Orb Posted September 27, 2022 Share Posted September 27, 2022 Death is something coming to an end. What is it you really don't want to come to an end? When thought identifies with something and that "something" fades away, that is death too. Thought identifies with "I", we can say this is the primary identification. Then in thought, this "I" identifies with objects (money, sex, fame, etc.), we can say these are secondary identifications. When this "I" loses one of the objects it identifies with those are micro-deaths. In other words when "I" no longer has an experience of some object it identified with it is a micro-death. The aversion to loss is actually the saving grace, aversion is the Key and the Lock! Just use it as a key instead of a lock! The micro-deaths point to something so cool. I call it micro death because these little losses point to the true aversion, the true death. (No worries, no one's gonna die 😊) When "I" and the experience structure is dissidentified with, it's mega-death! "I" and "Experience" create each other, no experience, no I. So the true fear/aversion is the end of all Experience, the end of packaging direct experience, turning it into an experience/memory, then getting high off of it, abusing the memory like some object, objectifying oneself, apparently. Quote Mention "I shall give you what no eye has seen, and what no ear has heard, and what no hand has touched, and what has never entered into the human heart.
