I think, or like to believe, or prefer to believe, that when we die, our conscious continues on a higher plane, just like others here on the thread
have stated. I think this is the growing spiritualism that most people embrace these days.
My belief is that our current conscious continues on, but when our physical body dies, we return to a higher plane, where we are able to communicate
with out higher conscious. We can communicate with out higher conscious while we are physically living, but the signal is distorted.
I think we have three levels of consciousness. the trinity seems to be such a communal concept I think it is probably a natural state. To me, we
live her in the physical plane, and so our conscious exits in the physical plane with our bodies. We also have an emotional conscious, which is our
spirit. Then we have an intellectual conscious which is our soul. I think that only our soul has a chance at immortality.
Our physical conscious is too absorbed by the physical world, to communicate with our higher conscious, it is tied tightly to our physical sense of
the world, which is an amazing place. Life is great thing to enjoy and to learn from.
Our spirit is more closing tied to our higher intellectual soul, but still tied to the physical world. Our spirit gives us our drive in life, our
passion, it enables us to enjoy life. However, our spirit can be harmed, it can be broken, and it can be killed. This is why we have to look out for
our emotional well being.
Our soul deals with further more distant, less recognizable areas of this world that our physical conscious has trouble grasping. The guidance
provided by our higher conscious is usually passed down through instincts and emotions. It is our soul that guides us through the higher plane.
Physical life as we know it is very finite. Maybe in the next few generations they will unlock the secret to aging, and our grandchildren, or maybe
even our children might be able to live several hundred years. I have heard many times that life is too short, but I didn't really get that until I
hit my forties. It seemed like I was just getting my act together, only to have to start facing the long slow deterioration of my body.
The spirit, I feel, lives through several physical incarnations, and may live as long as the soul, but is vulnerable. . I could say more, but that
is the important part.
Our soul is here on this physical plane for a purpose, which I believe it to learn and grow. In this physical plane is where we experiment with life.
We live these lives with the purpose of growing into a better self on the higher plane. I don't think we die and go to heaven, I think we die and
go to a higher plane where life is more complicated, but of course also has far greater possibilities.
Of course, there is always the possibility that when you die physically, your conscious dies, the memories are wiped, and the only thing left is the
deeds you left behind.
Carpe Diem, is my new years resolution.
