In the phase of death, there is a period of time when the consciousness is severed from the body. During that phase, the consciousness that is free from the body and has the potential to learn a lot about itself, to establish itself cognizantly in the state of death, and to harness that.
Consciousness exists outside of constraints of time and space. It is able to be anywhere: in the human body and outside of it. In other words, it is non-local in the same sense that quantum objects are non-local. Death of consciousness simply does not exist. It only exists as a thought because people identify themselves with their body.
That uncreated expanse of space is the Absolute. It is not a space with stars and galaxies, it is the space of the Absolute, which is inside. In other words, in these three phases that occur after death there is a strong opportunity to experience the nature of the Absolute. Why? Because we are freed of the physical body, the personality, and the vital body. Reflect on that. The physical body is a cage. If anyone here wants to leave the physical body right now and go into the Absolute, could we do it? If we want to go consciously out of the body in the astral plane, right now, could we do it at will?
If we cannot project ourselves from our body when we are healthy, at peace and serene, at home, then unquestionably we will not be able to do it when we die, at a time when we may be very sick, weak, injured, afraid, in an unfamiliar or dangerous place, or afflicted with other difficulties. That means we are in trouble. If you expect to be able to consciously leave your body at death, then you should be able to do it right now.
We start where we are; we are beginners. We start working on improving our vigil state, improving our dream state, and learning to meditate. Those abilities provide us the foundation to start learning to project the consciousness out, at will, and then we can begin learning to manage ourselves and navigate in other dimensions.
