Reflecting on the Universe and on Ourselves

The Gift of Life: Death & Dying, Life & Living DVD set offers a vision of hope and a view of reality that counter the cultural norms that view death as a tragedy, or the end of living, or an entry into harsh judgment and retribution. These videos are out-takes from the video series and presented here for your enrichment. A new video will be presented every Monday.

English Transcript

For the first time that we know of in all of creation, material has been so arranged and developed and life has emerged from it, or been created in addition to it, that enables people to reflect on the universe, to appreciate it, to respond in a human way which means emotionally, as well as physically and spiritually and to reflect on ourselves.  And so, the great question of life when it begins to be adequately self-reflective and self-conscious through the years of infancy, childhood, early adolescence is that we don’t know who we are.


Reflexionando acerca del universo y acerca de nosotros mismos

Por lo que sabemos, por primera vez en toda la creación el mundo material se ha organizado y desarrollado de tal manera, y la vida ha surgido de él o ha sido creada junto con él, que podemos reflexionar acerca del universo, apreciarlo, responder  de manera humana, es decir emocionalmente, y también física y espiritualmente, y reflexionar acerca de nosotros. Y así, la gran pregunta que surge cuando comenzamos a poder reflexionar adecuadamente y hacernos conscientes de la propia vida desde nuestra infancia, niñez y temprana adolescencia, es que no sabemos quiénes somos.
