Ancestors watching over us....even the unpleasant ones???

Postby HopefulChild » Wed Mar 28, 2018 7:24 am

I've been thinking about this often recently.

Since my older brother passed away I think of him watching over me, pretty much every day. I know it happened for a period of time very distinctly, but as time has passed I've begun to wonder about those ancestors of mine who may have been unpleasant, and if they watch over us, but in a less than helpful way.

I imagine the state of the being continues on relatively unmolested in to the after life. It would have to if one were going to "watch over people" for any portion of time.

So then what about exceptionally petty or cruel people we knew?
I hadn't imagined that answers and wisdom were instantaneous gifts acquired at death. In my model those who were seeking truth and wisdom in life, are going to find the answers in the after life much easier, but not instantly.

So then again what about those petty people who stopped caring about others in life? How do they continue on in the afterlife? I don't believe in hell. Or a concept of perpetual entrapment or punishment that isn't entirely self inflicted.
Though it's possible that a great many people trap them selves in a version of hell while still alive, so they may continue that one in the next phase as well.

Could it be that people who are that limited in their scope of interaction with the universe and life, end up wandering in a blank canvas in the afterlife, totally self absorbed to the point that all else is rendered immaterial and essentially hidden?

What do you think?

I think a sociopath suddenly disempowered by death is probably stunned. They would go thru the normal life-review and can then accept to move on or stew a while. I imagine having to watch the Living & being unable to dominate would frustrate & probably wear thin & they'd want to cut losses & move on.
