    I presume expectation means a belief. My belief is as the Bible states, 'the dead are consious of nothing at all-----the rememberence of them is forgotton' When your dead your life is ended. In the Bible Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the death, if Lazarus had gone anywhere other than being dead, then Jesus would not have said, 'Lazarus our friend has gone to rest.' He did not say Heaven, did not say anywhere, in fact when he resurrected Lazarus he had been dead for 4 days.

    The Apostle Paul believed that to be absent from the body was to be present with the Lord. So as a believer, I do believe the same.  Also, when Jesus hung on the cross between the two theives and the one repented and believed in Him, Jesus said, "Today you shall be with me in Paradise." If Jesus said it, I believe it! Of course there is another destination for those who don't repent and believe!

    This is all based on the assumption that the Bible is right and that the soul moves on.  When I have the proof that my soul will go on I will consider what to expect.  For right now I'm having enough trouble with life.

    My expectation is that I believe there is an afterlife and we are only occupying this physical plane for a finite period of time.  I am Christian so I do believe there is a Heaven but unlike the literal interpretations of the Bible, I think that Heaven is simply a connection of my life force to the universe and its Creator.  It's a sense of unity with all living things and that creates a feeling of completeness.

    I believe that by becoming human our spirits accept the responsibility from our Creator or God to live this life to its fullest and to accept our end whenever it comes.  This is not to say we should not do what we can to live as long as possible, but rather we should not terminate life by our own hand. 

    I think we accept a living contract with God or the Creator to accept our life as part of our Creator's existence and only he or she can decide when it is complete.  That said, violence, murder and suicide are violations of that contract and I think that creates a separation from this ultimate destiny to be one with all of Creation and God.

    the soul does have life every lasting it is eternal, that is something that you can not change.

    We leave this plane, as we know it and call it death, and we will not remember how that happens or how we get back here.

    I believe the above bible stories in quoting them are being taken out of context to a certain point, in that, that was for a particular person and time.

    We will discuss with our creator how best to evolve and help others and ourself best and it will be done.  We stay in eternity or exist on other planes of learning, for a time and do work there or come back to earth as we know it.
