The question Isn't, "Is there life after death." Rather, the question Is: "Are you alive before death."

The question Isn't, "Is there life after death."

Rather, the question Is: "Are you alive before death."

Some folks say that Jesus is the secret of life, others say
that Buddha is, others say that Mohammed is. For just about
every religious sect, they have as the basis of their religion
a central figure which they claim is the secret of life.

And, as a side note, if these religions didn't believe that the
main character behind the religion weren't the secret, then
why would anyone even bother believing in them anyway?

Science has claimed the secret of life to be DNA.

In her song of the same title, Faith Hill sang:

The secret of life is a good cup of coffee
The secret of life is keep your eye on the ball
The secret of life is a beautiful woman

Tom T. Hall wrote:

It's faster horses,
Younger women,
Older whiskey and
More money.

But if there really is a true secret of life, then shouldn't
it stand to reason that this secret would be a constant.
Something that remains the same despite religious viewpoints,
despite centuries, and despite races of people.

A secret of life would be something that would be applicable
to all folks, in all times and ages and something that would
be of benefit to any and all, irregardless of their religion
or creed or race or region of the world, or era of history.

A good case could be made for love being the secret of life.
And if love was pure and unadulterated, then perhaps we
would explore this deeper. However love can be spent in
many less than virtuous avenues. There are those who have a deep,
passionate love for things like drugs, pornography, money,
the ways of the devil, and so on.

Is there a one single, true in all cases....secret of life?

If so, shouldn't this one thing be equal and beneficial to the
same degree for all.

Don't we all believe that the secret of life should be some
special knowledge that would set us all free, solve all our
problems and make us happy, contented and loved by everyone?

Down through the ages, the advice of the sages and prophets
has been, "know thyself".

I've got some good news for you.

The secret of life, that one elixir which has baffled
sages and seekers since time began, that one thing which
has been sought after for centuries on end, the one thing
that will provide all the


You are the secret of life.

You, the entire you, the fabulous you, You, the single
entity that is alive. You alone hold the key, you alone
have the answer. You alone already have and hold the
secret of life.

It is hidden in the I Am.

It is hidden in all that you are.

It is hidden in your identity.

It is called life.

The entire one single thing, the secret of life, is that
you are life. You are alive. You have the answer within
you to whatever it is you are seeking.

No one else does. Only you.


The great I am is you.

There was once an argument among the gods over where to hide the
secret of life so that men and women would not find it. One god
said: Bury it under a mountain; they will never look there. No,
the others said, one day they will find ways to dig up mountains
and will uncover it. Another said: Sink it in the depths of the
ocean; it will be safe there. No the others objected, humans will
one day find a way to plumb the ocean's depths and find it
easily. Finally another god said: Put it inside them; men and
women will never think of looking for it there for a long time,
by the time they are intelligent enough to discover the secret,
perhaps they will also be wise enough to use it properly.

If there ever was a secret of life, it's that you Are.

It's that you should believe in you as being all that is life.

You already knew and look deep inside yourself,
you will know this is truth.

Life is you. Life without you, wouldn't be life.

It's the exact same for every creature on this earth. It
never changes, indeed, it cannot. It's the same for all
races and for all ages.

The secret of life is never to be found external to oneself,
if you're looking outside yourself, you're looking in
all the wrong places.

It is always to be found as oneself.

And that's great news. You have your entire life ahead of
you. The past is over, it's history, it cannot ever be
replayed or re-done again. You have your future. You have
the very now, the very present to live and to be you
and to enjoy being the secret of life in.

enjoyed the read

Good article. Too many people are so worried about the afterlife, they forget that living this one and achieving their full potential is the key to the kingdom...whereever that may be. There is so much religious "devil" BS out there, promoted and cooked for centuries, to keep people from living a good life. I heard the other day that "fat cells" have devils. God is having a heart attack.

Very nice article, Dave. Great message, and much food for thought. I saw a couple of little typos you might want to clean up, and then this is ready for publication. I hope you pursue that, because I would like to see your message circulated.
