Living forever

When I was a kid it seemed impossible anybody wouldn’t want to live. I heard older people say, “Who wants to live forever?” I still do.

As I came along, the explanations got more expansive. I read stories of people cursed with eternal youth, while their loved ones died leaving them stricken and alone. As I age myself, it’s easier to see how people get distracted by experience, and begin to believe life is just the objects and emotions of today’s awareness. I know that there is ‘suffering unto death.’

My heart is just astonished by the message that seemingly can’t get out: life’s more than that!
