Death as Life Eternal

How Do We Accept Death?

What is Death?

What is Death? Is it this horrific event in which we return to nothingness? Or is it a rebirth? I would submit to you that how you manage death is how your death is. Death for anyone who has watched it up close and personal is very difficult as you watch your loved one slip away but you also notice they become free from metaphysical entanglements. Quite literally they return to a child like state as they gravitate closer and closer to death. They are no longer bound to the realities of existence as we are. For a person who is dying nothing is relevant as they leave us.

And as sad as it is to watch a person die before your eyes you also witness they are being freed from bonds of existence. They no longer need close. They no longer care for money. Food is't even important and vanity is stripped. All temporal needs flee. Quite literally they are leaving. And they are freed from every hardship existence has to offer. So as sad as it is to lose our loved ones they are finally free from all earthly bonds and this must be celebrated. I realize that this may offend many of you as it is an uncommon way of looking at death but it is still worth considering that in death we are ultimately free from all forms of slavery.

And Death is very simple it is just a matter of letting go to what is an unnatural existence to what will be a trans formative natural existence. Because Death whether we like it or not is normal. Death is an awakening of consciousness and each and everyday we exist we awaken a bit more.

Arguably, life is a progression of Death and Birth and Death are two separate but similar forms of consciousness. Through life we seek this form of consciousness and it is simply up to us to acceptance our awakening. And it is good for us to awaken finally because during our lives we struggle so hard to gain knowledge and be conscious when we are bound to a form which is incapable of comprehending the incomprehensible. Only during the awakening of death to we have a glimpse into the incomprehensible as we reunite with the infinte.

How Do Accpet Death?

Acceptance is Preprogrammed in our Psyche

I am not a Buddhist and I know very little about the religion but I do believe we are aleady prepared for our journey of birth, life, death and rebirth. I think that is in our minds each and everyday. I don't particularly prescribe to any religion but I do believe their is balance in our universe and with Death comes Life. When we enter Death we enter Life Eternal.

As for meeting death be prepared each day to meet death and you will live free your entire life.

JT, quite a metaphysical moment for me this early in the morning, the article was insightful and got the juices flowing but gave me no where to go. Maybe I should go back to bed. Interesting,

Peter

Hi Peter,

I was feeling a bit philosophical on the eve of 9/11 and given I have just witnessed death it is an observation. So yes, Peter go back to sleep your are not to be awakened yet.

I know this is very different than anything else I have written.
