When the history of life on this planet is considered, it seems amazing that from an aquatic microrganism man has evolved. It seems impossible that life transformed from microrganism to fish to amphibian to reptile to bird and mammal and human. In the light of these magical transmutations, it seems reasonable to propose that man could become a being of light and love energy, a living sun. It seems that man could possibly adapt to the forces of nature so that physical death could be overcome. Simply put, immortality is achieved by transforming the physical body into subtler prephysical or light energy.
There are people in history for which this alchemy has been claimed. Essentially, this process of alchemy seems to involve contemplation of the Light. Evolutionary history has happened over millions, even billions, of years. The emerging solar culture is people who are aspiring to this state of immortal life. The process may take millions or billions of years - but surely it cannot be disproved until at least this time has elapsed, and maybe not even then!
Body of Glory
Indeed, O.M. Aїvanhov in Christmas and Easter in the initiatic tradition (pages 113-139), talks of there being a seed within the etheric body - the subtle part of the physical body, essential for life - as having the ability to become an immortal Body of Glory. This is slowly nurtured by the likes of feeling intense joy, contemplating great beauty, by unselfish giving and luminous thoughts. It is an acorn that needs to be nurtured into a great oak. He says (p.133):
"People have been able to see the Body of Glory of certain Initiates when they were in a state of ecstasy and rapture: their faces shone, light emanated from them. In this Body an Initiate is able to voyage through space, cross mountains, even penetrate into the centre of the earth, because no material obstacle can stop him. He can even act from a distance on people in order to help them. Yes, if your own physical body is broken down you can send it help, for the physical body and the Body of Glory are two different things. You can be dying, but your Body of Glory is there alive and radiant, able to reach all creatures in space. It is possible for man to be separated from his physical body and live in his Body of Glory... and live eternally. Whereas with the physical body, nothing can be done: it cannot be strong and permanent, it must grow old and weak, and die. Only the Body of Glory is immortal, because the elements of which it is made are incorruptible, there is no disintegration."
We are already Immortal!
From a different viewpoint, it is true that we are already immortal.
The spirit within is our true nature.
We need to rediscover our immortality.
"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience." (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin)
