Sometimes I write these things and they seem so common sense to me. Like doesn’t everyone intrinsically know these things. Makes me wonder if they forgot, fool themselves, prefer not to think about it or acknowledge it or simply don’t care.
I see how the world works and it all seems so maddeningly wrong. Like it’s no wonder people crack. It’s no wonder suicide and legal (alcohol/weed), scripted and illegal drug addiction is so prevalent. Like I totally get that.
Because this world runs so contrary to the best humans are capable of and it really can fracture minds, break heart and ruin souls how it exists now.
My daughter asked me my take on the afterlife. I told her what I know for myself to be true but I said if I had it my way and I hope it is true….. heaven although glorious and beautiful and absolutely beyond words amazing is made up of no matter, no separation, no people or places. It is no making love, it is no holding your baby in your arms and smelling their breath. It is no gazing into your loved ones eyes. It’s no children’s laughter.
Granted. None of this is really missed because all the emotion of love is there in a multitude unthinkable and never ending. Still…. all the same….in my version of the afterlife I would be surrounded by people I love, in a beautiful world, where there isn’t all the things that make this world unbearable, but only all the things I most love about it. A distinct place and time within a body and all the senses I have plus so many more.
A place where my heart, body and soul are safe and everyone is treasured for who they are. A brother and sisterhood of enlightened beings full of love and joy.
Maybe it sounds trite or boring….. but it brings tears to my eyes to think of how truly majestic a place that would be….. to me at least.
I can feel it inside my being so strongly, as if I actually know this place, I can even picture fragments of it. Maybe because I’ve thought of it so often, especially recently.
Makes me wonder……
It all makes me wonder. 🤔🤔🤔
