reincarnation and a afterlife in heaven or hell or wherever it may be are ideas beliefs there not yet proven. but metamorphosis on the other hand is very real its proven. consider this life after life in a new form . today we are caterpillars. but maybe just maybe tomorrow we might become the butterfly. if death is the end and there is only darkness. we will be none the wiser .but while aware think big. think the imposable .
I do have a hope that there is life after death. As I grow older in my years, I'm not sure certain how that life will be, or what transpires there. I don't know forsure there is a heaven, and I'm not real sure if I still believe in "heaven" the same as some of Christian counterparts do. However, this I do know for certain; what happens to us in the afterlife is not what we humans need to be worrying about. It is how we choose to live our life for today, what we do for the good of it, and ultimately how we choose to end our day. Too many people worry about the afterlife- that they forget to live in harmony with THIS life.
Some organs can survive temporarily upon death. You really need to define what you mean by death first. The death of the heart? The brain? The mind? If the brain dies then the mind dies too. The mind is not inseperable from the brain. Or did you mean your spirit? Then you would need to define what you mean by your spirit.
The Bible says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. What great hope! The minute I leave this body, I will be with Jesus! When my daughter died, knowing that she was then in the arms of Jesus, was such a comfort. I don't know how those who don't believe in Jesus Christ can go through the death of loved ones. It would be so hard not knowing where they are at.
It is hard not knowing anything. I would like to see them in the afterlife as anyone else. This does not make me decide a grouped belief that contradicts individualism out of fear. Belief should not be grouped or linked with fear. I would rather explore to what I don't know than to be content with assumptions to group my belief.
To many to list have written their story for others to read. They do not make themselves out to be someone special, they just say what they experienced and they have similarities and differences as to what happened to them.
Very interesting reading to say the least and none of them know each other.
Er...no...because you're dead! how can you live after death? someone keep drip feeding the make believe and we will be ok...we will live after death and we will be ok, when we die we can still get stuff done, so it's ok!
Seen as the reality we accept could be very easily an illusion, I will stick with the reality we accept with this disucssion. Life after death does not exist, unless you feel your "soul" will reawaken in someone else's brain. Scientifically and in the known world, it is impossible.
I do not believe in death. I believe in change. we do not stop "being". We just end being "here and now", then we begin being "where and when". We have to put away the tools and toys of this experience, and plan for the next one..if we want to.
Do you believe in the Summerland or something similar such as Tir Na Nog or Heaven, etc.? Do you also believe in reincarnation or a recycling of energy? What do you, as a Pagan, believe in as far as life after death?...
There is no afterlife, I believe that when we die that is it, and to be honest we are all in the same boat, so it doesn't bother me at all. The easter bunny would be a much more credible idea than a 'soul' floating up...
For the very many years I was in Church attendance, the Kingdom of God was always equated with Heaven. It was a future event that only those who believed in Jesus would see either when they died or were raptured, whilst...
I've read about many different theories about death and what happens. It is the main question that is in the back of everyone's mind. It's very difficult to picture it or to question the point of existence. The fact...
