Death and heaven have been the subjects of a long search and diverse findings. The seventeenth-century lens grinder in Holland and the twentieth-century teacher from India have made these reports:
As there is something which is conceived by a certain eternal necessity through the very essence of God; this something, which appertains to the essence of the mind, will necessarily be eternal.
Those are far astray from a true estimate of virtue who expect for their virtue, as if it were the greatest slavery, that God will adorn them with the greatest rewards; as if virtue and the serving of God were not happiness itself and the greatest liberty.
-- Benedict de Spinoza
Do you know what it means to die, not physically, but psychologically, inwardly?
You can't say to death, let me finish my job let me finish my book, all the things I have not done, let me heal the hurts which I have given others;--you have no time.
So can you find out how to live a life now, today, in which there is always an ending to everything that you began?
One has to find out for oneself what it means to die; then there is no fear, therefore every day is a new day--and I really mean this, one CAN do this--so that your mind and your eyes see life as something totally new. That is eternity.
-- J. Krishnamurti
