The Inevitable

Death. It is inevitable. It is one of the only things guaranteed in this life….along with taxes. Regardless of who you are or where you’re from, death is certain. But what’s funny is that even though we know it’s coming, we fear it and do all we can to prevent it.

I believe the reason we fear death is because there isn’t much that we know about it. You close your eyes and eternal sleep begins….or does it? What’s on the other side? Is there even another side? Let’s think about that.

Death is defined as ‘the permanent end of all life functions in an organism or part of an organism’ or ‘the time when something ends’. When someone or something dies, the physical portion of that being ceases all functions. All physical movement ceases. But what about the other aspects of being inherent in all things? Do they cease to function as well?

The mental aspect of a being is what controls the physical. It controls the brain, which is a physical member of the body. The mind is really the invisible portion of man. In-visible or in the visible or that which is unseen. So, if the mind is unseen, then how can we say that it ceases to exist or dies?

The mind and it’s thoughts are all energy. Energy is the power or capacity to do work or apply force. Science tells us that energy is in everything or that everything is energy. Energy is never created nor is it ever destroyed. It merely changes from one form to another. So, the mind and its thoughts being energy they can merely change from one form into another. The physical organism dies but the mental and spiritual portion of man moves on. With that being said, is it unreasonable to believe in life after death? Science and religion both say no.

Life is energy. Energy is never destroyed. So, therefore life being energy cannot be destroyed but only transformed from one form to another. So, death can actually be considered the point of transformation. So, life (energy) is eternal. And even death in the physical can be considered to not so final. Because the physical organism is energy also. So, it transforms itself from one form into the next…returning to dust…to the earth from which it came.

So, to sum it all up, life merely changes from one form to another. Death is not final. It is a transformation. We fear death because we don’t know what we’re being transformed into. Maybe that isn’t for us to know right now. Cause if we did, then we’d be so pre-occupied with what we were going to do in the next life, that we’d completely ignore the one we’re living right now. Then again, we already do that, don’t we?

Those who have gone on before us are not truly gone. They are still here, just not in the form we wish…but they are still here. And we remain one with them because we are one in God. And God is All things….including energy. And He is never created or destroyed. So, to quote 1 Cor 15:55 ‘O death, where is thy sting?’
