Before dying III- Antes de morir III

But whoever is assisting someone over the threshold must be qualified to do so. This simply means that the personality must be absent. In assisting someone to die, one must die with them. The moment you die with the dying one, he or she is stimulated by your dying, by your giving up of all qualifications. Timeless presence, love, has the power to free the dying person from the residues of identificaion with the phenomenal wold. There is no place at all in this assistance for feelings of sadness, pity, fear, nor is there room for talking. All this keeps the dying one grasping onto the objective world.

Pero el que ayude a alguien a atravesar el umbral [de la muerte] debe estar cualificado para hacerlo. Esto significa simplemente que la personalidad debe estar ausente. Para asistir a alguien a morir, uno debe morir con él o ella. En el momento en que uno muere con el que está en este proceso, la persona es estimulada por tu morir, por tu abandono de toda cualificación. La presencia atemporal, el amor, tienen el poder de liberar al moribundo de los residuos de identificación con el mundo fenoménico. En esta asistencia no hay lugar en absoluto para sentimientos de tristeza, compasión, temor, ni tampoco para el habla. Todo esto incita al que está muriendo a aferrarse al mundo objetivo.
