YOUR Spirituality and Christopher Hitchens dying as an atheist
This is from ME-and as much as I always enjoyed Christopher
Hitchens on his TRUTH – I was so sad that while he was dying he
wrote a book mon Mortality-really his mortality and how he faced
his dying while trying to finish out his life. Not unlike “The Last
Lecture” or Gilda Radnor’s book on her own dying while trying to
finish up their lives.
Christopher Hitchens never shied away from telling the truth at
least the truth as he saw it- but he wrote with stoicism and lucid in
the face of imminent death.
Writing to the very end – and sharing his dying with his audience
and I as much as I appreciated Christopher and his writings I
have never understood how anyone could be an atheist.
Dying and not believing in anything beyond SELF just does not
register with me and looking at the Universe and all the written
history before from India, Samaria, Egypt. Plato, and the tribes of
Africa. So, one has to wonder why he did not have any
connection to his energy field or his conscious connection to other
energies in the world.
Christopher talked in the book about aches and pains he was
enduring physically. He did say he wished he could be dying for
somebody but it seems to me in his search and writing about truth
which was gone with intellect and beautifully done. Yet, at the
end, he had no one to die for, no kindred spirit, no partner he
loved, no Higher Power he was going to meet going over the
bridge. No purpose in his dying young and so painfully. But,
dying in hospice care must have been some solace for a person
who had no loving and close relationships? He argued that
atheism gave him a sense of urgency.
Read some of Christopher’s books very well written and an
intellect to be sure.
But, No one to die for?
Quietly sad, and no one to think about outside of a 3-foot energy
