In Neale Donald Walsch’s Home with God, a book that talks about death and dying and how understanding the gift of death could change the way we live our lives, God gave us 18 things to “re-member”.
First Remembrance – Dying is something you do for you.
Second Remembrance – You are the cause of your own death. This is always true, no matter where, or how, you die.
Third Remembrance – You cannot die against your will.
Fourth Remembrance – No path back home is better than any other path.
Fifth Remembrance – Death is never a tragedy. It is always a gift.
Sixth Remembrance – You and God are one. There is no separation between you.
Seventh Remembrance – Death does not exist.
Eight Remembrance – You cannot change Ultimate Reality, but you can change your experience of it.
Ninth Remembrance – It is the desire of All That Is to Know Itself in Its Own Experience. This is the reason for all of Life.
Tenth Remembrance – Life is eternal.
Eleventh Remembrance – The timing and the circumstances of death are always perfect.
Twelfth Remembrance – The death of every person always serves the agenda of every other person who is aware of it. That is why they are aware of it. Therefore, no death (and no life) is ever “wasted”. No one ever dies “in vain”.
Thirteenth Remembrance – Birth and death are the same thing.
Fourteenth Remembrance – You are continually in the act of creation, in life and in death.
Fifteenth Remembrance – There is no such thing as the end of evolution.
Sixteenth Remembrance – Death is reversible.
Seventeenth Remembrance – In death you will be greeted by all of your loved ones – those who have died before you and those who will die after you.
Eighteenth Remembrance – Free choice is the act of pure creation, the signature of God, and your gift, your glory, and your power forever and ever.
