An Experiment With Death

An Experiment With Death

3 mins 96 3 mins 96

What is death? Is death ever possible in this infinite universe? I was so fascinated to know the secrets of death. What I found all was that the term "death" is just a morsel. One day, I tried the same with myself. I closed my breathing for about two minutes. Then, I slept. It was like a mysterious and horror dream. I had died. The world was not affected at all by my death. I was traveling towards heaven. The stairs were well decorated with flowers, carpet, and garlands. Then, I found the door of Heaven. It was closed with a lock. As I broke that lockout, I opened the door. What I found after opening was that, there was my body in Heaven and all others were crying. It was the bigger reflection of what usually happens after a person passes out. Here, I am not using the word 'death' because death happens after a long time. But, for the sake of astonishment, there was no impact to the cosmos for my death. Then, who I am? This is the most polemic question in this 21st century. According to some rectors, death is universal and after death, we go to Heaven. Just imagine and visualize that when rockets go above, they cross the various layers of the atmosphere and reach the vacant space of the universe. Then, they should also have come across the layer of Heaven. But, as per meteorological science, there are various layers of the atmosphere from the biosphere to space. Then, where is Heaven?


So, I just oppose the concept of Heaven. My travel towards Death helped me to know the real aspect of death. Death, according to this human world, is that you are no more physical, but in perspectives to the cosmos, you are always alive. This sleight thought about death made me go forward. Now, how sleek death is? Death is not the opposite of life. We undergo life and death at the same time. When we inspire the outside fresh air, a tension gets created inside this human body and so, we need to expire to liberate this tension. In this way, human life is bounded by death all the time. Life and death are simultaneous. Without death, you can't survive the fate of life. This travel towards death and from death, I understood the internal meaning of life. Life is not mortal. It is immortal in the sense of the concept of infinity. Each particle of all the past beings is moving all around us and some of those have taken re-birth. Karma is that, whatever you did in your past life, you have to bear the pressure of that karma in this present life. What you do now, will either put pressure on this or the next life. Yogic practices may help you know the real aspect of life and death. To know death more precisely, just sit near a burning human body. You need to go to a cemetery where the journey of the human body ends in the raging fire. In that place, where life and death mix up to form particle properties. So, a journey towards death will help you know the real side of death. Death is infinite and the infinite side of death is life!
