Life unfolds as a series of events. The events of your life may be wildly different from the events of any other life, except for death - a common event in every life. There is no escape from the experience of death.
People die every day. When it’s the death of a loved one, it can be a traumatic experience. When it’s the death of a stranger, it’s a news item.
Death’s impact depends on your understanding of who you are.
If you identify with your body, then death appears to be the end, and you may suffer from a feeling of deep loss when someone close to you dies, fearing that you will never see them again. You may also fear annihilation at your own death.
If you see yourself as a spiritual being having a human experience, you understand that death is not the end. It’s not even something to be feared. It’s simply time for the one who has died to hand in their assignment. You know you’ll see them again because you understand that spirits are immortal. Only bodies die.
No matter how you see death, it’s an experience we will all be having this lifetime. Facing death is one of our greatest fears but it need not be a fear at all.
The fear of dying is based on the stories we tell ourselves about dying; it’s not the actual dying that’s so scary. In fact, if you’ve ever been present when someone died, you know it’s often a very peaceful experience for everyone involved – including the person doing the dying.
Death is one of those topics not included on the list of things to talk about until it’s staring you in the eye or when you’re the last member of your cohort still here.
In The Way of Mastery, Jeshua tells us that the whole point of his death and resurrection was to remind us that death is not the end. It’s just another experience.
Of course, the Church has been spinning stories of hell and damnation to keep us in line – but you don’t need to believe any of that. It’s just another story.
