'Fear of death is due to body consciousness'. Soul consciousness is first step to create right karma and hence a good fortune. What is the accurate meaning of Compassion? What is best you can do in situation when you lost your near ones. > Here is an email we receive and responded. They asked for councelling . Here it is.

Respected Sister Shivani
I have been watching and listening to your Awakening series and other classes for some time now.
Today a very unusual thing happened with me in Office. As I reached Office in the morning I heard a bad news of a collegue who expired suddenly. Though in the same organisation we had never worked together she being in some other department and another floor but almost of my age, I on hearing about her sudden demise started feeling very uneasy my head started swirling and my hands and feet became cold and started to shiver. My other counter parts did all that they could do to pacify me but that heaviness is still there in my head even after 12 hours.
I have never been so weak in situations where I have lost my close family members or friends. But I am totally disoriented today.
Why do you think this has happened. And how do I control myself in such situations.
Your email letter is received and read. Here is our response.
Feeling others feelings is a natural ability of human soul. But this ability should be used correctly. One who uses it correctly will be a help for others. And one who uses it incorrectly will disturb the self and others.
The right way to uses this gift of God is for example you feel compassion for a poor who is hungry. So should you buy them food or should you sit and cry for them? You know the answer. Similarly, when a soul left a body, it is forever. So if you want to give happiness to them, give it when they are present in the body (alive), not after death.
Due to ignorance of not knowing that Soul never was created and never will die, we become sad upon someone's demise. Surely, even after the knowledge of soul also, due to some attachment, we may again become sad. Hence a practice of Soul consciousness is needed.
You are a soul. I am a soul. We took this body. We had another body before this and after this, we shall have another body. Body is just a medium to perform the karma. It is know already that Soul takes the results of karma in its next birth. So focus only on YOUR KARMA, not of others. You the soul is reading this letter with physical eyes. (Source: Law of Karma)
Dear Priya, the time of birth and the time of leaveing the body (death) is fixed.and this is for a good reason. Knowing this, you should not be sad. Whatever time we have, we must use it is self and other's good. Do only good. What is good? A karma which empowers the self and others, which benefits and uplift and which is free from 5 vices, is called a Good karma.
Death is as necessary as Birth. Shiv baba explains: ''Now you children are studying to achieve a fortune in that new world, in which there exist no sorrow.''
