The best advice i can give you, the only thing required to understand death besides open mindedness, is total acceptance of it. That means you must be
ready to die at any time without regrets, fear or doubt. It can be done but not if you are not fully devoted to it. I wouldnt say its easier than
becoming physically immortal though. Both are legends only a few will cross under impossible sets of circumstances...
Thankyou everyone for you impeccable beliefs and awareness.
I second the contents of this last quote. Acceptance of death is absolute mastery over it in the sense that you allow yourself to be influenced by
it's intrinsic meaning, as opposed to being fearful of it.
Death is given a stigma that causes it to appear to be a seperate quality of life, but it's actually a part of it. In that sense, it is a REQUIRED
phenomenon for the totality of life to occur. Immortal life = Life + Death
A personal message to the OP:
You are on to something! Your attitude is spot on in trying understand what direction to go. But you are
already there with your personal attitude. The idea that you should seek a life without fear of death is exactly what will lead you to your goal.
On addressing the "simple, but complex," idea's that others are saying that are already out there. The reason it's simple is because it has to do with
simply allowing your beliefs and attitude evolve and that by doing so you will allow a future where you can retain your memories after death.
The reason it's complex is because it's difficult to actually move forward in that direction because your own mind will limit you. In other words you
will not believe that what you want can happen so simply. And that dissallowance of your own dream to be believed in by you, will literally cause you
to chuckle at your presupposed "idiocy,"
An example is that you have already done so by deciding that you need to, "conquer," death, or that you need to get rid of it. Why couldn't you just
believe that you could be immortal? Why did you move towards needing to remove death from the equation? It's because if you don't, your logical mind
probably says something along the lines of, "well that's impossible." "that's stupid" "our physical lives matter"
Your slightly off track when you say, "death is the loss of fear of death"
And you will find that the more research you do, and the more people you meet with you will find that the answer generally lie in trusting in the
causal effects of the world you live in. Fear of the Causal effects enhances negative experiences in this world. Imagine what the opposite would
Imagine if people still died but no body cared or was fearful of their own death. No one would fear hunger, no one would steal, or punish, people
would be willing to die for others much more readily. The balance of the world could be restored instantly. So you see it's awareness of the LAW of
the life and death cycle, that lends its hand to peace and stability of the world. Death is not bad, it's LAW and it's beautiful. Some of the most
powerful emotions come from deathly situations.
LAW is one of the causal agreements made by our spirit before life and after death in a somewhat united time travelly-type of omnipresence
When I say spirit, I mean Christ, Buddha, Higher Mind, Oversoul. You name it.
It's discussed in many different ways but some of it's symbolism is attributed with:
The earth element.
It's placed at the end of the 4 element cycle, and as such it is meant to be a learning process. But we must keep in mind that though appearing
difficult, it's only so because the labyrinth of our minds removes the beauty from conscious s belief. It's this very beauty that the world sustains
You see the moment we are born into the physical world is the most intensely spiritual moment that we most likely ever have. And as we grow up, the
"struggle," is really a challenge to remain this child in our hearts and to follow what this childlike "law," asks us to do. You will notice that if
you follow this ,that acts of selflessness, bravery, uplifting kindness is usually will come from it. If we can do that, then we can remain children
for the rest of our lives. And we can die as children, without ANY FEAR.
When that happens, we may not actually die. But we may, as we have to trust that our higher spirit has plans for us our our physical mind does not
need to think of what our purpose is. If our higher mind wants us to assume a different role, then we may be reborn but someday remember who we used
to be, to the extent that it is useful for that role that we have chosen.
the short version
HOW TO MOVE FORWARD
Google Hermetic Knowledge
and read the author franz bardon
Study and learn the true face of martial arts(eg: sacrifice, empowerment)
Study and learn the true face of the new age movement (not the fear based, but understand what these people believe)
Study buddhism, hinduism, taoism, sufism, islam, etc.
find the motivating beliefs and look for links between them.
Learn what the philospher stone really is. Try and find your personal meaning of Christ.
Imagine that you are an intensely powerful, sacrificial, and altruistic time travelling spirit and that the personality you currently assume is a
piece of clothing to the TRUE YOU who lurks behind the flesh.
Try to imagine that when you die, your memories will become fused and added to the massive consciousness that you truly are while retaining their
autonomous nature and beauty(the beauty of your personal self will not be erased)
Try and learn that sacrifice is not sorrowful but that it is bravery, and that you are losing nothing. Your physical body is an outlet of infinite
fuel powered by your belief in your transcendental nature. Anything you lose is yours to give because the physical is only ecstasy to you, regardless
Learn truth that fear of death is not death. Loss of fear of death is not death
Death simply IS and it's your gift. You are infinite. So what is one life in the face of the millenia that you've lived? Go out, be a hero, give give
give and be free. The world is now your playground.
Self Empowerment. Compassion. Knowledge. Trust(in the cycle)
