Is There an Afterlife?

Is There an Afterlife?

I’ve always doubted the idea of an afterlife because I compared death to sleep. However, my beliefs about the afterlife changed after studying ancient cultures and modern religion.

I realized that most ancient cultures, for instance, the Africans, Arabians, and Greeks, believed in an afterlife despite living far apart.

The Greeks believed the soul survived death and went to Hades. Moreover, they believed good Greeks enjoyed life after death while evil Greeks were tormented.’ Also, all African cultures believed their ancestors’ spirits survived death, and they regularly poured libation to them. Some African cultures even performed burial ceremonies and rituals that ensured their beloved ones traveled safely to the spirit world.

Besides ancient cultures, modern religions believe in life after death. For instance, both Muslims and Christians believe we survive death: they believe our current actions determine what we’ll experience after death.  As well, Buddhists believe in the afterlife because death only leads to the end of the body, but not the spirit. They believe that an individual can be reborn after death.

Is it possible that an afterlife doesn’t exist considering that ancient cultures living far away from each other believed in life after death? Did religions and ancient cultures make up the idea of life after death?

I believe the intuitive abilities of ancient/deeply religious folks allowed them to realize the existence of an afterlife, and I support them because I recently discovered that we have a spirit-self besides our egoic and physical self. I think death only eradicates the physical and egoic-self but fails to eliminate the spirit-self.

Also, the fact that we are energy beings forces me to support the idea of an afterlife because as Einstein said, ‘Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.’ Maybe we survive death because it only alters our form by turning us into pure spiritual entities without a body.

Furthermore, my belief in the spirit world forces me to support life after death because this world allows souls to experience life without a human body.

Anyway, we’ll never know if an afterlife truly exists. But we must strive to live life to the fullest because, if life after death exists, we might regret failing to live up to our full potential. Maybe our eyes will open when we die, and we’ll realize that we stressed over trivial things instead of enjoying life in a magical and blessed world.

Peace Be With You

The Three Major Voices in our Heads and Why We Must Know Them

We all have voices in our heads, and some of us try silencing them because they sometimes cause depression, anxiety, or worry. Although these voices mostly cause feelings of distress, some of them can help us overcome obstacles and understand our true selves. It’s thus important to know the type of voice present in your head at any moment so that you know whether to ignore it or listen to it.

I wanted to know the different types of voices in my head, and therefore, I meditated on them, and I eventually realized that there are three major types of voices in our heads.

Here are they:

1.The Animal Voice

The animal voice mainly focuses on survival. It likes talking about food, water, sleep, sex, and other factors necessary for our survival. For instance, if you haven’t had sex for a long time, this voice will constantly talk about sex, and it will try to help you find a way to fulfill your sexual desires. Also, if you haven’t slept for a while, it will constantly tell you that you need to sleep since it knows that sleep is important to your survival.

2.The Ego Voice

This is the loudest and the main voice that speaks to us all the time. It’s created by our egoic-self.

The ego voice is highly judgmental and pessimistic. It fears uncertainty, and it will always talk you out of taking risks or doing anything with an uncertain outcome, even when it will be beneficial in the long-run. Besides, it likes knowing everything about the future, and for this reason, it will always overanalyze or try to predict the future.

The ego voice is usually confused since it is disconnected from reality. Lastly, it usually talks about your appearance and social status, and it worries when you encounter factors that make you feel less important.

3.The Voice of Infinite Intelligence/The Intuitive Voice/The Voice of God

Mastering the intuitive voice is the secret to spiritual growth because this voice loves directing you towards spiritual development by reminding you about the importance of spiritual practices. It also loves reminding you about your dreams and your heart’s desires so that you follow them and reach your full potential. Besides this, it cares about everybody, and it encourages you to be compassionate, loving, selfless, and benevolent.  

This voice is never confused, and everything makes sense when it speaks. We must learn to pinpoint and trust it because it always leads people towards prosperous and fulfilling lives.

Conclusion

It’s important to know the difference between these voices so that we know the voice that we must pay attention to, and the voice we must silence or ignore. Anyway, besides these voices, I believe there are many other voices in our heads. You are free to discuss them in the comment box below.

How Mainstream Academia Disconnected Us From Ancient Spirituality

How Mainstream Academia Disconnected Us From Ancient Spirituality

After analyzing mainstream academia for a while, I realized that it has disconnected us from ancient spirituality because it wants to keep us unenlightened.

One major way it has disconnected us from ancient spirituality is by classifying myths as stories with no value. Academia has resulted in a negative attitude towards mythology as it claims that myths were based on superstitions and fantasy. However, anyone who deeply analyzes myths realizes that they contain powerful spiritual lessons.

For instance, anyone who studies the Myth of Gilgamesh realizes that its creators wanted us to know that virtue results in immortality because, in the story, Gilgamesh realized that he would be remembered forever if he committed himself to becoming a virtuous king.

Besides myths, mainstream academia has concealed the truth about ancient blood sacrifices. Today, we never bother to study ancient blood sacrifices because academia brainwashed us into believing that they had no value. However, blood sacrifices were important because blood contains the essence of life force, and therefore, spiritual entities gained from these sacrifices in a way that mainstream academia refused to tell us.

Furthermore, academia has resulted in many people believing that polytheism was founded on a false belief system. However, many ancient history researchers now believe in the existence of many lesser gods, besides the Supreme God. They claim that it was from the lesser gods that the Christian and Muslim belief of angels was derived. As well, my analysis of ancient spirituality enlightened me that ancient people were polytheists because their strong connection to the spirit-world enabled them to see the lesser gods.

Moreover, mainstream academia instilled in us the belief that ancient religions were based on superstitions and are unreliable since they were created by primitive individuals. Academia avoids telling us that ancient spirituality was so powerful that it enabled the ancients to have a deep connection with nature. This connection enabled them to know medicinal, poisonous, and edible plants instinctively. Today, we spend lots of money to pinpoint edible and medicinal plants because we lost our connection with nature.

On top of that, I discovered that mainstream academia never informs us that today, many wealthy individuals secretly visit shamans – that still practice ancient spirituality – because they have realized the effectiveness of ancient spiritual practices.

In conclusion, I think we should start studying ancient spirituality and stop relying on the information that mainstream academia gives us about ancient spirituality because academia’s main aim is to convert us into dumb machines that work for the elite’s companies.
