SPIRIT I am not afraid of death or suffering anymore because in all that I see a story separate from my truth, the ultimate truth that I live with, the eternal, ever youthful, and ever fresh, beyond age, truth. These stories can come and go, they have come and gone like blink and a miss appearance in my existence but the eternal truth story of mine has always been there. This separate story is different from truth. Since we are not able to see the complete truth and the complete package that we are, this worldly life is like an illusion because we are not able to realize and perceive it in the light of the larger truth. It is a reality that is beautiful and if we are able to realize it then we can fulfill the mission of our human incarnation. Being human is not a pain; it is an opportunity to serve the giver, the divine, the divinity, the very current of life itself, the eternal truth. We need to realize the beauty of this life, this creation. The suffering vanishes if we are immersed in bliss, if we are beyond and yet within. Everything becomes part of an eternal, immortal and ever continuing beauty and bliss. We come, fulfill our purpose, go back to where we came from and come back when it’s time. If we are able to see everything including these material realms from the seat of the void, from the seat of bliss and truth, then everything is truth. However, materialism becomes illusion when we look at it from a different place, a place of ignorance. Life lived with ignorance is difficult.
