Beloved Kusum,

Love. Moment to moment life passes into death.

Because it is death.

Covered, it appears as life.

Uncovered, it is death.

Remember this fact always.

This is silent meditation.

And, when this remembering penetrates even in your dreams you will have a new door opened unto you.

Through it in fact, you will be altogether new.

And ultimately reborn. .

Remembering death gives a new dimension to consciousness.

Because to remember death is not natural On the contrary nature has arranged so that one should not be aware of it.

Because the moment one transcends death one transcends nature also.

And, one cannot transcend death unless one is totally aware of the fact.

So be totally aware of death.

And it is happening each moment within and without.

It is present everywhere.

And because it is so obvious one becomes absent to it.

Remember and deepen the consciousness.

Because as the awareness of death goes deeper one becomes capable of feeling that which is deathless.

Really, death is the door - the opening to the deathless.

But be conscious of it.

Be conscious and transcend.

Be conscious and know that which is before birth and after death.

And, you are that.


(To, Mrs. Kusum, C/o. Shree Kapil Mohan Chandhok, Quality Ice Cream Co., 90, Industrial Area-A, LUDHIANA, Punjab, India.)

"Your people are so paranoid, it is obvious we can no
longer permit you to exist. We cannot allow you to spread your
filthy, immoral, Christian beliefs to the rest of the world.
Naturally, you oppose World Government, unless it is under your
FascistChristian control. Who are you to proclaim that your
ChristianAmerican way is the best? It is obvious you have never
been exposed to the communist system. When nationalism is
finally smashed in America. I will personally be there to
firebomb your church, burn your Bibles, confiscate your firearms
and take your children away. We will send them to Eastern Bloc
schools and reeducate them to become the future leaders of a
OneWorld Government, and to run our Socialist Republic of
America. We are taking over the world and there is nothing you
can do to stop us."
