Plan to outlive life



"The great use of life is to spend it for something that will out last it"...William James.
A single line but has a deep meaning underlining its importance. What is the purpose of life ? If we ask ourselves, there will be a row of answers that'll just pop out of our mouth....life is to be lived happily...life is all about success...life is lived taking each day as a challenge..
whenever we think, we think in terms of life that we would lead until we are alive..after all no one can be present after they are dead...or can we??????????????????????????
Do we ever prepare for the life that we would lead after we are dead?The answer to this question is very simple yet very difficult to undestand .....Yes, we can live after we die ...we can actually outlive life.
Seems to be adapted from a suspense thriller..before you think too much let me tell you an honest fact... you don't have to be physically present to live after you die ...still you will be living among the people you used to and your home will be the hearts of those for whom you did something that will keep you alive.... in their memories , in their conversations, whenever they pray you'll be blessed with peace ..you will live through your kind endeavours..things that you did, not for your self , but for others who were in need.
Sometimes its important to think beyond the limits of the boundaries carved out by our senses. To think about the importance of the ultimate preparation.
Death is an undeniable fact , the only thing that we can do to be alive forever is to build a home of love in the hearts of those who need us, those for whom you stand with open arms ready to take away or atleast share the pain that they are going through, believe me even if you give water to a thirsty dog , it becomes indebted to you for life , in turn making a place for you in its heart .
We often think about the great deeds that we can do to help society , the world, etc but we do not realise the greatest fact of life , preparations can never be enough.
Sometimes a tiny little deed can work wonders .
If at all one wants to plan for the future, the very first priority should be a plan to outlive life, because its no one else but we who make miracles happen, through our consistent efforts and with the blessings of God.

What a beautiful post, Sana! You have rightly expressed that love defeats death, in the sense that we live on in the hearts of those who love us. Thank you and my best wishes to you.
