In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have not told you.
Death is a little tricky to observe. In religion, no one other than Jesus came back to tell us much about it. However, like religion, science has something to offer regarding information describing the process of death.
Dr. Eben Alexander is an American neurosurgeon and author. He wrote the book titled Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife.
I found his book to be one of the best scientific descriptions of death. He describes his experience during a medically induced coma for meningitis in 2008. For a detailed journey into his experience, I highly recommend reading his book.
Additionally, you may have heard of Elisabeth Kübler-Ross. She is a well-respected Swiss-American psychiatrist who studied the death and grief process of many dying patients. I recommend reading her book On Death and Dying. Her observations, along with Dr. Alexander’s observations, reliably shed light on what to expect after we die.
Many other scientists and healthcare professionals have brought a scientific approach to the observation of death and dying, but I consider both Alexander and Kübler-Ross to be the best sources of this information.
The trajectory of their—as well as others’—observations regarding death can be interpolated and reconstructed. The following reconciles both religious and scientific accounts of death.
The Definition of Death
The definition of death is the separation of your consciousness from your current reality and the realization that you still exist.
The Purpose of Death
The purpose of death is to know yourself and the grandest version of the greatest vision you hold about who you really are. Contrast this with the purpose of life, which is to experience yourself in the grandest version of the greatest vision you create. In life we experience; in death we know. The difference is not a subtle nuance. To experience something and to know something are quite different; this is the difference between life and death.
The Structure of Death
After realizing that you still exist, you will choose to stay in this current realm as long as it serves you. After accepting your death, you will move on to the realm of belief. This is where you experience everything in death exactly as you expected it to be. You will see the God of your choosing—God will show up in any form you believed He or She would. You will stay in the realm of belief until it no longer serves you, when you find a discrepancy between what you believe and what you desire.
When the two no longer match, as they frequently do not, you will move from the realm of belief to the realm of desire. All your desires will be fulfilled with effortless ease. When that serves you no longer, you will have the highest experience you will ever have—a direct experiencing, recognizing of, and connecting with God. Visually, you will see nothing but a black void. The feeling can best be explained as a shiver, only it’s a shiver times one million. You will recognize this black void as God, your oldest eternal friend. You will remember God. There will be no experience in eternity that you will ever have like this.
After this experience, you will find yourself in a realm with souls that vibrate at your frequency. In this realm, you will reexamine your past life. You will reexamine the things you did well and your creations that worked. You will reexamine all the things you wish you could redo—your creations that did not work. From there, you will begin to create your birth vision.
Your birth vision consists of what your next life is going to be. My advice here is to pick a life that will challenge you but that is attainable. If you pick your next life and it is too easy, there will be no evolution of your soul. If you create a birth vision that is too difficult, the results may not be what you want. The goal is to get you to experience your next best self, one step at a time. Every sequence in reincarnation and every building block of the soul has a purpose, and the direction is always up. The direction is always to someplace freer, more joyful, and more deeply entrenched with love.
Next, you are born. (And hopefully your parents have picked out a good obstetrician to see over your safe arrival.)
The Function of Death
The imagining and creation of your next life, while building your whole self throughout your eternal journey, keeps you and God from getting bored.
It is in the place we have come to call “death” that the boredom of eternity is eradicated. This is death’s function.
And the information provided in this book has just come full circle.
