There is no such thing as death for the spiritually enlightened
Many people have a limited view of their life. They believe they are born, live for a while and die. However, there is much more to the story than that, and understanding this fact could be an important component of spiritual growth.
Ilchi Lee talks about life being more cyclical. Rather than leaving the Earth at the end of our lives, our body lives on and becomes a part of the plants, animals and people around us. In this way, live is virtually limitless.
"Life is eternal," Lee said. "Just as we consume the life forces of our food, so we give our bodies back to the earth when we are finished with them."
In this view, everyone is connected in one great circle of life. We only exist because of those who came before us. Similarly, we will make life possible for those who follow us. This unbroken chain has existed since the dawn of man and will continue as long as the species endures.
Therefore, death is not something to be feared but is instead an opportunity for an individual to give back to the world.
