News Flash - Death is Not Real
A Course in Miracles taught me everything I need to know about life and woke me up to understand Death is not real. God is Life and all encompassing. Life has no opposite. Life is life.
Our fears of death symbolize a fear of God. It is impossible for the creative force of the cosmos to let it all end in dust. God is Love. Love is creation not destruction. The concept of death denies the Truth of Life and is simply impossible. God is everything or God is nothing. Then what comes after life? Another life.
The fear of death is based on the belief that we are all just bodies. God is our source and we cannot be different than our source. If God is Life and God is Love, then we are Life and we are Love. We get caught up in our bodies thinking this is who we are. If you study A Course in Miracles, your mind will reverse thinking and you will know that we are not just bodies. We are spirit – we are ideas in the Mind of God. God did not make death because as pure and eternal Love, He could never make fear.
When we reach this knowledge and discipline our thinking, we can see that this idea of death is the basis of the world and it’s ending. This is all an illusion.
God is life. "…because God did not make death, and does not delight in the death of the living. For God created all things so that they might exist; the generative forces of the world are wholesome, and there is no destructive poison in them, and the dominion of Hades is not on earth." - Wisdom of Solomon 1:13-14
Death is not God. "God does not delight in the death of the living." "God created all things so that they might exist," not to die. God's answer to death is God's answer to everything -- Life.
