The Nature of Our Immortal Lives

The nature of our immortal lives is in the consequences of our words and deeds that go on apportioning themselves throughout all time. Our lives are not our own; from womb to tomb, we’re bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness we birth our future.

Who Am I?

A child of God. A child of the Universe. A sum of all events the past 13.8 billion years that have led up to creating who I am now. All of my paradigms, etc.

I am not static. Rather I am ever changing and evolving. A (changing) microcosm of a larger system.

I existed before I was born as an unfathomable number of interconnections and interdependent elements, actions and consequences. Moment by moment, I continue to exist as such today. I will continue to exist as such after I have died.

The truth is, there is no birth or death of I; these are but transitions and illusions. As long as time has existed, I have always existed and will continue to exist.

My life extends well beyond the boundaries of space and time that my ego perceives. This is self-evident.

Forces of love, kindness, radical acceptance and radical grace are immortal and are part of who I am.

So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
