What is death? And how does one conquer it? Paradoxically it is the New Year that you are poised upon, that can help you understand this more deeply. Association is a potent subliminal tool, and by viewing death through the new year you may more easily inculcate that death is not an end, nor a final dissolution, but indeed synonymous with all that a new year means to you: beginnings, new birth, new life, new opportunities and all potential ahead for you to explore within a fresh time and space coordinate.

This is important because I am not speaking merely about physical death, but also ‘death’ in day-to- day terms: relationships breaking up, events terminating, careers coming to a grinding halt and thus any loss, ending, or change. And through understanding physical death in the ‘macrocosm’ one can better deal with its representations in the ‘microcosm’ of day-to-day life. This is really what spiritual knowledge is about: towards using the macrocosm to understand and thus enhance the microcosm. Knowledge is about you, and it must change your state of consciousness or it is meaningless.

And in the larger picture, death is not in death as you think it to be, because death in reality renders death null and void! Death kills death! Through death you will know that there is no death! And that it indeed becomes the doorway to eternal life and growth. You may thus use the association of death with your new year towards understanding this, and as the paradox of death and birth, end and new, loss and gain being one and the same starts to come alive within you, death will begin lose its sting. When you have truly imbibed this, and know deep in your core that all you have thought of, as death is in fact transformation, growth and opportunity for a new beingness, you may then wonder what is death? What is this concept known as death?

Gradually will it dawn on you, that if ‘death’ exists at all it is in stagnation, inertia and fear. The deeper implication of this understanding can be startling in your day-to-day terms. You will realize that the endings, losses and changes that you feared because they implied ‘death’ to you, are instead opportunities for growth. And that ironically it is your very resistance or fear of this extension of self that is the true ‘death’. You will comprehend that ‘ death’ is in what may appear a comfort zone, but is, if closely examined the ‘death’ of resistance. You will grasp that death is in your patterns, death is in your conditioning and death is in your reluctance or refusal to move on, accept change, expand or experiment! Having turned ‘death’ of the macrocosm on its head so to say, it dramatically changes your view (and thus the way you would deal with them) of ‘deaths’ in the microcosm; and thus you are motivated to conquer fear, reduce stagnation and overcome your resistances. This is what conquering death really means: not that there will be no so called ‘death’ (changes, losses, endings) but that you embrace them as new life, opportunities and growth.

Let me tell you a beautiful story to portray the deeper implications of ‘death’. Brahma, the creator was looking down at downtrodden humanity and wondering where he had gone wrong! Saraswati, in her inherent wisdom, points out that his problem was simply in forgetting ‘death’ and sagaciously explains to him that ‘death’, through its constant opportunity for new life and eternal growth, is what will allow his creation to be infinitely joyous. Thus convinced does he create the maiden ‘mrityu’ to confer death periodically to all on earth. However when mrityu is informed of her purpose to be created, she is both perturbed and reluctant to don her mantle. Again it is Saraswati who steps in to explain to her that as death she would indeed be bestower of infinite life and thus eternal mother- and mrityu becomes Ma Kali. If you ponder on this a while, you will understand that ‘death’ was introduced, as opportunity for infinite growth and eternal expansion and it is through death, that creation is!

Use the power of association to become comfortable with so-called death so that you may not link death only with the horrific endings of life. Become aware that you live in a field of energy, which is in a constant state of flux and you are literally surrounded by death, or new life, however you choose to view it. Everything around you is constantly dying or being reborn moment-to-moment! See it in nature: the sun setting to rise, the flowers growing into fruit, the seasons changing. See it through biology: the cells within your body are constantly changing and ‘dying’ so that physical renewal may be. See it through quantum physics, which explains how your very universe pulses in and out to eternally exist. If you think of it deeply you may also see that ‘God’-All That Is- dies every moment to eternally ‘Be’! This is indeed how ‘All That Is’ can be ‘more’ and how a state of ‘perfection’ can constantly ‘further itself’! Through what you call death!

Another beautiful association with death is the concept of the ‘small death’, which refers to the physical orgasm. Why? Because it the ‘death’ of the ego (implying a surrender of the resistance of ego) that enables the orgasm; but also because the energies being harnessed, collected, hoarded through the motion and experience of the creative act must be released to enjoy the bliss of orgasm. At a deeper level this has a very important message because you usually link fear and stagnation with ‘negative’ situations. However it is equally vital to move on from any pinnacles you may reach, from those phases when dreams have come true. This is when the most lethal stagnation can take place, and like in any orgasm, it is only by letting go can you experience further bliss. Understanding death paradoxically helps you live a better life
