Is there a Life after Death?

Humans are the only species on earth who know for a fact they will die one day. But then again, this knowledge isn’t the one they relish. Throughout history, people have sought eternal life trying almost everything and most recently trying to fulfill this hope by pinning it to science. The only thing that surpasses this hope that death can be postponed forever is the hope that life will continue after death. And this belief in life after death comes in all shapes and sizes. In between the views involving continued existence in a physical body, and those in which survival takes place outside the body we are still stuck with it, trying to reason and understand the same.

Today let’s talk about that one question which has troubled every mind for centuries, And the question is, is there life after death? I mean, what we know for a fact is that one hundred percent of the people that you’ll ever meet are you going to die because we are structured to. But, is that it? What happens to you after you die? And if that is so, what’s the basis of the same? How does it even work? Let’s try to evaluate.

If words of Plato were to be considered, he said that “I’m not sure what’s after death but nature seems to give us a picture of what it will be like, some new kind of life after death. Inside of every piece of fruit is a seed and if you plant the seed, you get the tree that brought it. An oak tree has an acorn and the acorn, if you plant it, you get another oak tree. The caterpillar goes into this cocoon and it seems to die and then it bursts forth as a butterfly.” Does that mean we have an ulterior purpose ? or is it all about For you are dust, And to dust, you shall return.”

According to Anthropologists almost every culture and religion known on the face of the earth believe in some kind of afterlife – everyone from the primitive cultures to the Amazon to the Himalayas to urban cultures.

There is this something in human beings that believe that death is just not an end, there’s something. Some people end up building pyramids while others build tombs, if we look closely into the rituals, people think that they can take their riches with them. Somehow death unites us all (at least the way we think). There’s a universal belief system in terms of life after death – a common thread of all people.

That hunger, that thirst for knowing the meaning, the significance which never quite gets satiated. No matter what we accomplish, no matter how good it gets, there’s always that, hmmmm, we’re not quite there. And that is another reason to believe that there is life after death. Heaven or hell whatever you name it, there has to be something.

And then, even a part of science, i.e. “NDE” or the near-death experiences conducts various researchers trying to put an end to this mystery. With numerous people reporting near-death experiences where they see a light at the end of the tunnel or a mystic figure waiting to take them has been largely reported.

Then comes our mythologies, the Hindu Mythology for that matter has a whole book called “Garur Puran” which tells you about how will you treated in hell or heaven according to your past deeds and the way you had led your life on Earth. Bible Claims that Jesus resurrected after being dead and buried for 3 days which yet again gives us hope of the same.

What is the truth behind Life and Death? Can we somehow live forever? Is there a light waiting for us at the end of the tunnel? Only time will tell. Till then let’s hatch more conspiracy theories.

Live-In Relationships ~ New Kid on the block?

A rush of chilliness ran down my spine when he asked me if I wanted to move in with him. I stood there, dazzled and confused at the same time. Did I hear it right? Or maybe he meant something else? A sense of delight was slowly chipping in but I kept a blank face on, holding my ground, waiting for him to come again. As startled as I was, I didn’t want to give that away. I slowly moved towards him pretending as if I haven’t heard him in the first instance. “Sorry,” I said. “I guess I couldn’t hear you”, gently sliding that strand of hair that was covering my left eye while the right lay glued at him, catching every last bit of reaction I could gather. He, for once hesitated, and then mustering up his voice said again, “Do you wanna Move in with me?”. And there I could see him turning pale as if he had seen a ghost. While I, on the other hand, was trying to control my laughter on looking at his face which was showing signs of uncertainty and fear. I leaned towards him wrapping my hands around his shoulders, staring him in the eye and said, “I thought you would never ask.” and that was our moment, A moment to cherish. While the sun was setting down, giving way to the moon, the sea met the horizon, crimson redness scattering all around as if it’s giving an approval for us to be together.

But it was a day later when reality struck. LIVE-IN was supposedly a huge deal for people around. I couldn’t understand why. I mean, It’s me who is the one who will be impacted and it’s everyone else around who are feeling the heat. Why so? Well maybe because it’s their job to judge! But then I don’t know what makes them judge it anyway. Two grown-up individuals who like each other decide to live together under one roof. Where in this world does that sound Corrupted? And yet, It’s frowned upon. It’s easy to judge others but then judging someone on the basis of a preconceived bias which is all but positive might be termed as a jerk move. (Oh Damn. Are the moral police reading this? :3)

Let’s get into some statistics while we are talking about this to make it a solid research supported account about the new kid on the block, and most importantly, one who is here to stay, Live-in Relationship! The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development reports that more than half (54 percent) of all first marriages between 1990 and 1994 began with unmarried cohabitation. This said I guess more than half of the people can’t be that wrong. Eh?

BUT BUT BUT, There always has to be a but. Isn’t it? 😂

Live-In comes with its own share of problems and downfalls. Let’s me try to lay that down too :

  • Living together is considered to be more stressful than being married.
  • Just over 50% of couples who have lived-in ever get married.
  • Couples who lived together before marriage tend to divorce early in their marriage.
  • Compared to married individuals, those cohabiting have higher levels of depression and substance abuse.

Should that stop us from getting into one? Naah. We are the Millennials. We love to live dangerously. But then again completely ignoring the fact and the noticed patterns would be a foolish move. It’s always the decision of the couple. What can be done is put in the rationality of thoughts about your motivation for living together.
Is it just out of convenience?
Is it to spend more time together?
Are you uncertain about the relationship and want to make a more informed decision?
Or, is it just a prelude to marriage?
What’s need to be Kept in mind is that couples who live together seem to have the most successful outcomes when they have already made a clear commitment to each other.
Let me try to draw a line to this now for two reasons.
One, He is getting bored and I can’t see him wait on me while I am glued to my screen.
Two, The first reason is important enough. 😉

Last but not the least guys. Whether you choose to live under the same roof or miles apart. Distance is never a problem when you love someone. It’s always about priorities and if you could make the person of your life your priority. Then trust me, all these statistics and research would be of no use at all.
BECAUSE LOVE IS WHAT LOVE WANTS!  😋

5 signs a girl like you

It is often said that women are a mystery and that it is difficult to understand them. Maybe, maybe not. Women are subtle in a lot of ways, especially when they are interested in someone; a slight brush of the hand, a certain way that they look at you and more. So, if you’re wondering if a certain someone might be interested in you, watch out for these five signs.  

 

 

  • She cannot maintain eye contact with you for long

    It difficult to look into the eyes of the one you like without becoming completely flustered. Girls tend to not meet the gaze of the one they’re into lest they give away more than they want to.

     

  • Her friends know about you

    If a girl is into you she will definitely tell her friends about you. They know what you look like and if you’ve had conversations, her friends have the screenshots. So if her friends are giving her a hard time when you’re around, know that you’ve been a topic of some very interesting and positive conversations.

  • She compliments you

Depending on what kind of a person she is, her compliments can be either subtle or straight forward. She’ll laugh even at your really bad and cheesy jokes, tell you that she likes your eyes or that she
thinks that you’re great.

  • She uses your name when talking/texting to you

    When texting she’ll try to make use of your name as much as she can without it sounding weird. It is said that the usage of someone’s name tends to turn the attention of the person whose name is being use towards the speaker.

 

  • She subtly asks about your dating life

This will never, ever be a direct question. She’ll subtly bring up your girlfriend in a conversation saying things like, “Your girlfriend is a lucky person”, hoping that you’ll laugh and say that you don’t have a girlfriend thus giving her the information she needs without her having asked for it directly. Sneaky, sneaky.

 


So, now that the secrets have been revealed look out for these five signs to find your special someone. Thank us later!
