Some say that death is not the end but only the beginning. I say that death is indeed the end. But it is a self-destructive end. That is to say that death is the end of itself, or at least the illusion of. You see, death is the biggest misconception of life. Death is to birth as dry is to wet, but in both instances the substance merely changes form and location, it does not cease to exist entirely. Just as water cannot remain in place when it evaporates, so too the soul cannot remain bound to this earth once it releases itself of its bodily bonds. The life force within is then free to explore and experience the ethereal realms of existence which are open to it at that time. It will eventually experience change again and again, though not as extreme an idea as “death”, it merely unshrouds itself further and further until eventually the entire illusionary field in which it bathed has been let go until finally it “returns to source”, which only means it has dropped its subjective perspective and remembered the Truth of One.

“As you embrace the present and become one with it, and merge with it, you will experience a fire, a glow, a sparkle of ecstasy throbbing in every sentient being.

From December 27th to January 7th one hundred of us were observing noble silence (complete silence with no physical contact with others, not even eye contact!; and of course no contact to the outside world) while practising meditation for the majority of each day while having the daily food consumption (vegetarian) finished by noon, with the exception of a couple of fruit and a cup of lemon tea at 5pm.
This may not sound like most people’s idea of a fun time, nor the best way to spend the holidays, nor even the most ideal way to ring in the new year – well, for this moose, it was perfect.

If we are not happy with life, there are two options we can take.
One, make the necessary changes until you achieve that state of mind (peace, happiness, contentment).
Or, Two, leave things as they are and simply accept, with complete faith (in God, Life, The Divine Plan, The Universe, Destiny, etc.), that all is as it is meant to be.
Either way, change begins from within. Either way, a natural state of peace will prevail, and the temporary state of discontentment will soon pass.
