Beyond Death

What Happens When We Die and How to Prepare Now to Take Advantage of It

A Book by Samael Aun Weor

Although most of us prefer to avoid the topic of death, it is an inevitable event that we must come to terms with, especially if we are serious about our spiritual development. For the experienced spiritual aspirant, death ceases to be a source of fear or uncertainty, and instead is revealed to be what it truly is: a doorway, an integral part of existence, and an opportunity to elevate our consciousness.

The ancient teachings tell us that if we want to know what happens when we die, we must look to what happens when we sleep each night. When we die we enter the same world we dream within, but instead of returning to the deceased body we are propelled towards a new birth. If each night when we sleep we practice to enter the world of dreams with awareness, then when the moment of our death arrives we will be prepared to exit the body with awareness, and be capable of influencing what happens to us after death. That is the importance of astral projection: being awake in the dimension of dreams.

Samael Aun Weor wrote this book based on his own personal experiences of this process, while awakened in both the inferior and superior dimensions. Through anecdotes and by answering questions from students, he explains the recurrence of phenomena — the mechanical repetition of behaviors, events, and circumstances — that spin the wheel of nature around and around, which is the basis of our return into new bodies, and our repeated sufferings and problems. In Beyond Death, you will learn about the process of preparing for your own death, while also learning about how to negotiate karma, understand ghosts, magic, reincarnation, the dimensions of existence, kabbalah, the role of kundalini (pentecost) in the disintegration of our defects, and ultimately, how to guide yourself towards a higher way of living, even beyond death.
