Personal Evolution...
    #718558 - 07/02/02 07:36 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Could ones afterlife depend on the level of personal evolution that was reached during their lifetime??? If everyones afterlife experiences are all equal, is their any reason for people to search for answers or just constantly wonder about the spirits journey? I think so, for personal reasons, and i find it one of my hobbies. I would like to understand more while i am here......What do you think??
Peace, Trev

My opinion of Afterlife, as of this moment, is that we Progress according to our Last Life
For example, if you were a hardened crimnal, you would have to repeat a 'Grade' as it were, until you learned why it is wrong to be a criminal. But then we get into 'whats Right WHats Wrong Debate" and that could take hours to end...
The debate around here is that One must experience every facet of human emotion. From the Poorest Peasant to the Richest Czar, we get to live, experience, them move on.
I'm leaning more towards the Pay as You Go Theory - if your good now, You'll hopefully have it better next time round. Eventually ascending to a higher eschelon of Being, where you no longer need corporal form, and can either be a Guide of some sort, or Travler, which ever you chose.
I guess I'll find out when the time comes.

i personally can't help but do it. if i don't, and i just concentrate on superficial success, i get this nagging voice saying "why? why? why? but, why???" all the time. my intuition, which has been reinforced by my collective experiences and thoughts, has me very convinced that there is much more to life than meets the eye, and that the things that go on in my mind and the interactions i make in this life matter somehow, somewhere. not 100% convinced. i could just be an active node of some paradoxical random fluctuation of void - a random feature of nothing - perhaps ordered, but blind, and dying for release, the victim of a terrible accident (that probably makes no sense to anyone but me, i know, just humor me) but i think its much more likely that, grand as the universe is, it's just one miniscule piece of something much more grand.

but i don't have any beliefs on the afterlife. i, personally, have yet to come across anything to make reincarnation any more than a "somewhat likely event". ditto for aliens.

as for personal evolution. i do believe that there probably is such a thing. but how can you even judge personal evolution anyway? is it dependent on how much knowledge one acquires of the afterlife, of the cosmos? how strong a person's will is? how well defined their sense of morals, how closely they follow to them? how much they manipulate their environment? all of the above, none of the above?
