Immortality is an ancient dream that has obsessed many of the finest minds in history. Fables of the Fountain of Youth or the Philosopher"s Stone have hinted that we may somehow transform ourselves into immortal, eternally youthful beings. |
But, what if we are already immortals? What if we need only to die to learn about this fantastic truth about our lives?
Many people fear death. Whether we fear the complete cessation of our lives or whether we fear eternal punishments for our sins, death remains a mystery many people may prefer to put off forever.
The evidence for death has been written in blood and has been carved into tombstones; it may seem very difficult to deny the reality of death. However, what if death is not real?
We like to invert the familiar question and instead ask, "Is there death after life?"
Our answer to this question has been a resounding NO.
Death is only a transition from one life to another. There is always more life beyond the doors of death. Even if we seek refuge in death, we are denied; we must return to life. Our lives are inescapable by any means, including death.
We may see plants, animals, and people perish, but this does not end their lives. The scope of our lives has always been far greater than the extent of any single incarnation we may live in. Each incarnation is an experience that includes an infinite array of iterations of the mortal bodies we wear, all distributed in alternate realities, in parallel universes, such that, ordinarily, we are unaware of experiencing more than a single instance of our lives in any given world.
Our conscious awareness may seem limited to the immediate worlds around us, however, we are always extended across an infinite array of existences, some of which so closely resemble this existence we experience now that we cannot distinguish any differences between them.
While we may always die in any iteration of any incarnation of our lives, we will always continue to live in other iterations of our incarnations. When we die we simply migrate our conscious awareness to the nearest similar universes and carry on experiencing our lives as if we had not died.
We are usually incapable of remembering our deaths when we have recently died in alternate universes. The continuity of our lives seems seamless.
To those who witness our death we seem to be dead. Our flesh no longer moves to the urges of our nerves and wills. Our families and friends are abandoned, we leave them with only our empty shells to mourn us and to grieve for our loss.
Yet, when we die, we still carry on, in virtually identical universes where we have not yet died. Our families and friends remain intact in these universes, warm comforting presences, people whom we may continue to know and to love.
Our lives are not the products of our biological beings. Our biological beings are the products of our lives. We recreate new bodies in new universes and carry on living as if nothing had ever happened to interrupt our lives when we die.
Our bodies are the products of energies directed by our minds. Our minds continue to function regardless of the organic states of the bodies our minds create. If we are brain impaired in any way our minds are not impaired, only our abilities to use our bodies as interfaces to share our lives with the lives of other people may be impaired by any brain injury, disease, dysfunction, or death.
Comatose patients and brain-dead patients are still mentally functioning; they simply no longer have the means of communicating their presence or the state of their wellbeing by animating their bodies. This is why, in the case of comatose patients it can be very important to continue to speak to them, to appeal to them to return to us. They have the power to respond and the potential to return, and must simply become motivated enough to discover how to do so.
When we die, we may hear our loved ones calling for us to return. We may hear the prayers of our families pleading with God to restore us to their loving embraces. We may choose to return to them during this stage of death when we are between lives.
When they are privileged to return to life, the tales told by those who report their near-death experiences are all remarkably similar, particularly when we filter out their cultural biases.
Those reporting near-death experiences describe being able to see their bodies and the people immediately around them. They report hearing the voices of these people as if from a greater distance.
People reporting near-death experiences describe a point of view that is typically somewhat elevated, as if they were floating near the ceilings of the rooms they have died in, or somewhat above the heads of the people they were with.
This sensation of floating is reported consistently, along with a sense of peace and wellbeing that surpasses anything they had ever known in life.
Death is peaceful, but the peace does not last. We are always drawn to return to our lives, always, even if only by the behest of others.
We live our lives with purpose. Along the way, we may acquire new purposes to replace those purposes that we have fulfilled or perhaps abandoned. So long as any sense of purpose remains, we are always drawn back into those lives we have at times departed from, even if our only purpose is to ease the trembling, suffering hearts of those who love us and cannot bear to lose us from their lives.
When we die, we remember ourselves more completely.
Another common experience of those reporting near-death experiences has been to see their entire lives flash before their eyes. Every succulent or scathing moment of their lives is experienced again in its entirety, along with all the thoughts and emotions associated with those moments.
When we die we are able to see how well we lived our lives, we are able to understand our lives from the point of view of our higher consciousness. We are able to forgive ourselves and all others we have known in our lives for any and all wrongs done, whether these were wrongs committed either by accident, by ignorance, or by malice.
When we die, we accept our lives with all of our faults and we learn to love ourselves more deeply. When we die, we heal deep wounds that may have plagued us for a lifetime, and then we choose. We must choose to return to the life in which we have just died, or to return to some other incarnation of our lives to carry on.
Some people view the world as a place of torment. They see our cycles of birth, death, and reincarnation as a sort of prison, a trap that they may fervently wish to escape. Many people believe that we must learn to evolve, to become spiritually perfected to escape our cycles of rebirth.
However, we already exist in eternal states beyond the cycles of life and death. It is only in our living moments that we are too often blinded to this higher state of our existence upon which all of our incarnate lifetimes depend.
We cannot escape to a state in which we already exist. We simply need to learn to reconnect to that state while living as incarnate beings to understand this and to find eternal peace in every waking moment of our lives.
Death only provides us with transcendental experiences that help us to learn to reconnect to our higher consciousness and our eternal beings before we return to our more mundane incarnate lives to carry on once more.
Knowledge of your immortality bestows responsibility. Recklessly killing yourself or anyone else still carries a deep spiritual significance that typically causes you to make your own life considerably more miserable as a consequence.
While death is only a transitory, ephemeral experience, it can still be harmful to die. The pain of dying is immense, even when no physical pain is present, because we experience not only our own emotional pains of loss as we depart from our familiar loved ones, but we also experience the heart-felt pains of all of our loved ones who feel hurt by our departures.
In addition, death is often a statement of extreme dissatisfaction with our lives; those who deliberately kill themselves are saying they renounce their lives along with everyone and everything in their lives. Consequently, people who kill themselves typically discover themselves in extremely reduced circumstances after they return to their lives. They may lose all of their worldly possessions; more importantly, they may often damage or lose their relationships with the people they have loved as well.
Suicide can be a very harmful experience, even for immortals. If you feel inclined to kill yourself to test the truth of what we say, then we strongly advise you not to do this. There are better ways to test the validity of our assertions.
To test the truth of what we claim, we advise you to ask yourselves to remember those occasions when you have already died, either in this lifetime, or in past lives. Ask before bedtime. Ask for your dreams and memories to return to you to help you to convince yourselves of the truth that we have just shared with you.
You have already died many, many times. Now it is time to remember this. Now it is time to remember you have always been immortal.
