Worm food or everlasting life?

"Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary."
- Sir Cecil Beaton

The play-it-safers fear life and the future it holds for them. They embrace what they know, avoiding change, without understanding that maintaining the status quo in life effectively means falling behind, though they never admit it.

These people waste the spirit they were born with, the one that some call a soul, others the essence of life, still others that part of them that is everlasting.

When you do nothing to advance your life into the unknown future, you do nothing worth continuing past your death. In other words, you leave nothing worth continuing after you die.

That's harsh, isn't it? Get over it. Life is harsh. It's not fair.

We either create something new, we build, while we are on Earth, or we simply become worm food like any other dead animal.

Is there life after death? Yes, for the worms and bacteria that consume our bodies.

But is there more than that, real everlasting life? Think about it. Why would God want to continue the existence of someone who wasted their life on Earth because they were afraid of what might happen to them?

How long do you think you would keep worm food around?

If you want life after your body dies, do something. Dare to be something. Courageously forge your own future.

No one can do it for you. No one wants to do it for you. You're on your own with this.
