Picture for Thought: Where are we going

Have you wondered what happened to our wonderful nice body in the grave?

One word of caution: I don’t take responsibility if after seeing the pictures makes you feel bad or something. If you are weak and want to live in DENIAL, DON’T CLICK the following link. It might make you depressed or simply freak you out !!! The pictures are for real.

In the Final Testament, (95:4-8) the condition of man is described like :

Certainly God created man in the best of stature,
Then God render him the lowest of the low.
Except such as believe and do righteous deeds: For they shall have a reward unfailing.
Then what can, after this, contradict you, as to the coming judgment ? Is not God the most conclusive of all judges?

The pictures in that link are just the end condition on earth. But it doesn’t end here. The worst conditions are yet to be delivered to man after the Final Judgement. But there is perpetual reward for those who live a God conscious, a self conscious life and who follow the truth. Surely from dust man was created, to dust he returns and surely from dust he will again be resurrected on the Day of Judgement when all matters will be decided.

A mystic poem on the same line of thoughts:

In the dead of night, a Sufi began to weep.

He said, "This world is like a closed coffin, in which

We are shut and in which, through our ignorance,

We spend our lives in folly and desolation.

When Death comes to open the lid of the coffin,

Each one who has wings will fly off to Eternity,

But those without will remain locked in the coffin.

So, my friends, before the lid of this coffin is taken off,

Do all you can to become a bird of the Way to God;

Do all you can to develop your wings and your feathers."

~ Farid ud Din Attar, translation by Andrew Harvey and Eryk Hanut - 'Perfume of the Desert'
