Consciousness does NOT die. At the time of physical death, consciousness just changes its residence to a different type of life container. At death, consciousness moves into another vessel which it has earned the right to, and thus, gains access to another realm of life.
You may feel that you have come here for some reason you do not know, or at least do not remember, and thus, you wonder what this is all about. It is possible to remember. In fact, it is easy to do. It is so easy that when you finally do remember, you will wonder how you ever managed to forget.
You come from “somewhere” before you were born and you go “somewhere” when you die. Religions attempt to define this experience for you, but the truth is it can be known by one personally. It is possible to keep contact with that “somewhere” while you are in a physical body. As a consequence, a vast world of growth opens up to the seeker or pilgrim soul.
