Life is short we all say.
If life is short and we disappear into nothingness then we don’t have to fear the consequences of our negative karma –because life is short and we disappear into nothingness! Really is it like this? Do we say this as an excuse to be lazy and careless with our life? Do we say this to get out of living a life with morals and integrity? Do we say this to ignore that Karma exists?
When someone dies, we say may their soul rest in peace? When you cut your finger and the Soul is present in the body, then pain is felt. But when you cut the finger of a dead body no pain is felt, because the Soul has left. It is the Soul that feels pain, sorrow or happiness.
“We are not Human Beings having a Spiritual Experience. We are Spiritual Beings having a Human experience – Pierre Teilhard De Chardin “.
The Soul/Spirit is the driver of the vehicle of the body. When the Soul leaves the body then the body is dead. I believe we are all Souls, we are all points of light and we are immortal. I believe, we came down from the Soul world to play parts in this world drama. I believe we take birth into a new human body when the old body is inhabitable and when our Karmic accounts with our families of this birth are complete. It is the Soul that carries it specialities with it, from one birth to another. Why are some young children so clever? It is the soul that carries it talent from one birth to another.
The original qualities of the Soul are Love, Peace, Purity, Joy, and Wisdom. Anger, Ego, Greed, Lust and Attachment are not what we are. These negative qualities come into our life after several births. Because, we forget we are Immortal Souls, tiny points of light, and we think we are the body, we fear loss and then we become cruel to each other.
God does not interfere with our Free Will. Karma says as you sow so shall you reap. Karma is the Law. God the Divine is the benefactor and wants the best for his children, he respects our free will. The Law of Karma is a balanced law, if you sow good then you get good, but if you sow bad then you get bad. You may get bad in the same birth or it may come in another human birth.
To say life is too short in, in my humble opinion is not to appreciate, or respect yourself as a Soul or to value your original qualities. To say life is short is the sheer lack of understanding I am Spirit having a Human Experience. It is a laziness that is so profound that it says I am too lazy to be good, to live with value, to have morals, to be humble, to be kind. To say life is too short is not to appreciate the value that is life. In a way you take life for granted. It is to say I will live it up and do whatever even if it is bad for me and others, because life is short and Karma doesn’t exist. It is an excuse not to try to be your best self. It is a waste of a life that actually has a lot of opportunities available to it.
You see, we cannot see Gravity – but we know it exist. We can’t see the air, but we can feel the wind. So, just because we cannot see Karma does not mean that it doesnt exist. May be BECAUSE we use the excuse of life is too short we HAVE become blind to Karma.
I always think if you think life is short, then think of that homeless person in Africa or some country with extreme poverty/ or war torn country where there is no hope, the child who wants to make a life, who studies sitting on the floor, who using the street lighting to study at night who wants to make a life, who has only one pair of clothes, may be no shoes, may be one meal a day. The child makes effort to make a life, and there are you with all the opportunities in life -saying life is too short.
“Most people die at 25 and aren’t buried until they’re 75” – Benjamin Franklin
To say life is too short is an excuse not to be a good Soul having a fantastic Human Experience. To say life is too short is to throw morality & integrity out the window for some. To others to say life is too short is to live it and fill it with every experience possible. But, very few of us spend enough time trying to be true to our-self the Soul.
Why do most people want Peace of Mind so much? Because, it is our true identity! But hey life is too short to find time to Meditate, to find time to fill the Soul with peace, to do something that is charitable, selfless, humble or just plain good. Life is too short, so let’s get drunk, buy more stuff we don’t need,be lazy and selfish, eat the wrong food, poison our self and the earth and waste time on social media. Hey life is short so it is okay to waste it – isn’t it?
Or should we Live life in such a way that you grow into the most beautiful Spirit/Soul. That your inner light shines so bright. That our goodness and character illuminate our whole body, that our peaceful aura is all round and the person next to us feels our Divinity. That we become so close to our original qualities that each day is beautiful in this birth and the next. That fitting in with all the social norms of this world are not as important as being the best that you can be filled with peace and purity, that we grace this world with our presence, NOT just blend into the background like everyone else. As Gandhi said don’t follow the Crowd if the Crowd is going in the wrong direction.
