My Intention

All life form ends. Even the form of the Earth itself will end. In recognizing the beginning and ending of even the most monumental of life forms, we can also recognize what holds it all: what holds that which we appear in, that which we live because of, and that into which we–as life forms–disappear; into which the whole of creation appeared and into which it all eventually disappears.

The great benefit of our human life form is that we can turn our consciousness back toward what is present in all life forms. That is, of course, life itself. You do not have life form without life.

But what is life, and is its existence independent of its form? When you and I die, when our bodies drop, when a mountain returns to dust, does life die?

If you ask these questions very deeply of yourself, there is the possibility of discovering what is immortal. Life–life before even life energy–is immortal.

It is my intention that we discover this field of life that is the same in each of us. It is my intention that this be discovered so fully that nothing can dislodge it. No amount of trouble, no amount of disease, no amount of pain can dislodge the deepest peace of realizing yourself to be one and the same as life itself.

Thank you for your comment. May I add that what's in the Heart of All Beings, that's Here to be discovered, counts and swallows all our deeds, and the worldly life.
More and more and better and better will never satisfy anyone, only on a temporary basis. Perhaps Greed is a desperate attempt to grabb what we already have, but since what we already have can be 'overlooked', all these other attempts run people until they Stop.
Much Gratitude and Love

wow, what an article. wonderful. sad we all know we will die sooner or later but the materialistic greed of wanting more is always there. we cannot take anthing with us where we go after our life on earth. only our good thoughts,good words & good deeds count. Lord Zarthustra preached that.

We live and we die. Life and death are cycles.

Hi Gangaji:
I know so deeply in my being this field of existence that we all are.... yet find there is a gravitational pull to live from the wounded self... to think this self separate and cast out from itself and from its world. I continue to deepen, and trust that I will get out of the way and let this field "have me". Always... Chelle Esha Nagle
