Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.
Based on a question someone asked me. He asked me how do you cope with death and what are your ideas about this topic?
Death is natural, its part of life and I treat it as such and its an initiation in itself. That is why the ancient Egyptians payed so much attention to it. The only problem we have usually is that we are too attached to persons and to certainties. There are different ways to look at death. I’m looking at it as its common in occultism. Death is not really death (an end) but a change into another plane of consciousness/ being. In the process the person dissolves (his/her parts that are impermanent are dissolving), this means the body and the lower parts of the mind (Nephesh and Ruach). The higher aspects of the mind our Nephesh, Chiah and Yechidah are going to a higher plane. Those higher aspects come back from incarnation to incarnation as long as the individual has to learn. That is why people can remember things they have earned from other incarnations and that will assist them in the present. Then there is a certain point the individual can choose to incarnate or not (high level Adept or Master). High evolved persons are very conscious about this, materialistic individuals are not. They will sink into a deep unconscious sleep. (The theosophists say that they dwell in Devachan for a long period. This state is a beautiful world projected by the mind or a hellish world (Avacchi) but they are both illusional. The lower one is evolved the longer this period. It has been written by the old masters that a high evolved being is in devachan for a split second and a lower evolved person aeons ( an Aeon is approx. 2000 years) There is no consciousness of time in this phase since time actually don’t exist. Its a product of the (rational) mind. This place (devachan) is where the soul can rest and prepare for the next phase of destiny in which the is highly depended on how the person lived its present life) . There is always help in the other side from compassionate (angelic) beings/ spirits which is always depended on ones merits. Nevertheless there is always help. So the phrase one is born alone and die alone is simply not true. Actually being alone is not possible. Feeling alone/ lonely is a product of self centeredness. Therefore it has been taught in many mystical magical traditions that one should be ’selfless’. selfless in the sense that one isn’t an independed (egoistic) being but and inter-depended being which forms the ‘universal brotherhood;. In which we are all part of.
What we can do is ‘IF the person permits’ (and NEVER without asking) , that we can tell what happens in the process. That will help the person to get rid of fears and thus in unfortunate incarnations blown by his/ her Karma. Many people, when they accepted their passing tend to become peaceful and pure. This is what I saw with my mother as well. What reveals is the ‘pure being’ which is part of every sentient being.
In case of my mother we (my wife and I) helped her in the process by telling her (by means of inner plane contact telepathically ), while we were in meditation what phases there are. As far as I have seen/ sensed this helped her a lot. And she was willing that I would help her. With ‘Love Empathy and Compassion . Those 3 aspects are crucial.
Those who don’t believe in anything or in re incarnation they will meet what they think. In general we will meet in the process what we were during this life. Its not a matter of 1 truth, its a matter of many possibilities like in life we can choose the life we project. What we think is what we are. What we think is what we create (like our present life) and that creation is maintained by thought patterns and habits. Its very easy to contact someone who is in the process of dying since his/ her senses are highly sensitive and they are more receptive about what we think. The dying person is highly clairvoyant ( because the gross part is dissolving) and receives any thought and idea projected on them. Therefore its important that we can calm our mind and learn to observe and ‘ be’ rather than get carried away in emotions. Its not bad to have emotions (its human) as long as they don’t overrule you or carry you away. Especially nasty for the dying person who gets pulled back all the time by the attachment of the loved ones. We die as we lived our lives.
At least that is how I look at it and experience what I’ve seen in meditations and trance states. I’m a natural clairvoyant and clairsentient which was a curse when I was a child and is a blessing now.
The calming down of the mind is something that has been built up over many years of daily practice of meditations and other practices. Thus by many hours of practice it becomes a natural state of mind that can be induced almost instantly. One is able to be in the eye of the storm wherein ‘ reality’ becomes more and more clear and illusion dissolves.
Its a simplified explanation how I see it. Its in reality much more detailed and deep than I can put in words.
Actually if one know how to deal with death one knows how to deal with live.
