Eliza Mada Dalian responds to Ray Kurzweil (the renowned futurist who journeys the world offering his vision of a future in which we will merge with our machines, can live forever, and are billions of times more intelligent…all within the next thirty years):
It’s time for the scientist and the mystic to join hands if we are to survive and transform into a higher and more intelligent species.
The human quest for immortality is most often misunderstood by the mind. The mind, which is part of the illusion created by the ego and its identification with physical reality, is afraid of death. Thus, the ego longs for the immortality of the body because without the body it cannot survive.
Finding immortality means finding our true inner Being, which is never born and never dies. All we need to do to find it is look inside and transform our unConsciousness into Consciousness. The way to do that is through introspection and meditation. This is how humans down the centuries have experienced and know that they are immortal!
For most people looking in and peeling the layers of their unConsciousness is hard work. People are lazy, they would rather take a pill than watch their breathe, meditate and break their identification with their beliefs, emotions, conditionings, fear of death, and pain. To find true immortality we need to wake up from our deep sleep and attachment to the material world. Everything else is a deception. It is like a dog chasing its own tail.
True immortality is within the stillness of our being, or the zero point, as Quantum physics may put it, from which everything arises and into which everything returns. If we want to find immortality, we need to find our pure Consciousness.
I’m not a scientist of the outer world, I’m a scientist of the inner world where true alchemy happens! As a founder of an evolutionary new healing method, DHM, I can demonstrate to any scientist who can measure consciousness how, by simply releasing the suppressed thought forms, emotions, and beliefs from the body’s cellular memory or the epigenetic code, the body automatically heals itself and transforms unconsciousness into consciousness of inner knowing that I am immortal! Only this kind of knowing will bring peace and joy to our personal and collective lives.

Looking In: The Conscious Search
Everything within the universe, including humans, already exists in its true nature. Unfortunately, we try to discover the truth of existence outside of our own nature. Instead of looking within to find the source and mystery of existence, we focus our eyes on the horizon outside of ourselves. Whether we are aware of it or not, our genuine search for truth begins when we ask the most fundamental questions: Who am I? Where did I come from? Why am I here? Why do I do what I do? What will happen to me when I die?
To find the answers to these questions we must let go of our attachment to who we think we are. If we keep looking in and continue questioning, we will eventually realize that it is impossible to find the answers with the mind alone. It is not enough to hear or think about the truth, we must experience it for ourselves if we are to truly know it.
In zen, they call the search for Truth the search for the “original face.” The original face is our pure essence before our personalities, beliefs, and conditionings covered it like layers of the onion covering its inner emptiness. Each one of us is responsible for searching and finding the original face for ourselves. To uncover it, we must embrace the present moment and the unknown it contains.
What stops us from finding the original face is our mind’s fear of losing our ego-identity and disappearing into the unknown. We are afraid of the unknown because in the unknown our ego-mind cannot function. Out of fear, we cling to what we know and are familiar with: our past, our beliefs, and our relationships. Instead of embracing the unknown moment to moment, we avoid it by distracting ourselves with different activities like working, eating, having sex, watching TV, smoking, fantasizing about the future, etc. When we search for happiness in the future, we miss living the abundant joy that is already present inside us every moment.
To live in joy and fully manifest our true potential, we must let go of our desires and attachment to the past and the future and be excited about living in the unknown. If we can live in the unknown, no matter how afraid we are of losing what is familiar and known, all our problems will quickly vanish. The miraculous is the unknown, which is always revealed moment to moment in the stillness of the present.
The Journey into Consciousness
Health is a state of consciousness. It has nothing to do with age, illness, or even the health of the body or mind. Whether you are aware of it or not, every step you take towards healing is a step towards consciousness. Everything you do in life is part of your healing journey towards the ultimate health of your true nature.
Only consciousness can heal our pain and suffering. Each moment contains an opportunity to awaken from the suffering of the ego-mind into the health of consciousness. Our bodies are full of suppressed thoughts, emotions, fears, desires, insecurities, and judgments. These create and sustain our ego-mind. In our unconsciousness, we keep our identification and attachment to our body, emotions, desires, and the world. Many unconscious thoughts and emotions are stored layer upon layer as patterns hardwired into our body’s cells. These patterns create energetic blocks in the body and cause physical and psychological pain and suffering. We heal into consciousness by peeling away these layers.
Only in our thoughts is there happiness and unhappiness, right and wrong, birth and death. When we stay identified with this ever-changing play of opposites that only exists in our mind, we fail to see what is permanent ? the eternal presence of our being. As we get closer and closer to our being, we gradually move away from the duality of the mind and transform our ego into consciousness.
All our physical and psychological ailments point us to where we need to focus our attention so we can transform our unconscious energy into consciousness. Usually, we believe that our pain is a misfortune that needs to be fixed, but in fact, all pain (physical, mental, and emotional) is a necessary step towards becoming conscious. When we try to avoid pain, loneliness, and death, we also avoid finding our eternal being.
In a very real way, all pains are growing pains. When we are ready to heal from an unconscious belief or behavior pattern, we experience symptoms such as pain, anxiety, depression, and ill health. If we try to fix something on the outside instead of trying to find out the cause of our ailments from within, we continue to suffer. When we let go of our identification with who we think we are our body and DNA literally change.
Healing into consciousness is the most arduous task that can ever be undertaken. There are many fears, obstacles, and ups and downs along the way. You need courage and trust to face the darkness of your unconscious. If you persevere and stay committed to your awakening, the journey will become easier and you will even begin to enjoy it and be excited by it. No matter how intense your pain and suffering, if you stay devoted to your healing journey, you will undoubtedly come face to face with the miraculous universe that abides within your own being.
