For this challenge we are asked to examine one of our core beliefs.
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.
