Time and space are no barriers to the gathering of hearts." Sri Ramana Maharshi

a "Glimpse"

Ananda, I was heartened by this recent "Glimpse" and felt that David experienced this reality. I thought it might comfort you as well. Love, Charlie

The moment of death is a tremendous opportunity, if we understand clearly what is happening and have prepared well for it in life. For at the actual moment of death, the thinking ego-mind dies into the essence, and in this truth, enlightenment takes place. If we familiarize ourselves with the true nature of mind through practice while we are alive, we become more prepared for when it reveals itself spontaneously at the moment of death. Recognition then follows as naturally as a child running into it's mother's lap. Remaining in that state, we are liberated.
