Looking at this photo reminded me of something. If you stand looking out to sea it could be that at some stage you will see a ship sailing off into the distance. “There she goes”. As the ship continues its journey it appears to get smaller and smaller until it eventually disappears over the horizon. Now imagine that on a far distant shore there stands someone just like yourself, looking out to sea. All of a sudden a ship appears on the horizon, ”here she comes”, and seems to be getting bigger and bigger as it nears the shore.
The ship getting smaller and then bigger again is, of course, an illusion. At no time during the course of the journey did the size of the ship change. It may be worth me mentioning to you that what I have just described to you is the cycle of birth and death. We use our vehilcle, or ship (physical body) to sail from one shore to the other across the ocean of life. As we leave one dimension with our loved ones seeing us off, ”there he goes”, seemingly diminishing in size, we enter and grow into another, with loved ones welcoming us, ”here he comes”.
At no time during the course of the journey did ”who we really are” grow or diminish in size ; we were always Divine Spirit in all its infinite glory.
