How do I cease to exist without dying?
How can you die while living without your body dying? It is possible to achieve it if you know what is true and what is false. Let me walk you through this. 🙂
Your life is like a movie you have made that spans your entire life.
You take pictures of all your experiences as you live and store them inside you. These become your “self” throughout your childhood, school life, work life, marriage, etc. Not only have you taken pictures of your entire past, but you will continue to do so even in the future of all that you see hear, taste, smell and feel.
Including everything that happens today, are pictures simultaneously taken at the moment you capture it. Moreover, your self is inside that movie. When you think carefully about your day today, the first thing you did as you woke up and what you did all day, aren’t they all inside that movie, in your mind? Even this very moment, if you think about it once it has passed, isn’t it also in a picture?
People live inside their own mind world, which overlaps the world. They are not living in the world, but in a world of illusions that their mind has made. This is why Truth, real value, and true joy cannot be found in the false world.
Your lived life is just a fictional story that has been interpreted by your self-centered perspective of the things in the world. You are a director, a main character, and the only audience who can watch this movie, just like a dream at night.
No matter what happens in the dream, nothing can be applied to reality nor approved as Truth. Likewise, you may want to talk about your trauma, hardships, and the heartbreak you went through in life, but holding onto them are meaningless when seen from the real world.
All creation that exist in the living world are the representation of the Universe; it exists as the Holy Spirit and Soul. The shape is the Spirit, and the mind within the shape is the Soul.
True life in the living world is not confined to the shape and there is no such thing as a lifespan.
True life exists before, during, and after the shape as the Spirit and Soul.
You can be affected by external conditions when you exist in this shape, but it is only a brief moment in the infinite time of the universe. Your short life in the material existence can be classified like a movie genre, such as drama, crime, or horror and it can have a happy ending or not. But it doesn’t matter because this fleeting life that exists as material is like waking from a dream.
Once you wake up from the dream, your real life begins. Your true life will unfold once you come out of your self-made mind world.
Everything in the living world simply lives its life. You have no mind that you are living but do everything you need to do of your own accord. You have no attachments of your own and have no discernments of what is good and what is bad. Though you seem to simply be, you are able to exist for you are one with the Universe. You are free from life and death because you have transcended the conception of the individual.
Such is a life of nature’s flow without hinderance.
The reason and purpose why humans are born into this world and live is to discover their true selves. This is the true meaning of the phrases; ‘Cleanse the mind’, ‘Those who seek death shall live, and those who seek life shall die’, and ‘The end of the world’.
If the story, the main character, and the whole background world in your movie are deleted then you will disappear, and this is death. In terms of Truth, nirvana or spiritual death is getting rid of yourself and the living world in the false world entirely.
You can die completely only when the body is alive. If the body dies, then you really die. This is the way you can die while living without physically dying, and the most important and urgent thing to do in life.
Since you are the maker and the only audience that can make and watch your mind world, the only person capable of eliminating is yourself and no other.
You can destroy your self-made world only after having awareness that you are not living in the living world but in a delusional mind world where Truth does not exist.
Find your eternal self that exists in the living world. 😄🙏
