Even living Cosmic life, the life that sustains and orders the galaxies, the far shorter span of our human life must also be considered. Sort of an understatement really, as this is our current vehicle for evolution, essential for anything we must learn and accomplish.
What does it mean to live deathlessly? It means living with the utmost reverence and respect for life, especially our own, so that we are of greatest service to ourselves and others. Living Brahman, Totality, Cosmic life, also means that most of death has already been integrated into our lives, so that its eventuality doesn’t occupy the mind much.
Living Brahman, death is certainly never feared, for too much of it is already known.
Please let me explain – When we consider our mortality, we mourn the loss of ourselves in the world, our place in the web of our lives, everyone and everything with whom we actively share our love and compassion. No one ever wants to leave here, regardless the state of awareness.
That being said, living Totality allows us the experience to see the practical nature of our lives as deathless. Not only in the near perfect mental and physical health we attain, accompanied by exceptional longevity, though also in the transcendence of the Self, critically necessary for living Brahman.
As for ‘near perfect mental and physical health’ this comes along as a natural result of the clarity and purity of consciousness [living Brahman]. Each of the body’s cells is so purified and clarified, resulting in optimal functioning. This simply happens as a symptom of living Brahman. There is no more [Cosmic] energy wasted in our dynamic integration inside, outside, and ongoing. Friction-less flow. So that limitless Cosmic energy, instead of getting repressed and confused, spends its time bringing the perfect health and order of the Cosmos into the body and the surrounding environment.
Clean blood, clean cells, clean mind, clean and clear thoughts. This is how the body, dynamically recharged by Cosmic energy, creates a mind ever able to apprehend Totality, ever guided by Divinity.
Another essential piece of living a deathless life, living Brahman, is transcending the Self, the atman, our individuated Infinite soul. Just as we transcend our ego in order to gain Self awareness, so must the Self, perfected in Unity Consciousness, be transcended to live Brahman. This is what gives Brahman its deathless quality, for it conquers death by releasing the attachment to the Self.
Nothing changes. Neither the ego or Self go away entirely. We simply no longer identify with either, are no longer ultimately guided by such limited compasses. Living Brahman, living Totality is simply the state of ultimate freedom for a human being. Life goes on in its deathless state, allowing for clear vision to silently lead oneself and humanity, always in a successful and and life-supporting direction. Cosmic life continues, with no end in sight. 🙂
