Death of a Friend
by Chief Joseph and John Cali
Last week an old and dear friend
from my childhood died.
I realize that may sound cold and callous to some folks,
perhaps even to some of you reading this. But I actually did
celebrate after my sister told me of my friend’s death.
To explain, let me go back to days long past.
I’ve known Joe most of my life, over 50 years now.
Though he was much older than me, when I became an adult we grew
very close. We were like brothers. I have many warm and happy
memories of our days together, including some pretty wild times.
We knew how to have fun!
We never completely lost touch with each other, but we
did drift apart after his wife died about 15 years ago. I
contacted him a few times, but he never responded. I never knew
I would hear news about him now and then from family and
friends. He seemed to be drifting into a deep sadness and was
alienated from some of his own family. He became seriously ill a
couple years ago. But he lingered on in what sounded like a
deepening state of depression.
Then he had a massive stroke a couple weeks ago and died
a few days later. I knew he’d been unhappy for many years, and
life no longer held any allure for him.
So I celebrated because his death was truly a healing
for him. I knew my dear old friend was happy again.
Here’s Chief Joseph.
Death is not what it seems to most humans. Nothing new
there — you’ve probably heard us say that before.
Death is an event we in these dimensions celebrate in the
same way you in your physical dimensions celebrate birth. To us,
birth and death are not opposites, but only different places on
the spectrum of eternal life.
Somehow, somewhere along the trail, if you will, humans got it all
mixed up. You forgot what life was all about.
So when you incarnated into your physical bodies, you
pretty soon forgot who you were and why you came. Of course, that
forgetting has served you well because it allowed you to fully
immerse yourselves in your physical experiences.
But the true meaning of death, at one point in your human
evolution, got so scrambled, you literally lost it. It became
something you never intended. You began to see death as “the end”
of you. Your churches taught you death was even a punishment for
“sin.” And yet, they held out the hope you would go to something
better after you died.
Your governments have institutionalized death as the
ultimate penalty for “sin.” They give the “sinner” the “death
What they don’t know is they are doing the “sinners” a
favor by “penalizing” them with death. If they really wanted to
penalize them, they’d let them continue to live on in their
self-created misery instead of offering them the sweet release of
And that’s what death is to those unhappy souls who, like
John’s old friend, want nothing more than to be released from
their pain. Death is a release, a healing, a rebirth into new
life, into the joy and peace they left behind when they
You never lose those you love. In death your loved ones
are often closer to you than in life. They are right there beside
you. They want to communicate with you, to let you know they are
still there, loving you. Communication with them is no more
difficult than talking with them when they were physically right
there with you.
What you call death and life, friends, are only different
places on the spectrum of eternal life. There is no end to you.
You decide when to incarnate. You decide when to leave your
physical bodies. These are choices you make. You all choose when
to live in physical form, and when to die and leave your physical
You can live joyously and you can die joyously. You do
not have to die unhappy and ill, as John’s friend did. But when
you are in those circumstances, death truly is a healing.
It’s a time to celebrate.
