Backwards Or Forwards?

“The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough. It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death! What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should die first, get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch, you go to work. You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You do drugs, alcohol, you party, you get ready for high school. You go to grade school, you become a kid, you play, you have no responsibilities, you become a little baby, you go back into the womb, you spend your last nine months floating..."

Sweetest friends - the Torah perspective is: Life is great! Everyday you grow learn and become wiser. Then after hard work and having overcome many obstacles a person has the honor of leaving this impure world of falsehood and living on in a pure and perfect world, basking in the glory of Hashem and enjoying the fruits of his labor.

Life is not about partying. Hard to swallow such a notion in our hedonistic, materialistic society.

Love and blessings!!
