Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:
Ideas Are Eternal and Real:
Manifestations Are Temporary and Unreal
Here’s another truth about manifestations: they don’t last. Isn’t it true that both you and, say, a car, will “die” or disintegrate after something called time takes place? This brings us to another question: What is death? If everything is energy, what happens to that energy in death? After all, doesn’t the universal law of conservation of energy state that energy cannot be created or destroyed? Of course, we know our material form turns to dust and is recycled back to molecules and atoms that merge with the air and earth. In that sense, our material energy is transformed, not destroyed. But the question remains: why do we perceive death? To answer that, we have to discuss the difference between real and unreal.
