The finitude of life

January 7, 2013

Alan Watts in this video calls for acceptance of the fact that life has a beginning and will have an end.  Eternal life is not appealing, he said.  That is true if the afterlife is no more than a continuation of this life.  I agree with the Christian writer C.S. Lewis that all that is necessary for there to be a Hell is eternal life and human nature as it is.   Life is a blessing, so, at least, it has been for me, and a blessing is no less a blessing if it has to come to an end.
