“Death is not the end. Death can never be the end. Death is the road. Life is the traveler. The Soul is the Guide” ~ Sri Chinmoy
We fear death because we don't know it. But I suspect it is a blessed state, free from the illusion of mortality, where the dead rejoice in sublime reunion with the Divine source who created them. So to kill loses its ghastly power, as the temporal world is revealed to be the only hell and the departed come to know it as a dream from which they have finally been awakened.
“I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it.” ~ Mark Twain
We are all dreaming this dream within the One mind. The One mind is awake, aware and fully present. There is no reality outside of the One mind and this reality is good, pure, whole Love. Our seeming human reality is false, and as we sleep in this dream, we believe ourselves to be separate, vulnerable and limited. Our individual experience within the collective dream depends upon our thoughts, emotions, actions and beliefs. Through these channels our dream life is formulated. Let us cease to fill this dream life with fear.
“Remembering that you are going to die one day is the best way to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. Follow your heart.” ~ Steve Jobs
We may experience loss or gain, lack or plenty, joy or despair, comedy or tragedy, all projections of our own personal vibrations and how they interact with the collective energy field. Both human and elemental forces will be shaped by each individual consciousness as it interfaces with mass thought. We experience this as our life, yet despite its apparent solidity, it is a dream and illusory. It is false, shifting and malleable. This dream is but a lesson to awaken us, to enlighten our minds to their true place of origin.
“After your death you will be what you were before your birth.” ~ Arthur Schopenhauer
The essence mind, which is the mind of God, is not dreaming. God is fully awake. God does not die, suffer, lack or in any way know discord. There are no storms, murders, devastations, fears, worries or anxieties in the One mind - the One true life. These are all human conceptions within a false, substance-less dream. In reality we are eternal beings, delighting in infinite life, glorious being with no beginning nor end. We are at peace, in joy and free. Nothing can harm us in reality. Each and every one of us is protected and held in the embrace of the great One love.
“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.” ~ Mark Twain
Bless all continuously, turn away from all appearances and embrace the Real life for your attainment of Truth. Look only to the Highest. Face your gaze upwards and see that the fields are already ripe with harvest. The day has already come for your salvation. Now is the moment of freedom from pain, sorrow, injustice, destruction and death. This release can only come presently. It exists nowhere else but here, now. You must claim it, despite all seeming evidence to the contrary. Wake up. Wake up. It is time to wake up. Come out of your dream. See the face of God and be free. Die before you die.
“Death – the last sleep? No, it is the final awakening.” ~ Walter Scott
