This meditative transmission seemingly started by pointing out to me that because I’m not super close with my parents, when they die (which will probably happen in the next decade or so), it’s not going to negatively impact my mental health much. It’s the classic dangers of attachment shit that Buddhists like to go on and on about. It got more interesting though as I then got this visionary example of the metaphysical reasons for this. All of a sudden I’m looking at this mentally disturbed young man and given the impression that he killed himself (or died of a drug overdose, wasn’t really specified).
Even though I have zero clue who this person is (could have been an alternate version of me I suppose), in this scenario I can tell I’m now inhabiting a perspective where this person’s sad ending affected me greatly. I’m seeing it as a tragedy and all of a sudden whatever I’m communicating with is like: but it’s not really. Why? Because look, if you wanted to, you could just go back and rewrite the whole thing. That’s how shit works in the other realm. You have this sense of loss but nothing was actually lost. That’s an illusion caused by your limited perception of time. He’s still there. When you enter these higher states of consciousness, you would probably no longer give a fuck about this perceived tragedy but if you did, you could reverse time (as it’s an illusion anyway), bring him back, and put him on a different course in an alternate reality.
With this, I get this vision of me going back and literally reversing the wrong steps he took that lead to his death and rewriting what I perceive as a better conclusion. Twin Peaks is used as a metaphor for this and I’m like, got it (won’t really go into why this makes sense if you haven’t seen it yet). Nothing I haven’t been shown before, but always compelling. Goes right in tune with the idea that to get rid of pain in the material realm, we need to conquer our fear of death, which we’d do by coming to an understanding that nothing is actually lost in death really.
It all still exists and can be reconfigured ad infinitum if we so choose. Our grief stems from a complete misunderstanding about the nature of the larger reality. When we find an effective way to bring ourselves in and out of the realm beyond time, we’ll no longer find these things traumatizing. Also, there’s a supreme danger in getting too close to anyone or anything in this world as everything is ephemeral here. If you’re too attached, the loss of whoever or whatever you’re too attached to will be incredibly and rather pointlessly painful. Gotta diversify your attachments I suppose. More to the point, you have to ensure that your happiness emanates from the inside and projects outward rather than the other way around.
