Jesus: “...before Abraham was, I am.”

Jesus knew from whence he came. Few of the rest of us do. All answers center around the question of belief. Something cannot be true for you unless you believe it could be true. Physical: Seeing is believing. Spiritual: Believing is seeing.

As spirit we (all of us) have always been. There is no time in the afterlife; everything happens all at once in the eternal moment of now.

Physicists know this is true of the "real" world. The equations of physics are symmetric with respect to time; they work as well going backwards in time as they do forwards in time. What creates the arrow of time in the universe is the increase of entropy, i.e., the decrease in usable energy tied to the increase of information. We can't put the genie back in the bottle.

The more we as individuals learn about such things, and other lessons we accrue in the physical, the less we need or desire to become creatures in the physical.

These and others are opinions I hold at my current level of understanding. No doubt they will change over time and I will become wiser.

Great post. You got it all right.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away. -- George Carlin
