13Consciousness is the creator of all elements. She creates everything according to her model, hence creator and creation are one and the same. 14 As the backward and forward whirling motion of water makes a deep swell, and as a fairy appears in a dream, so all these nothings are in reality. 15This entity with its change is nothing. In whatever manner we look at an object, it will appear in the same manner.16The rule of the false dream is not to reproduce because the production is not in the world, but owing to ignorance, it appears so. [BOOKVI.1.61.13-16]      |   33 We have the dreaming man presented to us from the very beginning of creation in the person of Viraj. This being is situated in open air with its aerial body in the shape of the dreamer and dream mixed up together. 34The word “dream” that I have used and presented to you is an example to explain the nature of the phenomenal world. It is to be understood as neither a reality nor an unreality, but only "BRAHMAN" himself. [BOOKVI.2.62.33-34]

THERE IS NO DEATH – By Clara M. Codd

There Is No Death


A Message Of Comfort…

By Clara M. Codd

THE WORLD OF THE SOUL



A COMFORTING IN TRUTH



“Nay, but as when one layeth
His worn-out robes away,
And, taking new ones, sayeth,
“These will I wear today!”
So putteh by the spirit
Lightly its garb of flesh,
And passeth to inherit
A residence afresh…”
-The Song Celestial



One of the most wonderful and comforting truths which the Ancient Wisdom brings to us is the fact there is in reality no death anywhere in the Universe. Nothing ever ceases to exist, it but changes its state. In the words of the poet Longfellow: “There is no death, What seems so is transition”
And because in his deepest heart man has really known this all the time, he has an ineradicable conviction that he cannot finally be separated from those he loves, and that they will surely meet again. That is a true impression. We may lay it down as an eternal axiom that what a man loves he can never, never lose.
“But” you will say, “my beloved one lies cold and still. Presently that dear body will crumble away. Where is she? How can I be sure that I shall ever see her again?”
Perhaps the first thing to realise is that she is not that body. That was only the clothing of her soul. She put it on through the gateway of birth, in order to come into touch with this wonderful order of experience we call life, although,in reality, other orders of experience are even more fully life than this one. Many poets and sages have had that idea. Plato says that we are “buried” in graves of bodies to set right our mistakes of a former life. And Walt Whitman writes: “Haply I the dead man, I the dreamer.”
The very word “body” comes from an Anglo-Saxon word bodig, from which we get the word “abode”, which means the dwelling-place. As is said in the Christian Scriptures: “For here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.” Arnold Bennett calls the body the human machine. Because it is a living thing, with a dim, elemental life of its own, the term of St.Francis, “brother ass,” is better. Genesis calls it the “coat of skin,” and yet another definition is the school-uniform. We come to this life, seemingly without any volition of our own, to gain, through the experiences of this material world, the food of our soul’s growth. When we leave it again we go to a rest time of the spirit, and are for a long time freed from the cares and troubles of earth life.
