I understand that what keeps most of us from truly LIVING is our innate fear of death. The soul, which is the true energy that keeps us alive, was never an earthly substance to begin with. Therefore, when it is time for it to exit our bodies, it goes back to its ethereal essence. The body, which originates from the elements within the earth, will never experience what we call death. Over 70% of the body is water, so the majority of our existence is liquid, and when our soul departs from us, our water essence returns back into the earth which takes it to the oceans then to the clouds then back to the earth to be consumed by other life forms whether it be plants, insects, or animals. The same water that exists within you today is the same water that was on this planet millions of years ago; no new water enters our planet from outer space. The flesh part of us will decompose and give life to the earth, maybe corn, maybe flowers, maybe grass, but the body gives life to new forms. So, once you can truly overstand that what we have been taught to be death is not as we perceive it to be, then we can finally shed our fears that paralyze us from actualize what we really want to be in life. After that, you have no other option but to LIVE.
