Why should we concern ourselves with life after death?

Part of the mission of the Community of Spirits, which I will elaborate upon in my next blog, is to form a “genuine connection with life between death and rebirth” and “to have formed an idea of the conditions of life after death.” I hope you will join us in this.

The great Rudolf Steiner Quotes Site

There are many people, particularly in our materialistic age, who ask why they should concern themselves with life between death and rebirth or, if the idea of repeated earth lives is rejected, with an existence after death, since they surely can wait and see what happens after death when the time comes! This is said by people today who have not quite lost the feeling for the spiritual world but who are not yet equipped with sufficient soul-powers to acquire concepts and feelings about the super-sensible. They add that if they perform their duty here on earth, they shall experience in the appropriate way what awaits them after death.

Now a genuine connection with life between death and rebirth brings out clearly the fallacy of such a view and how important it is during earthly existence to have formed an idea of the conditions of life after death.

  1. I am happy to join in on the mission of this blog. It is astounding how people gloss over death and what happens after — as if ignoring it will make it go away. In their defense, I think it is the element of pain and the unknown that frightens them. It was the death of my partner that brought it all in focus for me. I’ve been studying it since that day because I just want to know where he is and what he is experiencing. I still feel his presence. I know he’s out there. I just want to know about it. My father recently passed away. He didn’t want to think about what was coming. He told me that in his 88 years of life on earth he never once considered death. I asked, “Not once?” He said, “Not once!”

  2. Yes Mary…and it is the pain and the fear that I hope the Communiy of Spirits will help ease by looking deeply into the “unknown’ and bringing it near to us…as in fact…it truly is. We share the same space with the dead. I too came to this work through the death of a loved one. It seems we are often initiated by trauma. I welcome you Mary as a member of the Community of Spirits. Let us explore to unseen worlds.
