The beginning of real spiritual work—and preparation for death—is learning how to discriminate amongst the different psychological elements within us. Without experiential knowledge of the forces that are moving within and around us, we are powerless to determine the trajectory of our existence. Learn about the essence (unmodified consciousness), ego (modified consciousness), and personality. Only when you can recognize and manage these elements from moment to moment can you begin to prepare for a conscious death.
This is a lecture from the free online course Death: Preparation for Transformation
Everyone will experience death, thus it is intelligent to prepare oneself for the experience. This course examines the truth of what happens when we die, and what happens in the afterlife or "between" (bardo). Most importantly, you will learn how to use today as preparation for death, and thereby transform life into a source of happiness for yourself and others.
"We can learn very little from the phenomenon of birth, but from death we can learn everything." - Samael Aun Weor, The Great Rebellion
