Having 6 members of my family pass away since May 2017, naturally makes me think of death. I’m trying to understand is the mystery of death. I’m wondering what my parents feel on the other side. Or even if there is another side.
The Mystery Of Death
Recently, I watched an interview by Megyn Kelly (TODAY) of Cherie Aimee, who underwent a life-changing event during cardiac arrest when she died for 90 minutes — and miraculously came back to life. Cherie talks about experiencing peace and connecting with her loved ones who had passed. She also experienced a ‘life review’ – a kind of spiritual awakening. Her experience left her unafraid of death.
There are many near-death stories that I’ve read, including of people who’ve had the scariest of feelings.
My faith tells me that when someone dies they go back to God. However, I believe that we are never really away from God to ‘go back to Him’. Perhaps, the way we experience God changes. I believe in a God of Love and Compassion and I’m hoping that after passing that we just get to experience Him more fully.
We all walk in mysteries. We are surrounded by an atmosphere about which we still know nothing at all. – Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Am I afraid of death? Some year ago, if I was to tell you that it scares me, I wouldn’t be lying. Now, I’m not really scared anymore. Just curious.
I think in part, my lack of fear stems from the fact, that more and more of my family is passing and I’m hoping we’ll be reunited together in that great unknown.
Whatever, maybe our beliefs or the experiences of others, death continues to be a mystery – and there seems to be only one way to solve it!!
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the mystery of death.
