Daily Inspiration: September 9. What is Death?
The finality of death is an illusionary concept perpetuated by the ego, in order to make you believe that you are separate from an eternal God. The ego would say to you something like: How could someone who lives but a blink of an eye in time, and The Eternal, possibly be One? This way the ego makes you believe that it is actually more logical for you to think of yourself as a part of the ego instead of a part of God. As always, your truth is the complete opposite of who the ego tries to convince you that you are. Your truth, your eternal loving essence, is the complete opposite of the idea of death. Your Source is everlasting life, and you are the creation of Everlasting Life. You are everlasting life, the complete opposite of what death could ever be. Recall That Which Is All can have no opposite, and thus the idea of death, and all it represents, is simply a made up concept that we have been programmed to believe as real. Fairy tales were made to keep us distracted and out of alignment with, our true nature. If a fairy tale like death, begins to engulf us in pain and sorrow, let us recall, that we are experiencing it in this manner, simply because, this is how we have been taught to react to it. It is up to those who are awakening to their truth and eternal nature, to remind others of the peace and understanding that is available to them, when they choose to align with the eternal instead of the temporal, the real instead of the false. If your believe in the idea of death is not serving you, not bringing you or aligned with peace and understanding, then why are you choosing to continue to support it? Let us today end our support of false concepts. That is all death is, a false concept, that we now know, no longer serve us. We, as children of The Eternal, are forever worthy of the peace of mind, joy and understanding, that you receive from being in conscious alignment with your Creator.
The idea of death, if we hadn’t been programmed to believe that it was so sad and tragic, would be laughable. Now, please do note, that I am in no way trying to minimize the pain, sorrow and suffering, that so many go through because they have been taught to believe in the ego’s fairy tale of death as real and final. I am also in no way telling you not to feel whatever it is you think you need to feel. What I am trying to do is remind you, that all of the ego’s fairy tales, including that of death, are fictional in nature. If you were reading a fairy tale to your child, and it was making him or her too scared or sad, would you not just close the book and pick up another one, or just try to explain to them that it’s not real? That’s what I do with myself, when I’m watching a well made horror movie, if I start really buying into it and getting a bit too scared, I don’t just scream, get up and run from the theatre, I just take a deep breath and remind myself that the story is not real, which helps me appreciate the art form, but at the same time, not get so involved in its story. By doing so, I can still get to appreciate and participate in the story, without getting so involved in it. That is all death is, a story of fiction, sometimes a sad story of fiction, something a horror story of fiction, and sometimes a tragic story of fiction. Death, is always just a fiction story, because in truth all the characters in it, being eternal, can never cease to exist. Today, anytime that you feel yourself being pulled too deeply into one of the ego’s stories, simply realize what is occurring, that you are buying into a fictional tale as non-fiction. Then, bring yourself back into reality, and into alignment with Love’s expressions. This way you can become an example to others, that their story can always, be experienced in a more peaceful and loving manner.
Today, remember this: Death is not eternal, you are. You were, long before you chose to be in a body, and you will still be, long after you choose to leave it. You have free will, thus the illusion of death can be believed and defended as real, but that which is eternal, that which is Eternities’ creation, which is truly forever you, can never, nor will ever, die. There are many ways to experience that death is not real. One of the most useful is to have an Out-of-Body experience (OBE). There are numerous books, YouTube videos, and websites dedicate to this practice. I recommend it simply because it shows you, through direct experience, what a laughable idea death, and you being your body, is. You are not, nor have ever in truth been, your body. The body that you are using is very simply a communication device for the soul. It is a communication device that we use for a while, but once it has served its purpose, we discard. Speak to anyone who has ever been separate form, or separated themselves from their body, and they will all tell you the same basic thing: that it is you, your eternal essence that is real, not the body, and especially not the body without you in it. If you truly desire to have a OBE it may take you a few weeks, or even months to have one, and the process itself is not free from illusionary fear, but it is worth it if you are someone who needs a direct experience to know that something is truly real. Now, I am not saying to focus on having a OBE or not, or that a OBE is an important experience to have in order to remember your Oneness with God, it is simply a tool that is available to you, that I have on occasion used and found helpful.
Today, let us practice consciously supporting our eternal loving essence as true, and the body as simply a communication device for the soul. Love is who we are, and so anytime that we are supporting our true nature or any of the numerous expressions of Love, we are in essence aligning with, supporting and reinforcing, the understanding of our eternal nature. Equally so, anytime that we find ourselves supporting anything that seems to be in opposition to Love, we are supporting the temporal in us over our eternal essence, the story we have been programmed by the ego to believe instead of our true nature. Love, and its expressions such as those of peace and joy, are both symbols of our alignment with the eternal. Their “opposites,” say, anxiousness and anger, are both symbols of our belief in the ego’s mindset, in the idea of death. Everlasting life or the idea of death, in each and every moment, the one we choose to value most, will be the one that we will end up experiencing. Today, let us not blame our experiences for how we feel, but instead learn how to align them, with the symbols of everlasting life.
