What Happens When I Die?

In order to answer the question, “What happens when I die?” I feel it is important to take a look at something a bit less speculative and that is the question of what happens when we live.

There is no way to understand death if you don’t know what life is. What happens between the moment you take your first breath and the moment you draw your very last?

Who is it that is looking out through your eyes?

Is it not the same quality of awareness that existed right before you read these words? Is that quality of awareness not the same quality that existed yesterday and the day before?

And that awareness, the pure state of awareness was there before you could form words or even knew your name. It is independent of personal history, of labels, of nationality of ethnicity of religion of political orientation or even a gender. This is the essential self. And the awareness of this self, even if momentary, is what is often referred to as “Self Realization”.

The essential self is not contained within the boundaries of worldly identification, although it plays in those fields.

The essential self is not limited in perception by the five senses, although it enjoys experiencing them.

The self that is eternal is not limited by space and time, although it uses space and time to creatively express its essence.

The Realized Self came from nowhere and is going nowhere, but may choose different manifestations perhaps throughout the birth-life continuum.

The brain that tells the lungs to breathe will die with the body, but the Awareness that animates the organ called the brain is eternal.

You are not your thoughts. You are not your story. You are not your body.

Experience your thoughts, experience your story, experience your body, as none of it will last.

That which experiences remains constant. We can call that constant the “Self” – the real self and not that which masquerades as you.

So when you ask the question, “What happens when I die?” I would have to ask you a question in return…

Who is asking? 

Peace,

Eric Allen Bell

    …You are not alone. Could it ever be that an Infinite Source Creator would manifest as only one planet, and only one people and then be finished? Many on earth believe that humans are the ultimate creation but earth’s beautiful peoples are actually standing on the bottom rung of a very long ladder. You are now being given the opportunity to move to a higher rung, should you choose. Creation is an ongoing expression of the Creator.

    Be aware that you have been taught much that is false with regard to who you are and who we are. There is only One, but infinite manifestations of that One omnipresent consciousness.

    We watch you, we understand you, and we see your struggles for we too have evolved. Not quite as you have, but many of us have had lives on earth also and many of you are originally from other planets. We have the experience and the technology to offer our enlightened help at this powerful time. Earth is a difficult school and you who evolve through the earth schools, graduate as powerful and enlightened beings because you have awakened in spite of heavy third dimensional energy. Know and remember this–you have chosen to be here. There is free will for all, no one has forced anyone to be on earth, especially at this time.

    If humans could accept the fact that there is no end to a life that is actually Divine life, then they would understand more how evolution happens. Life is not a quick stay on earth, have a bit of fun, and the die; it is a process that happens over eons of time. You are as “old as God and as young as each new day” as said by the western mystic Joel S. Goldsmith. Hold that dear ones, hold to the truth that you can never die, like it or not, as much as you may wish to at times. You are here by choice for the long haul. Whether or not you choose to drag your awakening out for many more lifetimes, is your choice. there is never condemnation or judgement as all are moving forward at the pace they choose.

    You have been given an opportunity to be on earth at this most powerful time and to shift into the higher fifth dimensional energies with Gaia should you choose. Those of you reading this have chosen already, but do not expect your friends and family to make the same choice. Never try to force others into believing as you do, for they may not yet be ready. Force is a tool of the dark, an ego expression; the belief that you are right and the other is wrong… Arcturian Group…AUGUST 16, 2011… onenessofall.com

    Who can tell us what is after our human death if we choose it because if you are in a human body you may not remember who you really are so who can tell us. What happens? Where do we go? and why do we come back? Do we come back? From where do we get this information? Even if one has had an NDE does that mean that their experience will be ours,or is the NDE just one’s experience? So many want to tell us what will happen when the human body dies but yet our scientists tell us that the DNA was designed to last forever so then why does the body die and who choses to discard the body? Why do humans, rape, kill and torture others?
    Secondly what is meant Devine life? I hear his often but no one seems to explain really what is mean by Devine Life? What does it mean to evolve? Questions!!!

  3. James says:

    You people talk on and one without mentioning the one one component “God”. NDE experiences tell the truth, and I will believe them before I believe some scientist. You give them awards and money and for years they have found nothing substantial.

    • admin says:

      Right you are, and with the fact that many world conflicts are based on religion, it might be time for the individual to pursue experienced based religion, looking deep within for guidance.

  4. Arthur says:

    My opinion : Humans are an unfortunate evolutionary development, a dangerous predatory species. We invent religions in an attempt to rationalize and justify our destructive existence. Now with increasing population growth driven competition, we will get even more predatory. I see no hope for a civilized human species in the future, just more exploitation and destruction with a corrupt violent plutocracy at the top.

  5. rich says:

    When you die you are dead,you go back to the ground(dust)lifeless matter.

    • Jabez says:

      DNA says, as surely as “the very hairs of your head are all numbered,”
      “the rich man opened his eyes in torment, in the heart of the earth” and
      “as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be” through crossing the species barrier AGAIN. The sons of God will soon be revealed.

      We are the breath of God.

  6. chip says:

    What a great website. Total juice man. The light is definitely increasing. A million avatars and counting.

  7. Natasha says:

    There are an infinite number of dimensions and we can be in any one of those depending on our ability to conceive so becoming aware of what happens when we pass on is definitely helpful. There is nothing new under the sun and am sure we have experienced death in many prior lifetimes. The soul is eternal and never dies. It is the soul losing the physical body when it passes on rather then the other way around. Physics says that energy can neither be destroyed or created, it only changes. When water evaporates from a pot, a child might think that water is gone forever but we know better. We are all children trying to discover what life really is and means.

  8. Listen says:

    Put down what I said there are many who needs to know this.

  9. Red Mann says:

    Thank you for this, Eric.
    Thought proving, but, still, lacking in that “nothing is known”, only “theorized” or “summarized” or “believed”.
    Is not anything in the “spiritual quest” of humans “known as fact”?
    answer: NO

    YOU ALL NEED TO “REGAIN YOUR MEMORY OF WHO YOU REALLY ARE!
    YOU HAVE NO IDEA AT ALL.

    Let me share with you NOT WHAT I BELIEVE, but what I know AS TRUE,
    just because, I CAN REMEMBER WHO I AM!

    Maybe, someday, you will, too!
    I DO NOT “BELIEVE” ANYTHING!
    I “KNOW FACTS” ONLY!
    Like, I know
    THAT I AM IN HELL, RIGHT NOW!
    I REMEMBER WHAT AND WHO I REALLY AM!
    A “PURE ENERGY” SENTENTIAL BEING WHO HAS EXISTED FOR over a TRILLION YEARS.
    I EXIST ALL THE TIME – NOT ON THIS PLANET, – BUT, in “my home”, untouched by all of this.
    Time does not exist where i live.
    Distance does not exist.
    I think, and it takes form and substance here!
    ANYTHING I THINK!
    IN THIS PHYSICAL UNIVERSE!
    MADE FOR MY AMUSEMENT!
    MY PLEASURE!
    WE ARE ALL DESIGNED TO GO “AT WILL” FROM “BODY TO BODY”!
    EXPERIENCE SEX, FOOD, SMELL, ALL THE THINGS THAT DO NOT EXIST WHEN YOU EXIST AS PURE ENERGY – FOREVER – THAT CANNOT DIE – THAT CANNOT BE DESTROYED. AND, CAN LEAVE THAT BODY, IF YOU CARE TOO, WHEN SOMETHING “BAD” IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN.
    MADE FOR MY AMUSEMENT!
    THIS IS AN AMUSEMENT PARK FOR US, THE IMMORTAL BEINGS! AND WE DO NOT KNOW HOW IT GOT HERE! Because, foolish humans EVERYTHING IS NOT KNOWN!

    A “BODY” IS NO MORE THAN A “TEMPORARILY MEAT-WRAPPER” THAT WE “RIDE” IN! LIKE GETTING INTO THE “RIDE SLED” THAT BRINGS YOU AROUND THE TRACK AT “MAGIC MOUNTAIN”. WHEN THE RIDE IS OVER, YOU GET OUT OF THE VEHICLE THAT TRANSPORTED YOU OVER THE TRACK.

    BUT, YOU CAN BE TRAPPED, IMPRISONED, AND HAVE YOUR MEMORY “WIPED CLEAN’ AFTER EVERY “LIFETIME”.

    YOU POOR, LOST, IMMORTAL BEINGS!
    CANNOT REMEMBER A FREEKIN THING!

    SO, WHEN YOU “DIE” YOU ALL “GO TO THE LIGHT”!

    YOU CANNOT HELP YOURSELVES, IMAGES OF YOUR DEAD FRIENDS, FAMILY, ARE PULLED RIGHT OUT OF YOUR “FRESH MEMORIES” AND PROJECTED TO “LEAD YOU TO THE LIGHT, TO LOVE, TO god????????????????????????????

    AND THAT IS YOUR MISTAKE!
    THAT LIGHT IS GENERATED BY A MACHINE IN THIS PHYSICAL PLANE OF EXISTENCE!
    IT IS NOT HEAVEN.
    IT IS NOT god.

    The “Go to the Light” thing sure is a “common near death experience” of ALL HUMANS, remarkably similar when it is described. “Cannot resist” the “pure-love” that emulated from it; “irresistible” is the word used over and over again to describe “The Light”.

    BUT, IT SURE AS HELL (HAHAHA -no pun intended) does keep you all here (except Siddhartha -”The Buddha” cutting all the “family ties” in this life enabled him to recognize the “fresh memory inserts” at the moment of “death” AS FALSE MEMORY! He saw it as “a pure generated “form” from the machine, an illusion, transmitted right into his “pure energy form” intellect.

    YOU MUST GO VOLUNTARILY TO THE LIGHT!
    YOU CANNOT BE FORCED TO DO SO!

    So, the “family & friends” fresh memory “illusion” is used to get you to voluntarily “go to the light”.
    THE “LIGHT” GENERATES A TREMENDOUS ELECTRICAL “SHOCK”, WHICH WIPES YOUR LIFETIME OF MEMORIES AWAY – WIPES IT “CLEAN”!

    CAUSE YOU GET ZAPPED, LIKE A MOTH HITTING THE BUG ZAPPER SCREEN, YOUR MEMORY IS “WIPED CLEAN’ AND YOU ARE BORN BACK IN ANOTHER BODY, TRAPPED WITH NO MEMORY, FOR ANOTHER RATHER HELLISH LIFETIME OF PAIN, RAPE, WAR, STARVATION, TIDAL WAVES, VIOLENCE, CHILD-BIRTH, AND DEATH…………………. AGAIN……………………. OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN!

    UNLESS, YOU DO NOT GO TO THE LIGHT!

    How about you?
    Are you just another “sucker” for the light?????????????????????
    I bet you are!
    But, see why I do not care?
    About any of you?

    YOU CANNOT DIE.
    THE WORSE THAT HAPPENS IS YOUR BORN IN A “MEAT-WRAPPER”, HERE IN HELL, AGAIN!
    PERIOD!

    Good luck trying to escape this “Designed Prison World” for immortal beings who “Just cannot remember” literally who they are!

    It’s that religious conditioning that “sets you up for the psy-op job” at the moment of death!

    YOUR RELIGIOUS LEADER-MONSTERS KNOW!

    THEY ARE YOUR “PRISON GUARDS” AND ARE AFFORDED “SPECIAL PRIVILEGES”, TORTURING YOUR KIND!!!!!

  10. Steve B. says:

    I feel the people who win are not the richest bastards. The people who know how to have fune. They might go to the beach every weekend. They might They will have a swimming pool to swim when it is hot. They will ride bikes and will fish and water ski. But the ones who work 100 hours a week all the time don’t get it. If you are lucky enough to know how to have fun, but it makes a big differnece if you live near places with plenty to do. If you live near the ocean, then you have a place where to meet a lot of people and have cheap fun. Some people think going home each evening and watching tv for 75 years is so much fun and then you look back and can’t even think what you did. When each day is the same you need to get a life. If people would just turn off their tv they could free up their prison life and might go have fun.

  11. GRIM REAPER says:

    You’re fucking dead, moron.

  12. ed says:

    Simple. If you die without knowing Jesus as your personal savior, then you go to hell which is a hugh cavern between the earth’s core and the mantle, with molten fire and demons which were cast out of heaven. If you accepted the sacrifice that the Lord Jesus made when he died on the cross as payment for your sins, then your residency will most likely be in heaven. Read the bible before it’s too late!! If you don’t, remember, stop – drop – and roll, don’t work in hell!!
