He should have been able to die quickly and through happiness since they were "prepaving" their deaths to be "happy then dead"... Not a suffering cancer lasting for months.
I'm just saying that if Abraham's teachings are 100% true, they are too hard for people to follow if Esther and Jerry can't even get it right.
Ultimately, he carved and undesired death even though he's been listening for years and they were summoned because of HIS questions. He couldn't even prepave a painless happy death correctly.
That's right. I think the common logic is that the more you are exposed to Abraham the more you should be able to apply the teachings. And if you only read the books, that might come close. But when you listen to a lot of their workshop recordings, your experience will be very different.
Abraham sometimes blurt out some funny details about Jerry and Esther and their little hang ups in daily life in order to make their point. I will always remember how Abraham told the story about how angry Jerry was with Esther because she mangled his toothpaste tube every morning and he wanted it to look so neat and tidy.
My impression is (based on Abraham's blurt outs, ie hearsay) when it's about the bigger picture of life they both had it down, but failed so often in daily life because their LOA expertise is entirely memory-based, it's more learned knowledge than perception altering realizations.
And another thing one should keep in mind is that Jerry had quite some exposure to negativity and unwanted stuff because of Abraham. Abraham was both a source of positivity and negativity for him. Jerry would listen during the workshops to people's problems, then he would listen to the recordings with Esther after the workshops ended and then he would edit these workshop recordings and later he would even compile them into series and books and videos etc. That means he must have listened to every problem presented to Abraham at least 5 times or more! Which means his focus was often on things he would not have wanted. And not only one problem but a plethora of human issues over almost 3 decades.
So I'm not surprised that what happened now happened exactly the way it happened.
