The Death Dance of Endless Shadows

Endless Shadows 5


As I observe this…death dance…of endless shadows…
for death’s sudden blow…souls endlessly waiting …
death’s gaping yawn hole …moths dance, their lights flickering…
endlessly flickering…flashing out, they all go…


Endless Shadows 6


Flashing out…instantly give they birth to new shadows…
in birth…they go dancing…endlessly shading…
endlessly shading the light substance, bickering…
bickering shadows…into the long night…they flow…


Endless Shadows 2


They flow into..long night of death… there is no waiting…
for death into life…new birth’s vibrating, quaking…
awakening “eye”…unfamiliar “I”…flickering…
for a moment…shaking…in survival…glow…


Endless Shadows 10


As I observe this…death dance…of endless shadows…
for death’s sudden blow…souls endlessly waiting …
death’s gaping yawn hole …moths dance, their lights flickering…
endlessly flickering…flashing out, they all go…


Endless Shadows 7


Fact of survival…emerged from death’s dancing shadows…
dancing shadows…flutter…light never fading…
light everlasting…son et lumière…angels all sing…
Life Everlasting…before Creator Son…know…


Life of Endless Shadows 9


Know His Love…compassion…endless…His judgment slow…
judgment, by mercy, tempered…understanding…
understanding the dust from which shadow comes dancing…
dancing into life…through death’s gaping yawn hole …

2. Death and Translation  

(623.1) 55:2.1 Natural, physical death is not a mortal inevitability. The majority of advanced evolutionary beings, citizens on worlds existing in the final era of light and life, do not die; they are translated directly from the life in the flesh to the morontia existence. 

(623.2) 55:2.2 This experience of translation from the material life to the morontia state — fusion of the immortal soul with the indwelling Adjuster — increases in frequency commensurate with the evolutionary progress of the planet. At first only a few mortals in each age attain translation levels of spiritual progress, but with the onset of the successive ages of the Teacher Sons, more and more Adjuster fusions occur before the termination of the lengthening lives of these progressing mortals; and by the time of the terminal mission of the Teacher Sons, approximately one quarter of these superb mortals are exempt from natural death. 

(623.3) 55:2.3 Farther along in the era of light and life the midway creatures or their associates sense the approaching status of probable soul-Adjuster union and signify this to the destiny guardians, who in turn communicate these matters to the finaliter group under whose jurisdiction this mortal may be functioning; then there is issued the summons of the Planetary Sovereign for such a mortal to resign all planetary duties, bid farewell to the world of his origin, and repair to the inner temple of the Planetary Sovereign, there to await morontia transit, the translation flash, from the material domain of evolution to the morontia level of prespirit progression. 

(623.4) 55:2.4 When the family, friends, and working group of such a fusion candidate have forgathered in the morontia temple, they are distributed around the central stage whereon the fusion candidates are resting, meantime freely conversing with their assembled friends. A circle of intervening celestial personalities is arranged to protect the material mortals from the action of the energies manifest at the instant of the “life flash” which delivers the ascension candidate from the bonds of material flesh, thereby doing for such an evolutionary mortal everything that natural death does for those who are thereby delivered from the flesh.  

–The Urantia Book, Paper 55 – The Spheres of Light and Life  

(557.9) 48:7.25 23. Death added nothing to the intellectual possession or to the spiritual endowment, but it did add to the experiential status the consciousness of survival.  

–The Urantia Book, Paper 48 – The Morontia Life
