Heartwarming Story of life after death

Liang Yaoyi

Children dream of being superheroes and saving those in need of help. Eleven-year-old Liang Yaoyi from South China’s Guangdong Province was actually able to make an incredible difference and be a hero for others. He had been fighting brain cancer since he was 9, and surgeries and treatments were not able to eliminate the tumor.

Chinese Doctors bow down to an 11-year-old boy with brain cancer who saved several lives by donating his organs. Liang Yaoyi’s wish to donate his organs moved his medical team so much they bowed in reverence on the day of his death. Selfless Liang, and gifted student, died from the tumor – his mother can be seen crying in the background of the poignant photo. Heartwarming Story of life after death
 
As he neared the end, he revealed to his mother that he wanted her to donate his organs so that he could save the lives of other children. It was likely that he had read about tissue donation at school, through one story about bone marrow donations to treat leukemia and another titled, ”Immortal Eyes.”
Liang told Daily China: “There are many people doing great things in the world. They are great, and I want to be a great kid too.”​ He also said the donation was a chance for him to be “alive in another way”​.

Thich Nhat Hanh, Mindfulness Guru, in some of his recorded dharma talks would highlight, whilst he did not believe that consciousness moved from one body to the next, he belives that there is life after death in the same way that Liang was quoted. Even if the spirit/soul or consciousness does not move on, we live on in everything we have touched or breathed into.

Thich Nhat Hanh
Thich Nhat Hanh
Our breath and DNA has been offered in so many ways back to the Earth in which we inhabit. If we are lucky enough to have children our genetic makeup will carry on and on into many lives. He often talked about the importance of his books and dharma recordings as a way that he will still be alive in many peoples hearts and minds at the point they read or listen to them.
If you read his book in the present or listen to his dharma recordings in the present, reflect on it in the present and bring the practise to the present then you are experiencing his teachings in the present. So even if the book or the audio was completed years or decades ago, the experience is present moment, like as if Thich Nhat Hanh was right there guiding you; like he never died.
Whilst death is inevitable, whether you believe in souls/consciousness or not, we will at least live on forever in the DNA and memories of life itself, whether it is through our childrens children, or in the soil, the trees, the air we breathe.
Have a wonderful day, celebrate every moment in recognising how amazing you are.
