well i don't know for certain whether there is life after death, none of us do. I do believe in life after death. I believe in reincarnation as well. The main reason i believe in reincarnation is because i have memories that don't seem to fit this lifetime. But my my beliefs are mine and yours are yours. No ones right and no ones wrong, because we will never know what the truth is until we die.
I once; a long time ago, read a series of books written by Jane Adams, called the SETH Series. This is her concept as best as I can remember it.
the person that we perceive ourself to be, just might be but one fragment of a higher consciousness. And that higher self might have many fragments (similar to ourselves yet different)existing in numerous time continuum's. And when this physical body dies this fragment returns to a collective SELF taking with it our life's experiences and lessons. In this manner our higher consciousness is constantly evolving into a wiser and better (for lack of a better word) Person. Thus the need to become better people in this life, for the betterment of our higher self. For instance, suppose that in this life we are an abusive husband. In another life we would be an abused wife. Rich in one and poor in another, etc. etc.
And when we die, we return to our source.
If this were true it would not have to be affirming nor denying the existence of one God, yet could explain a lot of the misconceptions that humanity is plagued with.
At the very least I found these books to be very interesting It has been 30 years since I read those books. Maybe I need to read them again?
The Egyptians had a strong beleive in the afterlife so much so on their walls they had it mapped out . they must have known something I beleive, perhaps it is something we all know but it is not on the physical level.
I have to say that I do realize that there are invisible presences that are alive but whether they are the dead or other entities pretending to be the dead, I don't know. My experience with them is that they don't know what I don't know. In other words, I think they're just telepathic! They throw back at me what they get from me.
And, there, just when you though I was totally sane, I go and kill al the fun by admitting that I think there are more forms of life on this planet than we currently acknowledge...
I personally DO believe death is not final. Seems quite a limited view to think that it is. That view comes from the scientific approach that basically all that we can see and feel is all there is. That wouldn't really cover death anyway! I can easily claim (and science can't really disagree) that all death does is take you away to another reality of some kind, which is totally unknowable by science.
Also, this is hardly proof, but don't you think it's weird that we can conceive of life after death? I mean, hard-core atheists will say, well, that's like some kind of defence mechanism, so we don't think about death too much. But how come no 'other animal' sits there thinking about death and the afterlife?! The concept has never crossed an animal's mind, EVER, I am sure of it! So where do WE get it from?
I believe, well no, I know personally, that death is not final. Death of the physical body is just that, the body that houses us. I'm clairaudient and have conversations regularly with people in spirit, on a daily basis. The consciousness is fully intact and emotions are the same within us, if anything the emotions are more intense. Which isn't surprising really under the circumstances of finding yourself in a new reality you may not have expected. I've had a fair number speak to me about their physical body life beliefs, they believed that once they died that was it and it was quite a shock to find that it wasn't over, life continues just in a different way, a different stage. I know some people will not believe in this, it's just my own truth I'm expressing, not preaching or saying .....I am right! My personal opinion.
Have you sought out professional help with this problem?
The consciousness requires a living functioning brain to exist. That's why people go into comas when their brain is not functioning properly. Emotions require a living body to exist considering emotions are just biochemical reactions within the body.
Yes, I read that all the time from believers who have nothing to substantiate their rightness.
The children of israel (OT) believed in a resurrection although much of the spiritual facts were not presented to them as they were under a different dispensation; the dispensation of carnal flesh. When christ arrived with the spiritual dispensation much of heaven and spiritual things was revealed as this is a spiritual dispensation.
Christ rose from the dead So shall we all:
those in Christ; to rewards those not in Christ; to wrath
rewards means a continuation for the people of God wrath means not a continuation. (which is kind of ironic because the atheist will get exactly what they expect, nothingness. and the christian will get exactly what they expect) oh the wisdom of God. I can be emailed
Beelzedad you make me smile, thanks for that. Well it must be worse than I thought as I have also seen them, felt them and had things moved in front of me, seen lots of unexplainable things too. I think my daughter must need help too, and my father who has similar to me. It's funny as one of the repeated pleas is to help people know that life does continue because it'll make for an easier passing. You obviously won't have this problem as you'll just cease to exist. lol! I am happy for you to disagree with me as we all have our own beliefs or not as the case may be. It matters little to me what you think to be honest, I'm smiling as I write this because I find it amusing. What I find strange is that when a non believer communicates with a believer it is ALWAYS the non believer who is personally attacking like you. I wonder why you feel that need? I am happy for you to have different views to me, yet you see someone like me as some sort of challenge, weird. Oh and your comment about my, I am right, you know I was saying quite the opposite so don't play with my words please, you know exactly what I meant.
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?...
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...
Here is an idea I've been pondering lately--it may be a symptom of growing older, now that I'm only about a year and a half from turning 70, and therefore knowing that my life is at least half or more over, given the...
