So, do you believe you are entirely separate from your spirit? If so, how will you find your way to it, and consequently "home," when your body
passes away? An interesting thing to ponder...
If you are not separate from your spirit (this is how I see it to be), and that spirit is eternal, then we have it as part of our "being"
continuously. Meaning that part of our being is already home, has been home, and will be home, as it exists beyond the constraints of
time and matter. So, in this context, if the spirit is already home, then what part of the being sees it differently? I would say it is the physical
body, and all that arises from that (thoughts, emotions, memories, etc). A part of ourselves that will never be eternal.. That part of us which
seeks to be home will never "find" it as it applies to another part of our being entirely, which is eternally "home."
Yes Age is not relevance in this and I didn't mean that in my saying. About age I simply meant that the old people (over 50) that I met, they never
get adjusted to be living in this world. Their emotionals I assume. Theie minds have lost a battle to emotions. They know ultimately they will return
and have to like it here for the time being, but their feeling still dislike it here. That's simply what I mean. As for me this feeling strikes
sometimes, I'm lucky that I doesn't strike most of the time or else I will be so stressful
As you said, you are counted in as "we" because you feel it too. Would you mind clarify your feeling?
That's exactly what I mean. The spirit is already home, but the part of the being sees it differently from the physical body, and all the senses
arise from that (thoughts, emotions, memories, and etc). Very interesting and it brings to me a question. Are we the spirit or are we only the
physical body with all the senses?
As you say that physical body with all these senses(emotions,memories,etc.)Is a part of ourselves that will never be home.. Since home is eternal
place for only our eternal spirits.
So, where is the end for us?
I mean the end for me and you who stare at blankly at these computer screens, sitting on the chairs, and seeing just square rooms. So, it means when
we die, all me and you with all these feelings and memories will end here? Sand our spirits may meet at home but eventually it maybe entirely
different because our spirits never have to touch this keyboard nor even go to pee. You get what I mean right. It's so creepy to think that who we
really are. If it means that we are only able to sense(sight,hear,touch) of what's on earth. Then when we die it's the end of me and you here. Our
memories of these beings(our identities on earth) will die with us too. If it's like that it means me and you(as we're typing here) will never
"see" our beautiful eternal home, nor smell the sweet flowers, nor live our lives there. So that means our spirit may just be another being of us.
Like twins, we share common feelings but still two entirely different people with different senses(thoughts,memories,emotions).
Or when we die, our memories and feelings here will merge with our spirit's.(Which currently home)
I have heard this from many cultures and new age. Surprising the same which goes here: that "us" there at home want to experience with differnt
worlds. But, we refuse to be there by ourselves(lazy isn't it?) So we sent out parts of our beings there. While those beings experience, feeling
emotions, have thoghts,and interacting with what's in the world. We(who are at eternal "home") interact with what's in home. So when our beings
die from earth, the fraction of our spirit return to merge with Us(who are at "home") and that's when we feel and see all what has been experienced
on earth by our beings> which refers to me and you who are typing here.
And the "we" who are at eternal "home" would be the ones who we call our higher selves.
