My Immortal Story

by Kathy Dobson on September 29, 2009

MeOk, now that we’ve established that an open mind is imperative to any kind of inner growth, with this post, I’d like to take the time to explain a bit of my background and how I came to KNOW Immortality.

For me, the beginning starts in childhood. I cannot ever remember wanting to know anything as much as I wanted to know about God. I only mention this fact so that you can see that even as a child I was enamored with God.  I was born into this life knowing that my life would somehow center around God…even as a child I knew this although I did not yet know the path it would take.

Fast forward to the year 1977. I had known Suzen for a couple of years and it wasn’t long before Suzen and I discovered that we shared the same thirst to “know” God. Suzen said to me one day “Kathy, pray for Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding.” And, so I did. Soon after, I found myself in my bedroom  screaming at God…”You want me to glorify you…and I don’t even know you….how do I glorify something I don’t know?”

I got my answer! Suzen and I were in the basement reading in the bible one night (I was not that familiar with the bible having spent very little time reading it to that point) when suddenly I was compelled (I don’t know how else to put it) to grab the book away from Suzen and turn back to a certain page (it was as though the pages themselves were turning as I had no inclination as to why I was turning those pages…I had nothing in mind that I was turning to.) Without speaking any words to one another Suzen and I found ourselves reading the same passage on the page….(I have never shared this passage with anyone because it was so special to me…but if you keep reading I reveal it today)….Soon Suzen bolted up off the couch and ran upstairs.  I was seconds behind her. The words we had just read literally “lightening bolted off the page” and into our hearts…shifting our consciousness in a dramatic way. We both knew it had happened, but I don’t quite know how to  put it into words except to say that I felt it and so did Suzen. At the top of the stairs we just looked at one another and said “did you feel that?” We were both shook up but didn’t know the depth of what had happened yet.

The next day we headed off to a metaphysical bookstore and asked to be guided by the Holy Spirit.  We were both rewarded with a special book “Wisdom of the Ages” and our lives have never been the same since.

I had awakened to my own Immortality as Suzen had.  And, given the fact that it was over 30 years ago…no Internet to find people to share it with…no books to gather from general bookstores (they are barely touching on the subject of metaphysics now…you can imagine back then!)…we had to order books from DeVorss an Co. I know that God had Suzen and I share that experience and start our journey together just as he sent the apostles out together in twos….to give each other strength against an unbelieving world.  After all, what we were shown…what we believed was opposite of everything that was being taught!

At least we had each other…and, for that my heart is full.  No matter what the world was saying I knew that Suzen knew…and that gave me strength at times.  But I will say this…in all the years, through everything I’ve been through in life, I have never once….NEVER ONCE doubted what was shown to me.  You see, it lives in my heart.  It was something I woke to within me. It is a ‘knowing’ and you cannot defend a ‘knowing’ for it lives within….it simply is.

Soon I found myself at Suzen’s house in Florida and she handed me the book “Ye Are Gods” by Annalee Skarin.  She said, “Kathy, you have to read this.” So, that night I gathered my new book and headed up to the guest room to read. Once again, the hand of God was in control and the book fell open to the chapter titled “And There Shall Be No More Death!” It was the first time I saw in print what I knew in my heart and what Jesus so generously came to show us…that death has no power over us.

And so, the journey began. Now, over 30 years later I finally have a platform to share what lives so joyously in my heart.

It is time to share that magical passage…for anyone who might be led to it….
Here is that passage from Matthew Chapter 13 The Parable of The Seed….

chapter 13/13….(His answer to the disciples as to why he speaks in parables to the masses)…

“I use parables when I speak to them because they look
but they do not see, they listen but they do not hear or understand,
look intently as you will, you shall not see.
Sluggish indeed is this people’s heart
They have scarely heard with their ears,
they have firmly closed their eyes;
otherwise they might see with their eyes,
and hear with their ears,
and understand with their hearts,
and turn back to me,
and I should heal them.’

But blest are your  eyes because they see and blest are your ears
because they hear.  I assure you, many a prophet and many a saint
longed to see what you see but did not see it, to hear what you
hear but did not hear it.”

So the journey  continues….infinitely, eternally.  For God always was, is and will be forever more.  And, you are God and God is you and we are ONE.

Thanks for allowing me to share my story.

Stay tuned because Suzen will be posting the next installment….I haven’t seen it yet but I am excited ;)

Infinitely Yours in JOY….

Kathy

Thank you so much Kathy for sharing your awakening to this truth.
This desire of physical immortality and the knowing of oneness is deep in the hearts of all humanity awaiting their time of awakening. The energy that you and Suzen are putting forth will assist in that process – it will energise and encourage. As you say , once the KNOWING has been energized, it is eternally present.
infinite blessings Janni

Hi Janni,
That’s exactly it Janni! “Once the KNOWING has been energized, it is eternally present.” Beautiful!

Hi there Kathy – thanks for this story. For me the “awakening” was two-pronged, I think – the first part was understanding that we create our own reality with our being, and the second, which came a few weeks later, was the physical immortality understanding. Like you, I have never once doubted these understandings. Love your “You see, it lives in my heart. It was something I woke to within me. It is a ‘knowing’ and you cannot defend a ‘knowing’ for it lives within….it simply is.”

I’m not familiar with ‘Wisdom of the Ages’ – I’ll have to check it out. And looking forward to hearing from Suzen!

Cheers Kathy – Robin

Hi Robin,
I was hoping you would stop by ;) After all, you were the catalyst for my finally getting this blog up!
For those of us “who know” there is just simply no turning back. A knowing does not go away, for it lives within.
I hope you come back often!
Blessings,
Kathy

Hey Kathy,

Great piece of writing once again. I too had my awaking through Anna Lee Skarin’s Ye Are Gods as you remember. Going to your blog even reminds me once again that we really are immortal. Just wonderful and inspiring to read.

Love and light…Barb

Hi Barb,
Welcome! It warmed my heart to see you on board. You are an important part of this blog and most likely will be posting on occasion!

Wow, that is truly inspirational and amazing! Thank you for opening up here, and allowing the energy of your awakening to filter through the blogosphere, touching countless lives.

I remember when I first started awakening… It wasn’t as lightning bolt as the experience you described, but once my eyes opened a little, it’s been my pledge ever since to keep opening them more and more until one day when I finally see all of this life clearly.

Namaste!

Hi Megan,
Touching your lives…touching me. The Butterfly effect. We are ONE.
We each experience our own level of awakening that’s all tied to what we needed to awaken.
Once we see all of this life clearly I often wonder what challenge will be before us ;)
Namaste my friend…please come back.
Kathy

Interesting blog n recount of the why immortality is in your heart.
I hopped from Robins, think I saw a comment from you on DreambuildersAu earlier.
This world certainly has unexpained energies n unseen beings guiding us along our quest. I always pray for knowledge, as did Solomon, n have felt directed to certain prayers in used book sales which have helped me. Glad to have found your insights.
I look forward to reading future posts

Hi “SnaggleTooth”…:)
Welcome aboard…please stop by often. We always welcome another voice here. Please excuse the rough look of the blog right now…it will continutally improve…and that’s promise to everyone here!
Blessings,

You’re reading and open and that’s the only requirement. When it’s time for it to be your ‘Truth’…you will KNOW. :)
I hope you come back often.

Walter October 5, 2009 at 1:07 am

I say AMEN to this post. I do believe deep in my heart that we are one with God. The answers we have been searching for in life is within us always and we could not see it because our understanding is limited (well, at least in this physical form). :-)

Hi Walter,
We as humans have been searching without for answers for forever…the time has come when we have exhausted our outside searches and we’re turning within. That’s where the “key” was hidden to begin with ;)
I hope you come back often.
Blessings,
Kathy

Kathy, your awakening is mine, and belongs to us all since we are indeed one. Your words recalled a memory from almost 40 years ago: “I was sitting on the ground leaning against a tree, being simply quiet in both mind and body. It was a cold winter day but the sun was out strong and the sky was blue and there was no snow on the ground. A realization hit me and entered every pore of my being, such that I didn‘t even want to breathe, wanting to capture the feeling forever: in a single moment I suddenly knew — not metaphorically, but absolutely, that I and all that I could see around me were part of one great reality; that any evidence of physical separation was merely illusion. I knew that I and the tree were one, there was no such thing as separation and there was nothing not alive. This was a startling realization, one I hadn‘t looked for; it just came, and as quickly faded away. I knew then that time and space are illusions. From then on I deeply craved an awareness of my connection to nature.” (I’d written this in a journal long ago)

Apparently nature is where I feel my union best; although reading your thoughts, and the thoughts of so many others, brings a similar sense of union. Kathy, I am SO glad you’re here!

Hi Jeanne,
It’s wonderful to see you here again and that was a lovely story you just told. Your words are poetic truth…and, I don’t think these things ever happen when we’re looking for them. That was a gift…and what a beautiful one it was! God is, was and will be forever more.
It warms my heart and soul to see all you kindred spirits showing up here. For those that resonate with these words, it is time…time for us to gather together in strength.
Namaste my friend,
Kathy

Wow that is such an amazing story.

You know I find it so peculiar that having grown up with the Bible and with people around me who took it very seriously – so many are not seeing and not hearing the words. It is exactly as the passage says.

I mean it says it right there, but we transform me into some other meaning for we don’t want to or perhaps choose not to believe that not only are we one with each other, but we are one with God.

This was just beautiful!!! Thank you.

Evita…What a beautiful name you have! And yes, I believe Truth is simple and right before our eyes and ears but unless we have opened ourselves to receive it, we simply do not have the faculties to understand…yet…;)
Love to you…Kathy

Suzen October 7, 2009 at 11:30 am

That moment, stored in our Akashic Records, magnifies my spirit, spreads the goose bumps, stands the hair on my arms, and beats warmth from my heart like it is happening now, and it is, as we are in a
parallel universe.

I thank our Creator for the exquisite gift of my soul/spirit sister Kathy! She affirms and mirrors Spirit’s grace, love, beauty and light.
A heartful gratitude for this new community of endless possibilities!

Thank you Suzen for those beautiful words!
I am humbled by everyone who has landed here and commented.
I don’t know if anyone else feels it, but I sense a very strong community forming.
Much love,
Kathy

Hi Kathy – What a wonderful story. Thank you for sharing. I had almost given up on God for a long time.

Then going back through some of the not so great things that happened to me, I realised he made them happen for a reason – I was going in the wrong direction.

I’m looking forward to reading the next installment.

Hi Cath,
Thanks for stopping by the blog and commenting. I am glad that my story touched you…that’s precisely why I wrote it…for those that might be led to reading it.
Please come back often Cath to share in our community here.
Namaste my new friend…Kathy

Hi Kathy,

I’ve just finished watching “Alice In Wonderland” by Burton, and ran to the web to check insights and spiritual meaning, as I well recognize the symbolism and the depth of the messages in this fabulous classic tale by an enlightened Louise Carol.

I read the post written by Suzan and liked what I’ve seen. I did also browse your blog including this wonderful and rare awakening story – I just feel that you girls know exactly what you are talking about. That this is real to you as much as it is for me. And that I found maybe a new community into I can blend.
Meanwhile I’ve ordered the book you’ve suggested “Wisdom of the Ages” ( by George A. Fuller isn’t it?) and read the introduction and decided to write you and thank you for what you are sharing – it is an extremely interesting and joyful experience reading you. Please do not stop.

Hi Golan,
Although I am late in replying I just wanted to tell you that you made my day and gave me the incentive to want to continue on.
Thank you for that…you are very special to me. Please come back I promise this blog is going to take off again.
It is time…
“Blessings this Christmas to you and yours” and may you enjoy the most prosperous year of your life in 2011…
Kathy
