When we look at our lives we often ask, What is real? Is the soul real, is our body real? The answer is both. Our soul is and always has been immortal. The soul lives on with our without a physical body. The soul is the part of us that is the spark of the Creator. The living soul is the continuity of life with or without a body. The fact is that there is never death for the soul.
More than an having an eternal soul, is it possible to have an immortal physical body? Many thousands of years ago it appears that humans lived much longer lives than we do now. Then things changed and a hundred years ago people lived only 40 years. Today with modern science the average lifespan has increased once again to 70+ years.
With all the recent breakthroughs in science it appears that soon the physical body could live to the ripe old age of 120+. Watch the news see all the ?New? scientific breakthroughs. Science is just now understanding the human body, the DNA. With these revolutionary new scientific discoveries we will soon see a dramatic extension of the human lifespan.
Science is just now beginning to prove what the Ancients have known all along. Extended life spans and physical ?immortality? will be possible in the near future. Possible for everyone that wishes to grow, evolve and learn. Not everyone will be willing or able to do the work on a spiritual level that is necessary. Not every soul will want to stay in the physical form for eternity.
The subject of immortality, the possibility and even the inevitability of eternal life, seems like science fiction. Yet the Ancient spiritual paths have predicted this time. The Kabbalists are probably the most vocal on the subject. See The Kabbalah Centre
There are select souls, that have come back to this planet at this time, that have a clear cellular knowledge of immortality. These people know that they can live in a human body as long as they choose, even if that means forever. Immortality does require a specific level of spiritual attainment.
One must be willing to work on their personal karma and gain spiritual insight into the everyday experience in order to obtain immortality. At first, the numbers of people able to attain this level will be few, yet the numbers will increase as more and more people understand the possibilities. Again, not all souls have chosen the path of immortality. Many will prefer the path of reincarnation into another form either on this planet or elsewhere.
Thousands of years ago, the Ancient Prophets foretold of major advancements in the consciousness of the people to make it possible to see the eventual demise of death. The time that they spoke of is here. The process has begun. Those of certainty will know. Through Wisdom, Understanding and Knowledge you can be free. ?Oh death where is your sting??
