I don't think death is too different than life....merely a different dimention of our consciousness .
That's an interesting shift of perspective and one that is likely closer to the truth when you really look at it!
One of the first conversations I had with my brother, the day after he passed, he told me that his physical life now resembled a dream. He said that he was still 'himself' and yet he could also access the expanded version of himself, experience complete oneness and every incarnation he had every experienced, all simultaneously. He continues to stress that the nature of his new dimension or realm is difficult to accurately describe as the physical mind can only process information that applies to this realm....but incredible bliss and joy (at least what I understand that to be) do seem to be a part of his experience.
Much of what he conveys to me about the nature of the afterlife realm comes in chunks....concepts that get sifted down throughout the course of a day, for example. He also send me little jokes that tell me he's still the same crazy guy he always was....very comforting.
but yes, overall I get the sense that he has expanded in consciousness from what he knew himself to be here and that in this expansion he feels incredibly free.
