Death
    #1947167 - 09/24/03 09:07 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

How does everyone cope with the idea that everyone you know will eventuial die and there is nothing you can do about it. With the idea also being that you will probaly never see them again even after your own death. I know through the buddists way we should try to avoide attachments and just accept the way things are but it is still hard.

i see death as a transition i know eventually i will see everybody that i have experienced this life with in the after life. i never got this until a few years ago it was really a hard concept to get. but we all die everyday in someway. eg. loss of job, end of relationships, ect. even smaller things. death is a way of change hopefully for the better .

As you said, there is nothing we can do about it, so why create something from  nothing?  Instead of dwelling on what may be, instead enjoy what is.

> we should try to avoide attachments and just accept the way things are but it is still hard.

It gets easier to avoid attachments when you die.  :wink:

i just accept that i'm never ever gonna know for sure what happens after death. i have no set belief systems, everything is opinion. i dont want to get too attached to a belief system that could be wrong, it will just make death harder; ie; freeing yourself from those attachments.

Saying or believing that death is the ultimate end for us , is like saying or believing that life is a disease, because the outcome is always fatal.

Well I think you need as much time as you can get in this life to sort out all your problems ect. Then if your lucky your next life might be better, but the main aim is not to be reborn.

I'm convinced that there are far better places in the universe in which to physically incarnate oneself.

And if there arent, I'm asking God for my money back :smile:

I've died some 700,000 times.
Chances are, most of the people here have lived many, many lives.
We live in order to experience physical life
Our everyday thoughts and actions create our reality
Spirit is an eternal body of energy that has consciousness and memory
It's purpose is to perpetually evolve in every aspect
The circle of life is continual
Life and Death, Creation and Destruction - this is the process
It creates continuous learning, which becomes wisdom, which contributes to the perpetual evolution of all-that-is

When a spirit enters a physical body, it fuses with the body and mind, and instead of being a total unit, it separates into compartments expressed as the unconscious, subconscious, and conscious mind. Spirit is forgotten about, because we learn and are taught to ignore the unconscious and focus mainly on the subconscious. There is a dense energy formation, which resides in the brain stem, that blocks memories of previous lives. That is, until the conscious learns enough to merge with the subconscious and un..and past life memories begin to surface.

On the soul level there is something called the akashic records
Which your higher self is always attuned to
It contains the memories, experiences, and lessons of all of your physical lives..which contribute to your spirit's evolution.
Every thought, every action, matters.
The universe will balance everything out in the end
But we do create karma, through our thoughts and actions
And it is up to us to balance that karma through our thoughts and actions

We are spiritual sovereign beings, having human experiences
Death is a part of life, the end of that incarnation
When you die, you examine your life
And depending on what type of karma you created for yourself, and how much wisdom you gained
You will incarnate again, and again, until you have learned enough to have mastered physical reality, and no longer need it for evolution.
At which point you may choose to align with Creation in pure spirit form and live as blissful energy, or incarnate in physical form again as a helper.

So the way to true happiness, lies in every moment. How you choose to perceive your reality, as a mind-fuck trying to break you, or as a series of challenges and lessons to learn and gain from.
Learn from every moment, cherish life and absorb all you can from every aspect of it.
Love and spread love.
Maintain your free will and your spiritual freedom.
Breathe and speak and observe and listen and live

All you can do is experience and be fully in every moment.
Cause if you don't get it right the first time, it will get harder, and progressively harder, and more pronounced, until you learn the lesson.
Because that's why we're here.. to learn.

Death is not the end. Death is just the beginning.

Heh, Concern yourself with what you want.... :grin:

Reminds me of that Rush song, where Geddy is like "I choose free will!!!"
Peace.

:redpanda:
If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
