#Omens&Symbols . . .Cup of Life and Death

“Tibetans have a custom of turning over their cup before going to sleep,
signifying not just the end of the day, but the end of one’s life.
In the morning, we first think:

I am alive, I can see, I can hear, I can feel.

Then we turn the cup right side up:

My new life begins, and I am ready to receive.

In the morning, the mind is very fresh, and just one moment
of appreciation for being alive can orient our whole day,
and remind us of the continual cycle of living and dying.”

Annie Kagan on the Light, Universal Intelligence and Afterlife!

“The same intelligence that grows trees from seeds,
that lets birds fly,
that waves the ocean
and gives birth to new stars – that same Intelligence

also breathes your breath, beats your heart,

and heals your wounds.”

“Being in an earthly body and looking through physical eyes limits the way you perceive the light. Your eyes can’t see the light directly, only the things it shines upon, so the light remains invisible, just like the soul does. That causes a good deal of suffering down there on your planet because it’s hard to believe in what you can’t see. The light here makes visible what is invisible on earth: the divine nature of all things.”
― Annie Kagan, The Afterlife of Billy Fingers: How My Bad-Boy Brother Proved to Me There’s Life After Death
