What changes have taken place and we are forced to face our own mortality? You may have experienced the loss of a loved one or you have had a close brush with death yourself. It may be that neither of these experiences have happened to you but thoughts on your own mortality do play on your mind. Regardless, an event has taken place in your psyche to cause you to think on the fact that your life on this earth is not endless.
As an example there are numerous people that have had a near death experience and saw things, real or imagined, to lead us to believe that our Soul does go on. Let us assume that this experience was 20 years ago and life experiences have dictated that these visions you have seen cannot be so. Many articles, people, churches, scientists and so on say that once our body expires that is it for us. There is also the church, Bible to say that we are nowhere until the day of awakening takes place, when all will be awoken.
Does it all end just like that, what was the purpose of it all? Our children, family and friends are the only ones that will remember we were ever here? Many of us want a greater purpose, is this why the different religions were created? Was it done to soothe our minds into thinking that there is more than which we shall experience in this lifetime? Is it all just a ruse to placate us, a grand effort to make us subservient? Is it all a farce and we are being led like blind donkeys down the path to stupidity?
Someone is wielding the power that forces you to conform to that which society dictates, and I will tell you that just because society dictates it, it does not make it right. I am not telling you to be a non-conformist, I am asking you to think for yourself and figure out if what they are telling you is truth? Many of us know and have the ability to see that which is real, that which our creator has ingrained upon our Souls; society works at breaking it down.
Sometimes we can become despondent from what life has thrown at us but when those times come we must remember who we are. We are not their puppets to do with as they please and we need not bend to that which they dictate we must. You may smile at them and be forced to communicate with them, and pretend that we are the same as them. But, in this we shall remember of those that are unjust; 'You are not my friend', and one day, you that do wrong shall be shown the light.
Rest assured that there is more to it than that which you are told. You will find your true meaning if your eyes are able to see and you ears are able to hear the truth. I know nothing more than what you also know, all you need do is access the knowledge that is within you.
