There is a way of being, consciousness, or self-awareness that is innate in human beings and which is intuitively experienced rather than learned though intellectual effort or reflective consciousness. Reflective consciousness lights up in relation to reflections through the functioning of the body. That is, through the senses and intellectual or mental ideological constructs. A person may directly experience the nature of being that is mirrored through the reflections of the body by taking a moment to consider the loss of sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell, abstract thought, will, or emotion. That is, the loss of the functions of the body. While considering being without the mirroring or reflective process of the body ... ask what or whether awareness remains. The fear of the death of the body is essentially fear of the loss of the process of reflection consciousness to sustain awareness. 

There is a Being that is independent of reflective or mirrored consciousness and which is sustained in itself and this Being shines upon the conscience and consciousness of people so that they experience or intuit awareness that is self-sustained without regard for the mirroring process of the body. 

Through this inshining awareness, people are drawn out of the process of mirrored thought to guide and inform their relationships, interactions, and worship. Outward political, religious, and social institutional, ideological, and theological constructs of mirrored consciousness or reflective thought are come out of and no longer influence a person's relationships and interactions. Habitation in this inshining impulse is the foundation of peace and is the coming into eternal life or self-sustained being through the appearance of or inshining upon the conscience and consciousness which is the throne of God.
