Why No Nudity in The Afterlife?

    I've been doing lots of reading on aspects of the afterlife and several times the websites made it a point to say that once we are spirits we are immediately clothed in robes of various colors that never get dirty. Roberta, what's with the elders' hangup on being nude in the afterlife? What about people who have practiced nudism/naturism on earth all their lives and want to continue? Will they be forced to wear robes against their wills because other spirits are prudes or something? Can you elaborate a little on this please, Roberta?

    Roberta - to whom you addressed your questions - will answer in due course but for now I'll take a stab......

    Firstly a question from me, so I can understand what you've 'heard', where did you read that (quote) "the elders" have a hangup about being nude? (compared with the section you read about colored clothes)

    The answer to your second question about former naturists is that they won't be forced to do anything they don't WANT to do. If they want their bits to be visible then they can. If they don't WANT to wear clothes they will not be forced to do so.

    If they feel comfortable being nude, and if those they want to be with also feel comfortable with their being nude, then so be it. Not so very different from one's personal situation in private in this world.

    One thing to remember, though, is that like attracts like. The nude individual won't be able to force other individuals to be with him any more than a nude individual can do that in this world. Each has freewill.

    Well, Jack, so what's with your hangup on being nude in the afterlife? Hmmm... ;-)?

    I agree with Mac's response. NOTHING is forced against our will there. But it does seem that we all choose to be clothed and very rarely if ever are unclothed or partially unclothed, so let's now speculate about why. Well, presumably the human body simply doesn't interest us there as it does here, in part because we all know that we have been both genders in other lifetimes and anyway the bodies we have there altogether lack a sex drive. We seem actually to not want to bother with bodies there, so those at higher vibrations tend to dispense with them altogether unless they are teaching in a lower level. Mikey Morgan has come to some of my meetings with my spirit guides, and he looks like a ball of light. So my answer would be that bodies bore us, that since we can dress as we like we tend to enjoy dressing in various ways once we arrive; then later on, when we wear spirit robes, we take pride in that as well. It really is all good!!

    To mac first:
    No, I never read that the elders have a hangup about sex. That is my surmise taking in all that I have read, and like most of us around here the amount I've read is voluminous so I can't point to any specific references. Hundreds of NDE accounts I have read always mention the elders who appear to them are dressed in robes of different colors. It's always robes, never suits or Roman togas or kilts. Just an observation. I myself am NOT a nudist but I don't see anything wrong with it. It's just that in all the thousands of accounts I have been exposed to none have mentioned nudism. Given the percentage of people who practice nudism here you'd think at least one or two accounts would show up.

    To Roberta:
    Well, nudism has nothing to do with interest in the bodies of those around them. It's just the philosophy that unclothed is better than clothed. And again it has nothing to do with sex drive since according to the values of nudism/naturism sex isn't even supposed to on the minds of nudists. It's almost like a religious belief and most nudists have been raised in this lifestyle apart from heir regular daily activities like going to work and school. But Roberta, I do recall your story of the soldier who needed to have sex with a volunteer in order to believe he was still a whole man so it seems that the idea of sex and having relations does indeed go on for some after death. I have stated in another thread that being one with the entire universe and everyone in it has considerably less meaning for me than being one with ONE partner who would love me as much as I loved them and having all the trappings of a romantic lovelife i.e. nice home, children, sexual relations etc. That for me is the esseence of something to look forward to in the afterlife. If the other comes later, fine. But I'd rather start with the lovelife first.

    I didn't write anything about sex - just nudity, the theme of you questions.




    If you focus on near death experience accounts you'll hear what folk say about their, well, near-death experiences. BUT they're not what is experienced after corporeal death and such accounts can be misleading and appear to have misled you. What account details do match corporeal-death accounts is in the appearance of coloured robes. I don't attach any importance to clothing styles but there seems to be no reason that you couldn't fashion a kilt
    or a toga should you really WANT such a garb. My guess is that it simply has no importance but as former incarnates - perhaps many times over - it's surely understandable that we're accustomed and comfortable wearing clothing. Beautiful robes are surely something folk would enjoy wearing, clothes of colours that reflect their spiritual 'status', not something to brag about but to simply be enjoyed by the wearer and the observers. Those who don't enjoy them won't adopt them.


    I see nudism as no more than an affectation but there's nothing wrong with nudism. But maybe in the etheric world folk find other aspects to be infinely more interesting and important than their appearing nude - even assuming our etheric bodies retain the detailed anatomy of a human body.

    You could just as easily argue that individuals who have lived in hot, tropical rain forests for example may not wish to wear robe-style or any other kind of clothing and for them it's not an affectation but a way of life. You don't hear about them either. Or Innuit who have spent most of their lives swaddled in furs with comparatively little of their bodies ever exposed - what might be their preference after their passing?
