Two of my family members from the same extended family unit passed away this year. Both “deaths” left many of my remaining family members feeling sad, confused and angry… Searching for a sense of understanding about these occurrences, I turned to my Spiritual Teacher, Dr. Roger B. Lane, and His Enlightened Talk #A210 “’Death’ And Its Unveiling: A Participatory Satsang”. This Talk clearly and powerfully explains the True meaning of ‘Death’ and helped me to lift above my emotions and stay Focused with Spirit many times during the past few months.
In the Talk, Dr. Lane speaks on two main topics. The first is the True meaning of ‘Death’ and the second is how we as Hu-mans in the physical world can respond to ‘death’ in our life.
The first topic, the True meaning of ‘Death’, is the most important part of the Talk. For in the Talk, Dr. Lane explains that ‘Death’, as we commonly understand it, does not exist. We are Souls and the Soul within us is Immortal. And in fact, we have it backwards on this planet; this life that we lead is Spiritually called Death and it is our Responsibility – our ONLY job – to use this ‘dead’ life to Resurrect to Life Eternal.
In other words, the purpose of Hu-man life is to Know ourSelves as Spirit and the only way to do that is to take Initiation Into The Sound Current and Ride this Current to Eternal Life. This is reflected in a Bible quote Dr. Lane often refers to from Matthew 8:22, in which Jesus the Christ said, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead” as He was referring to those who believe in the illusion of “death”.
Dr. Lane says this again in the Tools For Living Free #36 “Dealing With ‘Death’”,
“…part of our Divine Inheritance is that we ‘defeat death’. How do we ‘defeat death’? By coming to know our Soul directly, know ourSelves as the Eternal One and live in the Teachings of the Path Of Soul Transcendence, Which, basically, teach us to be Present with the Lord, God and surrender everything that isn’t His, that isn’t Eternal.”
The second topic in the Talk deals with how we can deal with and respond to a loved one who has died. Dr. Lane talks about mourning and the importance of honoring being in the physical, but that mourning is best done from a Loving place. This means moving into Appreciation for the time shared together. Dr. Lane says, “…how about a celebration because it was you the agreement was with to be a “sister”, “child”, etc. You were chosen and got to participate in this person’s Love and Light!”
Dr. Lane continues by talking about the purpose of the body, which is to “last only as long as the Soul needs” and that everything is done in perfect timing and is Spiritually correct. This means that when someone dies the Soul within that person has agreed to the time, place, mode of ‘death’ and nothing is being ‘done’ to that person. The Talk reminds us to let go of any judgments we may have about ‘death’ or the person who has ‘died’ and to see every situation in our life, even ‘death’, as an Opportunity to be Present with the Spirit we are.
Finally, for those who struggle with letting go of the loved one who is no longer in the physical, Dr. Lane suggests using the Two-Part Release Technique to be free of attachments like this:
- 1. Say within yourSelf, “Lord, God send me Your Light! Please take from me any emotional needs I may have or want the deceased to fulfill.”
- 2. Tell yourSelf, “(your name) it’s OK to let it go! ”
- 3. Ask Spirit to fulfill that longing for the person or whatever needs you are insisting that person fulfill for you.
