The body is a temporarily loaned domicile that houses a Spirit. Once you are able to cleanse and awaken the Spirit with the help of God (and others aka mentors/partners), you become one with the stream of pure consciousness with the universe.
Then you are able to listen to God’s desires for you and act accordingly based on his inspiration, energy and grace and achieve superhuman feats in this world as did many greats who came before us.
All the nameless human beings who used to house this world have been easily turned to dust and forgotten. They ate, slept, mated, and did whatever human beings have been doing since the evolution of apes and then became one with the soil again. It it inevitable, quite necessary for this to happen.
The only ones that remain in the collective consciousness of our history are deservingly the ones who gave up their selfish life for the good of many and pushed forward the level of our existence.
Once we die, it is “time’s up”. We must do all that is possible before the time is up, with the temporary bodies and the genetic potential we are given at that moment in time.
And then we die. And the cycle continues. With every iteration of the human species, there’s people who awaken themselves and sacrifice their lives in order to push human evolution forward. It is our grave responsibility to set aside our selfish desires, achieve pure consciousness and live our lives dedicated to the service of many.
The concept of “eternal life” might have been more or less a metaphor – where the key to immortality is living a life worth living. If you cleanse your Spirit and achieve the consciousness at the highest level, then you become one, unified and joined with divine universal wisdom. At that point, you cease being just you, whether you are John or Ethan or Tom or Anthony or Kathleen or Jennifer. You start living life as one servant of the Universe, dedicated to the good of all beings on this universe. At that stage, you serve the world as best as you can, and inevitably you die. At the end of that journey, it ceases to matter whether you lived 40 years or 80 years or eternally. As long as the Spirit exists, to help the world, to love all your brothers and sisters, to give up your selfish desires for the good of many … as long as that consciousness keeps flowing and it will as long as the Spirit/Universe/God exist …. then it wouldn’t matter that Terry or Katie or Sunny or Olivia are now dead and separated from their body.
We live in each other’s collective consciousness, and we live fo each other until the End of time. Until the end of time. The Spirit never dies. Nor the collective wisdom of our past. The ones who gave their lives for this iteration and the next – those we thank, and then we pay it forward.
And the cycle continues!
(I hope in the next iteration, we are living with much more abundant love, acceptance, wisdom, compassion and patience in our hearts! Carpe Diem)
To die a glorious death for the service of many is much better than having lived out your human life-span over 90 years and dying painfully of some natural cause or cancer. What good would it be for me to take up more food as a dying old man.
Don’t leave any regrets! 🙂 We are going to die anyways. And that’s kinda liberating.
