Spiritual Liberation Part 2
Physical death can be transformed into spiritual liberation. It is a priceless, spiritual opportunity to achieve illumination and oneness with one’s higher soul. Such an opportunity should not be missed. If the person is not aware of this spiritual opportunity, then he will have to spend time in the lower astral world for purging or purification. This can be a relatively short or long period of time, depending on the quality of life the person had lived.
It is important that the body of the dying person should not be dragged, or be physically or psychologically disturbed. Noise should be avoided or reduced to a minimum level to avoid distracting the attention of the dying person from the inner light. There is a transition period of about 24 hours for the soul to transfer from the physical to the inner world. The first three to five hours are the most critical period. The brain may be physical considered dead, but the higher energy centres or chakras are still alive. It is through the higher energy centres that the incarnates soul sees the light and united with the brilliant white light. The use of drugs such as sedatives and tranquillisers will not only interfere with the function of the brain, but also with the function of the chakras on the head areas. During this time, the incarnated soul is given the opportunity to merge with the inner brilliant while light and go directly to the higher world or heaven. This opportunity for spiritual liberation is priceless. To distract the incarnated soul from such a priceless opportunity is indeed a serious crime against the soul. An orange light bulb can be lighted to facilitate and ease the process of dying.
Doing the 24 hour transition period, if certain organs have to be removed, it has to be done with minimum physical and psychological disturbance. Unnecessary conversation must be avoided. Proper respect should be given to the soul that is still in the process of transition from the physical to the inner world. The body can be cremated after 12 hours to facilitate the transition of the soul to the inner world.
