The Meaning Of ImmortalityScience of Mind by E.S. Holmes (1926 Text, Gender Neutral Update)

To the average person, immortality means that human beings persist after the experience of physical death, retaining a full recollection of themselves and the ability to recognize others. If their full capacities go with them beyond the grave, they must be able to think consciously; to reason, will, affirm, declare, accept, reject, know and be known, communicate and be communicated with.

They must be able to travel about, see and be seen, understand and be understood; they must be able to touch, taste, smell, hear, cognize and realize. In fact, if human beings are to continue as self conscious personalities, they can do so only to the degree that they maintain a continuous stream of consciousness and self knowledge.Remembrance alone contains the link that binds one event to another, making life a constant stream of self-conscious expression.

To suppose that human beings can forget and still remain themselves is to suppose that they could cut off their entire pasts and be the same personalities as a moment ago. Only memory can guarantee personality. Individuality might remain without it, but not personality.What we are is the result of what we have been, the result of what has gone before.

Human beings, then, if they are to have an immortality worthy of the name, must continue -- as they now are -- beyond the grave. Death cannot rob them of anything if they are immortal.

  1. Today the languages of who we are identified as individually is changing as the "spiritual" environment changes in our expression of ourselves individually, locally & globally as The One Mind of God - or Universal Mind.

    Our birth process of recognition as "enlightenment or awake" is now just being recognized and discussed internationally here in 2008.

    But to suppose Humanness on us is only a dress code to be allowed in order to express the foundation of who we are as source and cause as life.

    The trick to effective cause in life is consciously knowing what to express; from where and what results do we intend.

    And so it is for immortality - just the invocation and use of the word causes and creates the realization and experience for its possibility

    If immortality is for our and It's good then immortality is a creative expression and true manifestation of Divine Mind.

    What and how it feels - huh - no clue!

I have been through the book three times over three years, and am starting it again. This is not because the material in the book is not working, but because it is working so well! The weekly lessons keep me on track and focused on what is actually true and important, and help me experience more good in every area of my life. LS
