Life and Death: The Only Two Facts of Life You can Count on

We're either engaged in living, or
we're engaged in dying.  Which is it for you? 

Recently I suffered the terrible loss of a close and dear friend: Cristeen Negulis Mangeris.
Cris and I went together from 5th grade through 7th. She was a happy-go-lucky girl who never quite grew old in her mind. Well, I will miss talking with her, beit on the phone, even a few days before her assumed COVID death (we'll talk about this another time).


As close as Cris and I were, I'm not as bummed out  as many may have thought I should be. Perhaps I hold my despair in better than most, or  better yet, maybe I see her death as a ticket home. I've come to understand that the only way to live is to die, and so Cristeen has found her life, wherever that may be. So I'm actually glad for her, that she was finally able to cash that ticket on one of many trains that promise to carry us back home--those of us who actually come here from elsewhere. Yes, I'm one of those people...

Those of us who come here from afar, we have work to do in the form of specific places,  people, and situations to care for. The Lord, in His most excellent Word, tells us that he knew us before he laid one plank of this world. With regards to the Lamb's Book of Life, He said that He placed our names in that Book before the beginning of this time. 

Cris worked in healthcare as an office manager with a large nursing facility. She worked there  for a very long t ime. Besides doing her regular duties as a manager, Cris' job was to encourage residents in the home by speaking to them  prior to death. She did her job well, in fact. She told them about God, about His Son, Jesus, the Christ. She cried over many of resident who died almost in her arms. 

I'm not afraid to die because starting at an early age, I began  having OBE's (also called Astral Projection), which  put me squarely on the other side of this life. Most of my close friends have no idea that I've had this ability for so long, but as a younger man, I was more concerned about public opinion. Now, the truth means more to me than adverse public sediment. 

What I'm trying to say is, there is life outside the body. I know, I've experienced it hundreds of times over my life.  If you personally don't believe it, that's your personal choice. But the choice you make will not alter the facts--the truth. 

In Conclusion


Here's my view on things, having my feet firmly planted on the ground: "You're either engaged in living, or you're engaged in dying." 

There is one book in particular, in addition to the Holy Christian Bible (download free copy), that I recommend you read if you hold any interest in this subject matter at all: The Tibetan Book of the Dead (free download). I also recommend you read the Bhagavad Gita (free copy with audio recitation). 

If  you have a question about one thing or another, I invite you to comment on this blog post, or send me an email:

Are You Afraid to Die?

A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.

--Mark Twain
image of a penny with 'In God We Trust' Some of us act as though we're one of a select few who God will allow to live on, long after others have died. It's like we expect to hold on to our jobs, hobbies, and our beating hearts forever--if that were possible. The funny thing is, most of us
don't realize that by our action that we're actually projecting this attitude!
Here's what Jesus Christ had to say about those who love their lives here in this world:
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto until life eeternal.
Jesus, St. John, 12:25
The question is, "Is Christ speaking of the loss of our soul, our eternal life, or what?"

A Personal Experience With Death

I'm personally not afraid to die. Truth is, I did it once before, in 1971. I was electrocuted by approximately 160,000 to 180,000 volts. So about this time you're wondering, "So how could you die and now live?"

I had been sitting on a lab chair at my workbench. When my muscles reacted--which I understand is often the case when someone dies in this manner, I was propelled backward onto a concrete floor. I was told that the fall to the concrete is what jolted my heart back into operation.

When I regained consciousness, I was was breathing hard and fast, trying to re-oxygenate my blood. After a few minutes, I felt better and I was able to appraise my situation, but I was still unable to get up.

Laying there on the hard, cold floor, I took note that I was 15 to 20 feet away from where I had been seated. Om was roaring full tilt inside of me, physically and mentally. It took me at least 20 minutes to gain enough strength to finally get up off the floor.

In Retrospect

Next year it will 40 years since that fateful, frightening day. First, it's hard for me to believe that it's been that long since it took place. The recollection of the events that took place are so vivid in my mind. It's as if it were only yesterday. Sitting here writing this blog post, I could only shake my head in disbelief.

The truth is, there are hundreds of thousands of people who have died and come back to tell about it. This type of event is commonly referred to as a Near Death Experience (NDE). I'm sure you've heard many stories about the light, the tunnel, etc.

I'd like to hear your thoughts on the issue of death, especially if you've also experienced a NDE. Please use the contact form in the sidebar, or use the comment window at the bottom of this post.~
