Focus on fire rising through your form from the toes up……..
Just lie down. First conceive of yourself as dead; the body is just like a corpse. Lie down and then bring your attention to the toes. With closed eyes move inwards. Bring your attention to the toes and feel that the firs is rising from there upwards, everything is being burned. As the fire rises, Your body is disappearing. Start from the toes and move upwards.
Why start from the toes? it will be easier because the toes are very far away from you “I” from your ego, Your ego exists in the head. You cannot start from the head, it will be very difficult so start from the farthest away point. The toes are the most faraway point from the ego. Start the fire from there. Feel that the toes are burned, only ashes remain, and then move slowly , burning everything that the fire comes across. Every part – the legs, the thighs – will disappear.
And just go on seeing that they have become ashes, The fires is rising upwards, and the parts it has passed are no more there; they have become ashes. Go on upwards, and lastly the head disappears. Everything has become ashes., the dust has fallen unto dust…until the body burns to ashes but not you.
You will remain just a watcher on the hill. The body will be there – dead, burned ashes – and you will be the watcher, you will be the witness. This witness has no ego.
This technique is very good to reach the egoless state. Why? – because so many things are implied in it. It appears simple; it is not so simple. The inner mechanism is very complex. First thing: your memories are part of the body. Memory is matter; that’s why it can be recorded. It is recorded in the brain cells. They are material part of the body. Your brain cells can be operated on, and if certain brain cells are removed, certain memories will disappear from you. Memories are recorded in the brain cells. Memory is matter it can be destroyed. And now scientist say it can be replanted, it can be transplanted again.
Sooner or later we will find ways so that when a person like Albert Einstein dies we will be able to save his brain cells. And those brain cells will be able to transplanted into a child and that child will have all the memories of Albert Einstein without going through all the experiences. It is part of the body and memory being part of the body and if the whole body is burned and has become ashes, you will not have any memory.
