posticon What Happens When You Die?

Posted on   by

Arguably, one of humanity’s greatest questions—and greatest fears—is What happens when you die? Does anyone really know? Is there anything to fear?

Spirit

Those are great questions. Are there any good answers? Definitely, yes!

As Johnny said, our title is arguably the most-asked question among humans. So the first thing we want to address today is the myth of death. For there is no death. Most humans move through their lives fearing something that does not even exist!

We realize what you call “death” seems to be a real experience.Read more

posticon Compassion and Life’s Other Side

Posted on   by

In a recent post we talked about a neighbor who died by euthanasia.

Berna and I ran into her widower the other day. He was, understandably, sad and sorely missing his wife. They’d been together 63 years. And their son had died many years ago when he was just 7 years old.

Berna, a deeply compassionate woman, spoke with him for a few minutes. He did not speak English. So he and Berna spoke in Dutch. I didn’t understand their conversation, but she told me about it later.Read more

posticon Death and Life

Posted on   by

One of the most discussed (and most dreaded) topics, especially in today’s world, is death. Berna and I actually enjoy talking about it. If we understand what death really is, there’s nothing to fear.

Spirit

As Johnny and Berna said, death is nothing to fear. Most humans do not see that. The conventional view is, first, there is life. And then second, inevitably, there is death.

We’ve said this many times over many years. But we’ll say it again: There is no death.Read more

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?

Spirit

Many of your religious and spiritual traditions tell you death is nothing to fear. And yet humans, nearly without exception, fear death.Read more

posticon Going Home

Posted on   by

I’m not a country music fan. But there is one hauntingly beautiful song I first heard years ago. The title was “Bringing Mary Home.”

The song tells the story of a man driving down a lonely country road on a dark and stormy night. A little girl suddenly shows up in his headlights. He stops and she gets in the back seat. She explains, “My name is Mary. Please won’t you take me home?”

He did take her home. But when they arrived at her house, she had vanished.Read more
