Death

  • The illusory end of the experience that is engendered by the belief in separation.
  • The illusory end of the journey of unconsciousness.
  • The illusory outcome of believing in finitude.
  • The illusory outcome of believing in separation from Divinity/God/Source.
  • The illusory outcome of believing in being other than THE SUPREME.
  • Death is unreal. The end of unreality is not real.
  • Death seems to occur only in the delusion of being separate from Divinity/God/Source.
  • Death seems to occur only in the delusion of being other than THE SUPREME.
  • When someone seems to die, they cease to appear externally. Instead, their eternal aspect is directly available through gnosis. Their eternal aspect may also be available through subtle perception, if necessary.
  • In Supreme Enlightenment, the body is not cast off. Instead, the body is transcended and disappears when it serves no further purpose.
  • Death is transcended when the root of delusion is transcended.
  • The apex realization of the impossibility of death corresponds to the transcendence of all untruth.

Sayings:

  • “It is only delusion that dies.”
