THERE IS NO DEATH
The process we call death is simply the bringer of change: you are alive and conscious one moment on the physical plane and the next moment you have transitioned to another plane and are alive and actively conscious there; you are released from the limitations of your physical body; your time in the physical plane school of earth ends. You enter into a life of great freedom and love. There is no death. LIFE IS.
I heard unusual sounds. Some were unpleasant: buzzing, roaring, banging. Some were pleasant: tinkling wind chimes or majestic, unearthly anthems, “living sounds, like the richest, most complex, most beautiful music you’ve ever heard.” Then I was pulled very rapidly through a dark space...a tunnel, a funnel, or a valley...into a bright, vivid green landscape.
“I could see and hear, but not with physical eyes or ears, for I didn’t have them.”
“I just couldn’t understand how I could see things so far away; I could look anywhere and everywhere, I could zoom in or zoom out on anything I wanted to see.
“Up there seeing and hearing were not separate... I could hear the visual beauty of the silvery bodies of the scintillating (angelic) beings above, and I could see the surging, joyful perfection of what they sang. It seemed that you could not look at or listen to anything in that world without becoming a part of it...you couldn’t look at anything in that world, for the word at itself implies a separation that did not exist there. Everything was distinct, yet everything was also a part of everything else, like the rich and intermingled designs on a Persian carpet...”
"In the spiritual body I could think more clearly and rapidly because my mind was not clouded by the physical brain. I could pick up the thoughts of people directly, and know what they were going to say before they said it. Up there, a question would arise in my mind, and the answer would arise at the same time. These answers were not simple “yes” or “no” fare, either. They were vast structures of living thought, as intricate as cities. Thoughts entered me directly, and as I received them I was able to instantly and effortlessly understand concepts that would have taken me years to fully grasp in my earthly life. I had a foretaste of another, larger kind of knowledge: one I believe human beings will be able to access in the future. But conveying that knowledge now is rather like being a chimpanzee, becoming a human for a single day to experience all of the wonders of human knowledge, and then returning to one’s chimp friends and trying to tell them what it was like. Now that I’m back on earth the seed of that trans-earthly knowledge has once again been covered over. And yet I know it’s still there. It will take me years to understand, using my mortal, material brain, what I understood so instantly and easily in the brain-free realms of the world beyond. We need to consider the possibility that ordinarily the brain acts as a reducing valve or filter; it blocks our access to knowledge of the higher worlds so that we can function effectively on earth.”
Death is an escape from the “prison of the body” into a freer, more loving way of life. I was essentially the same person in death, but with added powers and sensitivities, and a clearer sense of values. I no longer fear death.
Meetings with Higher Beings
I was greeted by a luminous guardian spirit who non-verbally conveyed three messages, “You are loved and cherished forever. You have nothing to fear. There is nothing you can do wrong.” Another person reports: “I was greeted by all my friends and relatives, even beloved pets who had already passed over. Jesus was with me and wordlessly told me my time to pass over has not yet come, so I must return to earth. I felt transformed by the surge of spiritual power He transmitted and later became more intuitive, more psychic; revelations of future events began pouring forth. Before I returned to my physical body I experienced a flash-forward to my life in the future when I would be living my soul mission; I forgot about this until it began happening.”
Others who have experienced near death have met Buddha, Quan Yin, Mary, angels, or other spiritual guides who come to help with the transition into the afterlife.
I could see that earth is a place where good and evil mix, and that this constitutes one of its unique features. Even on earth there is much more good than evil, but earth is a place where evil is allowed to gain influence in a way that is impossible at higher levels of existence. That evil can occasionally have the upper hand is known and allowed by the Creator as a necessary consequence of giving the gift of free will to beings like us. Small particles of evil are scattered throughout the universe, but the sum total of all that evil is as a grain of sand on a vast beach compared to the goodness, abundance, and unconditional love in which the universe is literally awash. The very fabric of the alternate dimension is love and acceptance, and anything that does not have these qualities appears immediately and obviously out of place there.
I approached a border, felt the joy and love that radiated from the other side, but I was not allowed to go there. Instead I had to go back, to continue my life on earth. “On the day the doors of Heaven closed to me, I felt a sense of sadness unlike any I’d ever known. Emotions are different up there. They’re not just inside but outside as well. Imagine that every time your mood changed here on earth, the weather changed instantly along with it. That your tears would bring a torrential downpour; your joy would make clouds instantly disappear. That gives a hint of how much more consequential changes of mood feel there, how powerfully what we think of as “inside” and “outside” don’t really exist at all.
Earthly Prayers affect the Dead
Many people return to complete or begin a soul mission, which was often assigned during the near-death experience. Or they return to fulfill a responsibility, like raising their children: “It mattered that I returned. I had ties that I had to honor. The clearer the face (of the child calling me back) became, the more I realized this.” Or they are pulled back by the presence and the powerful prayers of loved ones: “The prayers coming to me from the world below were finally starting to get through; countless beings were surrounding me, kneeling in arcs, praying for me. These prayers gave me energy. That’s probably why, profoundly sad as I was (to be returning to earth), something in me felt a strange confidence that everything would be all right. Heaven would come with me. I knew I’d never feel alone again.”
One’s True Identity
I remembered who I truly was up there...a citizen of a universe staggering in its vastness and complexity, and ruled entirely by love. We have other family: beings who are watching and looking out for us—beings we have momentarily forgotten, but who, if we open ourselves to their presence, are waiting to help us navigate our time here on earth. Each and every one of us is deeply known and cared for by a Creator who cherishes us beyond any ability we have to comprehend. That knowledge must no longer remain a secret.
Love Beyond Human Description
“Back on earth, I found it impossible to convey what the love I experienced there actually felt like. Deep down, we already know...we have the ability to recover our connection with that idyllic realm. We just forget that we do, because our brain blocks out that larger cosmic background...The brain—in particular the part which generates our sense of rationality and the feeling of being a sharply defined self—is a barrier to our higher knowledge and experience. It is my belief that we are now facing a crucial time in our existence. We need to recover more of that larger knowledge while living here on earth.”
Earth the Grand School
"I realized earth is a great school where we master personal lessons, pass many tests, evolve to higher levels." “Our role here is to grow toward the Divine, and that growth is closely watched by the beings in the worlds above...beings who I believe are the origin of our culture’s concept of angels.” Love and compassion make up the very fabric of the spiritual realm. In order to return to that realm, we must once again become like that realm, even while we are plodding through this one.
“....physical space seems real, but it is limited. The entire length and height of the physical universe is as a speck of dust compared to the invisible and spiritual realm from which it has risen—the realm of consciousness...This other, vastly grander universe isn’t “far away.” It’s right here, right now; it exists on a different frequency but we’re unaware of it because we are usually closed to those frequencies on which it manifests; the limitations of our sensory organs and our perceptual capacities shut us out from the other dimensions that exist. You don’t have to almost die to glimpse behind the veil—but you must do the work. Learning about that realm from books and presentations is a start—but we each have to go deep into our own consciousness through prayer or meditation to access these truths. The gift of desperation, when we have a terminal disease or find ourselves in an impossible situation, can also open the door to truth.
The soul controls the time of our physical death, whether we are aware of the soul or not. The purpose of each life is to carry out a definite mission; once this mission has been fulfilled (or has failed) the soul turns its attention away, the will-to-live falls away and death of the form/body ensues. The death of any form comes when it no longer serves the evolutionary needs of the soul. Life always continues with or without the form.
Those who meet death prematurely, in an accident or suicide, are placed in a state of limbo on the other side until their original, planned life time has run its course
Death involves several simultaneous processes:
1. The basic process of physical body death:
2. The Occult Explanation of what is behind the above death process:
The Builders and Devas disperse:
Complete death of the physical body occurs when the soul withdraws its consciousness current from the head and its life current from the heart into the etheric body.
The energy centers hold the physical body together making it a coherent, energised, active whole. The withdrawal of the two energy currents affects every center in the body. The consciousness current anchored in the head center qualifies the petals of the "thousand-petalled lotus" at the top of the head; the petals of that lotus have a relationship and an effect upon the petals in every other major energy center within the etheric body, preserving them in activity. When the consciousness thread is withdrawn from the head center an immediate effect is felt in all the petals of all the centers.
The same is true of the life current anchored in the heart; it energises and preserves in livingness all the centers of the body, sending out its currents of life into a point found at the exact center of the lotus. When death takes place, the life current is gathered up by the soul and withdrawn from the heart and thence back into the soul, carrying with it the life of each center in the body.
The last centers to withdraw into nothingness are two related to and in the region of the lungs; it is on these two centers that the soul works if recalled into the dense physical body; when they swing into activity the breath of life returns.
3. After death, cremation:
As soon as the moment of true death has been established by a doctor, cremation is possible, the sooner the better, in harmony with the needs of family and friends to adjust to the impending disappearance of their loved one's form. All forms are dissolved by fire. The physical body is immediately destroyed by cremation and the withdrawing soul is freed; the particles of matter that made up the form/body return to the great reservoir of matter, but they return with the addition of the quality gained through experience: greater (or less) vitality, lovingness and intelligence; hence matter itself gradually evolves, becomes more refined, vibrates to a higher key.
The etheric body continues. Immediately after physical death, the person in the etheric/astral/mental body is as much aware and alert to the environment as s/he was when physically alive. Eventually there is a "second death," the death of the astral and mental vehicles.
For the average good citizen death is a continuance in consciousness of the interests s/he had while "alive;" s/he does not sense much difference between that life and life in "death", and may hover around loved ones until the lure of the physical plane wear off.
For the aspirant or disciple, death is an immediate return to the sphere of learning and service that was developed during the hours of sleep; now this active service to humanity is continuous. The person in the etheric body, carrying all the other bodies, attends schools and classes on the etheric plane, and evolves through the upper sub-planes of the etheric plane until deciding to reincarnate.
Those who were addicted to drugs, who were criminal, cruel, selfish, who lived for the material side of life will be "earth bound;" their desires force them to stay close to their old environment; they may even become entities possessing a fellow addict or criminal. (See Sanctusgermanus.net Entity Possession).
Eventually the soul re-incarnates taking on yet another physical/etheric/emotional/ mental body of more refined and adequate form; this will happen in the same month as the death; if the body dies in May, there will be a future rebirth in the month of May so that the trajectory of evolution continues. The soul will plunge again into life, clothed in a more evolved body, until mastery and unconditional lovingness are attained.
Through all this, through all lives, there remains the integrity of the inner person. Individuality is not lost; the same person is still present, the one who has been loved or hated, who has served humanity or harmed it...this one persists and will forever remain...unique, part of the kingdom of souls.
Life is eternal. Innumerable deaths and rebirths drive evolution:
In sleep, you "die" every night.
In death you are conscious one moment on the physical plane and a moment later, you are conscious on another plane. In sleep the same thing happens. What is the difference?
In "death" the energy currents are withdrawn from both the head and the heart, producing loss of consciousness on the physical plane and disintegration of the physical body.
In sleep only the energy current anchored in the head is withdrawn; you become unconscious on the physical plane; your consciousness or awareness is focused on the etheric plane. The life thread anchored in the heart, along which the life force streams, is not broken so the physical body does not die; the life thread is the soul's path of return to the body.
When you sleep you leave your body and are alive and functioning on the etheric plane. So it is already easy for you to leave your physical body; but because you do not usually remember what happens while your body sleeps, you fail to see the similarity between sleep and death.
If you can train yourself to remain aware as you transition from wakefulness to sleep, then you can continue to be aware of all that happens while your body sleeps. You will develop continuity of consciousness during waking and sleep states. When you have learned to handle your body as it falls asleep, you will more easily maintain continuity of consciousness at the time of death when the soul passes out of the body and moves on to other realms.
Continuity of Consciousness in Sleep Exercise: Here's an exercise to practice each night: Don't just allow yourself to drift off to sleep. Instead relax your toes, feet, calves, knees, steadily moving upwards, finally drawing your attention and consciousness to the top of your head. Try to preserve your consciousness intact as you withdraw consciousness from the brain and pass out onto subtler levels of awareness; eventually you will experience continuity of consciousness or unbroken awareness between your waking hours and the hours when your body sleeps. It may take years of practice before you can go to sleep consciously.
Death in old age and infancy, when the body/form is useless:
Frequently the medical sciences seek to preserve physical lives which serve no useful purpose. Nature, if left to herself, would extinguish them.
Because of our overemphasis on the value of physical life, our fear of death, and our uncertainty about the fact of immortality we interrupt the natural processes and hold the life which is struggling to be free confined to a body quite unfit for the purpose of the soul. This prolonging of life is often due to the desires of family and friends, and not to the person in question, who is frequently an unconscious invalid, an elderly person who is no longer communicative or a baby who is not normal. There is value in remembering the reports of near death experiencers: at "death" they were happy and restored to fully healthy spiritual bodies.
Our ideas about death have been erroneous; we have looked upon it as something to be avoided and feared whereas in reality it should be looked at as the great liberation: the release of the living soul from the limitations of the body and entrance into love and vast freedom.
Death and war:
Death through the destructive process of war is in a different category from death due to disease; death in war is due to "an enforced participation in a great group" death and is under the directive and cyclic intention of our planetary logos, Sanat Kumara, working through the Council of Shamballa. The Beings who direct world processes know that the time has come when the relationship between planetary evil and the Forces of Light or of Good has reached a point of "explosive antagonism." The explosion is therefore permitted but a controlling factor is present, though unrealized by humans.
The Beings who work out the will of God look at the destruction of form in quite a different way than mortals do. The death of bodies is, to them, not death as we understand it, but a beneficent process of liberation. We live in a time that has seen the greatest destruction of human forms in the entire history of our planet. There has been no destruction of human beings. Their lives continue after physical death; they are each essentially the same person, but with added powers.
Even your beloved pet lives on:
When an animal dies who has been especially close to someone here on earth, our special friend goes to a place where there are meadows and hills so they can run and play together. Animals who were ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong, just as we remember them in our dreams of times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
Your pet has spotted you, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion. Happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
