Have always wondered...... what happens after we die??

What is life??

"Life is like an ocean...... sometimes calm, sometimes crazy,
Dreams are like a lake...... it takes a ripple to get you awake,
Joys and sorrow are like the stars above.....they come, they go,
But love is here forever.......come rain, shine or snow"

Afterlife..... What's it like then??

I had made up this poem a long time ago, but every time i read it, one question always pops into my mind..... What happens to the love, dreams, joys, sorrows after we die? I understand that we will not live forever and I have always wondered if we suddenly stop existing? A lot of books have given different thories , one author claimed that he feels that we just start reliving in another time phase.According to him, there are a few fortunate ones who are able to come back in their past life for a few moments, we call them ghosts but most of us just forget the past life and start afresh........ Another theory states that we come back in the form of animals, animal lovers would love this one!! But my all time favourite is that our spirit continues to live on, we experience all the joys, sorrows ,dreams etc but in spirit form.We even get to be around our loved ones and can be with them again once their tenure in the body form ends.

And the wait is on.......

This is one subject that has always fasinated me, I sometimes feel that had we known what was there at the other end of the tunnel, we would not have lived our life in so much fear. We are always so fearful of death as we feel it is the end...... but if we were told that it was a beginning to a better something....... would life have been more fun?? I remember making a deal with my dad a long time ago, that who ever went first, would come back and tell the other what lay beyond. Dad seems to have forgotten our conversation as he has not even given me a hint so far...... but I always wait in anticipation!!!
