Let me take you to a very natural imagination. Imagine a newly grown bud, watch it as it grows at frequent intervals, it ends up into a flower, Soon you will realize that flower is growing happily and merrily and when it attains its full blossom and beauty, it also starts losing its shine and glamour and finally dries and falls on the ground. The next thing which comes out is a fruit has taken the place of flower and carries on its journey to grow and ripe. The journey goes on and fruit comes to an end in a form of a seed and again that seed gives birth to the same flower. Now suddenly a question strikes to the mind. “Is this the death of flower?” or “Is this a birth of a new fruit?” Going a little further, “Is it the death of fruit?” Or “Is it the beginning of a new bud?”.
Summer dies into the summer, summer ends into monsoon and monsoon dies into winter just to born again as spring. That’s why they say, “After every winter, there comes a beautiful spring..”
Life would lose its meaning and importance without its two endpoints, birth and death. Death is not the end of life. There are two believes exist regarding this. According to one belief, It is only the beginning of ultimate reality. Death is simply the door through which we enter the real, true eternal life. Words will be inadequate to describe this eternal bliss to come. According to the other belief, Death is the end of one life. When one body dies, that soul will reborn in some physical form again.
To look at it in a lighter vein, death is a phase, a transition period, or a period of reshuffles and transfers in a big corporate Universe where “God” is a CEO who gives assignments to executives – “souls.” At the end of assignments or term, those executives are transferred: “death.” Depending on their work they are either promoted (Heaven), demoted (Hell), or merely transferred (Reincarnation) to another assignment. Those “souls” who get the pink slip are what we call “ghosts.” 🙂
A poet has rightly described life as one long dream from which a man never wakes up. Let’s see life as an energy form that is continuously flowing, with birth and death mere catalysts changing the course of the flow. And according to law of conservation that energy can’t be destroyed . It can only be transferred from one form to another form. That form can be an eternal form or a physical form. According to belief of mythology, your karmic deeds (karma) decide which form you are getting transferred.
Death is a fear for many of us. But the day we realize the beauty of life, there remains no fear to death. Life is a fun filled vacation. It’s a “Once-Only” gift. You never know when are you getting reborn as human again. So, Live it to the fullest like the very famous writer and poet Zaved Akhtar has very well said in latest Bollywood movie ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara’…
Dilon mein tum apni betaabiyan lekar chal rahe ho, toh zinda ho tum..Nazar mein khwaabon ki bijliyan lekar chal rahe ho, toh zinda ho tum..Hawa ke jhokon ke jaise aazad rehna seekho,Tum ek dariya ke jaise lehron mein behna seekho,Har ek lamhe se tum milo khole apni baahein ,Har ek pal ek naya samaa dekhe yeh nigaahein ,Jo apni aankhon mein hayraniyan lekar chal rahe ho, toh zinda ho tum.. Dilon mein tum apni betaabiyan lekar chal rahe ho, toh zinda ho tum..
So the Life is to live to the fullest and not to fear from the known ultimate end – death. Because You never know – Kal Ho Na Ho… 🙂
So, ‘Live Your Moment’ and make it something worth smile. Watch your deeds and win your fears. And The Life Goes On…. 🙂
