    Summerland.

    Post  SpiritVoices on Sun Dec 23, 2012 5:48 pm

    I found this on the internet and found it rather interesting.

    So many questions about where we go after after physical death.

    A description of Summerland given by Ramadahn.


    ' The Truths of The Spirit World
    Ramadahn


    The Summerland
    In the spirit and power of Infinite Love we enter these conditions and bring to those still in the mortal body a feeling of the softness, the radiance and beauty of Infinite Love as it streams out from the Eternal Heart, investing each one in healing, in radiance and heavenly joy. Each one here has received wounds within the heart from the harsh conditions of earthly life. Some have been deeply wounded in their spirit because they wander to and fro and lose the sense of infinite peace which comes when they know they are in a unity with Thee; and some have become dragged down into the conditions of fear and frustration which belong to the earthly realm.

    Each of them needs the peace of Thy healing and the radiance of Thy love, and they need the enfoldment of Thy Spirit. We would encircle them all in the spirit of love and radiance of healing that for a while they may be loosened from the sorrows of earth and brought into a harmony with the peace and love of spirit - and through this come back to the realisation that they belong to Thee even as Thou dost belong to them. In this state of unity and belonging all things are well, for this is indeed Thy law and the symbol of Thy love.

    In the power of spirit we would sign and seal the conditions of this room by placing here the symbol of the cross which is the sign of the human soul, encircled by the ever-flowing, ever-growing and ever-shining circle of Eternal Life, Eternal Love, and Eternal Light.

    Beloved brothers and sisters, I come in these somewhat disturbed and harsh conditions of your mortal realm from planes wherein all is peace, all is harmony and beautiful colour, for this is the law and light which pervades the Summerland of Joy. I would say that even as the astral realm is a reflection of the discordant conditions of the earthly life, so the harmonious conditions of the earthly life are a reflection of the conditions in the true spiritual plane, which is sometimes called the Summerland, sometimes called Heavenland, and sometimes named the Life Elysian.

    In your earthly time of experience when you are conscious of calmness and feel aware of the great beauty surrounding you, when there is an inner comprehension of your unity with the great Giver of all Life, this is a dim reflection of the state which you will one day experience when you pass from the confines of your mortal body into the freedom and light of the Summerland of Joy. Within this realm there is harmony – not a cessation of sound or movement, but a harmonisation between all the component parts, between all the forms of existence which are to be found within this beautiful place. Because the law relating to this life is a law of construction and harmony there is no death, no discord and no decay; instead there is a perfect manifestation of the laws of love and life, bringing into fruition and into being the varying changes and seasons which are to be found.

    In this Summerland there is no season of winter, neither is there a season of summer; but there is a season in which life-waves of varying activity come to their fullness and die silently and quietly away. We could bring this to your understanding by saying that for a season there is a golden life-wave which brings into manifestation a golden radiance in all things which are. As this dies away, it is replaced by the green life-wave, and for a while there is a manifestation of greenness within all things.

    There are also life-waves of other colours: varying shades and colours which you know upon the earth come into their manifestation and die silently away; but when they come into the fullness of their power, they bring into being blossoms which belong to this particular colour strata. The colour wave touches all things, either with a golden radiance or a green or pink radiance and all is transformed, changed and beautified. Then that life wave dies away as another comes into its transforming activity and this too brings a changing season into manifestation, until that also has completed its course.

    I would say that the best way in which you may understand this would be to visualise that you are standing in some great valley filled with peace, with gentle waters flowing through. See there a mighty rainbow, or a lamp with rainbow colours which turns very slowly and as it turns it floods the valley and touches the grassy hillsides and transforms the calmness of the water with the differing shades which are reflected as it slowly, very slowly turns within its orbit. If you visualise this, you will have some faint and dim idea of the beauty of the changing seasons to be found within the Summerland of Joy.

    Because there is no season of cold and no season of heat, we do not have any need for dwelling places which are enclosed and roofed; therefore we erect for our use dwelling places which are similar to ancient temples with pillars though which foliage may be trained or curtains can be hung to create privacy if this is desired by those who use these dwelling places. The habit and need to withdraw is found just as much amongst those who live within the Summerland as it is found amongst those who live upon the earthly plane. These temples may be roofed, or left open that the light from another and higher realm may stream into them and bring a concentrated blessing to those who enter into the quietness of communion within these enclosed places. In such dwelling places are to be found family groups, groups who have loved each other very greatly and continue in love and unity here within the Summerland.

    Or they may desire more to enter into the mighty temples. These temples are pillared and beautiful in their structure because they are reflections of the thought of those who desire to visualise and create dwellings and temples which are noble and beautiful in their shape. The temples are designed so that spirits may gather into congregations within them, and upon the altar places there is set – not symbols of religion as you know them on earth – but vessels of transparent light such as you may call mirrors, which capture and reflect the concentrated light as it falls from higher planes. Through these pure mirrored surfaces the light may shine to bless and illumine those who come into these temples to commune, worship and uplift their thoughts in the desire that they may rise higher from this beautiful plane and gain experience in other realms of beauty, drawing forever nearer to the pure great Light. This is beyond the comprehension of man in his present state but can be seen by him when he is within the spiritual state, dwelling within the purity of the Summerland of perfect joy and perfect peace.

    Within this realm there is no age and there is, in reality, no youth. There is maturity of soul for those who enter into this realm, those who carry their burden of the mature experiences they garnered during many years of earthly understanding. This maturity shines within them; but the body they use is free from age and simply stands in the beauty of its maturity. Those who come in bodies which are as yet untouched by the wide experiences of earthly life, those who grow to their maturity from childhood or infancy within the spirit realm, these too mature slowly into the adult form but they retain within the inner spirit that radiance, purity and joy which belongs to them by right of the joy of their childhood. Therefore I say to you, There can be no sorrow and no sighing for all is harmony and understanding, all takes place in a happy interchange of joyous companionship and loving thought.

    I would say, beloved ones, as I try to lay before your consciousness the vision of this beautiful place, Can you not think how good it would be to order your life in such a fashion in the few seasons of your mortal years that when you come to the end of your earthly journey you pass swiftly into this beautiful place? Is it not worth your while to order your lives so that you are free from greed and possessiveness, free from hatefulness? Is it not worth planning your lives so that your hearts are filled with love and compassion for the weakness of your brethren, forgiving them for they know not what they do? Is it not good for you to live in such a fashion that you regard but lightly the possessions of the earth? When you so live, then you rise swiftly and easily from the body into the places of joy and of spirit.

    If you come to the closing of your earth life and your consciousness is still held by the things of earth, filled with a bitterness towards your brothers and sisters because of their actions or because of the things you feel you should have and do not - then this is the burden and weight which will hold you down. Instead of drawing you into the Summerland, it will draw you into the near earth world wherein is greyness and discord and often fear.

    Day by day, think not to yourself that what happens to you is of importance: think not so. Grieve not over the actions which other people extend to you, but think unto yourself: “The wisdom of spirit lies not in what others do but in how I shall react to what others may do.” Order your life so that your reaction is always one of forgiveness, politeness, gentleness, peacefulness, lovingness. When your reactions are so throughout all the many years of your earthly experiences, then the spirit becomes lightened and brightened. At the end of the journey the spirit is ready to be released from the body and rise into the realm of light; there to enjoy in all happiness the harmony, the peace and the beauty which I strive so inadequately to clothe in the words of earth that you may gain some faint understanding of the beauty which you may see.'

    No fear
    It's very difficult to try and imagine being without fear, pain, feeling too hot or too cold, discomfort, tiredness and all of those other physical feelings we have in the flesh.
