Deathly Thoughts

Updated on May 17, 2015

As I age and watch others get older and some die I find my mind wandering into death's realms. Am I scared of death? I believe I would be lying if I said no. I do also believe we all have days we wish we were dead, but really now, do we really?

I have experienced some close people I love dying in the last few years; some of them very young to be going on.

My faith in God and Jesus Christ tells me there is a resurrection and life after death, but again I would be lying if I said I haven't questioned that at times. I have asked God to give me signs and that He has done. I know my loved ones are alive and worshiping God, but there are still those people I meet every once in a while that throw a doubt statement out in the air.

The purpose of this hub is to explain my theories and thoughts. I pray it will help someone else dealing with a death of a loved one or even someone who may be on their deathbed.

The Funeral

I have faced some major death issues the last few years. Just this past few days, I had to "buck up" and face another. My sweet love and wife, Lastheart has a brother-in-law. Edgar is a great guy and living here in Puerto Rico I have had difficulty speaking with many because I don't know Spanish. Edgar is good with English and we are a lot alike. I enjoy having conversations with him.

Edgar's Mom was sent home from the hospital and the family was told she didn't have long. Maggie and I decided to pay a visit. I felt many emotions as we walked into Edgar's Mother's room. This frail woman was in her bed and I felt a tinge run up my spine as she opened her eyes and looked at me. I had met this woman just once before and this time her eyes looked deep into my soul. Maggie hugged and kissed her and then excused herself to the bathroom. I laid my hand on the edge of the bed and I felt her hand grab mine. I looked into the woman's face and saw a painful smile. I felt her spirit ask me to pray and that is what I did.

Magdalena Rodriguez Estremera did not know English, but she trusted my prayer; I know because I could tell it in her eyes and smile as I finished. We left her to rest not long after, but before we did she asked Maggie and I to visit the following day. We wasn't able to because Magdalena died just a few hours after we left.

Lastheart was the first to know, now all of you. We went to visitation yesterday and I know, yes I know that the woman in that casket opened her eyes and smiled one more time to me. Her body was buried today but I believe she is still alive.

Froggy Science

There are many people that have difficulty with death and how God works. I am going to do my best to give a scientific approach.

The human body is made up of 3 basic parts:

  1. Structure: The cells and the organs, bones, muscle, skin layers, blood vessels, nerves and other physical structures that they form.
  2. Liquid: The intra and inter-cellular liquids that play important roles in the generation of electrical energy.
  3. Electrical charge: The charge responsible for activating the body and its structures. It is called the "life-force", life energy, spirit or electromagnetism.

The last part is my main focus: energy. No one really understands much about this energy; that includes scientists and doctors but they all do know that without energy, this human body and mind would not work. There are links supporting this at the right.

All right, now we know the body is made up of energy. There is one more scientific fact: energy NEVER dies. It may change forms, but it never dies. So now where does that bring us?

Back To God

Ok energy never dies and we are full of energy. It could however, change forms.

What will your energy be when your body dies? Will it be burning up or comfortable? You do have that choice.

God gives us a freewill to choose where our energy will be. He put each of us here and we have missions. Some of us will complete our missions. Some will do them partially and some not at all.

I have written many hubs on how to have God in your life personally. Read through them and pick up a Bible and read it. It's your choice and I have to tell you, life is short. Shorter than you probably think.You may think you have lots of time, but you really don't.

For those who want to argue, no sense doing it here. You won't change my mind and you will probably look foolish trying. I don't believe in atheism because there is no such thing. Everyone has some kind of god. Mine is the Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

I hope and pray these deathly thoughts help someone. May you know there is life after because God loves us. He loves us this much:

If You need some daily scripture, I have a blog just for that with videos and a daily message. Just follow the link below.

May God bless and keep you and may I meet your energy in Heaven!

      I would let the dead die, death comes and calls on us all. It does no good to believe the dead are still "alive" in spirit. That is comforting for you but think about them. Don't hold them here, set them free and relish memories and stories. From star dust and energy all was created and to dust and energy we must return. Death is not an end, so let the dead move on.

      Religion is giving you a mental problem ... it's clear to see how you are stuck in a dead-end road of irrational illusions ... but sure, you are free to stay in that dead-end read ... till hell freezes over, if that's what you think is good for you and it's the best you can do ... but is it real?

      You'd be an ok guy. If you just take a good look at yourself, you may start to notice how badly served you are, taking all this religious BS on faith, not knowing how far removed all of this is from a rational existence with a healthy mind free of any god delusion - living under a god spell is no fun!

      Take no offence - I wish you well my friend ...

      Yes, I believe she is alive as well. "Whosoever lives and believes in me will never die."

      Interesting breakdown of the body's mechanics. I learned something. And, most important(ly?)...lived to tell about it.

      I know that I shall meet you some day in Glory! Praise God (but if I run into my dad first, God rest him, I MAY have a shorter 'do'....
