I finally though I’d address your important question about ‘Life and Death’.
My answer will be fairly short, as it would require a complete book to answer it properly! But it was a brief question, so I’ll give you a brief answer. Well, its Sunday again, so this might be an appropriate day to answer it!
You basically asked if I believed in Life after Death, reincarnitation, etc. But basically you asked if I believed in Life after Death.
I have really no answer for you, other than to give my personal opinion. This is only based on what I’ve come to be taught, of course, and you are in no way obliged to accept it. There IS no answer to this Craig; the closest I can get to it is by saying that you must first start with Life; Life as it is. It is futile to try and understand where ‘life goes’, unless you can first appreciate (really appreciate) the fact that Life is already actually here. That is not meant to be some frivolous statement: Life is here already, if only some people could just see it. How do we know that? By the very fact that we are alive, surely.
The problem is, that so many people just take this fact for granted, and never appreciate Life until they are actually dying, or near the state we call ‘death’. But in reality, there is no ‘death’, Craig. That state of being that bought us all into existence, is just ‘there’, It just Is. Without that Being, none of us would be here – as we understand it – we came from It and we go to It. The problem doesn’t really lie with ‘human death’: the problem really is that most people cannot really appreciate the gift of Life that they already have!
If people could only wake up to that fact (not intellectually, but in reality) they would see that there is no ‘death’; there are only human conceptions of it. Life could not even come into existence unless there was Divine Intelligence behind it. Without that Intelligence, none of us would be here, and I couldn’t even be writing this!
Please forget reincarnation; I have really just answered this. It really amounts to the same thing!
Look at life first. Then the answers to ‘death’ might just come naturally.
