There is plenty of evidence to suggest on a human level this is indeed a disaster, with thousands of human beings dead or injured. Since death is something human beings in general tend to avoid, it must be a disaster, right?
So how does one start the discussion on this subject? So many starting points, which in of itself raises further questions.
Let’s turn it around, for a second.
Imagine if you would or can, the following:
If a human wasn’t afraid of death and would rather see their role as someone who must carry out their earthly duty until they are chosen – until they die, until they get the golden ticket, then dying might not have been a tragedy.
If humans thought of death as a liberation and a true opportunity to move to a situation of their personal betterment, a positive rather than a negative, would the world not now be in celebration? Would, what we see as destruction really be called a disaster?
Of course this is just a scenario for the mind to consider.
This leads perhaps to this thought, regardless of tsunamis or earthquakes it depends on how the onlooker’s own perception is on death. If death is seen as a tragedy, then it becomes tragedy. If death is perceived as a reward, then it will be seen as exactly that. Therefore the most important aspect is the human onlooker’s own starting point. The truth about any situation lies with the one who looks, for it is within him or her, the decision on whether the scene before them is tragic or celebratory. It is based on their own starting point.
Of course there is still the scene in front of us, where human beings bodies have stopped operating, and that which seems to animate the body has left. There must be a truthful reason for that ?
Or is there another view?
What about the thoughts of the onlookers who just view the happenings and understand there are many views and thoughts. Their thoughts are no more likely to be correct than the others, and through this, they decide to just observe. What is it they find or see?
What we perhaps can say from knowledge or experience, which may be completely illusory, is that we as human beings have groped this planet for thousands of years and still we seem surprised at this thing called death. Our own minds and experience tells us that death comes to us all. Yet we still seemed shocked ? Why ? Do we want to avoid something? Why is it such a surprise that every human has to and will die? Are we afraid to talk about it? Are we the same people who created televisions, computers, the wheel, satellites and spaceships, and yet we can’t understand the one thing that has and will come to all mankind? Why is that so ?
We need to step back: So what do we think we know?
To a human mind there seems to be that which looks like the ending of that which we call person. It happens to every human being but to some they seem to have a particular ‘sudden or spectacular’ death. Mystics and philosophers, seers and scientists have placed their suggestions forward and some humans have adapted the same. So many thoughts and considering, and yet no proof. So what is left?
What do you – the person, the mind, reading this know for sure?
You know you have a body, but you never created it or cannot remember how it was created?
You can believe you have a mind which may operate through your brain, which you can believe you have? Yet that mind does not seem to be quite in any place. That mind can be aware of many things, seen and unseen.
Your eyes and that which you see through them creates that which we call images, but even when your eyes are closed, still you can be aware of yourself.
You have never been in an other’s head, therefore you know only your own mind.
Your mind decides through thought, memory, vision and the other senses, your world.
Then why is it we all see or have different opinions on what we see, or understand or do not understand that which we call our world? If all the tools of each being are more or less the same, then why do we not all end with the same conclusions about everything?
Is it that we are all individuals and each individual sees what they wish to see, according to their accumulated sense of knowledge?
Let’s go back to the question, what have we got:
A) There is the scene which shows someone dying.
B) To die is a positive experience.
C) To die is a negative experience
D) To die is something other than negative or positive, but the human mind cannot comprehend such a position because it knows only a world of opposites, negative or positive, a world of either or.
E) The scene is an illusion and never took place.
Point A seems 100% true?
Point B could be true if the human looking at the deaths see it in that way?
Point C could be true if the human looking at the deaths see it in that way?
Point D could be true because there are so many things we do not understand.
Point E could there be something we missed?
There is the individual mind of the see-er who can decide, without any true starting point or proven knowledge that the scene they see, is, for want of a better description, real (which covers point A) and depending on the person, a ‘negative’ or a ‘positive’ experience. Points B and C.
The see-er decides on what they see. The happening itself attaches no attributes of negative or positive, that decision is solely with the onlooker.
There is a truth about the scene which mankind does not understand – point D
The only other possibility not covered is the possibility the scene is illusion and has never truly taken place. What is the possibility of this scenario being true?
Is there only one mind which is yours? Everything else exists just as a dream for you?
None of the dream is real and you are making the dream up as you go along. If there is an intelligence that operates the cells in your body and beats your heart and moves your limbs before you can command them to move, then surely anything is possible and not only what we believe. Your arms and fingers and eyes operate regardless of you commanding them. Is time real ? If it is not real how could there be a progression of anything?
If this were true then what would it mean of all life and death?
For millennia human have searched the sky, the mountains and the rivers. They have watched the awe of sunrise and sunset, they have watched watched the stars dance across the darkness of the unknown space. They have calculated and tested, they have searched and searched more, some have just thrown caution to the wind and believed, through their faith.
What is it they have searched for? They have searched for themselves. They have always felt outside the circle, they have searched for the missing link. The link which will explain, who we are! If there was no such thing as God or life source that created us, how could we have ever come up with the idea of it?
So to re-organise what I have suggested, the options or answers to death are not to be found by looking at the scene, but by finding out who we are:
- We are humans who somehow inhabited this earth and we are born and will die.
- There is a reason for this.
- There is no reason for this, it just is.
- We are not humans inhabiting this earth. It is an illusion.
Earlier I mentioned the fact human beings have searched and are still searching for the answers to who we are.
I also mentioned the fact that some have offered answers and some of these answers have been accepted intellectually by humans.Evidence does show that these humans, when they accept and believe an answer, regardless of the diversity of one answer over an other, the need for answers to fundamental questions like death become less important, and the individual can display a sense of purpose.
Again this belief can attract others who drift to and fro and long for answers themselves. This does not mean any of these answers are correct. They could be as diverse as a belief in Catholicism to be the only real answer to who we are, or it could be a belief in Nazism as the answer to earth’s need for liberation.
There is another piece of evidence which the world and human beings are now after thousands of years picking up on. It is not found in the traditional way or places man has looked but has been found in individuals of no great worldly importance, it’s been found in the heart of men:
A display of inner peace, a quiet yet powerful emanating stillness which has been seen clearly displayed by individuals, or as they would say: ‘through the individual’. Anyway, this is not an individual who has latched on to another idea (there is still those who latch onto the idea but do not display the peace), but an individual who through their very being, triggers something within the onlooker or listener, which they themselves seem to recognise. Like a memory being recalled. A memory of a peaceful, fulfilled existence. If there was evidence needed as to the direction man must search, surely this is it. There could be no memory trigger if it was irrelevant?
Out of all the different beliefs and scenarios, man has thrown to the world about man’s existence, man’s life and death and the reason why, few have actually offered evidential proof. Few that is except these individuals who through their own demonstration of inner power and the fact that the listener can readily recognise the memory triggered as real and relevant to them. Not always at first, but usually once heard, it is forever recognised.
There are many questions asked about death and I have probably raised more questions. However, I suspect, you have read this to find what my answer is to the question of death and now you haven’t got that answer. Why?
My answer is not your answer.
Yes, there must be a real ‘true’ answer, but each individual must find their own answer or it would only be another mental concept, they should find it, if they need to find that answer.
The answer to death will be found in the heart of life.
