Ah yes… This expression was used often by the Ultimate Warrior as it became quite famous in of itself. It actually is still referenced today but again as with most concepts he used, it goes deeper. I’m going a little deeper today as I thought of what to share. My thoughts go from sharing to not, details that will be accepted or freak some of you out, and all that in between. Well, after having a few similarities with some other men in my life, I decided to express my views to all of you.
Hold onto those ropes warriors because this post is kinda different and personal in a new way. Just to preface— I’m not getting religious or even super spiritual but just trying to help you find connectors despite perhaps a sad subject. I’m also not going overboard on emotion but explaining details that involve a three count of my uncle, father- in-law, and Warrior. All three have passed but they share some aspects of parts unknown together. They also share parts in my book Spirit and Belief. Now, they are in a blog post together. Imagine that!
All three had the Universe working to keep them around for a few events in their lives before heading up to parts unknown. My uncle had experienced ill health for a while and by the year 2002, was getting worse. First, it was my wedding and then 2 weeks later was my cousin’s who is his youngest daughter. Little did I know with all the planning just how sick he truly was. Here’s another 222 I referenced last week. Our wedding happened, 2 weeks after was my cousin’s, and then 2 weeks later my uncle passed away. I don’t fully know if he asked to be kept around just to be part of these weddings but am so grateful he was. Not only was he my uncle but he was also my godfather. Even though it became a huge loss, he got to be there for those family celebrations. I needed to see the good.
My father-in-law ( who has a big story in my book but my uncle gets a spirit visit dream mention) shared a little bit of a family event just in a smaller way. I won’t describe my experience in the book but in 2009 after surviving the previous year with many problems, he passed a few days after my son’s 5th birthday. We had promised this boy a small family party at Chuck E. Cheese for months now and he was so excited. Nobody wants someone to pass on their birthday although my uncle above did pass on one of his grandson’s birthdays. It was sad then but I like to look at it as a special connection they have now.
Back to my father-in-law’s story. I did ask to please keep him around so our excited boy could celebrate his special day. I know prayers or requests aren’t always answered in the way we hope but for this time, it was. When my husband visited his Dad in the hospital early that morning, he wished his grandson a happy 5th birthday. Parts unknown delivered and even though my father-in-law wasn’t able to join us, he was still here just less than an hour away.
That takes us to Warrior. I know fans will always speculate on so many details of his passing and I’m not dwelling on the sadness. We all have questions like: “Did he know he was dying?” or “Did he ask to just have that weekend before he goes?” Oh, so many, many more that are not for us to know. Despite all that, the Universe up in parts unknown kept him here to become part of WWE history with WMXXX weekend. I thank God or our Creator, Source, and anything you’d like to call it for keeping him around during all of that. It could have been so much worse with what happened based on where, how, who, and all those extra details. I have my questions always too but we need the good warriors, we ultimately do. 💙
With all three of these men, the Universe up in parts unknown delivered some sadness but enabled the good to happen first. Can you connect this to anyone or other situations in your life? It doesn’t have to be passed loved ones at all but maybe just perhaps some events that universally lined up in a certain way. I realize there is never a perfect time for anything as we have our lives to live.
Maybe you got that job raise just when a new baby arrived in your home. Perhaps even you had an outdoor event scheduled, had to change it but luckily your change resulted in a sunny day. Had it not been switched, a rainout would’ve happened. Look at situations like that warriors. We have to because up in parts unknown, they want us happy. Things won’t always work out as we plan them to but eventually we will see the good. Just be open to it.
Of course I didn’t want any of those men to pass away then and I went thru all the stages of grief like we all do. Whether or not you believe in these universal aspects, just know with the right perspective, you’ll understand parts unknown a little better. When looking back on all three, I know the Universe I believe in was helping on those days. My uncle, father-in-law, and Warrior don’t know each other but I DO know they are grateful having been around to experience a few more celebrated days. I love them all and know they love me always from parts unknown… 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
