THE WISDOM OF TAO


He who knows other men is discerning; he who knows himself is intelligent. He who overcomes others is strong; he who overcomes himself is mighty.

If there are 6.5 billion people on the earth and with a generous life expectancy of 80 years that means there are 81,250,000 people each year, or 222,602.7 people a day, who die.

So 222 thousand new people every day find out the answer to the questions that theologians, scientist, philosophers and everybody else, since ancient man could reason, including the primitive tribesmen found around the world, have sought the answers to:

Is there life after death? Is the soul immortal?

And if so, what is it like? What can we see? What can we remember? Who can we see? Can we communicate with others? Can we see those left alive on the earth?

Oh boy! Wouldn’t all that new information, if the answer to the first two questions is yes, just cause a massive overload?

Since I am going to say the answer to the 1st 2 questions is yes then every day 222 thousand people go through a mind blowing, (dare I say it: life altering) transformation.

I can hardly wait.


There are some odd ways to honor the dearly departed



Ashley Brilliant - If I can survive death, I can probably survive anything.

Or perhaps more seriously:

Confucius - While you do not know life, how can you know about death?

new favorite Ash Brilliant quote:
I want either less corruption, or more chance to participate in it.
