I “will” die today….

25 posts in this topic

I’ve just realized it…”I” dies TODAY, always! Don’t let your mind fool you. 
 

You “will”die today! Even though, my reader, you don’t even exist. Oh boy…I will also be dying alone. The most scariest part of the Existence, for the ego, of course. 

Death is not going to be in the always escaping future. It is going to happen today. 
 

Contemplate it. How much time do you have left to mess around? To spend time on truly unnecessary things? 
 

I feel like I don’t have time before I go forever… in this body at least. I want self - realization. And the funny thing is something I want from all my heart, which is death. “I” can’t want it. Therefore , I don’t think I want realization. But as a butterfly I am still going into this direction, to be eaten by a candle light. 
 

As consciousness I will just get back home, as ego… no compromise. 

I love my ego, I don’t want to die…

The good thing is that you will never die. there is no such thing as ego that can die and higher existence. It's just you, it just happens like in those movies where at the end you see that the main character was crazy and was imagining things. It is something very strange and very difficult to see. It is as if we had schizophrenia and the spiritual work was to try to cure it, when our sick mind is all the time doing its schizophrenic work.

Death is an elusion of consciousness you were never born, to begin with, and you can keep your ego but that is up to you as God.

"I"  dies every second as illusion ofc, because it does not exist in the first place. :) 

Interesting that you have mentioned schizophrenia, because I came across this explanation a day ago, heard it from my Master.

Right... because I, as God, want to sustain this common sense, keep sanity, therefore,the illusory identity is there.

The closer I got to ego death, the more fiercely my ego fought to stay alive. It was terrifying and disorienting. I remember feeling so shaken that I had to use both hands to raise a glass. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to safely drive to meet a friend for lunch.

Then I realized a couple of saving truths:

1) It wasn't necessary to push myself so hard. I deliberately put the brakes on my spiritual progress, not entirely, but enough to give myself some breathing room. When profound realizations occur, give yourself time to process them rather than feeling they have to be integrated immediately.

2) The ego is not the personality of your conditioned mind, but only identification with the personality. It is possible to be awake, and still honor the persona that your ultimate nature has chosen to enjoy, without being defined by it.

@Jehovah increases 🙏I used to think the conditioned mind was the enemy, but have realized it isn't actually evil. It is just trying to survive, as evolution trained it to do. Like a rampaging elephant that simply needs to be tamed. As long as you don't identify with it, but gently domesticate it, the mind can become a powerful ally. Who doesn't like riding on the back of an elephant, guiding it where you want to go? 🐘

Long ago my mind used to wander as it liked and do what it wanted. Now I can rule my mind as the mahout controls the elephant with his hooked staff.

When I have had moments of collapse of dualities, especially sober, lately, the idea that remains with me is that, like operating in the illusion of separation is a form of madness. but then you settle into the illusion and it is so definite and perfect that it seems sanity again. there is no such thing as ego and higher self, they are the same. In the end, you are always there, is the dualities that are false. like the schizophrenic in the film, when it ends, the viewer sees that he was imagining everything, nothing was real. the job is to see that on a daily basis. It seems impossible, it's very strange. we are designed for madness. but it's not real! We want the truth, so we have to break that illusion

Yes and you can keep your illusory identity as long as you wish because you are God

Bravo to this choice of mine, as a God, to keep this illusion. I love it. 😊

What was the most scary thing? To disappear?

^^^This!!! You got it!!! I am so happy to hear that some are getting it. Awakening is just escape from a false identity, which allows you to see it for what it is. You can still love and cherish it, while also realizing that it isn't you. It is your creation, this is freedom, this also frees you up to love all of your creation now since you realize you are immortal and that all of creation is equal to what you thought was self. The reason that self isn't you, is because all of creation is you. 

So beautiful when this is recognized...you get the peace that passes all understanding....what Allan Watts likes to call "phew." Because you realize...everything is alright. There are no problems....you just create problems through interpretation.

It was the primal fear of extinction, like standing at the edge of your grave and realizing you are only one step away from the dissolution of everything you used to believe was you. The thinner your personality becomes, the harder the conditioned mind fights for survival. As your attachments fray, there is an enormous ego backlash, at least there was for me. It will test the integrity of your insights to the brink of apparent death. The mind doesn't understand that it isn't truly being threatened, only identification with it. I still cherish my persona, and enjoy life through it, realizing that I created it for a reason.

@Razard86 Isn't it ironic that desperately clinging to the mind for meaning so severely limits your ability to enjoy life? The desire to find happiness outside of your true nature only leads to suffering. Realizing who you are liberates you to fully love yourself and all of life. You see yourself in every being, and it is beautiful.

I feel this is why nihilism and solipsism are so limiting. Realizing the void or believing "you" are the only actuality is only a partial awakening.  It disparages the universe as a useless illusion and disrespects the reason for its creation. It is all still Consciousness, enjoying the phenomenal drama of itself.

both one and the other are just ideas. the real enlightenment is not mental, it goes much further, and it is extremely rare. momentary awakening could be habitual. the mystical experience in which dualities collapse and you reveal yourself as the whole, btw I recently had a complete one without psychedelics. but this lasts a few minutes. then you go back to the dualities and go into the state of insanity completely and the awakening becomes an idea. another compartment of the ego.

well, this is always better than adopting it from having seen a video, although it really is similar. It doesn't matter if someone else tells you a story than telling it yourself. it's just a story. the awakening is now, and now I'm asleep. I need 2 hours of meditation to make the walls bit softer, and even that they are

I agree, but these ideas can be derived from a partial awakening. You can directly realize nothingness, or the Consciousness that you are, without the deeper realization that Consciousness is all, including the universe that it creates. The problem is, people may have these partial realizations and then build a theory on it, which locks them into a conceptual framework that prevents a full awakening.

awakening is difficult because we are a kind of energetic pattern with defined forms. there are many layers, all cemented together by fear. true awakening requires putting your entire structure in order, and undoing each of the knots. if this happens it is an energetic event, not a mental one. It is something impossible to conceive by the mind, as if it were the 5th dimension. the mind can elaborate ideas, understand, but the energetic structure will not change. psychedelics can, to a certain extent, and meditation and understanding the structures can too. progress is being made little by little, perhaps in a lifetime not of time. It is also coordinated with relative events.
