Very interesting and thank you very much for sharing part of what is in your book.
I do very much like your bottom line, that when we die, we are actually born. It would go with my thoughts on reincarnation, as well as that these
lives are stepping stones and learning processes to something bigger.
I know you say it can be great or horrible, but do you feel that we could be able to create what awaits us after death (in your case: birth)? Can we
create this reality/life/experience? If you mentioned your answer to this part already I apologize as I must have missed it. It has been a long day,
having to wake up at 130am to get ready for work on Black Friday. Thanks in advance and for what you have shared so far!!
The people who once were "alive" did not really change once they transitioned into their completed and whole selves. After all, we are what we create
of ourselves while in gestation. This means that there are as many predators on that side of the divide as there have ever been on this side of the
divide, with as many variations of what this ends up meaning for the average prey that wanders into that realm as there are people looking for
Knowledge is the only shield that the human being has against these threats, since eternal existence means eternal freedom or eternal subjugation,
depending on what the individual firmly believes to be true. In this realm, the authoritarian may have his/her value, since order and restriction
generally ends up preserving life and liberty when dealing with large concentrated masses of people who are vulnerable to injury, disease and mayhem.
In the informational realm, proximity isn't an issue, and neither is physical affliction, but that doesn't change the authoritarian leader's need to
dominate and control others. It also doesn't change the authoritarian follower's need to require his/her peers to get in line along with the rest of
"right thinking" folks.
In some situations, sadistic personalities take advantage of these types of people - especially the authoritarian follower - to configure their own
little versions of the traditional hell, where they are the Lord Satan, issuing the eternal damnation as they see fit. And why not? Some hapless
people firmly believe that they'll deserve no better than eternal suffering once they've crossed over, and there will be plenty of Satans there to
greet them when they've cleared the tunnel. Hell, they may even have a queue system set up to prevent fights over new arrivals. I imagine the scene at
the downtown LA Greyhound bus terminal, where the teenage runaway steps off the bus and into the clutches of a pimp whose number is up for the next
tragedy that arrives with a backpack and dreams of being the next Reality TV star, when I think of what awaits at the other end of the tunnel.
Like I said, human beings are what they create of themselves, and we already know what many of them are actively creating. A person who's expecting a
perfect loving white light to accept them into paradise is easy prey for a white light that's bright enough and the only light that's there, and while
it's not exactly what they expected, it's a white light, and it's there where it's supposed to be. They say :"Go to the light, so..."
Yeah, knowledge is pretty important when you consider the ramifications of ignorance in a realm where physical proximity doesn't serve as a buffer
against anything and there are no good or bad sides of town. The truth is that no one can physically dominate or restrict anyone in that realm unless
the dominated/restricted person accepts that domination or restriction. That said, ignorance can be how one is dominated, and rigidly held expectation
(faith, is another word for it) is the shield that can be turned into a weapon against the faithful. It's not pretty, but reality isn't pretty. It is
what it is.
What I've discovered is not much like the stuff that sits on the book shelves right now. There's good news and tough-to-deal-with news, but I didn't
show up to make people feel comfortable. I showed up to wake them up.
