Re: Will dying be like waking up from a dream?
No. dying is like having your soul ripped out of your body and extinguished.

There is nothing after death. Death is the end, kaput - IT...

And in most cases its extremely physically painful as well.
 Quoting: Bowyn Aerrow


ummm wrong. You will be surprised what you see - on the other side !! More real than here
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 18713240
Life on earth is like a pit stop to a never ending Journey.Im Looking forward to it personaly.
In your mind you can die, maybe get a glimpse of what it may be like for you, possibly make some changes while you can.
If it was kaput.... your life would be meaningless. No point in living at all. We Are here to Glorify God, so he can glorify you in heaven.

Yes. That's exactly how it is described. This life will seem like it was fuzzy and colorless compared to the next.

No. It is like when you have major surgery and the anesthetist count backwards from 100. And then you are awake. Well dieing is like when you reach 97 then you do not wake up again.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15329004


So many time, going under the knife, I wish I had not woken up. But when I did, I thought, hey, this is what it is like to be reborn. From blackness/nothingness into light and a body. Thus, I have lost my fear of death, but not pain.

 Quoting: Bentleysports


imagine yourself as you are today, you will be the same personality when you slide across, but it will not be like a dream at the start, you will be scared shitless and wander about thinkng you are still alive, you will even see your body but you will just be like........

a bubble.

Your memories will be intact, you will see your entire life and you will also review your actions and analyse them.

But before all that will happen, you have to get through the first stage so let's get back to the fear....

You will be afraid and not understand anything, though you will suddenly know everything....

You will then panic, but the good thing is that your loved ones will be there who have already passed on, your mom, dad, aunt, grandmother, they are the ones who will take your fears away, for they were always with you when you were alive and are now there for you when you die...

..Unless you do something dumb like suicide, then you won;t get the treatment, you will just reamin near the place you took your life, and you will not be ascending (yes, the real ascension happens at death, and not when you are alive), for you will have to roam the earth in limbo until a replacement body is found, usually one that will not allow you to suicide based on the physical charcteristics of your new body. you will then ride out your life in a state akin to vegetative, and you will be at the mercy of whoever you are the child of - not good.....

If you have killed, you will also not be seeing your family, you will see the people you killed, bubble to bubble and as you will know evreything, you will feel the pain and torment that the person you killed felt, and guess what? when you are forced back, you will have to experience what you did first hand.

There is a hell of a lot more involved but this should be enough fodder for you to consider how you live you lives now, for what goes around, really will come around....

That why many people are scared shitless at the point of death, because they know they are about to face themselves, the worst judge and jury that you can have!

There is no forgiveness for all the bad you do here, mark my words.

Re: Will dying be like waking up from a dream?
I think a lot of stories about people dying and coming back are the just the experience of dreaming nice dreams under the influence of end of life endorphins. The body may die but the brain takes a while to stop functioning completely and it floods itself with endorphins (probably to reduce pain and make death itself tolerable)

IMO, you dream as you die..but once you complete the death process, that is the end of your conscious existence in this universe. If the next plane exists, it's nothing your 3d mind could comprehend or relate back to people.

I've thought about this...

What if your mind, as you die, slows down to the point where time essentially stops, from your point of view?

LIke when you sleep, sometimes, it can feel like days have gone by in a few hours...but what if you went just a little deeper?

What if the afterlife is a virtual eternity entirely within the confines of whatever you've built in your mind and/or filled your heart with?

Yikes.

Re: Will dying be like waking up from a dream?
I was in a pretty horrible moto accident in 2001 and both lungs collapsed, couldn't breathe, right leg wrapped 20 times in a circle, and all ribs on the right side of my body broken and sticking in my lungs. I grew up on a farm and knew this was death.

I didn't feel anything other than knowing that if I wasn't put together soon I would die in minutes. I thought of wanting to talk to my family again, but couldn't. I couldn't breathe, I couldn't move, and I couldn't feel a single thing.

Nothing special happened. Not a single thing. Woke up in the ICU the next day. Death is just that. Nothing.

Re: Will dying be like waking up from a dream?
nope. because this is not a dream.

but on some level, yes and no.

are you affraid of dying? im not, and im not asking for it.
To live is to believe in the power of dreams! To dream is to believe in the power of love! To love is to Know the truth!
The Desire to Be fuel the belief that you Are which ignite the Will to Become which bring back forth the desire to be...
Let it be-come you! It means Stop seeking your higher self! It is seeking you! Stand still in your mind to calm the waters of your mind and then it shall find you, so you can ride those waves together!
your true self lies somewhere between your heart and your consciousness. It is called the heart consciousness,which is the creator, which is you!
The heart create the emotions and our mind evoke its purpose, from which we dream the life we live in order to imagine the nature of reality and finally remember love!

The highest Purpose of our mind is the ability to Forget! Go on and Forgive yourself!
There is no love in truth but there is truth in love!
Be authentic, nobody else can do it for you!

My experience made me forget the fear of dying...it's just passing, nothing else. Once you're too close, just accept it if you can understand that's the end. Otherwise, fight if you want and think you can survive. I have no fear of death nowadays, but I don't seek it.

Re: Will dying be like waking up from a dream?
Experienced a near death state once.

It was extremely intense. People say bliss, but at it's extreme it mingles into pain and the most memorable mark remains the ineffable otherworldly intensity. Words fall flat.

I'm reminded of the quote from the first Hellraiser(rest were not so delightfully ambiguous about the Cenobites).

Demon to some. Angel to others.


Which at first seemed odd as I was disconnected from my body.

There were many odd dimensions to that place, and though I felt I was there for hours I woke up 10 minutes later.

I'm interested by the idea that whatever you believe to be true is what you will experience.

Many believe, but nobody knows.

I hear what you mean about it being strange to return to the material plane afterwards.

If we meet in the place beyond sides, remind me of this post and we can romp about a pocket dimension. If you hold onto the thought, maybe it can be a beacon.

Re: Will dying be like waking up from a dream?
No I died and came back OP years ago. I did not believe in an afterlife but assumed if there was one, you must just forget your life on earth. How could you be happy if all your loved ones were on earth and you remembered them?

To my surprised I remembered everything. You are as aware as you are right now, maybe even more so. I was happy but ended up being worried about how my family would feel as I was so young, and came back.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1408355


This happened to me too. My only realization of
popping out of my body was seeing what I will call
angels standing around my body and wrapping it in
a cocoon of light since it was winter time on a
mountain when I "passed". They called it my
"container". It did not hurt and I also felt just
like I had, with all my memories intact. One
surprising thing, all the beings looked alike
and yet I knew one of them, so suspect the
experience had awakened "a memory" from before
I was in this body? Anyway, after my experience,
I came flying back down the ribbon of light and
slammed into my body. The gravity of it was so
intense and I fell over with my head on the ground
and could not move for about a half hour. That
was the only painful part.

Numerous cases of the life after death, it's actually more 'life between lifes', are described in the books of Michael Newton.

As far as i know, you have all your memories and you will review your soul's progress with one of your guides. And then if you're ready you plan your next life.

Re: Will dying be like waking up from a dream?
I'm not sure, but I've never felt this life was truly real. It's just a couple steps above a dream. To our "higher selves" or "souls" or whatever remains after we croak, this life may seem as meaningless and as important as a dream does to our human selves.

But if I were a gambler, I'd bet on the idea that when we're dead, that's it, no consciousness no nothing.

I just really hope my soul isn't ripped from my body and flung into the depths of the abyss to be tortured for all of eternity. Think long and hard about the idea of something that is never-ending. Intellectually we all know what the definition of eternity is, but you sort of have to meditate on it for a bit for the implications of eternity to hit you, the true realization of such a thing hits very hard once you get it.. I'm not a religious person, but lately the possibility of some sort of damnation concerns me. No matter how silly the idea is and no matter how remote the possibility may be, I'm of the philosophy that anything is indeed possible as I don't *know* otherwise.

Anyway, we'll see what'll happen soon enough. All of us will, some day. Look down at your hand and know one day that very hand will be decaying, and soon all that will be left is bone, and soon after that, naught but dust. Or if you're to be cremated, you'll skip the decay part. Bwahaha.
