What Message Will Your Life Send Across The Great Divide?

Updated on August 18, 2016

Living a Life

What message will our lives send across the divide between now and then?

How will the generations to come know us? Will they know us?

They will only know, they can only know our spirit and the residue of our living.

Our physical bodies will be gone but what we know and who we really are – our soul, our spirit can become eternal if we say yes to this question:

"Am I willing to live a life in the here and now, freely giving myself as designed by my creator with no regard for personal gain?" - Author Unknown

Of course all questions ultimately lead to at least one more question, but answering this one question will lead you to know your heart. You will discover what you need and what you don't need. You'll uncover what you want and what you don't want. You'll discover what you are willing to pay for what you want, and you will encounter a different perspective about time in relation to all of the above. From there you can make a decision about how you want to live each moment of the rest of your life.

I will admit that the answer to this question may not come easily or without a price. I can assure you that if you begin to ask it and continue to ask it until an answer arrives, a most remarkable revelation will occur. You will discover 2 aspects of yourself: 1) Who you are not and 2) Who you are!

Check that out; Knowledge and freedom in just one question. I can't wait to see what a contribution you'll make to those who will come after you!!!

      "If you lay down your life, you will find it;" a somewhat mysterious phrase, but what a life you will have if you are willing to pay the price to follow that path. Thank you for a great hub- I'm going to post your quote on my fridge.

      Hi Suzette & Thank You!

      It really is that simple, as you have said. All we have to do is ask and choose! It's not hard to share the knowledge and emotion because you already knew and felt it. So would all others who cared to discover that we're all connected.

      Bless you and keep writing!!!

      It really is that simple. Just answer the question you pose and we all get to the core of who we are and what is really important in our lives. This is an excellent article and one I would recommend to anyone to read. Thanks for sharing your special knowledge and your heart-felt emotions come across loud and clear. It is good to read something like this and makes me stop and take stock of my life so far and for the future. Thanks for sharing this with us at Hubpages!

      Oh phdast7, thank you, thank you. As someone who writes extensively about the holocaust, you should know about Viktor Frankl. Therefore this comment means even more!

      I am so grateful!

      Just as good and profound as the first time I read it. Excellent quotes and we so need to know who we are and who we are not and then get busy living out of that knowledge. :)

      Born2care - This is marvelous in its simplicity and its depth. Many of us get discouraged when we read a self-help or a religion-help article or book. This quote distills all the advice and directions down to something we can grasp and yet the implications for affecting positive change over a lifetime are limitless. Thank you. Sharing.
