Life Goes on

My mind has been pretty messed up lately--

This morning I was thinking about when we die, and the legacy we leave behind.  Are we truly forgotten?

When someone thinks about us after we're dead does that mean our soul and memory still lives on?  Does it even matter?

What if when we die it's really the end?  We just become nothing, the only things surviving us are our accomplishments and failures.

It's pretty daunting to think about the great UNKNOWN.  I wish I could say that religion makes me feel safer, but I would be lying if I said that.  I'm alive, and I'm scared because I DON'T know what will happen once I die.

Will I go to a 'heaven' or 'hell'?  Will I be reincarnated?  Will I just become a member of the growing number of Nothing in the world?  

This is what happens when I think too much.

  1. i can't say that i'm sure either... considering i haven't died yet... But i think it's better to be safe than sorry...

    So if I do get remembered, I wanna be remembered fondly (i know EVERYONE won't remember me that way, but i'm just worried about the people i care about)

    And if there is a heaven & hell, I want the better of the two

    And if I am forgotten, then I want to live this life as such, meaning that i gonna live for myself cuz no one's gonna remember anything else when I'm gone....

  2. dude!! our APL blog looks awesome!!!

  3. I think about that too much too. Makes me all depressed.

  4. i've been way too conscious for my own good lately, too. before i die, though; i'm gonna leave a lot behind for people to love and to love to hate!

  5. Yeah it is pretty depressing when you think about it. I just can't grasp the fact that we could become Nothing when we die.
