The Next Life
I just learned that a very dear and long time friend of mine from childhood has lost her mom. I knew her very well and everyone who knew her, loved her. So, naturally, even though it has been many years since I've seen her, I still feel a deep emotion for my friend and the loss she is enduring.
However, for me and the way I see it, death is not the end of the road for the person who has passed. It is the end of what they needed to accomplish on this plane of existence and now the individual gets to move on, to move forward to a new level and a new way of being. Without pain and suffering that often comes before death. They are born again into the Summerland away from the constraints of the human body.
I would like to think that people who have struggled through the lessons of this life are rewarded with some gift of freedom in the next life. I think you have to do some time in this world to learn before you can move to the next. That also explains why children from conception on sometimes don't stay with us very long. Perhaps they were spirits that didn't have to be here for very long, but merely make a presence before moving to the next life.
Anyway, those are my thoughts on how I see death.
