The Huge Benefits of Afterlife Knowledge
I became interested in the afterlife after completing my first book, Unifying Truths of the World’s Religions. It became clear that although world religions acknowledge the existence of an afterlife, most don’t provide many details about it. I concluded that learning about what our eternal life will be like, after this relatively short time on Earth, could provide many keys for right living in accordance with the way our Creator wants us to live.
There are many hundreds, if not thousands, of books on the subject of the afterlife, and after reading several dozen I became more and more excited. I discovered a consensus among them describing greater joy, love and beauty than we can possibly imagine. For several years in my spare time I compiled the best descriptions of different levels of the afterlife, the best evidence confirming its existence, and reached a useable understanding of how it all works. I realized just how beneficial all this afterlife information would be to others. The numerous benefits include:
This knowledge can lessen the pain of losing a loved one. Often, the grief and sadness are difficult to bear. Knowing life does not end at “death” and that God has prepared countless beautiful environments for our ongoing life can be extremely comforting for all who are now missing someone dear. This knowledge includes discovering that our lives beyond Earth are filled with meaningful things to do in loving service, as well as the enjoyment of loving relationships and pleasurable pastimes.
It is easier to feel free from the fear of death. Once the abundance of evidence is known, it is difficult to ignore the fact that life is eternal. This significantly increases a person’s motivation and enthusiasm to apply spiritual law through practicing greater love, forgiveness, and service to others. Also, ‘death’ will be much easier, as you will know what to expect.
Another huge benefit is that a soul will arrive at a higher, more beautiful level in the afterlife due to greater afterlife knowledge, which provides motivation for practicing greater love and service.
The appreciation for the beauty of life is enhanced. There will be greater sensitivity for the beauty of nature, the warmth in a smile, giving and receiving support to and from loved ones, and all aspects of living a good and righteous life.
A most comforting benefit is enjoying greater freedom from the fear of judgment, by learning of the mercy and forgiveness regarding our inevitable mistakes in life.
Finally, another nice benefit from learning more about the afterlife is the anticipation of what awaits us. A significant part of the fun of traveling is looking forward to it ahead of time—well, we are all going to go on a BIG trip! We all know that our physical bodies only last so long. But thank God (literally) that our eternal consciousness, our soul and spirit are NOT dependent on the physical world. We can experience the joy of knowing life will be more enjoyable and meaningful. All the beauty and goodness of life, including FEELING so much better—is MAGNIFIED for all good people.
Life offers so much to anticipate, to look forward to, if we focus our attention on what is good and true--on our spirituality.
