We will not live forever, but life goes on. It’s a constant cycle of life and death forever changing. All that is around us: the trees, the flowers, the blue sky will all persevere without our influence. When we die we become a part of the cycle. Our bodies may decompose, but we live on as our souls or spirits transcend this time and place. Floating among the stars we find what we seek...that mystery that has alluded us during life becomes the fact we were always ready to find. What you find all depends upon how you live your life. Live with honor and do good unto all you meet. For in the end we are all the same dust in the wind...
