It is a common belief that humans fear death, but what if we chose to embrace life to its fullest, despite the unknown fate that awaits us? Our existence is a gift, endowed with senses to experience everything life has to offer. Yet, we have created a god in our image, a manifestation of our fear.
As time passes, our mortality becomes increasingly apparent, leading some to seek forgiveness from a divine creator for their actions. However, we continue to indulge in vices such as lust, sloth, gluttony, anger, envy, greed, and pride, as if they hold the answers to life’s mysteries.
While we may never know what comes after death, we can strive to live our lives to the fullest. Through personal experience, I have discovered that following a path to its conclusion, working hard, and making sacrifices to achieve our desires is the best way to live. Even if there is nothing beyond this life, we can take comfort in the fact that we have enjoyed every second of existence.
Our fear of the unknown often leads us to imagine an afterlife where our deeds are judged and measured. But we cannot be sure if such a fate awaits us. We must take responsibility for our lives, accept that we may need to make sacrifices, and find our own path to happiness and fulfillment.
Philosophers have written tales of those who found the correct path, but such stories are meaningless if we are unwilling to make sacrifices. It is time for us to look within ourselves and attune our senses to find our own path. In our search for happiness, we must remember that there is a significant difference between what we want and what we need.
If we are content with our earthly paradise, there is no need to fear the end. We can take comfort in the fact that we can relive this experience in another form. As we continue to spin on this water globe around a massive ball of fire, we can ask and receive whatever we desire. The key is to seek what we truly need, and we will find it.
