Recently, I had a brief conversation about death, in the forum. We were talking about acceptance of death vs fear and/or denial around the subject. Some think they can beat death or at least postpone it for a very long time. In reality, we’re all a breath away.
I’ve been accepting of this fact since I was a child. This is no remark or judgement on people who feel otherwise. I’m just telling you where I’m coming from with this. Life has always been finite and death has always been real. I happened to integrate this when I was young.
Walking away from the conversation, I mulled the exchange. I was thinking about how our bodies are designed to heal themselves. It’s a popular topic these days and I definitely see it this way. It’s all quite miraculous but there’s another side to this; a shadow side.
Yes, we are designed to heal but we are also designed to break down. We do age.
I’m writhing this for people who are on a reality kick in this realm. You can get cut and witness your body create a scab and heal itself, but you can also watch your body age.
I feel I’m better off accepting these truths rather than trying to defend against them. Publishing this so others can can consider what I’m saying. You’re just not going to beat God’s design.
