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…
