Note to MODS: I had no clue where to put this. I trust you will place it where it needs to be, hopefully NOT in the trash bin.
What Happens When You Die?
I have often found myself bewildered by the mystery of death, dying and what happens after this human condition expires. There are many ideas and
theories that are believed to be the way it goes, some think you go to Heaven and some think Hell is the spot we land (if we are bad), while others
might have the notion there is reincarnation involved.
There have been many that have experienced what they refer to as "near death", where they are transported towards a "bright light" or perhaps a "dark
tunnel", given a glimpse into future memories to come or past memories to see again. They have reported to see relatives or loved ones, hearing a
voice asking them to choose which direction they want to go, or told they have things that need to be completed first.
You could not grow up on this planet since the year the movie came out, it shows up around the Holiday season, actually, there are 3 that come to
mind, but one of them is more pertinent to this conglomeration, you may even be able to guess which 3 movies I am referring to; 1) It's A Wonderful
Life, 2) Scrooge and 3) Miracle On 34th Street.
Clarence, Ghosts and Santa, these were the characters that drove the vehicle our George and Scrooge and Susan (little ms.walker) found themselves
wondering in, these were all based on fictional characters, but they all resonated because of the messages they shared with us.
One was about suicide and feeling worthless, one was about regret and forgiveness and one was about having faith and being disappointed from
expectations. They each had a lesson to be learned or 2 or 3; Humility, Vanity, Greed, Selfishness, Jealousy, Hatred and Love.
I changed my mind, All 3 of these movies are necessary to use in my answer to the question, "What Happens When We Die?". At least my theory of such
an event when it occurs. The reason I have decided to continue my own beliefs will be revealed along the way.
Semantics play a huge role in how each culture processes death, every religion has an ideology they use to profess their path to the afterlife, and
some individuals have their own ideas and theories that are completely different from what they have been led to believe.
I am one of those. I have experienced "near death" and "out of body" situations on more than one occasion and each and every time has been different,
not one was the same as the other, you my question the voracity or truthfulness of this statement. I have been through something very few people I
know have gone through 1 time and lived to talk about it, at least 9 separate times. That is 9 times that I have come close enough to "dying" as you
Either way, my version of the truth is very different from what I was taught as a young child and early adulthood. Still, I have not left the
building completely and yet, as a human, I have absolutely no proof, what happens when we actually complete the death process.
Here is what I do believe happens based on my actual experiences. There is a place we go. There is a change in our energy. Our emotions at the
moment play a role in what we see. Past, present and future are involved. Reality and perception change. Other energies present themselves in
So far 9 times and each time was completely different with the exception of the method and madness to the past, present and future. Mostly, it was
future progress and the path that would be traveled. It was in slow motion and it would reverse, it would stop and then start again, faster and then
reach a point; The point of no return, a choice made by me, my spiritual being, to go forward and complete the journey to the next destination, or
return to the place I needed to be, did I complete that, yet?
So far, that answer for me has been "No" each time, however, I do believe the next time I make that exit towards the door, it will be this journey
that has ended and a new one will begin, for now what exists for me is only the present. There is no fear about the next step. I have accomplished
as much as I could possibly do with this life, or have I? Not really, I still feel the need to learn more, absorb more and teach more. I do consider
myself a teacher of life, that what I have to offer is beneficial to someone and I like sharing.
