Conception of the afterlife the Jews do not have one. They believe that your purpose is to serve God while you are living your life; and then worry about death after death comes. Christians believe in heaven. The Buddhists believe in reincarnation. The Atheist believe in nothing. Just decaying and rotting and returning to the Earth. Agnostics just don’t know. Many would put me in that category but I am not. I believe in a higher power which most of us choose to call God. As to everything else I’m not quite sure but I contemplated way too much. I don’t want there to be nothing after this life. I want to know that there is something else. That there was something else before me. I am like Fox Mulder. I want to believe. And I do believe. I just take what I want from what you call religions and I leave the rest. choose to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. don’t believe in certain aspects of it. History tells us, that Jesus was an amazing man who taught and spread love. That is what I believe in. So am I a Christian? I feel my higher power and nature are sort of the same thing so am I of the wiccan faith? My mother has Judaism in her bloodline so therefore am I a Jew? I am always questioning. I am always wondering. Sometimes it makes me feel a little crazy. Sometimes I think that life is about questioning and wondering. I just don’t know. All I know is what I have faith in. Call me what you want but I choose to call me me. Why should I commit to one specific religion completely? As long as I do want to others as I’d have them do unto me aren’t I doing pretty good? I hope that being a good person in this life will lead to another form of something. I want there to be an afterlife. I know there is something. I just don’t know what it is. I know all of us will find out when we are Six Feet Under. But patience has never been a virtue of mine. I hate waiting. But I never want this life to end either. It is such an ironic oxymoron isn’t it? We will all find out together eventually. But I’ve left my mark in print. I’m leaving it right now. I hope you all leave your mark too. And I hope it is filled with love and kindness to your fellow man. I guess I will see you in the next way. Whatever it may be.
