Hey Tomis - Your position is v. much in line with that of Seth -- the entity channled by Jane Roberts in the 60's-early 80's -- whom many consider
the 'founder' of the whole New Age movement and the first to coin the term "You create your own reality". While it does not seem like that was
either his/her intent the result remans the same.
Anyway, to paraprahse, his position was essentially that there is no reason to be afraid of death, because you do it every night when you go to sleep.
Meaning that we leave our bodies and travel to various dimensional realms where we commune, learn and assist others. The way he states it is that --
as you said -- everything is energy and our cells have enough of their own reality and sense of purpose to function for a limited period of time w/o
our focus on creating a coporeal being.
An intersting side note is that he says sleeping for more than six hours at a time actually causes the body to begin to deginerate -- which I thought
was fascinating as studies recently came out (from some v. confounded researchers).
Although it’s a common belief that 8 hours of sleep is required for optimal health, a six-year study of more than one million adults ages 30 to 102
has shown that people who get only 6 to 7 hours a night have a lower death rate. Individuals who sleep 8 hours or more, or less than 4 hours a night,
were shown to have a significantly increased death rate compared to those who averaged 6 to 7 hours.
His assertion is that we need to learn our own personal symbology -- i.e. Jung cannot do it for you -- to translate what it is we are doing and
learning in that multi-dimensional state. But he also says something akin to "there are also deep parts of the well we drink from that cannot ever
be remebered in this waking reality".
I too could go on and on, but want to hear what others have to say on this fascinating topic. Cheers!
