Life and Death

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: — C'hele @ 03:19

It is amazing when a person is in tune with the energies around them. I don’t know if I am, however, I found it ironic yesterday when I came upon a newspaper article whilst waiting for my drink in a neighbourhood coffee shop. Looking down on a counter littered with a plethora of newspapers, I saw a removed section of the Vancouver Sun’s Weekend Review. There, in bold type were the words, “Is there life after bodily death?” Immediately picking it up, I took it over along with my soy chai tea to a near-by table and sat down. The article began with a story about a 20th-century, prominent philosopher and staunch athiest’s NDE (near death experience). To sum it up in a nutshell, he proposed that his 4 minute death and experience, was enough evidence for him that there is indeed consciousness after death. I don’t have to be a religious individual or a scholar in order to agree. I have always believed that consciousness or the soul, is immortal. The paper quoted from Socrates about his belief that death is really a change; a migration of the soul from this place to another. Again I agree. I have always believed that intitially, we return to one major source: pure energy. And I believe that this pure energy is pure love and pure light. And this is what I tell people is my religion. I have always believed that all consciousness is part of a Universal web and that anything that emits energy is inextricably connected. We are in the long run, one and the same. I don’t know if I am making any sense here. Simon Critchley who wrote the book, “The Book of Dead Philosophers”, stated exactly what I just recently wrote about here and believe. He states that: “real philosophy should be about learning how to die” and the paper comments that “paradoxically, that is the goal of living.” Our ultimate purpose as Critchley puts it, should be “cultivating the appropriate attitude to death.”
I couldent say it any better. And it is this attitude I believe, that makes mankind to be a more compassionate, open-minded and loving human being. I think to myself that we so easily disregard the important meanings of life and death and how they rely heavily upon each other. Misunderstanding the nature of death, I think, compromises our spiritual evolvement and misleads us into unhealthy living patterns here on Earth. Perhaps this is where karma and reincarnation comes in only to stop until we understand the love/hate relationship between life and death.
