I Believe in Life after Death
So many of us have stopped seeing the world as the beautiful place it really is. Our words and thoughts are filled with negativity. Having lost our Spiritual roots, we see death as final and tragic and something to be feared. It is all a matter of perspective. Yes there is pain, and the pain is real, but we can still heal our pain through the power of the belief – the belief that we have the ability to create and live a life of peace and joy.
I recently attended a Life Celebration for a ninety year old friend who had lived a full and rich life. As in so many funerals, thoughts turned to a hoped for afterlife. We all wished that he would fulfill his dream to rejoin the love of his life, his wife of sixty-two years. I know that beliefs in a heaven and hell are based on Christian mythology, but myths are just stories that reveal a hidden truth. I believe that this body is mortal but we also have an essence that is pure energy. We are spiritual beings cloaked in a human body. Since this energy can never be lost, I believe it is simply transformed into pure spirit.
I believe that death is not to be feared. There is no hell. I believe that there is an afterlife or another life, and this life will be free of pain and suffering. I believe that the power of belief is a gift from the source. It is the essence of faith and hope. It is the essence of out being. It is the shoulder we can lean on when life seems too hard to bear.
I Believe In Life after Death
Knowing all there is to know and being all there is to be,
It is now time to celebrate the last day of the last life
That I will ever live.
However, there are still these last few years to savor,
The thrill of sensing all that my eyes can see,
And hearing all my ears can hear.
And as I caress the substance of all my hands can touch,
My soul transforms all these gifts of my senses
Into feelings that expand into ecstasy.
As my souls captures the joys of this divine present,
It molds this ever expanding divine source of energy
Into a shape I know will last forever.
