Today I got into a good discussion about things like The Existence of God , Life After Death . I’m still trying to wrap my head around one of the questions which occurred to me regarding the Life After Death question:
“How do you know there isn’t life before birth? I am not entirely certain where consciousness originates from, but we have it – where does it come from?” (quoting myself here).
So, that’s what it all boils down to for me. I am actively working on becoming a fully conscious human being, and as I tend to question everything I also need to study and research and fully grok the subjects which catch my interest. So, currently I’m obsessed with better understanding consciousness, where it comes from, and where it goes when our physical bodies die (as well as where it came from when our physical bodies began to be). Part of me has a pretty firm and intuitive belief in reincarnation, but my inner philosopher is never satisfied with opinions which are based 100% in intuition.
I’m seeking some new information. I’m not so much trying to prove or disprove the presence of consciousness/spirit both before and after the death/birth cycle as I am attempting to more fully understand the subject. I adore learning, and some questions are well worth further investigation.
“I cannot live with myself any longer.” This was the thought that kept repeating itself in my mind. Then suddenly I became aware of what a peculiar thought it was. “Am I one or two?” If I cannot live with myself, there must be two of me: The ‘I’ and the ‘self’ that ‘I’ cannot live with.” “Maybe,” I thought, “only one of them is real.”
Reading the above quote was like a jolt of reality and awakening for me. So now, here I am aware, and awake and seeking to understand fully who ‘I’ am and where ‘I’ originate from. Isn’t it amazing that the Universe has gifted us with these amazing minds, so full of capacity and ability to question and seek out truth?
I do believe it might be time for me to look into sitting in on a philosophy class, and maybe even into attending some of our local philosophy club’s meetings.
And that once again brings me to this:
