Life means, something beginning to exist. Death means, something ceasing to exist.
Life and death are not opposite to each other. They are not polarities, but, complementaries. They are simultaneous. They are two sides of the same coin.
What is living today, dies tomorrow. And what is dead tomorrow, again takes life, the day after tomorrow.
In existence, actually nothing dies. Everything just changes it’s form and shape.
Even in our human body, every minute, many cells die, and birth of new cells takes place. That is, even biologically viewing, birth and death is always a simultaneous phenomenon.
So, one who has experienced, this existential reality of existence(UNIVERSE), never fears either life or death.
He knows that, life is happening just as a mysterious phenomenon all around, in every living thing. And a human life is also just a drop of water, in the whole ocean of universal existence…
Outgrowing the fear of DEATH:
Death is fearful because, that is the moment, beyond which your IDENTITY no more exists. What you have called as YOU, will simply disappear.
So, this fear exists, as long as you approach life in a possessive attitude, and that too in a materialistic way.
The moment you start altering your attitude towards the approach of your life, the fear of death starts evaporating. The more you start seeking, the more fearless you start becoming.
Finally, being on the path of seeking SOMETHING WHICH NEVER DIES, the cyclic nature of your life’s existence(Birth and death cycle) itself is transcended.
Seeking something which never dies:
This is nothing but seeking LIFE itself…
LIFE, which is LIVELY, MOBILE, INTENSE, RISKY, DANGEROUS, INSECURE etc., etc.,
” Live a dangerous life… Because that’s the only way to live..” – Osho Rajneesh..
And choosing either life or death is an everyday choice. Whenever you are going through something, look for LIFE in it. Try to seek the LIVELY ESSENCE from that moment. Extract life from such an experience, and make it a part of yourself..
This is how, your life force expands and evolves..
Death is STAGNATION, SECURITY, DUALITY, LONG LASTING, DULL etc.,
Whereas life is a FLOW, INTENSE, ONENESS, MOMENTARY, ENTHUSIASTIC etc.,
And, any virtue like TRUTH, LOVE, HONESTY, RESPECT etc., are just outcomes of choosing life in each and every aspect of LIVING..
Slowly, while walking on this path, your own uniqueness makes itself unveiling to you, and gradually, you, yourself only experience that something, which you can offer to the existence, that never dies, even after your physical death..
So, I repeat, whenever you have got an opportunity to choose…..
Choose LIFE… Not DEATH….!
