LETTER from Babaji: Death of Body

Mahavatar Babaji
Question on VBV blog yesterday: “Dearest Babaji: If a person is slowly dying in our presence, how can we do our sadhana, when we are so deeply saddened? What must one do in times like these? How do we deal with the sick/dying people around us? We would like to cure them, but we can’t. We would like to help them but they are too sick to even move.”

Babaji transmitsed for comment section yesterday: Thank you for this comment which is of concern for many, always. As Jesus said: "The poor ye always have with you," so, also, always you have atmic souls coming and going on planet Earth. Doing one’s sadhana when one is on the spiritual path is a duty if you sincerely are committed to advancing. Controlling the mind is a spiritual practice; so then God has given you a perfect opportunity when you are deeply saddened to practice controlling your mind. That is all, isn’t it?

Please go within and ask your Self, your heart, what you must give to these people who are in the process of transition. You see each person who gives and each person who is in this state of change is a personal contact unto themselves, that is for both. On VBV tomorrow I will discuss this in a little more detail. -Your Friend, Babaji

Today Babaji transmits: “Lord help us,” we pray in times of trouble, isn’t it? Well, that is an appropriate prayer. Have you read the Paslms of David, in particular Psalm 23 recorded in the Bible?

The 23rd Psalm

(Bible - King David)

he Lord is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness
for His name' sake.

Yea, though I walk through
the valleyof the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil:
For thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff,
they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of mine enemies;
Thou annointest my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the House of the Lord forever.

King David was in dire trouble when he wrote that psalm. Yet he understood that the Lord was always with him. So like that, if a person is dying, you must attempt to help them from the place where they are, see? If they have not lived their life as a Christian, they would not be in a place where they could relate to King David’s beautiful and blessed psalm. Firstly, whatever spiritual tradition they have resonated with, or if they have not resonated with any, you must aline your “help” with them and the place where they are on all levels presently, see? If you wish, and the person is in a state when they may respond, and if the person wants to pray or have you pray for them, that is good, but ask them or have them ask you first. If they are not moving or are unconscious then you must work with them at the place, the level at which the physical may currently respond. And it has been proven by science that unconscious people may still hear and see from the inner eyes and ears.

Secondly, the most important thing of all is to love them and show them unconditional love and within that, my dear friends, is everything that you can do for them both physically and spiritually. You see, often when people are trying to help someone who is dying, they are truly not in their hearts trying to help the dying person, but secretly they are worrying about their own mortality and their own demise. Check yourself for this way of being!

Thirdly, accept that what is happening to the person is God’s will to be done. Certainly, there are miracles, and countless people throughout time have returned from Yama’s call, from death’s door. Praying is appropriate, but pray without condition, pray unconditionally for God’s will for the person. Love the person and offer the physical help that you can give freely, and lovingly, and unconditionally, and then when you have truly offered all that you can, “Let go and let God!” That is best.

Beloved friends, it is time to always aline your will with Divine Will. Amen and OM. -Babaji
