We Are All Going To Die
Death is inevitable. Each moment dies for the next moment to occur. Each moment has an effect on the next moment. What we did previously has an effect on what we are doing now. This is how rebirth is said to be; we carry our set of ideas from one moment to the next and, in this way, we set up our life, fate, destiny, karma, attitude.
We hold the gross belief that we are a fixed entity because we cling to ideas about our self, thinking “I am this sort of person.” As we refine our understanding, we realise that it was our ideas that we were fixated upon, and that the true constant in life is consciousness. Consciousness has never changed throughout our life. That is the real continuity, moment by moment.
It is said that reincarnation is the same: we carry over an attitude, and this influences our next form until complete enlightenment.
Dying at every moment means that we can either see fresh inspiration,
or carry on with our tired, old games.
We can die to dream, or die to live!
The soliloquy of Shakespeare’s Hamlet -“To be, or not to be…”- is all about life and death. “To be, or not to be…” means “To live, or not to live…”: Hamlet discusses how painful and miserable human life is, and how death would be preferable, if it were not for the fearful uncertainty of what comes after death.
We are all going to die, thank goodness.
To have just one lifetime being ‘me’ would be hell!
Through understanding, change occurs.
We realise that we are pure consciousness,
not the self-proclaimed ‘me’.
We are so much more.
