Anonymous asked: Explain god and death
are we flirting??
well i think of God as being the Source from which everything came, something ineffable and endless expressed as consciousness! it can’t be expressed in words, but we can know it intimately through love.
since the source of our consciousness is not, in my opinion, strictly neurochemical, whatever ecstatic spark exists within us while we’re alive will go on after our physical bodies decay. thinking about that reminds me not to be afraid of death.
"…to me death is not the end of life but the very crescendo of life, the very climax. It is the ultimate of life. If you have lived rightly, if you have lived moment to moment totally, if you have squeezed out the whole juice of life, your death will be the ultimate orgasm.
The sexual orgasm is nothing compared to the orgasm that death brings, but it brings it only to the person who knows the art of being total. The sexual orgasm is a very faint thing compared to the orgasm that death brings.
What happens in sexual orgasm? For a moment you forget that you are a body, for a moment two lovers become merged into one unity, into one organic union. For a moment they are not separate entities; they have melted into each other like two clouds which have become one.” ~ Osho
