“The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:26
The time is upon us when our collective consciousness transforms, so that we as a creation no longer pass through the door of death but the door of life, ending the illusion and awakening into the real. We awaken to the truth that death is only an illusion allowing the reality of eternal life to fade in all around us.
The foundational lie upholding this illusion is that Death, not God, rules all. Death has the final word in every life by proclaiming: “Thou shalt die!” Who can escape? Its will is unassailable, exalting itself above God’s will that none should die. (John 3:16) But death goes further and stands in the holy place presenting itself as our savior.
Most of us equate death with a release from suffering. We believe death frees us from the travails of illness and pain, ushering us into a place of peace and comfort. It promises to take away our unbearable burdens, worries, guilt and fears. Death is so deceptive and its call as savior so strong that some take their own life that death may save them now.
Let’s be clear, death is not a savior. The way out of suffering, fear and all other illusions isn’t through one’s belief in death’s offerings of peace and comfort. To desire death in any way, shape or form is to choose to put our will and faith in an illusion; for desiring death as a means to escape from any type of suffering sustains the illusion that both death and suffering are real. Release from this illusionary dream isn’t by being separate from our bodies (which include the reality that surrounds them). Our bodies simply reflect our beliefs. They can reflect the illusion of finiteness and death or the Truth of immortality and life. It’s our state of consciousness that shapes energy into its reflective substance and form. What we hold as truth in our minds manifests in our reality. What we believe determines whether we sleep in an illusionary dream of death or awaken to eternal life.
We subconsciously accept that we enter eternal life through death. It’s the ultimate deception because in eternal life the concept of anything dying… ever… isn’t true. Ever. We awaken from this illusion of death and suffering as our faith realigns to this Truth: death is not real. One milestone of this passage of faith is that we no longer desire or put faith in the promised comforts of death in any of its many forms, but instead give our faith to Truth. As we choose to believe death is not real and that God is our only comfort and savior, we awaken and perceive the eternally open door into the Kingdom. This door to life, which is our eternal and ever-present oneness with the divine love of God, remains hidden beneath the dream of death.
As our faith aligns to the Truth of eternal life, we encounter the temptation of death anytime we believe we are not, right now, in God’s perfect care. We are faced with a choice: we can give our faith to Truth or let it remain in the illusion. As the Spirit aligns us to Truth and we put our faith in that Truth, we trust in God’s perfect care and that his divine love never fails. We let go of the idea that death or anything else rescues us from suffering. We realize belief in death or any of its forms only keeps us bound in an illusionary reality.
This awareness reveals that the reality of eternal life, peace, joy, and immortal harmony is ever-present. As we begin to perceive beyond the illusion of death, an awareness of our oneness with God reveals the Kingdom of God is at hand, dissolving the illusion. As we perceive the Kingdom within, we perceive it without. It’s always been, but the illusion of death has hidden it.
Therefore, our escape from the illusion and into life is found in awareness of our oneness with God, not death. The Spirit of God is the eternal living energy of divine love, which extends to all and gives His life to all. Being a part of God’s eternal life we could never die. If we believe in death, we choose the illusion. If we believe in God’s eternal life, we choose Truth. We can’t choose both.
Eternal and unfailing divine love is the Spirit of the Father; the Savior that Jesus Christ extended into creation. In the illusion, death stands as a savior. As we become aware of our oneness with the Spirit of the Father and let go of death’s illusion by no longer putting our faith in it, we begin reflecting eternal life and shine in the likeness of the Father. As the Spirit expels illusionary thoughts of death, our mind becomes a sanctuary (the holy place) for the holy thoughts of God. Our will is joined to God’s and in this oneness our desires of eternal life are manifested. This transformation is a rebirth, from the dream-like “reality” of the finite, into the true reality of the infinite.
“And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” ~ John 11:26
