I had a woman ask me if cremation was okay for the body once she passed on. She was concerned that there might be a connection between what happened to the body here on earth and what happened to her in the afterlife.
I assured her that there was absolutely no connection between what happened to the body on earth and her experience after leaving it behind.
“You never were that body,” I reminded her. “You are a spiritual being, living a spiritual life with a spiritual individuality that lives forever at-one with God. To cremate the body is not to cremate you. You are spiritual. You always have been and always will be.”
