exciting and should be celebrated. Yes; I will be glad to know that some people will miss my physical presence, but I would also like to know that they believe I have moved on to a better life.”
“Freedom, love and peace for everyone around the world and universe”
