Does anyone ever think about how it will be in any real terms? I have a bit of a preoccupation with this at the moment that I m trying to work through. I believe in God but find it hard to imagine'everlasting life' Any thoughts?

Dee1.

Sogyal Rinpoche wrote a book called "The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying".

In it he describes in some detail the processes of dying, death itself and what happens thereafter. If true, then, I suspect that a lot of the experience he describes will depend upon our acculturation and indoctrination. How we will interpret the 'bright light' will therefore vary between individual's religious beliefs, etc.

He claims that high Lamas can remember not only past lives but also the experiences that they have in the 'Bardo', that state between death and life. The collective experience of these advanced beings forms the basis of his book. If you are open minded enough I recommend reading it.

Yes Free - if we live long enough death will eventually come as a friend.

Personally I think the afterlke wont' be much different than the one we have now. Except that we won't have to argue if there is a life after death because we'll already know that. otherwise we'll just be ourselves without the pain and the sorrow.

dee1,

Kind of strange. Another "coincidence" within the hour......

Looked on line to refer you to John Edward to maybe help you find some answers and find this:

John Edward - Cross Country

Oddly enough - premieres today, 9-6-08 - tonight actually - 10/9 C

(OK - these "coincidences" are starting to get a little creepy.....)

Well it IS the greatest adventure. An adventure into the unknown. A new place to explore. A new state of being to get accustomed with. Questions we have now answered, new questions to ponder.

If in fact, there is nothing when we die, then it's all over. We won't know anything, we won't suffer kuz we won't be conscious of anything, so if that's the case, then it's all good also.

Death is the grand adventure of this lifetime. IMO
