What Is Death?

on

Welcome fellow souls to « The Human Family Crash Course Series, » a new project collaborated together by empress2inspire.blog and dios-raw.com. Together we will be working on a different topic for each crash course; our eighth topic is focused on «Death». Each topic will have eight posts with posts on Mondays and Thursdays. We hope you enjoy our series and we look forward to knowing how our posts have inspired you!

At some station in our lives most people question what will happen when they die. Death can feel frightening and mysterious, and perspectives on what happens and what it means vary significantly.

Here are some quotes to get your mind pondering on the theme of death ~ 

“Death is nothing else but going home to God, the bond of love will be unbroken for all eternity.” ~ Mother Theresa 

“Birth in the physical is death in the spiritual. Death in the physical is the birth in the spiritual.” ~ Edgar Cayce 

“It’s only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth – and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up, we will then begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had.” ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

All of us are going to die, so there is no use in being afraid of death. You don’t feel miserable at the prospect of losing consciousness of your body in sleep; you accept sleep as a state of freedom to look forward to. So is death; it is a state of rest, a pension from this life. There is nothing to fear. When death comes, laugh at it. Death is only an experience through which you are meant to learn a great lesson: you cannot die.

Our real self, the soul, is immortal, everlasting and infinite. We may sleep so to say for a little while in that change called death, but we can never be destroyed. We exist, and that existence is eternal. The wave comes to the shore, and then goes back to the sea; it is not lost. It becomes one with the ocean, or returns again in the form of another wave. This body has come, and it will vanish; but the soul essence within it will never cease to exist, nothing can terminate that eternal consciousness.

Hinduism includes a large variety of beliefs and practices and is both a religion and a culture. The core Hindu belief about what happens after death focuses on reincarnation. Most Hindus believe in an eternal, immortal soul that is reincarnated at death based on its actions in life, known as its karma. The consequences of karma are an automatic process and cannot be avoided.

A person may suffer in one life due to karmic reverse roles to understand the other from the current life or a previous life. The ultimate goal in Hinduism is to achieve moksha, or freedom from reincarnation. This is achieved by eliminating bad karma through good actions, meditation, spiritual devotion or freedom from ignorance and desire.

Once moksha is achieved, the soul becomes one with, or acknowledges that it and everything else is already one with Brahman, the ultimate reality or universal God.

Scientifically a particle of matter or a wave of energy is indestructible, as science has proved and so the spiritual essence of you is also indestructible. Matter undergoes change; the soul undergoes changing experiences. Radical changes are termed death, but death or a change in form does not change or destroy the spiritual essence, it continues in realms overlapping this one. 

The body is only a piece of clothing, you have changed your clothes in this lifetime many times, when you give up this bodily dress at death you do not change. You are just the same, an immortal soul, a child of God that transitions to another plane of existence to continue on your path home to Source. We are all walking eachother home and all paths lead home.

Your soul chose the divine plan of your life, death comes when the spirit is ready to detach the silver cord connecting the physical and spiritual astral body after the life experiences have been completed.

Feel free to leave your thoughts below on what death means to you..

  1. Most interesting topic you picked to write about. I have written many articles on the subject of death myself.

      As Haruki Murakami wrote, “Death is not the opposite of life but an innate part of it. By living our lives, we nurture death.” When all is said and done, it’s quite unavoidable to see demise in terms of the very meaning of life. … Sure, death is not the only thing that gives meaning to our lives.

    Interesting,you have no replys, maybe this is a sign that means nothing to some people. For me personally I think it’s the end, you fie it’s game over for your body. No reincarnation no nothing. What you leave behind it’s another thing, if you do something great or something horrible people will be talking about that thing for a long time. Else you will be forgotten.

      Philosophy begins with the death, the death of Socrates, but he goes to his death with equanimity – without fear. And the key thing is that philosophy can allow you to overcome the fear of death without requiring a belief in the afterlife, a sort of longing for immortality.

      Thank you for being honest, Nitish. Much appreciated. Death is a significant and inevitable part of life. Thinking and talking about it, understanding how you feel and what you believe, and sharing your wishes with your loved ones and medical team can give you peace of mind and allow others to take care of you in accordance to your wishes.

        Thank you so much fo your reply! But I think talking about death and all such stuff only can give anxiety, and a feeling of helplessness in individuals. Look, death is an intimidating topic, and everybody is not comfortable with it. I have seen people scared after a mere discussion about death. Yes we can consolidate this by changing the terminology to more accommodating words such as redumption, salvation etc. I hope, I am not wrong. Pl correct if it is the case.
        Thank you!

    Death is a biological end to function of the human body. Only that is measurable. It is simple for me to keep it that simple. I am totally content at not colouring the idea of death with what any teacher ever said or how it is philosophised by religions and religious people.

      Life and death (死活) is a fundamental concept in the game of Go, where the status of a distinct group of stones is determined as either being “alive”, where they may remain on the board indefinitely, or “dead,” where the group will be lost as “captured”.

      Thank you Nadine. Death is the permanent, irreversible cessation of all biological functions that sustain a living organism. Death is an inevitable, universal process that eventually occurs in all living organisms.
