victory-over-death

(Death) is a condition that we have brought upon ourselves so that we may pass into a greater condition with greater possibilities. ~ Life and Teaching of the Masters of the Far East

I grew up in an oppressive religious environment, as I know many of you did. I can think of stronger words. But “oppressive” will do for now.

Among other things, the article said, “…under the right conditions, two people can observe the same event, see two different things happen, and both be correct. (Emphasis is mine.)
