I’m at the Life Review. (You’ll get your chance.) In mere MOMENTS, every single act, and thought I EVER did and had was all around me, as if happening for the first time! And yet, the entire thing happened so FAST, it was over before my brain could register it. But I remembered it all!
As if that wasn’t strange enough, I saw things as if I was on the receiving end of things I had said and done. To me it seemed like the effects were amplified somewhat. It’s that or…some of the things I had said…cut to the bone? Or were those “recipients” just (too) “sensative”? …No, that was not the answer.
I would come to a place, in this…thought stealing review, that I would feel I needed to…defend my actions. Over and over I would begin by saying, “yeah, but”…and that would be the end of the moment, moving on to the next. After this had occured several times, I realized that my “yeah, but” “explanation” carried no weight. It wasn’t that it was a “lie”, more like…you should have known better, AND WOULD HAVE, if truly coming from a place of love!
There it is…the “afterlife’s” standards for admission, and now you know, when your turn comes, that “but.” is always the end of the sentence.
…But I make a bunch of money doing it!?
Do you want to know how that phrase FEELS, once you are in…the next life? Just replace the word “money” with the word “gravel”.
Have you ever thought about your own future? Of course you have.
Have you ever noticed that most “religions” talk about a “Good” place, and a “Bad” place that each of us will go to, after “death”. (…why do they call it death, when, either way, they say, you’ll live on?)
I’m contemplating how to say ONE thing (like…Love is the answer to every question…) … that would get people to seriously consider their own outlook on life…and “death”… and FUTURE. What came up? Never mind what Gods’ name is….nevermind what location, exactly, you will be going to. It would seem that living a life based on caring and helpfulness would be better than ALL the other alternatives! …then everybody comes out ahead. Remember…the one belief, that most people have about life after …”passing”… it’s a continuation.
Well, if you’re not sure that Jesus, or Budda, or others, were on to something, THINK ABOUT THIS… “The End” IS NOT “THE” END! Actually, there is NO end! ….Now what?
(Another message from (a quite opinionated person, as a result of being …) a “near” death survivor.)
Another take on, “Grandma said she went to bed 49 and woke up 60!”.
“I can tell you every players’ statistics for the last 20 years.”
“I’ve seen all those movies so many times, I know all the words.”
“I hardly ever drive that 30 year old beauty, but I always wash it weekly. Isn’t it a beaut?”
Those phrases don’t belong to this writer. There are, inevitably, others that DO, though. I wish there weren’t…..
Why are we, as individuals, here? On this planet, at this time, it might seem that we are here to help the less fortunate. Sure, happiness figures in there, somewhere….marriage, children, maybe.
Are we here to own “stuff”? It seems that the more “stuff” you own, the more time it takes to maintain it…leaving…”no” time!
It’s been said, by many an old “geezer”, “My whole life’s been wasted!”. It’s not all that uncommon, at the end of life. It is also not uncommon to hear that from (“near”) death survivors! Why would that be? Maybe because they’ve been shown what REALLY matters, and what doesn’t matter, in the long run.
If life was really as it is presumed to have been meant to be, helping others would not be necessary! Once there WERE “others” in the “Garden of Eden”, WHO would have NEEDED help……if the change from bliss never happened?? Can THAT be the “reason” we’re here, to love…to help? Really?
When it IS time to “meet my Maker”, it seems like knowing players’ stats won’t be real important. It would be highly unlikely that the first thing out of Gods mouth will be, “How’s that antique car looking?”, either. The Almighty and we will immediately start going over the funniest movie quotes of all time…..right?
In a troubled world there are a multitude of ways to “waste” time. Having personally seen (and understood!) that the life you live now, has a LOT to do with the “life” you live…after…life…act for act, thought for thought….any “thinking” person might try to…spend time, here….wisely, for sure. What do you think?
