Death can be looked at from many different perspectives, it’s just a matter of attitude, and attitude is a matter of desire, and this is the trillion-dollar question:
Where does desire come from?
I have written already about it, so I will not dwell on it. I will only say this: Desire is a matter of Spiritual Consciousness of the highest possible purpose a human can have. The power of desire resides more in our ability to open and/or close our mind and heart than on anything else, even reality itself. That’s why subjective reality is more powerful than objective reality.
Ever since I can remember I have wondered about what it would be like once our physical body dies because I simply refuse to believe that that would be the end of my existence, just like any other creature that grows, reproduces, and dies.
I have also wondered about the very first human who came up with this idea of life after death. When the first hominids appeared there was no religion, thus it cannot be argued that it was a “religious” belief or indoctrination.
How was it, then, that the very first human thought about it?
Think about about it!
If you are constrained within a time/space bubble, it is impossible for you to envision what lies beyond that time/space dimension.
The only logical explanation is that the “idea” of life after death came from outside that time/space bubble.
That outside source, can be called, as Stephen Hawkins put it “The embodiment of all physical and mathematical laws.”
Every inch of human progress, every creative thought, every unimaginable new creation, comes to us thanks to our tiny spark of Divinity of which, far too many humans, are not even aware.
Fortunately, though, our Spiritual Consciousness has grown more during the last three decades than in the last two thousand years.
I can only hope and pray for your Spiritual Consciousness to grow so that you may live a rich and fulfilling life each and every day and then look at death eye to eye and say:
“Come and get me, I’m ready for you, you may kill my body, but my Spirit will live for ever!”
