26. Transcendence of Death Through Acceptance

Beloved Dhyana Siddhi, Love. Fear cripples consciousness. And, fear is the source of unconsciousness. That is why without transcending fear, no one can attain to full consciousness. But what is fear? Fear is awareness of death without knowing what death is! Fear exists in the gap between you and your death. And if there is no gap, no space, then there is no fear. Do not think death as something outside you. Because it is not. And do not think death as something in the future. Because it is not. Death is within you. Because death is the other side of life. Life cannot exist without death. They both belong to the same energy as positive and negative poles. So do not identify yourself with life, because you are both. The identification with life creates the gap. And, death has nothing to do with future it is always here and now. Every moment it is. And, when one ceases to regard it as something outside oneself and, so to speak, draws it into his consciousnessand assimilates the idea of it, one is completely changed. He is in all truth, born again. And, then, there is no fear. Because then there is no gap. 15-5-1971 (To: Ma Dhyana Siddhi, New York, U.S.A)
