It's very sad but some people thrive on conflict, drama. I know quite a lot of people who are like this, it just fuels their ego. Whether it happens in the after-life I'm not so sure. Maybe in the lower-levels. Looking forward to Carols and Mikey's answer on this.Jeana,
I'm sure Carol and Mikey will be along to answer, but in the meantime -- may I ask why you think Mikey (or anyone) would be bored without pain, conflict, and drama?? I find that an odd stance. I would be thrilled to have none of those things in my life or on the earth now (and certainly the best times in life don't have any of those things), and even more thrilled (assuming there is an afterlife) to have an eternal existence without them!
Hi Jeana,Hi Carol and Mikey,
I have a question… Has Mikey ever felt bored there (because there’s no pain, conflict and drama in the afterlife)?
Hi Baob,Hi Carol and Mikey,
Jeana's question on #959 triggers mine question:
Afterlife life is not like our physical world under which is the illusion of time. We have to take action constantly to materialize our thought, while afterlife is past, current and future all happen together under "now". They have mental work even busier than us on the earth. Is my understanding correct?
Hi Fins up,Hi Carol and Mikey. It seems our desire to achieve is still with us in the afterlife. Does everyone want to progress to higher levels of the afterlife once there? Thanks again for your answers.
Hi Snowboarder 27,Hey Carol & Mikey,
Individuals that have reached enlightenment often speak about completely losing their sense of self along the way, meaning it feels like nobody is there and there is no longer any self-reflection happening. I find this concept to be the only scary part of progressing on the spiritual path. My question is does Mikey have any sense of self in the afterlife or does this process of self-reflection or self-consciousness only pertain to the ego? If he feels that his sense of self is still intact then does this feeling of self eventually fall away at the celestial level in place of the universal omnipresent self?
