borg Sumerians didn't believe in an afterlife?
Advertisement
My history prof. Was talking about the epic of Gilgamesh and he said that the Sumerians didn't believe in the soul being eternal and that one of the survivors from the great deluge, I forget his name told Gilgamesh that only the gods can live forever and that the only way for us to attain eternal life is through are deeds!

Now this got me thinking that if the Sumerians didn't believe it why should I Tissue but of course I always have hope that there is something after death and we won't cease to exist cuz that would suck monkey balls lol.

Any spiritual masters with a phd in ancient history care to reassure me??

Though we die La Resistance lives on!

You should be prepared to accept the worst case scenario and hope for the best. In the meantime, keep learning.

RE: Sumerians didn't believe in an afterlife?
Nope, they didn't... Most ancient cultures accepted the fact that when you die, you die... Others believed in some kind of resurrection of the dead... a LITERAL resurrection of the physical body, even after decomposition... (this is even what the Bible teaches)...

The Ancients knew that the Soul (Living Creature) = Spirit + Body... The "soul" does not go anywhere after you die, the 'soul' is YOU, the the sum of all parts... if one part ceases to be, YOU cease to be...

to be 'immortal' within the sumerian ideology doesn't even mean to be 'aware' of your immortality, it's a sort of "living in the hearts of men because your deeds were remembered"...

RE: Sumerians didn't believe in an afterlife?
gilgamesh was part god. He thought immortality was his right....so him and a buddy...enkidu (i think) made a journey to the gates to fight for gilgameshs right to an eternal life. I think it meant he wanted to go to nibiru or the home of the gods.

A hard pill to swallow? Really? The religious elite want to tell us that we have no rest in life and we will have no rest in death... Death is the deepest sleep you can possibly imagine =)

My heart stopped 3 times and I was in a coma for 12 days once... I had the full-on out of body experience and everything... But when I thought about it... the moment I had this experience was the moment they were shocking my heart with the paddles and forcefully pumping blood into my brain and thus causing my imagination to manifest all kinds of crazy shit, even being partially aware of what was going on... NDE's are just dreams...

Yeah I heard that too! I wonder what they said? Maybe they took them out to seperate themselves from the Asian cultures, or
Maybe they fears what would
Happen if people knew it to be true and rose
Up because the had no fear of death anymore? Hmm it raises many questions Jhikpghf

NDEs are dreams?
MILLIONs say otherwise. Some have been dead for like 3 minutes but report HOURS of experience in another plane of existence.
MANY stories ALL saying the same things.....dead loved ones.....cities of light golden roads....funny thing is thats exactly what the bible says about the city of God.
I myself have had 2 OBEs....seemed pretty real to me.
I was wide awake both times.

Having had a relative die, be on the other side, meet 'whomever' while there, then return in a very different 'form':

Think blindingly brilliant golden glowing 'angel' or 'ghost'. One, that even a solid wall could not stop the glow from! Appear in front of me to give closure, pass messages on, and give very specific with exacting details that could not be known or mistaken messages to provide to her sister, her son, her husband, and my mom, and as well as some from other deceased family members.

But there's more: then be taken on a 'tour', literally riding the wind on the other side of the sky, to the edge of that beyond and back then into the homes of family members around the globe left me knowing some things.

There is a 'something' a 'somewhere' and all life returns to it; for some reason most of us forget that. Yet we know all it when we are there and even speak the same language when 'dead'.

You never really are dead by the way, you are just existing 'there'. Yet you and I can be killed.

I even know how.

Muslim, Jew, Christian, Atheist all are the same in the eyes of eternal truth.

They are all the same souls, no different from one another.

All differences being solely a product of man, a product of men, a product of those that would use this to divide or attack.

Or they may just not know; are stupid and mouthy perhaps.

Now knowing this above, why would I wish or ever need to follow any organized religion? When those very organized religions all of them condemn my family and I for exactly the reasons of events such as above. We are not to be tollerated, though I am no different a human than you.

Persecuted by the loving organized religions, by Jesus, Mohammad and Abraham themselves.

None of them have all the answers, they all believe they are right and not one of them acknowleges the others are just as right too.

I am a very spiritual man, indeed an event like that will change you forever.

Try having it happen again forty years later and being told you must change things in yourself, in your life.

Very spiritual, yet having absolutely no use for any organized religion whatsoever. This not an attack on them, for nearly all of them believe what they preach, and do it in good intent.

Personnally, when one of them comes to post about their experience on the other side, I will want to listen.

I will hang on every word and reread it twice.

Yet I fault none for their beliefs.

I fault them for pushing an organized religous agenda when they themselves can personally say nothing to confirm it from their personal experience.

Though I'm not an ancient history or theological scholar, I hope this gives you an insight into what awaits. Heartflowers

sounds like typical religious blackmail to me. kinda like the whole bullshit story about "original sin". you can't enter heaven unless you become a mind control slave.

i wonder what these "deeds" might have been. donating your life savings to the church maybe?

RE: Sumerians didn't believe in an afterlife?
yea. The immortality thing is really just about the fact that you're spirit goes on. Spirit is not the same as soul. And if anything, the same "soul essence" (which is personality) will probably manifest in another way after you die. but the 'consciousness' that is "you" identified as "you".. will probably not reincarnate.

If you're remembered in other's hearts then yea that's another way to see it. But it's not the same.


In fact IF you have past life memories it is MOST LIKELY DNA memory of past members of your lineage, or your subconscious making shit up to justify your emotional tendencies.
