Die Before You Die

One of the most powerful spiritual practices is to meditate deeply on the morality of physical forms, including your own. This is called: Die before you die. Go into it deeply. Your physical form is dissolving, is no more. Then a moment comes when all mind-forms or thoughts also die. Yet your true nature is still here – the divine presence that you are. Radiant, fully awake. Nothing that was real ever died, only forms and illusions. The realization of this deathless dimension is your true nature.

Life’s Lessons

Whenever anything negative happens to you, there is a deep lesson concealed within it, although you may not see it at the time.

Non forgiveness is often towards yourself or another person, but it may just as well towards any situation or condition – past, present, or future – that your mind refuses to accept. There can also be non forgiveness with regards to the future. This is the mind’s refusal to accept uncertainty, to accept that the future is ultimately beyond our control. So forgiveness is to relinquish and so to let go of grief.

It happens naturally once you realize that your grievance serves no purpose except to strengthen a false sense of self. So, forgiveness is to offer no resistance to life – to allow life to live through you.
