Like the magick of Kali we all experience the act of creation through life and death.

Death is the ultimate teacher by which we all learn.

I only expect those of you who have experienced death to understand .

Only those of you who have experienced the song of death know what I am talking about.

The song of death reaches into your soul.

I'm almost there.

I'm here waiting..

The teacher is here..

Ayahuasca (UK /ˌaɪjəˈwæskə/; US /ˌaɪjəˈwɑːskə/), also commonly called yagé (/jɑːˈheɪ/ or /jæˈheɪ/), is an entheogenic brew made out of Banisteriopsis caapi vine and the Psychotria viridis leaf.[1] The brew is used as a traditional spiritual medicine in ceremonies among the Indigenous peoples of Amazonian Peru, many of whom say that they received the instructions in its use directly from the plants and plant spirits themselves.

What's with all this death?

There is no lesson to be learned when someone dies outside of watching all the information and personality that person was disappear from this earth.

I dont know if that understanding makes a persons life more or less valuable..just sort of the reality of the situation though.

As the saying goes, when a person dies, a library burns.

As far as on the other side of this, if there is something more afterwards, we shall see, but its not like many are coming back from the grave after a few years in and discussing the awesomeness of the afterlife...we have only glimpses that may or may not be something real.

What about the Rephaim class of giants where the word is linked to 'Eternally Dead'.

Death cannot destroy them when they are either wraiths or banshees.

Death, ironically shows that Life is eternal and Unified.
Even to say that death "teaches" may be inaccurate, because the experience is direct.
So rather than "learning", we are "knowing" in death;
The lesson is more a promise than a teaching, ultimate because it is Truth.

In Death, there is only our Being to experience, because the brain is gone, along with the individual one "thought" they are.

I've often thought that, if a guy dies in the middle of the woods with some notes, and people tried to piece them together to find meaning, they can't, they'd be...well...dead wrong...it could be a diagram, it could be scribblings, he's just gone, and most likely at peace, so...what tha hay. Think of how many pieces of detritus people tried to link up together that had no significance...we have no real way of knowing, the info is just gone, and it's more for other people, half the time they're wrong, than it is for the guy. I think people in that case people are just stuck with "it is ok." Death happens life is unpredictable, but life right now is NOW.

Fear is the ultimate teacher, and people fear death more than anything else, though you can not learn and go mad just the same. What springs from this madness, well we call that religion.

We'd be stuck not knowing so I guess it doesn't matter.

fear is a survival instinct to be used to survive.

I don't consider irrational beliefs to be teachings, sorry. It's definitely not the sane way to go about accepting death.

I read Graham Hancocks excellent description of what he went through when he tried it out. I don't know if I would be so keen because it can have a dodgy effect on the bowels etc whilst taking it. However I must admit to my curiosity being spiked on this one. The Shaman describe a world full of benevolent very large serpents which immediately connects my mind to the serpent in Eden etc whom was benevolent in the original story about it.

I don't like your like "I am almost there". I hope we are not about to loose you also, I enjoy the Little Blue Owl on here (can't remember his name just now) who is suffering from a brain tumour and loosing one is bad enough.

I looked at your heading and my immediate thought was - well its difficult to learn from death until you have died yourself. Some people look terrified or really surprised whilst others look serene. What we do know is that death sucks the life out and leaves the shell we all loved etc

I don't consider opinion words to be end all and be all statements so I guess I'd have to disagree with you there (in other words it's your opinion.)

"Difficult to learn from death unless you have died yourself".. is a good way of putting it.
