The afterlife is the belief that an essential part of an individual’s identity, or the stream of consciousness, continues to manifest after the death of the physical body. ~ Wikipedia

So what do you believe? Do we simply cease to exist after our physical bodies die? Or does some part of us live forever? Is there such a thing as the afterlife?

One scientist, Dr. Sean Carroll, physics professor at California Institute of Technology, has this to say:

“Claims that some form of consciousness persists after our bodies die and decay into their constituent atoms face one huge, insuperable obstacle…within (the laws of physics)…there’s no way…for the information stored in our brains to persist after we die….there is clearly no way for the soul to survive death.” (Emphasis is mine.)

Other scientists, perhaps most notably, the well-known Dr. Raymond Moody, a medical doctor, have interviewed many people who’ve returned “from the dead” or experienced what’s often called a “near-death experience” (NDE). Dr. Moody, and other scientists believe NDEs are evidence for an afterlife.

It’s pretty unlikely these conflicting beliefs and perspectives will soon be reconciled. Here are some of Spirit’s thoughts.


Your consciousness creates and sustains your physical body. But it is not in your body. It is not your body. It is not even a part of your body. Rather, it is you, your essence. Call it what you will—soul, spirit, essence, etc.

Since consciousness is not in your body, nor a part of it, it does not die whenever your body appears to die. It is eternal. You are eternal. You are one with God.

As it says in your Bible (quoting Jeshua), “I and my Father are one.”1/ So too are you one with your Father. You cannot die.

1/ The Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 30.

Here is a short, fascinating discussion with Deepak Chopra. The interviewer asks him, “Is there life after death?” I found his answer fascinating. I think you will too.
