Does your view of death and what comes after influence how y

If there's no afterlife, how should we live?

How do you live?

Do you think about it?

What we do at every moment in time matters because there is a perfect being who loves us at every moment in time from beyond and within. Before we get that, it’s like we’re a caterpillar inside of a cocoon, or a chick in an egg. Or wind.

    The prospect of death weighs naught upon the purpose of life.
              You have been observed.
    Though often tempted to encourage a dog to distinguish color I refuse to argue with him about it
    It's just the same Satanism as always -
    • separate the bottom from the top,
    • the left from the right,
    • the light from the dark, and
    • blame each for the sins of the other
    • - until they beg you to take charge.
    • -- but "you" have been observed --
