“At one magical instant in your early childhood, the page of a book—that string of confused, alien ciphers—shivered into meaning. Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; at that moment, whole universes opened. You became, irrevocably, a reader.” –Alberto Manguel

The Great Divide

Hey.. Peeps.. :) We all fear "Death-The Great Divide" philosopher "Jiddu Krishnamurti" Has written in his book- "On Living And Dying": Death is around us, its something so sure.. n we keep on avoiding it taking medicines, routine check-ups, following fitness regimes, praying, n what not..!! J. Krishnamurti Said: we don't fear death, its the fear of the things we are attached to.. Is it??

We live the way we want, n we are comfortable in our own skins.. no matter if other peoples accept it or not.. We all have dreams n wishes to come true before we die.. I too have, I have a list of wishes n dreams.. yea!! It really doesn't matter whatever language we speak, whatever country we live in, or whatever lifestyle we follow.. we all feel the same for same kind of experiences.. "We are common in souls" n this matters alot!!

Dr. Raymond Moody; a psychologist, medical doctor n author of "Life After Life" says: there is life after death, n it is a topic of debate among such great doctors. He coined the term "Near-Death Experiences" (NDE) n took the experiences of near to death peoples of all age groups.. He concluded 9 experiences: 

1.Hearing sounds such as buzzing  
2.A feeling of peace and painlessness  
3.Having an out-of-body experience  
4.A feeling of rising into the heavens  
5.A feeling of traveling through a tunnel  
6.Seeing people, often dead relatives  
7.Meeting a spiritual being such as God  
8.Seeing a review of one's life  
9.Feeling a reluctance to return to life

    I guess there is a life after it.. But we have no proofs.. We don't have proof of God as well but we do believe!! People generally consider "13" as unlucky number.. some people concern it as the "death code".. n in some hospitals room number 13 is made as "morgue".. Some people badly suffer from "Triskaidekaphobia" (i.e.an abnormal fear of number 13). Well in "The Last Supper" there were 13 peoples: 1 Lord Jesus n 12 Apostles!!

    So this is how the mystery of death continues.. I remember few lines written by "Omar Khayyam" (a Persian mathematician, astronomer, philosopher n poet):
    "Strange- is it not?- that of the myriads who;
    Before us passed the door of darkness through,
    No one returns to tell us of the road;
    which to discover we must travel too."

    I think every stage of life has its own value, n we must welcome all stages whole-heartedly.. Remember "7 Ages Of Man" by Shakespeare ?? Shakespeare was "gnomic".. I wonder what a man he was, super intelligent!! Some peoples are always alive in our souls even after their death.. some become "Delebs" like Michael Jackson, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley!! 

    Life brings all kind of surprises.. just remember "Both Shall Pass" (either sorrow or happiness). Signing out.. may God bless y'all.. :)
