Bernard Poolman passed away in the early hours of Sunday morning, 11 August 2013 (SA time). His heart stopped beating. From Creations Journey to Life: My Dad, the Devil
When I read the news that Bernard Poolman passed away I was shocked. I looked over at my partner and just couldn’t believe what I read. Bernard…dead?
At times I feared the man, but it was more like, feared what he would say because I knew that I could find something out about myself that I didn’t want to see or admit. He knew exactly what to say to get people to wake up, and for that, I am grateful. Without him and what he has done through the support he has provided for people through writings, interviews and online chats, the Desteni group wouldn’t be as strong as it is now with the focus and drive to bring a world Best for All.
It wasn’t until his death and reading personal stories from those who physically met him that I saw Bernard in a totally different way than what I perceived him to be. That is another indication to me that my mind cannot be trusted because I had formed ideas about him and it’s really useless to do so because only through physically meeting a person is the truth revealed. Now I am reading his writings and listening to his videos from a different perspective. I see that I had come to depend on Bernard and his support for my process where I had not been standing firmly on my feet and walking this process self-honestly. From this, I realize I have work to do to re-establish who I am, my starting point and the process I am walking.
I am grateful that I was able to interact with him through online chats. I had a few personal interactions with him online when I needed specific support. For example, I needed assistance on a child I was working with at a school who had major behavioral issues that was affecting his time in the classroom. I asked Bernard if he had any support on how to work with a child like that and he explained exactly why the child was acting the way he did and the problem came down to vocabulary and reading. Bernard said that a way to assist the child is working with a certain computer software program. I knew of this software beforehand and how costly it was, but Bernard offered me the software free with additional support from him and his contacts. I couldn’t believe it that he gave me something like that for free for me and the child, and as I worked with the child on the software, the child’s behavior and reading level improved within the next 5 months.
Bernard also assisted and supported me to see the disharmony and conflict I was experiencing in the beginning of my relationship with my partner because of what I was accepting and allowing.
Michelle: I realized from my (previous) chat with Sunette I was judging (me and my partner’s) enjoyment, and becoming more quiet within my conversation with him
Bernard: “So, what have you Learned? The Power of Judgment can Change a Person? And Limit your Expression?”
Michelle: Yeah – it was not cool – I was listening to my backchat and thinking that I’m talking to him too much.
In another chat I said to Sunette that the relationship with my partner is like “bumps in the road” and Bernard came through:
Bernard: “I Love bumps in the road…Bumps give one Feedback, that backchat can be Real – that’s Why bumps is something that one must remove from the backchat. Or, it could turn into Zits – little yellow mountains on your skin…so Lovely.”
He knew just what to say to get me to see what I was doing so I could correct myself in the relationship, and as for the zit part — what do you know, about three days after the chat I popped a nasty yellow pus-filled zit on my back, lol.
Bernard understood the mind in exact detail, understood the world system and had a solution for each problem. From that he was able to understand all kinds of people from all walks of life. I have read chats where he gave support to people on everything from erectile dysfunction to effective parenting, providing thorough explanations and points for people to look at and understand.
Looking at all this, Bernard became who he was because he actually LIVED the principles of Equality and Oneness through walking a process of writing, self-honesty, self-forgiveness and self-corrective application. This is the same process that we at Desteni are currently walking, to become that which Bernard stood as – a being of Life – no mind/energy/consciousness influence, but of absolute self-directive principle within Equality and Oneness. He himself proved that anyone can walk this process, because he did it himself and continued to stand as an example of what is possible. Bernard applied and lived the principles of Jesus in practical reality; the principles being: Give as you would like to receive, Do unto another that which you would like to be done unto you, and Investigate all things and keep that which is good.
I wish I could have physically met him, but in a way, Bernard is still here – his interviews, words and writings are still here – and it now up to me and everyone as humanity to walk this process until we have a world Best for All. I miss him, but I also realize it’s necessary to move on, and do what needs to be done.
“So if you Respect, Love, Appreciate and are Grateful to Bernard, to his Existence and the work that he left in this world – commit yourself to live by his words, as I commit myself to live by the example that he was for all of us Here.” ~ Marlen Vargas Del Razo
“Many beings will be sad because Bernard has died – but his death is not about keeping a legacy alive, hell no – we’re not going to ‘honor his memory’. He would have said: “fuck that.” lol – Honoring Bernard is honoring ourselves as life – Honoring Bernard is sharing the Living Word as it has been shared with us and to stand in every moment of Breath here walking the process of establishing a world that is best for all. I will miss Bernard tremendously and I am eternally grateful to have met him. But even for those who haven’t met Bernard in person – it is not a loss. Because Bernard was never about the personal. He said: “You must become me as I am you, so that we can trust each other no matter where we are, no matter who we are.”” – Anna Brix Thomsen
“Bernard had no judgment toward anyone or anything, because he realized that that is the key to us ever changing – is for us to Forgive. Forgive each other, Forgive ourselves, and MOVE ON. To let go of everything and start anew, because it’s the only way we can get out of these same patterns that we’ve been living as for practically as long as we’ve existed. We have to forgive ourselves of the patterns we’ve existed as, so that we can become something else, so that we can Forge ourselves as beings that Care for Ourselves and Care for Each Other, and never again allow such Extreme Abuse to take place as we have allowed thus far.” – Kelly Posey
“For those that are walking process, as I have mentioned, have been walking it for themselves, the MY-SELF – the realisation that: the process to Life each one has to walk, is INDIVIDUALLY. Thus, the process is the same, but the point that one will stand, HOW one will express as the Principle, Direct as the Principle – will be different for each one and can only be discovered through one’s self-honesty within and as the starting-point Principle and the walking of the Tools. So, remember – the process is to self realise through/as YOUR-SELF, not BERNARD-SELF. I mean, if in the dictionary it was referenced as BERNARD-SELF, then yeah lol – it would be to “become Bernard”…but it’s not. Bernard self-realised HIM-SELF, so you have to self-realise YOUR-SELF. And this “him/her” and “your” SELF – the SELF-point is where we’re standing within the principle of equality and oneness as life as what is best for all. It is the journey to life of the SELF – of myself as Sunette, of yourself as you. How we’re going to be/stand/direct – you cannot “know”, cause it’s NOT a knowledge point, you can only discover is through actually LIVING the principle and this is/will be a process from Consciousness to Awareness, from System to Life – the birthing of self as life in/as the Physical.
Have a look – it’s myself, yourself, him/her-self – the SELF point is the equal point, is the oneness point. So, this is the point that has to stand in the principle of/as equality and oneness as what is best for all, and then the “my / your / him/her” is the point where each one will be ‘individual’ in terms of how you will stand/express/direct as life. Bernard had walked his point, now it’s time to find/realise/live your point – and we will all find/realise that point through how he found/realised his point, which is through the Tools Desteni Provides.” – Sunette Spies of Heaven’s Journey to Life
