Don’t forget that if you like one of these napkin drawings, you can have it put on a coffee mug by just going to my website and typing in the title of this (or any) blog entry as the mug you want.
That desire for immortality, to live forever, is understandable. But the truth is you will not. You will die, as will everyone else. And if there is an afterlife, it certainly will not have much in common with life on earth. In truth, these are things we can’t know for certain one way or another.
But we do have evidence for one thing about the afterlife. The love you gave away during your life lives on. Now, it is true that it might not have your signature on it when the time comes for someone to ask ‘where’d you learn to love like that’ to your descendants. You may not get the credit you deserve. But if you can get over that little ego bruise, you can move forward in life knowing that you will live on no matter what happens to you as long as you pursue loving and accept love.
