"Of course you like Art's version better! LOL Who wouldn't? Nothing matters. Everything's copacetic. Belief is immaterial. Bliss awaits. I think, though, in your heart of hearts, you know that can't be right." - cc
"Islam & Christianity both place belief/faith as the key for entrance to "heaven/Elysian fields".paradise. Hinduism & Buddhism center more on enlightenment/liberation/purification." - tiscotto
And the third alternative? The Creator of the Universe was a whole lot smarter than we give Him/Her credit for. Everything is perfect, everything is working the way it should, the soul learns holistically what it's supposed to learn regardless of who we are, or where we live, or what we believe.
Everybody is healed when they enter that light. Everyone is instantly enlightened when they become reconnected to that Light. We are like actors in an educational play and as we participate in that play our souls learn the stuff they are supposed to learn. God is smarter than we give Him/Her credit for.
Free will is an illusion. All major religions are based on free will. I'm pretty sure free will is a big fat illusion. We have to believe it's all real so we have the appropriate emotional response to the lessons we encounter because the more emotional the experience the more powerful and long lasting the memory it creates.
We will look back on this life like it was a dream and it happened in the blink of an eye.
excerpt from Michelle M's NDE:
"I felt an understanding about life, what it was, is. As if it was a dream in itself. It's so very hard to explain this part. I'll try, but my words limit the fullness of it. I don't have the words here, butI understood that it really didn't matter what happened in the life experience, I knew/understood that it was intense, brief, but when we were in it, it seemed like forever. I understood that whatever happened in life, I was really ok, and so were the others here."
from Carl Turner's mystical experience:
"I had the realization that I was everywhere at the same time...and I mean everywhere. I knew that everything is perfect and happening according to some divine plan, regardless of all the things we see as wrong with the world."
from James E's NDE:
"I was not "told" anything in the light, as much as, I just knew everything there was to know. I knew why there was bad in the world, I knew why there was good, I knew that every little thing that will ever occur here, is exactly planned out, in order to bring about something else. Everything we have ever done or known or will know, is perfectly planned out and perfectly in tune."
