A Sensory Encounter with my Book


“Not in Vein”

Miracle within my Soul

 

The Context of eternity

Why?

“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.

    My amazing friend
    Accepting your going to die is not easy
    Especially when certain people tell you there’s nothing wrong
    Because everyone wants to live and so do I
    But now I have a good medical team
    and have accepted my illness
    I don’t feel angry with anybody
    I just try my best and enjoy every moment of each day
    By praising the people I love for that is my life
    I don’t understand why I get so few comments
    But I keep on trying I always will to the end of time
    Have a beautiful Sunday

    • Daniel, Thank you for your thoughts and God bless you. I genuinely believe that if you frame death in the LARGER picture of existence and eternity, and truly view it as a Transformation and not an “end”, our physical life pales in comparison to the magnificence and glory of God’s presence and healing. Every single thing that we experience here on Earth has significance and it is simply our purpose to recognize and determine the “why”… There are no coincidences in life, of that I am most sure. Be well.
