Where do you think you're going when you die?

Recommended Posts

Sometimes I'm scared because I'm afraid when I die I'll become just. . . . .nothing - that I'll no longer. . . . exist. If I really meditate on that for any amount of time it scares me.

 

Then other times I wonder if maybe there is another life that we go to where we DO exist again. . . . maybe we live on another planet and we're real and alive again.

 

But I'm not sure either way. Whatdya think guys? :confused:

And while I'm at it and before I go to bed, what about this Heaven thing? If there really is a "Heaven", is it an interactive kind of place or just a state of being or something else?

I believe we've all done the best we could with what we had to work with. When we leave this mortal realm, if we CAN'T be reunited with those we loved the most that went before us---then I don't want to go anywhere.

 

Just let the worms eat me.

 

It ain't so bad.

I know I'm going to heaven, because (1) I believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins so we can all go to heaven and (2) I've been to hell, Satan has my last name and gets a check from me each month.

Seriously, God did not let me survive Cancer for no reason.

I haven't had any important humans in my life die yet so I can't really wrap my brain around that. I just know I don't like the feeling I get when I think I might not "BE" anymore someday. :confused:

But FBX2, what do you think Heaven is? Do you think it's a real "place".....something you can touch.....? Do you think you start a second life there or it's just a nebulous vacuum that we read about in the bible?

 

I have no idea what I think it is, but I wonder about it more often than I wish sometimes.

Honestly, I think Heaven is beyond our mere mortal understanding.

Well, I don't believe that.

 

Any god that would send his creation to hell deserves no worship. I don't deal with terrorists in any venue or on any terms.

 

As far as having been to hell---you & me have had it damn easy. There are plenty who would put us to shame.

 

When we're done, we're done. We're just not that important.

I don't even think it much matters what happens. This is a concern of conscious reality. I accept that my conscious life as I know it will have ended, and what that happens with my life's energy, if anything, will be in some kind of manifestation to which I simply cannot understand in this life and so should not concern myself over silly fears of a very confusing sense of reality. In short, my answer is nothing and everything all at the same time which is no time at all: forever, which is never.

Worrying about an eventuality over which we have no control is pointless.

werx 4 me...

 

We all know no one gets out alive, and no one has come back to tell us where we go. So either they don't think its worth telling us about, or there's no way back. Either way, we take our chances.:cool:

My dad died 4x and he told me ALL about it.

 

When we're done, we're just done. Nothing supernatural about it.

 

But you believe what you'd like :cool:

 

We're just not that important, and no god is gonna intervene for your dead ass.

Sorry to interject, but I have experienced too many things firsthand to believe that there is not something out there after we die.

 

I have lived in several documented "haunted" houses. I have seen with my own eyes, as well as witnesses around me, books fly off of shelves and ghosts. I have heard the sounds of past times pressing against today. I have felt the chills, and heat, of activity. I have smelled the scent of death. All of this without any reasonable explanation to be found.

 

I'm not saying any of this to brag or carry on, but I say this because I know there is something beyond this life. I believe it was Einstein (I think...I might be wrong on this), who figured out that energy cannot be created nor destroyed. It can be harnessed and used, but not created nor destroyed.

 

I am a Christian, and I know where I'm trying to get to. My physical remains may remain within the earth, but my soul shall soar....

 

Sorry for the heaviness...

 

Brandon

I don't think it's the end when your physical body dies.

You just proceed to another place.

Hopefully, a pleasant place.

I actually do think that when we die there is nothing.

 

It affects me the opposite of SGV - I find the thought of oblivion quite comforting. All our problems in this life just don't matter in the long run. We'll just blink out like a snuffed out candle and nothing will exist for us ever again.

 

Now that's what I call eternal rest.

 

On the other hand - if there is an after-life I hope it comes with guitars and we can all play like Tommy Emmanuel. :D

Heavy stuff... I ain't no expert:

 

I believe that when I kick the bucket the only thing that physically remains are the atoms that made up my body, all of the junk that I've managed to hoard, and any genetic material that I happen to pass on to unsuspecting offspring.

 

I believe that my "spirit" remains as the influence that I've had on other people and things during my brief existence.

 

Due to these beliefs, I don't believe in "clean-slate" forgiveness. Once you do something, the effect of that action exists and will remain as part of your legacy.

My thoughts exactly.

 

Spend energy changing what you CAN change, so that when you're road kill you've actually contributed to the advancement of our species. I think death will be a relief, because living is hard work.

The whole issue over fear of the unknown/fear of dying/what happens after is a byproduct of centuries of christian brainwashing which has permeated our culture.

Superstition-nothing more or less.This is from those good people who taught you that a virgin was screwed by a ghost,remained a virgin and produced a child.Hmm.

If Einsteins theory is correct then we will still be around-as molecules of matter with no consciousness.

All the matter in the universe has always existed and always will-we truly were born of stars.

If you want to make yourself useful after death get buried and have a tree planted above you so you can fertilise it.

Is this actually what Einstein postulated? I wasn't familiar with this theory. Interesting.
