LEAVING

AdvantagesN/A

DisadvantagesN/A

"...up. And we don't know, do we? Maybe there is a great marshmallow in the sky waiting for me to snuggle down in to when these old bones have given up the ghost. It's one of life's great mysteries, and I think, at the end of it all, all anyone can have is an opinon. A feeling, perhaps. A notion of what comes next. There are of course all those people who have had near death/reincarnation experiences, who have seen their grandmother, the one that ..." Read review

My paranormal family

AdvantagesLife goes on

DisadvantagesMaybe there's no end

"...that she wasn't going to do anything about it nor tell my mum because she was afraid of hospitals. If my mum hadn't overheard this conversation she wouldn't have had the chance to persuade my Nan to have treatment. My Nan made a full recovery but never believed my mum's story about her out of body experience; she reckons mum was listening at the door. As a young teen I was present at one of my mums paranormal experiences, it was quite amazing. ..." Read review

Choose life - it's entirely up to you Review with images

AdvantagesIt's up to everyone to decide for themselves, no compulsion

DisadvantagesConsequences

"...myriad chemical reactions. Why do we appreciate beauty? Why does music engage us on such a multitude of levels? Why is there a need of God? ==== PURPOSE OF THIS PIECE ==== As you may have deduced by now, I am a Christian and I believe that when I die I will have eternal life in Heaven with God, a place where there will be no more sorrow or pain or tears, only joy, love and life. So why am I writing this here now, and what am I hoping to achieve ..." Read review

Our last goodbye

AdvantagesFeel better for putting my feelings in writing

DisadvantagesBrings back tears

"...mam but I had to do it and she wasn’t well enough to travel back with me. On the day of my departure we were both very sad but both trying not to cry. “See you in three weeks’ time when I come back up for you mam”. It was Friday when I left my mam. Phoned her every night as normal. Then on the fifth night after leaving mam I thought our phone call was strange. Mam sounded strange and put the phone down on me without saying “I love you” as we always ..." Read review

Why have the lights gone out

AdvantagesI need to believe

DisadvantagesI'm afraid not to

"A year ago, I would have empathetically said yes, life goes on after death, many things happened in my childhood that I could not have put down to mere co-incidences. Over time, my beliefs have been questioned over and over again, leading always to the same conclusion. Today is the 1st anniversary of my mother’s death, mostly spent crying on my own and thinking back, but I am left without comfort. I need to explore this in stages. My Childhood. My ..." Read review

Maybe i'll see you one day.... *UPDATED*

AdvantagesIt would be nice to know for sure whether there is anything after we die

DisadvantagesBut then what if the place that awaits us after death isn't all that nice?

"...I recall having to do this just once (fortunately!). I can't recall what it was I had to talk about. It had traditional Christian views at its centre though. I had to read this infront of the school. At the time I really didn't care about what I was reading. I was more concerned about stumbling over my words. I was very shy as a child and the thought of having to read infront of the whole school was VERY nerve wracking. Looking back on it though. ..." Read review

LIFE EVERLASTING Review with images

AdvantagesCOMFORTING TO KNOW YOUR LOVED ONES ARE SAFE

DisadvantagesNONE

"Do I believe in Life after Death, well the answer has to be a defineate yes, I believe your spirit lives on and watches over us, your physical body has gone, but your spirit lives on. Before I go on to explain my views and feelings, you possilby need to know that I am a spiritualist and a working medium, so I link to two worlds together, thats the earth plain and the spirit world. I do this in Spiritualist Churches bringing evidence from the Spirit ..." Read review

More questions than answers

Advantages/

Disadvantages/

"...bitten with the bug to do a few non-profit café reviews for a change, I thought I'd have a go at the big one. This is a debate that I have been thinking about tackling for a while but when you stop and think about these things you often realise that you don't really know what you believe in. Having mused a while on the topic I have made the leap and will give you a few thoughts and conclusions from the mixed up mind of Steerpyke's. When thinking ..." Read review

Death can be fatal.....

AdvantagesMany ....( if there's an after-life )

DisadvantagesIf there's nothing after we die, why are wasting our lives now.

"...today… And only £1.50! That'll do for me…… dribble,dribble !.....make sure it's a rare one though, like to see the blood coming out of the center,….. The rarer the better! At this moment in time there are about 20 other Ciao members sat around, writing about all sorts of strange subjects, but not about the latest Ipod MP3 player or new toothpaste, hehe! (I may update later with who's in here, if they don't mind a mention, perhaps from my buddy ..." Read review

Its a mystery???????

AdvantagesA search for truth.

DisadvantagesNot liking what you discover.

"...another world. How many times do you hear, "This can't be all there is" or "There must be something else otherwise why are we here" We are here because the force of mother nature made our parents procreate, and those of us indoctrinated into religion at an early age have our minds conditioned to believe that there is a heaven and far, far worse infect our poor childlike minds with the fact there is a hell!!! What kind of sick puppy dreamed that one ..." Read review

I had 2 .....Yip

AdvantagesCant wait

DisadvantagesNone....Gotta be better than this

"Twice that happened to me! Life after death is the question and yes I believe. This is my 2nd review and I am registered disabled. I have been since 1993/4 (no sympathy thanks its ok) and in that year I had 1 experience and again a few years later. One very brief and the other very very scary. The 1st happened after I got out of hospital. I was still very unwell and was laid up downstairs on the settee. I had lost 5 stone in weight in ..." Read review

Are you still out there dad?

AdvantagesKnowing your loved one is well

DisadvantagesWhat if we're wrong?

"...what was going on nor do I think I was scared. I was puzzled when someone came to take me away to spend the night at my neighbours. Everything from that night onwards is a blur. I just remember things of many months after, probably two or three years later… Was I told he’d gone to heaven? I don’t know. Don’t want to ask as it still upsets me. Don’t think it did then because I did not know what death was…but I wonder how I felt when someone that ..." Read review

Its Death Jim but not as we know it

AdvantagesAdvantages of Death ?

DisadvantagesDisadvantages of Death ?

"...you burn these all you do is release the stored energy in the form of heat and light (also sound if its explosive) Might not the living things on our planet also be looked at as simply ways of 'storing' energy. Batteries if you like. When we eat plants and animals all we're doing is releasing their stored energy into a form that can be utilised by our bodies. We're like the old steam locomotive engines and food is our equivalent of coal recharging ..." Read review

Living your life for when it's over.

AdvantagesA peaceful haven for the grieving.

DisadvantagesWhere is the evidence?

"...have their theories. Personally I do not believe in life after death, I believe that we only get one chance, and one life, I believe that we should make the most of what we have been blessed with. And the mere proposition of ghosts and spirits roaming the earth undiscovered makes me laugh. Man has discovered how to clone animals, man has set foot on the moon, man has even gained the knowledge of how to prolong human life, and yet after all these ..." Read review

DisadvantagesThe pain and loss.

"...him very much as I do my mother,I've never seen them,but-my oldest son Matt,who is now 17 has felt and smelt my father.-he descibes his favourite aftershave;it's no big deal to him,but it gives me comfort to know that my parents look out for us-and visit sometimes. Matteo seems to have inherited the same gift from his grandad,but he doesn't go around broadcasting it. (peers and all that..!!sorry matt!) Well,I hope you have enjoyed hearing my ..." Read review
