The Tomb Video


The world has come up with yet another great invention. This new product allows you to embed a flat LCD touch screen on your tomb and have it play any sort of message. You can tell over life stories, get the last word in on a disagreement or share a personal message. Each tomb video has a computer with a hard disc or microchip memory that allows the deceased to speak from the grave through a video message.

From a Jewish perspective we spend our whole life making this video. The video we create will be played in the minds and hearts of the people we come into contact during our short stay here. Will our movie be something that people will want to watch? Will our friends and family be positively influenced by it? Will it have any bearing on their life? How popular our video will be will depend on how much quality time we spent developing it. I would imagine that anyone that does order the Vidstone will be on his best behavior during the recording in order to leave a favorable impression. Sadly if a person did not behave himself while he was alive a tomb video will not help him.

Each day we create another clip that is added to the video of our life. To date we may not have the highest quality video but the Jewish year comes equipped with an opportunity to erase it and re-record. Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur are the times in the year that we can repent for our mistakes and start anew. If we focus on the meaning of these days we will have the opportunity to design a new video to our liking.

What an appropriate nick, lost. If you think that you learned the important things about life in kindergarten, then you haven't even started on the Path.

I didn't start learning Truth until I was 49...and I had years in the so called Bible of the half-truth..the KJV should stand for the attempt to Kill the Jewish Values of Torah.

Mary, welcome and good point. Lost, I have to agree with Mary in that life is about constantly learning and growing.

It is a great Yom Kippur thought from the Baal HaTanya.

Chairdog, I'm not sure I know what you mean. I can not imagine someone blogging with bad intentions.

Actually, some people do have bad intentions when blogging.

What I like about your blog is that you have good posts.
