“The mind then, that becomes the one who is no longer in fear, no longer in resistance, is the mind that has forgiven all things, including itself. The mind that can embrace all phenomena that arise and pass away with passion, with joy, with aliveness, with innocence, with simplicity, that mind cannot taste death. It literally transmutes death, even as death seems to be passing by.” (“The Way of Transformation,” The Way of Mastery, Chapter 21, Page 257)
When we are no longer afraid of death, death will seem to be passing us by–even at the point of the end of our time on earth. We will thus not taste of death in our thoughts for long years prior, as well as when the time comes. Our hearts will be free of fear. We will accept all things, even this, being willing to “have it so.” This type of relinquishment is a secret of how to approach life at any time, and not just when life is ending.
“Be willing to have it so.” This is acceptance brought to the forefront of our lives. This is the acceptance that lets God know that we are at last in His fold. We have tried everything else, and now we know that His is the best way.
Decide for Him today.
