THE OTHER-LIFE of Leonard Oprea


special for Anna Maria her father as a young man

THE OTHER-LIFE

If the life after death was this life once again, the same

(of any of us, or, if you want, ours) in other words,

if after death

resurrected we would have a life like this one, changing in only

in better or worse,

at an individual or collective level of perceptions and conclusions

(as in fact it is commonly believed about the life after death),

then,

Jesus Christ’s Sacrifice would have no more justification at all.

Implicitly the Lord’s sacrifice would not be justified through

the deliberate sacrificing of His Only Son and One Born, Jesus Christ.

It would be doubted soon, without hesitations or convert chances or reconvert,

the existence of God . . .

This kind of “resurrection” would become inevitably useless.

In a certain way, that is the one of opposing the dream “for better”

with the final result,

everything would happen like in the famous Romanian tale

“Youth without oldness and life without death”.

The life after death would become the paradigm for the sinister farces.

By happiness it is not like that!.

Because exactly how God is that He is – as a direct and irreconcilably

consequence – life after death is other-life.

And we know only a human truth about: that it exists and is eternal.

So far we know nothing.

We feel the human truth about, but we are scared.

So far, we do not want it.

The proof?

Very simple – here it is:

the fight to preserve and prolong sine die this life.

One you can endure.

Exactly how it is for each one of us. Good or bad.

What does it mean?

The fight for an eternal postponement of death.

But if it would be accepted, then understood, then felt, then

embraced in open and purified heart these following words of God:

“Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God,

and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (John 17:3), because:

“Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God,

and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” (John 17:3), because:

I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one:

I in them and you in me.

May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that

you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. (John 17: 22, 23),

then for certain,

this other-life would become the supreme aim of this life.

As for the death?

It would really be only a passing.

Jesus specifies:

“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.

In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

(John 16:33)

Hello God

( Trilogy of Theophil Magus- The Life / Volume III )

(Xlibris Corporation/Random House Ventures/ USA 2013 / Library of Congress Control Number: 2013917769/ ISBN: Hardcover 978-1-4931-0719-3/ Softcover 978-1-4931-0718-6/ Ebook 978-1-4931-0720-9 – Kindle amamzon.com ; Nook barnesandnoble.com ) ( essay-novel, 400 pages, illustrated, foreword by Jeff Howe; back-cover quotes by Vladimir Tismăneanu, Nicolae Steinhardt)

(The works of Leonard Oprea are within the sphere of philosophical thinking represented by S. Kierkegaard, V. Soloviov or Teilhard de Chardin. Though similar, his works are not inspired, nor influenced by the writings of these Christian philosophers. The special importance and the crystal-clear beauty of Leonard Oprea’s meditations are revealed by his diamond ideal of humankind’s Salvation through Faith. “Hello, God”, the third volume of Trilogy of Theophil Magus, is an unique book worldwide. It inspires and thrills the reader making him ready for a sincere and responsible meditation on the human condition, now, at the dawn of the third millennium. /Vladimir Tismaneanu – philosopher, essayist and author/

Leonard Oprea’s dominant perspective is one of cold objectivity, relying little on easy emotions, with the exception of hidden, profound feelings and questions. Themes are his life’s purpose – the ultimate springs of human actions… Intelligence, laconic sarcasm, humor, right targeting. How could we not be indebted to the author? He put his talent of storytelling to serve as exhortation which is a healthy response in the presence of the morbid, the simplistic in the face of artificial, the man-loving of light against darkness and evil. / Nicolae Steinhardt – philosopher, essayist and author)
