A Sensory Encounter with my Book
“Not in Vein”
Miracle within my Soul
The Context of eternity
“You see things; and you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were; and I say, ‘Why not?’”
George Bernard Shaw
At face value, obsessing about death can be depressing and difficult to contemplate. Due to our collective ignorance about the definition of life beyond what we know as human beings, we have been conditioned to view death exclusively as an event with no curtain call and a very, very final conclusion.
We have been taught that death is something associated with negativity and painful emotions, primarily as a direct result of focusing on our own sense of self and our needs as human beings. True enlightenment and one of the secrets to an unwavering faith as well as a belief in salvation is a core mindset that focuses on others, their needs and how each of us can play a part in those lives, not only giving of ourselves, but profoundly, in learning about ourselves.
Unsurprisingly, humans are overwhelmed with their physical senses that condition the mind to be self-centered, and this is fairly understandable, given the minimal and limited knowledge we as human beings have about the ‘bigger picture.’
Taking a different perspective, however and peering deeper into the entire thought process and scenario can provide much needed clarity and motivation.
Once a person is past the point of acknowledging their own mortality and physical boundaries; that is precisely the point where the conversation you have with that person in the mirror, begins to get serious and real about your faith, your spirit and soul, about your fundamental purpose in life; more importantly, about your eternal life.
Surely, it is the thought of the certainty of that mortality, an inability to change it, and the anxious realization about its inescapable arrival as well as the frustration about not knowing when it will occur, that leads most individuals toward an emphasis on the what and how of everyday life and away from any ongoing or serious contemplation of the realm of eternity.
Prodigiously, my thoughts are then followed by a sensation consumed with fear of the unknown. And typically at that point of my synapse playing ‘connect the dots’, my deep dive into metaphysics is typically extinguished.
Please don’t hesitate to Comment below or send me an email with feedback. I sincerely seek it and need it to improve. Thank you.
