What is death? Do we reincarnate? Do we go to heaven or hell? Does nothing happen after we die? Do we become eternal void? Before I start this article, I want to say that this is only my point of view.
Like I said in many of my articles everything in the universe is made of energy, including humans obviously. This is also the first law of the universe: Law of Oneness. As we know, humans are made of 3 layers: the body, the mind and the soul. Now like Einstein said: “Energy cannot be destroyed or created, it can only be changed from one form to another.” When you look it that way, we don’t die. Actually, we were never born, and we will never die.
I will try to make it easier with this metaphor: You have to see life like a soap bubble.
The physical part of the bubble, what you can see, is like your body. What is inside the soap bubble is you. When the body can’t contain the energy anymore, the energy leaves the body. The same thing happens when the soap bubble explodes. The energy that was inside becomes one with everything else.
The Native Americans also understood that. I want to share this poem with you:
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
Does heaven and hell exist ? In my opinion, no. These 2 things are human constructs. It was made to control the crowd. If heaven is a better place than earth, why don’t we directly go to heaven? What if earth is heaven and we are destroying it?
Do we reincarnate? I will write an article on this topic another day!
When you understand that we don’t die, fear of death goes away. When you don’t fear death anymore, naturally all your fears go away. We are here on this planet for a limited time, so enjoy this experience as much as you can!
