All birthed, unto dust become earth.
That which is born, loves life, and therefore, fears death. It is the norm.
However, from a metaphysical point of view, there is no death. But then, from the same perspective, there is no birth either.
How can that be? Is it not some mumbo-jumbo of nut-heads?
Well, from both a higher scientific and an evolved spiritual understanding, this whole world of names and forms is, eventually and essentially, a non.
That is, when matter is “broken down” to its “bones” as if, the residue is not more or less empirical matter but energy. Now, beyond this break-down of material “matter”, and finding it as energy, science does not get anything - except a whole lot of nothing!
Having worked itself to death, and trying to find the “God Particle” as though, science comes croppers. It finds no “thing” beyond matter’s energy. On this much, or little, science works. Beyond it, even the best of the theoretical physicists fail to catch.
To put it simply, the Principle Cause of “all this” escapes the reach of science.
Oh, they , the so-called “brahmins of science”, the “holy cow” of human brains, the scientists and the intellectuals do speculate to death about the reason of the causation and the dissolution of the cosmos. But to date, all that they have been able to conjure up is that all this that we see “here” is about a couple of billion years old, brought into life by some “big bang”.
Mind you, it is no science. Just speculation. As good as any. Yours or mine.
The best the “gods of science” have been able to come up with is, that in some bang-banging of atoms, an explosion came about. Out of which, by itself, without the help of any “hidden hand”, this marvelously well-organized world came into being.
In other words, a certain god-forsaken chemical interaction gave us life. And hence, it, this self induced chemical reaction is our god, if you are looking for one! Therefore, do not look!
But do, as anyone with a little bit of brains must.
So, what is it that higher metaphysics knows, and which even the best of physicists do not?
It is that energy, becoming subtle, and yet more, to its deepest core, becomes less yet more! It, energy, delved unto the End, reveals itself as non-energy, and thenceforth, as Essence. As wind is air is space!
Similarly so, having delved unto the dust of no-thing-ness, since lost times the freemystics have been reporting, at least here in India, that all empirical or earthly matter self-reveals itself to be a “non-thing”.
Not a nothing, but “no thing”, not even energy. Nor a thing or stuff of some sort of a “material essence”. But Cosmic Self-Essence.
Simplifying it further, it may be said that the matter that seemingly our body is, the energy our being similarly seeming is - in core-essence thereafter, seen single-eyed - in cosmic rapture finds its self-essence to be nothing other or else than the Cosmic Self.
As the drop reveals itself to be but water, and the earth as dust, thus identical is the Revelation of the Cosmic Self.
It is told that the observing-self of every karmically blessed spiritual seeker, finds the “wise serpent” within - the metaphysical “son of God” or the ‘kundalini’ power, so far lying dormant at the base of the human spine - getting “awakened”.
It is then, “raised up” by a hidden hand as though. And the yogi, with bodily eyes closed but the ethereal “single eye” open, sees the “life” of the body leave the body, and stand outside of itself - literally so! - as “a point of existence”.
Looking at own-self, this “existential eye of metaphysical non-entity” grasps then on that it is “something”, but is not the bodily being it had taken itself to be, till then. And thence, this “self-observing point of reference” is taken to a transcendental revelation, and unfolding of the Self.
And if truth be told, then, the about to be Buddha thenceforth witnesses many a wondrous metaphysical vision. Until it all ends, as magnificently as it had begun. And “whatever is left thereof”, though yet “feeling” itself as “life energy”, that suddenly it “collapses” - unto the Self of What Is.
And this, self-witnessing “son of God” - so to say - finds its self to be the Whole of All. That is, the born stands “alive” as the Unborn.
Alone. In unison with its Cosmic Self. As the Absolute.
Wherever “It” looks, it finds all to be Own Self. The whole cosmos, it finds as own-self. There is no “other” self there. Not even of a this or that self of a god of some sort! But ONE SELF.
Having discovered in that surreal moment of existence that all self is One Self, the self-witnessing completes itself.
From this unity consciousness, of the self-realization of being the Universal Self, the “It” of What Is finds itself again in the realm of dual-consciousness. The Cosmic Oneness of Infinitude now, becomes aware that it is “back”!
From self-discovering itself to be the Infinite Unity of All, to being the mortality of the bodily entity et all. That is, from God to man, again!
Thus, my friend, is the Journey unto the Universal Self.
This is the “life” in you, me, and our enemies too. “It” is a Unified Wholeness, in Infinity and in Eternity. This “son of God” resides, as the “kingdom of heaven” within us all. As the “make” of God, as if.
You are this! Deathless, foreverness.
The body dies. ‘That’ which makes up all that is, does not. “It” is the “make” of us all. In other words, we are thus literally made in the make of God!
What is there to fear, but non-knowledge?
Those who do not get “It”, fear death. “Get” IT. And life fearlessly.
