Death is the one common fact of human existence, and yet we choose to ignore it, to avoid thinking about it. We fear it and for most it is the end of life; it may be the end of physicality, but it definitely is not the end of consciousness. Death does not exist. Your being is beyond the experience of birth or “death”- you are eternal. But most of us see existence as identification with the body, this is falsehood. We are playing a role: we are changing a costume-that’s what our body is. It’s a play of consciousness. All fear vanishes when you live in the knowingness of who you are your true identity. There is within you a free consciousness waiting to be discovered. Introspection, silence, meditation, sadhana (spiritual practice) helps you to understand that you live in a world of falsehood. Only by coming out of the ignorance of falsehood and duality do you experience the true knowledge. When you know who you are, you realize the body can be destroyed, can be killed, but never the Eternal in you, which is pure consciousness and indestructible, with no birth or death. This is your soul. Introspection will free you from the most deep fear-based expression of this falsehood and take you to the non-death experience of life. Remember, your being is beyond the experience of birth or death- you are eternal. All disease is falsehood. All illness is falsehood. Remember, for the body the highest victory is perfect health, your natural state is perfect health.
Before you can feel or see any disorders in your physical body, they are in the subtle bodies. As you sit in your meditation, receive strength from your “I AM” Presence. This means full divine power in all of your subtle bodies. Then these subtle bodies will be strong and will refuse sickness, will refuse the force of disease. Healing is created by working with your cells with faith in the Light, returning truth and supreme harmony to those cells. Do you take time for quiet moments or are you always “busy”? Are you willing to fully experience the Divine with in you? There is such power within you. Trust this power. It is God Himself. It is your true Self.
How can I talk to the Self? The nature of Self is so mysterious, so subtle, the subtlest of the whole universe. The Self is form and the Self is formless; nameless, yet it is given names. Self is pure consciousness, is life force and bliss, omnipotent and omnipresent. Self is truth, wisdom, and knowledge, boundless and free, beyond space and time. The Self illuminates everything. It’s strange to speak of the unspeakable. The Self is to be experienced as the most powerful message of God. The Self is beyond anything you experience with words.
This bliss of the Higher Self is always new. The laughter of the Self is completely different from the pleasure of the senses. You know, those of us who depend on the senses for our everyday happiness, how we search for this happiness from one object or place to another, new things, new this, new that, just for the sake of satisfaction. But with the Self, you have “new” by itself. The Self is in you, in its highest, in its fullness. The Self is the foundation of your life experience. It is peace, joy, Love, and truth. It reveals itself by Grace. When you are being “purified,” the Self appears. It can be anywhere, anytime, in any situation, even when you are tired or in a crisis. The Self is Light. The Self is Silence. The Self is the All. The Self is the Witness. The Self is the observer. The Self supports all but does not become involved, is unattached. The Self experiences all and is still unattached. The Self is victory. The Self is glory. There is “no thing” greater than the Self …and you are the Self! When you understand that you are only consciousness, there is “no thing” to do, no liberation to seek, no ignorance to come out of, no karma, no personal or individual responsibility, “no thing” to become. Just be and it unfolds by itself.
Your true Self waits to be discovered…
