Podcast Episode 11: Consciousness and The Grace to be Found in Dying with Bud Jahn

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast Logo

This podcast series focuses on the intersection of Consciousness and Self. This is our “Journey into Enlightenment.” At the core of human reality is Consciousness. Humans are self-defining creatures. We develop rule sets and stories that generate our experiences of reality. Consciousness is the state of awareness in each of us where our self-defined realities are only one of the many options in potential that could be expressed.

Each episode you will join Janet and her friends to gather in this core in Heart Centered Awareness. You will feel this state where time and space are malleable, potential is active and change in our day to day experiences can be felt in the moment. You will witness this sharing in the expansive variety of expressions of Consciousness, and as form and language in our physical and non-physical worlds. Experience new definitions in Self and join in the collective community we call Consciousness.

Essence: Episode NotesHeart with a tree of life inside

Death is a vital element in the flow of Life. It can come to a concept, ideal, belief or people we know or don’t know. Together my friend Bud Jahn, a long-time hospice and respite volunteer, will look to explore the beauty of the Spirit in transition. Recognize the calamity of emotions and feelings from all those involved. And, what happens when resistance gives way, transcending into the delight of sharing in the humanity and Spirit present, the Wonder of Life.

Ageless: Consciousness CookiesCookies – Food for thought

“There is a source flowing so powerfully at that time. And in the releasing of physical awarenesses. And therefore in the releasing of activations of resistance, There is the flowing of pure positive energy. And whether you know it or not you are standing in that Stream.“ Abraham through Esther Hicks
“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transition that's troublesome.“ Isaac Asimov
“It doesn't make a damned bit of difference who wins the war to someone who's dead.“ Joseph Heller, Catch 22

Bud looks to Rumi for clarity.

“This place is a dream.
Only a sleeper considers it real.
Then death comes like dawn,
and you wake up laughing
at what you thought was your grief.“ Rumi
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.“ Rumi
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy. When actions come from another section, the feeling disappears.“ Rumi

Blog: Death is only an Illusion of FinalityQuan Yin

Wholeness is appreciating that Death will happen at some time to us physically, and that is as it should be. We set the length and conditions of life by our biases and our physical choices. It means that we understand that Death is essential and a vital element to living in the flow of what we experience in the totality of Being...
