I'm just going to speak directly from intuition here, so you can take it or leave it.
I'm not there yet. But I will be soon.
After dying, are we on a ride that we have no control over, or can we actually chose one path over another?
Free will or choice only have any relevance in and below 4th dimensional consciousness (time); in the 5th and 6th dimensions, every possible choice
and consequence exists simultaneously.
Death, with regard to consciousness, is the withdrawal from 3rd dimensional consciousness, so linear time and choices will cease to have any meaning.
This happens gradually in the process of dying, first your 4th dimensional awareness will expand, this is often described as one's life "flashing
before their eyes", one witnesses the entirety of their life's 4th dimensional timeline instantly.
As one passes through the 5th and 6th dimensions, they can experience literally anything. The 5th and 6th are the realms of potential, containing
every possible path that a 4th dimensional timeline could follow. It's hard to say what one might experience. I wouldn't say you have a conscious
choice of what you will experience, but those experiences will be made by your own consciousness. You'll see what needs to be seen.
Should I trust the ride or not?
Absolutely, so long as you trust yourself. If not, you may wish to make peace with yourself, or you may be in for an unpleasant experience. Either
way, it will be an eternity, but it'll be over before you know it.
If the light appears, can I chose to go elsewhere? I have a problem with an amorphous light.
That light is where you're going. Moving away from that light is often associated with the worst kind of pain and fear, the kind that rips at your
very soul. It's probably in your best interest to accept it.
Is God or Jesus able to manifest for the billions of souls, times a billion inhabited planets? Times a billion galaxies?
Yes. Times a billion universes. More than that, in fact. It's endlessly expanding.
How much control do we have soon after we die? I doubt that we have much control, but I hope I am wrong.
One simultaneously has no control, and full control. It really doesn't matter. If you reach a state of confusion while thinking about this, which
feels like your mind has gone numb and tingly, thats roughly what it feels like to have no/full control at once.
