The keys to Life and Death lie in our realisation of Existence and of Absolute Truth – of the full embrace, the two sides of the one coin called ”All and Nothing”.
In the surrender to Life, we are unbuttoned and unbound by the illusory limitations of the confined Life. In the surrender to pure Being, the purification of our energetic system happens and our true potential is released and revealed through the drop of limitations in our mind. This is reflected across all of our Being and understanding (realisation) into our own true nature.
We find the Key to Life in the realisation of our Self. Of Self. Of Everything, and the uncovering of the ever expanding Life, which is pure consciousness itself.
Once the key to Life is found, so is the true nature of our Self. Life – consciousness – is Self.
In holding the key to Life, we become the masters of our own cultivation, which allows the constant injection and regulation of the Life force and thereby removes any pause or break between periods of entering the flame of purification. A purification, which at the outset, removes only the misunderstandings of identification within the individual human being, but in the longer run allows for the perpetual uncovering of the True identity of our mutual but individual Self. Of God.
It opens the doors to living Life according to a higher state of consciousness, in moving the entire existence out of the old house confined by walls, ceilings, floors and doors of belief, and into a wide-open palace, surrounded by endless vastness in wide open mountain landscape, which from there is determined as the base and outset of one’s Being. As home.
It removes the option of falling out of pure Being, which is a plummet to the ground by the re-rise of identification due to fear. The stabilization in/as pure Being removes the option of shrinking back into identification and identified states of separation. The lowest one can drop becomes on the butt of the marble-tiled floor of the palace – all stays wide-open and any fear is burned immediately in the fire of pure Life.
The key to Death is determined and attained by the total meeting with Space. The empty nature of All things is realised through the Real awakening and in the total surrender to the fact of the empty nature of all things.
It is not just a revelation of the empty nature of all things, but a complete slide-out of ones perception, which removes the ability to perceive things, and reveals the black void only, which is the empty space of non-existence. It leaves no phenomena and no experience within our scope of perception, but reveals the highest Truth which is prior to God – prior to existence and the source of all Life.
The keys to Life and death are handed over in the complete eradication of fear for both pure Life – our Self – and of non-existence.
By the very definition of Life and death, all movement through time stops to the fact of no process. The Life which usually rises beyond our own control, becomes infinitely held in the palm of your Heart’s hand. Love becomes the very core and Beingness of your Self.
The death which usually transports any Life, Love, Being out of existence and back, becomes determined by the key held in your other hand – the key to death, which immediately translates the appearence of Life into its Source.
It reveals the transportation of information into- and out of existence – the very ground of Creation – of manifestation – on its deepest levels. It uncovers the logic of appearence as well as disappearence which overrules the logic of limitation in/to existence.
As the totality of the display (of Emptiness, Life and Individuality) falls between our hands, without confinement, into openness and learning, so do the secret teachings of Life unfold.
In the loss of egoic energy and without any leftovers of identification, in the sense of its clinging to existence, we appear as- and through the very gentle sliding between all aspects of Reality. From the very Source of Space and its inherent emptiness, over to our appearence as the totality of All Life, without any perception of boundaries making a separation in Life, and down into the appearance of our very definite, deeply intimate and individual Being.
While the contracted mind doesn’t allow the individual incarnation to be anything but an appearance of a constructed reality – a constructed Life – the Real embrace of integrity reveals our small (compared to the vastness of total Being) yet Big Being, which stretches the vastness of the Void (of Space) and the Wide ocean of Life all the way down and into Being, where the very integration of true knowledge happens in the bending and mending of our conscious and grounded mind, and therein our human appearance. We become transparent with mirror-like quality – a material which reflects but has no substance or form in itself.
The Key to Life is the foundation for a happy Life. The key to Death is the foundation for a happy death. The ongoing expansion of Life happens through the breath of consciousness – the flipping appearance of Life and death, but in the attainment of these keys within Being, no process remains to be seen. No pain of ”either happening” arises – and both are realised to just be displays of existential character – not real, no big deal.
The Life which rises is just as easily transported out of existence. That which ceases does so with the sweet taste of non-existence, and becomes nothing but a display of peace.
With these keys, we are truly lifted out of the confinement of the illusion of time, birth and death – beginnings and endings – with all of our Being. We are lifted into a new and higher existential reality – a deeper and more profound relationship with the Absolute and its finality of death, but in that also takes the seat on the dragon of Life.
In terms of perception and operation, the revelation of these keys holds in them the very total (yet always deeper merging) display of reality. It is the disappearence of any compound in existence, as beyond it, and yet the total appearance of the alignment between everything and nothing.
To live as This Knowledge, we must die to every old way, every assumption, all guessing and any conclusion. Then we are lifted; Above and beyond – to live with and as an entirely different reality, in which limits and the ability to be stuck anywhere in the equation of life or death is gone.
Tantra – the merging
The keys to Life and Death are the realization of the feminine and masculine essence. The fact of their merging happens through skillful application of the keys to/as the process of Life’s unfolding.
The result is tantra in its purest and most efficient function as becoming happens into a solid incarnation as Black Light – the ultimate unity of life and death.
The normal understanding of tantra carries the idea of man and woman, but the actual display of tantra rests solely upon the internal realisation of both aspects within one’s own sphere of Being.
When one has found- and knows profoundly one’s Self as well as the Source of one’s Self, this opens the door to the effortless cultivation. It becomes a totally frictionless movement, which constantly reveals deeper and deeper incarnation through the human vessel, the fact of Life’s transparency to the Black Void.
For the merging, which is the happening of tantra, one needs only realise both aspects of reality – existence and non-existence – Life and death – Consciousness and Awareness.
In the realisation of both these aspects, the key to creation (beyond identification and straight from pure Knowing beyond time) is revealed and added to the integrated knowing, round knowledge and infinite learning within Being. From within one’s Self.
Without the obstruction to either life or death, the total rest is possible in Brahman. Without reaching a limit, Life is seamlessly invited to unfold as the very core happening of further integration, without any conclusion about either Space or Life.
Creation happens of/as disclosure of All wisdom within One’s very own Being – completely devoid of belief in that Being, but in the embrace of it nonetheless.
In one sense, one could say that it is only a/the revelation of our true nature as God. It cannot be stated more accurately.
The Lived Life – the standing incarnation
In the embrace and realization of this knowledge, we are invited to live from an entirely different (than normal) state of Being. It is a state of heightened consciousness and a higher vibration of Life, which lifts and bring oneself into a much higher state of Being.
The invitation itself stands as an internal agreement to live from and in a state of total surrender, which replaces the old (however beautiful and cozy) 3 plane villa placed amongst other houses in the city, with an actual palace in the mountains. The halls in the palace are wide open, large, high ceilings. The walls beautifully decorated. But the palace is empty. We cannot go there as a team.
Every relation can remain. They will seem un-touched. Beautiful and alive even. But they will not be your base and place of Home. The need to belong, one must give up, to enter the spheres of reality and higher grounds of Being through absolute transcendence of the human realm.
