Today's Wake-up visitor was Clark. I had no trouble relating to him.
C: I'm in the gray space. I want to be in the sunlight with my dogs. They miss me.
Me: Why don't you go to the TSP?
C: I know there are no dogs in Heaven. My teachers told me that. I don't know where my dogs are but I want to be with them.
Me: I'll get Ben.
B: Hello Clark. I'm Ben.
C: I want to be with my dogs. If they aren't in Heaven they are someplace else and I want to be with them. People say that dogs don't have souls but I know they do. If I'm alive after I died I know they are too.
B: No problem.
B: Dogs do have souls.
C: How do you know?
B: Can a dog love you?
C: Of course.
B: Isn't that what it means to have a soul?
C: Oh then I guess dogs do have souls.
B: Or to put a finer point on it, some souls do incarnate as animals. They all go to the TSP when they leave their bodies.
B: The Timeless Spaceless place where creation begins and all the possibilities happen at once.
C: Isn't that Heaven?
B: Heaven is there if you create it there.
C: Create Heaven?
B: If you believe Heaven is a place in the clouds with pearly gates and streets of gold and people wearing white robes and halos that's what you'll see-- at first. But if you want dogs there, with or without halos, that will happen. And if you decide you would rather be playing with your dogs in a big green meadow, that can happen.
C: But it wouldn't be real. It would just be my imagination, right?
B: It would be the realest real you have ever known--fluffy fur, slimey tongue, wet nose and the wisdom of a philosopher who needs no words to touch your soul.
C: That's Dogon! Is he there?
B: He's waiting for you. And so are all your other dogs. Ready to go meet them?
C: Yes! But I want to take some treats.
B: You can stop at the Treat Boutique on your way to the Meadow.
C: But I have no money.
B: Okay. I'm going to explain. You and the dogs and the treats and the money are all energy. It is the job of consciousness to mold energy into actions and objects and worlds. When you go to the TSP you will be able to see how your consciousness has been molding energy and creating everything you love and hate and are inspired by and terrified of. You will have a chance to learn to do what you have been doing and to learn how to do it better and more intentionally.
C: And what about my dogs?
B: They're way ahead of you.
