    Depends on the level of spiritual practices and level of consciousness. I believe the astral realms talk about in the theosophy community (esoteric community) have to do with dreams and astral projection. Inner practice accompanied by outer practice.

    I put my money on Jesus and the Book of Ecclesiastes. Live in the moment and learn what eternity is.

    Live a righteous life, do good and have a safe passage through death. Ecclesiastes [which translates as “the Preacher”] says nothing about an afterlife.

    Jesus said little about Heaven. It was in good shape and could take care of itself.

    For Jesus, salvation had nothing to do with Heaven. It was all about transformation in this life.

    After all, it’s here on earth where the problems are. And the majority of his teachings were concerned with poverty and the extreme income gap.

    In Jesus’ day, the poverty percentage was over 90%. The elites were made up of about 5 to 10%.

    Yes!

    Romans 10:9-13 King James Version (KJV)
    9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

    11 For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

    12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.

    13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose.

    Jim Elliot

    I don't really care.
    Jesus said little about Heaven. Again, Heaven is in great shape and can take care of itself.

    Again, it’s here on Earth where the problems are: disease, poverty, hunger, violence, etc.

    Everybody talks about heaven, paradise, the afterlife.

    The only thing I know is that I will die into God at the end.
