Why the after life probably isn't true as far as I can tell.

    There is no such place as 'The Kingdom' and a kingdom is a kingdom only when a king is reigning in it. Using those words suggests religious conditioning and in 'real life' such notions mean little.

    Spirit guide and teacher 'Silver Birch' (and many others I feel sure) have spoken of the very special value of life here in this particular physical dimension. So what if it is "scenery" that we're experiencing? Craig Hogan's views are interesting but not necessarily definitive. If we mortals were truly living in a scene from some greater performance why would we take any notice of anything that any other actor had to tell us? Any individual might be experiencing the same constraints on their understanding that any other nortal would. How could we tell?

    Just a few points to ponder, eh? ;)

    We've wandered off-topic somewhat but what the heck! :D

    As I was writing my last posting I was watching a DVD of 'American Beauty'. A great movie, of course, but also with some interesting - and very relevant - words in the last couple of minutes as Kevin Spacey (yes our Kevin Spacey) reflects on his life as it flashes by him as he dies.

    Take a listen to those words if you have the DVD. :)

    better still:

    Lester (Kevin Spacey) looks back at us; his eyes are lifeless, but he's smiling the same slight smile. He's been shot dead through the back of his head.....

    He says as a voice-over: "I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die."

    Scene shifts and we're FLYING across a white blanket of clouds.

    He then says: "First of all, that one second isn't a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time...For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars...And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined my street...Or my grandmother's hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper...And the first time I saw my cousin Tony's brand new Firebird..."

    Lester goes on as scenes from his early life fade in and out: "I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me... but it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and it's too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst...
    ..and then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life...
    You have no idea what I'm talking about, I'm sure. But don't worry.....You will someday."


    neat, huh? and apt.....

    I agree with Mac. I have been alive forever and so has every other person who I know.
