ILEGACY Learn More
1. Why do we even need to leave a ILegacy™? I am not that important.
Legacies are not only for the famous and the infamous, the notorious and the iconic. Legacies are for the every day man or woman. We leave with those we left behind the intangibles: what we gave our attention and focus, how we deduced things, how we used our attention, imagination and intuition. We leave modeling for our adaptability, resilience, agility and facileness. We had preferences, aversions and discernments. We were human need to leave our trail.
We leave our map of experiences and tools that helped us along the way. And all that we are is ours to leave to those we love to inherit and use in their own lives. They can sift through was is usable and not usable for their own lives so that they can stand on our shoulders and catapult their own legacies forward and amplify their soul’s expression. They inherit our momentum, our clarity, our freedom of intention.
A legacy is our divine right to leave a trace of ourselves behind.
2. Why do our loved ones respond to the legacies of those who have passed?
As human beings we respond to textures, colors, craftsmanship of a life well lived. We respond to the beauty that reveals strength of character. We resonate with the history of character that recreates life and death within a 100 year human time span. A legacy tells the story of the metaphorical bitter winters and searing desert summers that carve and sculpt a human life. The legacy tells of the choices and experiences that twist, torture and form the character into being.
That legacy is the story of the creation of a wide unvarnished life. A life fully lived has a legacy that has deep wearing and weathering; has the qualities of being freshly cleaned and planed on the surface so we can see the strong stalk from which the soul came. A legacy has textures, colors, craftsmanship of values, beliefs, delusions and perceptions. In its raw bareness of ‘flaws’ and ‘mistakes’, stripped of it’s beauty it recreates life and death choices, over and over again throughout a life.
We all understand that in another. We all speak the same language of the soul. Our DNA resonates to the legacy of another. Our legacy breathes us day to day, birth to death.
3. Why isn’t my ILegacy™ just about my accomplishments and achievements? Isn’t that enough?
Ask yourself – do all the trophies, medals and achievements really make the grade when compared to what evolved from them? Which is the real thing, the noun or the verb? The thing or the experience of that thing? Is the naturally flawed more interesting than the artificially induced ‘perfection’? Was our journey here on earth to match the dominant thought? Or are those peak moments of acknowledgement better as punctuated bright spots in a life, much like strong spices in a favorite dish? You do not have to work hard to mimic what is naturally within you that matches all of nature. If you need to bring light to the less accomplished parts of your life then add texture to the subtlety to get what you want.
4. Why would one want to put their mistakes and flaws in full public view at death when we all want to be remembered in our best light?
We are all made in perfection, a clean canvas of beautiful humanity. If we remained the clean pure canvas at death we would have wasted an experiential opportunity for our soul. The flaws, mistakes, irregularities, distortions and wear and tear are engaging. It creates chemistry, attraction, aversion and movement toward or away from our intention. But it engages us. The striations, mottled, rusted, dank and melding variations invite us to look again. It catches our attention, and draws us in. We are curious rubber-neckers in life. We are intrigued with how one takes an eyesore and transforms it to graceful. We are hypnotized by the way our fellow man’s life graduates from strong to pale, even to a washed out hue. Just as we are mesmerized by day’s dawn, so too are we equally entranced with night’s dusk.
Comparatively we are drawn to the fireworks of birth, so too the fading of the sparkle of life at death.
5. You make it sound like there is such a thing as a ‘Good Death’. If so, why do people fear death and become uncomfortable talking about it?
Discovering one’s legacy means having to dig through piles of musty, rusty memories that have been grouped by category. It gets dirty and it’s hard. One has to take care that the memories captured for the legacy are not rotten and unable to resurrect, or impossible to come to terms with. But those that one sorts, examines in their original form, will give that memory new life with a new form and perspective.
These are the memories that are most dear and hold the highest quality. If you do the work to feel and understand fully, you’ll feel full and complete when you pass on. In this way you can have a healthy passing, while still leaving your mark on those you leave behind.
6. How will I feel once I have taken the ILegacy™ Tutorial?
The eye that works harder is rewarded. In the absence of brilliant clear color, of new, better and best, the shadows will reveal what is serene, sophisticated, restrained, quiet, and recessed. You’ll feel peace, calm and certainty. Your legacy will have a healing calming quality that will intrigue your loved ones.
Furthermore, the benefit of leaving a way to bond with you past the portal of passing to comfort them in their loss, grief and void will be an incentive to be curious and compassionate. It will take the sting of fear out of the completion of this natural life cycle for you, and give them courage when they have to face finality themselves.
