When I first began investigating the afterlife in 1997, I was mostly interested in knowing where my father went after death. As the years progressed, however, I came to ask myself new questions, deeper questions. The subject of this article was a big one.
I’m going to explain the five key factors that became apparent many years into my investigation, but one should keep in mind that there are an infinite number of factors that determine how and when we die. It’s important to know too that while one or two factors might be the most influential, it’s really an intricate combination and balance of all of them that leads to the ultimate deciding factor.
Personally, I don’t think the human brain is capable of understanding the infinite, at least not in the way we’ll understand it in the spiritual dimension. Imagine trying to create a plan that not only helps one individual accomplish her goals for a human life but also correlates with the goals of perhaps 200 or more human beings who have a relationship of some sort with that person. Then, take that a step further to consider the ripple effects of both that first individual and those 200 people and how those ripple effects influence millions of other people and the world itself.
This is the issue with spiritual discussions of this sort. Still, I believe that by understanding these five key factors regarding how and when we die, we can at least grab hold of a reasonable comprehension of this vast and complex question. And in doing so, I think it helps to provide us with a level of inner peace that we might not have had before our understanding of this subject.
