Seize The Day
Live for the moment
With nary thoughts of yesterday or tomorrow’s
Religious dogma teaches when you die you either ascend to the heavenly realms or you burn for ever in fiery torment.
Your fate depends upon how you lived your life on this earthly plain.
Most religions teach that after death we are as if we were sleeping, having neither thoughts or the privilege of any of our senses.
Yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes.”
They give us the hope (an illusion ?) of being awakened through resurrection. Than we are judged by the ONE and all powerful creator of Heaven and Earth.
We are supposedly in his book of Good things and Bad things. This has throughout history put fear in the hearts of those that follow these teachings.
I was taught if you were not among the so called anointed class of 144,000 you had choices.
You either could live forever on a paradise earth or you indeed would invariably just cease to exist.
Therefore I ask ?
In lay terms IF we cease to exist, what is the difference ?
Our senses have been taken from us.
We rest eternally.
We feel nothing because we are non-existent.
(SIGHT) We see no more extraordinary sunrises or sunsets
(SMELL) We no longer linger on the essence of the rose
(HEAR) We no longer perceive the roar of life
(TASTE) We do not salivate over food that sustains us and gives us our strength
(TOUCH) We do not feel the pain of the thorn nor the experience the acquisitiveness of the petal.
The faculties of sight, smell, hearing, taste, and touch have ceased
I live my life in the moment and I cherish my loved ones with all my heart
I do not fear dying.
I have lived many lifetimes.
I believe we are created by a higher power.
We strive too Live, learn and pass that wisdom before we cease.
Our knowledgeable memories go with us.
Our stories evaporate into the mist.
