The Afterlife

Do you believe in ghosts?

Truthfully, I am not sure myself – I do however like to think that the people in my life that have passed are still able to look in from time to time.

During stressful times, I like to ask my dad for help and guidance, he passed away 26 years ago this month. I thank him after regardless of the turnout.

I have always wondered about what comes in the afterlife. Is there a heaven or hell? Does your mind or spirit ascend into energy and become a higher being? Are you simply gone? Is it even possible to get a firm answer on the subject?

I was sitting in A&W, at a table alone one day. This restaurant has been in the same spot for many years – my father and I would go here semi regularly and sit at the same table, over the years and post many renovations- that table has managed to stay in the same spot. I was having a rather complicated day and I thought I would go have lunch with him. In my head I asked for a sign to know he was still around… The power went out. Could it have been a coincidence? I did the same thing a few months later, and then again a few months after that. I got no similar signal.

On Halloween, or the day of the dead, it is a great time to have a pondering moment about the afterlife.

Because there is no correct answer, I would love to hear your thoughts on the dead and what could be next….
