Life is not destroyed, only changed, by death.
The future is only an illusion inferred from our present state. What is important is not the length of life, but the depth of life. What is most important is not to make life longer, but to take your soul out of time, as every sublime act does. Only then does your life become fulfilled. And do not ask yourself questions about time. Jesus did not explain a thing about the eternity of life, but his influence brought people to the eternal.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson
Faith in the eternity is given to us not in meditation, but in life.
It is not reasoning which will convince you of the necessity of life after death, but example: when you walk very close to a person, hand in hand, and this person disappears into an abyss, over there, stop in front of the abyss and try to look within it.
The level of fear you feel about death is the level of your understanding of life.
The less you fear death, the more you possess freedom, tranquility, and an understanding of the greatness of your spirit and the joy of life.
The understanding of eternity is part of the nature of the human soul.
