Do You Wish to Live Beyond this Shore?

I think human psyche is programed to think of life extending beyond this human form. Some believe in reincarnation while others have other beliefs though no one has real proof that we do exist hereafter. To a great extent we live here with an eye on future existence, sort of we have a homing instinct that guides our thoughts and actions. As for myself, I am open to any eventuality. If it is all over here, it is fine. If something is there beyond, it is also fine. However, I would like that my effort here has some bearing on where I find myself n later. But then, if I have no recollection of who I was, does it matter? What is your take on this issue? I know of beliefs that most take refuge in. But then we also have personal perspective at the back of the mind how we would like where we want to end up in, if at all; or want life to end right here with little inclination for existing beyond.

I have not a personal opinion on this. I think we have to make our paradise on earth, just in case when it is finished there is nothing after.

@Shiva49 What we do during our life and make our life enjoyable is what is more important.

I agree with you on this. Reincarnation has always made the most sense of any belief to me, though I am open to whatever.

I do believe there will be life in the hereafter. What we will be like there depends on what we did on earth. If we harvested good things, then we will benefit from it.
