The moment you know your real being, you are afraid of nothing – Nisargadatta Maharaj

The fear of death is fine for accepting the identity of the body as a separate entity in the total functioning.
People are afraid to die, because they do not know what is death...the moment you know your real being, you are afraid of nothing. Death gives your freedom and power.
Awakening, or enlightenment, or liberation is nothing, absolutely nothing other than perceiving profoundly, deeply, intuitively that what we are – that which is here now – is the absolute absence of whatever is imaginable or recognizable. Nisargadatta Maharaj
