How old are you now?
20, 30, 40, 50, 60 or 70 years old? Did you recently had a birthday passed by?
Do you remember this day 10 years ago? Doesn’t it feel very recent? Doesn’t it feel like it just happened?
What about 20 years back? How do you feel about an incident that happened 20 years ago? Just think about it for a second. GO back to when your childhood and when you were in school. Feel the distance of time. Doesn’t it feel like it just happened?
See, how time goes by! You were a child just that day; you were in school not too long ago! Now here you are today! You may wish to go back and turn few things around so your life could have gone in a different direction. But no! You are what you are now – at your PRESENT TIME. You can’t change it. You have to deal with it now.
Let’s go forward in time. Mark a day on your calendar and plan an event. Mark it and watch that the day come by and leave. Mark it for a month, it will come by and leave. Mark a day 1 year from now, it will come by and leave. Mark it for 4 years (such as the World Cup). You might think it is distant, but it will definitely come and you will watch it pass by, just as it did before, right, if you have a obsession of sports. Then, Mark a day even after 10 years and you will watch it pass by – if you live until then. Then what?
A day will come and you will die. Just like any other day that you planned, this day will definitely come and THAT is the ONLY CERTAINTY of LIFE. DEATH. It will come. You have to face that day! That will be your PRESENT DAY for sure! That ‘present day’ will be the MOST IMPORTANT PRESENT TIME in your life. But you won’t be able to react on that day. This is the only day where you won’t be able to deal with it as it comes. While living, you deal with any present day as it comes, and you deal with any events that occur. But the “present day” of death won’t give you any chance to deal with. You have to just face it and accept it as it comes.
Can you feel it? Do you really realise that this day will come? That PRESENT DAY will come?
You see, when you plan for a travel, how much preparation do you make? Think about all the precautions you take before beginning your travel. You think of all the incidents you’ll have to face – from first aid for insect bites to travel insurance for any big mishap. You prepare for any foreseeing events as much you can, right?
Then what about the CERTAIN travel of DEATH? When you don’t even know for sure what is there, how can you remain so careless? Remember you give benefit of the doubt for many worldly things as a matter of good judgment. Why not then leave the arrogance behind for just a little while and give the “Day of Judgment”, ‘Hell Fire’ and ‘paradise’ a benefit of the doubt?
Why do people get funeral insurance for the time of death? To get a peace of mind, right? So then how come people don’t want to get peace of mind for the unseen events after death? Think of it logically. There’s no philosophy in the world which gives you CERTAIN knowledge about life after death, so then why don’t you THINK?
Do you think you’ll get another 10 years to think about that? Do you have really have CERTAIN knowledge about your moment and time of death? Are you sure you will live until old age? Are you sure you will not die tomorrow? Maybe you think you will live till you’re at least 80 years old. Perhaps this is because there aren’t any cyclones, tornados, tsunamis, deadly floods, earthquakes or fires where you live.
But even a child of 7 years suddenly dies in a country like Australia by the fallen trunk of a tree. A teenager goes missing on the shore of Australia. A road accident or plane crash happens every day. Do these people who die in such fatal incidents know they will die the next day? Why do you think it won’t happen to you? Do you have any certainty about that?
Isn’t your life is like a sand watch? Your Creator put the sand on the upper part already, only HE knows how much and sand is dropping since the day you born and the irony is You don’t know how much sand is left on the upper part. Isn’t that so scary? When is the last sand will drop? When is the death?
Question is what you know about that day? What information you have about that CERTAIN DAY? If you do not believe in a God, I assume you have other philosophy that you live by. What CERTAIN KNOWLEDGE you have about death from the philosophy you believe in? Does that philosophy give you any CERTAIN knowledge about death?
Then why not look at the scriptures people claim from God, what they have to say about after death?
But before going to the ‘scripture’ for looking for certain knowledge about death, question is why those books can give you certain knowledge about death. Answer is, IF we human are a creation of a creator and those books came from the same creator then it has to have the information related to our life and the end of it and anything thereafter. Because only the manufacture knows the life time of a product, the maintenance procedure of the product. Therefore, philosophies developed by human minds won’t certainly know the expiry of the human being let alone the life or anything after death. Only it is possible by the manufacturer of human being. Thus those books that came from that creator CERTAINLY knows about death and hereafter not by the books written by any human being.
So, read. Read the scripture your people claim came from the Creator of the stars. If it does not make sense to you then read other’s book. Do not think I only read this book because it is “ours” and that book is “there’s”. If the book really is from your Creator it is certainly YOUR book. Certainly the Creator sent that book for YOU.
So, read! What not you read? You read best books that human minds can produce, you read ordinary books sometimes, you read ordinary magazine’s sometimes, your read even advertisement sometimes and what not!
Why not read the book people claim came from the Creator of the sky!
I do not want you to be blind and believe whatever those books say. Most of you are the people of ‘thoughtfulness’ you can question and I believe in your ability to look for the evidences. What are the evidences of what those books say is the truth? But to get into question, you have to really give a chance to those books what they have to say to you! So, read the books your own people claim from God and then keep asking question. If your book does not satisfy you then check other’s book that other’s claim that came from God. Keep asking question and keep thinking.
Only TIPS I can give you is, IF there is a book from the CREATOR of this AMAZING and PERFECT UNIVERSE, that book must have the PERFECTNESS in it. IF there is a book from the CREATOR who holds the AMAZING UNIVERSE with such MIGHT and BALANCE he has, HIS book has to have that AMAZING BALANCE in it. And your CREATOR already gave you that book; you just have to use your brain to find that book!
