vertical line I've heard after death the soul remains. where the soul remains there can be problems. However I have also heard there is also automatic freedom in death, so? I'm not sure I'm not dead yet.
It seems as though spirits have problems too. That is why committing suicide is so futile, the mind remains in tact after death so problems follow you.

I know from my only out of body experience that the mind remained intact with all its problems. I encouter problems even in sleep!

vertical line The dead have no problems. The dead also do not have:

Joyful time with playful children.
The pretty new green leaves on the trees in springtime.
Flowers.
Hot coffee with three spoons of raw sugar.
The Lord of the Rings.
Bananas with almonds and honey.
Good friends.
A hot shower.
Sex.
Helping people with kindness and caring.
That warm, pleasant weariness after good exercise.
A cool glass of water in summer.
A cup of hot cocoa in winter.
Fuzzy socks.
Deep breaths.
The vast, clear, peaceful sky.

vertical line i think they do have those things, what do you think is at the end of the tunnel of light?
i've read accounts on www.nderf.org (near death experiences) that said the spirits can obtain anything that was ever invented and show them on a "tv" screen.
