As an atheist, I accept my part in this universe. Knowing that one day my body and existence will desist, I am content and never wanting or begging for another body or an exaggerated afterlife. It takes a special kind of person to accept and realized that living is just part of the cycle and part of nothing bigger. Knowing that makes this one and only life much more appreciated. And in a way, for someone who's an infidel, I feel an abundance of gratitude.
