What is your exact believe do you have on life after death and how do you live life towards it
I engaged once in a discussion on life after death and I got to find out so many people and so many religions have different belief.i am just wondering what people there think and how they work towards achieveing it
According to Hindu religion there exists such a belief that it is only the body that is perished and the soul will remain. We believe there is life after death also. India's Supreme Court Judge (Rtd.) and a former Minister Mr V.R. Krishnaiyyer has wrote a book about it in detail.
According to the original teachings of the Buddha, what happens after the body dies does not matter for how it is best to live our lives. A monk came to the Buddha saying he was confused, and that he needed to know if reincarnation (a popular belief at the time) was true, or not.
The Buddha, instead of answering, asked him two questions:
If you knew that reincarnation was true, what would you do? The man answered that he would practice meditation diligently, and be as wise and compassionate as he could be, in hopes for a better life.
Then the Buddha asked, "and if you knew there was no afterlife?" The man replied, "Then I would practice meditation diligently, and be as wise and compassionate as he could be, because this is the only chance I have."
So, reincarnation or not, judgment at the end of this life, or not, it doesn't matter to me. I live each moment in balance and awareness, allowing as much Love and Wisdom to come through as I can.
Growing as a channel of Love and Wisdom creates the best life, whatever happens to the body, or to us.
I think its a quick cut to black, and so I try to avoid things like getting hit by buses or falling off of moving vehicles.
Even science says that matter can neither be created nor destroyed, so even if all that happens is I turn into mulch, I'm still around as mulch molecules, which at a very basic materialist level means eternal life. As mulch yes, but maybe I get sucked into a plant, then a bird, then an animal that eats birds...And so forth.
But that's not what I believe.
What I believe is that the energy that makes me 'me' is part of a force that does no harm, a loving, intelligent light that is eternal and expanding. You can call this any number of things, God being one of them, but there are many others.
So I believe we are all a part of that light and we shed our bodies at death and are absorbed back into it. I like Sid Kemp's answer a lot. Me, I would make the worst monk EVER, so my answer to the Buddha would be the compassion and meditation thing if reincarnation (or eternal life) was real, but if it was just this life only, I'd probably eat more, take more risks, travel more, but still be kind. I don't know if service would be as big of an honor if I thought I was just a pile of meat destined to be gone shortly. Maybe it would but if I'm honest I think, wow, I'm not that good a person...
On the other hand, if I know there's no escape and we are here forever in some sense (and this can be batted around until you fall over) and that we are all a part of this Divine Light, then it looks different. It looks like I'd better care about making life better for all sentient beings, not just me. Because the greatest pain that can be experienced is to be in the presence of this light and know I did not try my best to share it out, the comfort others.
My exact belief about life after death would be that there is life after death. I don't work towards achieving it. I am not ready to die yet. Although that isn't saying that I fear it, I don't. I just feel that I am still needed on this earth to accomplish my purpose. I have passed out once in my life and as the light grew dim, I had the most peaceful feeling that I was going to finally get some rest. I did wonder at that moment what would happen if I didn't wake up and didn't return to my children that night--they are my purpose.
I live as though this is all there is. Whatever will happen, will happen without me working towards it.
There is no life after death, not as we know it. Once the body dies the DNA will be freed to be uses by nature to create other forms of life. The only part of us that will exist after death is the abstract energy of the mind which we call the Spirit. All other senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, touch, taste) are qualities of the Soul. When the Soul(body) dies so will those senses. The mind will become free and limitless to the universe but we will be able to experience physical life by possession. Only the curious or evil Spirit will choose to reenter this reality by possession.
What I believe is that I am seeking the way to enlightenment for this life time. Whether or not I am succeeding will depend on how much I can learn while I am still living.
I am always in search of enlightenment where my guardian angel and spirits around me to guide.

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 that we are here is a miracle in itself, who says that some sort of afterlife isn't...

Are you worried about what happens after you die?I have two fears for when I die: I'll basically cease to exist, have no consciousness, etc. Or, that there is an afterlife and I'll learn the meaning of life, which could be devastating if I handled life wrong!

Is this all to life: we live, we reproduce, and we die?If we knew without a doubt that life continues after death, would it change how we treat each other?. By the way, is the transmutation of the caterpillar into a butterfly after death any hint to what might happen to us after death? If you think...
