Death and Universal Consciousness
by Avery Grant Staples
I am leaning toward the belief that Enoch became enlightened to the same universal truth that the Buddha had: Death is only a mind construct of the unenlightened.
Once we, as sentient beings, understand that we are not truly of flesh, but one Universal Consciousness that chooses to manifest in flesh, then death has no meaning. Also, being Universal Consciousness, we already are One with God, Cosmic Consciousness, or whatever we choose to call our Oneness.Christ pretty much said the same thing when He said,"I am in my Father and My Father is in Me." To be "saved" is to have that enlightened power over death.I think we need to learn to understand and appreciate the metaphorical language unique to cultural religions of the world. Some of us tend to take the literal interpretation approach to trying to understand scripture and we miss the spiritual point.
Due to this form of ignorance, we have unnecessary religious wars even though all religions are speaking of the same religious truth through their own unique language. I could go on and on with all the diverse religious books of the world,but I think I have made my point. I know others have pretty much spoken or written the same thing throughout history, so mine is just a reminder.
