Living on borrowed time

One thing is sure: we will all face death. What happens after we die? No one knows, because no one has come back to tell us. But life does offer some clues that can make living with the reality of death an intriguing mystery rather than one to be fearfully anticipated.

    Cool darryl, thanks for your last videos.

    Dont you agree that being human all the wawke time is somewhat
    detrimental to an open view of the great scheme of beings?

    How much ego does interfere on you NOT being human but a
    expression of something much greater, thus the fear of ‘dieying’?

    Point: project darryl. I wanna see what you can say after
    the experience!

    To the kid: lessons are learned always the hard way, there is
    no easy thing on the universe. Just try to stay awake while
    your body falls slowly to sleep. You will feel the edge….
    there are new levels of freedom that you cant imagine!

    🙂 Thats a long delay darryl… i was wonder if you went to
    china or something!

    I have read your book and have been watchin your videos for quite a while. Your thoughts on existence and reality fascinate me, alot of it seems like it makes perfect sense to me. Some answers I have been trying to figured I have thought about through your videos.

    Anyway, I have some questions and thoughts after reading this video that I would like you to respond to regarding state of consciousness after death and your concept of time.

    You say that time is an illusion created by infinite consciouness through experience. Eveverything in the past and future lives in the one moment that exists, the now. Do you think that this supports fate and destiny in a way because events of the future are happening in the ever present moment? Or is it constantly changing allow for infinite consciouness to have its own experience?

    You also said that after death the infinite consciousness that is limited within our physical bodies will break free. I think that it is possible that we possess a second body, or machinery as you compared it to. Could infinite consciousness reach a lower level of limitation within a spiritual energy body, or soul? You have mentioned souls and spirits in otjher videos. I think this could be possible, and might support “paranormal” happenings. Also, would this spiritual body ever go away if this was true, would infinite consciousness ever be by itself.

    Some questions and ideas for you think about. I would really like to read a response from you, Darryl Sloan. Thank you.

    I have been a fan of your videos for quite a while now and read your newest book. Your philosophy fascinates me and has caused me to think deeply about our existence and reality.
    After seeing this video, I have a lot of ideas and questions. I would really like it if you could respond to this, as I would love to hear your viewpoints. I want to bring up topics of state of consciousness after death and your concept of time.

    So, you said in this video that the all knowing consciousness breaks free of limitation from a physical body after death. You have spoken about the soul in previous videos, and I think that there could be a lower level of all-knowing consciousness being limited within a spiritual body. It seems that we have some sort of spiritual energy along with a physical body. So, here are some questions to ponder about. If this was true, would all-knowing consciousness ever break free from this type of enclosure? How would a type of spiritual body go away? What would happen, what would you do in this state? I thought of this because of all the supposed “paranormal” events and experiences that some people claim to have gone through. Ghosts and also psychics/auras/telekinesis (as you have experimented with) included.

    Secondly, you said in your video that everything that occurs happens in the ever-present moment you call the now. Passage of time is an illusion through experience created by all-knowing consciousness. You said that everything in the past and future exists in the now. Could this support fate or destiny, because events in the future exist in the now? Or, does all-knowing consciousness encased in a physical body go through constantly changing experiences that it is in control of? I think I am leaning towards the second one.

    This is hard to explain in text, but I would really appreciate a response to these ideas.

    Bob,

    “Do you think that this supports fate and destiny in a way because events of the future are happening in the ever present moment?”

    Free will and fate are both are true. In terms of the perceived movement of time, the future is being dictated by us each passing moment. But in terms of eternity, everything is done and dusted, because eternity encapsulates time. Eternity is not an ever-forward moving timelessness; it is an all-knowing timeless moment. We will only ever scratch the surface of this, because we’re stuck in time, and the only thing that necessitates us conceptualising it as a necessary reality is because without it we are left with an illogical infinite regression about our own origins.

    “I think that it is possible that we possess a second body, or machinery as you compared it to. Could infinite consciousness reach a lower level of limitation within a spiritual energy body, or soul?”

    I’ve come to believe that there is no individuated soul that floats away from the body after death. The reason why is because I don’t see the need for it philosophically or logically, or even emotionally. Every conception of an afterlife, including reincarnation, seems to me to be an expression of fear of losing one’s personal identity, and a failure to fully realise that we are the ALL right now. It’s an attachment to mind/ego as the sum total of your identity. For me (and this going to sound paradoxical), death is a return to the oneness that you never left.

    Is it possible there’s an individuated soul that continues to experience time in motion after death? Of course. I just have no evidence of it.
