People seem so occupied with finding cures for countless different diseases, all of which are symptoms of dying. Why not seek the cure for death itself?
There is no death. The idea that anyone can be put out of their misery is an illusion. The experience of pain and suffering without wisdom is what gives power to such an insane idea.
In fact, the majority of human relationships to religion and spirituality are based on the concept that this life is miserable, and that if they are obedient to certain precepts their misery will be magically removed by a higher power.
I tell the infallible truth when I say that this way of perceiving life causes misery to multiply, and until the root insanity is recognized there can be no real relief from pain and suffering.
The only way out is through the sensations as they arrive and depart within the physical structure. The one who’s willing to give up all thought and turn attention to the body’s sensations will receive revelations as to the root cause of all forms of misery.
In every instance that attention is turned from mind to sensation wisdom develops within, and any wisdom that’s developed can never be destroyed…not even through physical death.
I invite everyone to drop ideas of “my pain”, “my disease”, “my anger”, and simply embrace the feeling sensation that these guests bring to your awareness. I promise that they bear gifts of infinite wisdom if you will only stop permitting the mind to identify them as yours while trying to push them away.
May the all consuming fire of ultimate peace, comfort and happiness prevail in every being until the roots of pain and suffering are completely disintegrated.
I don’t mind death. Every body that is born will also pass away.
But I will not tolerate being hypnotized by fear because every time I succumb to such hypnosis, misery is multiplied for myself and for my people.
What do I mean by not tolerating fear? It means that when fear arises, I turn as much of my attention as possible to my physical structure so that I can experience what’s being sensed by the unconscious mind.
In this way, my energy of attention cannot be used to defile myself and my world by propagating fear… and the root of fear naturally gets burned up through my conscious awareness of its sensation.
In addition, I remain open to whatever is coming because I’m aware that I can respond instead of habitually react even when faced with fearful circumstances. As such, I don’t pray for protection or for good things to be given to me…as to me that’s just fear of being available for whatever experience arises.
For example, when a recent hurricane came to the place where I live, I was aware that my body could pass away, especially when I heard trees cracking and falling and received news that a nearby power plant was “uncontrollably releasing toxic hydrogen sulfide”.
Immediately upon hearing the news, I directed my attention to my physical sensations and breathing while witnessing fear, and my mind came to accept physical death as a possibility. Every time fear arose in me, I approached it in the same way.
I was able to respond to my children’s concerns and to the concerns of friends who were worried about our safety without going into a pattern of fear with them. I considered evacuating, but it was obvious without leaving our home that we wouldn’t make it out because of fallen trees.
I noticed that the winds were blowing strongly in the direction of the power plant, and I trusted that our bodies would be kept safe by the wind if that was meant to be. Moreover, I also trusted that our bodies would fall ill or even die if that was meant to be.
Instead of being scared of death, my child mind was able to enjoy the events as they unfolded…because no matter what happened I was there and it was clear that not even physical death could disturb the peaceful presence that I am.
(Incidentally, nobody in my home had any symptoms of poisoning, our home and gardens are in great shape, and all of us are enjoying vibrant health to date.)
