Do I care what happens after death?  Yes and no

Do I care what happens after death? No.

Would I care under certain conditions?  Yes.

For example, if I had total control over my death, like the timing and how to die, don’t you think that I would certainly care what would be my status after death?

For example, if you feel healthy and very happy, would you take out your life, even if you have total control over your life?  Most probably NO.

If you feel depressed and know the alternatives that after death offer in better opportunities then, wouldn’t you opt for death?

Isn’t the awareness and feeling of lack of valid opportunities that drive us to despair?

What I mean by opportunities includes the knowledge that we will satisfy our hunger for food, joy, and friendship.

If you had total control over your death, and are crippled and feeling totally useless then, would you care to know “what will happens to me after death?”  Yes, you would care very much.

If you know that you have a few alternatives after death: Getting reincarnated as another human being, an animal, a vegetable, or a non-physical entity, would you gamble and risk obtaining an alternative that is against your want?

Wouldn’t you wish to know exactly which gender, race, hemisphere, climatic conditions, political structure, kinds of animals, insects…?

I am asking you, especially people with particular cultures who prefer Hara Kiri (committing suicide) for baffled dignity such as the ancient Japanese tradition, or being a martyr for religious reasons, what pressure these people to take control of their lives?

There are factors of youth and ignorance in the equation.

But what of very educated and experienced people, still healthy and provided for, why would they commit suicide?

I cannot fathom how any healthy and sane individual would commit suicide if he had the liberty of venturing out to other countries, societies, traditions, opportunities…

There is no way to know for sure what there is after death, and whatever is your “belief system” it is certainly very rickety, cloudy, fishy, unsatisfying to an experienced individual to decide upon his  life.

I was not asked my opinion when I was born; I can understand that phase of my life:  I had not much brain to think.

I am not asked my opinion on the timing and wishes of how I should die.

I am furious:  I want fair representation.

And you have a large bunch of nut cases telling me that I should live my life in miseries, suffering, and pains and be thankful for this grace of letting go of my anger and go with the flow.

It is nice to have a positive and cheerful outlook for the after life:  What else can we do?

There is this life to live, enjoy, and be happy:  How could this happens if our outlook is not positive, not vigorous, and not happy?

Truths and facts will not solve how “we feel should be the after life”.

For example of facts, are we a handful of ash, dirt, dust…?  Eaten by worms, ants, crows, fishes, and disgusting crawling little creatures…?

Who can claim that the remains of his ancestors have not been displaced, trampled upon, pissed on…?

The human spirit has proven to go beyond facts and humiliating daily realization of his limitations and dependence on external forces:  the spirit keeps us actives and preserves our high hopes for a better future.

The “after life” must be great if we don’t act stupid; shouldn’t it be?
