From dust to dust
All my entire life, I have believed that we are made of earth, pieces of Materia, just like plants and animals. The quote from the Bible so often recited at funerals, confirms this (Eccl. 3). And how we then becomes like fertility for the ground as we continue in the cycle of life.
But, after my near death experience in 2014 when I collapsed, I gained another understanding. That we are made of light and to light we return!
