Questions, perhaps unanswerable

There is an advertisement on television for some drug that may extend your life if you need it in the treatment of a specific disease. The list of its side effects was extensive and seemingly debilitating.

I understand the desire to want to live long, to be with family and friends, to get one’s affairs in order, but the list of downside effects on this disease was to me questionable.

Here are my questions. If we, as we profess to believe in the practice of our various religions, believe in a better place after this life, why would we want to stay in this density and medical difficulty for what could be a short time or even a year’s time?

Why not go home with peace, with willingness, with an appreciation for the gift of life that continues in another form?
