All Roads Lead Somewhere

Earlier this week, one of my blogging buddies, a genuine “Jersey Girl,” posted:

The Discovery on NetFlix

and asked if anyone had seen the movie and if we have any thoughts about what happens to us when we die?  IMG_5088

Having spent most of my adult life around death, (I was a funeral director and an EMT for over thirty-five years) I could not pass up the opportunity and finally watched it this evening.

The movie had more twists and turns than Lombard Street and while there were some dark moments, the ending was positive, brought a tear to my eye and left me pondering questions that I have asked throughout my life.

It also made me realize how old Robert Redford has gotten, but I digress.

What happens when we die?  Do we come in and out of people’s lives. . . from prior lives? Do we move to a place where we can still see what is happening on earth?  If so, do we see good and bad?  For example, can we observe our surviving family/friends? I’m not ready to go there as it makes us too God-like. I have, however, had enough deja vu moments that I won’t turn my back on any possibility.

The movie also reminded me of the writing of one of my favorite authors, NY Times Bestselling Author, Andra Watkins and her “Nowhere Series” novels. They really go hand in hand and if you like the movie, get Andra’s book, “Hard To Die.”   Her next novel, I am Number 13 is due out in  November and those of us familiar with her writing, are anxiously waiting for the release to learn about Emmaline’s next life.

I will also watch the movie again to look for all the little nuances I probably missed the first time as I was trying to figure out what was going on.

Watch it. I guarantee that it will leave you thinking. Also, just to note. There is no nudity or profane language, which is unusual these days.

Thank you, Yvonne for sharing this interesting movie.

    Ray, I’m glad you watched it as I thought it might peak your interest considering your career and life experiences. Considering new information always entices me to think and to grow my internal faith and see what feels innately right for me. Deja vu and immediate connections with people I have no earthly reason for having met before is still a mystery to me and a facet I find intrinsically tugging at me for further knowledge and investigation. I have to watch the movie again when I am peaceful as well because I think it’s one of those that needs a second go-round in order to understand it more fully. And sadly, yes, Robert Redford has gotten old but haven’t we all? Yikes. Time marches on if we’re blessed to stay earth bound for a little while longer. Thanks for sharing my post and for the follow up with your thoughts. Beautifully done Ray.

      In retrospect, I could have could ventured into the current uptick in suicides and whether its to leave “here” or go “there”? Definitely need to watch again.

        That’s such a huge subject Ray. I think you did it beautifully the way you wrote it. Perhaps in another post you could speak of suicide when you know that it’s meant to be written at that time.
