“We fear death – we fear life.”

Is death the end of us?

Many fear death since their physical body will be either interred or cremated. Both appear to be a very poor choice when the end of this plane of existence finally occurs to each of us, and it will come to each and every one of us since there is no escaping a change of existence no matter your wealth, your political or social rank, or your celebrity status.

Do you fear interment and cremation?

Many rationalize that interment is a cold, dark, and isolated place where they are reduced to a pile of dust by millions of microbes and then left in one place to the end of eternity itself.  By contrast, others rationalize that cremation will be extremely painful as their physical body is subjected to temperatures of around 1200°C and reduced to a small pile of grayish ash that once represented their physical existence.

Fear life? Fear death? 

In spite of the fact that we feel great fear that we will not escape this existence in this physical body, we also feel great fear every day of life that we will not be good enough, we will not be rich enough, and we will not be smart enough. Hence, we fear death – we fear life.

Energy can neither be created or destroyed

If we fear life, why do we fear death? Simply put, we believe that death is the end, a painful and frightening end to our earthly existence where we will be cruelly and unjustifiably taken from our loved ones or our loved possessions.

Does science hold our answer? 

While we harbor this great fear, we neglect that physicists have discovered energy can neither be created nor destroyed and this could be our most cherished of ideas in these modern times. Each and every one who shares this earthly existence is composed of energy, vibrational energy that was created when the Source created the universe in that glorious moment. Since energy cannot be created nor destroyed, why do we not realize that we cannot be destroyed either, we merely change the state which we presently inhabit to another state.

We are pure energy, and as such…

We leave our present physical body as pure energy and we should not feel remorse for that physical body which we must leave eventually. And some believe that when we return to the ultimate state of being, that is to be repatriated with the Source, it is the highest state of existence which we can achieve. And we fear this ending?

Fear is our worst enemy

If we fear death, why do we also fear life? As we go about our daily routines of living and making a living, we carry a great number of fears along with us. We fear that will lose our jobs, we will lose our loved ones, we will lose our health, and we will lose our wealth. Sadly, most never even entertain the idea that they will lose their most valuable connection, the connection to the Source.

Lose fear and gain life 

However, when we experience the joy of a deep connection with the Source, we lose our fear of living and making a living. We lose our ego, we lose our greed, we lose our envy, and we lose our jealousy. When these negatives no longer gnaw away at our positive energy, we must live a life of sheer enjoyment and wonder as each precious moment of our earthly existence passes before our very eyes. And we fear this living?

An ending is a beginning 

In our modern world, we fear death since we will be separated from our loved ones and our loved things. However, the changing of state is a natural end of your present physical existence, it is not the end of your existence it is merely the beginning of a new existence.

We are never separated from our lived ones…never 

We fear life since we will lose our loved ones and our loved things as well. However, changing from a negative state to a positive state of existence is a natural occurrence as we receive all that the Source wants us to receive and are entitled to receive. In the end, live with no fear of death and live with no fear of life.

Become nothing to become something.

5. To become nothingness is the door to truth. Nothingness is the means, the goal, and attainment. 

(Osho’s Fifth New Commandment)

Material goods do not make the person 

There are those amongst us who measure their self-worth, their self-importance,and their self-confidence by the size of the house they live in, the kind of car they drive, and the kind of watch they wear on their wrist. They unwisely pursue these materialistic goods in order to fill the void created when they have turned their back upon their spirituality as a pathway to their success in this life. As a result, they suffer spiritually, mentally, and physically for their selfish, self-centered thoughts, words, and actions.

header13Self-importance is irrelevant to the universe 

In their desire to be ‘someone’ above you, me, and others they chose to separate themselves by their material choices. They reason that if they live in a larger house than you do….they are worth more than you; if they own a more exclusive automobile than you do…they are better than you; and if they wear a more unique watch around their wrist than you do….then they are more important than you are.

We cannot be separated 

However, they fail to understand that the sun cannot be separated from the universe; the whale cannot be separated from the ocean; and a person cannot be separated from humanity.When the sun acts like it is not part of the universe, it begins to die; when the whale acts like is not part of the ocean, it begins to die; and when a person thinks there are not part of humanity, they begin to die. The sun is the universe; the whale is the ocean; the person is humanity. The lower can never subsume the higher….the higher can subsume the lower.

Guide your ship without ego 

The problem is…ego, and when ego gets in the way of realty, it forms barriers around, over, and between the soul, mind, and body.  In this state we are blinded and hence, fail to realize that ego creates illusions of power, fame, and celebrity. Yet, these are ephemeral as the water that runs in a stream to the sea, and so it is that living by ego is an illusion while living without ego is reality. Reality is truth…truth is reality.

In order to change our state, we must change our ways; as we change our ways, we change our destination; as we change our destination, we change our journey; as we change our journey, we change us. No longer are we guided by false ego, we are guided by nothingness. Truth is nothingness…nothingness is truth.

Truth is not an illusion 

Truth lies behind the door of nothingness; when that door is closed it is the unknown, as we open the door it is the known. You must become receptive to what you know is the truth and that truth travels in many disguises, however, not one of those is a material disguise. The disguises are yet another illusion, one that confuses your mind, closes your eyes, opens your mouth, numbs your senses.

Harmony is above and beyond ego

Abandoning ego manifests nothingness; nothingness lacks ego. As you become nothing, you become someone…a someone who brings joy to others the way an inanimate object is unable to fulfill.  A someone who is part of everything; there is no separation when we surround ourself in a state of cooperation – there is separation when we surround ourself in a state of competition.  A someone who lives in perfect harmony, oneness, single unity. Perfect unity that exists in nothingness, unity that is above ego.

Take the one true pathway in life 

Nothingness is the pathway, ego is not…nothingness is the goal, ego is not…and nothingness is the attainment of truth, and ego is not.
