Thought for the day (life and what follows your final hour) Friday

Updated on September 3, 2016
The fantastic journey ahead
The fantastic journey ahead
Your spirit is free to go and do as you wish
Your spirit is free to go and do as you wish
Could this be the entrance to your Hell
Could this be the entrance to your Hell

Today perhaps we should give a little thought to our existence and what may follow.

As I approach the final chapters of my life I find I think a little more about what is yet to come rather than what has been. Age and ill health has slowed me but every day I discover something new and wonderful.

Don't think of this as morbid thoughts, but rather think that you are approaching an exciting new adventure, you are about to experience new things, places and feelings that no one on earth will have ever experienced before.

People often ponder is there anything to follow earthly life ? Many are happy that they will enter the Kingdom of Heaven; some are terrified that their past deeds will condemn them to their idea of Hell. Others think there is nothing - you are born and you die, nothing more nothing less.

As a scientist I know that all life forms are complex physiological and chemical organisms, our bodies function through chemical reactions all controlled by a network of minute electrical impulses generated by a barely understood fantastic powerhouse - the brain. If anyone doubts the existence of a higher power then they should just study life, man or animal. The most complex computers in the world are but a toy compared to workings of the body and brain.

Let me suggest the following to you, when we eventually die the physical body ceases to function; it has no further use and is no more than a husk to be blown on the wind. Our brain, however, or rather the electrical impulses that made us who we are and the repository of all that make us as we are, does not die it becomes an energy mass, it becomes free to move where and when it wishes. It is invisible, has no mass and takes up no space but the neurones continue to interact possibly even having the ability to do so with those who have previously passed over or perhaps are still living.

Hah ! Far-fetched nonsense you may say and I cannot prove otherwise to you. But as I have become older I fear the final journey less and less, don't misunderstand me, I've no wish to go anywhere yet, there is still too many things I want to do. To quote an overused phrase "there are only two certainties in life and that is taxes and death" Well, I've paid my taxes and now I want the promise of my new fantastic adventure.

Some have said that if there is really a heaven what do you do if you have loved several times?

Well, we no longer exist in a physical form we can simultaneously divide our time and feelings with each or all of our loved ones and they with us. There will be no jealousy, bitterness, conflict, pain or old age, our loved ones will appear to us exactly as we desire, we will be able to enjoy those beautiful times in perpetuity. If we wish it may even be possible for our energy to be granted the ability to enter a new life form and to experience physical form again.

Try to live your mortal life in the same way as you would visualise your ethereal form, in peace, happiness and contentment.

Do you fear the afterlife ?

      Dear CrisPp

      You are fortunate indeed to be comfortable with the idea of returning to the creator. I wish you well in this life and the next.

      kind regards Peter

      This is so thought provoking...you left me thinking. However, I do believe that I am going back to my creator and no where else. At least, I tell myself. :)

      For now, let's enjoy life to the fullest.

      Peace~

      Thank you teaches12345

      Everyone has their own view and who is to say which concept is right. Of one thing I am sure, there is an afterlife.

      kind regards Peter

      Your message is one that makes you think. Most of us have pondered this question at sometime during our lives, some more than others. Myself, I believe in the afterlife through the grace of God's plan for us in Christ. I enjoyed your post.

      Dear tirelesstraveler,

      Amen to that - wouldn't it be fun if we all enjoyed them ?

      kind regards Peter

      Dear Blueheron,

      Thanks for your full thoughts. I'm sure there are as many ideas as stars in the sky. The great thing is it is an unanswerable question which can never be known, but personally I would be very disappointed if there was nothing (which is a rather stupid statement as how would I know !)

      kind regards Peter

      Peter, I guess I am somewhere between you and Diogenes. The Albert Jay Nock quote that comes to mind is: "How could anyone possibly know anything about it?" Yet I do tend to believe that we persist after the death of the body.I don't know it for a fact. I don't see how anyone could.

      The idea that I am entertaining at present is that there are two great forces in the universe: The force that tends toward organization and life, and the force of entropy. Life, or even organized systems like solar systems, is an expression of this creative will--to build something out of chaos, to have interactions--which implies awareness and "seeing." It seems to me that it is an expression of the creative will that builds the human body (and all other perceived things) out of chaos. I think we could say that the part of ourselves that survives bodily dissolution is the same creative will that brought it into being.

      I think a person could say that the life and death cycles that we see in nature--and maybe even the fact that planets revolve around the sun--is because of the constant creative interaction between the force that tends towards entropy and the force that is the active will towards the manifestation of organized forms. We, as pieces of that will, built the bodies we occupy and exist separate from them, and can rebuild another. Death and dissolution occurs because the active will to create exists in relationship to the force of entropy, so that everything (including us) cycles through creation and dissolution.

      I don't know that this is true. Just ponderings....

      Dear Bob,

      Also thank you for your comment.

      Your thoughts are similar to many others, it can only be one of the great unsolved mysteries of creation.

      kind regards Peter

      Dear Sue,

      Thank you for your comment.

      The brain communicates within itself and other parts of the body by a series of electrical impulses. These impulses are very similar to radio waves (to put it in its simplest form) although within the confines of the brain they will use neuron pathways. The signal strength is minute and so is the energy required to power it. In a live body it obtains the power required from the chemical reactions taking place. When the body is dead the contents of the brain (our soul ?) detaches itself and obtains the power required from the static energy within the world that surrounds it.

      Now we have reached the point that I can only theorise about. The physical capability is there but how your energy decides to communicate or not will remain an unprovable mystery.

      kind regards Peter

      When you say brain, I think you meant mind. Personally, I believe it all ends when we die except for the fact that all the substance which is "us" returns to the matter bank to be used, time and time again, as the building blocks of everything

      Best Regards

      Bob

      Very thought provoking hub Peter. I wonder though how the brain can communicate when we are dead? Certainly some people are pronounced brain dead if they have experienced some trauma to the brain or maybe you mean that the brain impulses are still there but undetectable by ICU machinery. I do like the idea of being able to be with ALL our old loves at the same time without jealousy, pain or conflict.
