14. Death Must not be Feared
Whatever has happened pleasant, or unpleasant, never try to hide it from the child so that the child would be seemingly protected from an unnecessary suffering and pain. It is necessary to explain to the child in a language he could understand life and allow him to live this very life up to his understanding. And it is the role of the parents to expand his understanding. A child being raised with love and sincerity shall start asking such questions that sooner or later shall bring the issue that even the parents themselves do not dare to answer: Why has the grandmother or the grandfather died? What can the parents tell the child if they do not know themselves why the grandmother or the grandfather has died? Why do people die? Thus, they try to protect, and in a very distorted way to protect, their child from all such phenomena that, according to their understanding, are tormenting and painful even to them nothing speaking about their little beloved one.
This is the biggest mistake that is being made by the developed, from the material standpoint, humanity. No one can ever escape the experience of one‘s material death. Therefore it is necessary to know its meaning and purpose. It was for this bigger enlightenment of man that I also came to this wonderful world of yours two thousand years ago to enlighten and comfort people rather than to redeem people‘s sins and scare them when they saw how I was tortured to death by my beloved creatures – my brethren. I came to this world to bring light, to bring light about the Source and
However, I had to adjust myself to the-then concepts of the Jews. Even though the Jewish fathers and mothers did love their children so much like nowhere else in the world, they treasured a family life so highly like nowhere else at that time still even the Jews were afraid of death and let tears roll down once death visited their families. I desired to provide them a bigger light and to show the way to reach it. But the dominant rituals of that time had managed, generation upon generation, to control and subdue the sub-consciousness of the Jews so much that my light frightened them, and they did obey the dead rituals devised by the rabbis and Pharisees rather than the liberating good news – the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man – I brought in.
And this darkness constrained by rituals and a service to them like slaves do not allow even modern families – already in the twenty-first century – to feel a liberating impact of my gospel – the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. And without this impact it is impossible even to the loving parents to raise their children as free and loving children who in their turn would raise their own children with love and mercy as the children of one Father and as brethren among themselves. Without this type of upbringing of children there shall never reign peace and comfort in such a wonderful world of yours. And never shall man deliver himself from the fear of death.
For you to be able to experience the sensation of a spiritual freedom so that you would make sure by yourselves that one‘s life must be lived as real and in reality rather than as seeming and in illusion I am presenting to you this much deeper and more expanded concept of reality. A fairly large part of you is ready for such a concept, only you do not know as to where this deeper wisdom to dig out from. It is this book that shall be that step that shall lead you to this magnificent experience so that you shall begin to experience the reality of my words by yourselves. It is only then that you shall notice that the dogmas and rituals that have incarcerated you shall have disappeared as an opaque fog that has just recently held all the reality surrounding you under a complete cover. Now that you have recovered your eyesight you shall feel the impact of freedom and space on your soul. And this experience will let you perceive that there is no death. Therefore there is no need to protect your children from it by fearing to explain to your beloved little ones about the death of the grandfather or the grandmother.
Meanwhile, at first, it is you who must learn that there is no death. There is only people‘s ignorance and unwillingness to know what this reality is.
In order for you to know what Reality is I invite you to travel with me in a similar way when I was taken by my father to his outings around the
