I speak about death as one who knows the matter from both the outer world experience and the inner life expression: there is no death period. There is, as you know, entrance into fuller life. There is freedom from the handicaps of the fleshy vehicle. The rending process so much dreaded does not exist, except in the cases of violent and sudden death; and then the only true disagreeables are an instant and overwhelming sense of imminent peril and destruction, and something closely approaching an electric shock. No more. For the unevolved, death is literally a sleep and a forgetting, for the mind is not sufficiently awakened to react, and the storehouse of memory is as yet practically empty. For the average good citizen, death is a continuance of the living process in its consciousness and a carrying forward of the interest and tendencies of the life. His consciousness and his sense of awareness are the same and unaltered. He does not sense much difference, is well taken care of, and oft is unaware that he has passed through the episode of death. For the wicked and cruelly selfish, for the criminal and for those who live for the material side only, there eventuates the condition which we call ‘earth-bound’.
