Frequently Asked Questions of Life

I.S. Mudugula then takes up the death.

Question: How do I deal with my own approaching death?

Answer: Luckily, you don't have to deal with it.  It will deal with you!
Levity aside, since you are already know that what dies is the body
and neve you, there is no reason to worry.  It happens when it happens
and is totally inconsequential.  Awareness is destructible even when the
flesh is destroyed, as is its nature. Individual awareness merges into universal awareness, to accomplish which we arrie for myriad lifetimes.
At each death, we get one lifetime nearer to the Goal.

In all these and related concerns, the one thing to keep in mind is to remain totally objective and not be involved, i.e. not to think or feel in any way that something is or is not happening to you.  You are above it all, no matter what happens.  Not only that, ou have control over death, despite what it may like.  By this, is not meant that you can control the events or the results of actions, but that you can try to not let anything afffect the core your Being. In fact, that is the 'Power of Now' that we are talking about. It may be ironic to say that everything is evanescent except Now, because every moment is fleeting including the present one. But by now we know that we do not mean the present moment -- or any moment - by Now. Now is what may be called the forever moment without beginning or end, that is subsumed by the timeless present.  If this all sounds gibberish think again.  There is only universe kinshipmwith the universe.  There are no questions and answers.  When you stop asking, you will start knowing.  When you stop doing, you are being.
