This article is about how we view death. We lost some of our members to life graduation in September and although we are proud of them, it's hard to wrap our minds around the reality of them being gone. It's not easy for those of us left behind and resting in peace is for us as they are already at peace. Let's talk about our thoughts on death after reading this article. I'm looking forward to hearing all of your thoughts.

Yes my mom passed away on the 5th and although we were expecting it it was very difficult. She battled cancer and despite all our attempts to defeat it we were not successful. This means it was time and she was not in any pain when she graduated and I do like knowing my mother graduated. I did read the article and it is true. I look at her photos with tearful eyes but I know in my soul she is on a new, more peaceful, stress-free journey. I am more comforted about death or passing since finding my faith. I don't fear it anymore. I know all the mess we grow up learning about is just that, mess. We have to learn to take full responsibility for ourselves and once we really grasp that we know we are in the drivers seat and in control of our destiny. I loved this article Mark and I thank you for making how we cope with passing as comforting as it can possibly be.

I do think thinking about or talking about death is morbid, or I did until I read this article. I want say, talking about it has given it prospective in my mind. It is feared because it is the unknown. It’s not like a trip that anyone comes back from. I’m glad to know that it’s not the end of the everything and you either go to heaven or hell. I like realizing we are already in the worse form of hell there is. I also appreciate Mason putting the idea of a devil into perspective to. Now I can honestly see how ridiculous it is. I can also see how important it is for us to realize our worth, something they have tried to strip away from us for thousands of years. I also can see how responsibility is necessary we learn to blame and deny our culpability when we take part in something that turns our very wrong. We learn to blame it on the devil and wash our hands of it. It’s not that simple and we need to realize that we have to control ourselves. I can see how important all of this is and I am glad I’m learning because it is making it easier for me to have a more rational view about passing and that is comforting.

I like being able to discuss death comfortably. I miss my friend but man I’m glad he went forward. It also comforts me to know my parents came back in and will have an opportunity to try this learn teach experience again. So…question, is it possible to know who someone is when they come back in? I mean when soulmates find each other again how do the know they are soulmates? How do the recognize each other. I ask because I dreamed my mother came back as a black woman and she kept visiting me, traveling miles but still in the same state. She’s younger but for some reason she feels drawn to me. What’s that all about?

I like this conversation because it helped me deal with all the deaths that have claimed so many in my family and my circle of friends. I do think my parents either have to or have returned because they were very racist. They were a part of the white culture that felt they were superior. My father was terrible to minorities especially black people. I imagine him loving living in the era of trump. This would be his moment. That clearly wasn’t a good way to die. He died with hate in his heart and so did my mother. I’m glad my kids are on the right path and they haven’t been overly exposed to traditional religion because it is simply a joke, a horrible joke.

Okay Mason…Mark, my grandpa read this article and he said he actually believes everything in it. He said Mark is a leader and he respects him the same way he respected Sir Paul. He actually said Mark is very intelligent and he admires his logic. He also said the thought of reincarnation is terrifying because he knows he will come back as a minority. I told him the good thing about that is he wouldn’t remember anything in this life and he whistled. I couldn’t believe I was actually having a conversation with my grandfather about death. We are making progress group in ways we never expected. I have never had a conversation this pleasant with my grandfather. It was amazing, death, we had a conversation about death and it was pleasant :lol: :lol: :lol:.
