A Quote of Wisdom – “The Error in the Literal Belief of an Afterlife” – 4/30/2020

There are many who thrive upon the word “evidence” to support there being something of “existence”. When does something of non-existence, ever become something of existence, without belief? What does not exist, must require belief, for it to exist. It is not delusion, though is simple belief, because it is as loose as love is free. As free as a heart can be given to someone who is alone, or as free as some sentiment of compassion given unto someone who is suffering, all things of this nature are simply done, because we can. We love because we can, and we believe because we can. There is no reason, nor an excuse, nor a need, to believe when it is as free as love.

The afterlife is one such example of science believing it needing “evidence” to support its existence. Though, what the exact definition of an afterlife is, that can be connected to whatever science desires for evidence, can be understood from death. As well, from surrounding life, because after someone has died, it is life that remembers the life. Life does not remember the death, because remaining life has not experienced death. We do not remember failure, because the only failure was the one that killed the life off. Therefore, the meaning of an “afterlife” is in those still alive to remember the one who had died. A funeral, where memories are cherished, and where memories are simply remembered. That is an afterlife. It is history being written, and a dead person’s memory “living on” into eternity. So long as there are people to remember that dead person who once lived, there is an afterlife.

There is “life after death”, when we remember what the person did in their lives, their achievements among children and other creations, as these things are treasured. If a Christian will deny this, then are they blind when reading Biblical verses? Within Biblical versus, it is written over again that love is the eternal emotion. God reigns over love, as it is said. Humans only crave evidence, because humans have flesh. They have evidence of their own flesh. Flesh and matter, are examples of evidence. Therefore, humans crave evidence, are the creators of the fields of science, because of a human’s natural appetite, in terms of desire and craving. To crave knowledge, is to simply crave. In what is of God, of love, these are non-existences, that can only turn into existence, through belief. We believe in love, the same way as we believe in God, or in the same way as we would believe in anyone we, in one moment, say is never there for us. We simply believe in their existence, when we trust them.

Love is not an emotion to be taken literally, because it is an emotion without mass, without matter. It has no physical form, meaning it is of no existence. The afterlife is a place of nothing imagined, though is what surrounds us, being remaining life. For what makes love eternal, is how those memories last in the hearts of those who loved the dead individual. Even if everyone hated the dead individual, because the dead individual was evil, we would not remember their evil. They were alive long enough to be criticized, and now that they are dead, it is too late to better them. That is where the forgiveness takes place. We are bound to forgiveness, when no one can hate death, though will love life.
