A mind expanded by a new idea can never return to its former size.
Two common words in everyone's vocabulary when combined into one idea
become one of the most powerful ideas in the universe. Physical is a very
common word. Immortality is also a common word. When you combine them,
you get the idea of physical immortality. I've been exposing people to
the idea of physical immortality for over 30 years.
Physical immortality means victory over physical death. It means body
and mind mastery. Our Spirit is already an immortal master. This simple
thought of physical immortality makes us realize that although death may
be popular, it is not inevitable. Physical death is optional. The whole
purpose of Jesus Christ was to teach us this. But Jesus was not the first
nor the last human to conquer death. The Hebrew Bible is about five main
immortal humans : Elijah, Moses, Melchizadek, and Enoch. In the beginning
of Bible history, everyone lived 500 to 1000 years. Every continent has
its favorite immortals, including native Americans. I've made this one
of my favorite research projects for 37 years.
The founders and heroes and heroines of most religions who conquered death
do not have a local address on planet Earth. When I learned about the
immortal yogis who do, I was so excited I couldn't wait to meet them.
Since my first trip to India in 1977, I have met over 8 immortals who
each have maintained their body for at least 300 years. People have to
be at least 300 to qualify for my research. I know of many more that I
haven't had a chance to meet yet.
I've met several who are over 2000. These are yogis who have maintained
a local address on planet Earth for over 2000 years. I've written books
about two of them: Babaji and Bhartriji.
People often tell me that after my lecture or book in which the idea of
physical immortality got their attention, they couldn't stop thinking
about it for several years. It makes so much sense. How could people be
blinded by the death is inevitable belief system for so long?
After teaching the truth about physical immortality for over 30 years,
I've concluded that the reason people don't like to know about it is because
it involves a little spiritual work and personal changes. Physical immortality
is the natural result of a mind filled with wisdom and aliveness.
The three basic causes of death are :
2. emotional energy pollution
3. poor diet.
Therefore, to master death you have to do three things:
1. Master the idea of physical immortality which involves living from
2. Unravel your own death urge which you received from your parents and
encourage all the people in your environment to do the same. Learn how
to keep your energy body clean and balanced through spiritual purification
3. Learn the power of nutrition and fasting and the other simple and pleasurable
habits that give us body mastery.
Mastering spiritual practices is less difficult than living a miserable
life that leads to the grave. In fact, true spiritual practices are the
ultimate pleasures and enrich all the pleasures of living. As I studied
the lives of my immortal yogi friends, I began to realize that becoming
an immortal yogi is not difficult; it just takes a different focus. People
die because they kill themselves.
The greatest enemy of mankind has been and always will be ignorance. And
the most evil form of ignorance is self righteousness - thinking we know
enough. Self righteous people are murdering their own natural divinity
and are guilty of murdering the natural divinity of everyone around them.
It is the sin of eating of the fruit of the tree of knowledge and naturally
yields the personal doom of death.
The Bible says, "God is not willing for any to perish, but that all
should come to a knowledge of repentance." Repentance means to change
your mind. Repentance is neither difficult nor unpleasurable. In fact,
it is exciting, inspiring, and produces pleasure, bliss, and ecstasy.
If God made the path to eternal life difficult, He/She would be a sadist
Who has doomed us to eternal misery. The only thing difficult about it
is giving up your addiction to misery. Changing gives us the immense satisfaction
Simple spiritual purification practices like bathing twice per day, conscious
energy breathing, fire purification, an exercise system, a conscious diet,
loving relationships, and mastering a mantra are the basic common denominators
of the lifestyle of all the immortal masters I have met. These spiritual
practices with earth, air, water, and fire can clean the mind faster than
the mind can clean the mind. They are healing magic. In the process of
mastering these, we must develop a balance between solitude and service.
I've written many books about physical immortality and the practical principles
of conquering death and I recommend that you read them all and use my
tapes repetitively if you are interested in personal mastery. But every
year I try to put this simple truth into one page, in a clearer and easier
way for people to understand.
Anyone can read or have read to them one page and have their mind expanded
to receive the joy that this great idea brings. It unshackles your creativity
and releases enormous reserves of energy and intelligence.
Is physical immortality realistic?
Yes, if we honor the following. The three basic secrets to physical immortality
1. to stay tuned into God - Infinite Energy, our Source - all the time.
2. to heal the death urge. Healing the death urge can take us through
the most ugly emotions of suicidal and homicidal thoughts - we have to
survive the illusions in our own mind and go for wisdom and bliss.
3. to keep our energy body clean and balanced with the simple and pleasurable
spiritual purification practices with mind, earth, air, water, fire, and
When we eat food we have to clean the dishes, etc. When our home gets
dirty, we have to clean it. We also have to wash our clothes. When our
energy body (also called emotional body) gets dirty through absorbing
emotional energy pollution as we participate with people or in our self
healing process, we have to clean ourselves emotionally and spiritually.
It is a daily process.
If we stay ahead of the pollution - cleansing process, we become more
alive every day. If we lose the spiritual purification game, we become
more dead every day. Victory or victim?
One of the indicators is the guru belly phenomena. The solar plexus chakra
is the social chakra and emotional energy pollution can be collected physically
in the form of fat around the navel - it is sometimes called psychic fat.
Another indicator is stiffness. An over loaded body gets stiffer and stiffer
every day and every year until we become a stiff - and are buried. When
we absorb other people's death urge, we can get depressed, feel suicidal,
become prone to anger, be grouchy, or have violent dreams. Victim consciousness
in all its forms is a sign of death urge.
I'll finish this page with an idea which is a million times greater than
physical immortality, and is the source of personal mastery or misery
and death. It is this : 'Energy becomes what it thinks about'.
Your personal energy is the Eternal Spirit - God Within - your natural
This Infinite Eternal Energy is helpless and powerless without thought
and yet it is the power of thought. Your unlimited potential is only potential
until it has been activated and directed by your thoughts. Energy is directed
Infinite power directed by thoughts of weakness can produce infinite weakness.
Infinite power directed by wholesome and healthy thoughts produce infinite
wholesomeness, health, and safety - beyond safety - peace and pleasure.
Thoughts of death produce death. Thoughts of Eternal Life produce physical
immortality and body mastery. The body is Energy materialized by thought;
not passive thinking, but active thinking; thought in motion. Your physical
body and emotional body have been built up by millions of thoughts in
action. To be a master, you now have to catch the thoughts and change
them with the kind of actions that produce the results you like. We are
all scientists and our body is the laboratory. Various nutrients have
been created by thinking beings to produce certain effects in the body.
Some of these cause and effect relationships are simple and some are quite
complex. And simple fasting is the direct route to the purity of Infinite
Energy. However, it is also possible to starve to death for spiritual
purposes. We have to learn balance and common sense. More people die from
overeating today than from starvation.
Repentance is fun! Changing our minds is the great, eternal adventure
of all intelligent divine beings.
Playing in your Spirit Energy, your Divine Mind, and your Infinitely Beautiful
Body is what Eternal Life is all about.
