One day, in the very distant future you will embark on a journey of such transition, that you have absolutely no idea what to really expect. You will undergo a complete transformation; you will have to leave this place, shed this body, bid farewell to life as you know it, and go somewhere you are not familiar with. Has that thought ever frightened you? You will have to leave behind everything that you love and everyone you adore, possibly forever! There won’t be any occupation to keep you busy out there, because you don’t need to earn a living to feed, clothe and shelter the body which you have left behind. You will no longer have the eyes to appreciate a beautiful sunset, the nose to smell the fragrance of a flower or the tongue to taste all the foods you once enjoyed. Have these thought ever entered your mind? Are you prepared for what is inevitable, or do you not believe in an afterlife so it is something that does not require any preparation?
