The End

The End

I’ve come to the conclusion that humans fear death. But, what if I told you that the unknown left us with only one solution: to live life at its fullest. We’re given the opportunity to experience existence, gifted with senses for all the information life has to offer. Yet, we have created apagangod in our image.

Nevertheless, we continue to move forward with time, and the end gets closer every day. Our fear has led some of us to ask a father like creator to forgive our paths, and yet we follow lust, sloth, gluttony, anger, envy, greed and pride as if they’re the answer.

I don’t know what’s to come after life. But, after experimenting with my own, I’ve discovered that living life to its fullest, searching for a message and following the path that appeared to its conclusion, working harder than you could ever thought possible, and sacrificing everything to succeed; it’s the best way to live. And it won’t matter if there’s nothing after this, because you have enjoyed every second of existence.

The unknown has been our greatest fear. We try to imagine an afterlife where all of our errors will be measured and judged. But, we don’t know. Maybe this is all there is, and we’ve got to take life into our hands, and take responsibility for our efforts to obtain all of our desires, even if that means accepting that you’ve got crush a few skulls under your boots to reach the spot you’re at right now.

Meanwhile, there are philosophers writing stories about the ones who were able to follow the correct path. But, these fairy-tales mean nothing when we can’t make a sacrifice, all of those illuminated persons followed the hidden words of the All.

It’s time for us to understand a message that has been passed for centuries, finally, letting ourselves free of ideas, erasing every thought until we can attune our senses and see the path. Good luck finding your spot between unbearable suffering and happiness, just remember, you can only find what you’re looking for.

But, don’t forget. There’s a big difference between what you want to receive and what you need to have. And, if you enjoy this earthly paradise don’t fear the end, as you’ll be able to see this place over and over again. If you ask, you shall receive, and this water globe will continue rotating around a massive ball of fire for eternity.

    Whether the time spent is one day or life, to live without purpose is a slow burning hell that in the middle of an everlasting darkness. To have purpose is to live. Time becomes immeasurable and irrelevant. Life becomes an equal measure of both challenges and joy, which in the end are two sides of the same coin. As we open ourselves up to purpose, we will recognize two distinct calls. One is to righteousness the other is not. Beware of evil for it is a cage unto itself taking all you can give, unsatisfied with what you offer, and always seeking more. It is a destroyer. Righteousness is creation. It builds and grows. It sustains us with its challenges and nourishes us with its solutions.

      That’s nice Fred. I am reading the dark world of Sebastian after trying too hard to escape. It is interesting so far.

    Hi! I think most will concur that The Bible tried to give us a very interesting and logical way to live a life without much fuss. I mean it was not just a fairy tale when God said He worked on 6 days and He rested on the last day because what He created was good. It is a message to all of us, to work in a way that we end up liking what we worked on or at least feel satisfied to a certain degree that we would like to take rest. He could have simply rested or He could have simply created endlessly. But there was a balance in what God did. A balance to live life. Suggesting work is important. Good work is important. Satisfactory work is important. Rest is important. Schedule is important. Yet I did not see these things before. Only recently I am able to grasp these minute logical teachings of The Bible.
