Is it necessary? I mean, why is it that some of us believe we may get another chance at life? Is it because this one isn’t so satisfying that we hope another one would be better? What keeps us from living this one better? Should the answer to that question eliminate the need for another chance to live life again when applied? . . . Or are we possibly an experiment by The Higher Power Who’s checking how we respond to different scenarios of “reality” and thus recycles us at will without our knowledge?
Perhaps we’ll never know. One thing is for sure though, we are here now. What are we doing and are we making good use of our “gifts”? What are our aspirations and how are we cultivating their “soil” to encourage their bearing “fruit”?
It could very well be that we only live once. If that’s the case, what should we be achieving before it’s over? Should we all be doing the same thing? We know that there are rules for maintaining a sane society. Could they be for maximizing the amount of time we have for living longer? Because without them, surely some of us would live selfishly to say the least . . . and lives would be cut short.
Seriously! If we knew that this is the only life we have to live, how need we go about it without interfering with the right of others around us to live decently too? Everyone living out their dreams without hurting anyone else. Is that really possible? Because I happen to think that someone or others by default will no doubt think only of him/herself or themselves and mess up the symbiosis. The nature of mankind unfortunately has an evil side to it. Not everyone can overcome and conquer it. It exists in varying amounts with some folk possessing more and others less. But is that because of a certain refinement attained by “rectification of character” via second, third or more “chances” at life? Some of us achieving higher levels of “being” through graded, life cycle refinements?
It’s too much for a limited mind to comprehend. Whatever the truth is, I believe we have to live as if this is our only chance to appreciate the beauty that life has to offer. First, we have to see it as beauty full, then we have to be imbued by it and live out the healthy expressions of our appreciation. To use whatever talents we are given to elevate existence to even higher levels of conscious appreciation in order that The Universe open up more channels to joy for us. Its stores are endless and the goods are abundant in stock. Then, it wouldn’t matter if this was the last time we are . . . Our lives would be great nonetheless! . . . With a chance to do it over again hopefully . . . Unless the rewards of the after-life are even better for those who conquer their evil inclination. Then it would really pay off to make this one count.
