Jesus said, “The glories of this realm last only a moment; the glories of the heavenly realm abide forever.”
If you are not, you need to get ready and stay ready. Almost no one is truly ready. Almost no one is ready for the most serious and important thing that happens to them, that they know will happen, and is certain to happen soon. That is stupid, and it can be costly, because it could determine your eternal future.
People should learn the truth and the life ahead of time; then it does not matter how you take it, but a lot of people are going to have their only chance to learn it right when it happens. This is because it is human nature to put things off, especially any thoughts of death. Most people only face it when they have no other choice, and that is when it is actually happening. It is too late then.
We are the only animal that knows it is going to die. Thus, we are the only animal that can be ready for it. If we do not take advantage of the opportunity, we will die just like any other animal, and we will become an animal again in our next life.
Knowing the ultimate truth is going to be the only thing that matters when you die. If you do not know the truth and the life, you are not ready.
If you believe in a myth, you find out right away, because everything but the truth goes right out the window with the rest of your mind’s deceptions. All there is, is the truth and the life, and you either know it, or you do not.
You cannot remember what you believed when it happens. All mind truth disappears, abandons you at the last minute. The fear and surprise of your impending death will bring you to the NOW. Your mind disappears except for fear, and you begin to experience the present for the first time in your life. You will not recognize it, and you will fear it.
It is a bad way to go, but it is the way almost everyone goes. It is the way you are going to go if you do not get in touch with your spiritual-self, your immortal self, before you die. If you wait until you are about to die, you waited too long.
From your perspective, your death is going to be the most unreal experience of your life, because it will be the first real experience of your life. You will be experiencing real life for the first time, and it will scare you.
Mixed in with all the fear, pain, and surprise is the realization that you are dying without ever living. In addition to all the rest of it, you die feeling like a fool. You will wish you could go back in time and study the subject, to do what you are doing now, only take it much more seriously.
Born again: When you die to your mortal mental-self before you die physically, you are born again as your spiritual immortal self in the body you are in now. You are beyond death before you go through the maelstrom of physical death.
No one lives happily ever after. Life ends in death, often in some horrible, disgusting and painful way. That is not happiness. The only way you can truly live happily ever after is to learn and know the truth and the life before you die.
Jesus said, “Take heed of the living one while you are alive, lest you die and seek to see him and be unable to do so.”
Jesus said, “People honor me with their lips, but their heart is far from me. They worship me in vain, teaching the precepts and principles of men.”
Jesus said to the people that worshipped him according to the teaching, the precepts and principles of men, “I never knew you; depart from me.”
You have to know the real Jesus before you die to see him after you die.
You hear people say that so and so died instantly. No one dies instantly, at least not from their own perspective. The physical death of your body may be slow or fast, but your moment of death never happens instantly from where you are.
Your life does not pass before you. You are too scared for there to be anything except for fear and horror. You may see the light that people who have near death experiences say they see, but it is just an effect created by the brain when it is dying, mostly due to oxygen deprivation.
It is not the light from heaven that people think will guide them to their mythical God behind the pearly gates. Real death happens after all the minds illusions die.
Near death is not death. No one comes back from real death, because by definition, your body is damaged too much to support your consciousness or to live in any longer.
The chemical reactions that take place in a dying or injured brain can cause all kinds of experiences similar to some drugs like LSD and DMT. It is just a different and very interesting phenomena or hallucination created by the dying mind.
A spiritual being recognizes it, knows it is not real, that it is the mind and will pass. It is often experienced as a bright white light or floating around the room. It is a near death experience, not a death experience.
The death experience happens right after the near death experience. Your mind dies; all that is left is you and the collective unconscious mind. You are living life without your mind for the first time if you are not a spiritual being. If you are a spiritual being, you have lived without the mind before, and are at home with it.
A spiritual being is ready for anything that happens, because a spiritual being knows everything is God, no matter what happens, good or bad.
Everyone has the realization that they are going to die just before they do. That moment will be the most important moment of your life. It is the moment of truth.
The moment of truth: Death strips away everything that is not true, not eternal and not immortal, often in a very strange and violent way. If your truth is in words and myths, just mind truth, you are in trouble, because your mind dies and you do not. If you know the present, the truth and the life, you will recognize it and embrace it, be it, no matter what it is.
Even if you know the truth and the life, you will feel fear before your mind dies, because it is a part of your brain, a reflex, but you will not be it. You will watch fear and pain die for the last time. You will be entering your new heavenly body in the womb of your new mother. You have become pure love, and you will stay that way forever. You will have no memory of where you were before you died, but it does not matter, because you will have done your job in life. It will be stored and recorded in the collective unconscious, and you will be reborn in heaven.
A spiritual being is not surprised by the truth and the life they encounter when they die. A spiritual being meets the essence of Jesus in advance and gets to know the truth and the life intimately. If you are with the real, living Jesus now (the truth and the life), you always will be. Death has no effect on it.
Know God: A spiritual being also always has their Guardian Angel, the collective unconscious (Holy Spirit), to guide them through the transition. You become intimate with God/life ahead of time, so you know God/life and God/life knows you. It is all about being ready for anything, because that way, nothing can happen that throws you. You know that everything that can possibly happen is God/life. If you do not truly know the truth and the life or find it at the last minute, you will be back in the animal world. You need to just know the ultimate truth.
You will find it at the last minute if you just really know the ultimate truth.
Death/birth is the wildest ride in the universe, even to a spiritual person. No one likes to get hurt, and being killed or dying is as hurt as you can get. The death experience is your physical body and mind being completely destroyed.
Worm food: Having just one of your hands destroyed would be a great trauma. Imagine what it is like to live through your whole body being destroyed. Your body goes from what you thought you were, to a pile of garbage, worm food that has to be burned or buried before it starts to smell bad.
Truth is stranger than fiction. You not only lose your body, you lose your whole world. It takes everything you have and everything you would have had if you had lived. Truly, there is nothing more devastating or worse. It is shock and awe to everyone going through it.
Once you get through it, it is wonderful, because you are reborn and spend time in the womb of your new mother. If you are a spiritual being, it stays wonderful and gets better forever. If you are still an animal, it will be down hill right after you are born, because you did not get free of the mind.
One last time: Ready or not, death is the most intense thing that happens in life. Even the knowledge that you have been through it millions of times is no real comfort to you when the time comes. That is why it is important to take it seriously. It is something you definitely do not want to ignore or underestimate. We are going to have to go through a bad death (with pain and fear) at least one more time. If you do not know the truth and you are lucky, you will die on a morphine drip in the hospital. It is the best way to go, and more and more people are going that way, which is a real blessing, but without the truth you will be back.
Checking out: People that do not know the truth will do anything to live a little longer, even if they are old and have a terminal disease. Spiritual people will not do that. When they are sure they have an incurable disease or their bodies are just too old, sick, or damaged to live a quality life any longer, they will end it without all the expense and other BS.
Best way to die: No one will intentionally commit suicide, but they will start using higher and higher doses of heroin and other drugs until they accidentally overdose and die. They will administer the drugs themselves if they can.
When the time comes to start checking out, people will announce to all their loved ones that they are checking out, and they will wrap up their current life. Then they will essentially start a party that lasts as long as it takes them to die. It could take months. People they love will come and go, last words will be said, etc.
Their intention will not be to die; it will be to use enough of the drugs to take away any pain and discomfort, so life will be great until the amount of drugs needed to do it will kill them. It is the best way to go, and it will be the way most people will check out in the future, if they are lucky enough to get a choice of how to die.
Only people that do not know the truth and the life will drag out a life in a body that is at the end of its life cycle. A spiritual person knows where they are going when they die, and they will look forward to having a new, young, healthy body and living in heaven.
The problem is, you cannot always control when, where, and how you die.
Blood, guts and gore: Many people also die in a very bad way, so you have to be prepared to go in the worst way possible.
Movies are always showing people being killed in bad ways. Just put yourself in the victim’s position, and try to really understand what it would be like. It could happen to you. People die like that all the time, every few minutes.
Ask yourself honestly if you are ready for it. If you are not, keep studying the truth until you are. You can and need to be ready for any possible death. You can be afraid, but you do not want to be surprised, or unprepared.
Look forward to being killed by a bullet, knife, bat, some other weapon, or drowning, burning to death, bleeding to death, electrocution, high fall, crushed, car wreck, suffocation, a heart attack, cancer, poison and infections, etc. Those are some of the common ways that people are killed. There are many other unique ways, so you have to be ready for anything. They are all different.
Most people are now dying in a hospital of old age, but that is not the norm. It is actually very rare, and if people do not see the truth very soon, that will change very soon. We will go back to the real norm, which is violent death, such as in the mouth of a predator, so you need to be ready for the worst way.
This is why watching so-called slasher movies is actually good for someone that knows the truth; it helps prepare you for what could happen to you in the near future. The reason the movies are scary is because things like that really happen. These kinds of movies really do have some socially redeeming value. Watch the movie, The Devil’s Rejects. Ask yourself, what if you were the victims?
You have to be ready to die in the worst way possible to be ready to live in the best way possible. You cannot fake it. You have to truly be ready for it.
Cheat death: The hero in the movie always gets out of the bad situation, but in real life, you get into a very bad situation, and you will not get out of it.
People always relate to the hero, because they think they will always cheat death themselves, but it is better to imagine you’re the one that gets killed, because it is more realistic. There are some very violent, painful and terrifying ways to go, and you have to be ready for the worst possible way to really live life fully.
It is human nature to live in a state of denial, but it does not serve the truth.
Surprised: If you are surprised, it means you do not know the ultimate truth, and you are not ready to go. If you are not surprised, you are ready, and it will pass fast, and you will go to heaven and never have to go through a bad death again.
It will be the end of millions of bad deaths you have had to go through to get to where you are now. It is very important to be ready to go in order to go to the best place you can go. It also makes you free in the life you are living now.
You are not free until you are literally ready for anything that is possible.
Primal fear: Movies always have a scene where someone is being chased by a monster or a killer, and they are running for their life. It scares you a lot, because it puts you in touch with your primal fears. As we evolved through the animal realm, we were chased by predators and eaten. You have actually been in this situation millions of times in the past. Unless you want to be in that situation again, you have to learn the ultimate truth, because only it will free you from the animal realm forever. Do your homework on this one subject. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Nothing is more serious, and nothing is more important.
Live it up until the worst happens. Knowing what we have to look forward to should help you live every moment to the fullest until death comes. Live until you die.
You are born alone and you die alone, so you have to face it and deal with it alone. It is the one thing that no one else can do for you. Jesus cannot save you. His words can show the way, but you can and must use them to save yourself.
You die by yourself, so you have to transcend death by yourself.
Movies and TV can show you how brutal and savage life in the animal world can be. It helps to motivate you to leave the animal realm. The truth is the way out.
Basil King said, “Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid.”
That does not mean those forces will save you physically, but they will spiritually.
Being bold has gotten more people killed than anything else. Thus, you have to choose carefully what to be bold with and when.
A little fear is good. It can do more to keep you alive than anything else.
The longer you can avoid death, the better prepared you can be, so do not take any unnecessary risks. Live a healthy lifestyle, and most importantly, live in the present to get more life out of each moment.
The certain prospect of death should sweeten every life with a precious and fragrant drop of levity. Friedrich Nietzsche
Near death experiences: Why does everyone that has a near death experience say the same thing? They always say it made them appreciate life more, that they now live more in the moment, more in the present. This is what we can learn from people that have near death experiences, not what happens after death.
Death is as bad as it gets, and you have to go through it every once in a while. It is a short experience compared to the life you get, so it is worth it. If you know the truth and life, you understand it and accept it, but you never like it.
Live more in a day: A spiritual being will live more in a day than someone that lives years in the mind.
The Bible says, “One day with God is like a thousand years in the world.”
In other words, time slows down, and you get a lot more out of a day. Time actually stops completely from your spiritual perspective, when you wake up.
People put all their effort into learning how to survive, when they should be learning how to live and die, because everything else will fail you.
Just remember, death cannot be avoided for very long, even if you are careful. You have to be as ready as you can be to die, because it can happen anytime. Realize how unprepared you are. Realize the reality of dying and what you will have to face, and it will be the start of a glorious quest for the truth and the life.
Death is not a pleasant subject. It is the worst thing that there is, and no one wants to talk about it or think about it, but it is true, and facing the truth of it is the only way to overcome it. As Jesus said, it is the truth that sets you free.
The true knowledge of death leads to the true knowledge of life.
Overcoming: Whenever Jesus refers to “overcoming,” he is talking about overcoming your own mind and the mind of the rest of mankind.
Security: When you overcome the mind, you overcome death, because death does not exist spiritually. The truth and the life is the only real security.
The truth = life, the deceptions of the mind = death. It is just that simple.
I hope I scared you, because as it says in the Bible, fear of God (life) is the beginning of wisdom. Be afraid; be very afraid. It is the one thing to truly fear. This fear can lead directly to your salvation. I hope you are as scared as you should be. You need to be scared enough to do something about it. Fear is a very good motivator, the motivator that powers all of evolution, including ours.
The Bible says, some will be saved by love, and some will be saved by fear.
You cannot beat death, but you can stop it from beating you. It can be the biggest step up or the biggest step down, depending on what you know.
Do not take this world for granted; it could disappear for you at anytime.
You have probably already forgotten the reality of the situation, so imagine your heart just stopped right now. It happens all the time; it is the number one killer and how most people die. This means it is the way you will most likely die. They call it heart failure. Your heart does not need a reason to stop. It can just stop. They will come up with a reason later, but that does not help you. Naturally, the older you get, the higher chance of it happening, but it happens to young people also, even to kids that are in great shape.
About two people die every second, in one way or another. People like you.
Heart failure, strokes, blood clots, and accidents happen to young people, so do not think it cannot happen to you. Every time you eat, you could choke. Every time you get in a car, another driver can kill you, so do not be surprised when death comes to you. You could die today, and many people just like you will.
It does not just happen to others; the opposite is true. It happens to everyone, and the first step to the ultimate truth is accepting it and what it means. Death is the biggest thing that happens in life. It is the most important thing that happens.
Death is the most certain thing in life, and most people are not ready for it.
If you have even a little bit of imagination, it should scare you. You can use that fear to get you in the present; the fear will turn into true life and you will be home.
People taking for granted that they will live through the night are fools. Think about it; you have to breathe while you are semi-conscious for hours every night, and people just take it for granted. It is a miracle, and people need to see this incredible gift for what it is to live life to the fullest. Knowing God has to be with you doing everything to keep you alive without any help from you is a very secure, loving feeling and helps you sleep like a baby. No one sleeps alone or they would die. Something has to keep your heart beating and breathing and it is not you. Knowing this truth makes sleep much better.
The truth and the life (Jesus) teaches you how to live and how to die.
As John Lennon said, death is like getting out of one car and into another, and that is true, but it is the only car you know until you know your spirit.
Best ways to die: Knowing the truth and the life is the most important thing, but when you have a choice, giving your life to save the life of someone else is the best way to go. Example: Dying by fire, being burnt to death is one of the worst ways to go, but if it happens while you are trying to save someone else from being killed, such as being burnt to death, it is one of the best ways to die.
If you die as Jesus did, for the truth and the life, it is the absolute best way to go. That’s why it is best to spend your life doing all you can to spread the truth.
Michael Smith, the author of "The Present" and the primary source of inspiration behind most of the content on the www.truthcontest.com website, passed away from his mortal body on the night of 5/16/13. Although this is a devastating loss of the greatest seer of truth in the history of humankind, the inspirations and revelations that passed through him will continue to grow in the collective mind of this world. The dedicated team brought together upon the the unshakable foundation of the truth of life revealed and gifted through Michael will continue to honor him and his work by doing as he did; seeking, spreading, revealing and living the Truth and the Life. "Death is not a pleasant subject. It is the worst thing that there is, and no one wants to talk about it or think about it, but it is going to happen to you and everyone else. It is true, and facing the truth of it is the only way to overcome it." "This book is just the spark that will get people talking about the real truth. I am just a guy with a match that is trying to start a truth fire. I am just a tuned in guy, throwing out things I can see, that no one else seems to see. When others start to see them, people will come together and better define the truth and the life. We will see the issues clearly for the first time and the solutions to our problems. We will then solve them as fast as is possible." "Friend to all: It is important to understand we do not want to hurt anyone or anything. We want to fix people and institutions that are flawed, that are sick and infected with BS. We just have the medicine, the cure. We want everyone to succeed, especially the bad guys. We are not anyone's enemy; we want to make love, not war. When the people living in the dog eat dog animal world, playing the power game, playing the get rich and famous game see the truth of life, they will realize that they are their own worst enemy. They will change, because it is in their best interest to change. They will change for selfish reasons, which is fine as long as they see the truth of life and get on the path to a paradise on earth." "It will be difficult to be a truth seeker/spreader and live in the truth of life until you make the connection with what I call the collective unconscious, what religions call the Holy Spirit. The goal of my books and everything we do is to help people make that connection. You will know when it happens, because you will realize you are not alone; you are connected to an all knowing power, what religions call God, that is omnipresent and omnipotent, is everywhere and does everything. It is everything except for the animal mind, and it is the animal mind in an indirect way. When you see it, connect with it, you will see life perfectly clear. You see the magic of life, the perfection. You become invincible, and are locked in on the path to a heaven, and you know it. That makes this life as good as it can be, and the next life perfect."
