So, today I don’t really know what to post, but I do have a random thought concerning my fantasy universe, the Rai Saga.
I personally do not believe that the existence of our souls ends after death. Nor do I believe that we all become shifters after we die (for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Rai Saga, after you die in the Dominion of Rai you are reborn as a Creature of Rai, an immortal being who can shift from calling form – animal form- to natural form – human form). However, I do believe that after we die, our souls continue to exist, and we have a purpose.
I tried to fictionalize that belief through my Clans of Rai.
Why am I thinking about this right now? Well, there are a few personal things happening in my life, and in the life of my family, that has guided me to think about my own personal mortality and the mortality of my loved ones.
I do not fear death, I embrace it as the next stage of existence. And while I do not know what exactly lies beyond the grave, I choose to believe that there is something, some purpose, for me to serve. And while I truly wish that I will have the ability to shift into a volkrog in the afterlife, I believe that such wishes are best left in the realm of literature.
