“Death, at first, feels like psychological time. There is a period when you retain the idea of camouflage time before full freedom enters in, and a small lapse before orientation is possible.
“The use of psychological time will make the experience of death much less frightening. You will already have learned to recognize the spacious present for what it is, and the conscious ego will not be so bewildered and confused by the sudden perception that is involved.
“Just before the experience of death, timelessness, or the spacious present, begins to be perceived.”
