The answer may be found in the question, in the identification of the "I." Who we think we are and who we really are affects how we consider life after death, and what we will thus "feel" there.
Did we live before our mortal lives? Was there a premortality? Do we bring God's children into the world? Yes, but not literally.
What masks do we wear? What roles do we play? What self do we think we are? It is probably not the true Self. Coming out goes deep within.
We are not independent of nature, nor are we the cause of our self, but rather we arise in a deeper Source. That is our true Self.
Did the idea of "God" only arise with humans? And if so, what does that say about the reality of God, and our relationship with God?
Many people don't like the way that HBO's television drama Game of Thrones is turning out. Is there a deeper moral here?
We often feel alone in the world, separate from an ultimate or absolute. But why?
Is there "one true church," and if so, who or what is it?
We operate from two identities simultaneously during our life, but one of those identities is greater, and is the one that we should strive to know, and be One with.
A friend asked me what my take was on the problem of evil, or theodicy, so I thought I'd write about it here.
