The Afterlife

I never really watched Netflix before Covid, but this isolation has me with plenty of time on my hands to watch something other than the news because that’s too chaotic and depressing to me. Because I don’t really go anywhere these days, there’s more downtime in my life. So…

I binge watched The Good Place on Netflix. While I won’t ruin it in case you’re interested in watching it (because it is 4 seasons long), I will say that it was one of those thought-provoking, in an easy way, types of series. Have you seen it?

So my question to you is:

Do you believe in an afterlife?

What do you believe happens once your heart stops beating and you’re dead?

Are you someone who believes in Heaven/Hell/Purgatory?

Do you believe in reincarnation?

Do you believe that it all just ends and there is no afterlife?

Since I’ve never clinically died and come back to tell about my experiences, I only have what I think may be the next chapter in my head. And I’m wondering what yours is?

    I don’t know. I consider all of these theories to be valid, but who knows which it is, or if it’s any of them. Interesting to think about though

    I remember searching for meaning after the death of my sister. I found a book about near death experiences and it bridged (for me) science and faith. It was written by Dr. Eben Alexander, and the book is called “Proof of Heaven”. I suppose we’ll never know until it’s time, but the book was life affirming for me.

    I believe everything is happening now. That we are all one. You and I…we are just two different versions on “me”. I am eternal and divine.
    Death will just be another transition.

    Our linear, one at a time, limited view of life is just that. Very limited.

    My Dad died from a heart attack and was revived 5 times.
    He said it was like going to sleep. He didn’t feel anything, including all of that pounding on his chest!
    He didn’t see anything or anyone, he was just gone.
    I’d like to think there is something after we die. Reincarnation sounds interesting also.
    But I’m skeptical of it all. Just like my Dad experienced, I think it’s just lights out.
    I try to live like this life is all I get, but like everyone I waste time and don’t do all the things I should.

      I think it’s not so much as wasting time as in resting…and life school is difficult because it is so challenging, especially nowadays.
      Thank you for sharing about your Dad. I’ve not known anyone who ‘came back’ so iI appreciate you telling me this story.
      I’d like to think there’s more to the afterlife and I do believe that we can choose to reincarnate. But who knows. I guess we won’t know until it’s our time.
      I hope you’re doing ok. If you need a friend, I’m here. Just email me.

  5. I feel as if I’ve already been here before. I from a very young age discovered my gut feeling and every time I followed it and not my brain or even heart I had what I for many years chalked up to dumb luck. Today I think it has little to do with luck and more to do with i have already been here before. I’ve played this game but I have a feeling in those previous games I failed or missed something.
