Many people ask me all the time: “What happens when we die?” and I always say “I haven’t died yet so I don’t know.” But we can experience the feeling of death during our deepest prayers or contemplation. When we’re in deepest prayer we’re oblivious to all our surroundings including ourselves and all our worries depart from us. This is the time that the Indian yogis call “samadhi.” During this samadhi time we experience oneness with God almost like at the time when we die. That’s why in the Bible it is mentioned “Learn to die so that you will begin to live”. And a saint also said “I die daily” and “Whoever forsakes the flesh for the spirit will find God” etc. But how do we forget or forsake the flesh? Every day we have so much difficulty in surviving. Every little thing that we see around us everything we encounter during our lifetime always tries to remind us that we’re a physical beings we’re just mere mortals weak feeble human beings helpless in face of destiny. So how can we forget this? We can! We can if we practice. We can if we know how. It’s very simple. Each one of us can do this. We have children from six years old even younger than that… five! They already experience oneness with God. They experience the phenomenal feeling of forsaking the flesh and uniting with the spirit or visiting Heaven while living.
