Chance and Opportunity

 

   What if a dimension exists in which one is able to take their experiences and knowledge of this life and apply them differently in the next? Somewhere between my efforts to achieve my desires and needs, I consider the notion of an afterlife, and if feasible, could it possibly bridge the gap between my hopeful wishes and harsh matter-of-facts?
