The biggest secret of life is this: there is no secret. I'm free to say that I have discovered this after 20 years of my honest spiritual search. Yes, you hear me well, nothing has value in this life.

Desires, fears, love, hate... you think it is "you". You get stuck talking to yourself, explaining, hoping but life has no explanations to give. It is an empty, meaningless flow of events that just go on and on.

Whatever happens has little or no importance. You are born and you live your pity life: you sleep, eat, shit, fuck, work and work and work more until you die. And today's post is about that. How to properly die? How to leave this world? 

If we have slavery then we have freedom. The basic restrain in your life is your mind, thoughts, ideas, the feeling of identity, personality, "you". Slavery is the feeling of an individual self. The feeling of "myself" is the bondage and source of all fears. Freedom is the freedom of "myself" and it is the ultimate goal of life.

Fears are the base of your life

You love a woman and with the love, in the same parcel comes fear: she may leave you, she has already left somebody and come with you. There is a precedent; perhaps she will do the same to you.

There is fear, you feel knots in the stomach.

You are too much attached. You cannot get a simple fact: you have come alone in the world;

You have been here yesterday also, without this woman, perfectly well, without any knots in the stomach. And tomorrow if this woman goes... What is the need of the knots?

You know how to be without her and you will be able to be without her.

The fear that things may change tomorrow.... Somebody may die, you may go bankrupt, your job may be taken away. There are a thousand and one things which may change.

You are burdened with fears and fears, and none of them are valid because yesterday also you were full of all these fears, unnecessarily. 

Things may have changed, but you are still alive. And man has an immense capacity to adjust himself to any situation.

The fear is part of the mind and the mind is a coward, and has to be a coward because it doesn't have any substance it is empty and hollow, and it is afraid of everything.

Your mind is very much afraid that one day you may become aware. Your mind is really afraid of everything that can create more awareness. The awareness is the end of the mind. The death of the mind is your rebirth when you're really beginning to live.

You should be happy, you should rejoice in the death of the mind, because nothing can be a greater freedom. Nothing else can give you wings to fly into the sky, the mind is a prison.

The greatest discovery in life, the most precious treasure, is awareness. Awareness is getting out of the prison or realizing you have never been in the prison. But without awareness you are bound to be in darkness, full of fears.

You go on creating new fears there is no end to it. You live in fear and you will die in fear, and you will never be able to taste freedom. It is just your potential which you can claim any time, but you never do it.

It is your responsibility

You have a hard time understanding that many of the conveniences and customs in your life based on your beliefs actually degrade your awareness, so it is not difficult to see that you're struggling with your health, finances, in your relationships, and you find it impossible to make progress toward life worth living.

Do you feel like you’re always doing more for others than for yourself? Have you tried to lose weight, but just gain it all right back after making some progress? Do you have financial goals that always seem just out of reach? Are you stuck working a job you hate that’s taking you nowhere in life? Are your relationships in chaos and full of drama? Do you self-medicate with alcohol, pills, TV, food or anything else just to escape being overwhelmed by life? Do you procrastinate and avoid making decisions?...

This is how you live, by setting out the goals and going after it. In this blog and every post in it I have been telling you there is no goal!

Life is its own goal. There is nothing outside life that you have to achieve. All achievement is the projection of your ego. The very idea of achievement is ambition.

What you have achieved does not matter: money, power, knowledge, these are not in any way going to give you life. In fact, in achieving power, money, prestige, in achieving any other ambition, you are losing your life. You are involved in stupid things.

You will realize this only at the time of death, with a shock

Your goals are always in the future, and life is always in present moment. The goals are always far away, and life is in this very moment.

The very moment of death is the most important moment of your whole life. In the moment of death, within a split second, you will see everything that had happened to you, that you have remembered and also that which you have never remembered. You will see many things which you have not even taken note off and you were not aware that but it is a part of your memory. The whole film of your life's memory will go so quickly in a flesh.

You will note and recollect all your experiences, unfulfilled desires, expectations, disappointments, frustrations, sufferings, joys... everything.

It is at the moment of death that your next life is decided and released from your mind and soul and these desires will decide your future life, whatever has remained unfulfilled you will move towards that target.

One chapter closes another chapter opens now your new life will be determined by the last moment of your death.

Don't die clinging that you don't want to die. Investigate your life while you're living it, be aware and conscious being. Otherwise, in the moment of death you may recognize the fact that you have not lived at all and that your life has simply passed as a dream.
