Those are two writers whose works I really, really love.
I did not know that Nathanael West and F. Scott Fitzgerald were such good friends when they lived (& worked) in Hollywood. I also did not know that, one week before they both died, they were at a dinner party together at Nathanael West’s new home. That means that one week later — the following Saturday — F. Scott Fitzgerald had died from a heart attack and Nathanael West (and his new wife) had died in a car wreck.
I find this kind of staggering, actually. That two of my favorite writers were such good friends who died in the same week after being at a dinner party together — their last.
Another interesting thing that both these writers share is that, at the time of their deaths, they were not successful. F. Scott Fitzgerald had fallen from popularity — or plunged, really. And Nathanael West never knew true success as a writer in his lifetime. When F. Scott died, you couldn’t even buy a copy of The Great Gatsby in any bookstore. Now it is considered a classic of 20th Century literature. And Nathanael West was basically not known at all — he had many screenwriting jobs and was friends with some well known screenwriters in Hollywood, but his novels were not known. I believe the book says he earned $1300 in his entire lifetime from book sales. Something like that.
In the Seth Material (by Jane Roberts), Seth maintains that once we leave the physical realm, we can still have an influence on the life we lived while we were physical; that we can still create a successful life or achieve a goal, etc., that those who are still physical can then experience as “real.”
The Abraham-Hicks teachings also maintain that whatever it is you are blocking in the physical realm, comes forth almost like a deluge once you leave the physical and are no longer blocking it.
So interesting, isn’t it??? Those two guys, those writer-friends who practically died on the "same day", off there in nonphysical reality together creating the lives they really wanted while they were here. Amazing.
