342 / Shiva

I make no pretense to be knowledgeable about Hinduism, but I deeply appreciated a comment on my earlier posting on Life And Death, as that posting was republished on Facebook.

The comment was a single word: Shiva.

Shiva is the destroyer god. His works, I conclude, are consistent with the rule I stated: Death prevails so that Life may abound.

The Bible says it, too:

Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit (John, 12:24).

Still, it's not a popular thought, however true. At least not when we think about applying the rule to ourselves, and to what we do.
