I believe in life after death
I believe all beings have souls
The soul is that which uses the body as a tool to interact with the substance,matter,environment it is born into/amongst
Many people believe they are mereley the body they inhabit and live accordingly - pampering to physical wants and vanities.
".........To die is different from what any one supposed, and luckier."
To One Shortly To Die
From all the rest I single out you, having a message for you,
You are to die-let others tell you what they please, I cannot prevaricate,
I am exact and merciless, but I love you-there is no escape for you.
Softly I lay my right hand upon you, you just feel it,
I do not argue, I bend my head close and half envelop it,
I sit quietly by, I remain faithful,
I am more than nurse, more than parent or neighbor,
I absolve you from all except yourself spiritual bodily,
that is eternal, you yourself will surely escape,
The corpse you will leave will be but excrementitous.
The sun burst through in unlooked for directions,
Strong thoughts fill you and confidence, you smile,
You forget you are sick, as I forget you are sick,
You do not see the medicines, you do not mind the weeping friends,
I am with you,
I exclude others from you, there is nothing to be commiserated,
I do not commiserate, I congratulate you.
