I go for the heaven and hell , not because I'm religious , I just don't think all the people who say they have been are lying .

You must have watched I survived beyond and back , if you haven't watched it , dig in because it's a great programme .


Uh..no one who has died has come back to say anything. No one. You are confusing clinical death (which is simply a machine reading) and actual death. Physicians don't confuse the two.

This is a subject that weighs heavy on me, and I think about often. I would really hope there is a higher plane of existence, or ghostly world we will transport to. Lights out, and nothing afterwords is what scares the hell out of me.


Yes, that is the scariest one. However, when it happens, we wont know it. But the thought of lights out and then nothing is quite scary to ponder.


Hi.

Once we die fear as an emotion is no longer required. Fear is a biological survival response that is only useful in this earthly life.

Regarding Jesus, He did not say that we all go to Heaven happy ever after. In the Bible it tells us that our souls are held in a place until the Resurrection of all the dead;

Daniel 12: "Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. 3 Those who are wise[a] will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. 4 But you, Daniel, roll up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge.”

Revelation tell us exactly the same thing. The former earth will pass away and a new earth will be created. Jesus says that there will be no need for marriage even because we "will be like the angels".

Jesus says that He would have told us so if it was not the case. Also, it appears there is a lake of fire of eternal torment for the Beast, False Prophet and that those who have the Mark of The Beast will be weeping and wailing and gnashing teeth outside Zion. A Book of Life is mentioned, too, where all those who are written in it will rise to everlasting life.

Sheol (Hades) is the world of the dead. Gehenna is a metaphor for the rubbish pit/heap. Heaven is God's domain. Humans don't go there. Revelation says that God will come and dwell with people in the new earth.

This is actual Christian doctrine. I don't know where the very common misunderstanding of going to Heaven comes from, but Jesus never spoke of us residing there.

Some interesting observations, though, Jesus said to one of the people crucified with Him "Today you will join me in Paradise". To others He said that it is a blinking of an eye for us before we are awakened. To others He said "I have gone to prepare a place".



Not one word of the Bible was written by anyone who witnessed Jesus saying anything. You may as well be quoting Frodo.

So let me see if I understand this.

Jesus is hanging on the cross and he has these conversations with all the others being crucified with him.

Seriously, were they crucified in a circle or was he a contortionist. It sounds like it belongs in a Monty Python script.

With all the criminals he must have had around him, he didn't once say, "Yo! Your going to hell!"

Jeez! Lol.

Let's see. No you don't understand it.

I was merely reciting some of the statements made by Jesus about what He understood to happen after death and what the OT Prophet Daniel had to say.

He did not say all those things when on the Cross, silly! Yes, people did talk while being crucified and still do (in Syria). It takes a long time to die with this style of execution, sometimes more than 24 hours. That is why it was used because it is so long winded and painful a torment.

I notice how you say "Jeez" as an exclamation in your post. That is slang for "Jesus". Obviously for it to be coming from you on an unconscious level means that somewhere in your psyche you are not as irreverent as your post here.

Ciao, Dude!

So your saying that you believe my #1 theory above? That nothing happens?

Care to elaborate?


A lot happens before you die because you lived. Nothing and I mean absolutely nothing happens when you are dead. Just gone!!!!!

I also think it would be your first theory.

I see no evidence of your other theory's, because they remain just that, theory's.

We live on through the DNA in our children, that is all I believe anyway.

Make up your mind! Who is being silly.

This is the problem with these dogmatic beliefs.

You say one thing and then completely go in the opposite direction.

Your religious beliefs have no more value (and no less) than anyone elses here and yet you do believe that yours are the right ones and everyone else is wrong.

Because of a real life event that I know is real, I have an insight into death that I find comforting. I know with absolute certainty that there is life after death, not many have this.

People have come back from the dead to tell you what happens after you die heres one account of what happens:




www.crystalclarity.com...
"You have read in the scriptures," Master went on, "that God encased the human soul successively in three bodies-the idea, or causal, body; the subtle astral body, seat of man's mental and emotional natures; and the gross physical body. On earth a man is equipped with his physical senses. An astral being works with his consciousness and feelings and a body made of lifetrons.2 A causal-bodied being remains in the blissful realm of ideas. My work is with those astral beings who are preparing to enter the causal world."

"Adorable Master, please tell me more about the astral cosmos." Though I had slightly relaxed my embrace at Sri Yukteswar's request, my arms were still around him. Treasure beyond all treasures, my guru who had laughed at death to reach me!

"There are many astral planets, teeming with astral beings," Master began. "The inhabitants use astral planes, or masses of light, to travel from one planet to another, faster than electricity and radioactive energies.

"The astral universe, made of various subtle vibrations of light and color, is hundreds of times larger than the material cosmos. The entire physical creation hangs like a little solid basket under the huge luminous balloon of the astral sphere. Just as many physical suns and stars roam in space, so there are also countless astral solar and stellar systems. Their planets have astral suns and moons, more beautiful than the physical ones. The astral luminaries resemble the aurora borealis-the sunny astral aurora being more dazzling than the mild-rayed moon-aurora. The astral day and night are longer than those of earth.

"The astral world is infinitely beautiful, clean, pure, and orderly. There are no dead planets or barren lands. The terrestrial blemishes-weeds, bacteria, insects, snakes-are absent. Unlike the variable climates and seasons of the earth, the astral planets maintain the even temperature of an eternal spring, with occasional luminous white snow and rain of many-colored lights. Astral planets abound in opal lakes and bright seas and rainbow rivers.

"The ordinary astral universe-not the subtler astral heaven of Hiranyaloka-is peopled with millions of astral beings who have come, more or less recently, from the earth, and also with myriads of fairies, mermaids, fishes, animals, goblins, gnomes, demigods and spirits, all residing on different astral planets in accordance with karmic qualifications. Various spheric mansions or vibratory regions are provided for good and evil spirits. Good ones can travel freely, but the evil spirits are confined to limited zones. In the same way that human beings live on the surface of the earth, worms inside the soil, fish in water, and birds in air, so astral beings of different grades are assigned to suitable vibratory quarters.

"Among the fallen dark angels expelled from other worlds, friction and war take place with lifetronic bombs or mental mantric3 vibratory rays. These beings dwell in the gloom-drenched regions of the lower astral cosmos, working out their evil karma.

"In the vast realms above the dark astral prison, all is shining and beautiful. The astral cosmos is more naturally attuned than the earth to the divine will and plan of perfection. Every astral object is manifested primarily by the will of God, and partially by the will-call of astral beings. They possess the power of modifying or enhancing the grace and form of anything already created by the Lord. He has given His astral children the freedom and privilege of changing or improving at will the astral cosmos. On earth a solid must be transformed into liquid or other form through natural or chemical processes, but astral solids are changed into astral liquids, gases, or energy solely and instantly by the will of the inhabitants.

"The earth is dark with warfare and murder in the sea, land, and air," my guru continued, "but the astral realms know a happy harmony and equality. Astral beings dematerialize or materialize their forms at will. Flowers or fish or animals can metamorphose themselves, for a time, into astral men. All astral beings are free to assume any form, and can easily commune together. No fixed, definite, natural law hems them round-any astral tree, for example, can be successfully asked to produce an astral mango or other desired fruit, flower, or indeed any other object. Certain karmic restrictions are present, but there are no distinctions in the astral world about desirability of various forms. Everything is vibrant with God's creative light.

"No one is born of woman; offspring are materialized by astral beings through the help of their cosmic will into specially patterned, astrally condensed forms. The recently physically disembodied being arrives in an astral family through invitation, drawn by similar mental and spiritual tendencies.

"The astral body is not subject to cold or heat or other natural conditions. The anatomy includes an astral brain, or the thousand-petaled lotus of light, and six awakened centers in the sushumna, or astral cerebro-spinal axis. The heart draws cosmic energy as well as light from the astral brain, and pumps it to the astral nerves and body cells, or lifetrons. Astral beings can affect their bodies by lifetronic force or by mantric vibrations.

"The astral body is an exact counterpart of the last physical form. Astral beings retain the same appearance which they possessed in youth in their previous earthly sojourn; occasionally an astral being chooses, like myself, to retain his old age appearance." Master, emanating the very essence of youth, chuckled merrily.

"Unlike the spacial, three-dimensional physical world cognized only by the five senses, the astral spheres are visible to the all-inclusive sixth sense-intuition," Sri Yukteswar went on. "By sheer intuitional feeling, all astral beings see, hear, smell, taste, and touch. They possess three eyes, two of which are partly closed. The third and chief astral eye, vertically placed on the forehead, is open. Astral beings have all the outer sensory organs-ears, eyes, nose, tongue, and skin-but they employ the intuitional sense to experience sensations through any part of the body; they can see through the ear, or nose, or skin. They are able to hear through the eyes or tongue, and can taste through the ears or skin, and so forth.4

"Man's physical body is exposed to countless dangers, and is easily hurt or maimed; the ethereal astral body may occasionally be cut or bruised but is healed at once by mere willing."

"Gurudeva, are all astral persons beautiful?"

"Beauty in the astral world is known to be a spiritual quality, and not an outward conformation," Sri Yukteswar replied. "Astral beings therefore attach little importance to facial features. They have the privilege, however, of costuming themselves at will with new, colorful, astrally materialized bodies. Just as worldly men don new array for gala events, so astral beings find occasions to bedeck themselves in specially designed forms.

Why not read the accounts of the people that have actually died? I bet most all of your questions can be answered there.

There are many, many books, websites, blogs, newsletters and NDE research papers that say otherwise.

Many people have died, and then come back several hours after being pronounced dead. One woman I read about raised up off the operating table and scared the hell out of the guys about to perform her autopsy.

But no matter what you think, the answer will be known to us all one day. Nobody lives forever no matter how much people try to convince themselves that maybe they will be the first to do so.

This dude came back with a whole new body made of astral particles, just like Jesus FTW!



Sitting on my bed in the Bombay hotel at three o'clock in the afternoon of June 19, 1936-one week after the vision of Krishna-I was roused from my meditation by a beatific light. Before my open and astonished eyes, the whole room was transformed into a strange world, the sunlight transmuted into supernal splendor.

Waves of rapture engulfed me as I beheld the flesh and blood form of Sri Yukteswar!

"My son!" Master spoke tenderly, on his face an angel-bewitching smile.

For the first time in my life I did not kneel at his feet in greeting but instantly advanced to gather him hungrily in my arms. Moment of moments! The anguish of past months was toll I counted weightless against the torrential bliss now descending.

"Master mine, beloved of my heart, why did you leave me?" I was incoherent in an excess of joy. "Why did you let me go to the Kumbha Mela? How bitterly have I blamed myself for leaving you!"

"I did not want to interfere with your happy anticipation of seeing the pilgrimage spot where first I met Babaji. I left you only for a little while; am I not with you again?"

"But is it you, Master, the same Lion of God? Are you wearing a body like the one I buried beneath the cruel Puri sands?"

"Yes, my child, I am the same. This is a flesh and blood body. Though I see it as ethereal, to your sight it is physical. From the cosmic atoms I created an entirely new body, exactly like that cosmic-dream physical body which you laid beneath the dream-sands at Puri in your dream-world. I am in truth resurrected-not on earth but on an astral planet. Its inhabitants are better able than earthly humanity to meet my lofty standards. There you and your exalted loved ones shall someday come to be with me."

"Deathless guru, tell me more!"

Master gave a quick, mirthful chuckle. "Please, dear one," he said, "won't you relax your hold a little?"

"Only a little!" I had been embracing him with an octopus grip. I could detect the same faint, fragrant, natural odor which had been characteristic of his body before. The thrilling touch of his divine flesh still persists around the inner sides of my arms and in my palms whenever I recall those glorious hours.

"As prophets are sent on earth to help men work out their physical karma, so I have been directed by God to serve on an astral planet as a savior," Sri Yukteswar explained. "It is called Hiranyaloka or 'Illumined Astral Planet.' There I am aiding advanced beings to rid themselves of astral karma and thus attain liberation from astral rebirths. The dwellers on Hiranyaloka are highly developed spiritually; all of them had acquired, in their last earth-incarnation, the meditation-given power of consciously leaving their physical bodies at death. No one can enter Hiranyaloka unless he has passed on earth beyond the state of sabikalpa samadhi into the higher state of nirbikalpa samadhi. 1

"The Hiranyaloka inhabitants have already passed through the ordinary astral spheres, where nearly all beings from earth must go at death; there they worked out many seeds of their past actions in the astral worlds. None but advanced beings can perform such redemptive work effectually in the astral worlds. Then, in order to free their souls more fully from the cocoon of karmic traces lodged in their astral bodies, these higher beings were drawn by cosmic law to be reborn with new astral bodies on Hiranyaloka, the astral sun or heaven, where I have resurrected to help them. There are also highly advanced beings on Hiranyaloka who have come from the superior, subtler, causal world."

My mind was now in such perfect attunement with my guru's that he was conveying his word-pictures to me partly by speech and partly by thought-transference. I was thus quickly receiving his idea-tabloids.

He was not DEAD. If he had been DEAD, he would not now be alive. He may have been clinically dead and had a near-death experience. I suggest that you discuss this with your physician who can explain the difference to you.

As the OP said, your response "begs the question."
But it may be as good as any answer.
Personally, I'm kinda old, but I'm tempted toward changing religions to that one with a few dozen virgins waiting.

For those seriously interested in this dilemma, I suggest that they dig heavily into the reports from those that have explored to some depth the literature about the use of '___'. It is not a recreational substance and has allowed some experiencers to vastly extend their concepts of what life, death and other factors in the Universe have in store. (I'm not a user of it.)

The same thing that happens when you blow out a candle or turn off a light switch.

The processes your body has been creating for your entire life stop, the light goes out, and that's it.

Realising this has helped me appreciate life more than any hopeful fairytale ever could.
