Of course the other issue is death as seen by various different cultures and beliefs. People generally develop all sorts of cosmological points of view, which are commonly categorized: atheist, agnostic, deist, polytheist, monotheist, pantheist, etc., etc., etc.
People generally take the path that they are attracted to, or attracts them. The path we take is what we open up to. How we bring what is in us out, as may be judged for better or worst, is how we are walking our path.
Regardless whether we call it “for better or for worst,“ it is still useful for our own very intimate expanded growth. All perspectives are useful for learning. The unchanging reality is beyond thoughts and words.
