View Full Version : "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow." Steve Jobs' last words, with his family surrounding him

Here (the final paragraph) is the most thought-provoking sentence I've read for a long time.

http://edition.cnn.com/2011/10/30/us/steve-jobs-eulogy/index.html

Full article:



The last minutes in the life of Steve Jobs were still filled by the epiphanies and moments of inspiration that fed his inventor's mind, according to an intimate portrait provided by Jobs' sister in a eulogy published Sunday in The New York Times. Mona Simpson's eulogy -- originally read during Jobs' memorial service on October 16 -- is a sister's celebration of a brother she knew only later in life, and a lament of losing a best friend. It weaves in words what she believed were the foundations of Jobs' genius: his humility and hard work, his love of learning and his family.

"I want to tell you a few things I learned from Steve, during three distinct periods, over the 27 years I knew him," said Simpson in her eulogy. "They're not periods of years, but of states of being. His full life. His illness. His dying."

Simpson, a writer, and Steve Jobs did not meet until they were adults. Their early family history was fragmented, but set the stage for what later became a deep-rooted friendship between two estranged siblings. After Steve Jobs' birth, his parents gave him up for adoption. Simpson was born later, and the parents subsequently divorced.

One day, Simpson said in her eulogy, when she was living in New York and writing her first novel, a lawyer gave her a call to inform her that her "long-lost brother" was rich and famous and wanted to contact her.

"Because we were poor and because I knew my father had emigrated from Syria, I imagined he looked like (actor) Omar Sharif," said Simpson.

"The lawyer refused to tell me my brother's name and my colleagues started a betting pool," said Simpson. "The leading candidate: John Travolta. I secretly hoped for a literary descendant of Henry James -- someone more talented than I, someone brilliant without trying," she said.

The man who came to meet her -- her brother -- was Steve Jobs.

"Even as a feminist, my whole life I'd been waiting for a man to love, who could love me. For decades, I'd thought that man would be my father. When I was 25, I met that man and he was my brother," Simpson said in the eulogy as published in the Times.

"When I met Steve, he was a guy my age in jeans, Arab- or Jewish-looking and handsomer than Omar Sharif," she said.

When they first met, Simpson said, she told her brother she had considered buying a computer but had waited.

"Steve told me it was a good thing I'd waited. He said he was going to make something that was going to be insanely beautiful," she said.

Jobs' life was not always a smooth ride, his sister said in her eulogy. He skidded through volatile times with Apple executives and eventually was ousted from the company he had founded.

"When he got kicked out of Apple, things were painful. He told me about a dinner at which 500 Silicon Valley leaders met the then-sitting president. Steve hadn't been invited," said Simpson.

"He was hurt but he still went to work ... Every single day," she said.

Simpson said Jobs was sentimental and he spent much time talking about love. He found a partner in life, Laurene Powell, whom he married in 1991, his sister said.

"His abiding love for Laurene sustained him. He believed that love happened all the time, everywhere," she wrote.

When Jobs' struggle with pancreatic cancer took a turn for the worse, he called his sister and asked her to hurry to his Palo Alto, California, home.

His tone, Simpson said, was "like someone whose luggage was already strapped onto the vehicle, who was already on the beginning of his journey, even as he was sorry, truly deeply sorry, to be leaving us."

Even as he struggled physically in his last hours, his sister said, "there was also sweet Steve's capacity for wonderment, the artist's belief in the ideal, the still more beautiful later."

"He was working at this, too. Death didn't happen to Steve, he achieved it."

With his family surrounding him, Simpson said, Jobs' last words were: "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."

What a beautiful eulogy from his sister.
If I read the original transcript correctly, his sister said that as he was nearing death he looked at each member of his family and then finally his wife with LOVE, he then said "Oh wow, Oh wow, Oh wow" as his final words on this Earth, he did this apparently as he looked beyond his wife, over her shoulder into the distance.
I like to think that he was experiencing bliss at that time and that he saw his guide or someone he was pleased to see from the other side who had come to escort him home.................
RIP Steve

I was meditating with the intent of seeing my beloved Grandfather who was a special fellow with a magical smile I loved very dearly. I focused my being into a Generator Quartz stone and took off in pursuit of the level were he now resides. The following was recorded after several hours of visiting. To me after returning it seemed I was gone for a few minutes, or from another perspective, I was gone 'forever'. I did not want to come back, that I remember. But with a tear in my eye I knew I must. This was about 40 years ago... ... The Visit:





The Reality Of Truth
by, Eugene Fields

The sum of you must come to understand,
that the value that you place,
on what you believe
is your reality,
is causing the separation, and fear
that one experiences on a regular basis.
One must finally come to terms with the fact,
that what one experiences, on a moment by moment basis,
is in fact an illusion the Dream.
This precious reality which we cling to,
and rightly so,
is only a very small portion of activity
which is going on in this very space
that we as physical beings inhabit.
A"Course In Miracles" describes a
'Wholly Instant' as:
Any time that the individual
transcends his immediate reality and
catches a glimpse of the greater truth.
The primary reality.
I have glimpsed the Greater Reality which we inhabit.
I was meditating and I became aware of light.
A glorious light of unparalleled purity and unending power.
A shaft of light which appeared,
and I entered it
after a period of mandalas of 'energy patterns'
like a kaleidoscope,
however these patterns,
were much more complex in a crystalline structure.
I believe I was viewing at the subatomic stage
as to me these were recognizable as structures for matter.
They varied in color and complexity,
but were an obvious
language of some sort.
Much intelligence resided there, but this was only a precursor,
an introduction to a very special journey.
One made by countless people
from the beginning of life in our universe.
Upon the ending of the patterns
the shaft of light is before me.
It is in the distance and the size of a toothpick.
Rather quickly now,
it is I who am the size of the toothpick,
and the shaft looms before me.
I simply think Enter
and I'm inside now,
like a tiny air bubble in the ocean I am flying to the top.
It took a couple of minutes to get there.
Wow! Woo! I look around the top of this tube.
I mean, It Is, Immense!
The whole earth would be a BB in this tube
All around the top
there is what looks like clouds of white water at Niagara Falls and the water is pouring over the sides exactly like the falls. Wow!
As I get my bearings
and glance around the entire circumference of the perimeter
I realize I feel an affinity,
to an area over there somewhere.
As I think about it,
I'm moving there.
Woo! that's not white water,
there are millions of little specks,
all swarming or kind of pulsating all together
and yet all at different times.
Oh, my God those aren't little specks
those are my people, my loved ones from forever
they are coming towards me.
A tear escapes as I feel their love
I can't believe it's really them.
"Poppy? Is that you?"
"Of course my darling It's me,
"Everyone is here to see you.
We are very surprised to see you because you are awake.
"My boychuckal I want to give you a squeeze !"
We're so proud of you.
You are the first of our line to come here when you were awake.
This is a major event for us because,
this must happen for many more
that the world will change,
and we will enter our rightful heritage in
the fabric of life, You see you are here too.
And I met my own light,
who was me.
We were connected by a thread of light.
You see all the dots of light who had physical presence,
on the earth are connected to their light body
by these threads.
That's what was pouring over the side of the tube.
All of humanity is waiting for the ascension of mankind,
at the top of that tube
in order to welcome and greet,
those souls,who are passing over
on the off chance,
that some intrepid traveler such as me,
might make the journey and glimpse
The Greater Reality.
As I gained composure
I said "If you're poppy show me your face"
My poppy's face appeared first
as last I saw him and then younger.
He was smiling his special smile
then many showed me their faces.
My dad’s mom and dad,
Aunt Resnick and faces I could barely place.
One item that was certain however,
was the intensity of love I experienced from all.
I then showed my face,
and realized that I had to think about it to do it.
Then I understood.
I thanked everyone but told them to please stop,
as it took concentration of thought to materialize a face.
I felt bad and they said "don't be silly it was fun.
Good practice to be sure.
I looked around and saw,
what looked like a physical representation of the earth
streets, buildings,horizons,
the whole bit, you Know?
Except it looked like a negative.
The entire background was a deep blue and purple violet.
Almost black, but the outlines were of things,
looking like tubes of blue white light.
I looked back to my group and said,
'I'm only experiencing a little bit of this place?',
and they were glad I understood.
When they told me of the colors and smells
of this wondrous place, which never changes
and which I could not even imagine,
the beauty and bliss in its totality.
I understood and another tear escaped my eye,
at the realization of the utter scope of this thing, 'existence'
They went on to explain,
“that as I was still actually physical, this was all I could experience”.
They told me everyone comes here when sleeping,
but very few had made my journey awake.
I was very pleased to have found "Home" and
I knew in the twinkling of an instant that
This was the ‘Primary Reality’
and my physical body was in the dream.
Even my physical body was actually trapped light.
A holographic representation of a thought.
A movie as it were.
After experiencing this
I realized that I would not and could not ever
be who I was from before that moment.
That moment
of realization.
When all truth is known.
And all illusions pale,
next to the truth of the totality of His love.
I looked up and saw the,
White Light of Creation.
Some call it God.
It matters not by which name you call it.
There it is. One for all life all eternity.
It simply waits for your decision to return.
They told me I could go there when I wanted to
Then I understood that all that is asked of life is that one love.
To love, the one prerequisite to growth.
And that truth be acknowledged and faced.
Change is not a requirement,
It is the only constant in this physical existence
Any action which would ever bring you
separation,
fear or pain or
discomfort would never be required.
Though you may feel,
that you must do something to be truthful,
and this action brings pain, ignore this.
understand that your pain arrives from some
expectation you had which was not fulfilled
expect nothing,
you are safe,
you are safe !
This Reality is an illusion.
God is the dancer, and we are the dance.
Lose the attachment to the moment
and realize the Greater Reality going on forever.
That you are eternally loved.
That there is nothing you could do
that would in any way would detract
from the completeness of the love of creation,
eternity, you all possess.
To realize that is the way to healing and a conflict free life.
If at any time anything takes hold
which is unpleasant and brings, anger or fear, remember
your True place of existence.
We are but experiencing a ‘moment’
already occurred in the perspective of God.
All the lifetimes you ever had,
or could ever have, in His eye,have already happened.
You are divine and victorious.
The only thing you are doing in the present
moment of physical life is deciding
how long a movie you make.
The length depending on,
the quality of actions taken while physical.
The only value coded of or to any action,
being that the motivation sought, was love.
And that it not be at anyone's expense.
That at all junctures of decision,
the betterment of the whole was at heart.
These are the valuable things,
one may do in life,
not earnings,
not things you amassed,
no possession ever imagined,
ever meant anything to 'Creation'.
It was rather the the quality of the thoughts,
at the time all that was going on
that have a lasting meaning,
and so how you will judge yourself,
is on that's basis alone.
One, ought live under the premise,
that “One should not whisper anything in confidence
that one, should find offensive if shouted loud enough
for the world to hear”.
Because, you see, by your hearing it yourself
the world has heard it.
All is known.
There is 100% full disclosure
for all who wish the frankness of the truth.
For truth is known.
There is no secret.
There was never any need.
You have the love and total acceptance of 'The Creation'.
There is no punishment and no hell,
save what you put yourself through,
with useless fear and guilt.
God sees no sin.
In the presence of God,
sin does not exist.
One must choose,
as to his path, at the arrival here, after death
as to what one will do next.
For if there is any sense of regret or unfinished business,
then one usually decides to,
go back the earth school.
To further the accumulated and cataloged experiences,
in order to have a shining beacon,
to bring back to The Creation.
As he brings back
his lives, on his back,
in a sack ,as it were
to add to 'The Creation's' knowledge and light.
As we in spirit are connected,
to our physical earth body,
by this cord of light,
so, we are in turn,
are all connected to God,
Each one of us,
whether we believe it or not.
All saved,
there very own
spot
with millions,
of holographic threads,of light
forming geometric patterns
through timeless creation,
from the Creator, be it God,or It, or Himself
The proportions of this,
truly leave one in awe,
of the beauty,
the safety,
the end of fear,
and the end,
of the need to control.
Total release to God.
Love, has given us all absolution.
Upon realizing this
the outer circumstances
of your life
will lighten perceptibly.
Thus by aligning thought
with awareness of 'The Creation's' love
A life free of pain and,
an end to suffering.
Trust the love.
Be healed.

You've mentioned this before. Timeing is everything. Quack-quack, its just not your time to go. And when it is, I believe you will meet death in the same vibrant way you have lead your life. The words, "Seek and ye shall find, ask and ye shall recieve." (when the time is right) aren't just pretty words.

I thank you for sharing these words about a exceptional man who sadly I never knew, why is it we only hear of interesting people when some one writes their eulogy. I really have spent all my life fighting to find my place, it was not a hill I climbed but a huge mountain, the view is worth the struggle though and I hope to have found others to share it, again thank you Bill

He knew death was approaching. He knew the exact moment was almost there. Outside it was dusk, that beautiful time of the day when the whole of life seems to hover between heaven and earth. He could see the falling leaves from his bed. He lay in anticipation. It was coming. He saw a dot. It came closer. He focussed on the dot...he allowed himself to slowly let go...he felt empty...nothing...bliss...his body dissolved into an ethereal pirouette.

He rose and never looked back.

Apparently the Wall St Journal mentioned this as well, and ended with Thomas Edison's last words -- something like "It's beautiful over there." I suppose if we asked everyone here, many of us would have stories of relatives who spoke about what they saw before they left 3D for good.

While there is plenty left to experience in the here and now, I can't help but wonder and feel a little jealous at what Mr Jobs was witness to at that moment.

This story reminded me of a post from a few months back about an OOBE and the accompanying music video.. It went a little something like this...

You've lost me with this one Bill... Are you surprised at this small piece of evidence of life after death?

Am I supposed to respect this man?

I am sure the return to our creator will be a beautiful experience for all of us...

We are talking about Steve Jobs of Apple fame right? The man who brought us the i-phone?

Its nice that Steve sounds like he had a joyful transition to the the other side... but reflecting on his accomplishments in life doesn't exactly give me a warm fuzzy feeling.

I agree that the adoration of Steve Jobs as a human being seems grossly misplaced. I lived and worked in The Valley in the mid to late '80's- I do not think he drank often, or deeply, from the milk of human kindness.......why is it that we assume certain traits such as creativity or even financial acumen imply character, wisdom, compassion or insight? (Not too many people are kicked out of their own company, by the way, and his return was a reign of high school like drama of being in or out). Apple products are wonderful technology, but they are neutral as a moral contribution.

Lily - you mentioned a dot - can you expand more on that for me please.
This is VERY interesting to me because often when I meditate I see a bright bright dot in the distance, far far away and I always want it to come closer to me and I try to focus on it but so far it hasn't come close :(

Hey Star1111,

Thanks for asking! When I read of what Steve Jobs said before he passed, it reminded me of a passage I wrote in my own book, 'Kismet x Numbers', (not published, just a manuscript synopsis stashed away in my bottom drawer for the last 10 years).

The passage I wrote related to the main character in my book (in real life, my GGG Grandfather) on his passing in 1866. I tried to imagine what his death experience would be like. Given the back story of the book (you'd have to read it), I wrote that paragraph you see above.

In addition, my own father passed away over 11 years ago. I wrote about that also, in which I connected a 'thought' to what I wrote in the passage above. (Hope that makes sense, lol)

I do not meditate, wish I could, but my brother is a Zen Master, therefore I have drawn on our relationship and what I know of meditation.

Interesting that you see a dot in YOUR meditation.

In short, Zen like?

I just imagined what it would be like to die as an old man of 86.

Cheers,
Lily:eyebrows:

PS: If that damned dot doesn't come closer to you, I'd say you have many years left on this planet, lol...

Hello Dig


Death is simply a door into the next room. Go Steve our hearts are with you!

Your words reminded me of the following quote by Henry Scott Holland:

"DEATH is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I, and you are you. Whatever we were to each other that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was, let it be spoken with effect, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was; there is unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just round the corner.All is well."

Regarding the dot, I think, well have a very strong feeling actually that it is either my spirit guide(s) or someone on the 'other side' trying to let me know that they are with me............. I know they are with me and that is a comforting feeling. However, I would LOVE them to come closer, I know they are beautiful, but maybe its not the right time yet.

They can come and get me anytime they like, I'm so ready.............. I don't really want to spend too much more time on this planet, but I know I will :bored: I have to remain here for other people and I guess when they go home I will be allowed to go too :bounce:

Not aufait with Zen, so not sure what you mean :)

Much LOVE to you

"Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."

Considering that DMT is released in the brain at the time of death - and also during childbirth - I can appreciate the exclamation.

Hehe! Yep, same here!

It would be a very interesting study to compare the last words of each and every deceased person, an immense project though.
Unfortunately not everyone would approve of being documented at their last breaths, not either does every dying person receive the luxurious benefit of being documented, sometimes due to lack of popularity, interest or attention. Steve Jobs last words sure are a gift to the rest of us who are still alive and should be considered a reminder and a wake up call, in a way.

I wish he could tell us, I wish they all could -

I can't help but cry,
without knowing.
Are they tears of joy,
or emptiness?

Thank you Bill for posting this ~

Interesting to see that everyone assumes his words were an expression of something wonderful, because that's what we want it to be. It could just have been that he rialised it was the end and he was dying, as in oh wow this is it. Or maybe he suddenly came up with the answer to something he was inventing or working on and rialised he would never get to finish it. I have heard said before that each and every one of us will know for certain when it is our time
