When we die, where do we go? Does the soul leaves the body and rises towards the light?

Energy is a form of Qi or life force and it flows within all living things. In Chinese Astrology and the other art of metaphysics such as Feng Shui, Qi is the life force that create us human beings. According to science, energy cannot be destroyed but it can be transformed.

When we die, the energy takes another form and once it leaves the body, the Qi of the dead can influence the descendants through the location and facing direction of the burial plot. With the help of a Feng Shui master, the dead can be a source of beneficial Qi for the living. In other words, our ancestors are a force to be reckon with if the Qi of their burial grounds are harnessed according to the landform.

From another perspectives other than metaphysics, we can also look at energy as transformative from a philosophical angle. People sees death as an escape from a cruel world and the suffering of the physical, mental and emotional kind. This is why some people take their own lives with the aim of ending their suffering. But does death brings closure?

There are some people who can communicate with the dead and feel or see spirits. Their bodies can act as vessels for energy to come in and go out. They act as mediums to channel energy through their bodies and make contacts with ghosts or spirits. How people cross over to the afterlife, whether peaceful or restless, depends on their state of mind on the verge of death. If there is still unfinished business in this world, there will be restless spirits that traverse the physical world. It is believed that unless these restless spirits can cross over to the spiritual world through closure of some sort, there will be haunting and supernatural occurrence.

If we look at this subject from other perspectives, the world of materialism that we live in is also a breeding ground of greed and money is the root of it all. Money, for all its corruptive forces, can also transcend the realm of materialism to reach the height of benevolence. People who steal, cheat or launder money due to greed is blinded by emotion and if they were to die now, none of the ill-gotten gain can be carried to the grave. Even if any of the wealth is honestly acquired, the wealthy people cannot take it with them when they die.

So, how can we transform money into a higher form of value that we can benefit from when we die?

Just like energy which is transformative, money is tangible but its value is transcendence and is reflective of our morals. Based on sound financial management, we should use money with prudence and learn to diversify our investment. We should not put all the eggs in one basket. In the same token, we should not hold all our money in this materialistic world but transform it into moralistic value through acts of kindness which can be beneficial for the living and the dead. Towards this end, we can carry our wealth to a heavenly universe.

To put it philosophically, we should do more acts of kindness as it is an investment that can make us rich spiritually by the time we reach the end of our lives. If we believe in God, this is our investment in heaven. Our soul rises towards the light and become enlightened beings!

In the end, only kindness matters and death provides a way out of this existential life if we choose to live wisely.
