We could discuss these for ages and never reach a conclusion! Henry Wadsworth Longfellow stands as one of America’s greatest poets… https://www.biblestudytools.com/bible-study/topical-studies/finding-praise-through-pain-in-i-heard-the-bells-on-christmas-day.html
Why do I share? He lost a wife to injury, married a second wife…awesome, until… Facing a period of anguish, he wrote.
Rather than talk this out; he wrote from his heart. When I have read the at times amazing creations on this site and others, the power of words is evident!
I wish to encourage all to strip off the tendrils of ‘sanity’ and write from the heart. It is The chance to create and stand as a unique voice from the past is a potential. We have the opportunity to know what the story is behind the class of literature that was shared. Share!
I thought of my somewhere ‘feeble‘ attempt to create a monologue. Key to this fact is The testimony I have been allowed. To God be The glory, Amen.
Very simply I was in a fatal Motor Vehicle Accident. I was given a second chance at life for which I have nothing but gratitude, as those who have written before us. I simply try and share my experience.
I ask many time “We live, then what?” I had a brief chance to experience what truly lies beyond Time. I will simplify all. We have time, an article of LIVING! When dead there ceases to be time. Time! What defines it? Physicists define time as the progression of events from the past to the present into the future. Basically, if a system is unchanging, it is timeless. Time can be considered to be the fourth dimension of reality, used to describe events in three-dimensional space.
- The ‘world’ or the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them. “He refuses to face reality” Similar:The real world, real life, actuality, truth, physical existence, corporeality, substantiality, materiality. Opposite: fantasy.
- The state or quality of having existence or substance. “youth, when death has no reality”
This brings us to the brink of The Existence of the possibility (I will not yet call it fact.)
The “World” is visible, the is termed ‘Reality’. Beyond reality? Is it Actuality?
Everything we perceive, using every possible means, is only a perception. Perception of something that is not universally experienced and accepted may be said to be “beyond reality”. It may or may not exist, but it is not easily or universally perceived. The consistent and universal perceptions are called “reality”.
When protons, neutrons and electrons were not ‘seen’, they were still searched for! https://www.livescience.com/26697-are-ghosts-real.html
The concept of ghosts is explored in the physical. In the physical can we prove the ‘existence’ of a non physical entity? There are people who live at a higher plane than most and experience more than the average person.
We could dwell on the outskirts of this concept:
Is that truly focusing on the beyond fact? A profound question! But, that brings us directly to the question os “What is truly out there?” Yes! We have defined the seen, how about the unseen?
Do you believe in The beginning of life? Why I ask befuddled me! You are here! You have ancestors who had ancestors…etc. But where did you come from?
The East African fossilsFrom the fossil beds of Olduvai and Lake Turkana they amassed specimens of the early hominins: the australopithecines and Homo species, and even Homo erectus. These finds cemented Africa as the cradle of humankind.
So, IF we decide to shed a thought on the story of Man told on a religious vein… His-story takes us back to the supposed garden of Eden – The beautiful garden containing the tree of life, where God intended Adam and Eve to live in peaceful and contented innocence, effortlessly reaping the fruits of the Earth. The garden also contained the tree of knowledge of good and evil, from which Adam and Eve were forbidden to eat. But The location is what we aim to locate its precise bearings.
The Garden of Eden is considered to be mythological by most scholars. Among those that consider it to have been real, there have been various suggestions for its location: at the head of the Persian Gulf, in southern Mesopotamia (nowIraq) where the Tigris and Euphrates rivers run into the sea; and in Armenia.
This becomes a His-Stoy bend on reality. I give credit to all that find this ‘hard’ to believe. The His-Storical waters: The description of the garden in Genesis 2:10-14 states that the water from Eden watered four important areas: Pishon, which flows into the land of Havilah; Gihon, which flows into the land of Cush; Tigris, which flows into the eastern side of Assyria; and the fourth is Euphrates.
The key here is the evidence above at the oldest human remains discovered in Africa.
