Birth, Life, Death, Rebirth ... The Circle of Life

Life has it's way.
There are good days and bad days; days marked for celebrating and days for mourning.
Most days are pretty ordinary; some are extraordinary.

Some lives end quickly, others linger for more than a century.

Death, a very real part of life, is never far away.
We see it in people we know.
We read about it in people we don't know.

We have learned much through science and have managed to extend life for some.
But all of us come to the same eventual end.
This life -- the one housed in our human bodies -- always comes to an end.

It is not my plan to have a depressing, morbid post today.
It is my hope that you will take a few moments to consider what might be at the end of this journey.

Is there life beyond death?
Is there a judgment for the current life?
Do we recycle through again with an opportunity to do better?
Or does this life's judgment determine our future in another world? In heaven? In hell?

I think that with the certainty of death, it is worth the time and effort to examine what might be next and how we might prepare for it.

I really believe that there is more than the big dirt nap at the end.
How about you?
Is there more to life than death?
And if so -- What?
