Yesterday I was talking to my mom and aunt about dying. Just dying in general.
The fact of, do you know everything that happened after you pass? Does your life really flash before your eyes?
We have all these made up ideas about what happens when you die, but none of us actually know.
We tell ourselves over and over again and convince ourselves of this imaginary truth.
But in all reality, we don’t really know.
Unless you’re really freaking and can have full out conversations with people that are already dead and have experienced it.
We use this method a lot in our life. We convince our brain and believe it to be true.
When really, it’s mainly just the fact that we want to know something. It makes us feel smart, and not clueless. We have so many mysteries in life and the scariest thing are all the possible outcomes of these situations.
Therefore, we convince ourselves of what we think and hope will happen. To subconsciously ease our mind from going to the extreme negatives potentials.
I’m trying to make this as clear as can be so that you can try to understand, and that is why I am writing and saying the same thing over and over again.
I believe that we are pained by the things that have happened to us, struggling with the things we’re going though, and fearful of what may come to be.
Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.
So, some make up other worlds of happiness and go there whenever they are stuck.
Although, some try to take this world, and make it into something it’s not.
Happiness, in this world, if it comes at all, comes incidentally. Make it the object of pursuit, and it leads us on a wild-goose chase, and it is never attained.
A Lovely Gift Called Death is basically getting you to realize this:
Once you die, you have no more questions, you have no made-up scenarios. Life is real with the Lord, complete and utter happiness, with no strings attached.
