We Know Where We Come From, But Where Do We Go After Death?

Death 2Be happy you’ll die instead of being sad thinking of death.

Death is something many don’t like to talk about, because it’s an enemy that ruins home, takes away our joy and destroys a whole family, yet it’s inevitable. 

Many do ask if we die “where do we go?” It’s hard to give a straight-forward answer. Even though I have cheated death many times in my life, I haven’t experienced it before to know how it is when you’re dead.

I don’t think a dead man has any memory after death to record his experience. According to the Bible: “For the living know that they will die,  but the dead know nothing… their love, their hatred, and their envy have now perished” Ecclesiastes 9:5.

Many believe in reincarnation, others don’t, but the Bible promises that there is life after death—and that it lasts forever.

There is something we need to ask: Why many who have died can’t rest peacefully in their graves but often haunt people occupying the houses they were before they died? Does it mean that truly life goes on after death?

There are many verses in the Bible that speak about the resurrection. John 5: 28-29 reads, “Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.”

Despite all the Biblical quotations, many may still have different opinions and beliefs about death. Death will always remain a mystery and the greatest fears of life connected to the unknown.

We fear death because we are imperfect or our sinful nature. According to Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord,” yet death is something we should not fear.

Many seem happy when they think of death in their old age. They don’t have anything to worry about because of their good deeds, genuine love and help they offered to people on earth. We can follow them to sow good seeds on earth. That’s where the happiness comes from till death.

Once A Man, Twice A child: Making Wise Decisions Before Old Age

Wonderful world, beautiful people

Making Wise Decisions Before Old Age: life is beautiful even at old age

It’s great to be young since life is beautiful, wonderful and full of experiences. Many are born with silver spoon in their mouths, while others born on a bed of poverty. The latter has to run a mile for his daily bread. Surprisingly, there are stories of people who were born into great and wealthy families, whose lives ended with sad events and others born into poverty, but rose to be most industrious and respected people in the society.

While in school many dream of getting good jobs and probably the right partners to start a family. These are essential in life. Without planning one can’t make a good decision and future. When young many never think of old age, until it catches them by surprise. In fact, old age doesn’t mean suffering but at a ripe age we often find ourselves in various health problems, making life miserable sometimes. Many times at old age, there isn’t any more energy to feed on your own, thus; becoming a child once again, under the care of both good and bad people.

We do often hear people saying “Life is short, so let’s enjoy ourselves?” But we shouldn’t forget that what we do while young, determines our future.  According to psychologists and psychiatrists, the roots of our present day ailments can be traced to our homes. That means that we can plan a better life or abide by healthy rules to enjoy healthy lives, instead of misusing our bodies which speed up to ailments at old age.

After a wonderful life, we meet health problems, such as loss hearing, impair vision, urinary and prostate cancer and other old health problems.  Sometimes a doctor may even find a problem during a routine checkup and discover illness we weren’t aware of. One addicted to health hazard substance, can’t enjoy a perfect healthy life, like one free from drugs. Some health hazard addictions sometimes make one older and gaunt, even though the person may be in his or her thirties.

Old age 5

Imagine at 100 years old, both Grayce and Clarence Dwyer, born to Irish immigrants still live.  According to the article written by Susan Donaldson James on February 14, 2012, via Good Morning America, “Until very recently they have been fiercely independent and still were able to cook and shop even if it meant returning to the local food market more than once a day so that they could prepare their own meals,” said couple’s daughter.

At certain time, old people in excruciating pain prefer to die, while those who are even older and enjoying happy life wish they could live longer. Life it’s like a journey before every one, if it’s well driven, you will achieve success at the end of the journey and when carelessly driven, you will end up in unpleasant situations.

There are many books about living a healthy life. One of them is ‘Living Healthy Life – The most effective and cutting edge health secretes of all time, by Randi Garber. After working very hard, the soul and body need satisfaction, yet too much of everything is bad. People smoke all their lives until diagnosed with cancer. That can be prevented. Life is precious, worth more than silver and gold; let’s take good care of ourselves, to avoid much suffering during old age.
