The process of belief is more important than the belief itself as one thing comes before the other in a progressive mind. Should we not become aware, the outcome of our actions is illusory.
This is an example of progressive thinking which is our conditioned state. In the mind, one thing comes before the other, like exposer to language before learning to speak, read, and write- a progression.
- The Afterlife is created by illusions of life, minds without contact and unsatisfied with Life as it has been present (conditioned). Thus we look forward to the promise of an afterlife as the present is dissatisfying, stagnant, boring, regretful etc. (meaning the state of man, not individual comforts via choices).
- But suppose we are Life (connected)? Then it is not a question of belief or a desire to be fulfilled. Subconsciously and consciously, why is Life so dissatisfying that an afterlife is required? Disconnection?
- Thus, a mind guided by the belief that Life ends will require an afterlife to fill the emptiness and pain from the limits of living, as it is presented/conditioned.
Observe for ourselves. If one is disconnected with Life then there is only the struggle and hope of the afterlife. And a Life-connected requires the intelligent source of Life in which it is connected. As Life is a continuance, not an ending.
