(Notes from liner)
Death is not the end
Death is rather just a change in perception
When you see that you are not the body, and that the body comprises only a small fraction of the aggregate of your awareness, then death is nothing to fear. After bodily death occurs, you shall float above. A sense of bewilderment will consume you, but you will feel no pain. All will go dark. Spirits will appear to you in their benign and peaceful aspect. Their light will shine upon you. Wonderful and delightful though they are, they can also appear to you as demons. If you cannot separate yourself from your earthly attachments, they will begin to tear your former life apart. They will threaten to bar your passage because you�ve turned a deaf ear to the saving truths that have been whispered to you from your beginning. All these forms are strange to you, they will terrify you, and yet it is you who have created them. They are but the contents of your own mind. If at this point you should manage to understand this, then the demons are really angels freeing you from your former self. Do not give in you your fright. Do not run away. Serenely contemplate the spectacle before you. Overcome your fear. Once this passes you will then fall upward into a void, traveling through eternity. You will move from one world to another. You will move from the physical to the causal. From matter into pure energy. As you pass into the inner worlds, through tunnels, across starless universes, you might feel loneliness and despair. Do not fret! Have faith. At this moment the light will surround you, and the sum of all your experiences on earth come to the surface. Try to submerge yourself in that light, giving up all belief in a separate self and all attachment to your illusory ego. In the mind, all the impressions of past deeds are stored. You will become absorbed in these experiences. You will experience every pain you have caused as well as all the joy that you have given. Every image that you have collected on earth will be displayed before you. They will appear to you swifter than lightning. No judgment will be made. You must return to equilibrium before you can ascend. Along the path of your ascension you will be reunited with souls who have passed before you. They will impart wisdom and guidance if needed. The greatest power in the universe is the power of unity, of oneness. All other powers are secondary. It is the only power that outlasts death. Attraction and aversion create a sense of self. There is no self. There are just thoughts. When you die, all the ideas of self will go away. The physical mind dissolves, but the overriding state of mind remains. What we do in this life is not futile
Our practice in this life will assist us in our next life
Death is not the end
