Write your lifeJourneyJournal and upload it to the clouds forever.
Paradoxically as it sound, if you upload the story of your life to the clouds, it may theoretically be forever, more than any tangible materialistic things you have gathered over the years.
Uploading the story of your life can be done easily, even today. You don’t need to publish every page. You can keep secret pages in the back office as your secret diary and expose only those pages you want to share. You can share specific pages to specific people.
Your journal journey's goal is mainly – writing to yourself your thoughts, ideas, insights and creativity. If you decide not to publish at all, you can always share the address and password of the platform you are using with a trustful friend /family member.
Writing to yourself, and then reading and re-writing, is a self -revealing process. Let’s say you write your wisdom article today. You read it in few days and edit it. After few days, you revise it again. This is a self-observation process, in which you learn about how dynamic being, you really are. Today you are, absolutely “authentic you”. And tomorrow you are absolutely “authentic you”, yet, you've changed… because life is a constant change.
At some point you may be pleased of what you wrote and not change it any longer.This is a stage you feel coherent with yourself. Does it make sense?
BTW, your blog, Facebook page or linkedin profile can not replace LifeJourneyJournal. They are too flat and limited.
You can also encourage your elderly parents /grandparents to upload their life story to the clouds. When they exit this planet, your children, grandchildren and generations to come, will read their authentic story, as they wrote it, and not as a second hand delivery memories and views of friends and families.
Saying that though, you can still revive your “gone with the wind” family members, by collecting their material of photos, video, audio , writing their stories by integrating evidence from friends and families, compose their story and share it in the clouds.
Most of the memorial websites you find – are sad and are parallel to the cemetery stones:
- a still picture, a candle.. flowers…
How about changing the energies, and uploading the funny videos, manifested creativity, and juicy stories of their “non- perfect personality”, as if they were here today? Again, this is an opportunity for your family members to learn more about their energetic loved ones, they have never met. (just think of it, how much do you know of your great grandma's life?)
I love the following poem:
Death is nothing at all Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped away into the next room.
I am I, and you are you; whatever we were to each other, that, we still are.
Call me by my old familiar name, speak to me in the easy way which you always used,put no difference in your tone, wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we shared together.
Let my name ever be the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of a shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around
the corner.All is well.
Henry Scott Holland 1847 -1918
Here is an example of a life journey journal framework http://avigaili.wix.com/me4ever-u4ever im playing with.
I can help you if you decide to write your own LifeJourneyJournal, if you encourage family member or if you bring to life your great grandma, or great great great uncle.
Life gets vivacity, when it is meaningful and we are aware of every moment of its vital energy.
For instance, you may forget what you did yesterday, and that day is dead for you.
You may purposely decide to take a person out of your life, yet at the same time, you may be very vivid,significant and influential to him/her. You may have love emotions to a person you never met in LinkedIn, whom you know you will never meet physically.
What do you say about the idea of uploading your lifeJourneyJournal to the clouds forever?
