Sunday Writing Prompt # 243: Core Beliefs

For this challenge we are asked to examine one of our core beliefs.
https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/19271780/posts/1777165245

I have a core belief that cannot be proven, yet is something I am comfortable with.
It is not religious or scientific and is a subject touched upon in films and debates, neither of which I have been involved in.

I truly believe that when we depart this life, it is not The End.

I cannot see how energy dies, and as life is an energy force, however tired, it has to go somewhere. Even a flat battery still has a little spark left.
Some people may refer to it as a Soul, others a Presence, and logic dictates that it seems pretty pointless to live a life, however long, when at the end, there is….. well, nothing.

I have this theory that we are put on this earth to learn by, and possibly correct, our mistakes in a former life, so yes, I believe in reincarnation, often referred to as deja vu.
I have no children, so apart from friends and any relations that outlive me, when my time comes, there will be no mark of my living, hopefully just a fond memory of my passing.
Perhaps I had too many children in a past life who all grew up to be murderers, thieves or even politicians.

I believe that for each of us there is a Soul Mate, whether we meet in this life or the next.
Perhaps we are forever searching for that one person to make us whole, and when we do, we are ready to go onto the next stage……… whatever that is, I have no idea.
I believe that no-one dies as long as they are remembered in the hearts and minds of the living. The physical body may no longer be at our side, but their persona is in our memory.
I am comfortable in the belief that I shall meet my parents again, and everyone else I cared about who are just on a different astral plane to me.

This is normally when people start to switch off, politely move away or smile gently as they shake their heads.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I also believe in reincarnation and that learning/growth/evolution is a big part of why we are here

    Ha…like your humour.

    I believe in God. A power of mercy compassion and love outside of our human understanding .I believe that every individual is cherished and of value regardless of their earthly connections.or lack of.Because I am a Christian I believe those who are discarded by humanity and who are not remembered or valued by anyone(and there are a lot of them) will be the most prized by a merciful God
    ” What you do unto the least of my brethren, you do unto me”
    “You will reap what you sow”

    I agree with you Di, I think the energy that is each of us has to go somewhere. The night my mother died I was living 9 hours away. The shock of her sudden death, she was 57, has always stayed with me. But that night as I settled to try and sleep my mother came to me and said goodbye. As clear as bell it was. Whatever it is that is there, it must be ok as no one I know has come back to complain.

    • I am so glad your Mum came to you Michael. As you know I was over 7 hours away when my Mum passed away last month. I saw her in December and thought it might be the last time, but I was lucky to be able to speak to her a few times after that. It was important to me to say my goodbye the morning of the funeral, and I was glad the funeral home could accommodate me. I know she is in a better place, pain free and reunited with my Dad.
