Afterlife

I don’t think I’ve ever been an agnostic. I’ve always thought there’s a superior power, that this is not the real world and that there’s a world to come.

~ Bob Dylan

I haven’t written anything on here for a long time, I am not sure if that is a good thing or bad, but I thought I would put it right just in case.

I have no idea why, but I have been thinking a lot about the afterlife recently. I don’t think it is because I am scared of dying but more something along the lines of is there really anything there in the afterlife. I cannot get round the fact that one day I am going to die. It may not happen today or tomorrow, but one day my brain will go out of business and my heart will cease to beat. Will I then fall into an endlessness of nothing or is there some secondary level which I will levitate to?

There has been a time in my time when I have considered Bob Dylan to be God but I have read just about all his lyrics/poems and if he is, then he is giving nothing away to the casual reader.

I did read online a while ago about a study of children revealing they had memories from a former life – so maybe after we die we simply come back again for a second innings. In the study these children were able to remember things from former lives which they couldn’t possibly know in this life. When checked, it was found that a large proportion of these memories were found to be true. So maybe reincarnation is the answer?

Our fears are brought with us from a former life, say some experts on the subject. So if you are scared of water, then maybe you drowned in a former life. Personally, I am scared of heights so maybe I fell from a great height and this is how I met my previous end. Perhaps these fears are brought with us to stop us from making the same mistake twice.

The annoying thing is; who do you ask to find the answer?

Scientists are always being proven wrong by later scientists and religion doesn’t hold the answers or is unwilling to give them.

I guess I am going to have to wait and find out…

According to my parents, I was born in Birkenhead, Merseyside at a very early age, sometime in 1960. I have no recollection of these events, so I have always had to take their word for it.

One Commnet on “Afterlife

  1. Hi
    I love the picture of Dylan and I love the quote. Very helpful
    I spent my teens playing Dylan on my acoustic guitar. Now I play his songs on my electric guitars….my wife bought me a telecaster for my 60th birthday….it’s a time machine.

    Keep the faith
    In Bliss
    Will
