Death is an unsolved mystery.
I find it hard to believe that those who have literally "gotten away with murder", will not pay a consequence, in the afterlife. Like, how can
someone get a pardon, for slaughtering millions of people? You tellin me, you wouldn't like to see the "rulers of our world" (past, present and
future) burn in a pool of fire, for eternity; while we live the good life??? Shooooot, that would be SWEET!
It's not that easy.
The problem here is that you cannot apply human concepts to "what happens in the afterlife".
WHAT IS "GOOD" - WHAT IS "EVIL"?
Why should there be "someone" "in the afterlife" who is punishing or pardoning souls based on what they did in physical life.
Ex, people exist who have no respect for animals. They kill and slaughter millions of fish, cattle, bugs, whatever.
Are those people "punished"? Who decides what's right and what's not?
Is a fisherman punished because he may have killed his wife in a rage...but he's fine having fished and killed a million of fish during in his
I DO believe there are "consequences" but they are far from our understanding of that "someone" is judging or punishing based on human
The punishment is more a learning thing which everyone must figure out BY THEMSELVES. This is the key..this is the main reason for our physical
existence in the first place.
(My personal opinion is that the ultimate wisdom and ultimate lesson to learn is to having to forfeit all egotistical desires...to see the OTHER
person (or other animal) as more important BEFORE the own desires. The "ego" must be entirely sacrificed and given up and it must be replaced by
love and respect. It is as simple as that).
When this NOT happens, which is obviously the case with murderers etc...you simply haven't learned. There is no reason for another entity/being to
"punish" you, your punishment that you didn't advance and learn is already enough.
It is my understanding that there are in fact various "levels" of maturity and advancement of our true souls and the goal might be to advance as a
spiritual soul, possibly to be able to enter new stages of consciousness/reality at some point when "enlightenment" is achieved.
What's the point of the "hell idea" where people would be punished "for eternity"? Who would gain anything from that? What would be the purpose?
I don't see any purpose with the concept of judgement/punishment since it would in-fact hinder a soul to learn and to advance. Obviously, the idea is
silly and just too human to assume that endless pain "in hell" would provide a benefit for anyone. It would be as idiotic as....say...someone wants
to become a doctor and fails constantly with tests on the way there...and then his parents would in addition slap him and punish him violently because
he failed...like the fact he didn't pass the test is not already a problem/punishment enough....
