Faces in a Graveyard Tree Trunk … by Alice B. Clagett ..

Dear Ones,

I was walking in a graveyard near sunset about a week ago, and I noticed a very unusual tree trunk. I saw just about a zillion things in it, to do with death and dying and the occult teachings of the School of Theosophy regarding death and the afterlife.

It looks to me as if nature spirits … specifically, tree spirits … may have done this work. Here’s the tree trunk …

Next I’ll show some portions of the tree trunk, and what I saw in them.

This looked to me like the astral form of a man arising, as from his body that might just have died. In other words. ‘passing on’ to the afterlife …

Here is the composite: The arising astral body is on the left, the two angels’ faces are slightly lower, wings uplifted on the right, as if they were bearing the astral body heavenward …

This next image, from the center portion of the tree trunk, appeared to me to have three faces in it: A man’s face expressing the agony of death throes; a man’s face expressing serene acceptance of death’ and the face of a desire elemental, which looks like a fearful animal (a little like a hedgehog) …

This last excerpt from the image of three faces looked to me like the profile of an animal … maybe a hedgehog, standing upward … the nose is to the top left, the open mouth and the squinting eye just below the nose.

This reminded me of the desire elemental longing for life in the human body to continue. But with death, it must wrap itself around the departing astral body, where it will only endure until the desires that animate the astral body naturally dissolve and fade away.

Then, according to the School of Theosophy, a ‘second death’ will occur … the death of the astral body … when the higher and lower mental bodies withdraw into a shell for refinement of Soul wisdom, until the time of the ego’s next incarnation …

At the bottom of the trunk, I saw two images: One, of an Earth-bound spirit or ghost, and one of a decaying corpse, returning to the elements of which it was formed …

Here is a cutout of the first of the two images at the base of the of the tree trunk. To me it looked like an Earth-bound spirit or ghost, hovering near the graveyard, and waiting for release from the Earth plane …

Here is the other cutout from the image at the base of the tree trunk. This one looks to me like a corpse that is decomposing and returning to rest in Mother Earth …
