Beyond Life and Death (CD)

On this CD, Dr. Chris Tong gives a talk on his book, Beyond Life and Death.

1. You CAN'T Take It With You: Does your life have a purpose? If so, is it one that isn't going to get instantly ripped off when you die? Many of us spend our lives denying death, allowing ourselves to be completely consumed and distracted by our responsibilities, our indulgences, and our search for things we cannot take with us after death in any overt form (knowledge, accomplishment, fame, or friendship). But death is still coming. We get little support from culture, society, biology, or even conventional religion for becoming adequately prepared; indeed, we are actively discouraged from even considering the matter. In Western society, the “dying business” at best tends to help us come to the point of acceptance of death (when in fact we should already be accepting death right now, leaving us sufficient time to prepare for what comes after). And the “death business” tends to assist the living go on living rather than assist the dead in their transition, as more informed cultures do. This book sensitizes us to our mortality, and encourages us to start preparing now.

2. You WILL Take It With You: What will occur after we die? This question can be answered, on the basis of a large body of reports across the centuries — on near-death experiences, after-life experiences, reincarnation experiences, paranormal phenomena, and the direct awareness of Spiritual Masters — as well as by studying the laws of the psyche as we observe it in life, to predict its destiny after death. The report is not all roses, though. In fact, its conclusion is that there is life after death, and re-birth, but it is also likely that we are going to suffer greatly during the period between lives, unless we develop, during our lifetime, a powerful Spiritual practice that truly links up with God.

3. You CAN Take It With You: True wisdom takes into account while we are still alive both our mortality and what we are likely to carry with us after death (and the destiny that creates), and uses the course of a lifetime proactively, for the purpose of self-understanding, communion with That which is beyond life and death, and, ultimately, Awakening completely from the dream of life and death. We'll examine three of the key "problems" that will face us in the after-life — psychic attractors, psychic bullies, and the unrecognizability of Reality — and describe the Spiritual practice capable of dealing with them, not only after death, but in every moment of living.
