    Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

    Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there; I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow, I am the sun on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush I am the swift...

    What Hope for Dead Loved Ones? “If a man die, shall he live again?” asked the man Job long ago. (Job 14:14, King James Version) Perhaps you, too, have wondered about this. How would you feel if you knew that a reunion with your loved ones was possible right here...

    Always In the Back of My Mind.

    It's hard not to wonder what will happen when we take that last breath of life and jump into the depths of the unknown. It's hard not to think am i doing the right thing, will what i think and do judge how i spend my afterlife. I don't know. I'm an Atheist, but everyday I wonder...

    A Few Depressing Thoughts

    My Husband is 21 years older than I am, he will be 56 this year. Most of the time we don't notice the age gap. He is just my Husband and I am, as always just me. He tells me that I make him feel young. He forgets his age as do I, but then he will go to do something and his body...

    Selfish

    Loss of air. Loss of vision. Loss of life. Cold, limp, dark. Still, silent, disconnect. Hallow, empty, ghostly. Blackout .....Heart beating..... Pounding, thumping, surviving. Bright, blinding, white. Warmth, tingling, stinging. The warmth of my tear as it dances down to my...

    I always imagine me dying in weird way it's

    weird like I fantasy about it and romanticize about it. We see all the time in movies, when I listen to a well but electronic ambient sad song, I always think of fallen and landing on a spike.

    I'm not nervous about being dead.

    I'm more nervous about the process of dying. I've always hoped mine would be quick and painless but I know we can't all have that. Death is inevitable. I don't believe in heaven or hell or any religious things. I'm an agnostic atheist. I'm curious to know what death is like.

    Scary To Think About

    My husband's best man killed his wife

    and then killed himself. And the baffling thing is they were always so humble and stayed to themselves. So we have no idea of what happened!

    It's something I've always been afraid of.

    You can't escape it, everyone will experience death. Maybe that even makes it worse. You'll never know when and how, you only know it will happen. It's a difficult thing to accept that this occurrence will take place, with or without your permission. People always try to shut it...

    The whole concept of death intrigues

    and terrifies me. For years I have laid in bed unable to sleep, haunted by the lack of existence that awaits me. All that I have known, considered or even imagined will fade to black, to an eery nothingness. Everything and everyone that I have ever known, ever loved will cease...

    So I have this belief

    that life can exist without any physical form. I mean, our 3rd eye can take us to different dimensions that dont exist anywhere else but in our minds. In the dimensions you can have no body at all. So it makes me wonder, when we die is that just the death of our physical body...

    I wonder if we're going to come back

    as another person after we die, and if we do, will we remember who we used to be? But then again, if everyone came back as another person, there wouldn't be any angels in heaven. I guess I'll know when I get there. Which I hope is a long time from now.

    I find death a funny concept.

    ...I don't get it. I know it sounds strange, but death has always boggled my mind. The closer I get, the stranger the concept. I guess I cannot imagine life without me.

    Death

    Sorry if this is morbid but in many ways death is of course something we must deal with. In many ways for me it is the end of what we call life and maybe we never know what is out and beyond. As a kid wondered about insects first. They live and die, right? Where do they go once...

    I think I was a weird kid. I always loved going to cemeteries, partly because I love history, but also because I have always been fixated on the question, " Where are they now?" I found my faith in God early & have been comforted by that, but there is so much unknown. When I was...
