Post from "Soft Bird", formerly "Fierce Bird"

Hi Ananda,
I tried to post this on the blog. This is what I got the evening of the day David passed on:


David: You are accustomed to my body form so we will use that, but now I am not limited by it, nor was I before, though people thought I was.

Dying is not as profound a change as those in bodies think. It is a shift to another way of being. You let go of being able to manipulate the physical world, but you gain a comprehensive awareness that is overwhelming.

Lisa: I am not as fierce a bird as I used to be.

David: Yes, your feathers are softer now.

Lisa: Do you have advice for me?

David: Be the softest bird you can be. Whatever you think is in the way of you being a soft bird, this is just beautiful feathers. Fluff up your feathers and be a bird that sings just to sing.
