The Question For You Is…
DO YOU SURVIVE DEATH? After your life is over, do you then earn the right to a period of R&R in the ‘Afterlife’ before you are once again reincarnated – or is it the case that when your life ends you are immediately reincarnated, as was the storyline in ‘A Tale About Reincarnation?’ Or worse still, is this a onetime lifetime experience – and then you do not exist anymore?
Who knows – you may say ‘who cares?’ The person you think you are certainly doesn’t continue after death – for that person never existed in the first place. The person you think you are is only a creation of your mind. So why bother being curious? What difference could it possibly make?
It makes a lot of difference. It’s important to ask yourself these questions because there is an Intelligence within you that does survive death – that does want to learn (or remember). And you have all the wherewithal to become conscious of that Awareness. Awareness is not a gift that some of us have and some of us don’t.
It is not an attribute that you must earn through some sort of mental effort (deep thinking, meditation, etc.) Awareness is your birthright and your inheritance. You have it right now. It is not so much a question of whether you have it, but of whether you are using it.
All of us have the gift of Awareness. Yet not all are aware that they are Aware. When you are aware that you are Aware, your experience of Awareness shifts to a new level – you become Consciously Aware. This is why you are reading this post today. You called this forth, out of your own inner Awareness. This is You, waking you up.
Questions like, ‘do I survive death’ are important to consider in your ‘waking up process’. Realize that the known self (the person you think you are) cannot find reality. The personal self with which you are so familiar with can never rise above its own level.
But by becoming Consciously Aware of yourself. By being curious about everything that is occurring in your life – by questioning every perplexity – without trying to find the answers – allows the Intelligent Awareness within to answer those questions for you…
