Larry,

My apologies for the tardiness of my reply to your request regarding what you refer to as "death duty" as I have been in the process of packing/moving/unpacking to a new residence for the last month and just got my internet service yesterday.

I re-post for you below a posting by Ron Besser in 2015 very interesting information regarding the administration of "last rights"  as I believe this is the information you are requesting.  Please let me know if I am incorrect Larry.

Here are the instructions then given:


DISASTER INFORMATION SECTION / LAST RITES

« Message by Ron Besser on July 10, 2015, 11:43:19 PM »
There has been added a section by Jesus and Serara to the bottom of this post which was originally placed in another thread.  I have moved the subject of LAST RITES to this Category for its own discussion space

<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/vodw7hkJmwo?feature=player_detailpage" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>


I also have inserted an embedded video on Exploring the Fear of Dissolution or Death by Rupert Spira on 10/27/2015 and runs about 14 minutes.  It speaks to death as the dissolution by sleep where we lay down our thoughts and we sleep with no fear because we always come back again and we have ourselves.  That is just a death briefly met so we meet our sleep a few days longer and we are ourselves again in resurrection.

LAST RITES

The last rites is a ritual we use on Salvington to bathe a person in the light of God when they must remove themselves from the worst of disasters a man or woman can suffer, and that is to die alone on a beach or on a battlefield on some planet so barbaric they do not even bother to bury their dead.  The body is cast aside, but it is also left alone by the beasts and the birds who prey upon the carcass. In so doing, God enjoins all beasts of prey and all carrion hunters to abide one thing before they feast, and that is to allow the body stay unmolested for a few minutes while the heart of God removes the soul and sends it immediately to safety in the arms of God.  In so doing there are certain things another human can do if nearby.  Close the eyes of the one who has died, for those eyes still behold the light of the day or celestial bodies of the night even though the brain cannot analyze the scene.  Once the eyes are closed over by forcing the eyelid down from its folded position under the eyebrow, dislocate the hands from their sides and place them over the chest.  Fold them so the tips of their fingers touch each other as this allows the fluids in the hand to break open the capillaries and allows the warmth of life to dissipate and turn to room or if in the outdoors, to the temperature presently experienced.

The last rites have one other action, and that is to bless the life that has been lived, and pray to the Father, audibly, I seek your mercy Father for this one and pass him or her on to the great lands of God where they may take up life again.

In keeping this simple prayer to Father beholding the promise for a new life, the soul will immediately turn to the light.  One may never worry for such a soul when prepared to leave with this prayer on their brow.

When this prayer is done, and you have placed their hands across their chest, allow the body to be removed as it should be either from attendants nearby or by humans who are working to remove those who have met their end and to remove them to sanctuary.


DEATH AND TRANSFIGURATION

I now turn to the last rites as completed, and the soul is on the way, and we have the body now removed, and the soul has gone to the light and is nevermore on Urantia.  What happens to the person who has signed them away this way?

You, if you are the one who has closed their eyes and folded their hands on their chest and blessed them to the Father, will feel no chill, but a heart rendering sob deep within you as you did that day when you knew, Ron, your dad was dying before your eyes.  That Thought Adjuster spoke to you in your heart and the sob that broke the silence was the finality of death and the leaving of your family from you forever more.  In that moment you were released and shed no further tears until he was buried in the cemetery.  You carried his ashes to the crypt and others watched with tears in their eyes, but you did not cry.  Why?

You, as others will be, are released from the sorrow of death by the Adjusters when they leave the mortal they indwell.  This happens only when you attend to their death or are in their presence of dying and Adjusters do that with the eye of thought to hold you well when others cannot maintain composure for the lost one.  Grief overwhelms everyone at the death of a loved one, especially a family member, and you Ron, so loved your parents you could not bear their deaths.  But you learned to deny them when they were ill of mind and you let them ring your neck when you had to have their help again.  This is not known to anyone, but you also managed to save them from the loss of each other over and over, and they will some day bring you the news they lost nothing after your reappearance with them.  Your mother in particular knows nothing of this work, but she will.

Whatever the situation is between those who prepare parents, loved ones, even strangers, for their journey to the mansion worlds, leave the Father in charge as it is he who stands between you and the death of those you care about.  Pray for the mercy of the Father to bring the soul safely to their resting place and resurrection.  It is evident that Ron does not know that the soul, once released on Urantia, has waiting its own morontial form now.  It did not use to be true, but Michael has ordered that the soul, if the third psychic circle or above, be placed in a conscious vehicle so that it may choose its direction and affirm it wishes resurrected.  Any soul that has not reached the third psychic circle will be provided a moment of consciousness for this choice as well.


DEATH & MISCONFIGURATION

It happens.  Sometimes souls sleep so deeply they cannot be awakened at the mansion world depot.  When this happens the light of God ascends from the routine of Mercy and slips into their minds and gently takes charge so that they hear and come into consciousness.  When this happens there appears the Adjuster of former indwelling and affirms that the soul needs to sleep awhile in order to heal its difficulties.  Our work on high brings to our attention so many variations in soul awakening we cannot possibly bring all the variations to the reader, but we can tell you that the soul is resilient to the point it can withstand a thousand morontia years of sleep before it tires of the sleep.  Sleep of the soul comes for two reasons:  It must make amends for its behavior on Urantia; or, It must take time to reconstruct its mind matrix in order to be heard as a full person.  Ron's mother slept for one month of Urantia time although she confirmed to Ron she had arrived on the mansion worlds which helped him a great deal.  His father sleeps still as he was an Alzheimer patient for too long, and his mind deteriorated before they could resurrect the soul quickly enough to save most of what he had accumulated as a civic leader.  He is now resting on mansion world two with your mother and they will rejoin life when they are both well enough to see to their mutual development.

In the last analysis, soul awakening on the mansion worlds is routine and billions if not trillions go through it every day on the Satania System.  The fact that Urantia may lose over one billion people due to tectonic plates shifting in one day is easily handled by the resurrection chambers.  We now leave this area for an announcement of unusual proportions:


JESUS:   I seldom appear at a death on Urantia, but since Ron has moved this discussion to another part of this web site that deals with disasters, many of you will have to officiate in the name of God to see that some people may pass with gladness to the other side.  I am making this available to all of you who will be on staff, and it is this:

Because you are outstanding models of humanity on Urantia, we want you to conduct yourselves as though you were priests of the Most Highs, much as Machiventa Melchizedek was at the time of Abraham.  Melchizedek officiated at many deaths on Urantia, and felt them keenly at once for their names and for their blessings to be taken on high for resurrection or eventual resurrection.  In do doing he made it clear that all men and women of the day had to stand before the judges, but in this day, you will not have the time or the patience to remind them of this habit of the universe to judge before resurrection.  In my day in Palestine I was too judged when I died as I went before the judges as they were then and fell to my knees when bade to do so.  You are not alone in wishing this kind of ordeal to be done, and they must use the moment of time you have with them before they die, to drive home the idea they are passing into the serenity of death and not an ordeal of judgement.

As a Most High once said to me as I was passing through the lands of Edentia in one of my bestowals, "do not become so sure of yourself Jesus that you lose the Heart of God once you have passed the portals of human mortality, for the human must stand before many judges and stand erect or bow on one knee before their sentence, and when that is done you are free to conduct yourself before the majesty of God."  In these words I knew that God was going to be kind to me but I had to face the reality that even with my standard views of the human, I could miss the mark as to their needs and as to their wishes at death.  I have since give over to some thought about the FINAL RITES or LAST RITES in order to configure what those who are on staff must learn to do when faced with tragedy in the front of others who must wait for the final order to leave their bodies.

One of the things that must be considered is how long you tarry with the body once the person has passed.  I suggest no more than three minutes if that.  In order for the body to be exhumed on high, the person who works to help them pass should remove themselves quickly and attend to others and then leave the area within ten minutes.  I say this to Ron who stays with those who are needing him for he tends to linger so they are okay, but he has officiated at one such death and attended to two others whom he prefers not to mention, but it caused him great embarrass before the wife of the suddenly deceased when he had to break the news to her and her child.   The clergy deferred to Ron which he did not want them to do.  But they insisted he take the responsibility and he did so coldly, for he was unable to control his emotions without resorting to absolute emotional control for the deceased and he had talked about God frequently and even the Urantia Book.  The results were unhappy and we see to it that she has better comfort than that today.  The point to be made is that in order to maintain decorum (for Ron was in shock and grieving too), the man decided to just say what happened and offered no condolences other than to say he was deeply sorry.  She took it as a pass at his thoughts and not of being sorry Dennis had died tragically hours before.  I point to this example that it is better to not say anything at all when giving last rites than to tightly control your emotions and say something that comes off cold and indifferent.  It is a way to stem the emotions and not cold feelings to give the bereaved, so keep yourself a distance from those who need ministry, as you are not asked to provide ministry.

I am Jesus, and beheld enough dying in my day on the road to Damascus as a caravan leader.  I took the camels to the City and left them there as bid to do, but on my return the scourge of the desert hit and hundreds died as I passed by.  I am not a happy camper over what I saw and how poorly they understood the need for sanitation, but I do know that many will come before you foul and unkempt.  Wash them and have them stand in a shower to drench them of all they had to go through to get here.  Leave all who come to you for help alone for a few minutes as you prepare the world to receive them again if they are to live.  Let those who are already too ill to continue tarry as they wait for you, and when you return they may tell you they are dying and that you need to attend to the needs of their wishes for any property they have on them or to get a message to a person who needs to hear what happened to them, and do so as best you can, and then leave them to absolve themselves of the diary of their lives.  When they die, give them their last rites.

SERARA: I speak after Jesus, as he knows the whole nine yards of disaster and death and tragedy.  I am not a happy person either in the face of death as I prefer sun and the shining waters of a lake or the house of bright light and beautiful furnishings.  You who know what I mean know the difference of the kinds of life so many people live shut away never to see nature or enjoy the feel of warm sunshine on their skin in rest.  Death duty, and all of you will attend at least one person who must be given the last rites, will be understood in its day as the last placement of a human's words to another human on Urantia.  Take the life of what you have been given to provide last rites as one of fine fare and leave nothing undone as to their last wishes and there desire to be heard by those they loved and either had a family with or were married to or whatever other circumstance they enjoyed at the time.

Ron, I know you feel desperately ill as the last moment approaches; we saw it with your parents and you will have it with your brother and his wife, as they may have to depend on you to have the last supper in a little while before you go one to your duties with me.  I see the one called "Barbie" calling you too as she knows the depth of your feelings for the departed ones, in this case your Aunt called Gloria who now rests comfortably on mansion world three.  Her work there is to wait for Jane (mother of Ron) and expect to have a good time for awhile as she introduces Jane to the variety of life on mansion world three.  The course is true for all of you on staff, and that you must be prepared to meet those you help once again on the mansion worlds for they want to work for the Magisterial Mission once they understand that it was you, a staff member of the Magisterial Mission, that helped them over.

I am Serara, and this is unpleasant to all of you, and I suggest that your resolve this issue in your own mind before you decide who will be the one to tell you that you are no longer required to hear from Serara, but to bow before him as Ron chooses to, and that I await your presence before me to tell you that all who bow before me are immediately taken to the inner sanctum of the Church of God there and then and presented with the wreath of the divine service award.  Ron you already wear it and you will not get another one, but you insist on pledging to me your fidelity and trust and for that I will provide you the time and place to do so.

I shall be with everyone of you as you assign the last rites to the dying, and I will get to see you at your worst and at your best doing what is required of every staff member under my tutelage.  In the case of your friend Steven and Sue, they must make the effort you do Ron, to stand before me and provide me the oath we agreed upon when you asked for the words to be spoken before me' they are:

I am your liege,
I am your servant,
I give all that I am, and give unto Father all that he desires.
I give unto Serara all that he wishes and live me life for him and the planet Urantia.

The last rites, like the last supper are all a human can participate in, in providing God some help to finish something that was of this earth and to be made different in heaven.  Learn well your place.  Learn always to help the living; learn well to help the dying when called upon to do so.

I am Serara, and we all shall meet that day we call a Symposium to celebrate the appearance of Jesus before us and I announce the beginning of the Magisterial Mission, as I am right now, in the flesh.

 Thanks Ron,

I tend to be a visual person and this chart, with both the simplified version and the accompanying detail explanation, is and will be very helpful to remember and especially to explain to others.

Thinking about this subject and Rons comment in another post about  how up to half the current population will possibly moving on to the Mansion worlds because of the natural disasters, it occured to me that regardless of whether one goes on to the Mansion worlds at this point or remains here in the flesh, the same challenges to personal belief systems and adaptations to life will be faced by both groups.

Those who remain in the flesh will I am sure be doing some deep soul searching and those who wake up in the Mansion worlds will be facing the same challenges to their belief systems and personal expectations (if they have any).  Life as we've known it will never be the same for both groups and willingness to co-operate and adapt will be vital for either form of survival.

We can be assured however that, whether we remain here in the flesh or move on to the Mansion worlds (if this is our time), loving provision is in place for our re-education and re-orientation and the truth, beauty and goodness that is ours for the asking, once we get out of our own way.

Hi Lemuel,

The Salvation Army is definitely here in Canada and in the U.S.  When my children were very young in the mid-80's I became very close with a Salvation Army couple with 3 very young children until they relocated a few years later to her home town in Maine, U.S.A.  They were very dedicated to outreach and helping others any way they could and he had a regular ministry in the local prison bringing the message of hope to so many hurting souls.  Though we lost touch over the years I remember them with great fondness.  The Salvation Army here provides temporary accommodation, meals, and many other supportive services to those in need and the proceeds from their local donation stores go to fund these outreach missions to the needy.

P.S.  In response to Larry's comments made while I was posting this, I would just like to say that I personally have to believe that the true heart motive and intentions of many people, regardless of the "religious affiliation" through whom they have chosen to profess their faith, will be the motivating factor in their service to Father when they are faced with the many changes and revelations coming their way, and that their personal moral convictions will be strengthened and guide them through all turmoil in the upcoming interregnum.

I grew up hearing the phrase “why put off until tomorrow what you can do today” and try to be true to that, as I believe it serves me well for the most part.   My wonderful Adjuster gave me the phrase years ago “today is a present, open and joy”  and the point is, as you reiterated today, we don’t have yesterday, we don’t have tomorrow, we only have ‘today’, ‘now’ the ‘present’ so live it.  

On my favorite coffee mugs it says  “Live Today, Cherish Yesterday, Dream Tomorrow”.

Lemuel and Ron I absolutely agree with your delight in hearing bird song.  I grew up enjoying the birds on a little dairy farm with a brook bordering it on two sides and found them such a delight, including the Baltimore Orioles mentioned.  Hearing bird song seems so rare these days and I always found it so welcoming and delightful. I will be moving to my own apartment next weekend and will have a balcony..yippee…and be able to open the door and see and hear nature again whenever I want and I am so looking forward to that and more.

Thank you for all you shared today dear Brother Lemuel!

Regarding tinnitus,

I suffered from TMJ  in the mid to late 90's with associated constant headaches and ringing in my ears 24/7.  Attempts by my dentist at the time, via a mouthguard to alleviate teeth grinding, etc.,brought on by stress,  progressed for 6 months to a year to no avail and the dentist told me there was nothing else he could do for me.   I had to find ways to relieve stress (and I'm not talking pharmaceutical or non-pharmaceutical drug treatment here) such as muscle relaxation etc.  Muscle relaxers prescribed for TMJ are extremely hard on the digestive system and I therefore used them very sparingly during that period.

Since about 2010 I discovered I had a systematic infection and one of the side-effects was tinnitus as well, as my sinuses are greatly affected.  I finally believe I am winning this battle and the tinnitus is now occassional and usually when it happens I remember to make a point to listen for spiritual input.

I will try to be more consistent in awareness that this is a possible prompt from spirit.

Thank you

Thanks Ron for posting this here for us and thank you Xsamuel for the introduction through Chris Maurus of your presence and purpose here on this planet.  We do so need and appreciate all the special assistance that is afforded to us and humbly receive your benevolent ministry that will enable us to better function in conjunction with Fathers will and ways.

I doubt we can imagine the extent of the damage caused with the rebellion but I picture those circuits being like the knotted skanes of yarn I used to spend hours unravelling for my mothers knitting as a child.  It taught me patience and perseverance as many times the task loomed impossible to my eyes and mind.  It was always well worth the effort however, when I would then watch her take that same yarn, that was such an unusable mess, and right before my eyes her skilled hands turn it into a beautiful afghan or baby or other special garment.  Thank you again Xsamuel and your comrades for tackling this task.

THE UNIVERSAL FATHER:

“I AM the Universal One who speaks to His children of nascent origin on this planet and ascribe to their being all that is necessary for the revelation and knowledge of my will and my placement available to every heart and mind open to its reception.

“Your free-will is my gift to each and every one as is my gift of unique personality bestowal and I would draw you all to myself, to the very heart of my being if you would but heed my call within you, for I call you not to the impossible but to the possible.  I call you to the upliftment of your mind your body and your soul.  I call you to be perfect even as I am perfect not because it is an impossible task but because I AM the origin of your being and I would have you here with me in the understanding of who you are as my children of creation on the worlds of time and space.  

“I have not made myself far from you, I have overcome for you every obstacle of time and space by the gifting of my presence within your very being.  I call you incessantly home to the origin of all life and in heeding the voice of my call, as a Father to his children, you will discover the uniqueness of who you are and have the opportunity to meet with your many brothers and sisters along the way.  You will find me in your mortal and universe brethren when you seek me for, as you seek me and find me in my many forms along your journey, you will also find yourself and clarify your desires and purpose and the meaning of your being.

“Do not turn away from that which you do not understand but rather seek for the plenteous assistance awaiting your curious searching, for it is undoubtedly in seeking that you will find and in asking that you will receive, for I have declared it so.

“Put aside your confusion and prepare yourself to walk into the light of understanding and the power of experience and join your brethren who seek and find as they seek first my kingdom and search out my ways ever reachable for discovery.

“I AM your Father in Heaven and I cry out to my children to search me out and find me, and I will answer.”

MICHAEL OF NEBADON:

“I am your Local Universe Father and heart of the Universal Father in this Local Universe called Nebadon who came to the children of this planet on my final bestowal for Universe sovereignty in the material form of Joshua Ben Joseph, Jesus of Nazareth, born of woman through the process provided for such a bestowal to live a life in mortal flesh.  I came to represent to every one of my inhabited worlds the will of the Father lived in the body of mortal flesh and the revelation to my children of the kingdom of God that dwells within the heart of every flesh born mortal of moral choosing.  My goal and my purpose were the enlightenment to my children of the love of the Universal Father and the call to brotherhood in his kingdom.  My message remains.”

Thank you to the Power Directors, Father Michael and Ron for this fascinating information posted early this morning.

I always enjoy watching the latest in our planets scientific discoveries and searched the internet to see what we may have discovered so far as our scientists scour the skies with our latest technologies.  I found a site posting from March 2016 regarding the black hole in the Cancer constellation with some interesting NASA photos and diagrams  https://www.universetoday.com/127844/18-billion-solar-mass-black-hole-rotates-at-13-speed-of-light/.

Regarding this quote from Ron's post below:

Quote
"We as Power Directors have little to do with human contact, but we do use space craft to obtain physical measurements for our own work to control gravity and space and star forces on Urantia, for Urantia lies smack dab in the middle of one of the most powerful g-forces in the universe, as an undetected dark space body orbits another solar system close by, and it forces Urantia into a synchronous orbit around the black hole itself.  This orbit center is not in Sagittarius as the Urantia Book reports, but around a smaller constellation known to you as Cancer.  In July, you are in apogee to the black hole your solar system moves around, and you can feel no real force pulling you outward at this point since you are at the greatest distance from the orbit center.

Dear Amethyst,

Thank you so much for asking this question that has been on my mind since their announcement and am reminded of every day when I give thanks for their presence with us.  I appreciate the details provided and am determined to fight my way through my mess of health and other issues to do whatever it takes to fuse while here as a mortal in the flesh and become a better contributor to the manifestation of Fathers will and ways on this planet and anything I am deemed able to contribute to the betterment of this planet and her people through the Missions.

I thank Stella and her comrades as well as all other benovelent celestials for their ministry to us and their service to our Father.

Domtia - Hello and Goodbye and wishing you my heart to meet again
Bynotria - Let us pray together for each others love of God
Urboytia  - Let us work together

This reminds me of a journal entry I have from last November to my beloved "team" where I bring up these same points and voice a similar commitment.

Thank you Probius, Pre'Mtor and Sue,

I love this analogy of the "stitch in time", I grew up in a very poor household and you didn't even consider throwing anything away or not making a valiant attempt to repair what you had.  My mother taught "a stitch in time saves nine" and to this day I believe in that principle that can so widely be applied.  As with many of you I'm sure, it concerns me that we live in such a "throw away" society that has little value for anyone or anything and is so encouraged to disgard and replace when the 'new' wears off or the next best thing comes along.  

To me this is not being against change or progress but about recognizing the value and usefulness of what you have and honoring that value using foresight and creativity.

I am also reminded of a wonderful poem passed down through my grandmother to my mother and myself that originated from Corrie Ten Boom entitled "Lifes Weaving" that I post the link for, as I believe it to be a similar thread of thought which I have placed in another category http://forum.serara.org/index.php?topic=10682.new#new

I have been blessed to have done cross stitch and embroidery in my lifetime and it certainly presents this difference as well between the upper and under side.

Thank you again Probius, Pre'Mtor and Sue "like a garment stitched together"..."in this service of love"..."to progress in the work with the Creative Parents, who also work in this timely manner to achieve an abundant life to wear well.”

LIFE'S WEAVING

My life is but a weaving
between my God and me;
I may not choose the colors,
He knows what they should be;

For He can view the pattern
Upon the upper side,
While I can see it only
On this, the under side.

Sometimes He weaveth sorrow,
Which seemeth strange to me;
But I will trust His judgment;
And work on faithfully;

'Tis he who fills the shuttle,
He knows just what is best;
So I shall weave in earnest
And leave with Him the rest.

At last, when life is ended,
With Him I shall abide,
Then I may view the pattern
Upon the upper side;

Then I shall know the reason
Why pain with joy entwined,
Was woven in the fabric
Of life that God designed.

Dear Lemuel,

The Urantia Book most certainly attempts to bring the need and value of 'experience' to our conscious understanding as it refers to and highlights the need for 'experience' repeatedly and just to name a few examples:

- experiential knowledge
- experiential wisdom
- experiential reason
- experiential destiny
- experiential existence
- experiential evolution

I offer a few examples from the Urantia Book:

"(31:3.7) 3. The glorified mortals of the Paradise Corps of Finality are ascendant beings in possession of experiential knowledge of every step of the actuality and philosophy of the fullest possible life of intelligent existence, while during the ages of this ascent from the lowest material worlds to the spiritual heights of Paradise, these surviving creatures have been trained to the limits of their capacity respecting every detail of every divine principle of the just and efficient, as well as merciful and patient, administration of all the universal creation of time and space."

(118:8.6) The slowness of evolution, of human cultural progress, testifies to the effectiveness of that brake—material inertia—which so efficiently operates to retard dangerous velocities of progress. Thus does time itself cushion and distribute the otherwise lethal results of premature escape from the next-encompassing barriers to human action. For when culture advances overfast, when material achievement outruns the evolution of worship-wisdom, then does civilization contain within itself the seeds of retrogression; and unless buttressed by the swift augmentation of experiential wisdom, such human societies will recede from high but premature levels of attainment, and the "dark ages" of the interregnum of wisdom will bear witness to the inexorable restoration of the imbalance between self-liberty and self-control.

(180:5.2) Divine truth is a spirit-discerned and living reality. Truth exists only on high spiritual levels of the realization of divinity and the consciousness of communion with God. You can know the truth, and you can live the truth; you can experience the growth of truth in the soul and enjoy the liberty of its enlightenment in the mind, but you cannot imprison truth in formulas, codes, creeds, or intellectual patterns of human conduct. When you undertake the human formulation of divine truth, it speedily dies. The post-mortem salvage of imprisoned truth, even at best, can eventuate only in the realization of a peculiar form of intellectualized glorified wisdom. Static truth is dead truth, and only dead truth can be held as a theory. Living truth is dynamic and can enjoy only an experiential existence in the human mind.

(112:5.5) And it is this very power of choice, the universe insignia of freewill creaturehood, that constitutes man's greatest opportunity and his supreme cosmic responsibility. Upon the integrity of the human volition depends the eternal destiny of the future finaliter; upon the sincerity of the mortal free will the divine Adjuster depends for eternal personality; upon the faithfulness of mortal choice the Universal Father depends for the realization of a new ascending son; upon the steadfastness and wisdom of decision-actions the Supreme Being depends for the actuality of experiential evolution."

Domtia Lemuel and your Beloved Adjuster for this timely reminder

I picture people standing on the shoreline of a beautiful beach on a hot day watching someone enjoying the refreshing coolness of the water and waves, that refreshes and even strengthens them, beckoning to those on shore to "come on in the water's fine".
