    Well, given we are eternal non physical forms of life we can never be dead.

    Of course, our mortal body will croak sooner or later.

    Might want to give to some thought to this right now we are as dead as we'll ever be concept.

    My guess is maybe the thing to put our attention towards is how alive we all are - or how much more alive we want to be !

    Have a very happy day !

    PS : Yes, I'm reading - and very much enjoying Seth.

    Maybe annoying to deal with at the moment, but, we really are as really already DEAD as we are ever going to get.

    We can't get any more dead than we already are.

    Can't die, Going to be here forever.

    Can we do better than we have been doing ? We got time, ya know.

    Isn't this fun to digest !

    No reason to fear death. It isn't coming.

    All we can do is just get on with it, enjoy, love, find our bliss . . . . . forever.

    It's all fun !

    Ah! Seth. The interest of the 1980's.

    He's good - in parts. Same as Hubbard.

    Yes, the mortal body of L. Ron Hubbard* is as dead as a ( dead ) mackerel. No doubt about it, that one croaked with or without help, but, croaked for sure!

    However, if one accepts that each of us is a non physical entity that always exists, then, even for that one - as for all others - there is the continuation of the non physical form.

    ( Whether one 'comes back' will all the memories of a previous life or lives is a whole different discussion ).

    Not only Seth through Jane Roberts but also Eastern philosophies & practices tend to lean towards life as eternal - sometimes life for all things.

    I'm playing with the idea that we each might be part of a 'universal consciousness' ( < - for lack of a better word ) that ,ost likely has no requirement of anyone to believe, accept, follow, be aware of - or anything else.

    Some might call it divinity or spirits or god or whatever - but just what if we are all connected and we all do go on forever ?

    * L. Ron Hubbard = mark me down as not a fan of that one.

    Sort of a fun ' what if ' that doesn't offer a guru to follow but suggests one lead ones own life. Is that a bad thing ?

    I imagine the fish scorned the pieces of lrh & let 'em settle to the bottom to join the slime collected on the mud.

    If A.K. Myers wants to express disagreement with my posting " have a very happy day ", well, OK, then the rest of the world I do send

    " Have a very happy day " !

    And, I hope A.K. gets whatever kind of day A.K. envisioned to have.

    In eternity where there is no time, nothing can grow, nothing can become, nothing changes...

    So Death created time to grow the things that it could kill. And you are reborn but into the same life that you've always been born into.

    You're trapped....that nightmare you keep waking up to....

    Oh, and just how were people born back into scientology when they had lived before it existed ?

    "If in eternity there is no time & nothing can grow SO death created time to grow things " Surely that is pure Hubbard, right ?
