Beyond Death

On one of the popular social discussion websites, a user asked what comes next after death. The answers varied all over the place. Here are a few of the more interesting ones:

  • Our energy moves on.
  • No need to fear.
  • Isn’t this reincarnation?
  • Nothing.
  • The great nothing.
  • You become fertilizer.

So what really does happen to us after we die physically?


Many of your religious and spiritual traditions tell you death is nothing to fear. And yet humans, nearly without exception, fear death. We would ask why do you fear death? It does not exist.

Beyond what you call death is only life. When a baby is born, it “comes to life.” Or does it? Where was it before birth?

As we ponder these questions, we want to assure you death is nothing. It’s an illusion, and nothing to fear. Beyond this physical life you will find not death, but only more life.  You are eternally alive. Yes, you change form. But you are eternal.

Many humans believe God or Goddess created humans in his or her likeness. Think about what that means. God is eternal. Therefore, you are eternal.

Yes, your physical form changes. But so too does a baby’s physical form change at birth. Birth is nothing to fear. Nor is the physical form change you call death.

You are eternal. You cannot die. Beyond death there is only life. Life is forever. Death is an illusion.

According to psychiatrist Brian Weiss, M.D., there is no death. We never die. So the question “What comes next?” is meaningless. Nothing comes next. We just go on living. Here’s Dr. Weiss talking with Oprah Winfrey:

      Thank you, Stephanie! It’s been many years now, and it’s still fun. 🙂

      All’s well here with us. I hope you and Doug are well and happy too in your (relatively) new home.

    Life is change and death the mirror to life , for life is both here and there. Through one door to another, through one life to another, from form to form. Everything exists, nothing perishes but all change and become more or less, depending on what you believe. Death is a door we go in and return once more. Like breath we are here and not here. When we dream, a portent of doorways so thus is death.

    Spring is here, kittens recently born. Two cats are sharing their small litters together. Life and death both are amazing. We are constantly changing so what’s to fear 🙂

    Been to the door, asked to stay. Seems I have something to accomplish not someone else’s choice but mine. The choice was and is always mine to step through or not.

    Brilliant piece, thank you
    love and hugs

      Thanks very much, Jeannie, for your wise comments.

      Love and hugs to you and the kittens!

    This writing reminds me of a time when I commented about many dying in a war to spirit & their comment was… “No child no- one died they just came home to us”.

    I’m not afraid of dying. I’m afraid of getting sick and all that that entails before I die.

    Thank you and have a wonderful weekend 🙂
