Live Long and Prosper

One of the great icons of our world has moved to the Flipside this week.  Actor Leonard Nimoy made his last transporter voyage, has dissolved into the ether, and rejoined his beloved friends and family who've been keeping an eye on him for years.

I imagine he may even run into Gene Roddenberry, who created this iconic character, that at first harangued Nimoy, and later made him come to accept that the role was indeed, bigger than him.
Actress Luana Anders didn't do a Star Trek, but her pal Sally Kellerman did
An amazing account of his journey with this role was posted online the other day.  It's the story of how after the show wrapped, he was not part of any of the profit participation, and when his agent called to ask him to be in the film version, he'd said "If you call me again about being in a Star Trek movie, you're fired."

Pretty harsh words, but prophetic as well.

He tells the story of how the studio chief came to see him and tried his best to talk him into the film, or at least hear out what his complaints were, and at the end of the day a check arrived with profit participation, and he did join the cast.

But then, later, he was thinking of directing one of the films, and the studio thought that was a bad idea, and he thought it was a good one.  He bargained with them - "You need Spock, and I need to direct this movie."  He did direct it, it was so successful they had him direct the next film, and then he went on to direct other films, equally fun and enjoyable ("Three Men and a Baby" etc).

So... from a Flipside perspective, was Nimoy destined to be Spock?  His first autobiography was "I Am Not Spock" and yet his second one was "I Am Spock." 

As noted below Ed Sheeran, upon accepted his award at the Brit Awards, said in effect, "When I was a kid, I dreamt of this moment, and now it's happened."

How often have we heard that phrase?  Quite a bit.  And does anyone stop to examine it?

What does it mean?  "I dreamed something would happen" and it did.  Those who adhere to the idea that the things you wish for come to you, and that would appear to make sense on a surface level - i.e., he spent his whole life thinking about how to achieve his goal and he did... but that's not entirely what's being said here.

"I dreamed it.  And then it happened."  In the world of mediums, psychics, they will adhere to the idea that somehow he presaged what would happen.  But then, if that's the case, imagine all of the work involved to make that dream come true.

Stuart Sharp (mentioned in "It's a Wonderful Afterlife") was a cook at a pub in England, and when his son died, the night before the funeral he had a profound dream about music.  And one of the characters in the dream said "We will help you remember this" or words to that effect, and showed him that he would eventually be conducting the very same music he was hearing in front of an orchestra, that he would write the music and it would be performed live.

Never mind that he was a cook, and had little or no experience writing music.  But he changed his life, became a musician, someone heard him playing the song ON THE GUITAR and asked about it, and he told them.  And within a few years, he actually conducted the symphony he'd written, his memory of that etheric, angelic symphony with the London Philharmonic.

I'm not making this up.  

The same story can be heard often and with detail from other people; Pete Townsend of The Who had music appear in his ear which inspired him to become a musician.  There are many famous composers who claimed they "heard the music" before they composed it.  There are also people who walk and talk and think, including Einstein who used to spend time walking and talking with a colleague, and credits that time with the theory of relativity.

Is it there in the ether?  Or is it there in our destiny?  Or what's happening?

We also have people who adhere to the idea that outside of this realm, i.e, in the Flipside, that there's no time.  That when we visualize what's going to happen in our lifetime, it may be based on an accurate reading of the tea leaves of our lives.  There are numerous accounts (in Near Death Experiences, and between life sessions, as reported in "Flipside" and "It's A Wonderful Afterlife") of people visiting "libraries" in the afterlife. 

I've noted that there are no two accounts that are the same of these "akashic record" libraries.  I use the common term Akashic record, but there aren't any during these sessions that call them that, unless of course they're familiar with the term.  They're just called "libary" where all the records of people's lives reside, and are accessible to examine.

But I've also had in depth discussions with people who claim to be speaking on behalf of the librarian, or guides that are in the library, where they explain that these records are "not set in stone" but that they're "energetic records" of "likely outcomes" or memories of previous lifetimes.  And the reason to visit this place is the same reason we visit any library - to open the books of knowledge and see what we can learn from them.

But back to Mr. Live Long and Prosper.

I'd like to nominate this Gene Roddenberry phrase to replace R.I.P.   "Rest in Peace" comes from the Latin, or Roman term, which means "resting" and in some kind of peaceful way, perhaps to avoid the wrath or anger of those who might not be so happy about being sent to the Flipside.  In some ways it's a plea, or a devout wish that a troubled person can actual "rest peacefully." "Requiēscat in Pāce"

What the research shows (and that's including accounts from Dr. Newton, Dr. Greyson, Dr. Schwartz, Dr. Beauregard, Dr. Wambach and other scientists, psychologists and first person accounts) is that we don't die when our bodies cease functioning.  Rather we find in these accounts that we move into a realm that is "more lifelike" where we experience "unconditional love" and resolution of a number of things.  It may not happen instantly - with violins and harps - it may take some time before we get to a place of peacefullness, but eventually we all get there.

Leonard Nimoy's last message on Twitter included 'LLAP' .. 

  Leonard Nimoy         @TheRealNimoy

"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP"

 
 
So when Leonard Nimoy checked out this past week, he indeed go to a place, a garden, where indeed, he will LIVE LONG AND PROSPER.  
(Oddly enough, a bit like the "Genesis" aspect of the "Star Trek" films)

Because its there that we prosper by reconnecting with our loved ones, we prosper by studying and examining the lessons learned during our lifetime, the love that we've given, the love that we've created, the love we've made, and the love we've left behind.  We continue to LIVE LONG because that is the nature of what spirits do - continuing on their path and journey through each lifetime, but also through learning and teaching while over on the other side.  

It's a full and rich experience,  according to the thousands of cases - and the journey in the Afterlife is an experience that ennobles the human spirit, underlines the path and journey we've all taken and indeed is one that's powerful, resonant, and worth talking about.

Live Long and Prosper.
