Let's go into an ancient Egyptian door to the after-life. Untold eons before it
was created, very early MAN was already burying their dead with flowers,
ornaments, utensils, tools, and the essence of spirituality. What triggered
such an idea in our human species?
I have seen animals mourn, pine away, and be depressed when
their companions go. Why not early MAN?
Surely our prehistoric hunter/gatherer forefathers and mothers
had brief and harsh lives. Infant mortality must have been exceptionally high.
How could they continue their searching for food and shelter watching the daily
realities of life and death? Creative MAN conjured many feelings into the eons
of raw spirituality. They saw the brevity of life as a hardship to survive.
Hence, the continuity of mind and a new, spiritual existence would be a logical
idea to bring them comfort.
Today, so many organized religions accept the concept of life
after physical death, that it has taken root to the very core of our being. We
speak about heaven (and on occasion it can be hell), as if it is a real, viable
place to encounter our loved ones after we pass. Some people claim to contact
their loved ones. Some people claim to contact other spirits. After a lifetime
of doing research on this subject...
I have become a person who does believe we continue on
consciously after the physical part ends here. Endless stories of those who
return from Near Death Experiences have me convinced that they are telling the
truth. I myself have had four Near Death Experiences. It was beyond glorious to
encounter the angelic beings on the other side. Surely, a profound belief that
has been part of MAN since the earliest of ponderings, and has lasted up to
this moment, must be a very power-filled energy!
Seek in your own minds and souls that wondrous sense of oneness
with eternity. And please share your
global thoughts with our readers?
This is for all of us who try with our hearts and souls to do the right thing. You know who you are!!! YES! Make that delish lemonade out of those very sour lemons. No one ever said the journey down here would be a simple one.
Adopt those who are worth being your family.
I do, since almost all are gone..
Did I appreciate so many who were good to me when I was a youngster?
Probably NOT! None of these photos received the appreciation they should have had while I was young. But... Getting older is a life lesson unto itself! Do I appreciate those people who were loving and kind to me now? WOW! You bet I do. Most are gone for quite some time. Many left so young. Even today, I can feel the presence of my loved ones in spirit. They watch over me and wait for my turn to be called. Do you appreciate your loved ones while you can still make them know it in life?
