I used to let this thought take over my mind up until a few months ago when I started a whole new chapter in my life. I began to see the world and this universe in completely different way. It’s been the most amazing experience ever and let me tell you right now - there’s no reason to fear Death.
If we are consciousness and not mind, it means only the organism dies. The you that you feel when you are at your highest is what will always live on — this self (consciousness) is within all life. When you die your story does not end - it continues. The person who died is just no longer here - but you never were that person, though. Instead, you’ve always been everything in existence, that person was only an expression of who you are. This is what “you” revert in to upon death – you become the universe once again. Death is only the termination of the channel of consciousness that was experiencing the life of the organism. We are all constantly being born and constantly dying.
We are all here for a reason at this point and time… yet so many of us in the world never wake up and realize how freaking amazing this place and universe is. They just let life pass them by. We have become brainwashed by the media and this country thrives on tragedy and seeing people fall apart and it naturally it makes us all be fearful of the time when it all ends for us. The reality of it all is— if you fulfill your life with the simple things that truly make you happy – and I am not talking about having insane amounts of money, having the latest brand clothes, cars and mansions or being “popular” and “liked” (usually for all the wrong reasons) – I’m talking about helping others, doing things you enjoy doing with people you love spending time with, exploring and understanding nature, meeting new people and experiencing new places – then at those final moments we are in this world we won’t regret a single minute being here. Our friends and our families will be at peace knowing that we did everything we could to make our time here worthwhile. They will know we were happy and lived the life we wanted to have. This is our purpose and from doing so we will have an impact to inspire our own children, friends, family to live the same kind of beautiful life we did. I hope this makes you think a lot and I hope anyone reading this gets inspired to try or learn something new today. Get off the couch, turn off the news and stop watching these “reality” TV shows and GO OUT AND EXPERIENCE LIFE ON YOUR OWN. Stop trying to view and live it through the lives of others!
