Sometimes I wonder what happens when I die. I know my physical body will decompose and become integrated in the earth. But what would become of my thoughts. Would I still be able to think, or would my thoughts completely vanish? It is a disturbing thought that one might become nonexistent.
A couple of days I was looking at the family album with my 4-year-old grandson. I was showing him pictures of his mom when she was about his age. He appeared to understand that his mom was once a child: but he asked a question that totally surprised me. He asked, “ Where was I”.
Most religions have an answer to where we go after we die; but they have no answer to this simple question of “Where was I”. Can death and birth have the same origin?
