I always like to bring meaning to my writing, by finding explanations about different things in life. Sadly, when we talk about death it strikes the fear of god into us and into our hearts.
As a child I found the concept of death scary because nothing was ever explained and I was hidden from it, but as my spiritual beliefs began to blossom, understanding death didn’t seem so scary. That death is merely a continuation of a soul that has lived that continues to live in spirit.
But we must contemplate its true implications to understand what it means when we pass over. When we understand the soul and how death works, we will know what it means to understand life.
We have a physical body that is vitalised by the soul. When we die, the body separates from the soul and the soul continues to live on without the physical constraints of the body.
On this side of life as we continue to live our lives, our true character lies in the soul, and is the reason why it’s important we live and practice empathy, compassion, tolerance and basic selflessness, so those attributes will continue through the soul once we’ve passed over.
As long as we practice goodness and selflessness, it is logical to assume that upon death, we will ascend to a higher state after fulfilling our responsibilities this side of life. No substance truly disappears, it only changes form.
The spiritual life force that we’re all connected to, upon death changes from one form to another, when the body separates from the soul and the soul continues into the after world.
For those who transform their body into a vehicle for generosity, who nurture their soul, will continue to do so the other side of life. The soul is the vehicle towards a better life in the after world, therefore the imprint of the soul counts this side of life.
