An excerpt from ‘The End of Death’
Copyright 2013 Nouk Sanchez
We are so brainwashed into believing that this reality, the ego dimension, is solid and fixed. That the 3-D world depends upon the laws of time, matter, gravity and nature. We believe that the cycle of birth and death are natural and legitimate. But I am beginning to see and experience something profoundly different.
As my mind heals, I am withdrawing my trust in ego laws. Instead I am witnessing remarkable miracles because I realize now that I am under no laws but God’s. I recognize that the body’s five senses, while manipulated by ego (fear), will unconsciously seek to affirm exactly what fear sends them to find. I will see and feel ego’s projection and not Truth. Physical discomfort, emotional pain, financial scarcity and relationship conflict. These are symptoms of trusting in ego’s perception. They are not true. Yet we accept them as truth unquestioningly.
To the degree that we independently problem-solve these challenges apart from Spirit, is the equal degree that we defend against them (invest in their reality). This then, represents the same extent that we give these illusions power over God’s Love. No wonder there is so much suffering.
Everything we see out there in the 3-D world, including our own body, is literally in our mind. There is nothing out there that is not within the mind. The question is, are we seeing it through the ego? Or are we seeing it with Spirit? If there is any concern, pain or anxiety then we are seeing an outward picture of our unhealed guilt and fear will propel our desire to firstly make the illusion real, and then attempt to fix it or forgive it. This is how the ego works at healing and problem-solving. It does not work. But true healing, the miraculous switch from fear to Love comes in each instant that we willingly bring Spirit into our awareness, asking for our perception to be healed.
This ego reality is a dream. It has no foundation except for our own agreement to believe and uphold it. If we saw through it, it would immediately be gone. So what is the glue that holds all these 3-D laws together? It can’t be outside us. It must in our mind. What is the nucleus that feeds the current ego paradigm? The answer is fear. Fear keeps time and space wearily unfolding.
There are two realities that run side by side simultaneously. Two dreams. One is the ego’s and the other is God’s Will – Love; the ego’s world of fear and Spirit’s Real World or happy dream. The Real World is here now. We don’t have to wait on time to enter it. It’s available right here, right now. It’s timeless. We can enter this paradigm in any instant that we drop within and let Love take over. An instant of forgiveness. An instant of guiltlessness within, of safety and peace; where fear cannot intrude. A moment of resting in God’s Love.
I am learning that God’s Will is only Love and joy. There is no suffering in God’s Will…none. So when I perceive a problem, pain or lack for myself or another, I remember the true cause, the source of what I appear to witness, is always the ego’s projection. In other words, my unconscious guilt is surfacing in 3-D form for one reason only. To be seen with Spirit and released. Spirit always heals the cause by reinterpreting it. This is true forgiveness, the Atonement. See the Forgiveness/Atonement process by clicking on this link
God’s Will is my Will! Amen. As my guilt disappears, so does the fear of attack, of threat. Remember that our deepest terror, the one that spawns every single fear we have, is the fear of God (Love). That’s why we cling to guilt, fear and pain, to separate and to protect us from our Essence, God’s Love as our Holy Self. The fear of punishment and the consequent desire to defend ourselves against this illusory bogey-man (God’s Love), is the basis for all suffering. What a mad delusion we made up!
All perception of deprivation and pain arises from our unconscious desire to separate from our Holy Self. In that illusory gap of separation, are all our imagined terrors. We have no idea just how powerful we are. We are God’s Self, extensions of God’s infinite Creation. We were graced with the power of “will”. We “willed” the 3-D universe into being, unfortunately using it to attempt to hide from God’s Love.
Our independent ego-will, run by fear, by deprivation and death, is what we use to defy God’s Love; not realizing that we are God’s Love. Our true Will, our true Self is in God’s Love. Unless and until we willingly return our awareness to this Love, we will suffer and die again and again. Time will continue to drag on wearily while we unconsciously seek escape from Love through the cycle of death and amnesia over and over again. All this we willed, in an insane effort to tear away from Love.
“To accept your littleness [is] arrogant, because it means that you believe your evaluation of yourself is truer than God’s.” T-9.VIII.10:9
Death is the ego’s central dream; it’s most sacrosanct defense against the memory of our invulnerability in God’s Love. In death is life harshly smitten and the ego’s will appears more powerful than God. Yet Jesus teaches that death (disease, scarcity, conflict, etc.) has already been overcome through his resurrection. What the ego hides from our awareness is that we were there with him then; and we therefore share in his victory over death now, together with every other affliction the ego has ever made.
Why don’t we believe it and live out from this conviction? Because we still choose to fear our true Self as God’s Love. We fear the Holy Self’s complete Power and dominion over all the ego made as an attack on Love. We still choose to believe what the physical senses (sent by ego) tells us is reality, and then we react or attempt to problem-solve these ego projections; anything, but to look with Spirit at the one cause of them all. We still choose to problem-solve and compartmentalize our lives independently from Spirit. We separate our relationships, finances, security, and health. Not recognizing that they all require abdication to Spirit’s guidance, otherwise the ego will continue to wreak havoc.
We still choose to seek pleasure while avoiding pain. We still choose to believe that we know our own best interests. In short, if we feel anything less than completely whole, entirely pain-free, infinitely Loved and consistently joyful, it’s because we choose to trust in our own ego will over God’s Will within. The remedy? Atonement again.
Death, while seen as both natural and legitimate, is given undivided precedence in our hierarchy of illusions. But in truth it has no power here in the dream once we undo our unconscious attraction to it.
“The ego, like the Holy Spirit, uses time to convince you of the inevitability of the goal and end of teaching. To the ego the goal is death, which [is] its end. But to the Holy Spirit the goal is life, which [has] no end.” T-15.I.2:7-9.
Once we take the concept of death out of life, we’re left with no escape from God. In other words, once death falls away, we find ourselves face-to-face with our worst fear – Life with a capital “L”. Life is God, Life is Love, Life is eternal and has no opposite. There can be no death in God’s Life. Without death to escape to, what is it that we are secretly terrified of? Think about that.
If I fully embody this teaching it will cost me the world as I know it; the ego’s world of victimization, deprivation, suffering and death. Because never again will I agree to play victim to a pseudo-reality that I made up to separate from knowing that, “I and my Father are one.” I will eventually recognize that the deepest of all fears, the one that underpins this entire ego world, is indeed the fear of discovering my Holy Self and the subsequent Power that this Self wields; a Power so great, it will undo every appearance other than God’s eternal Reality.
The Real World is here and now. In any and every Holy Instant of true forgiveness, of the heartfelt desire to heal our split mind, our unconscious wish for death is undone and the Real World pierces through the ego’s defense. There is no death.
“There is no death because the Son of God is like his Father. Nothing you can do can change Eternal Love. Forget your dreams of sin and guilt, and come with me instead to share the resurrection of God’s Son. And bring with you all those whom He has sent to you to care for as I care for you.” C-5.6:9-12
If death offers nothing except my unconscious desire for a deeper state of amnesia while rejecting God as my Holy Self…then what secret values, advantages and benefits have I projected onto the concept of death? What kind of propaganda has the ego made up to lure me to my grave?
* Is it that death provides an end to the constant change and conflict of life?
* Is it that I will be re-united with my departed Loved-ones again?
* Is it that I will feel no pain after death?
* Is it that I will “rest in peace” after death?
* Is it that death will provide relief and a chance to evolve Spiritually?
Jesus tells us clearly…
“The world is not left by death but by truth…” T-3.VII.6:11 “All forms of sickness, even unto death, are physical expressions of the fear of awakening. They are attempts to reinforce sleeping out of fear of waking. This is a pathetic way of trying not to see by rendering the faculties for seeing ineffectual. “Rest in peace” is a blessing for the living, not the dead, because rest comes from waking, not from sleeping.” T-8.IX.3:2-5
As we heal through forgiveness and recognize that we are indeed God’s Love, our direct experience in the 3-D world reflects that Love. Our world shifts; the rigid, seemingly solid ego paradigm of death slowly buckles and cracks. In its place, and shining through the cracks of forgiveness, a new World shimmers brilliantly erasing the darkened paradigm of death that the ego made. The Real World mirrors our wholly benign and trusting state of mind. When we begin to recognize that we are everything in God’s Love, then we live the experience of having every need met. We have everything because we are everything. There can be no deprivation or pain in God’s Love.
“Living is joy, but death can only weep. You see in death escape from what you made. But this you do not see; that you made death, and it is but illusion of an end. Death cannot be escape, because it is not life in which the problem lies. Life has no opposite, for it is God. Life and death seem to be opposites because you have decided death ends life. Forgive the world, and you will understand that everything that God created cannot have an end, and nothing He did not create is real.” M-20.5:1-7

These words are comfort indeed to me today. I have “struggling” with my seeming betrayal as i take my Mother out of her own home and off to a Dementia Unit.
While it is lovely to see her animated response to her new surroundings, i am up and down and all over the place emotionally!
How on earth do i reconcile my obvious ego beliefs around my obvious guilt in this situation?
What am i not seeing, or hearing?
I know i can go within and i do….. All i come up with are temporary spaces of less pain, then it resurfaces again. It has taken me completely by surprise Nouk.
Love and hugs and lots of blessings dear sister.
So this is not about your Mother; but about Merrin. Your Mother is happy as she chose her particular path, albeit unconsciously. So what causes guilt in Merrin? What is the ego’s voice telling you? What is it that you really fear?
Write it all down. Then sit with it while you open your heart to hear/feel Spirit within. What wants to be “seen” and “healed?” What is begging release?
Thank you Nouk. I am sensing that this ” as yet unseen guilt ” is connected to an unwillingness to really join with my brother (all seeming others). This is what my Mum is reflecting to me. I will sit with this and hand over and ask for divine reinterpretation. To hand over completely as you say is to trust love fully. My mother, bless her, at 93 , has found her mob! A group she feels accepted by and welcomed into. First time in her life!.
My “mob” is the family of ONE. Where i can feel and experience that joining in love.
Just gotta trust and handover!
Much love for,your healing words Nouk
Beloved Nouk, and I want to tell you I love you dearly without ever having met you. I read yours and Thomases book, I listened to you, mainly thru the Kenneth Boks sites.
And now I read your answer to Merrin – What wants to be “seen” and “healed?” What is begging release?
You could have written exact the same answer to me. It would not be about my mother, but about a husband, a son, grandchildren, with other words all my special relationships including the one to myself. And then resistance enters, and if it is strong as most of the times, then I cannot “see” what needs to be healed, released. I judge myself as being lazy, mentally,emotionally, while I can be very busy during my days. I judge myself as being indifferent, and I know it is a protection seemingly caused by a childhood drama, actually already as a baby.
Wow, I get this third state (HS presence)while writing to you. The healing/release comes from forgetting “MY STORY”. That is what needs to be released, everything that has to do with “me”, my shoulds, my shouldnt’s, my wants and so on!
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
With love, Ursula
With love, Ursula
Please know that I whole-heartedly join you and Spirit in releasing the story; the story the ego uses to protect you FROM Love itself. Where two (or more) gathered in His Name, there healing is!
Be kind, Loving and gentle with yourself. You will willingly let it all go when you are ready. Trust…
And you are Loved dearly!
In much Love and Joy,
Amen Nouk! Thank you, is all I can say. Any other words would just be wordy and gushy on my part . . . I am sighing with gratitude and love.
And I sit with you in gratitude and Love, Marianne…
Thank you for coming back to the 3D world just when I needed to hear exactly what you wrote and that I read just NOW. I have been growing along with you on this Path and needed the ‘next installment’, today. Between Paul’s channelings, Barbara Griffin and a few other unbeknownst-to-themselves teachers, I have gotten through. Now I am reunited with Truth in the words that you convey with such confidence and I remember our Oneness. Thank you, Dear Nouk, for listening Within so that I do not ‘go without’. Blessings and Abundant Love,
So happy this helped Triskana!
I’m not really “back” as yet. Going deeper into the cave again…
And thank you and Paul for the Divine Christmas gift! Can’t wait to play it!
Infinite Love and gratitude,
I’m totally with you on this, Nouk; as I said before, you have a very crisp understanding and a great talent to convey this message to the people on the path.
I am in this space right now, but didn’t break it yet. I understand mentally what is all about, yet fear shows up whenever I try to step out of the box. What I learned in the past years is that fear is deeply entrenched in our body’s chemistry and it creates kind of addiction of the body to the chemicals that trigger the feelings of fear. Letting go of the feelings of fear changes the chemistry of the physical body too, but the the process is slow, like for a drug addiction. There are receptors on the cells surface that feed with fear chemicals and they trigger events to release those chemicals as”food”. This explains me why the awakening to Truth is a process and not an event, even though I eagerly want to be an event. I think we all experience a form of addiction to fear, but I am certain that Spirit permanently guides us how to step out of it. Working with the Attonement process helped me a lot during the past months and I have to credit you for rising it to my awareness.
Many thanks and blessings,
Thanks for sharing Leonard…
Thank you Nouk. I read this article last night and had another major breakthrough when I asked myself the question, the big question you offered us. Before I continued reading, I sat with this question for just a second with J. “I Fear My Power!” The door opened wide and up came from a deep well the reason I feared my power and how I condemned myself for using my power unwisely and destructively. I destroyed Heaven/Home and All Held Sacred. So utterly bereaved, I exiled myself and bound my power. Victim-hood became my creed and I’d kept myself tiny and dense within it. I’ve held onto the non-reality of this world because I believed I had nowhere else to go to nor deserved if there was. Clarity! I cried with compassion for myself, for All of Us who have been harboring this imagined belief. J’s comment was “it’s been there a long time.” And I gave it all to Him and accepted the Atonement.
Bless you Nouk for asking the question so we may know the answer as an experience and forgive fully.
With Deep Love and Gratitude,
Brenda, your miraculous discovery is a teaching on its own! Thank you for sharing with us…yes, no wonder deep down that we feel terrorized by the thought of discovering and weilding the infinite Power of God that we are (under the ego).
Dear Nouk, Many thanks for drawing such a sharp and clear picture
about what it’s all about. Just today I was r eading in the Course Ch.15 that the Ego made the world as an escape from GOD. So paradox we are yearning for Love and Oneness but run far away from it by making this 3-D picture.
Big hug and Love to you, my dear sister,
Thank you Brigitte. We are waking up! Amen.
Warm hugs and Love,
