    Do you want to die at all?

    What will be your choice after death, hell or heaven?

    I already know once absent the body, present with Jesus!  I am not afraid to die at all as, in my case, it could be any moment, (well, just like anyone else), but since I am a Christian, I believe, yes, we die from this physical body and then live eternity in either heaven or hell.  I know I would not want to live forever here on this planet, as this is not our true home, as this world is temporal and is pasing away.  Interesting question.

    I don't mean to be rude, but who will answer 'hell'? And what kind of immature people still believe in silly things like heaven & hell? Hope no offense is taken. I do think about dying every day because at present I'm watching my country being massacred. And if it were only my country, there would be hope. But there has been a meticulous operation going on for the past 10 years at least, with surgical percision to turn the world into a totalitarian rule. Although I do believe in the divine power of God, the heaven & hell part is inexistant, but to answer your question, I would definitely not go to hell since I always try to serve the people I come in contact with. Why else live?

      Hell and heaven may be here itself. But it may look for symbolically and the perception of the concerned person is looked for honestly. As i prefer to be honest in what I respond really. Thanks

      You say you hope no offense is taken but your words, "What kind of immature people still believe in silly things like heaven and hell?" That statement in itself insults all believers by calling them immature and their beliefs silly.

      Garifalia, I understand your pain. Please read my answer above to see how similar pain would make me glad to go to hell, if I could help. May Greece and all nations be free. Thank you for your good works.

      Dear duffsmom,
      I too am a believer but am at a point in life where I realize what the essence of God is and to know better than to believe in man-made 'heaven & hell', which were formed so that the uneducated people could better understand. Sorry

    'Do you want to die at all?' is a rather naive question.  The life which we are will leave our physical bodies behind at some stage.  No thing or nothing last forever.

    Heaven or hell?   Surely we will be the ones to make it one or the other.  We create our own heaven's and hells - and the myriad states between these two extremes - in our minds all the time.  Why should it be any different when we leave Planet Earth.

    I realize, of course, that not all people believe in an ongoing life or, life after death, as it is sometimes referred to.  That, it would seem is their choice, and I feel a little sad for them.  Still, so much more joy for them when they do realize they were wrong.

    As for me, I'm convinced I will be going to 'heaven,' whatever that might be.

      We may die when we live also as we may be hurt beyond death that we may wish death might have been a better option. The situation on earth is no better then hell and we some time have to go through worse then hell before death. Best wishes to ytou

    I will choose Heaven of course, but my belief is that I choose it before I die. Dying is no longer the time for choosing. I utilize my time here and now to invest for my eternity.

    We are born into a world knowing that one day we will die. There is nothing on this planet that lives which can escape death. It is a cycle of life. I am not sure if I believe in heaven or hell but I do believe that life changes forms upon death. I have always believed that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. Unless someone's health or livelyhood is being attacked it is hard for me to see someone visualizing death as an option. I don't believe that I am afraid of it but I am still having fun and would like to hang around for a while.

    I believe no one wants to die.

    We do not die in spirit though our physical bodies will return back to earth.

    I am seeking to learn the way of enlightenment where we no longer need to live in human form but in spirits.

    Our physical self is just like a hosting place where we are here to learn more towards our target of how to achieve enlightenment.

    Id rather stay on earth than go to heaven.

    In heaven if everything is perfect, then nothing is.

    if we dont have to work for everything then we will feel no happiness when achieving what we want.
    I feel it would get tedious after a while, so id rather stay alive for ever, or live another life

      Try to imagine that you have a terminal illness and your days are numbered.  It is hard to imagine, yet it is when your instinct for survival kicks in.  If it is any consolation, I know the feeling.

    No, but I think most people do reach an age where they accept that death will come and at that point accept death on its own terms.

    I am sure I will cling to every moment I can get in this life, but death does not frighten me. We will all find out what it is when we get there.

    Heaven, I believe all of the people who accepted Jesus as Lord of their life will go there....I hold to the beliefs of the Roman Catholic church and know that all of us who have done what I mentioned will go there....We will have rewards from God. Lots of people are accepting other ways of salvation however our Bible says that no other way but Jesus, Father Son and Holy Spirit will take us to that eternal place.
    None of us want to die, however it will happen to all of us.

    There are really four questions here.

    1. During this life, I sometimes want to die. It has been so painful, both emotionally and physically, that I wanted it to end. But I decided many years ago that this is not my choice to make. Also, how do I know that suffering ends with bodily death? Yet I do know that living people can heal. So I have decided to live and create joy.

    2. During this life, I accept that the life of the body is limited, and that the body will die. Does that mean that I will die? No, whatever I am, I'm not just a body.

    3. When we die, do we have choices? Do we continue to exist? If we have choices, are we looking at eternal heaven and/or hell? Reincarnation? Purgatory? A cessation of existence? Union with the Divine and a cessation of separate existence? Who knows?

    4. If it were a choice of Heaven or Hell, which would I pick? My answer here is: I believe in a loving God who would not create an eternal Hell. If there is a hell, I plan to go down there and bring everyone up to Heaven, and be the last man out, like a fireman rescuing children from a burning building.

    I do not think I could reply with all honesty, yet shall try. Good fortune shinned upon  me some time back - '78. The jest - car crash, ambulance, paramedics, and humorously jumper cables were used. The question sought has been answered for this individual since it seems already so, want is not in the formula. The question I arise to each morning is simply 'how to live today.'

    As far as the second question this answer is odd for sure. I think, yet have no belief, they are one in the same, especially since there is to my knowledge not any definitive answer for hell as an is.

    ThompsonPenposted 5 years ago

    so.....I wrote this huge long response and I just happened to re-read the question before I hit "submit answer"....I read "Do you want to DIET at all". Ha ha!

    Part of me does in the sense that I am so curious as to what is to come. I think that in the moment, all my instincts will be telling me to do something about it, and I will be freaking out. Those survival instincts are pretty strong. However, I think also that I will accept it in the final last moments and I will be curious. I think I will have a "Ok, Here we go, pay attention, this is only going to happen once"  mentality, and I look forward to the experience - in due time. I'm not going to accelerate it smile
    I have a lot of dreams where I die in a plane. I have a phobia. I am terrified. I hyperventilate, cry, shake, talk whatever I can to whoever is sitting next to me to distract me - all of it. I fly at least twice a year. This isn't a rare event. I've been flying every year since I was 18 month old. As a result, it's a subject of my dreams a lot. And I do die in them. Every single time, the last moment is my curiosity which overrides the fear of what is to come.
    I have my theories. I personally believe in reincarnation. I think that there is some time spent reflecting on lessons learned during this life. I'm also open to the option of heaven and hell. I won't pretend I know anything for sure.
    It is a fascinating subject to me.

    I don't think of dying too much, but I do think in the afterdeath. In that point of view, I'm very afraid to seize to exist. To disappear.... to stop existing forever and ever and ever and ever.. eternity is a long time

    This is a very interesting question. As a very empathic individual, I feel very, very deeply and have difficulty at times keeping any type of barrier over my heart. I remember as a child telling my mom that a mistake was made and that god sent me to the wrong world. Boy, did I freak her out! My parents never felt terribly comfortable talking about death around me after that as I would talk very openly about trying to "go home" so that this mistake could be cleared up. As an adult, I still feel this way occasionally, but I am a bit better at adapting to this world. I still have immense difficulty because of all the suffering but I hang on as I know in some way it is a gift. 

    I plan to come back as a tree!

      Hi YoginiJoy - Boy, do I know how you feel. In the novel "A Wizard of Mars," author Diane Duane introduces the idea of souls that make a wrong turn and end up on the wrong planet. I've always felt that way! Still reconciling to a human life today!

    I think that everyone at some point in their life has experienced wanting to die.  Whether it is due to enormous physical or emotional pain we want to leave our physical beings thinking it is the only way left to remove that pain (which is never the case although I have thought so on a number of occasions)

    Sometimes the unknown of what lies ahead or what we have imagined in our minds could not possibly be close to the suffering we are experiencing here on earth. The problem is it isn't our decision to make, just take a look at some of those who have attempted it and failed.

    At one point when we delve into self reflection, forgiveness, our spiritual sides (no matter what our beliefs), and realize that our past doesn't have to be our future we begin to know  peace, realizing that death of our physical bodies is nothing more than a part of a plan or process.  This not only releases any feelings of wanting to die, it gives a sense of well being and no matter what your destiny is (heaven or hell) it is not something to be afraid of.

    Don't want to die but definitely don't want to go to hell. I don't know if hell or heaven exist but I do know thanks to science that the brain floods with DMT when we experience near death experience or die. DMT is an tryptamine and a psychedelic that all humans produce endogenously, naturally when their born, dream, and when they die.
