Death is a troubling subject for most. It signifies an end. It signifies a complete end, with no more hope in sight. Death is permanent. It can be scary. It can be utterly sad.
These are things we are all aware of, but in my own mind, I see things a little differently. Death, is an end, but it is also a beginning. It brings about change. Death is the ultimate change. It can be troubling, but it is also intriguing. Completion for the ego of the being involved can be sad. But I see hope in sight. I see permanence through memories and I see permanence of the soul. The thought of losing our ego or our individual self can be scary. But that permanence in the collective unconscious is still there, and though we see our ego as important, it is not going to last forever, nor should it. It’s just like everything else in life- it is created, it molds itself and lives, and then it dies. But that soul behind the ego, that divine life embodied inside of it, goes on. It is brought back to the source and then shifted towards another life, whether on this planet or another. The energy that soul embodies will always be connected with the other energies it touched. Though temporary, always together. The great contradiction that hides behind all truths.
The ego cries out in misery over the death of a loved one. The soul cries out in joy for its new journey and new beginning- for their birth. We cannot completely separate from our ego while embodying this physical form. That is not the point. The point is to enjoy our individuality, and enjoy the great variety of life, and realize that we’re all connected despite how different we may be. We are not an island. We are all, meshed together, a universe. Life. Light manifested in the great abyss. We are beautiful. One day everyone will realize how perfect we truly are. And that we can manifest our own paradise together. We are all divine.
