My wife continues the story of how I died and how I came to life. I’m still trying to adjust to this body, while she’s trying to overcome her guilt.
Season 4, Episode 13
The best way to cope with your inevitable demise is not to hide from it. Earthlings occupy their mind by binging on Netflix, working extra hours, taking endless selfies or getting lost in pop culture. We love distractions.
Hollywood feeds us with endless possibilities and like the hungry hungry Hippo we guzzle it down. In our mind there’s no room for the thought of death, there’s more sexy things to think about.
Our brain is a glorious mansion of many rooms. If we’re bored in one we can turn the key and enter another. Death is the room located somewhere in the basement with cobwebs over the locks and chains. We seldom visit it and do our best not to think of it.
To have a rich, meaningful and spiritual life we need to acknowledge death. What helps me is prayer, reading scriptures and writing stories.
