The pleasure of one’s father brought one forth into life, but not before one’s mother was one’s father’s pleasure. Thus, without pleasure or without attraction or without contention there is no making or taking the form of life to be able to continue with life. And once in life if there is no pleasure or gladness or joy or there is no contention for life or to continue alive thus there is no salvation to continue with life but continue with life in abundance. Thus, as contention in the womb brought one life to keep one alive and thus be born with form thus one also must contend while alive for rebirth so that one can be reborn with reform or as if with another form but an incorruptible form or reform.
Sometimes the greater lost is what was gained. And sometimes the greater gain was what was lost. Life can be the greater lost gained if one knows not how to keep or maintain life beyond food, water and shelter. Man seeks action or adventure or pleasure away from himself because he does not know any better. He fantasizes about death or about life beyond because it is easier or practically effortless. But man is a conscious being and as a conscious being man is a contender and should contend for conscious knowledge just as he contends for food, water and shelter. In fact, food, water and shelter are all knowledge but knowledge to maintain the body long enough so that the conscious being can gather the conscious knowledge needed to keep life going in abundance and without ever having to know end or death.
