What if Birth and Death are Actually the Same? | Justin Baldoni

In this talk, produced by the wonderful team behind Bahaiteachings.org, actor and My Last Days creator Justin Baldoni asks, “What if birth and death are actually the same?” Justin compares the world of the womb to this world and speaks about the physical attributes that we develop in utero in order to use them here. He very movingly describes the birth of his daughter, passing through a dark tunnel into the light, and hopes he will one day greet her joyously once more, when she passes from this world to the next. He wonders whether the prophets of God— such as Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, and Baha’u’llah—described death as a beautiful, spiritual transition because They knew where we’re all going. To finish, Justin asks one more question: “What are you spending your time developing?”

  1. Nur, wenn wir geboren werden, wird der Mensch für sein Leben im Mutterleib nicht zur Verantwortung gezogen. Ja, er kann das Licht der Welt erblicken. Mit den Tobi ist es etwas anderes, denn da ist es nicht so sicher, dass der Mensch das Licht erblicken wird. Nach dem Tunnelgang, wird nämlich der Mensch für seine Taten in diesem Leben verantwortlich gemacht. Darin liegt für mich der große Unterschied -und das vergießen der Tränen schon in dieser Welt???

  2. if the person is born, he is not responsible for his life in the womb. if, however, the person has died, he has to do his life responsibility. There lie for me the big tears.
