Do you believe in an afterlife?
No, Brother AP, I do not believe in an afterlife, nor do I believe in a god.
Belief is for people too scared, uncertain and unenlightened to KNOW.
I KNOW this life is not the first, and not the last. I KNOW that God, The Creator, The Bodiless Intelligence exists. I KNOW my Ancestors are observing intently and expecting great things from me and our people.
Why do you ask, Brother? Do you still live a life of belief, Brother?
Stop believing - start knowing.
Let me word this carefully. I don't think that there is life after death, I think that when your physical brain dies you lose consciousness, permanently. I 'believe' in GOD though.
Living physically is merely existing.
Without your spirit you are dead!
You were a spirit before you were a body.
Yes there is an afterlife because spirits don't die they transcend.
Is your spirit responsible for your being conscious? You can give someone drugs or certain gases (or hit them hard enough) to make them lose consciousness, those drugs/gas (or whatever means) affect the brain and the brain is responsible for consciousness. Aside from when you dream, when you sleep you're unconscious because your brain is resting.
Don't take this personally, I'm just debating.
Im not religious so I dont believe in the heavenly concept I do believe our spirits(life force) will leave this shell(our body) and possibly pass onto another realm, where... I dont know!...I dont think the spirit dies though,But physically we will be gone yes
Your brain never rests unless you're physically dead.
There are five stages of sleep.
During rem is where your spiritual consciousness takes complete control.
who is God?
if I may add on...........
Life is an Universal equation, just as the Binary opposites of everything in existance......"as above so below"
For every Male star there is a Female star, for every Sun there is a Moon....(just a hint to my previous ? as I know I am late to this convo)
some have Astral Projected and lost conciousness but where not dead...proof of which I am still here and this has happened to me many times!
There was a man In India, who they were about to bury after 3 days of not moving or according to them breathing until he woke up or snapped out of his current mental state and he was still mentally sound!
what I'm saying is the more you open yourself to the Universe, the more that will be revealed to you from a higher plane of existance!
