Afterlife?

Why bother ourselves with what in unknown?

That can become ones' life's mission and we will miss the real important moments.

Before-life...is that a word? Word!

Present-life is where’s it’s at.

Be present.

Agreed, but easier said than done, at least for me.

Why can't you stay in the moment, the now?

I enjoy 'art writing', and then seeing my opposition scoff off my work as "meme threads". Apparently these days any and all forms of web graphics are "memes" to certain folks now. And if you inject any humor into your writing then they'll use that as a copout to having to deal with arguments that are impossible to debunk.

Little do they know it only adds to the personal satisfaction reaped from the total projects.

It is life itself that is the mystery, forget dragging in contemplation of the afterlife.

And if, in life, I have experiences that defy what is common taught, assumed and accepted from it proves to fall short should i not ponder that aspect of slewed reality?

At times it is possible, however, the call of daily work and family life often leads me to fears for the future and regrets for the past.

As long as the pondering doesn't become one's priority.

I was in that place for a long time, but have come out of it by just letting life flow as it will. Worrying just takes away the joy of life and you will miss out on those special moments because of it.

I agree fully. Old habits are hard to break, and mental habits are particularly vexing. I will continue to strive.

Then again they do say that "one picture is worth a thousand words", so I don't know where they are coming from...oh yes I do...single-themed-paradigm valley.
