What happens when we die?
Some say we are reincarnated.
Others say it's heaven or hell.
In fact both are wrong.
Because both are human constructions.
In life we do not experience Natural Justice - rewards for good behavior and punishments for bad behavior - which is a human expectation.
So we have projected this expectation into the afterlife creating heaven or hell or reincarnation to an easy life or suffering.
Both rely on the expectation of Natural Justice.
But Natural Justice is a human creation.
It is not part of God at all.
God is all good.
God is our loving Father.
And a father does not condemn his children.
God helps even those we would call evil.
God punishes no one.
Therefore there can be no hell.
And perhaps there can be no reincarnation either.
Certainly not a reincarnation which balances out our karma.
So what are we to think?
God is good.
He is wholly trustworthy.
He will not punish us.
Put your trust in Him.
And all will be well.
