It is at the time when bodily inertia asserts itself, at the same hour when Nature finishes her work, that the Wise Man finally begins his own. Let us scrutinize its depths, rummage thru the darkness which covers it, + the Void will instruct us. Birth teaches us few things, but death, from which life is born, can reveal all. It alone holds the keys of the laboratory of nature; it alone delivers the spirit, imprisoned in the midst of the material body.
Shadow, bestower of light, sanctuary of truth, asylum violated by wisdom, it hides + jealously w/holds its treasures from timorous mortals, the indecisive, the sceptical, all those who disregard or dare not confront it. For the philosopher, death is simply a transformation like that of the caterpillar into butterfly, which links the material plane to the divine. It is the earthly door opened to the heavens, the link between mature + divinity;
it is the chain which joins those who yet live to those who have passed on. And if human evolution, in the physical sense, can of its own will dispose of the past + present, then in its turn it is death alone which belongs to the future. Consequently, far from inspiring a feeling of horror or repulsionin the Wise, death, the instrument of salvation, appears to him both useful + necessary. And if we are not allowed to allot to ourselves the fixed time for our proper destiny,
at least we have received the permission of the Eternal to call it forth from the grave matter, in accordance + submission to the orders of God, + to the will of man. One can thus understand why the philosophers place so much insistence upon the necessity of material death. It is thru death that the spirit, imperishable + always active, stirs up, sifts, separates, cleans + purifies the body. It is from death that there proceeds the possibility of assembling the purified parts,
to build w/ them a new lodging place, finally to transmit to the regenerated form an energy which it does not possess. - Fulcanelli
