It takes courage to live on Earth. Every day you live, you have some awareness that it’s possible you won’t wake up the next morning. You could die without having a chance to say goodbye or one last kiss.
No one knows the moment when death will knock on his door. Death could be imminent, and then its arrival could be postponed. No one knows when the bells toll. Without notice, without warning, without a perused written or verbal contract, the life of your body can be whisked away in the blink of an eye. There is no insurance policy to prevent death of a body. An insurance policy would not be worth the paper it is written on. Sometimes so-called death has a quick-claim. Sometimes death reverses its decision.
Your body wears no armor. How much protection against death does skin give? No guarantee comes with your body. You have no certain lease on physical life. Uncertainty is your middle name. Uncertainty befits you.
You could have protested about life all your life-long, and, yet, at the moment of death’s arrival, you resist. You fight tooth and nail. Death seems to be like a bully and a trickster. Show-off death. You may not have wanted to keep your life that much, yet you sure don’t want to give it up now. Life was lovelier than you knew. Death has no right to take you away from this life. For all intents and purposes, this particular life is the only one you know. It is precious. Your life ought to have rights.
Added to this sacrilege, it is bruited that God, beloved God Almighty, set it up this way. To think of it, God made death one of the laws of life. When death arrives, there is not a thing you can do about it. No one can.
Yet, know, in so-called death, your soul comes forth. We can call this resurrection.
No matter that all bodies born also die in whatever manner it is written, whether typical or rare or even unheard of, death has all its privileges, and your body only seems to be sacrificial lamb offered on the altar.
The fact is that your body lives until it dies. This is true, make no mistake about it. And, yet, you are eternal. What do you think everlasting life means? Attached as you are to the density of your body – oh how essential your body has become to you – you have counted on your body to move you from one place to another. How will you get anywhere, you wonder, without your body to take you there?
You may have always wanted to be able to teleport yourself without making reservations and rushing and carrying luggage or losing it. Death gives you this opportunity. You can instantly be anywhere your soul takes you. You can be anywhere, everywhere. You may not be seen, yet you can see.
Of course, your beloved soul sees differently from the way you as a personality have been accustomed to. In death, you are in a different ballgame with unbounded rights and privileges. Life for you without body and without restriction is right for you anon, and life in a body with restriction is right for you while you are on Earth.
There was so much you didn’t understand while you voyaged on Earth. You will see a whole new world now.
Please understand that life on Earth has a great many blessings, and the continuance of your life without a body in tow also has a great many blessings. You are not un-alive. You are still learning every day to your advantage even as days are not named, and time isn’t measured.
The day of your death is not a sorry day, except that is how you see it, and the whole world seems to see it. You will see it differently anon. Everyone will. Everyone will find out that death isn’t a calamity but a blessing.
