    How can someone you love be here one day and die and be gone forever.

    How can a living breathing person that has friends and family who can think and talk and feel be gone when dying?  That person can't just be here one day and create memories and then the next day be gone forever.  It doesn't make sense?

    Essentially most of us are "ticking time bombs".
    We don't know how much time we have before moving on. Only those who have been ill and have had a doctor give them an idea of how long they have left are privy. This is one of the reasons why so many people subscribe to the belief of never letting a day go by without telling those who are close to them that they love them.
    You can't take (tomorrow) for granted.

      I agree but I can't stop asking the same questions over and over again. Why?

      DCC the answer to your question, Why, is simple.  It was time for your loved one to leave this world of suffering and move on to a higher state of being in love, peace, and joy!

    Well that's why people create the religion. Because we cannot think that one day we will die and be gone forever. Personally I don't think our soul would die. I'm Christian, because I believe in every word that Jesus Christ said. But beiing Christian was not a choice to me. It happen. I trully believe that when we born, we do not die (soul). Only our physical die, not me. But this is only in what I believe. Many people believe in diferent things.

    This is just the cycle of life my friend. As soon as we are born we start dying literally. But, if we know where we are going after this shell of a body stops breathing; we KNOW that we will spend eternity with all we have lost along the way and with God and our savior Jesus Christ. This is a comfort we all can have if only we accept Christ as our savior. What a small price to pay to live in paradise for eternity.

      So if your Grandfather for example was a son-of-a-gun and committed sin upon sin, but you loved him anyway and want to be reunited with him you need to take a fast train to hell for a swift reunion?

      My Grandfather was the finest Christian man I have ever known. He and many are awaiting on me in Heaven. What a blessing to KNOW this.

    It is so sad, an unbearable pain and a wound that can be healed only with the passage of time but the wound leaves scars.

    This is what the truth and fact of the human life is. Perhaps the words of wise and learned men or study of scriptures like Bhagwad Gita can help bear the pain and understand the mysteries of the Life and Death.

    DCC I am so sorry for your loss and I pray that you can very soon get to a place of healing and knowing that the physical body of your loved one is no longer with you, that much is true.  As a Christian I don't know if I believe in heaven versus hell.  What I believe is that we shift from one form of energy carried in this earthly body, to another form of energy.  Whether or not we enter into a new body I don't know.  But I do believe that not only are the people we love still with us, but in a different form of energy, but we will be reunited.  I think here on earth in these decaying bodies we are here to learn how to love and become love and then we move on to something/somewhere else.  What happens to those who never become love, do they go to hell? I can not say but I pray that perhaps they are reincarnated again and again until the get it. I just don't see my loving Father--God sending any of HIS children no matter how disobedient they are to his word, to a fiery pit to agonize for all eternity.
