when I die I go "somewhere" -- so the question of God is always rooted in this question of what is "around the corner"
what happens when the body "stops" ??
I believe that reincarnation is the way in which the cycle "loops" and, as such, there is no actual death but rather a continual "re-alignment"
I also don't see consciousness as being "housed within" the brain, hence "captured" within the physical body
consciousness is, basically, an alignment with/through a pervasive etheric energy, God and all prima materia one thing, with different flavors
seen through a prism, a holograph of which we often are ill placed to fully see
when you stop seeing Death as "going somewhere"
and realize you're both "here and there" all at once
then your world will change
and your fear of Death will stop
no one wants to Die because the party's happening here, right now
I don't want to stop -- somebody truly rockn may walk through the DOOR smile emoticon
but there is no "other" place, nor "other" state of being
life and death are in alignment no different -- simply light and dark sides of a golden moon
when you see that you have one foot in the Spirit world right now and Life / Death are tape loops not either / or
then you will feel more content more in love
more . . . everything
truth . . . there is no "there"
it is ALL within
