Do We Live On?

...I do not need God, or the Messiah, do not need reincarnation or the immortality of the soul, nor some cosmic continuity of consciousness outside of a body, in order to believe that we live on. We live on in the effects of our actions that touch other people, in our words, and in our works. We live on in our children and those who remember us, but tiny bits of us continue on and on even without memory, as long as human culture continues, as long as people live by the examples set by others, as long as having been loved helps us to love....

Excerpt from Do We Live On? by David Ashford as spoken by the Rev. CJ McGregor, Dec 8, 2013 at 1stUUPB.
