For most of humen (and even before) existence, men have been terrified of death. To ease this fear, he has dreamed up paradises where he could live forever, and hells where his enemies would suffer forever. He has used the threat of hell and the promise of paradise to win converts and slay sinners.
Dheghemy, however, says that death is an end AND a beginning. The qi (pronounced “key”), or soul, of a man is tied into his body. Once the body ends the energy of qi is reborn into another body. But this new man is not like the old man. Since the body is a different body, the person is a different person, yet shares the qi of the old person.
The reason man fears death is because of the heaven-hell dichotomy of traditional faith. The believer constantly worries that the god of his faith will send him to hell after death after he is forced to confront god and beg for his eternal fate. And yes, this does sound like a condemned man begging a king to spare his life, to no avail of course. And indeed god is compared to a “king of kings” and a final judge whose ruling can never be appealed. And yes, this does greatly resemble the god-kings of ancient West Asia (Middle East), the birthplace of monotheism.
Dheghemy says that judgment is AUTOMATIC and that there is no begging involved. The qi is automatically slotted into the new body that will fulfill its next stage of learning. The reason that death should be embraced and not fought is because death is a necessary and natural part of the cosmic learning process. Men imagine themselves burning in a pit of flame for eternity, no matter how wonderful they were in life. Given such a fate, who wouldn’t want to fight until the bitter end? But the new life is one where they will not be the same person.
