Is There Life After Death?
I was listening to spiritual teacher Dr. Wayne Dyer talk on his weekly radio program this week about grief.
A caller to the program was asking him about her grief over the recent passing of her father and some of the regrets she assumed he had and her longing to connect with him again.
Dr Dyer said “We don’t know about this business called death so sometimes we assume death is nothingness, emptiness or a void” that a deceased person slips into. Dr Dyer posed the question “Is he in a worse place?” meaning than the place he was at here on earth. “If you believe in life after death or this place called heaven, then you know you will see your departed again.”
He went on to share that death is a natural part of life, but the “more spiritual you become this whole concept of death changes.” He used an example that the nature of the universe is birth to death and we are all changing, we don’t have the same body at 40 as we did when we were 3. Eventually we leave this body.
Dr Dyer suggested that if on your spiritual path you understand this natural order of things and that there are no accidents in the universe, we are all born and die exactly when we are supposed to than you will eliminate the doubt of where the deceased has gone and your grieving will be gone.
“Grief is about our ego and the sadness for our loss” but if the person who died is truly in a beautiful place than we grieve for ourselves.”
We do feel great heartache following the death of a loved one, I believe that is part of this human experience. But what I think Dr Dyer is saying, is that when we look at death from a spiritual perspective than we can find peace in the idea of death.
I found these ideas worth sharing with you and by no means am I suggesting you adopt the same beliefs. My goal as always is to share information and ideas that we all can benefit from. Death has certainly taught me about life and I ultimately I am true to my personal and spiritual beliefs and I hope you are as well. At the same time, I am open to experience new ideas and I hope you are too…when you are ready.
