Is there a beyond, a God? This is a fair question to ask during this
lifetime. You can lead a good life without knowing the answer, or
with not being sure. It can even be brave to do so because if you do
“good” it’s without otherworldly ulterior motives or expectations. Still,
it is an important question to ask. You have a right to know before your
life is ended.
It is good to have no preconceptions when asking. Forget everything you’ve
read or learned on the subject. Pretend you’re on a desert island with
most of your needs met and you have time to wonder, be alone, and think.
It is just you and existence, no religion, no culture, no traditions, no
activities. You are alone with the ultimate question, “Is there a
maker?” Ask it, wrestle with it, ponder over it.
