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.
