I Will Carry… You With Me
The Human Race can be quite finicky, conflict-avoiding and simultaneously book-smart, reality-dumb. We are constantly exposed to God’s handiwork of miracles, rare “coincidences”, surprises and inexplicable events, yet we find ways to likewise convince ourselves we are a cosmic “accident”, with no ability to exist without our bodies.
Such is the drama and twisted fate of many human beings on this planet. I offer to you that it is highly unlikely and logically implausible for “us” to be a one-and-done species. Our minds have the ability to perform complex mathematics, remember intricate details about an item, process if/then logic flawlessly and multi-task like no other living organism. We believe we are the only living thing that possesses awareness of our own mortality. And all this ability doesn’t even broach the concept of emotions, extra-sensory perception (ESP), Near Death Experience (NDE), personal sacrifice, faith and Love. So much for being “special” I guess.
On a near-regular basis, you hear about the mother or father that gave up their life protecting that of their child, about performing super-human feats when faced with a Life or Death situation, or about “seeing” a Loved one that has passed away. Emotions so strong they produce extraordinary behavior(s) or seemingly impossible actions, yet we are to believe we evolved from a monkey; even while the monkey still exists in their static form?
Example after example exists where people provide testimony to the existence of God, whether it be sports, deathbed acknowledgements, promises made in grave situations or first-person conversations with God when tragedy occurs. All these things, concurrent with those that believe we are merely a carbon-based physical organism because they have not the capacity, pride or desire to admit there exists a deity with more power than a human being.
For someone or some Supernatural Being that doesn’t exist (God), mankind sure has spent a boatload of time, energy and resources creating things like churches, bibles, avocation (priesthood) and communication (prayer/meditation) to explain and describe a non-entity. We likewise teach our children to develop and use their imagination; that nothing is impossible and no dream is too big. Who are we kidding by claiming there is no God or eternal life? As it turns out, no-one but ourselves.
“When you strip away all the distractions of life, what remains is pure energy and consciousness”.
And, according to the “laws” of physics, energy is never lost or gained, it simply changes form and is retained forever. So, when faced with the concept of eternal life, answer this question; “Where does the energy go that generated your heartbeat your entire life”? And, if it requires energy to produce thoughts and maintain memory(ies), where does all the related/associated energy from your mind go, when you physically die? Just because something cannot be recognized by human senses, does not logically mean it does not exist.
As human beings, we need to stop resorting to classifying everything we cannot understand or explain as non-existent or simply impossible. Eternal life and our spirits/souls are anything but that and deserve the benefit of the doubt.
Life as we know it is so very much more than a finite presence classified as a highly functional organism. As long as you carry every loved one with you during your lifetime, they are indeed eternal, as are you. Be well.
