Firstly, wishing Joe comfort for this last part of his life upon the earth.
Death! The great frontier! I must say I think about it a lot and I keep it close by. I find it better to know and confront this issue and always have
it present. It is certainly something we should all discuss. After all, it is one of the two most natural experiences we have, the other being
I can not make sense of this odd existence any way. I do not have a comfortable ride. I have to suffer a lot of anguish all the time as I am bi polar.
Sometimes I sleep more than I am awake, preferring not to be conscious as it is too much worry (sad fact).
I don't have much support from family or friends, live alone and pretty isolated. On top of that is constant fear that I will lose my home as I can
hardly afford to eat properly these days.
Have not managed to achieve those things that would bring me happiness. May be that's my fault or may be the fault of a cold, cruel and greedy world?
I do not really know.
Life is cold comfort from where I'm surveying. The only thing that makes me happy is making music. That's the best fun. I will miss that.
At worst when we die it will only be an uncomfortable few seconds and then we pass to oblivion where there is no pain and no consciousness. Was it so
bad remembering before we were born? The truth is that we have no consciousness or memory of it. It is not a painful or uncomfortable state, lol.
At best we will live on after those few seconds of leaving the body. Well that's mighty "GOOD NEWS" just as Jesus spoke. I don't know how I will
account for myself if that is the case. I am like the servant who got given the money and buried it. Hmmm, that worries me yet in this world I just
can not seem to do any better than that. There is always a lack of opportunity to do anything or help anyone. Being so isolated I can not interact
with others and do not get a chance to express myself socially. I would like to. Indeed I really want to. Anyone who asks my help gets it. I just feel
really bad that I cannot "produce more fruit". The world has become such that it is getting difficult to express oneself in any way, particularly in
a Christian way.
When death comes it is beyond our ability to swerve that order from nature and creation that it is time to leave. Just as we did not have any say in
becoming an entity and a person we have no say in how and when we leave (except for suicides that is).
Beyond the veil! Yes we must all travel through. Sweet oblivion or hopefully, a continuation of consciousness in another dimension. I am hoping it is
the latter, but only faith and longing in all truth are what I have to cling to that this is the case.
Happy travelling fellow souls in this creation!!!
