I know alot of fellow pagans believe in the Summerlands, but i have never even researched it, Any sort of afterlife to settle into whether it be heaven, hell, reincarnation, summerlands, nirvana etc, are not fathomable to me. I'm not being rude, or arrogant. And as nice as it sounds to travel into a place like that after death, to me it is unreal, and impossible. Yes it is a curse in a way, because i do think about death alot more than other people. I am afraid of it because i know once it happens, that is it. Most days i'm settled with it, death is inevitable. But regardless of what someone says about the soul, the physical body is either cremated, or buried and left to go back to the earth. You leave behind all of your loved ones, your accomplishments, your travels, everything. I do believe in spirits/ghosts, but that is a separate story. No one has come back and said there is a heaven or hell when they've died. People who die and come back on the table are mostly already believers, who think the voice is god and the light is heaven. For the rest of us, the light is the big shiny thing that hangs above your body during surgery, and the voice/s come from loves ones and doctors. <slight pessimist.
