I believe - and hope - that death will be like stepping out of the physical body and into an existence of spirit in the same way a person can step out of a broken down car and start walking. It's only the worn out or diseased physical body that actually 'dies' - not the force within.
I know this is a pretty hard concept for many people to accept and believe - myself included some of the time - but I ask myself how can this not be the case? I am in my physical body looking out at, and experiencing, the world. How am I in this body, how did I come to be, where would my conscience be if I were not physically here and hadn't been born?
The world, everything in it and the universe are much too complex, in my opinion, to have been created by accident. Whoever or whatever created us must have created the life force that is within us. That life force is not something that is simply extinguished when the physical body dies.
I realise that I might not have put across a strong argument here and that there are many doubters who will probably have an answer to what I have said.
These are simply my beliefs and I'm not trying to convince anyone.
